My 20-Inch Haircut for the Little Princess Trust! 🎉

For years, I've had crazily long hair. I had my hair cut a few years ago and it was very short - the shortest it's ever been (except when I was a baby, duh) - and I hated it! I have a long face, so very short hair looked a bit stupid. So for the next few years, I just...

Cinema Snippets: Early Man & The Mercy

It's time for another collection of Cinema Snippets, my snippet-length reviews of recent cinema releases! After this post I've finally caught up with all the films I've seen over the past couple of weeks, so I can go back to writing full posts again. Phew! This time,...

Cinema Snippets: I, Tonya & Lady Bird

I've seen so many films recently that I'm not keeping up with writing individual reviews for them all! So, similar to my snippet reviews of books I did a while ago, I'm going to write Cinema Snippets. I'll include a couple of films in one post and give my brief...

Satellite by Nick Lake – Book Review

In case you don’t know (and can’t tell from my blog’s branding), I'm a massive fan of space. Space-themed books like The Martian by Andy Weir are my favourites, and I'm starting to gather a small collection of them on my shelf. So, when I went to YALC last year and...

Books I Had for Christmas 🎅🏻

What did you ask Santa for this year? Each year, my mum, uh... I mean, Santa, asks my sister and I for a list of things we'd like for Christmas. Mine almost always ends up being a list of primarily books with a few other things mixed in. My mum's great at picking...

2017 Wrap-Up & 2018 Goals

When New Year's Eve comes, there's one thing you can always guarantee. You'll scroll through Facebook and it's filled with people reflecting in their 2017 and promising to themselves, once again, that the next year will be better. There are a number of cliches...

My NetGalley TBR | December 2017

If you're a book blogger, you're probably familiar with NetGalley. If you're not, I'll quickly explain what it is: it's basically an online library for ARCs, or Advanced Reader Copies, of books soon to be released. The general rule is that if you request a book and...

Editing Emma by Chloe Seager – Book Review

Editing Emma by Chloe Seager was another book that I spotted at YALC in July. I was intrigued by the blurb - especially by the fact that it's about a blogger. As a blogger, it's pretty cool to see that there's a book written all about a girl and her blog! Here's what...

Artemis by Andy Weir – Book Review

In case you don't know, The Martian by Andy Weir is one of my favourite books of all time. When I found out that the author was releasing a second book called Artemis, this time set on the moon, I was EXCITED. More space nerdiness to add to my bookshelf! I had...

Moonrise by Sarah Crossan – Book Review

Okay, yet again, I have to apologise for a month-long absence. SORRY! It's felt like a slog to get through anything at the moment - I think a lot of people get like this when winter comes and Christmas is around the corner. I just want Christmas now! (Oh, while I'm...

The Creakers by Tom Fletcher – Book Review

Remember how I took part in a Halloween Readathon last month? Yeah, well... I didn't do very well. To be honest, I didn't have very high hopes for myself anyway. I'm so rubbish at reading things within a specific time frame! However, I did manage to read two books...

Warner Bros Studio Tour | Photo Diary

Recently, my sister Emily and I went on an early birthday trip to London. We had a whole Harry Potter weekend planned: day 1 was the Warner Bros Studio Tour in Leavesden, and day 2 was a visit to the Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition at the British Library....

Quick & Easy French Toast – Recipe

Since moving into our own house, my sister Emily and I have become a lot more interested in cooking. I must admit, I'll still not a fan; I definitely wouldn't class cooking as a hobby. But when I don't have my mum cooking for me, if I don't make an effort to make...

Scythe by Neal Shusterman – Book Review

If you don’t know by now, Neal Shusterman is high on my auto-buy authors list. I love his intriguing synopses, crazily imaginative but scarily realistic storylines, and complex characters. One of my favourite books (not just by Neal Shusterman, but of all time) is...
