To Kindle or Not To Kindle

I absolutely love reading. I've touched on it before (such as in my To Be Read List post) but I find comfort in the fact that no matter how bad your day has been, you can always lose yourself in a good book.

Storytime: That time I (probably) got heatstroke

We were on holiday and had decided to go on a boat trip to a secluded beach with crystal clear blue seas, pure white sand, and a massive rusting shipwreck slap bang in the middle of it.

Me Made May: My Goals

If you've been reading my blog for a little while, you'll know that I'm trying to teach myself to sew in my spare time. (Spare time?! Ha!) I'm absolutely loving it as it's another way to be creative which I really need as if I'm not making anything I feel like I'm going a bit… Continue reading Me Made May: My Goals
