I have been eyeing up the New York Times By The Book tag for quite a while now so I thought there was no time like the present to turn my attention to it. 

Pick a question, or a few, or if you're keen all of them, and leave your very own answers below as it'll give me something to peruse whilst I endure abdominal surgery recovery!  

Beautiful Book Covers Tag

As my surgery was looming, I decided to treat myself to a fair few books in August in order to stash them away ready to read during my recovery.  Because I clearly don't already own enough unread books...

Behind the Photos: Instax Edition

I've been snapping away with my Fujifilm Instax Mini camera for a fair few years now and so I thought it might be quite cool to delve into my collection and share the stories behind some of the images with you. As sometimes, the stories behind the captured moment can be just as good as the imag…
