Goodbye 2014 | Recap & Favourites

Well, well. What a year it's been for me. When I started this year I was suffocating from being bullied in college, my anxiety playing up and general 'What am I doing with my life?' breakdowns. The latter two are still part of my life today. But do you know what, I'm feeling pretty damn good. And I think that this blog is a big part of that.

Top 5 Books Of 2014

Compiling the books to feature in this post was actually pretty difficult for me, because I've read and re-read some amazing books this year, and I loved all of them for different reasons. But for this post, I've picked the books that made me feel something when I was reading, or because it's a book that isn't similar to anything else I've ever read. So without further ado, here are my Top 5 Books of 2014!

What I Got For Christmas 2014

Well, well - look at me uploading a post in the afternoon! I was planning on writing up this post as soon as I photographed it earlier but Animal Crossing life got in the way and here I am, typing it up at 4pm. Lateness aside, how was your guys' Christmas?! I had a very lovely three days: I went to a Church service for the first time on Christmas Eve, I ate three servings of roast potatoes on Christmas Day and I spent Boxing Day cooking a mock Christmas dinner with my Dad. I also opened some amazing gifts!  

The Happy List #2

It's been around a month since my last The Happy List post, and quite a few things have happened that have made me very happy, so I thought I'd write up another one! I'm kind of in denial about the fact that it's four days until Christmas, because I'm so ridiculously impatient and it'll drive me insane knowing that it's so close. But I AM very excited. I just can't wait for everyone to open the presents I've bought them!

Nandos, Park Street | The 'Beanie' Burger

Nandos, 49 Park Street, Bristol BS1 5NT | 0117 929 9263 | Sun - Thurs 11:30am - 10:30pm | Fri - Sat 11:30am - 11pm
To fully complete my induction into being a vegetarian, I thought it was about time I introduced myself to a vegetarian burger. And what better place to try out & talk about than Nandos? I have always been a huge lover of Nandos (especially their chips & sweetcorn), but I'd never re-visited since becoming a vegetarian, despite their (albeit small) veggie offerings. I can guess that people wouldn't be all that tempted to go to a chicken restaurant if they're a veggie, but my Dad had never been and wanted to try it out, and I liked the sound of one of their veggie burgers, so yesterday lunchtime we took a trip to the Park Street branch.

Wreck This Journal #4

Hello! I am here today to bring you your monthly subscription of Wreck This Journal inspiration. I actually had two of these pages completed a long time ago (they were contestants for Wreck This Journal #3) but I finally had time to wreck another page to make up this post.

9 Things | iPhone Christmas Wallpapers


Like I mentioned in my 25 Things To Do Before December 25th post, I rather enjoy Christmas-ifying my phone when it's the festive season. My ringtone is currently the Christmas theme from Harry Potter & the Chamber Of Secrets, but I wanted to re-vamp my phone wallpapers and thought I'd share my findings with you.

Currently Reading

Hello everyone! I hope you're all well. Today I thought I'd show you what I'm currently reading. I am one of those readers that flicks between books constantly, purely because I can be in the mood to read a certain genre of book (romance for example) and if my current read doesn't feature it, I'll just pick up another book. I don't actually own any Christmassy books (unless you count The Grinch), so I haven't been reading anything particularly festive, but I thought I'd show you anyway.

Blogs I Love #3

It's time for another dose of blog love to be shared! I love reading blogs as much as I love writing mine, and these three blogs are some of my most loved recently. You know those blogs that you read literally anything they put up? These blogs do that for me.

25 Things To Do Before December 25th

I feel like the older I get, the more the Christmas spirit inside of me fades a little so this year I'm combating growing up/the loss of excitement with this little to-do list. These are all of the things I'd love to do this December to help build the excitement again, especially as my little sister can join in too!
