Gaping Gaps in Knowledge

You know how a lot of people have these massive gaps where some common knowledge or skills should be? Well, I’m one of those people. Over the years I’ve discovered I’m lacking some essential information from time to time. And that’s what I want to talk about today. Because it’s perfectly alright not to know…

My March Books

I read 3 books in March which took me to 10/30. I’m 1/3 of the way there guys! Whoop! Anyway, I know there’s only 2 books on the picture and that’s because the third one has been travelling from person to person since I finished it. Having found it quite enlightening and useful, I’ve passed…

Lily, hold on!

‘Lily, hold on!’ ‘What a brilliant piece of advice,’ Lily grunted, more to herself than to Poppy who’d called out to her, as it was almost impossible to hear anything over the wind whistling in her ears, not to mention the deafening noise the dragons made. She was currently hanging from a gigantic red one’s wing…

Some (weird) things I don’t like.

I thought I’ll keep the title to the point. Over the years I’ve realised that there are some things that I don’t particularly like and today I thought it’d be great to share these things with you. I’m not sure why I thought it’s a great idea, but just hear me out. Some of the…

You Beautiful Thing

This month I thought I’ll try out You Beauty Box. It is another monthly subscription box, HOWEVER, there’s quite a big difference between this and other boxes that I’ve tried so far. You see, usually it’s a surprise what I get in a box. With this one though, you get to choose what you want from…

Literally shaking with anticipation and excitement

To be honest I can’t believe I’m even writing this, but I feel like I need to share it with you lot. I’ve just reached the final hundred or so pages of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy and I feel like I REALLY want you to be a part of it. I can’t remember when I was…

Of life in general, briefly. / Ups and downs

Hmm. It’s really weird what I now consider to be my ‘downs’ as they’re actually more of a ‘not that up’. It’s weird to explain, if you haven’t experienced it. But even on my days when I feel like I can’t really be bothered to do anything, which before would’ve found me in a dark…

A Fantastic beginning to April

My goodness, the weather has been absolutely amazing! So sunny and warm and mmmmm. And I think that my April Lookfantastic beauty box design sums it up pretty well with a gorgeous sunny flower on it. As usual, my Lookfantastic beauty box came accompanied with a travel sized issue of Elle magazine and Lookfantastic’s own…

Rice Krispies Easter Eggs

As Easter’s only around the corner now I’d love to share one of my little Easter treats recipe with you lovely people. I don’t actually really celebrate it myself, it’s more just about the cute bunnies, decorating eggs and having egg tapping contests. Eggs. What a weird word. Anyway, for some reason I have a couple of…

Looking back, I’ve come so far. (Anxiety/Depression)

Hi all! I wrote this post months ago but it never felt like the right time to put it up. Well, today it hit me – I haven’t felt the effects of depression for quite some time now and my anxiety has gone down a lot. And then I started to think back to some of my…
