The Lazy Gal’s Skin Care Routine | rosie abigail

I’ll put it out there - I love skin care. I always feel relaxed and refreshed and pampered after giving my skin a good cleanse. But I’ll also be honest; I’m pretty lazy. I used to pretend that skin care was one of the things I was faaaaar too busy to do, as I was…

Becoming the Woman I Want to Be | rosie abigail

This is me; Rosie Lewis, blogger, theatre maker, over-thinker, allergic to nuts, has a tendency to fall over. In all honesty, I quite like the woman I’ve become. She’s intelligent, creative, kind-hearted, and loyal. She’s a great cook, can sing you a nice song, and will offer to proofread your essays. The woman I’ve become…

Real Self-Care | rosie abigail

When I think of the term ‘self-care’, my mind conjures up images of bath bombs, lavender, wine, blankets, and television. In fact, if I have a self-care evening, it tends to go something like this; jumping into a hot, bubbly bath, applying a face mask, and cleansing my face within an inch of its life;…

What’s In My Bag: Allergy Edition | rosie abigail

I swear, 2010 was the year of 'what's in my bag' videos on YouTube. That’s not a complaint - I was obsessed with them. I'm not too sure as to why I was obsessed with them, but I guess it's because I'm a nosy bugger. I'd marvel at the fancy notebooks these vloggers had, and…

Five Books That Changed My Life | rosie abigail

It’s well known that I bloody love books. I mean, my undergraduate degree was in English Literature & Drama Studies, so I would have been hard pressed for three years if I didn’t. I can’t put a finger on exactly why I love books, but I think that may be part of the answer. To…

My Winchester (Through A Lense) | rosie abigail

Winchester, Hampshire. Ye olde capital city of the United Kingdom. Home to the world's longest Medieval cathedral. Childhood city of Frank Turner and Colin Firth, and the resting place of Jane Austen. It also happens to be where I call home. Home, for me, begins in my flat. It's a light dappled sun trap in…

Why I am Running the Race For Life… | rosie abigail

Hello, my name is Rosie; I am an avid reader, keen photographer, blogger, theatre maker, and I am woefully unfit. Last month, I had an asthma attack that resulted in an ambulance trip, multiple oxygen masks, IVs, X-rays, and medication. This left me unable to leave the house for almost two weeks whilst I regained…

Bujo-ing for Beginners! | rosie abigail

What is bujo-ing? To quote the official bullet journal creator, it is an analog system “to help you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.” To quote me (Rosie Lewis, avid bullet journal-er), “my bullet journal is my baby and I cannot live without it”. That may be a little bit…

Childhood Rooms and Change | rosie abigail

I don’t live in my childhood bedroom anymore. I haven’t lived in my childhood home for nearly six years. My family sold that house in Caldicot to move to Abergavenny for my mum’s job, where I gained a new, smaller room. I also gained a room at my grandparents, where I stayed to complete my…
