Turtles All the Way Down, the giggles and a Christmas giveaway #LittleLoves

I've been super proud of myself and my blog this week. I often suffer with Imposter Syndrome but I'm starting to feel a lot more confident in my writing and worthy of the praise I've been receiving. 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

Friday Favourites #19

This week's Friday Favourites is a bit of a watching/reading/listening update as I haven't really been out and done much. I know, shocking, right! You might have noticed it's been a bit quiet on the old blog too. I've had a string of days where Jenson has gone to bed 9-10pm and I've been too… Continue reading Friday Favourites #19

What I’ve been watching lately: Part 1 of 2

Although I'm not getting to the cinema much these days, I'm watching a helluva lot at home, especially now I'm on maternity leave. I thought I'd share my favourite TV shows with you in case there are some you've been missing. This week I'm focusing on the 'nerdier' shows - spoiler free. Enjoy! I've just… Continue reading What I’ve been watching lately: Part 1 of 2

Highlights of the week

This week's post is a bit longer than usual because I completely missed off some of my bookmarked posts last week! Silly, Emma! Also, I have discovered Bloglovin! But rather than making this post ridiculously long, I'm going to do a separate post in the week for some blogs and posts that I've fallen in… Continue reading Highlights of the week

Goodbye 2013, hello 2014!

I've just read back my hopes for 2013 post and I don't think I've done too badly. This year, I didn't set myself resolutions, rather I made a short list of things I wanted to achieve. Here's how I cracked on with them: 1. Learn to sew I might not have actually learned to sew… Continue reading Goodbye 2013, hello 2014!

Batman! Na na na na na na na na…

I'm going through a phase. It's arguably an odd one considering my age and gender (I'm a girl and I'll be 25 in a few weeks) but I'm properly obsessed with Batman! As a kid, I loved watching the old, camp TV show and movies. And I'm a huuuge fan of the Chris Nolan films.… Continue reading Batman! Na na na na na na na na…

Fictional female role models

I got to thinking the other day about the TV shows that I watch and I realised that they feature some pretty bad-ass, strong women in leading roles. The Mentalist, Fringe, The Big Bang Theory and Chuck all feature great female characters. And those that are no longer in production, such as Buffy the Vampire… Continue reading Fictional female role models

Why I love: The Big Bang Theory

I mentioned before that The Big Bang Theory is one of those shows that I really didn't care for in the beginning but grew to love. Now it's one of my favourite TV shows currently on air. There's not really one reason why I love it. I suppose I could try and sum it up… Continue reading Why I love: The Big Bang Theory
