Rebel girls

This year I have been inspired by so many rebel girls - writers, politicians, activists, actresses... There's a reason why 'feminism' is Merriam-Webster dictionary's word of the year and why a group of brave women have been named as Time's 'person' of the year. It really is the year of the women. Unfortunately, these stories… Continue reading Rebel girls

They're two and a half and three and… Continue reading Blogosphere, Man Down and Christmas crafts #LittleLoves

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. Sarah Knight, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck… Continue reading You Do You

Blog tour: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

It's not often that I'll read a book that I don't know much about. I'm usually hooked by an intriguing synopsis, have already read something by the author, I've fallen for a pretty cover or, if it's being reviewed everywhere, I want to know what everyone's talking about. It wasn't the case with Celeste Ng's… Continue reading Blog tour: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
