life :: 2016, a year in review 

Rather focusing on all the negatives 2016 brought me (although let's be honest it's the way we act, and not the numbers themselves), I thought I'd re-digest the good parts and the happy parts, and look forward to the next year ahead. So, if you're interested, brew a tea n cuddle a pillow and have a… Continue reading life :: 2016, a year in review 

life :: change of heart

Soooooo hello. Again it's been a lil while and I do apologise for that. Christmas break is nearly upon me however, so fingers crossed I'll have some juicy (it's never really that juicy let's face it) stuff to discuss with you. Today I kinda want to address something (yes it will be relatively faith-related) that's… Continue reading life :: change of heart

fashion :: interviewee

{Now then stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!} 1 Samuel 12:16. So yesterday I headed back to my second home i.e. Lancaster for a job interview. I'm not going to go into too much detail about the interview, but I could not not talk about my… Continue reading fashion :: interviewee

life :: you go girl

In all honesty, the following are just snippets of bigger things to be said but I want to cover them here anyway. FAMILY "You Go Girl" has been a phrase that has always… Continue reading life :: you go girl 

life :: mass

While I'm "working on posts" (i.e my brain won't configure to write something coherent), I thought I'd put together a little post.  As I'm sure many of you are aware, Pinterest is perhaps the best source of inspiration. Particularly motivational quotes. I get that obsessed reading words of truth that I both pin them and… Continue reading life :: mass

life :: second homecoming

I don't think I could be more excited for my second year of university. For me, with a fresh sense of purpose and more clarity, I am going to go back looking at the year expectantly. As it is for most, first year is like a constant rollercoaster. There are many ups, but the downs… Continue reading life :: second homecoming

fashion :: dazzled in effort

After reading "Can we talk about...Gucci", I feel as if I have connected with Claudia Winkleman on a level I never would have expected. I want to be that "44 year old..." who writes like that about a designer brand.  Maybe it's merely the wannabe journalist, the over-analytical, ex-English Language student in me, but ahhhhh. I… Continue reading fashion :: dazzled in effort

summer :: big blue

PART 1  28/06/16 It is now Thursday and I felt it time to reflect on our days so far.  Tenerife is so much more than I ever expected. Yes, so it's just one of those islands commonly inhabited by Englishman during the summer months, but it's also tropical, platano-infested and mountainous.  Maybe I am just… Continue reading summer :: big blue
