2015 Roundup

Thursday, 31 December 2015



New Year's Eve is upon us once again. It's the perfect time to reflect on the good and the bad that has happened over the last 12 months and decide on what changes you would like to make and, hopefully, stick to moving forward. In many ways this hasn't been my most amazing year but so many great things have also happened. I am so grateful to the friends and family that have helped me get through, what felt like, the end of the world to me. I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and even though there is still a lot of hard work left to get there, I know 2016 is going to be much better!

Lush Cinders Bath Bomb Review

Thursday, 17 December 2015


There is only a week until Christmas and I finally get some time off work!!! I haven't had a week off from the studio since last Christmas, so I am definitely counting down the days until I shut up shop for a little while. I though I would get into the Christmas spirit though and try out one of the Lush Christmas products that I received at their blogger event a few weeks back. 

Gillian Flynn - The Grownup Review

Sunday, 13 December 2015


A young woman is making a living, faking it as a cut-price psychic working at Spiritual Palms (with some illegal soft-core sex work on the side). She makes a decent wage - mostly by telling people what they want to hear. But then she meets Susan Burke. Susan moved to the city one year ago with her husband and 15-year old stepson Miles. They live in a Victorian house called Carterhook Manor, built in 1893. Susan has become convinced that some malevolent spirit is inhabiting their home, and taking possession of the stepson. She has even found trickles of blood on the wall. The young woman doesn't believe in exorcism or the supernatural, but she does see an opportunity to make a lot of money. However when she enters the house for the first time, and meets Miles, she begins to feel it too, as if the very house is watching her, waiting, biding its time...

Bath Christmas Markets

Sunday, 6 December 2015


This weekend I went to Bath to do a bit of Christmas shopping and visit the Christmas Markets. I have been so busy in work over the last few weeks I have been counting down the days so I could have a day away from the studio getting into the Christmas spirit.
