Helene Fermont, ‘His Guilty Secret’ (review)

I am lucky enough to be part of Hélene Fermont's Blog tour for her new book, His Guilty Secret, which will be out on the 27th November. Being sent His Guilty Secret last month was such a pleasure as I'd never before come across the author and I wouldn't say it's the kind of genre… Continue reading Helene Fermont, ‘His Guilty Secret’ (review)

The cosy chronicles

How do you stay cosy and keep your emotions warm when it's cold outside?   Whilst at work last week, I did my 'focus' on uplifting Christmas products and those with neroli (an ingredient proven to stimulate serotonin) and my good friend Hannah showered me with a fact I did not know and had never… Continue reading The cosy chronicles

 My top reads in summer 2017- books to read by the fireside.

As a huge literary fan, of course I've been reading to my heart's content over the summer (with my health and long hours at work limiting me a little, but even so).

Surrounded by people But loneliness prevails I don't want to know what the future entails. I don't want to know The future. The future Is… Continue reading Lost – A Poem by Lauren Curr

I've even been to her mum and sister's. But visiting her grave over a year ago now is something I found… Continue reading 200 years on: What Austen means to me

Studyblr and bullet journaling

A few days ago, I made the decision to create a 'studyblr'/'studygram' blog on the social media site 'Instagram'. I did this as my relationship with studying, I feel, is faltering. My education has been severely hindered this year due to ill-health, and that upset me as I am extremely passionate about my subjects. Anyway,… Continue reading Studyblr and bullet journaling

Blogmas: Day 16. Christmas Wishes.

In all honesty, I meant to post this two days ago. Of course you know that, because blogmas is a daily and I haven't posted since day 13. Oops? I do apologise, but i've had a lot of school work to do. The prompt for a few days ago 'what are you asking Santa for?',… Continue reading Blogmas: Day 16. Christmas Wishes.

National Poetry Day!

Happy National Poetry day! Today is a day that I hold dearly in my heart, as it celebrates my one true love. Many people do not appreciate the power and the beauty of written word, but I think there is nothing more important; For enjoyment; To have your voice; To hear the voice of others.… Continue reading National Poetry Day!
