Hygge Season | rosie abigail

In my world, Hygge Season is officially here! And it turns out, I was all about hygge before I even knew what it was... To give you some background, hygge (pronounced hyoo-guh) is a Danish word that can’t simply be translated into English. But then, it is more than just a word. It’s a concept…

What I Wore in Florida (in November!) | rosie abigail

As a British gal, when I hear the phrase November, I instantly think of cold weather. Even when I booked a trip to Florida for November 2019, I assumed the weather would be Spring-esque at a push; perfect for jeans, a light jumper, maybe a midi skirt on some sunny days. Boy, was I wrong…

Dealing with Imposter Syndrome | rosie abigail

"Imposter Syndrome". I’ve been seeing this phrase pop up all over my social media the past few weeks - “anyone got tips to help deal with imposter syndrome? xo”, “it’s an imposter syndrome kind of day”, “reaaaally feeling out of place at this conference #impostersyndrome”. Every time I see a Tweet or post like that,…

Drinking Around the World at EPCOT!| rosie abigail

(Disclaimer: my partner and I are sensible adults, of legal drinking age in the UK and USA, and we did not get drunk doing this challenge. We shared each drink we purchased, had food along the way, and carried around our trusty water bottle to stay hydrated. Get watered, not slaughtered, folks). Long time, no…

Real Self-Care for Students | rosie abigail

In the land of undergraduate (and postgraduate study), a cold chill has fallen across the kingdom. Assignment titles have been released, all are behind on the reading lists, and even the strongest of students have succumbed to the flu. Stress levels are peaking, and people are forgetting what normal sleeping hours are. Two years on…

My 2019 Vacation Reading List | rosie abigail

I’m so excited, I may actually burst! Alright, that is severe exaggeration but it is kind of close to how I am feeling. At the time of writing, I have only ten days left to go until I travel to Florida for a two week holiday. Whaaaaat?! I still can’t comprehend the fact that I…

Alternative Halloween Ideas | rosie abigail

(I've just realised this title makes it sound like I will be discussing emo and indie inspired Halloween plans, which I am unfortunately not - although, I think I am on to something here...). Anyway - It’s spooky time! Time for pumpkin carving, Beetlejuice, mulled cider, and a heck tonne of sweets. It’s also when…

How to Get That ‘Work-Life Balance’ | rosie abigail

It’s fair to say that I am a busy bee. I work full time in Higher Education, run an arts and theatre company on the side, blog throughout the week, am completing a part-time Masters, and trying to maintain strong health and fitness, personal relationships, and not burn out (goodness, even reading that makes my…

September Favourites 2019 | rosie abigail

Finally, we are moving away from the awkward ‘need a jumper in the morning, and shorts in the afternoon’ weather, and into turtleneck season! With September done and gone, I deem Autumn to be well and truly here. Autumn is when I thrive; I’m a rainy day, hot cup of tea, crispy leaves kind of…

Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag | rosie abigail

Last month, I was scrolling through my blog feed and a post immediately caught my eye. I excitedly scrawled down the title in my blog planner, to be saved for another day. Lo and behold, the post was 'Adventures of a Bibliophile’s' Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag! I have never done a tag, let alone a…
