Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

The last week has been a bit of a game-changer for me. Going along to Outlaw 2017 and reading Sarah Knight's first and third books have really given me a kick up the ass to work on my side-hustle in 2018. I reckon her second book (have I asked Santa for enough yet?) really will… Continue reading Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

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

More reasons to support small businesses this Christmas [Outlaw 2017]

Last month I wrote a post on why you should support small businesses this Christmas and I'm pleased to say that my Christmas shopping is nearly finished and approximately 75% of what I've purchased is from small businesses. I don't think that's too shabby, especially as most of that remaining 25% is Duplo and Peppa… Continue reading More reasons to support small businesses this Christmas [Outlaw 2017]

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

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

My life in photos: October 2017

Holy crap, it's time for another round-up already? Prepare for some cliched seasonal shots as well as a run down of my favourite blog posts and family pics from the last month. Not gonna lie, I was pretty freaking chuffed to start the month by smashing my Goodreads Challenge (2). I'm already pushing 60 titles… Continue reading My life in photos: October 2017

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

The 17 slogan tops I need in my life right now

Pushed to define my 'signature style', I'd say jeans and a tee or baggy sweater. I'm easy to please and fortunately my office has a relaxed dress code, so I get to wear jeans to work. Choosing an outfit in the morning takes minimal effort but, where possible, I like my slogan tops to reflect… Continue reading The 17 slogan tops I need in my life right now

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

An alternative 30 before 30 list

A few years ago I wrote a 30 before 30 list - a list of 30 things I wanted to achieve before I turned the big 3-0. And guess what? I'm a few weeks off that significant milestone and I haven't ticked most of them off. But it's ok because The Grown-Ass Women's Club* is… Continue reading An alternative 30 before 30 list
