I loved Hello Giggles' writers' posts for National Poetry Day, particularly these ones on Maya Angelou and Sylvia Plath. Is it wrong to want to visit somewhere just because it looks super Instagrammable? Portmeirion in North Wales… Continue reading Saturday Share #114

You know I can't resist a good tag or trend, so I had to get in on the #threefictionalcharacters action. In case you've missed it, it's where you define yourself in three fictional characters in a meme/collage. According to this Hollywood Life quiz, I'm a foodie and so my spirit characters are Liz Lemon, Bilbo… Continue reading #ThreeFictionalCharacters

Item of the day: Sylvia Plath pin by Thread Famous from Etsy

Can people stop making awesome pin badges? I'm gonna end up buying a denim jacket and literally covering it! This Sylvia Plath one might be my new all-time favourite - it appeals to the angsty writer/bookworm in me. It's by Thread Famous on Etsy and is £8.00. I also love the Margot Tenenbaum pin -… Continue reading Item of the day: Sylvia Plath pin by Thread Famous from Etsy

Blog posts I’ve loved lately

I'm still not blogging particularly regularly at the moment (I'm working on feeling more awake while pregnant) but hopefully things'll pick up a bit while I have almost two weeks off for Christmas.

the bell jar by sylvia plath

Why I love: The Bell Jar

I remembered that she was often referred to in one of my favourite films 10 Things I… Continue reading Why I love: The Bell Jar
