Penguin “Little Black Classics”

Penguin “Little Black Classics” This is my first blog post since changing my blog name! It feels weird, but awesome. Anyway, I briefly mentioned in my book giveaway blog post that I ordered a load of the new Penguin “Little Black Classics”. Penguin have released 80 classic books for only 80p each to celebrate their 80th anniversary. Did I mention that they’re only 80p?! Insane.  I would probably order all of them if I could, but for now I decided to get several Classics (Greek and Roman) books because I study Ancient History at Uni, and a few other books that I’ve been…

Penguin Platform & YA Fiction Giveaway! ♡

I was recently introduced to Penguin Platform, an awesome online community across social media for young adult readers like myself. Penguin Platform provide book recommendations for teens, interviews with authors and other exclusive and fun book-related content. I was also given the opportunity to hold a book giveaway on my blog! 

My experience with Aliexpress

Aliexpress is a somewhat controversial website similar to eBay. They sell *very* inexpensive items from China, such as clothes, stationery and cute kawaii toys. I’ve seen several wishlist posts from bloggers featuring items from Aliexpress, but I’ve never seen a review, which made me slightly sceptical of the quality of products and the reliability of receiving items from sellers. I decided to go ahead and order a few items from my wishlist to see how long they would take to arrive, and judge their quality then write a review post… The things we do for blogging! I didn’t spend much…

Cute Accessories from Prairie Charms

Cute Accessories from Prairie Charms! Yesterday I received the most adorable package in the post: a mystery bag from Prairie Charms, a handmade accessories boutique. The mystery bag cost me only £5 plus delivery, and everything I got was really cute! 

Wherever I Go

I made a music video! I’ve been living in London since I started my BA in September, and I love it here. There are so many things going on, so many sites to see, and it’s beautiful. I wanted to capture my experiences of London on camera, and the perfect opportunity arose – Mark Knopfler (from Dire Straits) is running a competition to create a music video for his latest song “Wherever I Go” from his new album. Of course, as I’m a massive fan of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler, I instantly jumped out of bed (I’ve been recovering…

My University Bedroom | George Home

Just a quick warning: This post is very picture-heavy!  I love my University bedroom. It’s smaller than my one at home, but it’s cosy (despite the heating not working properly), and I like having my own ensuite bathroom. Since September, I’ve been slowly making this room more homely and I’m finally happy with it, thanks to George Home, who sent me some lovely homeware items! 

Woman In Black

First up, I apologise for the crappy iPhone-quality picture! Last night I went to see Woman In Black 2 with my friend, so of course I decided to wear black. I decided to write up a quick outfit of the day post because I actually made an effort and straightened my hair for the first time in forever. This skater dress is from Lipsy a few years ago, and it’s still one of my favourite dresses for going out because it fits so well. I could totally join the Coven from American Horror Story in this outfit… Anyway, I really enjoyed Woman in Black…
