Photo Diary: Where Have I Been?

I haven’t posted a photo diary for a little while…therefore, for today, I thought “why not?” This shows what I have been up to recently, with a little look at behind the scenes of this blog at points.

I went to see Emeli Sande! This was onlr as tickets to write about it for this blog and in my column…

Can I now not claim to not be a legitimate Journalist!? I’ve been all the way to Fleet Street!*

*But then again, this was in Brighton..

This proof copy also came in the post for me to to review, courtesy of Canongate. Needless to say, I am very excited to be reading this book!

Where’s the front cover?!

This was part of a larger sample that was posted to me recently to review…(coming soon!) I could smell it through the packaging, which smelt divine! You’ll be able to read all about it soon..

Adding colour to my life!

What have you been doing?




I am pleased to announce that I am working with Basic Beauty Tools. If you go to their website via this link , and with the purchase of a Spongedry, you can get a free foundation blender by adding under ‘Note To Seller’ your colour code: LYDIAPINK for pink, LYDIAPURPLE for purple, and LYDIABLACK FOR black. 

Photo diary. #1 in 2017. 

This is behind the scenes, and what I’ve been doing recently..

Getting creative with my photography..

This is what I’m intending to read next.

Reminiscing about this last year…

Dreaming of cheese!

I’ve atcually baked! And the recipe will be posted soon.

Listening to the formidable Ms Simon..

Experimenting with photography and nail varnish.

What have you been doing?



Photo diary; what I have been doing..

Developing a fondness for a Smooth Smoothie…

As well as the strawberry gloss..

And nails, pretty nails!

And I found lots of books I wish to read…

I’ve also been pondering about advertising. Why would I want to do this?

Then there’s been some odd window displays, to say the least..

But I’ve been lusting over these brouges..

As well as these teeny tiny letter necklaces:

But aren’t these trousers just lovely?

What have you been up to?



15 thoughts I have whilst blogging. 😂

This blog has been going since July 2012; there’s a lot I’ve learnt since then. But, whenever I begin to post, my thoughts follow a train of thought, pretty much the same, as detailed below:

A lot of time is spent doing this..

1. That image looks a little blurry…save for Instagram.

2. Failure to upload; uggghhh!

3. What am I doing, just say here?

4. *sees another blogger with astronomical views*. Why can’t I be like her? And with that amount of views?

5. Do I need to bother writing? Noo. .

6. Emojis seem inappropiate, in a post, but not on Twitter.

7. This film seems awful, but I would rather watch it, than blog.

8. *Looses all motivation to blog*.

9. Gosh, the cat is a nice companion, when sat, at my laptop, late at night.

10. Yay, there’s….one view…

11. What is the purpose of life?

12. Hopefully this tweet will be recieved well.

13. *silent screaming…*

14. *Loss of more motivation…*

15. Blogging is the best thing I have ever done. And I am not going to give up. Not at all.

London Photo Diary: City Girl!*

*obviously meant as self-deprecation.

I was very lucky to visit London recently, and thought that I would share my photos with you:

From H&M

I just love a grumpy cat, don’t you?

From H&M also.

And some great blouse structuring. .

Hobbs Window.

Jackie Kennedy dresses seemed to be all the rage. I, for one, am not complaining.

Whole Foods Market Window.

I love it..

Ramen Noodles.

What’s a bone Daddy?

Where have you recently visited?



Rejigging my filofax…


So, this is post three-and hopefully, there’ll be more to come, having order a personal red metrapool version. (The above has a problem with the rings, and stitching has come loss. I’ll do an unboxing post when that arrives!)

My filofax was becoming to fill to shut properly, meaning some inserts I removed, just for clarity. I also rearranged it sequentially.

Photo diary: behind the scenes…

Just how long has it been, since I’ve written one of these? (Answer: quite a while.) Here are just a few things I’ve been doing:

Spotting Kylie Jenner nail varnish at my local Superdrug..

Getting serious Vinyl envy at Sainsburys..

Reading…review coming soon!

It’s so pretty! 😀

Looking back as to when I blogged about cats, as feline-centred content seems to rate highly these days…

And the same with Sylvia Plath content!

Review of this also coming soon!

I’ve also: spoken at Portcullis House (scary!) 👠 Interned at NME 👠 Been featured over at Philofaxy 👠 Read Reasons To Stay Alive
