A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a lovely young woman called Leen, whose writing really struck a chord with me. I've been feeling really stuck with a lot of personal topics, so I am very pleased to host her thoughts about labels here today! "Hello, my name is Leen and I am … Continue reading labels – a box that doesn’t fit anymore
You all know how much I love tea. If I could write poetry, I would write odes and sonnets to its deliciousness. I have a pretty good collection of mugs to drink my tea from, if I say so myself. And even when I do dabble in a coffee or two, I always go back … Continue reading adagio tea – feat. exclusive giveaway!

So I've finally done something that, to be honest, I should have done a long time ago. I've gone teetotal. Trigger warnings: mentions of alcohol I've known that I should probably not drink alcohol for a while now. My horrible psychiatrist told me, my very lovely therapist told me, and my adequate doctor told me. But … Continue reading #mentalhealthmonday – being teetotal doesn’t totally suck

I often also use the lists to find books with specific representation and themes, though obviously because they're made by Goodreads users, they're not perfect. But that's not what I'm … Continue reading why I don’t use Goodreads’ star ratings
It's that time of year again - Valentine's day. To start this post on a personal note, I don't really have any thoughts about Valentine's day.
