What I’ve Read: 2018 Edition PART 1

This seemed like a GREAT blog post idea until I sat down to start writing and couldn’t remember a single thing I’d read! As we’re now halfway through the year, casting my mind back as far as January is really bloody difficult! Therefore, this is by no means a complete list, but we can probably…

Help Yourself: My Issues With Self-Help Books

Recently I’ve found myself reading a few self-help books, almost by accident. It’s a section I’ve always stayed away from, despite probably needing guidance to help my own self on many an occasion. Don’t get me wrong, if self-help books work for you, I think that’s great. You keep reading them. There’s a real trend…

To The (Pen) Point: My #CurrentlyReading Book Reviews

I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut with my reading recently, having been slowly getting through Christopher Berry-Dee’s ‘Talking With Serial Killers’ for the best part of a month. However, as my mental health has recently taken a bit of a dip, I’m keen to leave Berry-Dee on the shelf for a while,…

Culture Catch-up – TV/Film/Books I Like Lately

I must admit that I spend the majority of my free-time either blogging or watching Netflix, when I’m not being cannon-balled by a little pug, that is. As such, the majority of things that appear here are only found on Netflix, but, to be honest, I’m sure most of you have Netflix and share my…

Poetry #1

I’m not done. You completed me, I looked down, and you defeated me, And you do not deserve another poem. Not another one, And yet here sits a ballad unwritten, Frozen and unchiselled, It is not beautiful. And we have to ignore it, we have to Breathe In these fumes as if we’re not scared…

I Tried Podcasts For the First Time!

I love books. I love music. I love listening to both audiobooks and music. I love listening to people talk. And yet, I’ve never listened to a podcast before this week.   It’s not that they’ve never appealed to me or that I have anything against them at all – I guess I’ve just always…

Cooking On A Budget – Cheap & Easy Macaroni Cheese Recipe

I don’t know whether this is even a thing but I I SWEAR I’m poorer now than when I was a student. Although I suppose being in a minimum wage job with bills the same size as my rent going out every month doesn’t help either. Anyhow, I’m not the kind of person who can…

Porrigan Talks Messiness

I’m one of those strange people who can’t abide dirtiness, but also can’t manage to keep anything tidy. Is this even a thing? Like, if I’ve dropped food, I’ll wash and clean it straight up, but I dump my unopened letters on my dining table for months on end, before wiping them all straight into…

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…
