One of my fave series as a teen as they were short enough to hold my shockingly short attention span.
‘Delia can’t stop reading the old diary which mysteriously appears in her locker one day. Little by little, she starts to become more like the girl whose words she reads – even having her memories and seeing the world through her eyes. A dead girl’s eyes. Soon Delia is convinced that she was the girl who wrote the diary – in a past life.’ – Goodreads
But the terror is about to come alive once more. For the girl who wrote the diary was murdered.
The Diary by Sinclair Smith has a mild fantasy-horror vibe. It’s fairly predictable but in an enjoyable way and has a few good twists near the end, which I didn’t see coming.
I love sushi but was finding it hard to get interesting, vegetarian sushi etc. delivered to East-Central Manchester, until I found Honi Sushi on Deliveroo. They are a London sushi restaurant who have now branched out, up North.
Sea Salted Edamame (they come in the pods so you bite the ends off and squeeze out the beans, a nice thing to occupy yourself with when watching trashy TV), with Spicy Sauce (one little taste made my whole head feel like a volcano!)
Avocado Roll x6
Vegetable Special Roll x 5
Strawberry Cheesecake Mochi (little, squishy balls of heaven)
This is the freshest and most creative veggie sushi I’ve eaten for a long time!
Honi Sushi has had 15% off its entire menu for a while now, which I’m glad about as I hate paying restaurant prices for takeaway (when there is also a minimum order price and delivery charge).
I also recommend Sake, 4 Ashton Rd, Droylesden, Mcr
Even if you have a vegetarian, gluten-free and/or dairy-free diet (mine is for ethical and food intolerance reasons), there are still so many things you can eat! So I thought I’d share my tiny fridge and stupidly large cupboard with you.
Top (left to right) Nairn’s Whole Grain (gf) Crackers, Momasa Lemon and Peppercorn tortilla chips, Biona Fruit Bears, Kind Dark Choc, Nuts & Sea Salt, Pulsin Brownie Peanut & Choc Chip.

Bottom Kikkoman Gluten Free Soy Sauce, Le Conserve Detla Nonna Green (vegan) Pesto, Nice and Easy Chickpea and Vegetable Curry, Garlic cloves (I prefer garlic purée in a tube lol), Tilda Microwave Mushroom Rice, Morrison’s Hot Paprika, Ground Black Pepper.
Every now and then I fancy a change from soft grunge/goth and crave some colour so I bought this gorgeous maxi from Shiva Moon on Etsy. They sell handmade, individual dresses and are lovely, helpful people.
As the weather gets cooler I’m going to style this with my trusty mini black cape/shrug and black cage-toe sandals with black socks or tights.
I’m 5’8 and the hem is just below ankle length so they are perfect for us tall girls that are used to dealing with odd/unflattering skirt lengths.
Jewellery is a mish-mash of festival and charity shop finds and presents.
This Hydrating Core Lipshine from @elfcosmetics is the best tinted lipbalm I’ve used for a very longtime.
This stick is hydrating anyway but the adorable little heart in the middle gives even more hydration.
There are a good choice of colours but seeing as we are going into Autumn I chose this burgundy, bordering on burnt-orange shade called ‘Happy’. It looks warm and naturally flattering on darker skin tones or more vibrant and vampy on paler skin tones. These Lip Shines have a good depth of colour which is easily buildable.
This can get a bit messy and don’t expect it to dry down but it’s not sticky and doesn’t have a funky smell or flavour so I love it!
