Links I Love 01

Hello world wide web! :) I hope you're all having a great Monday! It's been a cold day in here - strong winds and no sunshine. But anyway, it's still a happy day. After class, we went to this new store that sells US brand products for a cheaper price! I got a bottle of a Victoria's Secret perfume for only 120 pesos! Also, there were huge bottles of lotions, shampoos, body wash and more for less than a hundred pesos! Coolness! They also sell clothes that are still a bit expensive even if discounted. I wanted to buy but I currently can't afford a shirt for 500 pesos. Haha!

But anyway, I would like to introduce to you perhaps a new weekly feature on the blog - the Links I Love! :) Yeah! Sometimes, when I have nothing to blog about, I go to random sites in the interwebz to kill time - even if I have a bunch of homework to be done. Whoops, bad! Most of the time, I find these sites actually very helpful and entertaining so why not share them? So today I'm going to share to you a few ones that I have loved ever since! 

If I ever do get into facebook (which I rarely do now), I go to two wonderful pages I love the most! First is Beautiful Minds - a page full of quotes. :) When I feel down or lonely or just need some inspiration, I go there and read! Here are some for you:


Another facebook page I love so much is Word Porn! I have actually learned a few words such as petrichor and brumous and some other words that describe what seems to be undescribable (if you know what I mean). For example, you might wonder what the scent of rain on dry earth is called in one word - it's petrichor. Oh, and a ring left on a table by a cold glass is called a cullacino! :) 

This site led me to Other-Wordly, a tumblr site that is full of strange and lovely words not just from the english language but also from other languages. Actually, this is where most of the words from Word Porn came from. :)

I didn't know there was a word for warmed leftovers!

I have tons of ebooks in my desktop and most of them (yeah all of them) are downloaded from this awesome site called The Book Valley. I found it perhaps years ago and it was still addressed as Novels4You. Isn't the new name beautiful? If there was a place called as such, I'd want to live there! Don't you? :)

Have you been to one of these sites already?
What other sites have you found interesting lately? :)
