DEAR DIARY :: CONFESSIONS OF A 13 YEAR OLD

On Tuesday, the lovely Becky of Becky Bedbug blogged about her 25 diaries in this post: ‘My Diaries 1998-2003’.  Reading the snippets had me in stitches, I related to so much of what she said. So, climbing up to the top of the wardrobe (on a rickety chair), I found the familiar polka dot box…covered in dust and hiding […] Read more…

VERONICA FALLS :: DEAF INSTITUTE, MANCHESTER

 Saturday was my Christmas. Sounds strange, I know. By that I mean, the day had arrived when I could finally cash in my Christmas present from my good friend, Katie. 2 tickets to see the London indie scamps, Veronica Falls at Manchester’s Deaf Institute.

BERLIN // PICTOPLASMA

Berlin – Pictoplasma During the Easter holidays, I was lucky enough to visit the city of Berlin. I’d been once before, during one snowy December in 2009, but had only sampled the tourist sights… the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, DDR Museum.

PLANNING A BABY SHOWER

 Planning a Baby Shower I’m so fortunate to be gifted the task of organising a baby shower for my good friend, Jenna.

Playlist 2.0 :: March Earworms

Yes, yes, it’s April and I still haven’t kept you in the loop with my March earworms! Tsk tsk! So, today’s playlist is inspired by *drum roll please* …motivation! At times, I’ve lacked motivation and on  rare wondrous moments, I’ve been oozing with it. On each of these occassions, there’s been a playlist to suit. […] Read more…

It’s Your Letter… in Grazia!

Way back in November, I was fortunate enough to win a year’s subscription to Grazia. Yay me! Now, Grazia isn’t a magazine I’d normally choose to read, however it’s better than a poke in the eye and before I knew it, I actually looked forward to the glossy dropping through the letter box.   Over […] Read more…
