The Bookish Box | Unboxing & Review

You’d think that as a self confessed bibliophile that I’d have tried every literary subscription box on the market but the truth is, until last month I had never ordered one! But as soon The Bookish Box announced their Beauty and the Beast themed box I simply had to give it a go.

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi | Review

If ever there was a book that proved graphic novels are valid literature, this would be it. I picked this up after a friend recommended it to me but I was not expecting it to be so powerful and important. Through striking black and white panels, Marjane Satrapi recalls her childhood in Iran both before, during and after the Islamic revolution.

This brutally honest memoir follows Marji as a young girl eager to fight against the revolution in political demonstrations, to a teenager whisked off to Vienna all the way through to an adult struggling to cope with her cultural identity and the demons of her past.

Spring Home Inspiration

Ever since Ocean Retail Park* invited me for a visit in THIS post, I have been obsessed with all the pretty homeware they have on offer; it's become my go-to place whenever I feel like my home needs a revamp. With Spring quickly approaching, Ocean Retail Park kindly sent me some fantastic home inspiration, that is simply too good not to share.

Birthday Girl OOTD

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! Hey. Did you hear? IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Today I turn the magical age of 23 and as you can tell, I’m pretty excited about it. As a kid, I always imagined myself at twenty-something to be a sophisticated journalist, pushing 6ft and generally girl bossing it (blame watching 13 Going On 30 countless times for that wishful thinking) but it turns out I haven’t really changed much over the years.

The Books That Made Us Love Reading | World Book Day

Happy World Book Day! Besides Christmas and my birthday, World Book Day has to be my favourite day of the year. To celebrate I have teamed up with 3 fantastic book bloggers, to discuss the books that made us love reading. We'll also be giving away 5 incredible YA reads, so stay tuned for that.

Books are such a gift to humanity and I for one, firmly believe that everyone should read. Reading is a gateway to all learning; it develops your vocabulary and imagination and let's be fair - books are awesome. With news articles and teachers expressing their fear of the declining literacy of teenagers, it’s so important that now more than ever, young people are presented with quality content and shown that there is more to literature than the same 20 classics we are all forced to read in school.

Cute Homeware & Gadget Wishlist

1. Nessie Ladle - here 2. Frog Prince Book Ends - here 3. Polaroid Camera - here 4. Totoro Duvet Set - here  5. Daschund Planter - SOLD OUT
 6. Unicorn Power Bank - here 7. Marie Tsum Tsum Piggybank - here 8. Heart Cast Iron Dutch Oven - here 9. Whale Mug - here 10. Heart Radio - here 

Why is it that, when you’re on a spending ban you find lots of things that you want to buy? Well that’s been the case for me this week and instead of having a huge shopping spree I decided to put together a little wishlist.

All you have to do to make me want to buy homeware is a) make it look like an animal or heart and b) make it pastel coloured. My housemate jokes about how I always manage to find cute pieces (I even found lilac bin liners this week) and my magpie eyes for all things adorable have been at it again. I recently got THIS duvet set from Banggood and I love it! Not only is it a gorgeous design it’s also super soft and cosy so I’ve been on the hunt for more like it. The pink and pastel Totoro set is right up my street and I’ll definitely be putting some money aside for it.

I spied the pretty, heart print radio at Aldi, would you believe! At £29.99 it’s a bit pricey considering it’s not a necessity but it’s definitely a bargain compared to other retro looking radios. I absolutely love everything on this list and will definitely have to resist buying them (well, for now anyway hehe).

Did you like this wishlist? What was your favourite item?
