Almost the end of the journey

I've been neglecting my blog, just a little bit. Posts confined to what I can snap and share from my phone, not really anything in the way of words. It is my MSc, you see. The final project is zapping my ability to think in terms of anything other than post conflict reconstruction. But I'm almost done. Three weeks from now and I should have handed my final report in. Done, dusted and ready for marking. The day of reckoning cannot come soon enough. But in the meantime I have a mere 10,000 words to finish and edit.

Then maybe I can start thinking of things blogworthy again!

New pretties!

Look at these lovely pretty rings I bought in H&M! Only 5 EUR! The bottom one is a little big but the size down was a little too small.
I think I might save up and get these made out of pewter or silver at some point. The design is fab!

The end of one thing is the beginning of another

So yesterday Google announced that they are closing down their Reader service in July. The announcement has brought a lot of devotees out of the woodwork!

I know a lot of bloggers like Bloglovin' but I won't be switching to that due to the apparent lack of a good Android app. I consume most of my blogs on the move, or in a quiet 5 minutes during the day and it is not always possible for me to read on a PC.

Through British Beauty Blogger I found Feedly, which handily will import all your feeds from Reader automatically, so you don't have to do anything.

It presents the feeds in a more magazine style format, which is colourful and I have to say, more interesting than the Reader layout. I'm still getting to grips with it but I do like what I see.

I'm also trying out Flipboard but I haven't played with it much yet. When I've decided which one I like more I will write a more detailed post on the one that has stolen my attention!
