15 Favourite Childhood Movies – #Blogtober17 Day 13

As a 90’s child, there were so many fantastic films I grew up with. Films that will never grow old, and some that are still shown around Christmas time. It was the good old days of VHS tapes, and being able to easily fast forward through bits you didn’t like, and rewind if you missed

10 Things I love – #Blogtober17 Day 12

Today’s #Blogtober17 prompt is love, and I’ve spent most of the day trying to figure out what to write. I am not a gushy person when it comes to love…I’m not going to write a whole post about friends and family and how much they mean to me etc. That just goes without saying. Instead,

In 5 Years Time – #Blogtober17 Day 7

5 years ago I’d just finished university. I had a degree I was pretty proud of, and so many career plans and aspirations. It was a pretty exciting time in my life, but also pretty damn terrifying – leaving education to finally enter the ‘real world’ and try to make something of myself! I started

My Favourite Flowers – #Blogtober17 Day 6

I love flowers. I love the life and colour they bring to the room. I love receiving them (although that doesn’t happen very often anymore!) and I love treating myself to them every now and then. The one thing I don’t love is how bad I am at keeping them alive! When I saw that
