If We Were Having Coffee… [1]

If We Were Having Coffee… [1]

Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner has been doing a series called “If We Were Having Coffee”  for some time now, as have many other bloggers, to talk about life behind the blog and books.  I thought I’d give it a shot! If we were having coffee… I certainly wouldn’t be drinking coffee!  I used to love it when I was little and my nonna would give it to me ALL THE TIME, but I can’t stand it now.  I reckon I had an overload when I was younger or something!  I’m such a strange Italian (I also don’t like olives, but that’s another story).  Give me an almond milk hot chocolate or an English Breakfast tea, and I’ll be your girl […]

Monthly Recap | January 2016

Monthly Recap | January 2016

Life: I can’t believe that it’s already February!  Where does the time go?  Already a month down in 2016, it’s time to take a look at what I did in January. Not a particularly jam-packed month for me, I spent most of January working my arse off.  When most of the country was taking leave, I worked all the way through the Christmas/New Year period, only having the public holidays off.  I rang in the New Year at a barbeque at a friend’s house, which was fun.  Australia Day (January 26) was spent down on the Mornington Peninsula at a winery and dairy, which were amazing. I discovered Classpass, which is my newest addiction.  Classpass has long been available in […]

I’ve been a very bad blogger…

I’ve been a very bad blogger…

Hello!  Remember me?  *waves sheepishly* I don’t know where the year’s gone.  Honestly, I feel like it was only yesterday that it was Christmas and here we are in the lead up to Christmas once more.  So where have I been? This year has not been a great year for me, blogging wise – personally, it’s been a fantastic year!  But it’s been my personal life which seems to have had the most impact on my ability to blog and I have to be honest, I’m not entirely happy about that. It started when my cousin arrived from Italy a little over 12 months ago, staying for two months.  She stayed with my parents in Melbourne, and at the time […]

So I kinda disappeared…

Hello!  Remember me?  I’m that blogger who dropped off the face of the earth about a month ago, and before that I’d hardly posted for the previous two months.  Not only have I not been blogging, I haven’t read another blog in months and my comments have been non-existent…  Yep, that’s right, I’m that slackarse blogger! Don’t worry, I’m not apologising for not being around, mostly because I don’t believe in that.  This is my hobby, not my job, and I’ve come to realise that sometimes things just get in the way and there’s not a lot I can do about it.  What I’d like to do, if that’s ok with you, is share what’s been going on with me […]

Life of a Blogger {15}: Routines

Life of a Blogger {15}: Routines

Life of a Blogger is a weekly bookish meme hosted by the lovely Jessi of Novel Heartbeat, shining the spotlight on bloggers on a more personal level 🙂 Every week she chooses a topic and shares about her life, encouraging other bloggers to do the same.  Today’s topic is Routines.  I haven’t done one of these since New Years, so I’m really looking forward to it! So, I am very much a creature of habit and have been all my life.  When I was younger, it was get up, shower, eat breakfast, go to school, come home, do homework, watch TV, go to bed.  There was some variation, but that was generally the crux of my weekday.  The weekends were […]

Sunday Funday: Week In Review {8}

Sunday Funday: Week In Review {8}

Sunday Funday is a post created by the wonderful Cristina of Girl in the Pages, as a way of recapping the bookish and not-so-bookish goings on of the past week.  So here we go! January 18 – February 8 Life: Hiya!  So, I think I’m finally back on track, with EVERYTHING – blogging, reading, work, exercise, and my personal life… And not a minute to soon, I was going CRAZY with all the things I had going on, and the blog definitely suffered.  Well, here’s hoping that doesn’t happen again 🙂 This week has been pretty chilled, I haven’t been doing all that much.  I finally had a weekend where I didn’t go anywhere, that hasn’t happened since mid-November 2014, […]

#HarryPotterBookNight: My Journey as a Potterhead!

#HarryPotterBookNight: My Journey as a Potterhead!

On this wonderful night, this Harry Potter Book Night I have decided to share with you how it came to be that I became a Potterhead.  Believe it or not, once upon a time I did not like Harry Potter.  This was, of course, before I’d even read it.  That’s right, I didn’t like Harry Potter but I hadn’t even read it!  Because this what a sane person does, innit?! It was the year 2000 when I first heard about HP.  I was in year 7, my first year at high school, and I had a penchant for hating things I’d never really tried.  Mostly foods; fresh tomatoes and beetroot were high up on my list, both of which are […]

Sunday Funday: Week In Review {7}

Sunday Funday is a post created by the wonderful Cristina of Girl in the Pages, as a way of recapping the bookish and not-so-bookish goings on of the past week.  So here we go! January 5 – January 18 Life: Boy oh boy am I in a slump right now!  I”ve been so busy with work and when I get home the last thing I want to do is get on my computer and blog… And then last weekend I was in Sydney for a whirlwind visit, it’s been so crazy.  I’m going away this week and won’t have computer access to blog, so there will be another week without any posts, but after that it’ll be back to normal […]

Sunday Funday: Week In Review {6}

Sunday Funday is a post created by the wonderful Cristina of Girl in the Pages, as a way of recapping the bookish and not-so-bookish goings on of the past week.  So here we go! December 15 – January 4 Life: Wowee, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these!  Three weeks to be exact, and what a three weeks it’s been 😀 I had a hectic week of work followed by two weeks of leave, which has all gone far too quickly.  I can’t believe I have to go back to work tomorrow!  At least it’s only for two weeks, and then I’ll have another week of leave when the Australian Open starts. So what have I been […]

Life of a Blogger {14}: New Years!

Life of a Blogger {14}: New Years!

Life of a Blogger is a weekly bookish meme hosted by the lovely Jessi of Novel Heartbeat, shining the spotlight on bloggers on a more personal level 🙂 Every week she chooses a topic and shares about her life, encouraging other bloggers to do the same.  Today’s topic is a Freebie, so I’ve chosen an oldie from earlier this year: New Years! I never really seem to have any set plans for New Year’s Eve, I generally go with the flow with whatever’s happening at the time.  When I was growing up it was always spent with my family and their friends, and as I got older I started spending it with my friends. When I was at university, my […]
