If there's one thing I love more than using my fancy desk accessories and writing in notebooks it's buying more of them. So I thought I'd throw together a little wish list packed with all of my desired stationary bits that all come in at £6 or less. My favourite places to shop for stationary and desk accessories is actually Supermarkets like Tesco or Asda, as well as places like Wilkinsons, Ikea and the classic Paperchase. So all of the bits I've chosen are from these places!
Hello! Today I thought I'd share a ridiculously simple Autumnal DIY. I did this myself a few days ago as I wanted some Autumnal accessories for my fireplace and thought that instead of just showing them off, I'd show you what I used. It really is almost criminal to call this a tutorial because really, you just put both things in a glass and it's finished but I thought some of you might find it inspiring/useful.
I'll be the first person to hold their hand up and say: I judge books by their cover. I know, it's terrible, but I can't really help it. When you're in the book store with only a few minutes to scan the hundreds of books on offer, the only way to choose what to study further is to pick the one that aesthetically attracts you. And there are some awful book covers out there. I can't help but feel that if you've gone through the effort to create a perfect book, why would you cloak it in anything besides a perfect cover? So today I thought I'd share my favourite book covers with you!
Since becoming a vegetarian back in July of this year, I've been having a lot of fun experimenting with different meal options that obviously don't include meat. And whilst I involve the vegetarian substitutes sometimes (such as sausages and stir-fry chicken) I really want to begin eating meals that are completely composed of vegetables. So I took to Pinterest and BBC Goodfood to source some recipes to try out and thought I'd document my findings on my blog. These meals could be for any other veggies out there, or maybe if you like the sound of them you'd consider having a 'No Meat Monday' once a week/month!
I saw this post originally on an amazing blog named Dorkface and thought it was hilarious, so I decided to share with the internet all of the reasons why I'm not cool. Hopefully you will relate, if not then try not to judge me too hard.
A few weeks ago I sent myself out on an Autumnal mission: buy knitwear, scarves and tights. And what did I come back with? None of those things, but I did get a few things that I love! I ventured into Primark and strangely only came out with three things, and then on a trip to Boots I bought myself two things that I had been after for a while. So here they are!
Due to the surprising popularity of my previous Wreck This Journal post, I thought I'd do another! I haven't been wrecking that much because my kitten Luna seems to find the process very entertaining and thinks that me colouring in with a felt tip is an invitation for her to attack either myself or the pen. She also likes stepping in my watercolour paints (although she regrets it afterwards). But here is my progress since last time!
This year was truly the year of the YouTubers, and one of those amongst all of the success is Alfie Deyes from Pointless Blog. I'm not going to give you a biography of him because I'm sure 99% of people reading this know who I'm talking about, so let's just get on to the book!
September was a month of loves for me. I've always considered doing a favourites post before but then upon taking the photos I have try and remember what I've actually been enjoying, which to me is a sign that I haven't been enjoying the things that much. However this month I've loved so many things. The colder weather, my new kitten Luna and my Wreck This Journal are a few unphotographed but much loved things that I've been obsessed with, but here are a few photographed extras!
Welcome to another monthly goals post! I am writing this whilst wearing mis-matching pyjamas and attempting to wrestle my new kitten off of my keyboard. I am also dreaming of a hot chocolate with marshmallows and a roaring fire (plus a few other autumn clichés). But amidst these dreams I have been tallying up my progress with my September Goals and penning my October ones, so without further ado...
