My sister summed it up when she said 'Spending time in a beautiful place for a sad reason is complicated' Feeling grateful to have woken up to these stunning views in Wales even under the circumstances. #inspiremyinstagram #beautifulplaces #wales #mountainscape #morningview #breathtaking #feelinginspired #welshviews #barmouth #barmouthbeach #littlebitsof_life #rejuvenate #restmymind #positivevibes #bookstagram #liveauthentic #seekinspirecreate #seekthesimplicity #travelgram #seetheworld #visituk #greatbritain

I'm starting to sense a theme! I have always been drawn to reading books by forgotten female authors. Ever since I studied 18th Century Women's Literature at university it's been a bit of a passion project of mine to collect any book I can find on the topic! These are the latest additions to my girl gang shelf πŸ˜‚ #bookstagram #booksbywomen #womemread #forgottenbooks #femaleauthors #womenwriters #viragopress #notjustjane #janeausten #readingisfun #readwhatyoulove #bookhaul #bookishpost #bibliophile #bookworm #readwhatyoulove #littlebitsof_life #liveauthentic #outsiders #forgottenauthors #readingclub #bookphoto #dowhatyoulove #booksilove

This weekend has been so lovely. Whiling away hours in cafes with a good book and strong coffee. Watching The Pianist for the first time (😒) Trying out Korean food and baking my favourite chocolate chip muffins! All finished off with a nice cup of tea and a vinyl record playing in the background. Just perfect! #weekendchill #vinylrecords #baking #booksandcoffee #koreanfood #happyday #theendoftherainbow #weekendadventures #littlebitsof_life #liveauthentic #flashesofdelight #belfast #rainbow #greenhills #irelandgram #visitireland #northernireland #folkgood #seekinspirecreate #positivevibes #bookstagram #seethegood #lovewhereyoulive #filmclub #bookclub #dowhatyoulove #domoreofwhatmakesyouhappy

Woke up early today by accident. So I decided to head to my favourite cafe and get breakfast as a weekend treat. I am slowly getting addicted to this book. I never thought I would read The Odyssey. I assumed it would be hard, dull and not worth my time. But after a bit of insistent recommendation from my friend I decided to give it a go. Totally eating my words, it's brilliant so far! Have you ever had a total change of heart when it comes to a book or genre? #booksandcoffee #weekendreading #theodyssey #homer #classics #newgenre #newbook #bookclub #weekendchill #saturdayreads #slowweekend #positivevibes #startthedayright #littlebitsof_life #readwhatyoulove #readmore #bookblogger #belfast #restored #intentionalliving #bibliophile #bookishlove #bookworm #penguinclassics #oldbooks

I think about this blue window in Girona a lot. Who lives there? In a house with a window straight out of a painting. If I had a 'happy place' I am pretty sure it would come with a window just like this. I hope your Tuesday is as lovely as this blue window makes me feel. #tuesdaythoughts #bluewindow #lifeisart #lifemovesfast #happyplace #calminthechaos #vangogh #girona #spain #gironafoto #visitspain #catalunya #theworldthroughmyeyes #liveauthentic #flashesofdelight #littlebitsof_life #positivevibes #everydayoriginal #spanishlife #feelgoodphoto #travelgram #travelphotography #wanderfolk #seekthesimplicity #calmplace

This book is brilliant. I love Mary Beard talking about history but I will be honest, I didn't know what to expect from this. This book looks at how women's voices have been heard (or not) since the ancient times. I loved Mary's approach, using her expertise in history to build a compelling argument for what needs to change. #bookstagram #shelfie #whatimreading #lunchtimereading #marybeard #womenandpower #bookish #readingclub #bookphotography #littlebitsof_life #feminism #feministbooks #womenshistory #readwhatyoulove #readmore #readwomen #goodbooks #bookrecommendation #bookblogger #liveauthentic #flashesofdelight #bookshelf #bookbloggers

Here's one to brighten up a winter day! Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The red tiled roofs set against the azure sky is like something out of a fairytale. I certainly felt that way when I was wandering around the old town. I guess it's no surprise it ended up as a set for Game of Thrones! I wrote a little blog post about my time in Dubrovnik, have a look (link in bio) and see how easy it is totally fall in love with a place! #travelgram #dubrovnik #croatia #gameofthrones #visitcroatia #dubrovnikoldtown #dubrovnikonmymind #travelblog #travelmore #prettycity #inspiringplaces #inspiremyinstagram #flashesofdelight #littlebitsof_life #bookstagram #explorenewplaces #seetheworld #europeanadventure #lifeisbeautiful #beautifulplaces #wanderlust #travelideas #seemoredomore #travelphotography

You may remember in a previous post I was trying to pick a new book to read...Well 'Can Jane Eyre Be Happy' was the one I settled on (with a little help from @storiesandcoffee) and I am so happy, it's such a interesting read. . The book takes you through various thought provoking topics to do with Victorian literature, like Who Inherits in Heathcliffe's will?' 'Why is Fagin hanged?' and of course the title essay. The author approaches each topic with a true love for books. I genuinely think anyone with an interest in reading Classics will get a lot out of this book. #bookstagram #bookish #booksandcoffee #janeeyre #bronte200 #brontesisters #wutheringheights #oliver #dickens #bookrecommendation #bookreview #bookclub #bibliophile #booksilove #bookishlove #whatimreading #readwhatyoulove

Here's a little book haul on a rainy Saturday afternoon. I've been chatting more about my reading goals on my blog (link in profile!) If you fancy a read. I can't wait to get stuck into these, the only problem is deciding which one to read next! #bookstagram #saturdayreads #bookstack #bookhaul #newbooks #whatshouldireadnext #pileofbooks #bookish #bookishlove #bookphoto #readmore #lovetoread #weekendreading #viragopress #womenandpower #bronte #janeeyre #profilebooks #bookblogger

I am so excited to read this book! Whenever a description starts with 'forgotten female author' I am sold! Susan Ferrier outsold Jane Austen, her contemporary, in her time but then fell out of print in following centuries. I love that she's being rediscovered by @viragopress now. Shout out to @wren_jenny for getting this picture in George Street where Susan Ferrier lived for me! #bookstagram #readwomen #booksbywomen #goodbook #susanferrier #viragopress #forgottenbooks #bookish #georgestreet #edinburgh #scottishfiction #classicbooks #prettybooks #flashesofdelight #littlebitsof_life #liveauthentic #travelgram #bookclub #bibliophile #bookworm #readingisfun #readwhatyoulove #booksofinstagram #readmore #lovewhatmatters

The time between Christmas and New Year is perfect for catching up on reading don't you think? I am really enjoying this strange little book! It's not like anything else that I have read in a long time. Has anyone else read it? #bookstagram #everythingisilluminated #jonathansafranfoer #whatimreading #bookish #bookphotography #penguinbooks #bookclub #instaread #postmodern #bookphoto #flashesofdelight #liveauthentic #littlebitsof_life #readingisfun #readmore #bookrecommendation #bookworm #bibliophile #bookpic

Counting down the days until I fly home for Christmas. I can't wait to relax with my family and eat way too much food! This time last year I had just visited Bruges for the first time, which seems a suitably festive scene to fit my mood! #travelgram #festivemood #goinghomeforchristmas #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear #brugges #belgium #christmasmarket #flashesofdelight #seekthesimplicity #seetheworld #lovetotravel #prettycity #christmasfun #wanderlust #brugges #exploretheworld #travelphotography #quainttown #inbruges #liveauthentic #lifeisforliving #positivevibes #ilovebelgium #visitbelgium #belgiceturismo #bruxelles #belgique

I have been saving this book for when I needed a pick-me-up. And last week I definitely needed one of those. @sarahmorganwrites books are like hugs in paper format. Filled with friendship, love and Christmas cheer it was the perfect antidote to feeling sad. #bookstagram #happybook #sarahmorgan #moonlightovermanhattan #feelgoodbook #readmore #positivevibes #bookphotography #bookishpost #lovetoread #readwhatyoulove #newyork #whatimreading #bibliophile #bookishlove #bookworm #seekthesimplicity #liveauthentic #feelgoodphoto #booktherapy #christmasbooks #christmasbook

I got a call to say we lost you in the night, But the way I see it, that’s not right. You see, you’ll always be here, tucked up tight, In my heart, where you belong - is that alright? . . . This week has been a hard one. And I haven't had words to say until to today. Skye, you were the best dog and I will always love you.

My grandma is in town for the weekend and so we've been visiting the Titanic Museum in the snow.
