A few of my favourite things #59

I've decided to mix things up a bit on the blog this week. I've done away with my weekly Saturday Share, in favour of a Follow Friday shout out on Twitter and Instagram, plus a top five in my monthly newsletter. Now that my hours have changed at work I've also decided to change my… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #59

Stationery porn: Gemma Correll Papergang box #3

I had to cancel my Papergang subscription a while back because we don't really have much in the way of a disposable income these days. But when I saw that there was a new Gemma Correll box on the way, I knew I had to sign up again. I did the ol' 'put-it-on-the-credit-card-and-worry-about-it-later' thang (not… Continue reading Stationery porn: Gemma Correll Papergang box #3

Books for feminists of all ages

Something happened to me when I had a baby. I've always been very strong-willed, demanded equality for women and am quick to counteract 'banter' but this determination and passion has evolved somewhat. I've become more aware of the gender stereotypes enforced on children and how women are treated differently as they get older; regardless of… Continue reading Books for feminists of all ages

When I saw photos of the first Gemma Correll Papergang box I was so disappointed that I didn't order it. She's my favourite illustrator and I think she's just generally freaking awesome, so when I heard there was going to be another collaboration I signed up straight away. There was no way I was going… Continue reading The Gemma Correll Papergang #2

A Cornish geek’s birthday/Christmas wish list

I've finally done it! I've picked the ultimate gifts for my 29th birthday and Christmas stocking. Is 29 too old to still be doing Christmas lists? I've already been asked by two people if there's anything special I'd like for my birthday (less than four weeks away, FYI - and four weeks before Christmas) and… Continue reading A Cornish geek’s birthday/Christmas wish list

10 things I love about Gemma Correll

I said I'd be back today with another post on mental health. You'd be forgiven for thinking that's not the case, looking at the title of the post, but this woman has done so much to normalise mental health issues and to encourage people to recognise that it's ok not to be ok that she… Continue reading 10 things I love about Gemma Correll
