June: Book Reviews


I know I’ve titled this blog post “June Book Reviews” but really I should call it “JanuaryFebruaryMarchAprilMayJune Book Reviews”. Yes – That does mean I’ve only read 5 books in 5 months. Wow. A book per month. Marian – what on earth is wrong with you?! Out of the 5 books my favourite was Asking For It. I started following…

Adventuring: London


This Easter was the second time I visited the Glorious City of London. And it was just as spectacular as it was three years ago. Much like Ireland, England’s weather is “okay” and can be very unpredictable. So I decided to bring a bit of every type of clothing. In the end, it was that nice dry crispness with enough…

Blog Post comes with Free Cake


*** OYSTERS, CLAMS AND COCKLES *** Or if none of those tickles your taste buds I also bring Cake! I realise that it has been quite a while since I’ve posted on my blog. 2 months, 3 days, 3 hours, 48 minutes and 12 seconds. And that’s 2 months, 2 days, 5 hours too long. I hope the cake makes…

Stacking The Shelves


Over the years, I’ve managed to acquire quite a large “to be read” list.  Right now it is probably nearing 8 stories tall. It’s my tower of magnificent, beautiful, wonderful books. You see I’m planning to build a castle. Yes a castle of books. And then live in it. And I want a dragon too. Outside she will guard my…

The Future Is Now


Over Christmas I started a new Art Journal. I aways have loads of journals on the go from writing diaries to travel scrapbooks. I will admit I have quite an obsession with notebooks and indeed stationary purchasing. I can’t help it okay?! I’m pretty sure it’s a disease. They have meetings for such things – Notebookers Anonymous. They sit around…

December: Book Reviews


Sapient     I must thank Kelsey, the publisher, for sending me this book by Jerry Kaczmarowski. It’s always interesting to read a book without having a notion what on earth it is about. Usually I read blog reviews on new releases and check out stars on goodreads before i even consider buying a book. This can set up a…

Things that when I looked at them they reminded of happy memories or inspired me to be better and work harder. I acquired a lot of these because lets face it I Love a lot of things. In…

All the Colours


I absolutely adore the colours of Autumn. The reds, yellows, oranges, greens. It’s so spectacular and beautiful. That’s one of the many reasons I love Autumn. Winter is coming and it’s finally *socially acceptable* to be excited for Christmas. Although I’ve been listening to festive songs since mid June ( so what? Don’t judge me :L ).  And Autumn is…

My Not-So-Summer


A typical summer in the life of me: Finish school in an exhilarated, exhausted daze of relief looking forward to 3 months of bliss, travel, excitement and freedom (in a Dobby-with-a-sock type way). For the past few years I’ve managed to jam pack my summers with lots of fun things. I’m not someone who likes to lay around at home…

The Blog Awards


The Awards appear to be back. And they will probably continue to circulate in a terrifying infinite loop of doom. As these are my first nominations in over a year I’m childishly excited about them ^_^  It feels great to be thought of when other bloggers have to nominate other blogs. There is a million other blogs in the blogosphere…
