Effects of Buffer on my Blog Stats

If you’re not using Buffer, then you really bloody should be! This website is making a massive impact on my blog stats, they’ve never been as consistent as they are right now, so lets take a look at what it’s all about… This may seem like a sponsored post, but it isn’t. I just love it. I hadn’t heard of Buffer until…

Book | Confess by Colleen Hoover

She’s a big name in New Adult, but before I went on holiday I hadn’t read anything by her. Figuring NA romance would make for great beach reading, I picked this up before leaving for Mexico, and it ended up being the perfect introduction to NA romance that I was craving! STORY At 21 years old Auburn is living what…

Thomson and Riu Jalisco

We booked or little break through Thomson, to save on the stress of booking everything separately – which I usually do – but it was so much cheaper to go to Mexico from the UK through a package holiday provider. We stayed in a Riu hotel, a popular chain for Thomson, but I had never stayed in one before. As…

Bucerias and Eateries

Our hotel was on a massive stretch of beach, literally, right on the beach. Take a right out of the Riu hotels on Banderes Bay and walk for about 45 minutes and you come to Buceries, a little town that we visited one morning. Colourful sports bars! Flee market entrance Bucerias doesn’t have much. The plaza is lined with friendly…

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…
