The Cosy Autumn Book Tag

It’s been a while since I filmed a video but I felt the urge again, so I found a fun book tag to ease myself back into things. As I’ve said in previous posts, I’m absolutely adoring autumn this year – the changing leaves are especially bringing me a lot of joy! I’ve definitely been […]

Recipe: Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

Autumn is here in full force in the Netherlands! This is my absolute favourite time of the year: that small window of the year when the leaves turn yellow and red and everything looks like something out of a storybook. I love it so much and it’s definitely something that’s bringing me a lot of […]

Reading The Lord of the Rings for the First Time

For the longest time, ‘reading The Lord of the Rings‘ was one of those things on my bucket list that I definitely intended to do at some point – but definitely not in the near future. It was intimidating and seemed like it would take up a lot of time (true), so I just put it […]

Recipe: Lemon Curd Layer Cake

Last week, when I posted my lemon curd recipe, I already mentioned I’d be posting the recipe for a lemon curd cake soon – and here it is! I made this cake for my birthday a week and a half ago and I can honestly say that it’s one of the best cakes I’ve ever […]

Mini Reviews: September 2020 (Becca’s Bookoplathon)

I don’t want to start this post with a huge cliché, but doesn’t time go fast?! We’re already halfway through October and I still have to write up my September mini reviews.

Lemon curd is one of my favourite fillings or spreads for pretty much everything – scones, macarons, cakes, croissants. […]

Mini Reviews: August 2020

August was a bit of a weird reading month for me. Even though I did end up reading five books, I was in a mild reading slump for most of the month. I’m still not entirely sure what caused it, but I think not having a set TBR might have had something to do with […]

Reading Vlog: Finishing The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

As part of Becca’s Bookoplathon, a 24-hour readathon took place yesterday and I decided to join and vlog for the day! I did lots of reading (of course) and managed to finish The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I give you my full (spoiler-free) thoughts in this vlog. I also go for […]

Recipe: Cinnamon Pecan Chocolate Brownies

September is upon us and I don’t know about you, but I’m fully ready for autumn! Summer has never been my favourite season and now that they’re getting hotter (hello, climate change), I’m even less of a fan (no pun intended). One of the big downsides of hot summers: it’s way too hot in my […]

My September TBR – Becca’s Bookoplathon

It’s been a while, but I filmed a video again! Next month, Becca (from Becca and the Books) is running the Bookoplathon, which is a readathon based on Monopoly. Becca created a Monopoly board full of reading prompts, and you put together your TBR based on the spaces you end up on, which is of […]
