    What I’ve Been Reading This Year

    Today I thought I’d talk you through what I’ve been reading this year. I’ve been a bookworm from a very young age, and I don’t think that will ever change. This year, one of my goals was to read 20 books, I’ve so far read 13 so I’d say I’m reasonably on track. When I recently mentioned the possibility of some reviews, a few of you seemed keen, so here you go. I’m not going to talk about every single book I’ve read so far because that might get a bit much. So here are the ones that have stuck out recently. Everything I Know About Love- Dolly Alderton This book…

    March To Do List

    So we’re already in March, the year is steaming on ahead and I’ve decided to jot down everything I want to achieve this month. A kind of March to do list.  It might be interesting to you, it might not, but it also then holds me accountable to tick everything off my virtual to-do list for the next few weeks. A lot of my goals are very much University related, any student will tell you that around Easter is an absolute nightmare for deadlines and they all seem to come at once. So that leads me nicely onto my biggest and most important aim for the month. I want/need my…

    February Favourites

    With the end of February drawing near, I’m hoping that Spring may finally be in the air- it’s about time we had some warmer weather instead of the relentless biting cold. I’ve managed to accumulate a few favourites over the past few weeks, although admittedly not as many as January, but then again it is a shorter months so I suppose that’s to be expected. Not to mention I’ve spent the last couple of weeks glued to my laptop, a slave to my degree, so that really cuts down on the time to find new things I like. First up, a foodie favourite! I’ve had the Tanya Bakes book by…

    Big Magic Book Review

    So I’m pretty certain this post is my first proper book review. I’ve mentioned books before and briefly given an overview in favourites posts but I’ve never focussed a post solely on one book before. I’m putting it out there now I will go into a bit of detail, but in theory because it’s not fiction there can’t really be any terrible spoilers. You might have heard talk about Big Magic over the last couple of years, and rightly so. I first heard about it through word of mouth from other bloggers and YouTubers, it seems to be a bit of a bible to us online lot. It’s written by…

    6 Ways to Relieve Stress

    Self Care is a big thing nowadays, everyone is telling you to practice it, and for good reason. Self care is essentially looking after yourself both physically and mentally and making sure you’re in a good place. There’s also a bit of contention around the subject, often due to people’s differing mental health. To some people self care genuinely is sticking on their favourite candle, running a bath or having a walk. Whereas for others it may be a case of removing themselves from social situations which make them feel uncomfortable or severing ties with toxic people in their life. There is no right and wrong way of doing it,…
