The Ultimate Time Stealer

Pintrest and Tumblr are notorious for it, especially due their highly addictive scrolling-technique to ensure the websites just never end.In a different way, BBC News is an easy way to spend 45 minutes, as they have a […]

Autumnal Style

What I Wore by helloemelsea Hello all 🙂 I am trying especially hard to keep stylish as the days get darker and the chance of rain seems permanently imminent!

This is Not a Notebook

As a self confessed book-aholic and hoarder of all things, it is quite natural to assume that beautiful stationary items are one of my top 5 weaknesses. Paperchase visits have to be limited to at least bi-monthly occurrences otherwise rent simply would not be paid. However! Even though I have drawers full of notepads that […]

Do you ever feel like you’re not the person you want to be? Or perhaps even the person you used to be? I have been feeling like that recently, and instead of getting too glum, I want to make active steps to being a happier version of me. Every day we make decisions, and every […]
