Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures

I wanted to go over the trip we recently had where we experienced three different hotel stays, both in the UK and in the sunny glorious South of France. (This was a while ago now, but I've been busy as we well know.) I really ought to turn this into a travel blog, the amount … Continue reading Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures

Escaping Titanic

It's unassuming from the outside, but so are most escape room locations. Shrouded in mystery in the middle of Southampton - even more so with a growing rain pelting The Husband and I - Houdini's Escape Rooms are anything but unassuming. After stopping off at my mother's, we manoeuvre the trains to get to Southampton … Continue reading Escaping Titanic

Review of Limecrime’s Plushies

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

Review of Hounds of Autumn

A black mechanical hound roams the moors, but … Continue reading Review of Hounds of Autumn

Review of These Savage Bones

I’ve followed Kaitlin Hillerich at her writing tips blog Ink and Quills for a while now, so I was delighted to learn that she was releasing her debut novella (and had done as of last October – I’m just so slow when it comes to keeping up with a single book, especially on Kindle. Sorry!) I … Continue reading Review of These Savage Bones

Fauxpocalypse Reviewed by Musings From Neville’s Navel

It’s been a while and I don’t really talk about it that much, but do you remember that anthology I was part of a few years ago whose collection of stories centred on an apocalypse that ended up not happening? My friend and fellow writer/student/bookaholic, Engie of the Musings From Neville’s Navel, purchased the collection … Continue reading Fauxpocalypse Reviewed by Musings From Neville’s Navel

Review of Image and Likeness

If St. John Paul II ever summarized his Theology of the Body, it may have been when he said, “Man cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself.” But how does this sincere gift look when lived out by human beings with all their failings? What happens to our humanity when we … Continue reading Review of Image and Likeness

Review of Limecrime’s ‘Dope’

I am an avid fan of liquid lipsticks, so I was overjoyed to get a Christmas gift voucher from a friend for Limecrime makeup, just enough to try a Diamond Crusher liquid lipstick/lip topper that I've wanted to try since they came out last year. Look 5/5 Dope dazzles. I'd say 'crushed diamonds' is not … Continue reading Review of Limecrime’s ‘Dope’


For seeker Raine Benares, a demon infestation on the Isle of Mid couldn't come at a worse time. Already fighting the influence of the Saghred, a soul-stealing stone, Raine discovers she is also magically bonded to a dark mage and a white knight, two dangerous and powerful men on opposing sides. Turns out, the demons … Continue reading THE TROUBLE WITH DEMONS review
