Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a community of bloggers all create posts around a common theme. Everyone is welcome to get involved. Feel free to join in!


Today’s topic is: Top Ten Non-bookish websites

I spend way too much time on the internet when I should be (and actually want to be) spending time doing other things like reading books or writing a book. But, alas, we live in an age where there are distractions aplenty right in the palm of our hands via teeny, tiny computers.

These are the websites I go to many, many times each week.


Pretty, pretty clothes. And bags. And shoes. And accessories. And random household items. Seriously, it’s a happy, happy place.


I check my email. A lot. I subscribe to too many newsletters and whatnot to not check my email. Also, if you’ve emailed me and I haven’t gotten back to you – sorry! I sometimes lose things in my inbox. I promise to get back to you soon. I’m setting time aside this weekend to clean up that little corner of the internet.


I know. This is kind of boring to mention. But I grew up in Alberta, then went to university in British Columbia, then moved back to Alberta, then moved to Toronto, and then moved back to Alberta again (I’m an Alberta girl at hear!), but to a new city. Facebook is how I keep in touch with my family (like my cousin in Taiwan) and my friends (like my girls in Vancouver) who are all over the world.


I have a board full of cute clothes for my future children. And believe me, they are not showing up for a looong while. But I still have a board. And I have one for pretty house decorating even though I live in a little two-bedroom rental apartment. That’s right, I’m a product of my time and I can easily spend hours falling down the rabbit hole of Pinterest. Do you think that’s where Alice went?


I decided to put this one in the middle of the list rather than at the top. It really should be at the top. I kind of live there. In a creepy, lurking sort of way.


I just started using Feedly and I’m excited to see how it makes following blogs easier. I’m trying to move toward reading and commenting on other folks’ lovely blogs more and this seemed like a great way to find interesting posts to read.

7. Google Play Music

My husband signed me up for this music service. It seems pretty great. Especially when I  opened it up on May 4 and there was a Star Wars playlist ready and waiting for me. My office mate was very confused as to why I was listening to such intense music.


Again, more pretty things. And interesting things. And weird things.


It’s full of interesting and inspiring articles about making the most of your career and reaching your goals.


I’ve begun spending lots of time here as I’ve begun delving back into design. There are so many amazingly talented people out there! Are you one of them? Send me a link!


What are your most visited websites?


  1. I feel you on gmail, man. Too many emails, but I can’t keep up with them! I need to start unsubscribing from all the travel and clothes emails because I don’t need to read them anymore. 🙁
    Star Wars music! Ahaha, that’s so cute!
    I listened to Pirates of the Caribbean music for *ages*! And then pretty much anything Hans Zimmer, and now I really like Peter Gundry. 😀
    I’ve never heard of the Muse, but I frequent whenever I’m in need of a pick-me-up or some inspiration!

  2. tumblr, The Beta Branch (a site for fanfic writers to edit each others writing), tumblr, youtube, tumblr…

    • I have considered Society6. It’s on my to do list. But I keep getting pulled into books or writing projects. I need to get on there soon. Thanks for the reminder!
