Exploring Cornwall: Tremenheere Kitchen

A few weeks ago I headed over to the Tremenheere Kitchen for the first time. Yes, I've lived in Penzance for nearly all of my 30 years on this planet and had never been to the Sculpture Gardens or this incredible restaurant. Well, that certainly won't be the last time I visit. I'll be honest,… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Tremenheere Kitchen

Book review: One More Chance by Lucy Ayrton

Earlier this year, I reviewed Lisa Ko's The Leavers, the first title from Dialogue Books, an imprint of Little, Brown. The publishing house is giving a platform to distinctive and marginalised voices, shining a spotlight on stories for, about and by readers from the LGBTQI+, disability, working class and BAME communities. My latest review copy… Continue reading Book review: One More Chance by Lucy Ayrton

Stationery porn: Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy notebooks

You know what's better than a notebook? A nerdy notebook! So when I saw that a collection was being released alongside the fab Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy book, I knew I needed to add to my stash. The collection contains three notebooks, each with 64 lined pages. Celebrating three iconic characters from the… Continue reading Stationery porn: Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy notebooks

A few of my favourite things #65

I'm really enjoying this blog series as it's turning into a bit of a weekly gratitude post. While I'm not able to go on weekends away, dine in fancy restaurants, or treat myself to shiny things, I'm incredibly fortunate that I'm able to work flexible hours and spend quality time with my son, I have… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #65

Review: Focused Fox Goal Notebook

I'm quite a goals-oriented person. I like to have something to work towards, I'm just not very structured when it comes to figuring out how to get there or reflecting on my various methods. So when Focused Fox sent me one of their Goal Notebooks* to review, I saw this as a learning opportunity. Prior… Continue reading Review: Focused Fox Goal Notebook

My birthday and Christmas wish list 2018

With my birthday just a few weeks before Christmas, it's about this time of year that I put myself on a book buying ban and send Santa a little list of titles which have caught my eye, plus a few extras (typically beautiful books, sexy stationery, pretty prints and slogan sweaters). Of course, like most… Continue reading My birthday and Christmas wish list 2018

What Jenson has been reading lately #4

One of my biggest achievements when it comes to raising Jenson is his love of books. He always chooses a bedtime story (usually the same one on repeat for a few weeks) and at the end he immediately says "read it again!". He's deep in a Paw Patrol obsession at the moment, so we always… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #4

A few of my favourite things #64

I'm definitely feeling the seasonal festive vibes. As Halloween shifts into Christmas, I can start to feel the excitement in the air. Of course, it doesn't help that we found Jenson's Christmas hat yesterday, so no doubt he'll be wearing that every day for for the next six weeks! Here's a look back at some… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #64

The Writer Says book review

The Writer Says

I love books, but you know what kind of books I really love? Books about other books. And writing. Most writers are readers and there are few things we love more than to find a kindred spirit who understands the struggle of writing. Whether you've just started NaNoWriMo, battled through Blogtober, or are prepping for… Continue reading The Writer Says

Trevaskis Farm pumpkin patch 2018
Cornwall, Lifestyle

Happy Halloween

I'm a sucker for seasonal traditions. We first took Jenson to the Trevaskis Farm pumpkin patch in 2016, then again last year, so of course we had to pop back before Halloween rolled around. I panicked at the start of last week because the farm had sold out of pumpkins and I really wanted to… Continue reading Happy Halloween
