The Teacher Training Diaries


Hey everyone! I’ve low-key abandoned this blog since starting my teacher training back in September of 2022. It was by no means my intention, but with an intensive course taking up every second of my day, it’s hard to find a tiny bit of mental capacity to sit and write something well-thought-out and actually interesting.

I’d only heard of this town for the first time this year, after seeing loads of Instagram posts about its summer book festival, so I instantly knew it had to go […]

Teen Fiction Recommendations


Hey everyone! In September I started a postgraduate teaching degree, and since I am training to be a secondary English teacher, reading teen and YA fiction comes into play here. I’ve been told I’ll need to know my stuff when it comes to book recommendations for my future students, so I thought why not get […]

Autumnal Secondhand Faves


Hey everyone! It seems that this season has been the time of buying a fair few secondhand items and honestly… I love it. Buying secondhand is not only cheaper, but better for the environment and you can find yourself with some great deals too! I’m a big fan of the platform Depop, which is a […]

End of Year Reading Goals


Hey everyone! I hope September has been treating you well, and that you’re on your way to feeling your most autumnal, spoopy self! I know I am, at least. It’s no secret that autumn is my favourite time of the year, and it’s made even better knowing that when the nights are getting a bit […]

Things to do in Bergen, Norway


Hey everyone! I recently visited Norway with my mum, sister, aunt and uncle and it was definitely a needed getaway. It was my first time in Norway, and it was great to finally see it, having visited all the other Scandinavian countries in the past. (Not including the Faroe Islands, but they’re definitely on my […]
