NEW SERIES: THE F-WORD

A QUICK CHAT ABOUT THE MODERN FEMINIST MOVEMENT

It's no secret that in society today the feminist movement receives a lot of criticism. A LOT. Whenever the topic is raised a Mexican-wave of eye-rolls, sighs and disappointed stares begins. Men, women and people of every gender have heard about the modern feminist movement - it's mentioned on our screens, in our newspapers and books, slogan tees and express artworks - feminism has a voice in every aspect of our modern society. And nobody's questioning whether that's a good thing. But the constant criticism the movement gets, the degrading image of angry female feminists and dominating media spreading messages about feminazi's are all wrong. That is not feminism. I want to try my best and explain what it is and what it means to me in this new series of blog-posts all about the f-word.

HIYA 2019, NICE TO MEET YOU
feat. pictures of me in a range of sunglasses

Soooo in-case you hadn't realised 2019 is well underway now. Yup - a shiny-new year has begun and I thought I'd do a nice little ramble about my goals, hopes and changes I'm making this year.
2018 was a complete whirlwind and went by so quickly it's still kinda weirding me out that we're in 2019 - 2019 people!!! But ah well, here we are and I'm so excited about this year. There's so much planned, so many big-fancy-scary-life-moments to face and on top of all that I've decided to switch up my blog for this year too!

A Review Of My 2018 Bookish Goals

Monday, 31 December 2018


WELL THIS IS A LITTLE BIT EXCITING ISN'T IT?

Hiya everyone and welcome to an all-shiny, all-sparkly new version of Grace Louise! I know an awful lot hasn't changed, but for a shiny-new year I thought I'd shake up the look of my blog and the way my blog is going to work - but I'll talk more about that in another blog-post sometime soon! You might have also realised that in the past two months I've posted once. //Sorry.\\ With all the Christmas excitement I thought I'd take a few months of to spend time with my family, friends and just chill out after I suffered through a set of hellish mock exams (oh, also if you want me to share some of my best revision tips/advice in a post let me know in the comments :).)  Buuuuttt I'm back now and speaking of a shiny-new year, I thought I'd review the bookish goals I set myself at the end of last year.
Spoiler alert: I'm not sure I did all that well.
Whoops.

Pompeii Travel Guide

Wednesday, 14 November 2018


GUESS WHO'S BACK?
Quick warning: This is going to be a very rambly travel guide!

Hello lovely people I am officially back from my little break from blogging and I am finally on top of the mounting pile of school work and revision that needed to get done! As autumn draws to a sad close and my favourite time of year sets in *squeals* I thought I would take us all back to the summer just past and do a rambly guide of the incredible ruins of Pompeii. During the summer my family and I decided to take a trip to beautiful Italy, staying in Sorrento and Rome and getting the chance to do some incredible things, including hopping on a sweltering train and taking a day trip to the world-famous archaeological site of Pompeii. This place is certainly unlike anything else in the world and I hope you enjoy my travel guide!

GLOOMY WEATHER DOESN'T NEED TO LEAVE YOU SO GLOOMY

I can't believe October is almost over people - Halloween is officially upon us!! It's the time of year for leaf crunching, hot chocolate making and knitwear snuggling everyone! It's been a while since I've done a beauty-related post and since autumn has finally settled in, I've been using a whole load of new beauty and makeup products that I need to talk about! So I thought I'd sit down and tell you a little bit more about them.
