What I’ve Been Up To [10]: Being Kind to Myself

We’re living in strange times and have been for about a year now. It’s weird; everyone’s talking about ‘going back to normal’, but I can’t even truly imagine normal anymore. These days, ‘normal’ feels like staying home, seeing maybe one person at a time and making sure you’re home before nine, when curfew starts. So, I can’t […]

All the Books I read in February – Mini Reviews

In February, I only read three books, which isn’t a lot for me. However, I wasn’t expecting to read a large quantity of books, because my main focus was The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon, which is an epic fantasy novel of quite epic proportions. It took me all month, but I feel […]

Recipe: Mini Apple and Blueberry Pies

I don’t know about you, but I am one hundred percent ready for spring to arrive. Over the past week or so, we had wonderfully spring-like weather in the Netherlands and I even sat outside on my balcony reading in the sunshine last weekend! It was absolute bliss and it makes me long for more […]

It’s Valentine’s Day! A day that’s all about love and romance, but also kind of about capitalism and consumerism *record scratch* Yep, I’m one of those people; I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day for several reasons. When I was single, it just made me feel crappy and lonely, which is how this day […]

Recipe: Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookie Pie

On Friday, it was World Nutella Day (don’t ask me why I know these things…) so I was inspired to bake something with everyone’s favourite hazelnut spread! It ended up being a cookie pie – something I’d never made before but that’s always seemed like a great idea to try sometime. I was right! When I […]

All the Books I Read in January – Mini Reviews

As I mentioned in my final mini reviews post of 2020, I’m going to do things a little bit differently in 2021. I’m no longer writing mini reviews every single month, but instead I’m filming them for one big mini review video at the end of every month. However, I am aiming to write more full length […]

In an isolated college town in the hills of Southern California, a freshman girl stumbles into her dorm room, falls asleep—and doesn’t wake up. She sleeps through the morning, into the evening. Her roommate, Mei, cannot rouse her. Neither can the paramedics who carry her away, nor the perplexed doctors at the hospital. Then a […]
