Life Lately #5

Life Lately #5

I’m back with one of my infrequent updates! I can’t believe January is nearly over already! Whilst Christmas now seems like a distant memory, this month has seemed to fly by at the same time, although I can’t say I’m sad to see the back of it. I always find January to be quite a gloomy month, and this one has been no exception. For one thing the weather has been very cold and dreary here in England (more so then usual!), and whilst every year I hope for snow, yet again it’s just been rain, rain, and more rain…. Read more »

5 Things To Love About New Year

5 Things To Love About New Year

Happy New Year everyone! Despite the festivities that generally accompany the start of a New Year, I personally tend to find it quite a depressing time of year. It signifies yet another year gone by, and often there’s that feeling of ‘how the hell is it that time of year again?’ and ‘where has all that time gone?’ It also doesn’t help that January itself can be a somewhat grim month, with the cold, wintery weather not even being offset by the excitement of Christmas on the horizon. However, there are also a lot of positives to starting a New Year,… Read more »

Life Lately #4

Life Lately #4

It’s been so long since I’ve done one of these posts! Although I guess I’ve been kind of lazy all round in terms of blogging this month: it’s certainly gone downhill from my super productive November. As I imagine is the case for most people, the lead up to Christmas has been pretty hectic. Despite my best efforts, I ended up leaving a lot of my Christmas shopping a lot later than I would have liked, and as I work on a supermarket delicatessen it gets crazy busy around this time of year! All I want to do these days… Read more »

Are you a serial hobbyist?

Are you a serial hobbyist?

Over my lifetime, I’ve had a fair share of wide ranging (and sometimes unusual) hobbies, the only two of which I’ve ever really stuck with being reading and writing. I don’t know what it is about me, but I have a tendency to suddenly become super excited about a random new hobby, and then drop it just as quickly when I either A. realise I’m no good at it, or B. just become bored with it. There’s even a bit of a running joke in my family about me and my mad ideas. My mum tends to humour me and… Read more »

Life Lately #3

Life Lately #3

  Life: It seems like so long since I’ve done one of these posts! Probably because whilst things have been pretty hectic recently, it hasn’t been for any particularly interesting reason. Work has just been crazy due to us being super understaffed, and I’ve been busy trying to sort out moving in with my boyfriend. Whilst it’ll be lovely when we’re all moved in and sorted, actually finding somewhere and dealing with all the boring, admin stuff is just such a pain! Not to mention Christmas is now creeping up on the horizon, which means I’m really going to have… Read more »

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 terms of sport and stuff I am the least fit person ever, so the idea of me going to the gym was pretty laughable until this week. However, a new gym opened near me recently that’s only £5 a month,… Read more »

How I’ve Survived 3 Months Without WiFi

How I’ve Survived 3 Months Without WiFi

OK, so maybe ‘survived’ is a little dramatic, but in this day and age internet access is considered virtually essential by most people, and that includes me! Yet somehow I’ve made it to almost three months with no WiFi, which would have been absolutely unthinkable for me a few months ago. And with no end in sight to my internet-less state, I thought I’d let you in on the secrets of how I’m surviving in the modern age without WiFi… I’ve read lots of books. OK, so I’ve always read a lot of books (that’s why I’m a book blogger… 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 just hate taking photos of myself, so can’t be bothered updating it with every change (the fact that the above picture is just of a few boxes I’ve had left over from various experiments just goes to show how many different… Read more »

New Year’s Resolutions 2016

New Year’s Resolutions 2016

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! I always seem to have really mixed feelings about the New Year: on one hand it’s slightly depressing as a marker of how fast time is flying by (I can still remember the change of the millenium – I was only seven at the time, but still! How the hell is it almost 2016!?), whilst there’s also a certain positivity attached to it through the promise of a fresh start and new beginnings. This year is the same as ever, as I feel slightly reluctant to let go of what was a pretty good year… Read more »
