5 Things To Try In Autumn

Bath Body Works Candle Dupe

Like many, I adore Autumn. There’s some slightly intoxicating about being snuggled up under a throw with a hot drink, watching a feel good movie or relaxing with a great book! This year, I’m planning to attempt a few new hobbies, as well as finding some new TV series to watch. If you’ve got some spare time this Autumn, here’s a bit of inspiration for you.

Bath & Body Works Candle Dupe

I’ve never really been one for candles, and its very difficult when you have a cat who just wants to get her paws on everything, but I like having them lit when I go and stay at my boyfriends. I spied this Bath and Body Works dupe over on The Sunday Girl and its a lil’ bargain at £2.99. They had several scents at my local B&M but being a lover of sweet fragrances, I settled on the Brown Sugar AllSpice candle. It smells incredible and I can’t wait to light it. If you’re a fan of more spicy scents, you’ll like Marshmellow Fireside or Radiant Red Maple.

Treat Yo’self to Home Furnishings

I love buying home furnishings or anything home related. Primark, H&M and Sainsburys are my current favourite store and I’ve found a few bargains recently, including this cute bowl at £2.50.

Bake Some Yummy Food

My aim this year, and there’s only three months left so I better start soon, is to start baking/cooking. I’ve just bought a slow cooker so I’m sure I can whip up something hearty and nutritious, but I also want to attempt a few cupcakes. I’m thinking of maybe making a few Halloween themed treats and seeing how it goes!

Find New Reads

Apart from Girl on the Train, I’ve barely read any novels this year, so Autumn is the perfect time to start searching for new books. On my wishlist are Becoming, The Good Girl and The Wonder. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Watch a New Series

I’m hopeless at watching tv shows because I get bored so easily. I still haven’t finished Breaking Bad, but I’m gonna up my TV game and find some new shows for me and boyfriend to watch. We enjoyed Stranger Things and Him and Her, but Netflix is a struggle so if you have any recommendations I’d love to know!

If You’re Considering A Freelance Writing Career


During my little hiatus on this platform, I was busy beavering away on my other blog, Diary of a Freelancer. Unlike this site, Diary of a Freelancer is based around how to get started as a writer, building an online business and making a consistent income from your work.

After blogging for over 4 years (Yup, I missed my blogs birthday!) I’m now a full time copywriter, and one of the main questions I get asked is how I started freelance writing without beginning my career in a traditional way. The answer – Blogging!

I know a lot of bloggers want to become paid writers and start their own business. That’s why I’ve written an awesome 5 day email course called From Blogger to Freelancer. The best part, it’s completely FREE!

In this email course, you’ll receive 5 modules covering;

  • Using your blog content
  • Effective guest posting
  • Promoting your services
  • How to get paid work
  • Creating a portfolio

Hello Again & An Update!

Wow, it’s definitely been a while since I posted on here. So, what happened? As with everything, life got in the way, and to be honest, my heart wasn’t into blogging for a long time. Juggling a full-time job, second website, family, boyfriend and other things has meant less time for hobbies, so this blog had to take a back seat. Recently my love for blogging has been re-ignited, so after a change of platform (I’ve moved over to WordPress), a new design and a new camera, I’m finally ready to get my blog on again. I’ve got so many things to talk about! I can’t wait to get posting and share some cool things with you guys! Thanks for sticking with me!
