I guess 2017 wasn't all bad

When I look back at my year as a whole, I tend to think of 2017 as a really bad time. Part of this is because I was struggling with depression for quite a large portion of it and so even when I was doing fun things, I still had this big black cloud looming over me.

How setting sprays helped get my makeup game back on track

There’s no better feeling than trying a new makeup item that makes you wonder how you could possibly have been managing day-to-day without it. I’ve had this experience a lot over the last year because I’ve been gradually updating my makeup bag since graduating university.

5 things I'm already looking forward to in 2018

In some ways it’s hard to believe 2017 is nearly over and in other ways 2017 feels like it has dragged out for much longer than 12 months.

Festive London photo diary

As you can probably guess from the title of this post, I spent the last weekend in London having a jolly old Christmas time.

Call Me By Your Name and my first solo cinema trip

Halloween decorations on a budget

It’s officially October which means it’s officially nearly Halloween! Halloween is probably my favourite time of the year.

Have I mentioned how much I love cats? ft Catpawcino in Newcastle

I actually had a completely different post planned this week all about autumn and I had it all written out and ready and then… I forgot to take the photos. So the seasonal content I mentioned in my Blogging Goals post will have to wait until next week…

10 books to curl up with on a rainy day
