This week’s competition information is here . Hey I […]Read more "Fast Fiction"
We have been members of the Zoological Society London since the Spring of this year, mainly because we are around an hour and a bit from ZSL Whipsnade and it’s a cracking day out! With your membership you get free entry to both Whipsnade and London, as well as supporting the essential conservation work of […]Read more "A Family Day Out – ZSL Whipsnade"
I can remember watching The Color Purple, vaguely, when I was much much younger. I’m sure I wasn’t supposed to be watching it, and I’m pretty sure it was on post watershed. I do not remember much about watching it then, although watching it again now as an adult much of it seems familiar, particularly […]Read more "The Color Purple – Book Review and Film Review"
Ok so I’ll be honest, out of all the books published over the course of 2016, this is probably the last book I would have chosen to read based on the blurb! Yet another baby-faced, adolescent You Tuber releases a book, this time it’s just a random collection of their follower’s thoughts on love and […]Read more "Book Review and Giveaway – This Modern Love by Will Darbyshire"
August Bank Holiday weekend in Cambridgeshire means it must be Fenland Country Fair. My mum and I have been going to this for years and years, and it’s now a tradition for all the family to go every year. It’s a relatively smallish, ‘proper’ country show. As in their is none of that commercial plastic […]Read more "Little Family Day Out – Fenland Country Fair"

I managed to get myself an interview for a job I really […]Read more "Getting Interview Confident"

I thought you guys might like a little glimpse of a certain person’s first birthday. His actual birthday we went on the train to London to visit the Natural History Museum. Which Daddy Bear and I both love and always have done since childhood. Yes we focused our trip on dinosaurs, but we did come […]Read more "First Birthday Shenanigans!"
So I do not ever normally read young adult fiction, the last time I did I was in my early twenties, I think, when I absorbed Phillip Pullman’s trilogy at lightening speed! Therefore Im not entirely sure why I haven’t really given the genre a second look for such a long time. I have been […]Read more "A Book Review – Ransom Riggs: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children"
I have had a little bit of a girl crush on Tanya Burr for a little while now, she’s so successful, likeable and so darn pretty! I love her You Tube makeup tutorials, I have had a little splurge on her makeup (her eyeshadow palletes are just beautiful), and now the girl has only gone […]Read more "Tanya Bakes – Book Review"
