Autumn is coming

It's getting darker earlier, I've switched to jumpers and boots and there's a definite nip in the air. It's almost the time of pumpkins, bonfires and Christmas shopping, so I've been thinking about what I want to do with Jenson before we welcome the festive season: 1. Do another pumpkin patch photo shoot (here's last… Continue reading Autumn is coming

personalised my golden ticket book review

Book review: Personalised My Golden Ticket from Wonderbly [+ giveaway]

When I saw on Twitter that Wonderbly had just released a new personalised book for fans of Roald Dahl I knew this was something I had to review.

Self-Care Sunday #29

My blog is one of the few areas of my life where I like to be consistently busy - it gives me a reason to keep working on it rather than slacking. Plus regular collaborations are great for my self-confidence; I must be doing something right! The blog is also the part of my life… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #29

Saturday Share #111

As much as I consider myself a lifestyle blogger this little blog seems to become more and more stationery and books obsessed. Not that I'm complaining. And my blog reading seems to be much of the same. I was surprised earlier this year by how much I enjoyed Raven Boys and I love the nerdy… Continue reading Saturday Share #111

Read: This week I've been reading an ARC of Pep Talk for Writers, due for release next… Continue reading Blogosphere, my TBR and dreamy jumpers #LittleLoves

Feed With Confidence with Lansinoh [giveaway]

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by a PR about a post on breastfeeding with confidence and I was completely upfront: I didn't/couldn't breastfeed and so didn't  feel comfortable writing about something I hadn't experienced. But the campaign isn't necessarily about breastfeeding. The campaign is called 'feed' with confidence and they were happy… Continue reading Feed With Confidence with Lansinoh [giveaway]

Roald Dahl Day 2017

Roald Dahl Day 2017

Happy Roald Dahl Day! You all know by now that I'm a sucker for a nerdy day and what better day to celebrate than Roald Dahl's birthday?! I've been a fan since around age seven, when we had The Twits read to us at school. It was my favourite Roald Dahl book until very recently,… Continue reading Roald Dahl Day 2017

water in may by Ismee Amiel Williams

Book review: Water in May by Ismee Amiel Williams

I think it's safe to say that I've not been this moved by a young adult book since The Fault in Our Stars. Ismee Amiel Williams's Water in May* certainly tugs at the heart strings but not in a gratuitous way. This is a book that will at the very least have you biting on… Continue reading Book review: Water in May by Ismee Amiel Williams
