Over the years I've done a few favourites posts, subject specific and mixed. They seem to have, each time, gone down a treat, so since the end of 2018 has brought me a tonne of new things, and at that, things I love, I wanted to share the things I'm happily bringing into 2019 with… Continue reading My 2018 favourites I’m carrying into the New Year

November in Pictures.

I've been wanting and meaning to throw myself back into this blog for a while now, but life got on top of me a little, so I'm throwing myself back in with a bit of a soft post: November in Pictures.

Valid: Mental Health Awareness and National Coming Out Day

This week has held two very important events directly relevant to my life, and... I never had a chance to speak about them. The truth is, on these days I wasn't feeling too fabulous, so I really had to prioritise my spoons, physically and emotionally, but these were also too important to me to simply… Continue reading Valid: Mental Health Awareness and National Coming Out Day

Cosy cup: Hello Pumpkin Spice (Vegan)

I would say that for many years, I've been the Pumpkin Spiced Latte queen. I was exposed to coffee a lot earlier than most, and adored the taste from day one... so, of course I one day tried this magical autumnal drink and fell in love. At my local Starbucks from about the age of… Continue reading Cosy cup: Hello Pumpkin Spice (Vegan)

Technicolour (Poetic prose by Lauren Curr)

In a world where all looks scare her, eyes meet. There's a flash of technicolour, standing out, in a world usually seen in black and white vision. Illuminated joy seeps through the waves of life; the salt usually blurs even the brightest of stars and crashes on the sandbanks too fast to even gasp for… Continue reading Technicolour (Poetic prose by Lauren Curr)

Blogtober First: A re-introduction to Stories Can Make Us Fly!

For 3 years straight I've done Blogmas, and I loved being able to post every day, but... if you know me, you'll know my season is autumn over winter, any day. So, this year, I'm taking Blogmas on a more suited whirl and choosing to partake in Blogtober, instead! I've also been fairly quiet so… Continue reading Blogtober First: A re-introduction to Stories Can Make Us Fly!
