‘Amazing April’ hasn’t exactly started with a bang. I just haven’t had the adequate oompf to even get it started. I’ve been feeling pretty run down this week and I’ve been going to bed at a ridiculously early hour most nights to try and combat that. Woe is me, huh? This is me being all period-y and needy – nobody needs to hear it. … Read More PRO-crastination


Amazing April

I’m in a bit of a slump at the moment with the blog. I mean, I have been blogging regularly but it’s been mainly film reviews (which obviously I LOVE) but this isn’t exclusively a film blog and I want more of *me* to shine through.

The Empress’ Old Clothes

I still love every minute though because cardigans, PSLs and horror movies. Ah, the horror movies. It’s not like I ever need an excuse to indulge my favourite past … Read More 31 Horrors

Blogtober 2016

I’m not even sure that, a) Blogtober is even a real thing or b) I can deal with the cutesiness of the word ‘Blogtober’ (too close to the vomit-worthy ‘Vlogging’ for my taste) but. But I’m all too aware of neglecting my most important creative space for shiny new projects (and procrastination) so thought I would try to blog here every day in the … Read More Blogtober 2016

Set Three Goals

First things first: let’s set some goals and plan for success. Via The Daily Post’s Blogging 201 program (20th October 2014) A brief one from me today but I wanted to check in on Blogging 201’s first day and set out my three goals. This is quite a hard one since I haven’t really thought about what I want to achieve yet, even though … Read More Set Three Goals
