    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 Sidebar without a Title

    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!

    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

    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

    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 or Cheating?

    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…

    North Wales #3 – Snowdonia National Park

    North Wales #3 – Snowdonia National Park

    Sorry I haven’t been around for a while. Took some time to deal with some personal issues, which I may or may not address later. Anyway, I thought I would give you the last installment of my time in Wales, concluding with a drive through Snowdonia. You’d be surprised at the amazing scenery you can see from the car and…

    North Wales #2 – Chester Zoo + City Walks

    North Wales #2 – Chester Zoo + City Walks

    I know Chester Zoo isn’t in Wales, but it is super accessible from Wales and only about a 10 minute drive from the actual border! I don’t support many zoos. It upsets me to see animals in captivity, especially when they are made to do shows. However, Chester Zoo is exactly what a zoo should be – it’s focus is…

    North Wales #1 – Scouting for Girls & Anglesey

    I’ve spent just over a week in Wales, and got up to some amazing stuff! Even though I lived here for nearly two years it was great to be able to return and be a tourist! First off, I went to my old Universities summer ball and saw Scouting for Girls live, who were surprisingly still on top form and…
