My Fuck Budget

Apologies, if you've not read Sarah Knight's The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck, the title of this post might seem a bit odd. Let me explain. Following the success of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Sarah Knight wrote this book, subtitled 'How to stop spending time you don't have doing… Continue reading My Fuck Budget

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

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. So here's a look at what I've been loving lately. Read: The Power and Wild. I've read a lot of… Continue reading The Power, Taylor Swift and magic painting #LittleLoves

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

My 2017 birthday/Christmas wish list

In case I've not mentioned it enough already, I turn 30 at the end of the month - eek! People have been warned against surprise parties, speeches, singing and any memorabilia with my age on but, ya know, presents are always gratefully received. I'm not a monster! Now that I'm old there's nothing I really… Continue reading My 2017 birthday/Christmas wish list

Unleashing my inner film geek

You might not know this but I used to be something of a film buff. Through my early teens I'd be at the cinema at least once a week catching up on new releases and, upon discovering Empire Magazine at the age of 15, I decided that I wanted to be a film critic. I'd… Continue reading Unleashing my inner film geek

The Cursed Child, The Walking Dead and indie film soundtracks #LittleLoves

This week I've been battling a poorly child, a serious lack of me time and debating whether or not to get out the winter coat. Here's a look at the sunnier side of the last seven days. Read: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child - and it nearly wrecked me, almost on a level with… Continue reading The Cursed Child, The Walking Dead and indie film soundtracks #LittleLoves

What Jenson has been reading lately

I'm not the only lucky bookworm in the house who gets sent books to review - Jenson does too! Here's a look at what we've been reading lately. Jenson loves anything interactive and board books are still our style of choice, making these the perfect titles. Up first is Buildablock* by Christopher Franceschelli.

A Glorious Freedom

I can remember turning 25, admittedly a few years ago now, and being shocked to find that I was no longer classed as a young creative - that label is for the 18-24 bracket. But what if you're in your 30s, 40s or 50s and still haven't found your life's calling or true passion? What… Continue reading A Glorious Freedom

If you follow me on social media (links in the sidebar to the right there >>>) you may… Continue reading Turtles All the Way Down, the giggles and a Christmas giveaway #LittleLoves
