Welcome to the first post of 2018, ladies and gents! We're a little too late in the month to talk about such things as New Year's Resolutions (I'd probably say something generic like 'eat more fruit' and 'spend more time switching off from the online world', you get the gist of things), so I thought … Continue reading Books and a spot of vintage shopping
Well I have been quiet for a fair while, haven't I? Things have been a little hectic, partly because holy shit I'm moving abroad for the first time in my life. And that kind of thing takes time, you know? Existential crises take time. Where am I off to and what's the plan? Anyway, I'm … Continue reading So…I’m moving to the UK.
Another blog post and yet another book my fellow bookwormy friends. I was re-watching Mad Men for the umpteenth time and noticed that Don Draper's lady-friend, Joy, was reading The Sound and the Fury in one of the episodes. I've wanted to read something by William Faulkner for a while, and the title of this particular work is … Continue reading #CurrentlyReading: The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner

I own roughly 350 books spread across 4 bookshelves around my house, and I have absolutely no intention of stopping until I get my own Beauty and the Beast style library. Am I asking for too much? Possibly. Will I give … Continue reading #CurrentlyReading: How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
So I've never written anything like this (i.e. thinking out loud) before, but hey - why not? I was going through some photos I took yesterday, and stopped at this one. It's nothing special, just a photo of the sea - something which we have in abundance here in Malta, a tiny island in the middle of … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts & T. S. Eliot
Happy New Year, ladies and gentlemen! Now that the festive season and all the food, parties, and self-indulgence it brings with it are fading away into your Instagram feed, we can finally sit down together for a little 2017 chat. Tea? Check. Biscuits? Also check. Alright let's get started. Anyone who knows me will tell you that … Continue reading New Year, Same Me

Say hello to a brand new series of blog posts - Lists of Love. Every month I'll be posting a little round-up of my personal favourites.
A few weeks ago I blogged about Books I Bought in Italy, mentioning that I'd review at least one of the books eventually. I decided to start off with Carlo Rovelli's Seven Brief Lessons on Physics - a short but immensely satisfying read with a beautiful cover to boot.
