    Fill Your Instagram Feed With Vintage Style Inspiration

    There’s nothing quite like rummaging through the rails of a vintage shop and the thrill of finding a real treasure. If only the items could tell you their secrets and memories. We can only imagine who their previous owners might be and the things that they’ve seen. We’re not all blessed with a nearby vintage […]

    The Allure of Vintage Clothing Shopping

    To vintage or not to vintage? That is the question.

 If you’re having trouble picking a side, let me ease your struggles and persuade you to go vintage… There are two types of people: people who like second-hand shopping and those who despise the thought. For some, it’s a magical kind of treasure hunt where […]

    Positively Wonderful: The Importance Of Self-Expression

    Since the theme for this month is memories, I decided that it might be fitting to throw it back to the good old 4th-7th grade (Years 5-8 for UK readers) days and talk about my sense of “fashion” during that time and the importance of self-expression. When I was a wee young one, I was […]

  • Those Who Don’t Believe In Magic Will Never Find It

    Roald Dahl was, without a shadow of a doubt, my favourite author as a child. Come to think of it, he would quite easily make it into my list of favourite authors today. I have fond memories of being terrified by The Witches, listening to the George’s Marvellous Medicine audiobook on long car journeys, and […]

  • Reflecting On The Past: 8 Tips To Improve Your Memory

    Although I’m an advocate of attempting to live in the present moment – rather than fretting about the future or dwelling on the past – I do believe that our memories – both positive and negative – are extremely important. Our memories shape our identity; they are associated with emotions and profound moments of learning. […]

    Recipe of the Month: Best Ever Macaroni Cheese

    Macaroni cheese is one of my favourite dishes. It’s not the healthiest, but it’s a really classic comfort food. There’s nothing like curling up with a bowl of cheesy carby goodness whilst watching a movie or reading a couple of chapters of a book. The best part about mac and cheese is that it is ridiculously easy […]

    Simplify Your Beauty Routine: Body And Nail Care

    Don’t get me wrong, I love playing with beauty products as much as the next person but I’ve never been one to faff around with fake tan, complicated hairstyles or fancy nails. I like to keep things simple, easy and low maintenance – although my boyfriend would probably argue that I still take too long […]

    Super Lazy, Delicious Morning Smoothie

    I wonder how many of us could honestly say that they eat enough fruit. I know I don’t. It’s not that I don’t like fruit, it just doesn’t always occur to me to pick up a piece of fruit when I’m in need of a snack or I’m put off by messiness and preparation time. […]

  • Sensing Something Good: Every Moment is a Memory

    We work in senses. Sight, smell, touch, taste and sound are the sensations that make each moment – and every moment is a memory. The times we remember are created by sensory prompts; whether it’s the smell in the air, the sound ringing in our ears or the colours surrounding us… If like me, your […]

    Career Advice: My Self-Publishing Experience

    So I did it. I finished my first novel. Wow, what a feeling! Breathe… I’ve edited, re-edited, polished it to within an inch of my life, and it’s finally ready to be read by a human being who isn’t my mum. Now comes the tricky bit…   If you love writing and, like me, the […]
