Thoughts on magazines

I’ve always enjoyed reading magazines; there are times when I would almost have considered myself addicted to them, if such a thing is possible.  When I was a child I used to love choosing one to buy with my mum every Saturday morning.  As an adult, I’ve read them all, from the big glossies to […]

Feeling like a blogging fraud? graphic

Feeling like a blogging fraud?

Stay with me here now please readers, because I realise this might sound a little strange.  But some days I feel like I am not a blogger, and like I am about to be found out. I know what you’ll say.  “But, Llinos, this is your blog, you are clearly a blogger!”  “You have written […]

A Decade in Review: My Twenties

  I turned 30 in February (and the photos aren’t ready so I haven’t blogged about it yet whoops) but I thought it would be fun to take a (very brief) look back over my twenties and the events of that decade. You can read the lessons I learnt from my twenties here. 2007-2008, aged 20-21: I […]

Mother’s Day 2017

This year was the first time I spent Mother’s Day with my mum in years, as we live so far apart.  However this year she was staying with us.  It did get a bit confusing, as I had part of her gift and card delivered to her home address, and her visit was on short […]

This is my 500th blog post!

I am really bad at marking blogging milestones and social media numbers but today I am making an effort, because this is a really worthy milestone.  Today marks my 500th blog post.  I actually started blogging in January 2014 (although that was under a different name) so I thought today I would share a couple […]

Go Send: My Experience

In December I ordered some Bath and Body Works candles from the US.  They don’t deliver to the UK, so I used a mail company called Go Send to ship them to my home address.  I’m finally getting round to sharing the experience with you. I have to admit, when I saw that a couple of UK Youtubers […]

Lush bath: Intergalactic bath bomb

I’ve recently been enjoying having a bath about once a week after years of not having them (don’t worry I have been showering!).  Naturally I headed to the bath lover’s paradise, Lush, and picked up their intergalactic bath bomb for £4.25. Lush’s write up for this bath bomb is so extravagant that the poor bomb […]

Reflecting on February graphic

Reflecting on February

  It’s time to look back over February, my birthday month. Highlights I went charity shopping quite successfully.   My parents came to stay for the weekend and we went to Pontypridd and a craft fair.   Oliver hosted a 30th birthday party for me at our house.   I enjoyed my mystery 30th birthday […]

What My Twenties Have Taught Me graphic

What My Twenties Have Taught Me

It’s the final week of my twenties.  Seems like a good time to look back over the decade to tell you what I’ve learnt! Cancer isn’t over Cancer has been physically over for seventeen years.  While that sentence brings me untold pleasure, I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that cancer isn’t over […]
