First of all, just a lil side note: I feel like I’m really struggling to keep on top of blogging and life at the moment, hence the lack of recent posts. A lot has been going on lately, I got a new job (woohoooo), I’m in the process of moving into London (double woohoo) and I’ve just got back from a trip to Copenhagen (blog posts pending). I’ve also recently…

Admit it. Since you started blogging you’ve defo thought about how great it would be to be a full-time blogger right? Me too – tbh I can’t think of anything better to call ‘work’ than writing about my life from the comfort of my own home. Surrounded by snacks and blankets too, obvs. Anyway, back to reality. Keeping up a blog alongside a full-time job can be time-consuming and sometimes…

(N.B I had to post this from my iPad againnnn as my laptops being difficult, so apologies for the crap stock image thnx x) So this post is going to be different to the usual kind of things I write about. Instead of writing about my weekend in London, or five winter destinations you have to visit (shameless self-promo lol) this post is going to be different in that it’s…

2017 is in full swing already, and while I’ve already written about my general life goals for 2017, I thought it would also be interesting to come up with a blogging plan for the year. Y’know seeing as I’m trying to take blogging a lil serious now, it can’t hurt to give myself a little guidance right? That way, I can track how well I’m doing, see what’s working and…

It’s 2017! And, it’s that time of year again where everyone and their dog makes the same new years’ resolutions (drink less, eat healthier, join the gym – you know the ones) that get forgotten about and then brushed under the carpet as if they never existed. I’m not really big on new years’ resolutions, but think it’s always good to keep a mental (or literal, in this case) note…

Disclaimer: I wrote this when I was hungry. If you know me, you’ll know I loooooooooove to eat. My favourite thing about Christmas is the food, hands down, and I just love a substantial meal. Christmas is the time for sooo much good food – roast dinners, desserts, Boxing Day buffets, chocolates and treats. I literally cannot wait (I sound so fat lololol). But, with anything, with the good also…

Christmas is the best time of year for so many reasons. I mean what other time of year can you eat your body weight in roast dinner and chocolates, and THEN get on the Baileys without feeling guilty? Beats me. But, I find it really fascinating that Christmas means different things for everyone. While in my house we chill out in front of the telly, and perhaps see some family,…

  Apart from endless amounts of food and alcohol, there’s one other thing I particularly enjoy about Christmas. Christmas markets. I love a good Christmas market. They get me in a proper Christmassy mood, and over the last few years have become a bit of a tradition for me – me and mum used to go to the one in Sheffield when she came to pick me up from university.…

I know I’m not the only one who gets in their pjs and fluffy socks, makes a cup of tea, grabs a blanket or five, and lights some candles as soon as they get in from work. There’s something so comforting about being all cosy and warm in the run up to Christmas, especially when your room is filled with amazing, warm, festive smells. I’d always seen generic wax melts…
