Here’s to strong women.

Rebel girls

Unfortunately, these stories… Continue reading Rebel girls

Sure, we might still be under a Conservative government and Trump is President but… Continue reading Make a difference

Book review: Like a Queen by Constance Hall

I'm not normally one for reading non-fiction, preferring instead to lose myself in an imaginary world. But I'm such a huge fan Constance Hall and her hilariously relatable blog that I just had to read her book. My friend, Sophie, was quick to order Like a Queen as soon as it was released in Australia… Continue reading Book review: Like a Queen by Constance Hall
