Thanks To…#Coffee

Not least because coming up with new, lengthy content is hard, but also because I’ve always liked the idea of alliterative blog posts for the days of the week, I’ve come up with the concept of a ‘thankful Thursday’ where I just talk briefly about something that I like, and all the ways it makes…

August Favourites

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve written a favourites post, hasn’t it? I debated doing a ‘summer’ favourites instead, but honestly, I didn’t want to tax my brain trying to remember back to May! Also, I’ve been so dirt poor these last six months that I haven’t really been trying out new things….

An A-Z Of Good Books

RIGHT. Today is the start of a daily blogging challenge that I’ve set myself, to blog something every single day in September. Since changing my Instagram to being a more book-focussed theme, it’s felt a lot more natural to me to post pictures on my account on a semi-regular basis. However, my blogging has suffered,…

An Introduction To Porrigan Talks: I’m A Bad Person

Let me start things off by saying that this isn’t a negative post, despite the title. The truth is that we’re ALL works-in-progress and we all have qualities about ourselves that we want to work on. This blog post is here to tie-in with my new vlog series on my YouTube channel (link >here<) where…

A (Lack Of) Organisational Skills and an Old English Company Haul.

*Let’s start this off with a disclaimer, which is also a totally unsubtle brag about my first ever blogger mail, that all products reviewed in this blog post were provided free of charge, courtesy of Old English Company. That said, all views, as ever, are my own, and I wouldn’t have agreed to receive the…

2018 Favourites So Far

Due to planning my relaunch for most of February and March, there haven’t been many blog posts at all on thepoppyraptor in 2018. One post that I tend to write monthly, and enjoy writing, is my monthly favourites, so I figured, I’d just re-cap my favourites for the entirety of the year so far! There’s…

FILM REVIEW: All About Eve

  (Or Forty-Six Thoughts I Had Whilst Watching My First Black and White Movie for Fun and Not My Education)   **Spoilers ahead** 1. I’m so cultured to be watching this. Go me. 2. So, it starts with this awards ceremony, where a young, blonde actress called Eve is accepting an award, but it lowkey…

#FlashFicFriday 06/04/18

At what point does history become history? The rise of the Blogging Elite was so subtle that absolutely nobody saw it coming, and now they’re all either dead or imprisoned and I’m being commissioned to write a book on the ‘history’ of Blogging, from the same publishing house that once handed out publishing deals to…

Meet Miss Morrigan

January was one of my worst months to date in terms of my mental health, I’ve made no secret of this. I was really down, and really sad and extremely lonely. I pushed myself to make friends, and I found 2 – a girl I work with and a girl who works at my local…
