How to de-clutter when you have hoarding tendencies.

When a new year rolls around everybody tends to sign up for gym memberships, aims to drink more water and tries to de-clutter their homes. I’m the first to admit I am a little bit of a hoarder, I tend to hold on to the pointless crap that I don’t really need. It wasn’t until it came to packing to move out last year I decided it was time to have a big clear out and I got rid of all my clutter ready to start afresh. Even after we moved in and it became clear we didn’t have the most…

What I’ve Read Recently

It’s been a while since I last featured any books on here, and seeing as I’ve just completed my Goodreads 2016 reading challenge, I thought I’d share some of the books I’ve enjoyed recently. You’re going to see quite a trend when it comes to my reading tastes it is very much based on the young adult fiction section of Waterstones,  IF I WAS YOUR GIRL This wasn’t a book I’d ever really heard of before, however, I was lucky enough to win a copy via Maximumpop via one of their many book giveaways they host. As soon as the book arrived I…

The Art Of Being Normal

I’m always trying to get into the habit of reading more often and spending less time on my phone, but I must admit after a long day at work, coming home and cooking tea then going to the gym I tend to be too tired to keep my eyes open. However over the past month or so I’ve been working a little further away from home, which is giving me about 3 hours of commuting time to finally catch up on some reading. I’d initially started this in March and intended to get it finished as part of The Girl Gang…

Review: The Book of Lost Things

One of my aims for my blog in 2016 is to make it more personal and more about me. Yes theres the side of me that loves make up and clothes and that will always be a big part of my personality. But deep down I’m also a huge ‘nerd’ who adores books, art, cheesy emo music and so much more. So today I thought i’d start introducing some book reviews onto my blog. I’m that person loves buying books but doesn’t always have the time to read as many of them as i’d like. But I am trying to…

I did consider doing a ‘What I Got For Christmas’ post, however my bedroom is currently full of cardboard boxes and i’ve packed a lot of my bits and bobs away as I’m moving next…

Images nabbed from Rhi As I mentioned in my last post, i’ve recently attended a few blogger events recently that have re-kindled my love for blogging.

I’d attended a clothes swap back in the summer which I really enjoyed. So as soon as I heard there was a one with books I just had to get…

Since graduating from my Photography degree in the summer i’ve been struggling a lot with feeling uninspired and quite honestly, have been feeling quite down in the dumps. For as long as I remember I’ve loved photography and my whole life revolved around it. I was always coming up with new ideas, having photoshoots on a weekly basis, until I went to University. Doing a degree in photography has sadly ruined it for me, being forced for three years to make work that I really wasn’t that excited about has truly knocked my confidence.  I can’t remember the last time Ive…
