So after almost a year since reading the first two parts of 1Q84, which I thoroughly enjoyed (see my Goodreads review for what I actually thought), I thought I would go back to Murakami and finally finish the series as I was absolutely pumped to see the narrative unravel and reveal the ending. Unfortunately, the … Continue reading My final thoughts on 1Q84.
Last week the housemates and I went to Tate Modern to see the Dora Maar photography and painting exhibition, this was mainly for one of my housemates who is doing a photography course but I found the pieces super interesting, so I thought I would write a little post on some of my favourite photos … Continue reading A trip to the exhibition for Dora Maar.
I have been hesitant to try out a kindle E-reader for a long time. I used to bash them hard because I love physical books and the way that they look on shelves and such, there is something very therapeutic about just flicking through pages. I also worried that purchasing a kindle and buying e-books … Continue reading My feelings about Kindle E-readers.
Here comes another mood board. I'm really really enjoying them at the mo. This one is much more topical than the last, but that is very fitting for our boy Atticus Finch. He was without a doubt my favourite character from Harper Lee's 'To Kill A Mockingbird', a close second being Jean-Louise (Scout). I loved … Continue reading Character Mood board: Atticus Finch

Which is why it's so important that every time I get into them I recognise what's going wrong, what I can do to make them more bearable and less … Continue reading Little changes in my life that make a big difference.

Part I Women in my life.SO, first of all, my two best friends (Hope, photo 1 and … Continue reading Happy International Women’s Day!!

I am absolutely in love with graphic novels at the moment, especially this graphic diary. I read 'Carnet De Voyage' a little bit out of chronology as I haven't yet read 'Blankets' and I had never seen any other work by Craig Thompson prior to this travel diaries. I think I enjoy auto-biographical graphic novels … Continue reading Graphic diary: Carnet De Voyage // Craig Thompson & my love for the non-fiction.
Its the new year and I feel that I often realise that I've been stuck to the same things and same routine I have blindly followed for the last month or so. To avoid this I've actively gone looking for new things to add into my life that shake things up a little bit. Favourite … Continue reading Bits that you should check out // Pt. 2
