How to Make the Most of Autumn

It’s not new information that I love autumn and all things wintery, from the scents of winter candles to the chunkiness of the knit, if it’s to do with autumn you can sign me up.

But I know my breed is few and far between, I mean hands up who else loves cozy living rooms instead of hot beaches? So I have compiled a list on how to embrace autumn as there’s no getting round it really… Continue reading “How to Make the Most of Autumn”

Things you NEED to watch on NETFLIX

I don’t know about you, but I’m ALWAYS stuck for things to watch on Netflix, don’t get me wrong I have a list longer than it needs to be but when it comes down to actually Netflix and Chilling my mind goes blank and I never know what you press play on.

So here is a short list of some of my go to programmes that are just too good to not watch, even when you feel at a loss!

Gilmore Girls – A Year in The Life

Since this came out last year I’ve watched those four episodes countless amount of times.
It’s the perfect series to make you feel all warm and snuggly (plus it totally gives you and excuse to binge watch the first seven series…)
Lorelai and Rory, the fast-talking, coffee-loving, mother-daughter duo, are back with this revival. It takes viewers back to Stars Hollow for an entire year, with an episode for each season — starting with winter and concluding with fall. 


Burt’s Buzz –

This is a documentary about the creator of Burts Bees, it’s a humble watch that will make you realise what you take for granted and will encourage you to appreciate everything you have.
Burt’s Buzz takes an intimate look at the world of Burt Shavitz, the face and co-founder of Burt’s Bees, exploring his fascinating and utterly unique life. Wise and wry, ornery and opinionated, the reclusive Shavitz is committed to living off the land and keeping true to his humble beginnings despite his celebrity status.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

I’ve watched it since the first season, now believe me when I say it does get better! I was less than impressed with some of series two but I pushed through and they really brought it back!
After being rescued from an underground bunker in which she lived the past 15 years, Kimmy Schmidt decides to move to New York to have a normal life. She makes friends with her new roommate Titus, and works as a babysitter for Jacqueline Voorhees, the wife of a billionaire with many issues. Even though many obstacles are thrown her way, Kimmy makes the best of her new life while having to adapt to the new world around her.


That 70’s Show

I watched this when it was being shown as reruns every so often on the telly so I was more than happy to find it on Netflix and attempt to work my way through the eight series.
Eric Forman is a typical high school student growing up in Wisconsin in 1976 with his family and his friends. Together, they have the same kind of joys and sorrows that just about every teenager has while growing up. This show parodied many of the attitudes, events and fads of the 70s, along with those who grew up at the time.

that 70s show.jpeg


This is an adaptation of Sophia Amoruso’s book Girlboss about how she built her empire. If you’ve read the book you will understand why this series is inspiring, Britt Robertson embodied Sophia in an amazing way and managed to turn her story into an epic coming of age battle, which makes you want to become the ultimate #Girlboss
Sophia, a misfit, discovers a passion for fashion, becoming an unlikely businesswoman in the process. As her business grows, however, she has to learn to cope with life as her own boss. This show is loosely based on the true story of Nasty Gal Founder, Sophia Amoruso.

Beginners guide to a Bullet Journal

By now you will have seen or at least heard of a bullet journal, but if not, this guide will show you what it is, what they do for you and give you an insight in how to set one up.

What is a bullet journal?

A bullet journal is a customisable journal, it can be a to do list, sketchbook, notepad, diary but most likely all of the above! It’s a place where you can write everything down, I use mine as a to do list/ diary.

What do you need?!

At minimum you will need
1 x Black pen
1 x Ruler
1 x Notebook – blank, dotted or squared!

(My notebook is one I received exclusively through Ohh Deer’s Papergang subscription box, this is with blank pages)

Blog photo.jpg

To start with you need to make an index, this is like the backbone of the bullet journal, this is where you organise the whole journal and where you plan where everything will go in your journal. You add each topic with page numbers and every topic is called a ‘collection’.

Next you think about what collections you want. In official bullet journals there are 3 main collections:

FUTURE LOG: Where you write down events happening in the coming months

MONTHLY LOG: Where you organise your month, this is laid out in two ways…

  1. Calendar page: write events and tasks that are happening this month
  2. Task page: tasks you want to complete this month and ones you completed the month before

DAILY LOG: This is a day to day log where you give yourself a to-do list for every day.

Okay… now it’s time to think of your page designs.

Do you want a monthly welcome page? A habit tracker or personal goals page? Here are a few examples of layouts you could use.

I use the calendars from my Papergang subscription to introduce a new month.

One thing you have to remember is DO NOT WORRY if it doesn’t turn out perfect, it’s only for you and the more you practice the better and more organised it will become.

So, happy journaling! Have a look at the types of pages I’ve been doing for the next couple of months and let me know what types of pages you have gone for in your journal!
