9 Things That I Got For Christmas That You Might Love Too

I know these posts are a bit of a hot topic at the moment and there is plenty of debate on my Twitter feed about them but I love them so fuck it, I’m posting one.

2017 | A Year In Review

I always feel a bit mournful when a year draws to a close. All the could of, should of, would of feelings start to emerge and I begin to question, what the f*ck have I done with myself in the last 12 months?

Maybe your best pal is just impossible. Or your dad. Or your boyfriend. Maybe you’ve booked a sneaky post Christmas break to Edinburgh and need things to do that don’t involved spilling all your money into Primark because whoops, that top looked nice when you popped in to shelter from the rain.*

15 Things On My ‘Currently Watching’ List

I’m a right smug duck at the moment as I’ve finished university for Christmas. My final deadline was last Friday so I’ve been mucking around for almost a week now – mostly attacking things on my currently watching list.

I’ve been doing a bit of work at the antiques, a bit of blogging, a bit of Christmas shopping, flitting between Glasgow and the Scottish Borders, catching up with people I haven’t seen in a while and, most excitingly, having one on one time with the tele box.
