Self-Care Sunday #23

Blogging is the rare bit of time I get to myself. I write for my own sanity more than any other reason and when I don't get the chance to write for a few days I feel a bit on edge. I don't like to write at my laptop in front of Jenson because I… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #23

Book review: Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw

Just before I started my A Levels I watched my first Audrey Hepburn film and I was instantly hooked. I devoured every film, bought every biography, posters adorned my walls and, eventually, I began to write about her life and career - first for my Film Studies essays and later for a couple of websites… Continue reading Book review: Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw

Saturday Share #100

Wow, this is my 100th Saturday Share! Well, it started out as a Follow Friday series but I really wanted to do Friday Favourites. Then I switched Friday Favourites to Little Loves and really could have posted those on Saturdays and switched these back to Fridays... Oh, never mind!

A Cornish Geek’s history of blogging

I managed to check into the Blogosphere chat again, saw the reveal of the latest cover star (another name I'd never heard of - can I even call myself a blogger?!) and Twitter soon revealed the topic of blogger controversy for the week: scheduled tweets in the wake of the… Continue reading Saturday Share #98
