I’m always going on about how much I adore this chick, and I’ve missed her every single day since moving back to London. She is my pumpkin, my moon and stars, my liebschen. Let’s do … Continue reading Happy Birthday Rosie! ♥
I know what everyone says about Valentine’s Day. It’s overly commercial, it’s meaningless, it’s just another marketing ploy to pressure people into spending money, etc. But in the world we live in, nice things like love are in short supply.

One of our first assignments was to write a short piece that described ourselves through someone else’s eyes. The teacher said we could pick any moment in time- it didn’t … Continue reading Untitled 1.
Darlings, it’s been a good week for awards! I can just see myself standing up on stage now, clutching my award.

I’d just like to thank my mum…” … Continue reading The Liebster Award

“Mummy, why come my hair isn’t soft like yours?” I drop the comb into my lap and sigh. “It’s HOW come, baby. How come.” She shuffles round to look up at me from her spot on the floor, and my breath catches in my throat. Every time I look at her I see her father. … Continue reading Untamed
