The glitz, glamour, and grumpy grinches of December make the last month of the year fly by. We then face the crash landing of the new year. Returning to work, resolutions that make us break habits we've had for so long, leading to withdrawals, fears, and doubts. Every single December, my news feed is flooded with… Continue reading Why Do We Rush January?
Hey everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend? I have to say, as much as I love writing, it's been super nice having a couple of days to do something else for a change after completing the 31 Days of Blogging Challenge over January! I've spent the weekend doing a bit of organisation… Continue reading Denmark and Sweden Photos!
Wow. This is it! The final day of the 31 Days of Blogging Challenge has approached us and SOMEHOW I managed to keep to it! Several times I felt like I wanted to give up but when I think about how well it's gone I'm so happy I didn't. As you can see, I completely… Continue reading January Review: 31/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
When I was 11, I had my first holiday romance. It was beyond cheesy, but for two weeks we were the best of friends. We would hold hands around the resort and would push each other in the pool. In the evening, we played snooker and sipped on fruit juice mocktails. Then, at the end… Continue reading You’re Not Alone: 30/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
I have a box. Both virtual and hidden somewhere in my room. The box is filled with old pieces of paper, notebooks, and scrap clippings from magazines. Each bit of paper has something written on it, usually an idea for a story or a poem. Sometimes it is a piece of work I plan to… Continue reading Reading Forgotten Words: 29/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
Flash fiction competitions are everywhere. I see people posting about them on Twitter and many magazines offer the chance to tell a story in a set number of words. Sometimes flash fiction can be 2000 words and sometimes it can be 200, I've even seen ones as little as 10 words! I often think that… Continue reading Flash Fiction: 28/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
Dreamgirls tells the tale of 3 black women, powerfully-voiced Effie, Gorgeous Deena, and the youngest, sassy little Lorrell, all desperate to break into the music business during the 1960's. The story is very similar to the that of Diana Ross and The Supremes. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, Dreamgirls began life as a Broadway musical… Continue reading Dreamgirls West End Review: 27/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
I was one of those girls. With a scrapbook of big white weddings, huge homes with miles of land, baby pictures surrounded by some of my favourite names. I would start dating a guy and it was almost like a countdown of how long I could last before asking them about their opinions on getting… Continue reading What Does My Future Hold?: 26/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

The past few days at the gym haven't been very successful. My shoes were pinching at the toes and rubbing at my heel. After 10 minutes on the crosstrainer, my feet couldn't take it anymore and I had to skip the cardio to give myself a break. My trainers were just cheap things I had… Continue reading Girls Get Pink Shoes: 24/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
