Six Books From My Childhood

As a child, you’d generally find me with my nose in a book. I’d read anything and everything and I haven’t changed much to this day. I’ve read thousands of books over the years, and my childhood bedroom and Mum’s…

Sayonara Sugar | Why I’m Giving It Up For May

I’ve been aware that my relationship with food has been unhealthy for a long time. I’ve struggled with eating disorders in the past, and while they’re mostly under control, sugar is a serious demon for me. I, like many people,…

One Year On and Giveaway

Astonishingly, I started SpareOom a year ago today. It was born from a deeply unhappy place, providing me with a place to focus my energy and distract myself. My very first blogpost was a rather embarrassing March Favourites, with some…

Two Days | March 2017

I realised how little I talk about what I get up to on a daily basis, and on the off-chance that anyone is interested I thought I would rectify that. I quite enjoy reading about the things people get up…

Two Months Until 2017 | Goals

There are just two months left until 2017, and there’s a hell of a lot I still want to do. It’s been a very odd year for a lot of us (and by odd I mean bloody awful), what with…

Friends With Benefits | Can It Ever Really Work?

If you’d asked me that a month ago I would have said no. Or at least, I would have said not in my case. I have a habit of falling for my friends, which always seemed natural to me. They’re…

My Week In Lipsticks | October 2016

We’re now definitely in Autumn, and my makeup is also in full Autumn mode. There’s a definite change in my lipstick choices towards more oranges and berry tones, as demonstrated by this little week in lipsticks I’ve put together for…
