Immaculate vibes and food at this unassuming Italian restaurant in Bristol – where the pasta is made in house! TL;DR: It was pretty incredible.
I bought myself some gorgeous earrings for my 20th birthday – here’s what I thought!
I read (and watched) Sally Rooney’s Normal People in under 48 hours. Now, I’m not one for savouring things, even normally. Books and TV shows, though split into parts, are wholes – and I always have a niggling fear that, if I consume them too slowly, I’ll have forgotten the beginning by the time I’veContinue reading “Sex in Sally Rooney’s Normal People“
