I decided that I wanted to try out a few different subscription boxes this year. I’ve had a few Reposed boxes (which I’ve now cancelled) but wanted something a little more substantial and friendly, so settled upon Books That Matter. I signed up mid-January, so had to wait until February for my box (which took … More BOOKS THAT MATTER SUBSCRIPTION BOX
It seems like forever ago that I wrote about the end of lockdown. I had no idea that we’d still be in one in March 2021, even with my cautiousness about getting back to normalcy too quickly. Luckily, we managed to see family and friends a few times during those few weeks of freedom, because … More THE END OF LOCKDOWN… AGAIN?
I was one of those people who bought Animal Crossing New Horizons on the day of release. I may have shed a tear of joy when Tommy and Timmy welcomed me to my new home.

I feel like an adult. Mostly. I still won’t answer or make phone calls, but I do think about things like mortgage rates and a five year plan. I don’t read YA anymore because it feels too young for me. I like learning things that might create an intellectual conversation one day with my almost-thirty-year-old … More AM I LEARNING MORE ABOUT MYSELF BECAUSE OF LOCKDOWN, OR AM I JUST TWENTY-SIX?
Sarah Everard’s case has sparked a huge, necessary, discussion about how women are afraid to be alone outside, especially in the dark. The following moments I am about to share are not unique.

I read the Harry Potter books about forty times apiece throughout my childhood (I even had a Harry Potter fan tumblr and wrote Dramione fanfiction…), but since leaving home at 18, I’ve only read them once – in 2014. I thought I should change that! As I haven’t read them in a long time, I’m … More REREADING HARRY POTTER AS AN ADULT
In 2018, Glamour magazine went from being a monthly glossy magazine to a bi-annual style guide, sharing the must-haves of the season ahead (SS or AW) as well as various interviews and articles relevant to the time. These beauty books weren’t readily available in most supermarkets, and so I have only ever managed to buy … More WHY I SPENT £30 ON BACK ISSUES OF GLAMOUR MAGAZINE
There is a gap between what I want my wardrobe to look like and what it actually looks like. I actually have a list of the things I want in it, which doesn’t include a few of the bits I own and includes a few bits I definitely don’t own. The issue I have at … More WHAT MY WARDROBE LOOKS LIKE IN 2021
I hardly wear makeup anymore, let alone post about it. Once upon a time, this blog was purely for beauty and I had hundreds of makeup product reviews, makeup looks and list content surrounding beauty.
