Wishes Under a Starlit Sky by Lucy Knott | Book Review

I love nothing more than cosying up with a good book, and during the festive season it only gets better; Christmas lights, a mince pie or two, and a festive read make for a perfect cosy afternoon.

The Sunday Catch Up #8

Hello hello, time for another Sunday catch up where I'll be sharing all things I've been reading, watching and listening to recently.

Zesty Lemon Drizzle Cupcakes


Autumn is the perfect season for a bit of  weekend baking, and these lemon drizzle cupcakes certainly don't disappoint! Soft, lemony sponge topped with a zesty sugar drizzle - these cupcakes are an ideal pick me up on a rainy Sunday with a cup of tea.

Let's Chat | Thoughts on Finishing University

After 5 years and 2 degrees I have finished Uni! My first degree being BSc (hons) Politics and International Relations, and the second MA Public Administration and Public  Policy. It's been a long ole' journey, and now I'm job hunting with little else to do, I have been pondering over my feelings towards finally being finished with the student life.

The Sunday Catch Up #7

Long time no blog! The past few months have been rather hectic with ups and downs, and working hard on my Masters dissertation. With my MA finished and having moved into a new flat, now seemed like a great time for a catch up post - perfect cup of tea in bed type reading.

Banana and Chocolate Chunk Loaf

Few things are better than a cup of tea with a piece of warm banana bread studded with melty chunks of chocolate.

The Sunday Catch Up #6

There's nothing like a relaxing Sunday; the chance to have a bit of a catch up and get yourself feeling refreshed for the week ahead.

5 On My Reading List

This year I've set myself the goal of reading 60 books. Maybe slightly optimistic, but I really want to continue prioritising reading over endless scrolling and Netflix binging.

Dairy Free Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

Chocolate and orange is the ultimate flavour combination. Sweet and rich, yet zesty and fruity. I'm still waiting on Terry to make a dairy free version, but until then I'll stick with these. Easy to whip up, chocolatey, moist cupcakes with a zesty chocolate top, and no dairy in sight.
