10 Things Learnt in my LTR

As I mentioned in my last journal post – my long term relationship sadly came to an end towards the end of last year. Whilst I’m in a really good place now, I’ve had plenty of months to reflect and wanted to share the lessons I learnt. It’s really important to have your own life….

23 Lessons

Today I turn the grand age of 23, and what better way to celebrate than sharing 23 lessons learnt over the years… 1. Time is something we never have enough of, always make the most of every day 2. There’s not many moods that can’t be improved by Friends re-runs 3. Everyone you meet will…

See Ya Summer

Summer’s a goner. I, for one, am pretty pleased to hear this. Whilst the summer sun definitely perks up a bad day, the cool Autumn breeze is my absolute favourite. Crisp weather, walks wrapped up in jumpers, and cosy evenings on the sofa with hot mugs of tea. Yes please, all of the above. However,…

25 Things #2

Back in the day, ’50 Facts About Me’ posts did the rounds and unable to think of fifty things about myself, I wrote 25 things here. However, that was two years ago and since then a few more things have happened! As there’s been an abundance of beauty related posts this summer, I thought this…

Killing with Kindness

We’ve had a bit of a stressful time of late. A difficult renting situation has seen us out of pocket and thoroughly on the losing end. As time has dragged on and we’ve finally got the end of this blasted agreement in sight, I’ve been reflecting on the phrase ‘Kill them with kindness’. If I…

Note Nutty

If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of, it’s creative journals. Nothing get the creative juices flowing better than a unique notebook with exciting pages. Perhaps that’s just the organisation freak within me, but hopefully you’ll know what I mean! Here’s some great ones I’ve found on the net recently… A Five Year Memory…

Slices

Blogging is a wonderful thing. Seeing the way that people put everything into their own little slice of the internet is a constant source of inspiration. What better way to inspire you today, than share four of my favourite reads with you… Cider with Rosie I discovered Rosie’s blog a while ago, and have since…

Siblings and Secondary School

Source It’s official. I’m old. Okay, I know that 22 is hardly the time to start hitting the comfy armchairs for mid-conversation naps and an over acceptable interest in birds but something has happened of late that has made me feel old. My little brother is heading to secondary school. A twelve and fifteen year age…

Dublin Day 4

On our last day we had to check out at 12, so we made the most of our cosy bed and room with a nice long lie in! We then had nine hours to kill before our flight so we spent a lot of our day bobbing in and out of the various cafes near…

Dublin Day 3

On our third day we’d planned to go to the Guinness Storehouse, but decided to go for a fairly long walk up to it again to soak in some more of Dublin’s streets. Luckily we decided to go down a cobbled street and came across a place called Queen of Tarts, a place I’d spotted…
