I love to read so much it's a bit crazy. I just want more stories, more information, more insight, more more more!

Very into my new shoes and the newish Bombay Bicycle Club record on this Monday morning.

Second hand bookshop haul. Completely chuffed with my 1965 Jonathan Cape Ransome. #womanoffewinterests
