As you may have guessed from the silence that has fallen around these parts; things have all been a bit crazy the past few months. When it got to late September, I became increasingly aware that if I didn’t take some leave from work I would being burning out in quite a spectacular way. So,… Continue reading A Staycation in London
24 things I’d tell my 14-year-old self. On the 6th March, I turned 24. Which is a wild age to type, as I still feel about 19. 24 makes me feel very much like I’m cosily in my 20s and, somehow, ten years on from my early teens. Leave your eyebrows alone. Seriously. Step away… Continue reading 24.

Getting soaked on the Champs Elysees and having to emergency buy an umbrella from Marks & Spencer (and sneakily use the Dyson hairdryer in Sephora). Unexpectedly finding parks and the Eiffel Tower.

So it’s probably no surprise that I love Refinery 29’s Money Diaries series (US series here, UK example here). This is literally a week… Continue reading The Sunday Spend #1
This past weekend, I went to see Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t really excited about seeing it. I felt like it was potentially a bit of a cash-grab, especially after being pretty unwhelmed by reading Cursed Child. However, a Potter-mad housemate and Eddie Redmayne’s face got me into my local cinema.… Continue reading Magic, Nostalgia & Fantastic Beasts
