You Do You

'You do you' is an expression I've heard a lot lately, mainly from a sassy AF colleague, and I've longed to have that kind of attitude. Now, thanks to everyone's favourite potty-mouthed anti-guru, it's something I've started to adopt in my day-to-day life.

Planning for 2018 with Busy B #BusyQueenB

I was recently selected as one of Busy B's Brand Ambassadors and to say I was excited would be a huge understatement. Could there be a more fitting collaboration than one between a nerdy blogger and a stationery brand which not only produces functional and fun products (a vital requirement of every item of stationery… Continue reading Planning for 2018 with Busy B #BusyQueenB

Self-Care Sunday #36

You may have noticed a lack of self-care posts over the last fortnight. Not gonna lie, I've not had a lot of time for self-care, despite my insistence that everyone should be able to find at least half an hour for themselves each week. We all have our bad weeks. What I've learned this week,… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #36

One minute you can be wanderlusting over new places to add to your travel bucket list and the next you can be weeping over someone's personal account of a heart-breaking experience.

Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

The last week has been a bit of a game-changer for me. Going along to Outlaw 2017 and reading Sarah Knight's first and third books have really given me a kick up the ass to work on my side-hustle in 2018. I reckon her second book (have I asked Santa for enough yet?) really will… Continue reading Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

Be beautifully organised in 2018

I'm a sucker for a cute desk accessory but I also understand that space is limited and it can be counter-productive to have too much clutter. Fortunately this beautiful desktop calendar from Bureau Direct is beautiful and compact - a must-have for anyone who likes to keep an organised and inspiring desk space. Good Morning… Continue reading Be beautifully organised in 2018

Lit Chat: An alternative book club

I'm not a member of a book club but, as a book blogger, I'm a member of various online groups where I love to discuss what I'm reading and share recommendations. I receive a lot of ARCs and love taking part in blog tours. Seeing everyone's reviews popping up at the same time is a… Continue reading Lit Chat: An alternative book club

More reasons to support small businesses this Christmas [Outlaw 2017]

Last month I wrote a post on why you should support small businesses this Christmas and I'm pleased to say that my Christmas shopping is nearly finished and approximately 75% of what I've purchased is from small businesses. I don't think that's too shabby, especially as most of that remaining 25% is Duplo and Peppa… Continue reading More reasons to support small businesses this Christmas [Outlaw 2017]

The Power, Taylor Swift and magic painting #LittleLoves

And just like that, another week's over! I've got two weeks of #LittleLoves to catch you up on as I abandoned last week's post in favour of celebrating Fountain Pen Day. Cos, y'know, it's me.
