Mrs Tickit’s Pantry and Rochester High Street

Last week, my Mum and I decided to pay a visit to Rochester. I love Rochester, with its many pubs and eateries. It also has a lovely variety of quirky shops, perfect for finding gifts for people or something unusual for yourself. I think it is one of the few places where you could probably find something for everyone. Continue reading “Mrs Tickit’s Pantry and Rochester High Street”

Mystery Blogger Award

This is the third blogger award I’ve been nominated for now! They say three’s a crowd, but it certainly isn’t when it comes to awards. The more the merrier, as far as I’m concerned!

I was nominated for this award by the lovely Tasha at It’s a Tasha thing. Thank you Tasha!

A letter to my daughter at 6 months old

A letter to my baby girl at 6 months old, expressing my love for her and discussing the milestones and firsts of the past month.

Dear Autumn,

I’m sure each month goes faster than the last. How are we at half a year already, my little cutie? I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since I got to meet you and first held you in my arms.

The 90s tag – my life as a 90s kid!

Life as a 90s kid was pretty good – this post is about what my favourite music, TV and fashions were during my childhood! Get ready for a lot of nostalgia!

I was born right at the beginning of 1992, so looking back on things from the 90s is very nostalgic for me. I miss it in many ways, even though I often wonder what on earth my mum was dressing me in! “It was nice at the time”, she tells me. I have to admit, though, I did buy myself some sparkly silver jelly shoes in River Island the year before last when they came back into fashion!

I am a 90s kid through and through, so when I saw the 90s tag blog post by Jasmine at Thoughts From Jasmine I was so excited. Then I was asked to do it in this wonderful post over at The Bits and Bobs in my Brain.

How (not) to remove a corkscrew nose piercing in 20 steps

This is how I removed my corkscrew nose stud and got it back in again. It was pretty eventful, to say the least!

The other week, I bought myself a nose ring. After a year and a half of having my nose pierced, I thought I’d finally change my stud to a ring as I love how they look.

When I got my nose pierced, the piercer told me that it was a corkscrew nose stud and that they’re difficult to take out and put in. So, this is the tale of how I took my stud out and put the ring in. Continue reading “How (not) to remove a corkscrew nose piercing in 20 steps”

30 things to do before 30

Here is my list of 30 things I’d like to do before my 30th birthday.

As my friends keep reminding me, as I have recently turned 25 I am now closer to 30 than I am 20! Quite frankly, this kind of scares me as time seems to have gone so fast since I was 16 and seems to go quicker each year. As such, I felt the need to make a list of things I’d like to do before I turn 30. Hopefully I can achieve quite a few of these, so even if the time goes quickly, I’ll feel like I’ve achieved a lot with it!

A letter to my daughter at 5 months old

A letter to my baby girl at 5 months old, expressing my love for her and discussing the milestones and firsts of the past month.

Dear Autumn,

Firstly, you’ve grown so much more hair over the last couple of weeks! Where has it all come from all of a sudden? I love stroking it, it’s so soft. We can definitely see that it’s blonde now, the same colour as your beautiful long eyelashes.
