I had 4 days in Pisa during October 2016, it was a little sunshine break after spending years tugging at the sleeve of friends and loved ones with dreams of sea, sunbathing and espressos. It was also my first ever trip to Italy so I had no idea what to expect. Accommodation Pisa was like dipping […]Read More Tokyo to Los Angeles: Pisa.
Between October 2016 and December 2018 I travelled 5479 miles across the globe, drank wine in 3 different continents, had to use snow-grips to get around, been in the Sistine Chapel, sunbathed on volcanic black sand, seen Mount Fuji with my own two Yorkshire eyes, photographed the sunset from the tops of the Hollywood hills, […]Read More Tokyo to Los Angeles: The last year (or so) in travel.
It has been a long while since a post, I’ve been trying to think about what direction to take the blog in for months and it’s been a rocky journey. I’m still unsure. I have too many interests and too many things I want to talk about, so I tried to really think about what […]Read More Tummy terrors
You are full of hate and loathing and I gotta say, I love it! Once upon a time I had a great love, we were made for one another and I couldn’t bear the thought of a night apart. We spent countless hours together, drinking wine and eating cheese. We were there for each other […]Read More Rory Gilmore: The Incredible Sinking (and swimming) Lorelai
I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was […]Read More The book rut.
I recently finished reading You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day, a book that I had eagerly awaited for months but didn’t get my hands on until fairly recently. Being an English Literature graduate, this book did something that not many do, it inspired me to write. Context, baby! I am a huge […]Read More Buffy, weird females and the internet.
I wanted to write a nice inspiring post for today, full of interesting tidbits and fist-pumping stories of equality, however anxiety has got the best of me tonight so instead I’m going to do a wonderful job of copying and pasting one of my favourite quotes about the portrayal of strong women in television and […]Read More Happy International Women’s Day
Dogs are amazing. As someone who was very much a cat person up until I met a beautiful Patterdale terrier 3 years ago, saying these words tastes strange on the tongue, but the right dog will change your life. I’m not going to write up a sappy, sad story of how my particular dog helped […]Read More Confession of a dog lover.
I didn’t have too much time this year to fully embrace the Halloween spirit so my gingerbread skeletons will have to take a little vacation this year which truly upsets me, baking gingerbread skeletons (or skeles as I like to call them) is one of my favourite Autumnal treats. However, worry not, I have plans […]Read More Kitchen & Geek – Halloween
A quick review: Supernatural Season 6. I am not ashamed to admit that it has taken me a long time to get to this point of Supernatural. It aired originally in the same year that the first episode of the first season graced my eyes for the very first time. After that it took me […]Read More It was alright, but…
