“Welcome to Spring!”, she says looking at the snow falling outside her window. We love a bit of global warming to start the season. That’s a lie, we don’t love any bit of global warming. Anyway, enough of focusing on the crippling state of the world and how it consumes my every thought, and let’s…

For the under-twenty-fives who haven’t received their letter yet; people with tests booked who are nervous; non-cervix owning curious souls; and folks who are just plain clueless about it all. Don’t you worry, this post is for you. What is a smear test actually like? Well, it’s kind of like Hogwarts. You know, when you…

Becoming a Cat Mum | Adopt, Don’t Shop | rosie abigail

Introducing the being that has fully taken over my life in the best way possible - Pearl. That’s right! My fiancé and I are no longer a family of two, we’re a trio, baby! My partner Rory and I have been together for over seven years and as soon as we moved in together, we…

Renovating My ~Dream~ Boho Office | DIY & Renovation | rosie abigail

It’s transformation central here, folks! Back in the summer of 2021, my fiancé and I bought a filthy, unloved, terraced Victorian house that smelt of smoke, weed, and cat pee.

Finding My Creative Spark Again | Burnout | rosie abigail

For the past month, I’ve mentally felt as flat as a singular pancake. I’m not talking thick, fluffy, American style pancakes here, no no. I’m talking like a plan crepe on a plate. That’s not to say I’ve felt bad - crepes are great! It’s just that everything has felt a bit meh. I’ve been…

Six Life-Changing Books You Need to Read | Books & Literature | Rosie Abigail

"What are the books that have changed my life?" This is the question that has been on my lips all week - as I'm making my avocado on toast, drifting off in a mid-day daydream, and even when I'm watching the ultimate TV show, Criminal Minds. And it’s all thanks to the book Atomic Habits.…

By the time the last week of January rolls around, I am so ready for a new month to start. Surprise, surprise, 2022 is no different. January was just so loooong. Payday is ages away, expectations for a new year are always high, and the weather is bloody freezing. I was at least hoping for…

Six Big Ideas for a Sustainable Wedding | 2022 Wedding | Rosie Abigail

Folks, it is officially less than six months until I get married! That’s wild! It feels just like yesterday that Rory, my fiancé, surprised me with a ring and I screamed the house down with “What? Yes, OH MY GOD YES!”. Actually, it only feels like last year that I got butterflies in my stomach…

How I Made Self-Care a Habit | Wellness & Wellbeing

For someone who waxes lyrical about the importance of self-care and how self-care should be more than a bubble bath and watching a TV show, I am terrible at self-care. I will let myself burn out like a fancy Anthropolgie candle, and that’s not good when you’ve got a chronic anxiety disorder. The good thing…

I have to say, waking up to a miserable and foggy morning whilst you have a chest infection and asthma flare up is certainly made better by a notification from WordPress. “What notification?” you may ask. Alright you nosy lot - I’ve hit 500 followers on my blog!  Alright, I am well aware that this…
