The owners previously ran jewellery stores in Truro and St Ives and have recently made the move to online jewellery subscriptions -… Continue reading Your Silver jewellery subscription [review + giveaway]

#FeministBookFortnight: A wish list

I re-joined my local library days ahead of Feminist Book Fortnight and now my world has suddenly opened up in terms of reading potential. I've been struggling with a budget recently which has curtailed my spending on anything other than bills and food and now I can read again - beyond the titles which lovely… Continue reading #FeministBookFortnight: A wish list

Saturday Share #47

This morning I discovered that today marks the start of Feminist Book Fortnight, so of course I've rescheduled a bunch of posts for the next two weeks. I can't let an awesome campaign like that pass me by! But what exactly is Feminist Book Fortnight, I hear you ask? It's a celebration of feminist books,… Continue reading Saturday Share #47

Friday Favourites #46

Over the last week I've really appreciated how lucky I am to live where I do. It's easy to assume that Cornwall is simply stunning scenery and borderline tropical but we actually live in a pretty poor part of the county. Fortunately no amount of second homes and closed high street stores will ruin the… Continue reading Friday Favourites #46

How I use my bullet journal to track my reading

Between tracking reviews of books I've already left, tackling my growing TBR shelf and prioritising books on my never-ending wish list, my bullet journal comes in pretty handy. Sure, I have my Goodreads app and Amazon wish list but it's so nice to have everything in one place. And colour-coded! I use my bullet journal… Continue reading How I use my bullet journal to track my reading

What Jenson has been reading lately #2

Jenson is a massive bookworm and it's hardly surprising, given that one of my favourite pastimes as a kid was going to the library and taking out the maximum amount of books. It doesn't bother me that the TV is nearly always on when we're at home and he knows how to use my smartphone… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #2

Saturday Share #146

This week has been a bumper week of inspiration in the bloggersphere. I'm now on 11 days in a row away from the office and I've found so many great posts on slower living, growing the blog and experimenting in the kitchen. Yep, I said experimenting in the kitchen! Since my maternity leave ended more… Continue reading Saturday Share #146

Friday Favourites #45

Wow, what a week. It was my biggest working week for a long time, right between two weeks of annual leave, so it was a good thing I felt semi-rested beforehand and had a bit of a break to look forward to. Don't worry, in amongst the long days there were some fun times too.… Continue reading Friday Favourites #45

Blog tour: Days of Wonder by Keith Stuart

Sometimes you read a writer's debut novel and you just know that you'll want to read anything else published under their name. That was the case for me last year with Keith Stuart and A Boy Made of Blocks. Fortunately I was offered an ARC of his second novel, Days of Wonder*, which is released… Continue reading Blog tour: Days of Wonder by Keith Stuart
