II. London Snapshots – Hyde Park

The second day of our trip in London involved a lovely walk in Hyde Park from Marble Arch, surrounded by a beautiful riot of autumnal colours. The air was crisp and invigorating, and the sound of leaves crunching beneath our feet was absolutely exquisite. We met with loads of squirrels along the way, some shy, […]

Autumn Book Tag

Since we’re almost halfway through October already, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to do this wonderful Autumn Book Tag created by the lovely Viktoria from Seelieknight. It encompasses everything that I love about this season. Best autumnal themed book cover? Which fictional friend group would you trust with a Ouija board? Which book setting would you […]

I cannot properly articulate how much I love this time of year. I can still remember myself getting excited over the prospect of going back to school, brimming with brand new […]

Autumn Anticipations

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” -Oscar Wilde My favourite season is finally here!

A Chill in the Air

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”  ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables October is without doubt the best month of the year. It is the epitome of the Fall season, from the weather, the food, clothes, music…you name it. Unfortunately it’s going by way too fast, and I wish I […]

Autumn TBR

I love planning. I love making lists of all the stuff that I need to do and then ticking them off…or…not doing them at all! So as expected, when it came to reading my monthly TBR, I failed miserably. I was either being over-ambitious or else I wasn’t in the mood to read those particular […]
