To the daydreamer whose never caught with their eyes closed, because you know that’s not the way to catch a dream – no.

Bullet Journaling for the New Year

I’ve tried before and failed. But not this year – I simply refuse! I need to become a more organised person and I feel like this could be a step in the right direction… I feel like my problem with it in the past was that I have a tendency to let my creativity run away with me a little and I always tried to make every page really pretty and I the perfectionist in me just didn’t allow for that sheer quantity of up-keep! So, for now at least i’m going to keep things simple!
If you have never heard of bullet journaling before and have no clue what I’m rambling about I’ll give a brief explanation below and also link the bullet journaling website here if you would like more in-depth details.
A bullet journal can essentially be whatever you need it to be: a check list, diary, journal, notebook or sketchbook. Personally, mine is predominately a check list.
All you need to start is a notebook and a pen…

Favourite Books of 2017

Hello all and happy New Years Eve! I have really enjoyed writing about my favourite books – I’ve no idea why I haven’t thought to do it sooner! So, without further ado, here are my top 10 favourite books I’ve read over the last 365 days and why! (Excluding plays.) Not all these books were published in 2017 but it was at least my first time reading them through this year

Let's Bake: Gingerbread People!

Gingerbread is one my favourite things to make but for some reason I feel like I’m cheating on Christmas if I make them any other time of the year. So, I always try to make sure I try to make some come December. I made them for my brother as he loves gingerbread but then I forgot to actually give them to him!
And I even used a recipe this time!

Let's Bake: Mocha Muffins

Hello Everyone!
This is my very first baking post so I’m just going to see where this goes!
Now, I love baking but I haven’t had the chance to make anything in quite some time. It was my friends birthday a couple of weeks ago and so I grabbed that excuse with both hands! You should probably know however, that I have a tendency not to use recipes… Which honestly isn’t the best idea but, it usually ends up that way even when I intend to use one!

~ A Letter to September ~

One’s time, like a constellation, Burns bright.
We walk through your Golden Gardens, Once, twice,
Hints of Autumn air consume from great heights.
Together. Against the rain turned to Ice.
Though it yields; there’s still blue skies and starred nights.
Like a habit my reflection blinks back:
Now known, your essence, the song will ne’er lack.

~ A Letter to August ~

You came and went again – it seems I wasn’t looking.
A single moment. I stopped and was hooked.
O’ across the country and to the next –
but there you were not. I would know, I Looked.
Clearing the way for Autumn already?

~ A Letter to July ~

We flew away, towards your summer sun More eager than Dawn we packed suitcases, Upon the foreign terrain, all undone. Exploring these new and unknown …
