My ~No~ Year’s Resolutions! | 2021

Let me just put this out there. Does anyone else feel like a big ol’ failure at the end of January? Sorry, what a positive statement to start the new year with. I can explain myself though! I tend to feel deflated and thoroughly meh by the last week of the first month. It’s not…

How I’ve Learnt to Live with an Anxiety Disorder | Health & Self-Care

Put me up on a stage in front of hundreds, speech in hand, and I’ll own it. Plonk me down in a room full of strangers, I’ll fake small talk so good you’ll think I’m an extrovert. Give me a tight deadline and I will work, work, work until I get it done. But if…

November 2020 Favourites | Skincare, Style, Books, and More…

It’s been a good few months since I’ve posted a favourites! Four months in fact. Time really does fly when you are in a global pandemic… My last favourites post was for July 2020 - I had just turned twenty-four, had gotten engaged, and was trusting in the media that we would be out of…

Best Books to Give as Gifts for *Everyone* in Your Life | Books and Giftgiving

If you know me, I am one bookish girl, and I think there’s no greater gift than giving someone a book you think they’ll enjoy.

Little Ways I Am Taking Care of Myself in Lockdown | Lifestyle and Wellbeing

As I am writing out this introduction, I am in a big slump. Big brain slump, big life slump, big everything slump. Little, nasty, biting thoughts keep flapping around my head, and the lockdown blues have really settled in. Full on grey, sludgey, meh vibes. I want to see my friends. I’m aching to see…

Best Mid and Plus-Size Accounts *You* Should Be Following! | Mid-Size Style

Oof I’m back talking about a passion of mine! Now, I’m no stranger to blogging about mid/plus-size representation (being a mid-size queen myself) and I doubt I’ll ever stop talking about it. In fact, my “What is Mid-Size?” post is one of the most popular posts on Google about this subject (sorry for the brag,…

Seventies and Flower Power Themed Bullet Journal

Seventies & Flower Power Themed Bullet Journal | November Monthly Spread

It's been a hot minute since I last posted about my bujo on here! Well, we have been banned from doing anything so my bujo hasn't been able to do it's job of being a diary, that that might explain it. Still, this autumn I made a conscience effort to utilise my bullet journal once…

Staying Positive in Lockdown 2: Electric Boogaloo | Self-Care

Anyone else feeling like they are in an Orwell novel or a Black Mirror episode right about now? I know I am. Worldwide disease, countries on lockdowns, global leaders behaving like toddlers; I didn’t expect this when I wrote my New Year’s Resolutions. As of Thursday 5th November, England (where I live) has gone into…

You Need to Give Audiobooks a Try | Top Five Audiobooks on Audible!

Dear anyone who enjoys reading: you have to give audiobooks a go. No no, don’t scrunch your face up, hear me out. I didn’t think I’d enjoy audiobooks; I’ve never gotten on with eBooks, so the thought of a non-physical book made me stir in my seat and mutter ‘no, no, it's not for me’,…
