Another day, another book review. This is a book that has been on my TBR for quite some time. I remember seeing it advertised on Instagram before it came out and being instantly hooked. Whilst in the midst of Christmas present shopping, I found it in the back of my local bookshop on the reduced… Continue reading One of Us is Lying
There's nothing quite like starting a new year with a fantastic read and, for that reason, for my first post of the year it seemed appropriate to review this wonderful book. This little beauty has been sat on my bookshelves for quite some time and, when I came home for the holidays, I found myself… Continue reading The Dressmaker of Dachau
2017 is over. It went out with the usual bang, signalled by fireworks and excessive drinking, and from its ashes a new year is born. However, something else emerges from the ashes and it comes with such strength it seems unavoidable: New Year clichés. We all know them. This post itself is one of them.… Continue reading Trying to avoid New Year Clichés
Round two of the pumpkin recipes and this one I have to say is my favourite. I am a keen baker. To be honest, I'm a little too obsessed with it. It has become my unhealthy coping mechanism and, if I'm stressed, the house is normally littered in little bakes that I have made to… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes
I love autumn. I love the weather. I love the colours. I love the festivities. And I love the pumpkins. However, I really dislike the mess that accompanies anything to do with pumpkins - it gets everywhere! - and it always seems like such a shame to waste so much veg simply for decoration.

My - hasn't like been quiet over on this corner of the internet. To be honest, I feel like not only have I checked out of the internet for the last 7 weeks, but that I have also in someway checked out of myself. For the last month and a half, if you weren't a… Continue reading Half-term, Half-alive.
**WARNING: this post is incredibly self-absorbed, petty, materialistic and generally terrible. But I'd also like to think that it's strangely relatable. If not, I guess that just makes it even worse. You have been warned. ** I'm moving house in a couple of days and that, in itself, is terrifying. I'm about to embark on… Continue reading The Terrifying Presence of my Childhood Bed.
I have to say, I always have a special place in my heart for book tags. I don't know what it is about them that I love so much but I always think they are so much fun to do and read. When I was having a read of the blog posts I have missed… Continue reading The ‘Nope’ Book Tag.
I think, generally, I would regard myself as quite a happy person. Like with everyone, I have low moments, moments where the world gets on top of me and I react either by screaming or crying - or in extreme situations, screaming and crying. But - overall - I think I have a rather positive… Continue reading Ten Happy Things…
My, what a long time since I last wrote a post! Maybe I should consider making that my catchphrase as I utter it so much. I'm not sure I can say that a lot has happened since my last post but let's just say everything has got a little intense. For those of you that… Continue reading When did life have to get so darn confusing?!
