30 before 30: My Quarter-Life Bucket List

30 before 30: My Quarter-Life Bucket List

      Today I’m turning 29 and lately I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to achieve in the next year before the big 3-0. My friend Naomi actually got me thinking about this as she was the one who first mentioned her pre-30 bucket-list, but I’ve seen a few other bloggers post similar lists, most notably Shooting Stars Mag. 30 does sound a bit scary and it’s sobering to realise I’m probably about a third of the way through my life already. But ageing is certainly not the end of the world as the media would have us believe and […]

Birthday Book Giveaway Winners!

Firstly, I must apologise for the lateness of this post. I had hoped to announce the winners at the end of last month, but I was so busy that weekend that it didn’t get done. Then when I got back I had a few personal issues to deal with, so blogging slid down to a lower priority. Secondly, I’d like to thank everyone who entered the giveaway, it was lovely to read all your stories about your favourite birthdays. Thank you to my new followers and my old-faithfuls! Anyway, the winners of my Birthday Book Giveaway are: Claire Taylor– If […]

Birthday Book Giveaway!

Birthday Book Giveaway!

Hey guys, as my birthday is coming up at the end of the month I thought I’d share the love and host a giveaway. It seems like a good way to say thank you to my followers for sticking with my erratic blogging habits and leaving such nice and thoughtful comments. I don’t get paid to do book reviews or recieve any free books or swag from authors/publishers, so I’m afraid I can’t afford to offer amazing prizes like I want to. However, I managed to find some books on my shelf that I enjoyed but am unlikely to have […]

You can choose whether to enter the blogfest or the competition or both, and I decided to do both. For the blogging part, the idea is to post about something you need help with on your writing that you think other bloggers can […]
