Okay, so the prompt for today’s #GGBlogChallenge was about favourite recipes. I went off into a brief carbohydrate-laden daydream, then remembered that literally every single one of my favourite recipes includes chickpeas, so it would be a pretty boring list: chickpea salad. Chickpea burgers. Chickpeas. I started thinking about that age-old question I’ve been sick of hearing since I was old enough to be questioned about my moral food-related choices. I’ve been a vegetarian my entire life and have actually never eaten meat or fish. If you’re a vegetarian, let me know if you’ve heard some of these bangers. If…

I’m a rare species of person in that I’m not really keen on music and I’m still unsure of who or what FKA Twigs is. However, as one of those musical theatre people (but not one who does stretches right in front of you to show how bendy I am – mainly because I am not at all bendy and stretches hurt me deeply), I’ve been known to enjoy the odd soundtrack or two.

I have enough stability in my life to care for my ever-growing menagerie of…

I’m a busy bee, so this blog doesn’t always get the love and attention and premium themes it deserves. In my dreams it’s a glowy, beautiful space on the internet with dreamy OOTD shots and perfect flatlays. In reality it’s a lot of me bashing away on my laptop, struggling to find natural light to take photos, and refusing to post any picture of myself because I DON’T LIKE HOW I LOOK IN PHOTOS, OKAY? So…

I never thought I was going to go to university. I was all, “oh, I don’t feel like it”, “I don’t need to go to uni”, “I don’t want to live with people I don’t know”. I waited a year and a bit after I left college, intending to just get a job and live happily ever after like an education-shunning Disney princess. Unfortunately all that happened was I put on loads of weight, applied for over 200 jobs and got precisely 4 interviews, and I was BORED. I missed learning stuff; I missed being around other people and I…
