The Little Things | 10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

Happy Sunday Everyone! It feels like ages since I last wrote a post. Since getting home from Cyrpus, I have started full-time work, and so for the last couple of weeks, I haven’t had a moment to sit and write for myself. I’m still getting used to the long days…

Pumpkin Picking | The Pop Up Farm

I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion – Henry David Thoreau I’ve never been pumpkin picking before. In fact, last year I didn’t even buy a pumpkin. Not one. I don’t know why because I had planned…

The Little Things | 10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

Happy Weekend! And hello from Cyprus. Sorry to make you all jealous but I’m sitting here writing this, feet up by the pool with a calippo, sweating in the midday sun. But somebody is vacuuming , so it’s not that peaceful. To be fair to them, I vacuumed this morning…

Feeling Rosy with Neal’s Yard Skincare

I have always wanted to try Neal’s Yard products (as I love anything that uses natural ingredients) I just never got around to actually trying any of them. That was until my skin began to feel a bit, bleurgh. Although I was cleansing, toning, and moisturising morning and night, I wasn’t…

Graduating & Life after University

SO THAT’S IT, I’M NO LONGER A STUDENT and I can’t really tell you how I feel because the truth is, I feel a whole bundle of emotions. I’m excited to start my career and wave goodbye to exams, but I also feel, well – lost. And I guess that’s…

Visit | Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door, Dorset

Who doesn’t love the British coastline? No one? I thought so. I have always wanted to live closer to the sea. The thought of just being able to stroll along the water’s edge whilst, let’s face it, being attacked by my own hair, would be a dream. I would love…

The Joy of Picture Books

I love picture books. You probably already guessed that from the title of this post. I’m not ashamed to say I wrote my dissertation on picture books. Not quite your standard literature essay topic. And if you’re thinking it must have been easy, it wasn’t. Believe me. But seriously, there…
