What I’ve Discovered Recently

Motivational quote print

I’ve had a lot of time to think recently. Thinking used to be something I largely avoided. It came close to terrifying me as much as stepping outside did. At one point in time thinking used to mean simply dwelling. Dwelling on all the bad things of the past, the maybes, the what could have […]

The Picture Of Dorian Gray By Oscar Wilde

Penguin Books classics series

Even though I really have not read in a long time, I still find myself knowing a pretty large amount about classic books (though if I was ever to go on Mastermind they would not be my specialist subject) and am often surprised when people have not heard of something; this book is one of […]

Giving To My #GoodEgg This Easter

Good eggs for cooking are pretty easy to find thanks to the way they are selected and gathered for selling but find the good egg amongst people can be quite a challenge. On twitter all those trolls and spam bots are profile pictureless eggs and are clearly the bad eggs in society. The bad eggs […]

My Goals For 2017

For me at least 2017 is the year of achievable goals and being able to feel proud at the end of them. Here are some things I’m planning to gove my all during the year ahead.

I Knew Blogmas Would Not Work Out

If I won the lottery (tag)

So I am never going to win the lottery. Why? I have better things to spend a pound or two on each week than clinging on to some one-in-however-million chance of pocketing a decent amount of money. But I, like many, dream about how I would spend all that cash. I looked to see if […]

Taking Those Small Steps

No matter what our aims and plans are in life we all generally have to take small steps to get there. Whether it be getting a dream job, a house to spend our lives in or finding the perfect person to have a relationship with. I decided this year that having a big plan or […]

Product Empties: December 2015

Another month ending means it’s time for another list of empties and my thoughts on them. With being away from most of my things for the last part of December the amount of empties I used up slowed but the list is still quite incredibly long. Sleeptherapy Pillow Mist I mentioned a couple of months […]

It’s Christmas Time

Every year I’ve been told and reminded how a good Christmas is about who we spend it with and not what we get given. There are a few exceptions, such as plane tickets for the man to see his aging mother for the first time in ten years, but many of them are about the […]

A Change in Mood

I’ve gone from hating the idea of Christmas to being fairly excited in the space of 24 hours. Alright fairly excited by my standards is basically just not being completely opposed to something but that is actually a pretty rare thing so it seems like a big deal to me. For the first time in […]
