I Am Very Busy

Well hellO there,

I needed a new diary & when I seen this last month in Paperchase while I was in Manchester I knew it was love at first sight. It cost £20 & if you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen my post about it there.


AnyhOo, last week Blogland & stationary addicts alike went mad for it after my post got noticed by a few followers who passed it on to a few more & so on & before I knew it this cute lil book had gone global (ish) & was being bought en mass. 

So what’s so good about it?


The question should be what isn’t so good about it & the answer would be Nothing!!
Firstly it’s a 17 month diary, which means I’m sorted till January 2017.  More importantly there’s alot of room for writing, which is kind of the point with a diary.


Next up are the stickers which I’ll undoubtedly deem ‘too good’ to ever actually use.  But just look at them there in all their cute stickery glory.  Then there’s the secret code bit which will reduce you to being a kid no matter what your age.


The illustrations are fab too.  There’s one at the end of each month.  All the artists are credited in the back page if you’d like to check out their other work.  The ribbon book mark is a bonus, helping you find the correct date/ page immediately without having to waste time flicking through.


I love the random sayings scattered throughout, wee mantras to put smiles on our faces.  There’s also a pocket on the back page for anything you might need a pocket for.

Thanks as always for stopping by. ♡

Taking a leap . . .

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So here I am  . . At the grand old age of 32 starting a Blog . . How original eh . . What it will be about I don’t reeeally know yet . . & will most likely go unread but ho hum . . I’ve wanted to do this for a while but have just been a big scaredy cat at the idea of committing my internal musings to the interwab for all eternity . .

Like a great many people (depending on the day) I either live with depression or struggle with it . .
So I thought I’d take proactive steps to try & feel less depressed by giving myself (at first) monthly achievable goals at this writing malarkey . .
Again, like a lot of people I get especially down over the Christmas season . .
So here I am starting my blog on the cusp of December in a bid to keep my head occupied & the barking dog at bay . .  .
I figure I’m going to blog about things that interest me . .
Makeup, mental health, music, animals, reading, cooking, TV, crafts, travel & whatever else takes my fancy . . .

I’d love to meet some nice people along the way & am looking forward to discovering lots of great blogs!! ☺
