*Trigger Warning* - self harm & eating disorders are subjects that come up briefly in this story. This is a work of fiction. I was sixteen the first time I heard it. I wondered whether it was a joke at first, because he said it so quietly. He wouldn’t have been the first boy to… Continue reading “Something Beautiful” – Short Story
I’ve been waiting for a good long while for this movie to come out. A semi-good side effect of this quarantine is that it got released on iTunes earlier than expected! Ever since I saw the trailer for this movie, it stuck with me and I knew I had to see it. Not only for… Continue reading Endings Beginnings – A Review
I know I'm not alone in this self-isolation-going-a-bit-mental-staying-at-home-stressing-because-i-can't-control-whats-happening-to-the-world-right-now state... which should be comforting, but honestly life has been completely flipped upside down. I mentioned in an earlier post that I have Generalised Anxiety Disorder, and few spatterings of other things that bleed into it. But, I wanted to talk a little more about it, because… Continue reading You’re not alone
Given the crazy state of the world at the moment I thought I'd do a purely cosy/warm blog post that makes you want to just jump onto the sofa, and curl up with a blanket and a steaming cup of tea. Days are so uncertain right now. Things can change from one hour to the… Continue reading my top 10 cosy movies
I wrote this a while ago, but as I re-read it the other day I realised that I can't be the only person to feel this way and to feel so 'out of place'. So, here it is. My small writing on my life and who I am. ❤ "I feel like I’m constantly battling… Continue reading The explanation of the unexplainable.
Hello Lovely! Thanks for stopping by 🙂 This is the first post in this series and I'm so excited. I don't know about you but writing can feel like a lonely endeavour sometimes. It's literally just you and a laptop, sometimes a coffee or a mountain pile of chocolate to keep you company. (Although, I… Continue reading Writers Wednesday : Routine… or lack of one…
There's no new specific blog post today. I just wanted to do a little 'start of the week' ramble. ❤ This week is going to be a busy one for me - which to be honest I really love. I love always having something to do and get done. I kind of go a little… Continue reading Happy Monday!
My goal for 2020 was to read a lot more than I did last year. 2019 was a whirlwind, full of a lot of things I never want to repeat, but one thing I really regret was that I didn’t read half as much as I wanted. I also can’t remember what books I read… Continue reading Book Review: The Dark Between The Stars
Although it’s not technically the first week of January, it is the very first blog post of Monday Morning Tea in twenty twenty! Which is all kinds of exciting. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers do a ‘2019 wrap up’, but 2019 was… *puts on a ridiculous British accent*… absolutely ghastly darling! So, instead of… Continue reading Twenty – Twenty
There is something so satisfying about creating a playlist of all the best songs and then just letting it play! From late November up until Christmas Day there is generally some sort of christmas music being played in my house. I did try and play some festive songs at the start of November, but my… Continue reading Ultimate Christmas Playlist
It seems to be something we all have to put up with at this time of year. As soon as November rolls around and everyone can see the gleam of Christmas inching ever closer...

It's a love that I have, books and Christmas. So, when they are combined I get very excited.

So, here are five books that are my go-to… Continue reading Five Christmas Books to Make You Happy

I've been told quite a few times that I have a 'unique' way of looking at things. For years I wasn't sure if that was a compliment but I'm choosing to take it as one. And I think I've realized what they meant. I don't see things in black and white, I don't even see… Continue reading Quotes That I Live By
***I apologize for my long absence! There is no excuse... actually there is a very good one... My dear husband got sick, then kindly gave it to me. Right before we travelled to Melbourne for my brothers wedding. (Which was beautiful). So, the month long absence is over and you can expect to see me… Continue reading Books I Wish I’d Read…
Just to start things off, I've been a vegetarian for over ten years now. This isn't some diet or fad that only lasted a few weeks or months, this is my life. I wanted to talk about it because it's something I am very passionate about, I love being vegetarian, it's a part of me,… Continue reading How to be a vegetarian when your partner isn’t…

To make it a place that people love coming to, either for reassurance that their fine just the way they are, book recommendations, skincare tips that… Continue reading A little note on me…
Don't let the title fool you. I'm not some sort of super confident woman who never has days of low self -esteem and is always on point. I'm not, and frankly I think a woman like that would be a scary thing to behold. But, I've found over the course of 2019 that I've gotten… Continue reading How I’ve finally managed to feel confident…
