I’ve mentioned a few times on my blog and in my vlogs that I joined the gym in November and have been going somewhat regularly since then. After a little break when I went home to Devon for a week, then stayed a bit longer because I had a cold, it’s been a little difficult to get back into the swing of going to the gym every other day. Under Armour motivated me by inviting me to join their #GoneDark…

We all know you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but just look at how beautiful this one is! Alwyn Hamilton’s debut novel, Rebel of the Sands, is my latest book obsession. “She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.” – If that doesn’t intrigue you, what will? The main character Amani is everything I could have hoped for in a female protagonist, which is quite rare for a fantasy novel. She definitely…

Recently I reached 650 followers on bloglovin, and 600 on instagram, both of which I’m really grateful for (although we all know how much instagram followers fluctuate!). To say thank-you to those who take the time to read my blog, I’ve decided to host a little giveaway of a few beauty things.

That’s where the Busy B Book Journal comes in. I’m a bit…

  Free Writing Friday 12th February 2016. 1:28am. Recently I’ve been so tired and uninspired, so somebody recommended ‘free writing’. I don’t really know the specifics, but I suppose you just write about whatever comes to mind, so that’s what I’m doing. Even though I’m a ‘blogger’, I often find it difficult to get words out through typing… I usually write out my history essays by hand too, then type them up afterwards. It’s a slow process, but if I’m writing…

It’s that time of year again… Valentine’s Day is coming up. It’s a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. My boyfriend is in California until June, so we can’t be one of those annoying couples and go on a cute dinner / cinema date, but that hasn’t stopped me from procuring a few little gifts and a cute card for him, which will probably cost a fair bit to post to the US. Last year, my…
