Sunday links #8

Some seemingly less cultural links this week...

1 This chick's got style
A recent blogging discovery, Yara's 'online fashion diary' is right up my street and perfect for inspiration.

2 What Ali Wore
It seems that 'What I Wore Today' posts are everywhere (and admittedly, I'm no stranger to them) but this sweet little blog features outfits of retired doctor Ali, snapped by photographer Zoe, in Berlin. A dapper character with a great repertoire of poses, this is enough to melt any fashionista's heart.

3 Frank Ocean
On Friday, I managed to grab two tickets to the hottest show in town - Frank Ocean at the Brixton Academy, in July. The first date sold out within minutes so I managed to nab mine for the second date on the walk to work, crossing my fingers that my 3G would hold out. If you don't know much about Frank, he's part of the crazy Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA) rap/hip hop collective, who, to be honest, aren't really my cup of tea. But Frank, with his mix of soulful hip hop, is out of this world. Last year, he came out as gay with this incredible open letter - worth every second of reading.

4 100 calorie chocolate brownies
Yep, you heard me right. Rosie, of The Londoner, posted this insatiable recipe that I'm definitely going to make this weekend. Gooey brownies that're only 100 calories? Yes please.

5 Bastille
Everyone's being going mad for them recently, and rightly so. Britband Bastille have captured that irresistible combination of addictive vocals and soaring guitars. Their new album, Bad Blood, is the perfect soundtrack for the ever elusive summer.
