August Degustabox

Hellooooo! It is time to unbox yet another Degustabox. I’m glad that I’ve finally caught up with them and won’t be posting the august one in September. Feels right to do it now. This box was only delivered to me yesterday and I’ve done my absolute best to try as many of the things from…

Chapter 4 – The Hunt

Alice circled around the buildings, all thoughts of self gone. She was focusing on the people below her. She spotted a young boy with messy jet black hair walking next to an absolute giant of a man. She soared past them, they weren’t her target today. Had they looked up, they would’ve only seen a…

Glossy August

Hellooooo! As you may have guessed, this is my August Glossybox post. I actually cancelled my subscription last month, thinking that it’s time to try something new, but after seeing this month’s box I decided I need this in my life and resubscribed. I’m quite glad I did 🙂 Batiste, 2in1 Dry Shampoo & Conditioner…

July Books

Still no better title for these posts. I’ll keep working on it. I read 4 books in July, bringing me to 22/30, which means I’m way ahead of my reading challenge! It was another complete mix and match of a month when it came to my choice of books. I’m starting to think there is…

Fantastic Looking August

Yes, it’s that time again! I almost said that time of the month but… you know. It just sounded wrong somehow. Anyway, I thought it’d be nice to take a little break from all the serious writing I’ve been doing here recently and explore my oh so pretty beauty box. So let’s get to it….

Chapter 3 – All That Glitters

Forcing herself to put one foot in front of the other she made her way to the door. It was mind numbingly slow going. It was the only way Alice knew. Being made to leave her sanctuary – the only place where she couldn’t hurt anyone – was not something she was going to speed…

Chapter 2 – The Deepest Pit

Alice knew she had to get up. Staying behind her shadow wasn’t an option. Inexplicably, as excruciating as it was, she had to keep going. Giving up was physically impossible. She’d tried. Again and again. Impossible. She had to get on her trembling feet, resting with her hands on her bony knees half way up,…

Chapter 1 – The Making of Alice

When Alice was little, she was usually rather on the merry side. She rarely cried, she considered her failures little more than plot twists and she was always looking for ways to prove herself. She needed to be the best at everything. Everything was a competition. She even made family dinners something of a race…

More Food!

Oooooooh yes. This is actually my July Degustabox, but as I only got it when we got back from our holiday during the last couple of days of July, I decided not to rush it and instead try as many things from it as I can before writing about it. I have to say I’m…

What a Crafty little creature

I made something! With my own hands! So proud. Sooooooo proud. It’s been ages since I’ve made anything, so this little project was oh so welcome. As my husband (Hahaha, it’s still very funny to say that, I’m so not used to having a husband) got me this set of really pretty brightly coloured yarns…
