Indoor plant collection 

One of the things I miss about living in my own place is having my own garden to play with. It may sound strange but I love garden centres and used to enjoy planting new purchases in my garden, and decorating it with garden ornaments. Since living back with my parents I have more of an indoor plant collection to take care of, but of course I also enjoy helping them out with their own garden – weeding, planting bulbs, picking plums off the tree and watering plants as we get into the Summer months.

Sightseeing in Bristol ft. Paper Bag Co*

Living in The Cotswolds I have my fair share of cities to choose from for a shopping trip or a bit of sightseeing. From Bath to Oxford and Bristol to Cardiff, I really am spoilt choice.

Today marks the anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer which first aired in the USA back in 1997. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know Buffy is one of my favourite fandoms.

So it would be wrong of me not to celebrate in someday, right? So in celebration of Buffy’s birthday I thought I’d revisit an old Facebook tag (which has been doing the rounds on Read More…

Favourite books (as an adult) | World Book Day

Today (March 7th) is World Book Day, a day dedicated to encouraging reading among young people, but also a day celebrating authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world. To celebrate I am sharing my favourite books (as an adult) with you, having already covered my favourite childhood books (which you can read here).

Favourite things to do in Leeds | Guest Post

As the weather gets warmer I find myself taking more day trips and, in the Summer months, weekends away.

Today the lovely Jess is talking about her favourite things to do in her hometown of Leeds. Jess is a lifestyle blogger who talks about fashion, travel, food and her life.
