The date today is the 18th of July 2018. An inconsequential date that is just because. But. It is three days from the 21st of July 2018. A year ago to the day that The Husband and I got married in the eyes of God. (And it's likely, knowing me, I won't be able to blog … Continue reading Over On Luxe Bride
I'm moving away from the hospitality circuit, and not through any chagrin of mine, but because I want to do other things with my life. This post is not about the other things nor why i would chose them over continuing to work on hospitality. This post is the opposite and, in fact, in better … Continue reading Goodbye to the Hotel
This post brought to you by oversearching Sherlock memes and still not finding the one I wanted. Weddings cost a lot. That goes without saying. The average UK wedding last year was £33,884 (Independent, Sept 2017), but I believe even that has gone up in the last year or so. More and more, with inflation … Continue reading Part Of The Price Is The Experience
I feel like it's definitely been a long time since I've talked about my writing, since I've talked about the time I've spent hiding away and crafting characters. To be fair, it has been a while since I've really written properly. Editing has its slowness - which is one of the reasons I have never … Continue reading In Print Again!
For the bank holiday, The Husband and I ventured forth to our next Steampunk escapade, a delightful market called Doncaster Spring bank Decadence. Now the weather is not pouring down every weekend and allowing the British to go about our leisure in less layers, the number of Steampunk events increases up to the big one: … Continue reading Spring Bank Decadence
It’s been a fabulous eight months and I do mean that in the most flamboyant of senses. In retrospect – 20/20 of course – it would have been interesting to have blogged about it, but when one works on shifts, on one’s feet all the time, and getting home when one’s time is late and … Continue reading The Hotel Experience
That annual obligatory birthday post. Well, it's my birthday today, and I spent the weekend down in Oxfordshire with some of my friends. With it being exam season, I sadly didn't get to see as many of them as would have liked to, but it was nice to have a small affair in the local village … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me!
I don’t often review makeup, but Limecrime is a company from whom I’ve had the opportunity to purchase a number of their lippies – and even some eye products too – that I feel sufficiently comfortable chatting about their products here. They were my first introduction to liquid-to-matte lipsticks and, honestly, I’ve never looked back. … Continue reading Review of Limecrime’s Plushies
On my mid-week weekend the last couple of days, The Husband and I stayed over at The Grand Hotel in York. Here’s a snapshot (literally and metaphorically) of the day out. And in. We arrived early, as I wanted to make the most out of the day walking around York. It started off spitting rain … Continue reading A GRAND STAY
They say that the moor has eyes. It is 1890, and the windswept moors hold dark secrets. Chloe Sullivan is an amateur inventor whose holiday takes a dark turn when her friend and colleague, one of the few female mechanical experts in the British Empire, is murdered. A black mechanical hound roams the moors, but … Continue reading Review of Hounds of Autumn
