Life Lately #2

Life Lately #2

Life: I’m back with another life update! Hooray! I guess the main news these last couple of weeks is that I joined the gym, and whilst that may not seem like big news to people who don’t know me in real life, it’s actually pretty crazy! Although I like nice countryside walks and things like that (basically, Pokemon Go-ing!), in… Read more »

Are readers born or made?

Are readers born or made?

Back in college I studied Psychology as one of my A Levels, and one of the aspects I found most interesting was the idea of nature vs. nurture. I think it’s fascinating to think about whether the aspects of your personality are inset within you at birth, or whether you acquire them as a result of your upbringing and life experiences, and I’ve… Read more »

A Trip Up Mount Snowdon

A Trip Up Mount Snowdon

First things first: apologies for the simply AWFUL photograph of me above! Anyone who read my Life Lately post a couple of weeks ago will know that my friend and I were going to do a charity walk up Mount Snowdon, and let’s just say we had to battle the elements to do it, hence my bedraggled state! And thanks… Read more »

Life Lately #1

Life Lately #1

Lots of bloggers seem to do weekly or monthly updates on life, blogging and reading (I know the Sunday Post is a popular one), and as an incredibly nosey person, I always enjoy reading them! I kind of wanted to start doing some kind of update post myself just to share what I’m currently reading, and what I’m currently up… Read more »

Bookish Fashion

Bookish Fashion

Back when I was in high school, I was a pretty wild dresser. Emo fashion was in its heyday and I was a big fan, so I would commonly be seen sporting shredded jeans and stripey tights, not to mention band t shirts and brightly coloured ties (yes, I apparently thought I was Avril Lavigne). I don’t know what happened… Read more »

It’s my second Blogiversary!

It’s my second Blogiversary!

I can’t believe it! Another year has gone by, and Boats Against The Current turns two today! When I started out blogging I was kind of doubtful as to whether or not I’d actually manage to stick with it (I’m a bit of a serial hobbyist!), so I’m pretty pleased that two years later I’m still going. I started this… Read more »

What’s in a bookworm’s bag?

What’s in a bookworm’s bag?

I always see these ‘what’s in my bag’ posts on fashion and lifestyle blogs, so I thought it would be kind of cool to do a bookworm edition. Prepare for a long post though, because my bag of choice is generally a large tote bag, and I like to carry an epic amount of crap around with me! For ages… Read more »

Are you an introvert blogger?

Are you an introvert blogger?

I’m a major introvert, and by that, I mean that I find being around large groups of people or people I don’t know particularly well absolutely exhausting. Unfortunately I work in a shop, and so I am pretty much forced to interact with other people for 9 hours a day (you can tell by the word ‘forced’ just how much… Read more »

The Six Most Common Reactions To Bright Hair

The Six Most Common Reactions To Bright Hair

So today on the blog I’m going wildly different: I’m going to be talking about hair. In particular, bright hair. As you may have noticed from my picture in the sidebar, I have a bit of a penchant for dyeing my hair bright colours, and it changes quite a lot. In fact the blue is actually two hair colours ago, I… Read more »
