I thought I’d put together a bit of an overview of some of my favourite things of the last few months, including some of the books I’ve managed to read in the depths of dissertation writing, but mostly the things I’ve been doing and places which I’ve been visiting. I’m so late to the party on this one, so this is going to be more of a gallery than an in-depth post! Disney/Universal/America British Museum & Odyssey Panel with Mary Beard Anniversary in Stratford and…Continue Reading “Favourites from Fall”

I’m sat writing this on a lovely Sunday afternoon, sun shining in and curled up on the sofa, safe from the misleading cold of outside. The only downside is that I’m having to watch the football at the same time. Oh well! Keep reading to find out what I’ve been loving over the past week or two. 1. Pretty Honest – Sali Hughes My grandparents kindly got this for me for my birthday earlier this month, and I’ve been reading it bit by bit ever…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 28th February 2016”

Since it was my birthday last weekend, as you might imagine I’ve had quite a few favourites this week! Mostly birthday presents of course. I had a fantastic weekend away in Brighton, and I’ve spent this past weekend with visiting family, which was great fun. Here’s my favourites for the past week or two, and a Happy belated Valentine’s Day to you all! 1. Brighton I absolutely love Brighton. I’ve now been 3 times since last year, and despite never going when the weather’s been…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 15th February 2016”

I can’t quite believe it’s February tomorrow! Which means it will be my birthday really soon! Exciting 🙂 But seriously, January has gone scarily quickly. I find lots of people put extra pressure on themselves throughout the month, whether that be to make it a success, to stick to their resolutions, to diet and do lots of exercise. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not against setting goals and being healthy, but for me personally I find this kind of behaviour just puts more pressure…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 31st January 2016”

Welcome back to my first favourites of 2016! Seeing as I haven’t done a favourites post for over a month, the things mentioned here won’t necessarily be things I’ve been loving just in the past week, but also since Christmas and into the New Year. Enjoy! 1. Perfumes I am obsessed with perfume at the moment! Since Christmas, I’ve picked up three new fragrances, all of which I’ve been loving for different reasons. I’ve asked for one fragrance for my birthday, which is at the beginning of…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 24th January 2016”

Christmas is so so so close now! I can’t believe that when I’m next doing my weekly favourites it will be after Christmas! Despite not being able to get into the Christmas spirit quite as much this year, I have of course enjoyed doing anything Christmas related, so here’s a rather festive themed favourites for you! 1. Christmas Jumpers 🙂 Yesterday we had Christmas Jumper Day at work, which was for charity. I wore this jumper from last year covered in christmas puddings (cuuuute!), and…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 19th December 2015”

I’ve had such a Christmassy few days! It’s finally getting close enough that I can start getting excited, and I’m able to admit that I am, indeed, listening to Christmas songs in the car, in my room, and on Spotify while I’m working.. :’) Roll on this week’s favourites! 1. Christmas trees In the last week I’ve put up 3 proper Christmas trees, decorated 2 of those, and done my own little Christmas tree in my room. It’s been a decorating kind of week. I wouldn’t…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 12th December 2015”

Eeeeeeee it’s nearly December!! Even though I’ve been listening to Christmas songs for a week or two now, it’s going to be great to finally get into the festive season properly, with advent calendars, present-buying, and of course putting the Christmas decorations up. I can’t wait! Here are my favourites for the last full week of November, I’m off to daydream about my first pay day tomorrow… (!!) 1. Day off! I was lucky enough to be allowed a day off on Friday (unpaid, of…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 29th November 2015”

Good evening! I’ve had an excellent Saturday so far, I hope all of our weekends are going well. I’ve just come back from shopping in Oxford, where it was all super Christmassy and festive! On the downside, it was bloody freezing, so I was cold outside and overheating in every shop because of all the layers I was wearing. Not ideal, but we had a lovely lunch, I met up for coffee with an old friend, and I *may* have picked up a little something…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 21st November 2015”

I’ve had quite the eventful weekend, which I’ll be doing a post on soon, so I’ve not had the chance to jot this down until 4.30pm on a Sunday! I also had Friday off, which was my first day off so far and was pretty awesome. I’m really getting into Christmassy stuff as well, which I know is pretty early for most, but I love getting excited about it all. The earlier I get excited, the longer everything lasts, because I never want Christmas to…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 15th November 2015”
