Our Folky, DIY-Heavy, Scottish-Welsh Wedding | rosie abigail

Blimey, it’s been over three months since I got married and I’ve shared barely anything about it over here! Life gets in the way as it often does and it has in this case. But now, with wedding photos ready and nostalgia for the best day of my life spilling over, it’s time. Let’s delve…

September Favourites 2022 | Second-hand Clothes, Sustainable Skincare and More…

Ooof September has been a wild month and not just in terms of British history and politics.  I’ve been in and out of doctor’s surgeries and hospitals, working on the start of a new academic year at my IRL job, and dealing with a leaking roof, a hole in the ceiling, and an out-of-bounds DIY…

Homestretch Goals 2022 | Final Four Months of the Year | rosie abigail

With just over three months to go until 2022 is over and out, it’s time for the Homestretch Goals! Inspired by the excellent Hannah Witton and her ‘Homestretch Goals’ series, I thought it was time to take stock, check in with myself, and see what I want to achieve before the year is out.

What *Is* PCOS? | PCOS Awareness Month | rosie abigail

How apt is it that I am welcoming PCOS awareness month with a PCOS flare up? It’s like my body has decided to try method acting. Sorry, I’m speaking in acronyms like some eighties businessman - let me clarify what I’m on about. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. A surprisingly common disorder that not a lot of…

Hot Girl Autumn. No, Literally – The Planet is Overheating | Rosie Abigail

Not to be someone to wish away the summer, buuuuut I’m actively wishing away the summer. Some people thrive in this heat; lying out in the sun, making the most of pub gardens, getting that Hot Girl Summer. I’m more of a Soft Girl Autumn type of gal myself.   I can’t put my finger on…

My Experience with the Implant | Birth Control | Rosie Abigail

We’re not on about breast implants today; I think my double Ds don’t need any extra help. I’m talking about the implant a la birth control! With the discourse surrounding abortion and birth control as rife as ever, including misinformation, I thought it would be good to share some real life experience, and to talk…

The Books That Made Me | National Book Lover’s Day 2022 | Rosie Abigail

Does anyone else struggle to read in everyday life? For months now, I’ve been struggling to pick up a book, despite having a TBR list the length of the UK. However, as soon as I had a week off for my mini-moon, I found myself raiding my bookshelves like it was nobody’s business.  During the…

Change is a very good thing… | Rosie Abigail

To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, “hello there”. To quote myself, “long time, no see, eh?” It’s been a little while since I’ve been in the blogging sphere, a few months in fact. I’m sorry for not heading off with an interim “I’m off!” post or a “see ya in August!” message. You see, I hadn’t planned…

May Favourites 2022 | Books, Style, and … COVID?

Well, this post is a little late. I guess that’s what happens when you get COVID... I’m on the road to recovery now, but at the very end of May, COVID hit me for the second time. And this time was bad. We had the paramedics out for my asthma, oxygen monitoring for a week,…

11 Travel Bucket List Ideas to do Before Hitting 30! | rosie abigail

One hundred and seventy six days. That’s how many days until my next holiday! It’s not like I’m counting down or anything… I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve slapped my hands on my desk, audibly sighed, and announced “I need a holiday”. With my hen do next month, wedding in July, and…
