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…

5 Reasons to diffuse Essential Oils this summer

It’s Aromatherapy Awareness week. Who knew? I didn’t even know such a thing existed and it just so happened I had already planned this post for this week. Perfect timing. For a long time, I have read about the benefits of using essentials oils and have always wanted to try…

Visit | Tring National History Museum

Summer is approaching at last. The days are long and light and it’s finally warm enough to ditch the layers and free the skin. All of a sudden, you find you no longer want to hibernate inside. It’s time to go out. Explore. Have a little wander somewhere new. There’s…

Books on my Reading List

For the last few years, I haven’t had any control over what I have read. Well, that’s my excuse for not reading as many books as I would have liked anyway. As an English Literature student, finding time to read the books I wanted to read, proved to be difficult.…

May Goals

I can’t believe it is May already. Where is the sunshine? It is still so cold and I’m spending the evenings wrapped in blankets with the heating on. I’m very tempted to book a one way ticket to somewhere warm. I am aware that I have gone on and on…
