Book Review: Origin

Happy Tuesday lovely! If you’ve caught up on my latest What I’m Reading post, you’ll know that I have been reading the latest Dan Brown – Origin. It’s been a while since I’ve done a book review but I have quite a few people ask me for my thoughts, so here goes!...

Top 10 Winter Films

How is it that in all the years I’ve been blogging, I’ve never done a list of winter/Christmas films?! Well, seen as it’s now November and we are officially in Love Actually territory, I figured now would be the perfect time! Just as a caveat – yes, most of these are...

Lest We Forget

At 11am this morning, like so many of you, I will be standing in front of a war memorial, a poppy pinned to my chest. And, as it does every year, my heart will break and tears will fall. For those of you who don’t know, I am a military child. My darling Papa is a (now retired) Royal Air Force...

Team GB – Part Two

Hello friend! How was your week! I’m back with week 2 of my trip home – a little later than promised as my internet went out – but better late than never! This week I was more than a little bit of a history nerd – so prepare yourself for photo overload! ...

Team GB – Part One

Happy Sunday friend! Last week, I promised you a run-down of my recent trip home. Well, here it is. Well Part One at least. If you’ve been keeping up with my Insta-stories, you’ll know that I recently went home for a month to see family. Yes, by the time I got home, I had been...

Book Club: What I’ve Been Reading Lately

I know, I know. It’s been far too long since I’ve updated this little corner of the internet. In all honesty, I lost my mojo. I would open a page, sit there and stare but no words would appear. So instead of torturing myself, I just didn’t even try. But then I went home for a...

The Weekly Edit #2

Hello love! We’ve got a fair bit to catch up on as I missed out on doing this last weekend. Not for any particularly exciting reason but that does mean you get a bumper double edition! There have been vodka margaritas, a new bedtime routine, baking, books and a new addition to the...

Book Heaven

So, as you know from my weekly edit, last Saturday I went to Lifeline’s Bookfest. Every year (or six months seen as they hold two a year) I go and feast on what’s on offer. In the past I’ve come away with anything from 2 to 20 books but this year, I felt differently. Y’all...

What’s in my bag

Hey lovely. It’ll come as no surprise to you that I love it when other people post these, either on their blog, Insta or YouTube and it occurred to me that I’ve never done one. And seen as I bought myself a new bag last weekend, and I’m loving it, I thought I’d share mine...

The Weekly Edit #1

So it won’t come as any great shock to know that I feel like I’ve lost my blogging mojo lately. And by lately I mean the last few months. I’ve also taken a step back from Instagram and not posted as much – which has been great for my anxiety and overall mental health....

The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Monday loves! How was your week? I’ll be honest, mine was a little stressful. New job overwhelm but watching Baywatch on Friday (if you haven’t seen it, go NOW!), dinner with friends on Saturday and baking yesterday was exactly what I needed! For years, I have been trying to make...

Happy June friends! Where the heck did May go? I’m fairly certain it was only yesterday that I was telling you about what I’d been loving in March and April and now it’s already June?! The new job has been full-on, to say the least. I feel like I’m just starting to find my...
