Reading: my passion for it was birthed way before this blog existed and it's certainly the place I take most inspiration from.
When I was at school, words didn't come easily - English wasn't my strongest subject and story writing made my brain hurt. It frustrated me because I wanted to be good at it. Then, at around the age of 15 something switched - I was thirsty for books, desperate for the words to quench my brain with love and hope and knowledge.
It ignited something in me. When I feel sad, I read. When I feel relaxed, I read. When I feel content, I read. It's just become a part of my life, a habit. Something for me. I'll get through a book within a day and I'll instantly crave the next one - it makes me happy.
Last year, when my blog started to get a little busier I found myself having less spare time - instead of picking up a book, I'd be snapping away at outfit posts or writing my latest update; we fell out of love as it were. But recently I've realised I need to make more time for the things I love, because without reading, I wouldn't have this blog and ultimately, the two go hand in hand. It can be hard to balance my blog with other passions but we all need to take a step back sometimes and re-evaluate - blogging is my hobby, reading is my release: my passion.
Book shops are one of my favourite places in the world. The quiet, the calm, the unspoken understanding of each individual who steps inside. There's no judging here. I can spend hours, roaming the aisles, perching myself in a cosy corner and just shutting out the rest of the world for a while. This particular little haven is situated in the heart of Saffron Walden - probably one of the most perfect towns in the world. And what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon?
