Gin-gle all the way

If you'll pardon the pun...

Handmade Foraged Christmas Wreath

If you know me at all you'll know that I bloody love Christmas!! As soon as I've had my summer holiday I'm ready and waiting (impatiently) for the festive season.

Franco Manca comes to Bristol

When I moved back to Bristol from London I was absolutely gutted that I wouldn't be able to indulge in my regular Franco Manca fixes. So when my flatmate tagged me in Bristol Post's Facebook post about them opening a restaurant here I could barely contain my excitement.

Trick or Treat

You'll know by now I love ANY excuse for a party. Halloween is absolutely no exception. What better time than when in a spooky house in the middle of nowhere for the weekend.

Sleep like a baby

With the changing seasons, does anyone else feel like their sleeping pattern and quality changes too? It's particularly the summer to autumn transition I find difficult (and I am miserable without enough sleep!)

Bloggers Party in a Barn ft. Talking Tables

So everyone always tells you 'don't meet up with people you met on the internet'. Not only did I meet up with them, I went on a bloomin' holiday with them and, spoiler alert, I had the best time!

Slovenia: Photo Diary

Oh Slovenia, you stunning little gem of a place! How I'd love to be back there right now, cycling in the sunshine. Slovenia was one of the loveliest, cleanest, most beautiful places I've ever been, so I thought I'd share a few snaps from my time there. It's pretty light on detail as that's all to come in my upcoming Travel Guide.

Room Tour ft. Rooi

Taaaa daaaa! New bedroom yay!

Move over Beer, I'm all about Prosecco Pong

Guys. Prosecco Pong. I almost just don't know if I need to say any more! LOOK AT IT!

Life Update

'ello strangers!!

Glastonbury Festival: Photo Diary

This time last week... I was waking up on my deflating blow up bed, covered in glitter, listening to the rain patter down on the tent, munching on a chocolate belvita. Oh to be back there now...

My Minimalist Make Up Bag

If you read my last post you'll know that I want to try and become a lot more minimalist over the next year and beyond.


Today is my birthday! In case you hadn't guessed I am 24 years old... wow... This little old life is starting to go quickly, even this year so far I barely feel I've blinked and we're in May.

Car and Tyre Maintenence Lessons Learned

Having recently moved back to Somerset from London, getting myself a car was top of my to do list! There's no tube round here and the buses are fine but don't give you all that much freedom. I wanted to be able to get up and go wherever and whenever. So I bought myself a little second hand car.

Why You MUST Vote

You know they said the EU referendum would be the most important vote in our lifetime? Turns out it'll be this one, this general election is just over 1 months time. The one where the decisions made by whoever 'wins' will be final and irreversible.

Bullet Journal Flip Through and Updates

I am so into my bullet journal right now. I'm using it for absolutely everything, I keep it on my bedside table, refer to it almost daily, fill out my trackers and plan ahead.

C'est La Vie: DIY Tee

A couple of weeks ago I saw someone Instagram a stripey tee with red embroidered lettering and I just thought it was the cutest thing ever. If you were to ever come shopping with me you'd know that I am drawn to everything with stripes so obviously I looked for it and went to buy it. It turned out to be a Maison Labiche tee (I featured it in my Spring Style Lust List) which is £55 and I was like hmmmmmm no (Whistles also do/did a similar tee but that's just as expensive). So I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own! And you can too, if you want.

The London Insta-walk: Photo Diary

Last Friday myself and Gwennan (Twenty Something Meltdown) embarked on a little road trip to London to meet with Sarirah (Pretty Not Included) and Mel (Melberryy) for an Insta-walk. A missed turning, a wee bit of traffic, a sausage roll, and a good old gossip later we arrived in London ready to photograph the day away.

Spring Lust List

I am so excited that we're finally getting a glimpse of Spring! The blossom and daffodils are out in force and the clocks have gone forward and it's beautiful and light (losing that hours sleep though... hated that).

Instagram accounts that deserve more recognition

In our little WhatsApp group chat, myself and the picnic gang were discussing what a mess instagram is and how some of our favourite accounts don't have the followings they deserve and how some huge accounts are actually a little bit pants... So I wanted to give a shout out to some of my favourite accounts, just a few that I think should have many more followers than they do. If you don't follow them already, do it now - you won't be disappointed!

More Netflix Series You Need to Start Right Now

To me, there are few joys in life that compare to a good series binge on Netflix with a good glass of sauvignon and some snacks (cake or chocolate please, but I'm not fussy). Hopefully by now you've watched all my recommendations from my previous post, so I'm back with some more!

Currently I've been loving:

Santa Clarita Diet

Drew Barrymore. What a bloody hotty. This is just one of those series that is just plain stupid but I love it. Drew's character randomly finds herself as some kind of zombie, there is no explanation of how she ended up that way (maybe that will be revealed in later series' - I hope so, also that's not a spoiler is it? I don't think so...) normally there's the standard bitten by something or someone, or scientific mistake or mysterious virus but nope, just a zombie.  Sheila and her husband have to figure out a way to feed her which becomes more and more problematic for them as they live next door to a policeman and a sheriff, plus you know... eating people is sort of wrong and frowned upon anyway soo... It's really light hearted and, although quite gory, it's a silly sort of gory. If you liked iZombie you'll like this!

The Crown

I'm a real fan of the monarchy actually, I think it's lovely and I love all the history that surrounds it. Plus I'm super nosy so this the perfect series for me. Even though the dialogue and scenes are of course dramatised for the program and not accurate (I'm sure our Liz doesn't transcript every conversation she's ever had) it's still such an interesting insight into the start of her reign and life as a monarch, it's only made me admire her more. Also, as a series this is absolutely beautifully put together and well worth all the money they spent on it (it was a lot apparently).


I'm currently watching this and LOVING it. It's got a little bit of a Pretty Little Liars vibe in that it's a high school based murder mystery rather than the A aspect, full of complicated relationships and stories going on simultaneously full of twists and turns (not at all in that annoying way of PLL though...). I'm currently addicted but the episodes currently come to Netflix weekly, which I ABSOLUTELY HATE because I need to watch it all right now. There's only been 6 episodes so far so I can't give a more thorough insight but if you like a bit of teen drama with a twist then this is for you! I think it'll be the next big thing now that PLL is finally coming to an end so it's a good new series to get into I reckon. 


I'd not heard this mentioned by anyone or seen anything about it anywhere but I was desperately scouring Netflix for a new series when I was unwell last week. I read 'a mysterious virus starts killing off adults in the small town of pretty lake' and thought yes! That will do nicely! I love apocalyptic stuff... very entertaining... So I mean that tells you what you need to know to start watching really, basically a virus starts killing everyone over the age of 22 and the kids and young adults are left trapped in this quarantined town to fend for themselves. It's full of conspiracy and twists, once I got through the first few episodes I got so into it, so much so I've now finished season 2 and I'm patiently (read frantically) waiting for them to release season 3. Now, I googled when this would come out and I can't find an awful lot, It doesn't sound like it's been made yet as it's not been that well recieved (maybe it would have if people knew it existed jus sayin) so if everyone could watch it for me, they'll see it's popular and I get to see what happens next please, small favour, worth it I promise it's actually really good, cheers, ta very much.


Not a series but I have found myself stumbling upon lot's of great comedienne's tour episodes on Netflix. First the most recent one I've watched is Katherine Ryan, I love her, I just think she's absolutely hilarious. Whenever she's on a panel show she has me in stitches and this is no exception. Some others include Ali Wong, Jen Kirkman and Iliza Shlesinger, all as equally hilarious and I'd thoroughly recommend them if you fancy a bit of a laugh.

As in my last post about my Netflix series to watch I've tried not to spoil anything, anything I've said you find out in the first episode anyway.

I'm going to have to start doing re runs of my favourites soon because I really am running low on the 'what can I watch next' front so I'd love some suggestions! I'd also love to know if you watch/watched any of these so I've got someone to talk to about with (or if you need someone to be like OHHHMMMYGGGGGOD EPISODE 3 WAAAAAH - then feel free to tweet me just that)

Leave me your favourites in the comments!

Bedside Beauty

While sometimes I fall behind on many of my beauty routines, cleaning my brushes, plucking my eyebrows, shaving my legs... but I love bedtimes and I love the products I currently have on my nightstand. I'm enjoying giving myself a pamper and winding down to enjoy a good night sleep.
