If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly looking for ways to up your daily productivity. For me, one of the main things in setting myself up for a productive day…
Back in December, I challenged myself to write at least 1000 words every single day in the run up to my blog (re)launch. I thought it would be a good…
It’s that time again: we’ve just ushered in the new year, so everyone and their uncle is sharing their New Year’s resolutions. But not me, no – not this year.…
Well, it has been a minute and a half, hasn’t it? When I first decided to take a break from blogging, I never in a million years expected to be gone for almost two years. But time flies by so fast and before you know it, more than twelve months have passed and we’ve said goodbye to an entire decade. Mind-blowing, if you think about it. But let’s not dwell on that too much. I’m here today to let you know that I am now officially back, and to tell you all about what I plan to do with this little blog of mine.
"It all started that night in the woods.
Cass Anderson didn't stop to help the woman in the car, and now she's dead.
Ever since, silent calls have been plaguing Cass and she's sure someone is watching her.
Consumed by guilt, she's also starting to forget things. Whether she took her pills, what her house alarm code is, and if the knife in the kitchen really had blood on it.
If you can't trust yourself, who can you trust?"
January 1st, 2017. The first time I ever hit 'publish' on a blog post. If I'm being completely honest, I never thought I'd last this long. Going into this, I had no idea whether I would like blogging or not. Turns out I bloody love it! Shouldn't have come as such a surprise, though, as I've loved writing ever since I was little (and I mean really little). I feel like I've changed quite a lot over the past year, and I thought this would be the perfect time to sit down and reflect.
I'm back with part two of our Croatian adventures! The boyfriend and I went on an eight-day holiday to Zagreb back in September. I've decided to write two blog posts about it, because too much stuff happened to cram into one post. If you haven't read the first part yet, you can do that here.
Exactly two months and one day ago now (I know, I'm the worst), the boyfriend and I went on an eight-day holiday to Zagreb, Croatia. Since it was September and Autumn was already well on its way, we didn't have the best weather (read: we had rain 90% of the time), but we tried to make the most of it and Zagreb really is a very beautiful city - even under a grey sky. We also somehow took about a gazillion pictures, which I managed to cut down for the purpose of these blog posts (don't worry). And yes, I said blog posts. If you hadn't figured it out from the title, this will be a two-parter. I thought cramming eight days into one post would be a bit much, so here we are: part one of Discovering Zagreb is finally up.
This year for Halloween I joined Imogen's #Hallowreadathon for the very first time. I didn't really know what to expect, except that it wouldn't be easy. This year, Imogen challenged us to read two books in two days; at least one with a ghost in it, and one with red on the cover. For this reason, I went on a hunt for books that would fit these requirements and ended up with a list full of ghost stories - at least one of which fortunately had a cover that consisted almost entirely of red. Win! Speaking of winning, I also won Imogen's Hallowreadathon Preparation Box giveaway, which will contain two books (meeting the requirements of this year's #Hallowreadathon) and some treats. Unfortunately, the box didn't arrive in time for the challenge, but I'm sure I'll still enjoy reading them later on this month (and I will 100% enjoy eating those treats, too!). Now, without further ado, I present to you: the two books I read for this year's #Hallowreadathon.
It's been a while since I last baked so I thought it was time to have another go at it. Since we're close to Halloween (only a few more days now!) I thought it would be fun to make some scary baked goodies. I put on my themed baking hat and pulled out my favourite recipe book for baking: Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr. I had a lot of fun making (and eating) these, and I'm sure you will too. Enjoy!
