After witnessing a hectic social scene during our first hours in Liverpool, it was surprising to find the city was exceptionally quiet on the morning of Saturday 29th June. We walked just shy of half and hour through the streets without bumping into many people at all. Our intentions were set strongly on breakfast, specifically [...]
Some stream of consciousness written a couple of weeks ago... Never before have I felt so chaotic. I've become a person I thought unreachable: someone who loses her sense of time because she's having too much fun, doesn't second guess what she's doing and doesn't care for where she's going too much. If I were [...]
When May began the rain and cold still graced England. I was loathed to complain because firstly, talking about the weather fast becomes a stale topic. And secondly because I prefer the cold most days anyway. It lends itself to wrapping up warm, which is my favourite fashion. Although, the reason for it being on [...]
Hey everyone! I’ve been a little quiet on the blogging front this week, but believe something is coming your way shortly. Coincidentally I was thinking of writing about the idea of a ‘beach body’, but my lovely friend has beaten me to it. And done a bloomin’ fabulous job of it!
Those wonderful things that we go on to escape day to day life. To relax, refresh and rejuvenate ourselves.
But there’s the phrase that seems to be uttered over and over. Get beach body ready.
As I sit here in my piece of paradise, sunny Majorca, next to the pool with my feet up, a cold glass of cava and my book, I look around me. Everyone is different shapes and sizes.

Don’t get me wrong, well done to them for the hard work they put in to achieving a great body. But equally, when I was 21 I was very slim. I had curves in all the right places and could wear any bodycon dress and look great. When I hit my mid…

Everyone's ambling along. Walking down the cobbled streets your eyes are either fixed on not crashing into any crowds or up at the buildings. The colours are blocked and pastel and I like seeing the different patterns. Every time you look up there's a new one, as though the concrete figures are swimming with the [...]
Of late I am falling head over heels in love with my camera and the prospect of taking good photos. I thought I'd dedicate a page eventually on this blog to photos I have taken and want to share, but aren't necessarily needed for blog posts. The extras that otherwise become lost in my computer [...]
Hey! Long time, no book related blog post. Pretty shabby for a self-proclaimed bibliomaniac. But I can't wait to show you this book: 'Paperbacks from Hell' by Grady Hendrix. Originally I purchased this as a book to sit on the side and be dipped into every so often. While it's a beautiful book my expectation [...]
Growing up with the rise of YouTube tutorials I've seen a fair few 'routine' videos. I love watching that kind of content, but personally, I was never very good at having a routine myself. I find routines too restricting and they make me want to hide under the covers a little longer. However I will [...]
