Well, that’s summer out of the way – who’s ready for Autumn? The leaves here in Glasgow are already changing colours, providing an absolute rainbow of scenery on my daily commute, and the vivid red berries and rosehips that signal the changing of the seasons are already on full display. I even saw a fox whilst… Continue reading Hello Autumn, Dear Old Friend 🍂
A few of the blogs I follow have been doing these lists lately, so I thought I'd share my own lil' list of loves. We all have them though, those things that we simply can’t be without, and if we’re without them all metaphorical hell breaks loose, and then some. Have you ever seen me… Continue reading Creature Comforts: The things I can’t live without
Oh hi guys, notice anything different about the blog? I'm making a few aesthetic changes around the place - what do you think? Anyway, remember back in this post when I discussed how to be a morning person? Yeah, that’s right – I am one of those annoyingly chirpy people who are up early in the… Continue reading My morning routine
Hello readers! TGIF, am I right? Anyhoo, the purpose of this post is basically to say I’m going to be taking a wee hiatus from the blog.

Although I typically have a rather strong constitution, because my immune system is currently compromised due to my asthma and hayfever (thanks a lot summer!),… Continue reading Keeping your spirits up, when your body is down
My closest friends know that summer-me is grumpy-me: I can’t tolerate the heat, I withdraw into myself, and grow grumpy and irritable as well as starting to doubt not only myself, but everything around me. However, the moment it rains my mood brightens almost instantly. Come winter I have energy to spare, and a bright… Continue reading What is Summertime SADness?
Summer has struck Glasgow, so it’s time for the dresses to come out of hibernation, the tights to be packed away, and my opalescent legs to reflect the sunlight, blinding passer-by’s with the glare. However, as wonderful as that sounds it also means the one summer curse we don’t like talking about: Chaffing. Any person… Continue reading One Quick Trick to Prevent Chaffing
I’m finally feeling better which means it’s time to get back into my usual routine, without the fatigue, sneezing, sniffling, and tummy pains I’ve been living with for the past week! As a creature of habit and routine, I’m glad to be back to full health, as even if sometimes my life may seem chaotic,… Continue reading Are You a Morning Person?
Ben and I never had a first date. Well, not technically. We met as friends after having spent a couple of weeks chatting via Reddit every day, and met up for a pint and pizza after my plans for the day had fallen through. We both wanted to get out of our respective flats and… Continue reading 50 Great Dates: ideas and inspiration for your next date!
