#Blogtober16 Day 21: What am I afraid of?

October 21, 2016

I thought I could write about snakes, or spiders, or ghosts, or something else that I could be afraid of. But in actual fact, if I’m being honest, what I’m really afraid of is failure. I don’t cope well with it at all. At school, I always did pretty well without trying. I don’t mean to sound big-headed; in reality I was a lazy learner…

October 20, 2016

I have lived in Norwich since I was around seven years old. I briefly moved away to Kent to go to university but returned once I had graduated and can honestly say that I love living here.

Hotter Belle Boots Review

October 17, 2016

In September I attended a blogger event at Hotter Shoes, Norwich. It was a great evening, and I was lucky enough to take away a pair of Hotter Belle boots to review. Unfortunately, my size weren’t in stock on the night, so I had to order a pair. The boots would be in store the week commencing 10th October. This didn’t bother me in the…

#Blogtober16 Day 17: My favourite concert

I haven’t been to masses of concerts really. I don’t like the idea of being all squashed in a crowd.
