I love being creative. Unfortunately my actual creative skills are reminiscent of a toddler with a felt pen – dangerous and unpredictable, and will generally colour outside the lines by accident. Yep, I’m not the best drawer, colourer-inner (that’s definitely a word) or designer in the world but there are some people who are. They’re not me, just to clarify. Again. I’ve been ordering from some amazing small businesses lately – and please note, when I say small business I mean absolutely no disrespect whatsoever: the hustle is real for these girls and they are most definitely smashing it! Now,…

Hello, hi, it’s me, I’m actually writing a blog post for the first time in two months! I’ve been a busy lil bee for the majority of 2017; settling into and decorating my new house (painting walls takes AGES and I’m frightened of stepladders so you can imagine how well that’s going), working on my dissertation (who am I actually kidding, it’s due in 20 days and I have 800 words currently, smashing it) and pretending to be a giant snake in my 2-year-old drama classes (a game I instantly regretted when they decided I was “King Snek” and piled…

Well hello there, 2017! Here’s hoping you’ll be less hideous than your predecessor. I’ve been busying myself these past couple of days sorting out my Christmas presents, drinking excessive amounts of Shloer and trying desperately to burn the last of my Christmas candles (I failed. Miserably). I’ve been reminiscing on 2016 this week – here’s some nice things that happened to me – and I fancied doing another lil post. I’ve been having a think about some of my favourite stuff from 2016. I might venture into a lil beauty-themed version of this post, but for now: this is just…

What a truly hideous year 2016 has been. We’ve lost idols and icons (and one of my absolute favourite actresses/women/badasses Carrie Fisher – what a legend she was!) and a certain Orange One has been elected as the President of the United States… But 2016 wasn’t all bad! Looking back, it’s been a pretty good year for me. Here’s 5 reasons why… I bought a house! If you’ve been wondering where on earth I am and if I’ve given up on my blog entirely, fear not – I’ve been up to my elbows in paint and tiles and cutlery as…
