I originally started this blog in December 2017 with the focus on cruelty-free, vegan beauty and skincare, and then thought about changing the focus to mental-health. ¬†However, I needed to take some time out to get myself better which I did and now I’m back!

It’s now September 2018 and I’ve decided that my blog will take on a new focus around something else I love. ¬†There are many other bloggers out there that cover cruelty-free and vegan products, and although I’m still extremely passionate about this I have very sensitive skin and trialling lots of different products sadly doesn’t work for me (not enough to keep up with a blog anyway).

I’ve recently had a few stints in hospital (complications from a minor op) and have rediscovered my love of reading. ¬†It’s always been there…..I was one of the top readers in Primary School and I’ve always loved immersing myself in a story. ¬†I used to spend my weekends in the local library when I was kid, borrowing as many books as possible and dreaming of being a librarian! ¬†Sadly, I’ve found with working and studying that I just don’t give myself the time anymore though.

Having re-read most of the Harry Potter books and a number of other fictional books over the last month I’ve realised how much I truly love curling up with a good book and have realised that it’s important for my own self-care to give myself time to relax and let go. ¬†So I’m promising myself from now that I will, at the VERY least, read a chapter a night. ¬†I’m planning on using the blog to review books and maybe post other bits to do with my life so hope you enjoy!
