My little sister turned 18 last week (whattttt!!!!) and truth be told there is no one I prefer to spoil on their birthday. She may be a little shit but she's a little shit that means the absolute world to me. So for her 18th birthday I wanted to take her away, just the two … Continue reading Budapest is the Buda-best.
Hello all! This post is embarrassingly late but fortunately I do have multiple excuses: firstly, my boyfriend actually wanted to make his debut on my blog and write this one himself, but, alas, it is weeks later and he still hasn't got around to it - so Tom, you missed your chance! Secondly, job … Continue reading A Long Weekend in BERLIN!
Hello all - it's been a little while since I last posted, because everything has been busy busy BUSY. Two weeks ago today I handed in my dissertation, marking the end of my academic life and my time at university, and since I have finished another internship, been home to see my family, and last … Continue reading I’m Back With A Saturday in South Ken and Internship #4!

I had reading … Continue reading Sunday Strolls: The London Review Bookshop.
Welcome to another Saturday meander around London with Tom and Billie... This time along Marylebone High Street. While I spent much of my youth (can I say that yet?) exploring a lot of West and Central London, nowadays as I live further east I rarely seem to make it out of my little corner of the … Continue reading Fischer’s and Daunt Books.
My latest (and last - sigh) escape of the summer was to the beautiful city of Verona with my lovely boyfriend - it was also probably the holiday I've been most looking forward to. Tom and I had said all summer that we wanted to go away together, but didn't until a few weeks ago … Continue reading The (Other?) City of Love – Verona.
Last month I got my first real insight into the world of publishing, a complex and fast-paced environment that by no means gets the recognition it deserves. I've always loved books, but then again - most people do. What I have now is a different outlook on them, an appreciation, an acknowledgment of the work … Continue reading My time at Little, Brown.
