A few changes.

I'm ever so sorry that I have been absent from this little blog for a while now, but I have been feeling restless and uninspired and a change of scenery was due. I'm not quite sure how to explain it, but I felt that the magic has been lost but now it has been found again and I'm ready to start writing after a little break. 

You can now find me at, I do hope you will come an join me on this new adventure. 

Love, Ellie x

The Little Prince

Beautiful words, beautiful book. Oh, how I would have loved to have met the Little Prince that is ever so in love with his rose

Love will turn the whole world into something greater than itself.

I just found this photo hiding away in the hidden depths of my photo library on my laptop, a beautiful sunset that I took on this date last year. Apparently we had a sugary, candy floss coloured sunset up in Scotland, and finding this photo was a nice reminder of all the lovely things that happened at University this time last year. I go back tomorrow after a really relaxing couple of weeks at home, and it will be good to get back into the swing of things for a final push before the Christmas holidays. I'm looking forward to the festivities of Halloween and Bonfire night, wrapping up warm in new gloves and mittens to keep me warm, sparklers and hot chocolates with cream and marshmallows. I can't wait for all the Christmas decorations to go up, and I'm even looking forward to starting my Christmas shopping, a first for me as I'm usually the most disorganised person when it comes to that kind of thing! Usually I never really look forward to going back to University after spending time at home but this time I can't wait, and it's nice to finally feel settled there (a home away from home ).

P.S. I started a little blog for all things book related, you can find it here. I hope you like it!

Aslan is on the move

Yesterday was about:
Alarms too early for a Sunday morning, lilac jeans and a cosy cream jumper (a cosy outfit for grey weather outside!), crunching through the Autumn leaves in Autumn boots, daydreaming of Narnia, a trip to Costa, a successful shopping trip, curling up on the sofa with a new book, excitement at Christmas decorations and gifts in the shops, a mince pie and a cup of tea, giggling at An Idiot Abroad, sister time, Mama's homemade Sunday dinner (the first in a very long time!), planning a party with friends, a full tummy, the latest episode of Homeland, sleepy eyes and a long, long sleep.

Today was about;
Breakfast in pyjamas, the Kardashian's on TV followed by a helping of Shrek for nostalgia, tea from a Disney mug, grey skies and drizzle, too many sneezes, blogging confusion, Topshop lusting, wild kittens in the garden, helping in the kitchen, reading and reading and reading, warm cosy blankets on the sofa, doggy cuddles, making plans, nails the colour of the midnight sky (a lazy day)

Being a Bookworm

You know that horrible feeling you get after just finishing a lovely book when you just can't seem to find anything else to read as you fear it will just be a let down? Well, that's exactly how I'm feeling now, after a long train journey home transformed me back into a bookworm. You see, I go through phases with reading; one week all I want to do is get lost in a good story, and then the next that seems to be the last thing I want to do. I'm not quite sure why it happens, but now that I'm home for a week or so I'm fully embracing my desire to read as many books as I can get my hands on. I just finished off Delirium by Lauren Oliver, a magical book that had me close to tears on a few occasions! You really must read it if you ever get the chance, and I'm looking forward to picking up the next one when I visit the bookstore. For now I have been dipping into a few new purchases, a book full of fairytales and a book full of stars, perfect to read curled up in bed with a cup of tea. I am on the lookout for a few new books to see me through the rubbish weather though, so if you have any recommendations please let me know! I feel a trip to Waterstones coming on very soon...

I'm ever so sorry that I haven't been writing much as of late, but the University work load has finally hit and I've recently been finding myself drowning in books and papers and essays and things, far too much to fit in to the very few hours we are given in a day. I've also started volunteering at my local Oxfam store, something I've been wanting to do for a while as it's such a worthwhile cause but simply never got around to doing it. I've met some lovely people so I'm so happy that I did! Another reason for my absence is I'm getting a bit stuck on what to write about. If you have any ideas, or if you'd like to see any particular posts, please let me know and I'll try to get it up as soon as possible! Anyways, I just thought I'd check in, and show you a snap of my new favourite hat - who doesn't love ridiculous animal ears?! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend
P.S I have a new little project... take a peek here!

Fantastic Mr. Fox

It's getting colder here, much colder, especially on dark mornings where the sleep still fills our eyes as we wrap up in new coats and new boots to guard us from the blustery winds on the way to the bus stop. It's October now, and that brings with it lovely Halloween festivities, pumpkins and toffee apples in our shopping baskets and scary movies on the tv. If you're not a fan of scary films, I suggest you enter the magical world of Roald Dahl and watch Fantastic Mr. Fox instead, all curled up on the sofa with a blanket and a hot chocolate with lots of cream (this is what I did last night!). The animation is magical ♥

I bought a book from Waterstones yesterday and this was the quote I found on the carrier bag! A lovely idea, wise words from a favourite 

P.S. I made a new Tumblr for lovely photos and general ramblings, you can now find me here.
