It’s a new year and time to set some goals again. While this year doesn’t necessarily feel as fresh and hopeful, because we are still in a pandemic and my country is still in a semi-lockdown, I still thought it would be helpful to set some goals for how I want the year to go.Continue reading “2020 New Years Resolutions”
I like setting New Years Resolutions. I don’t necessarily hold myself strictly to them, but they give me an idea of what I would like to achieve for the year ahead.

I have also noticed a dip in my IBS/mental health this week, leading to me taking half the week off. So IContinue reading “IBS/Mental Health Update”
This week, I thought I’d talk you through my history with a chronic syndrome: IBS.

So this is coming to you a little late, given that it is now April, but I promise it’s worth it. We took a little foray last time into more lifestyle related matters, but this week we’re back talking books! So without further ado, here are my favourite books of 2019!
I’ve been using good reads and, now, The Story Graph since 2012 to track the books I’ve read across the years, but I also love a good list. So without further ado, here is the list of all the books I’ve read since 2012 (in roughly chronological order)!
