Having moved out I’ve realised that my thumb is nowhere near as green as it could be. I either overwater or don’t water enough when it comes to flowers, shrubs and other plants.

I’m sure there are plenty of other ways to make them, but this is how I did mine.


Recap: En Otra Piel/In Her Skin – Episode 128

After such a great episode 127 of In Her Skin, I had to keep going and watch the next episode. Read on if you dare.

Favourite Young Adult Books of 2015

I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas/festive season. As we are coming to the end of 2015 (can you believe it?!), I’m taking a look back at some of my favourite young adult books of 2015. Unfortunately, I didn’t meet my Goodreads challenge this year, finishing 41 out of the 50 books that I wanted to read, however, I still managed to read a few gems.
