Into The Shallows {A Short Story} – Part Two

I paddle as hard as I can for the shore, my muscles screaming in response but to no avail. All I can think is I need to get to Louis as quick as possible. Within seconds I’m in the shallows. I leap off my board, pulling the leash from my ankle and letting my board drift in the surf. Louis is...

Into The Shallows {A Short Story} – Part One

Hi friends. So lately, I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost my writing mojo, like all my creativity has left my body – or at the very least, my brain. And it frustrates me. Yes, I write for a living, but that’s for clients so there’s no real creativity to it. Not the kind...

Welcome to The Bookery

If you’ve frequented this little space for a while, it’ll come as no surprise to learn that 2017 was a rough year for me. But, with the start of a new year, comes fresh perspective.┬áThere are weeks, even months, in the last year, where I haven’t written any posts. Not because I...

My Word Of The Year: 2018

Happy New Year’s Eve loves! I can’t believe 2017 has come to an end already, but actually, I’m really glad it is. Back in January, I set my goals for this year – and I’m not going to lie, I’ve failed at pretty much all of them. These were my goals for 2017:...

I know, I know. It’s literally been months since I did one of these. But it’s back – and I’m not going to lie, it feels good! This week has been full of bubbles, doctors visits, snow, weird art and getting Christmassy! Let’s dive in shall we? ...

Top 10 Winter Films

How is it that in all the years I’ve been blogging, I’ve never done a list of winter/Christmas films?! Well, seen as it’s now November and we are officially in Love Actually territory, I figured now would be the perfect time! Just as a caveat – yes, most of these are...

Lest We Forget

At 11am this morning, like so many of you, I will be standing in front of a war memorial, a poppy pinned to my chest. And, as it does every year, my heart will break and tears will fall. For those of you who don’t know, I am a military child. My darling Papa is a (now retired) Royal Air Force...

Team GB – Part Two

Hello friend! How was your week! I’m back with week 2 of my trip home – a little later than promised as my internet went out – but better late than never! This week I was more than a little bit of a history nerd – so prepare yourself for photo overload! ...

Team GB – Part One

Happy Sunday friend! Last week, I promised you a run-down of my recent trip home. Well, here it is. Well Part One at least. If you’ve been keeping up with my Insta-stories, you’ll know that I recently went home for a month to see family. Yes, by the time I got home, I had been...

The Weekly Edit #2

Hello love! We’ve got a fair bit to catch up on as I missed out on doing this last weekend. Not for any particularly exciting reason but that does mean you get a bumper double edition! There have been vodka margaritas, a new bedtime routine, baking, books and a new addition to the...

What’s in my bag

Hey lovely. It’ll come as no surprise to you that I love it when other people post these, either on their blog, Insta or YouTube and it occurred to me that I’ve never done one. And seen as I bought myself a new bag last weekend, and I’m loving it, I thought I’d share mine...

The Weekly Edit #1

So it won’t come as any great shock to know that I feel like I’ve lost my blogging mojo lately. And by lately I mean the last few months. I’ve also taken a step back from Instagram and not posted as much – which has been great for my anxiety and overall mental health....
