Gosh, writing that title took me back to early 2000 when I’d spend my free time watching YouTubers such as Zoella and Tanya Burr filming What’s in my bag videos. How times have changed! Today I’m giving it my own, zero waste spin.

But I digress, as I said in my New Beginnings post, Conor and I have started trying to reduce the amount of single-use plastic that we use in our everyday life.

Reading has always been a huge part of my life. When I was a child reading was my escape. Its what I did before I went to bed, on the train, during downtime while were on holiday; you get the picture. It was during this time I began re-reading different books, some of which I still read today. Obviously, I have found a few favourites as I went along. So today I’m sharing my top 5 Childhood favourite books.

Last Wednesday I attended my first Cardiff Bloggers Social at The Alchemist, Cardiff. I was fairly nervous going because I’m not comfortable in new places and with new people. However, it was extremely friendly. Kacie from The Rare Welsh Bit; who organised the event, was so welcoming and immediately made me feel at ease.

It was a wonderful chance to meet other bloggers from around Cardiff. During this event, I was able to meet many different people.

Or for anyone who is particularly curious.

Why Vegetarian?

Let’s start with the burning question that’s going through everyone’s mind.

I love makeup and beauty. Check out my Top 5 Makeup Wish List for proof of this! However, I can be lazy. Most of the time I like things that are quick, easy, or just make my life that little bit simpler. This is where eyebrow tints come in! Eyebrows are one of the things I love and hate in equal measures (very much like nails, but that’s another story.) I like how they look,
