Pacific Coast Mexico

I really needed to beat the January blues and escape the miserable UK weather so the other half and I booked up for a cheap holiday in Mexico. And I fell in love. Mexico is a absolutely wonderful country with so much charm. I hadn’t expected to love it as much as I did, and as someone who religiously has…

Thoughts on Sexual Assault

I’ve said before on my blog, in a post titled ‘I wore make up, am I single or cheating?’ that I don’t think about feminist issues much. I had believed that as a woman living in Britain, my concerns regarding attitudes to women were best placed to those living in countries with poor human rights records.  Then I realised that…

Book | To All The Boys I’ve …

Looking for a light-hearted YA romance with a main character who makes a hell of a lot of wacky choices? I got you covered, BUT as this is a book review, I must go into all the things that I did not like about this book, however they seem to be frequent problems that I have with YA in general.…

Everything I Read in 2015

2015 was the first time I had ever reached my Goodreads (account here), reading a total of 30 books. It doesn’t seem like too much compared to seasoned book bloggers, but I spent the entire year also doing a Masters course. Now that’s over, I’ve doubled this years goal to 60 books, although I actually think I might smash that!…

Design Tip – Adding an Image to your …

The whole time that I’ve actually gave a damn about my blog design (around two years) I’ve been constantly nagged by the lack of option to put an image into my sidebar without needing to put a title in. Now call me simple, but I just worked out how to get around this issue… When you try to save an…

How to Read More on a Budget!

Wandering around Waterstones, lusting after all of the big beautiful books, is one of my favorite things…until my basket starts to creep up to hundreds of pounds and I realize that with the rate of my reading habits I cannot afford to splurge £10 on a single book. Luckily I’m now skilled in being a savvy book shopper, and haven’t…

Book | Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

When I closed the book upon completing this in June I wanted to cry. I completed this read in June and have wanted to review it ever since, but the more books I’ve read since this the more that I’ve realized how strong of a lasting impression this left on me. It was haunting, disturbing, and unsettling – but also…

Why Museums are Cool as F**k

Today I noticed on Twitter that #MuseumInstaSwap was trending and I had a little stalk of the gossip. If you’re a fan of beautiful architecture then go and take a look – the magic of Instagram has managed to turn something inherently “uncool” into something of magical hipster art. Don’t hate, I’m all about that hipster love! Museums are some…

I Wore Make Up – Am I Single …

I usually don’t bring rants to this space, but I need to clear my head of something I’ve been observing recently. I never usually comment on feminist issues, body image debates, and so on – I try to follow a simple self motto of, ‘do what you want, know that I won’t judge’, and I also don’t expect to be…
