Long Time No Type – Welcome Back/Magical Readathon/Life Update

So, um…hello again. It’s me, Poppy…I’ve come home…(to the blogging world.) It’s been almost a year since I wrote my last extremely half-hearted blog post (a review of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina back when it first hit netflix) and honestly? I’m scared. I’ve been telling myself for months that I do want to get…

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…

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…

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…

#14 – SPOOKTOBER Scary Book Review – Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

So I should probably start this by saying that I am not good at scary films or scary Buzzfeed articles or scary anything, in all honesty. I am what you might call a big fat wuss. But, I have always been oddly fascinated with these scary things, perhaps like a fear-fascination catch-22. You can often…

Blogtober #4 : Astrology – Am I A Proper Taurus?!

Astrology. The mystical and fantastical belief that stars can control our destinies. I must admit, it’s not something I’ve ever paid any attention to, other than occasionally reading my horoscope in magazines. But, one of my blogger gals, Shauna (link to YouTube channel here) is a strong believer in astrology, and because I think Shauna…

The Women Behind Britain’s Best Names

SO you may have read recently that they’ve just published this year’s list of most popular baby names in England & Wales (I’m not too sure why Scotland and NI have been left out) and I thought it’d be fun to have a look at some of the names for girls and investigate the people…

Skincare S.O.S – Hacks To Help Itchy Skin & Rashes

Whilst my face can handle make-up, the rest of my body certainly cannot handle other products such as most moisturisers or face scrubs/cleansers and I thought I’d write this post to let you know how I calm my skin down when it gets angry. I suffer from eczema and acute urticaria and I don’t seem…
