About Me

HELLO AND WELCOME to my little corner of the world wide web. I am a lover of books (especially fantasy) and games, with a newfound interest in writing stories of my own.

This is just another avenue for me to share random tidbits about the things I enjoy and… well, life!

Dramione: the guilty pleasure keeping me sane

Believe me when I say I detested Draco Malfoy when I read the Harry Potter books, so I’d never thought about a romantic pairing between him and Hermione Granger. But when I first stumbled upon the popular Draco-Hermione fandom years ago, it took me zero effort to get sucked into it.

A life-changing week

On 2 July 2020, I became a MILF mum (though I might one day earn my MILF status yet… when the stars align).

As relieved and grateful as I am about having my healthy and adorable baby in my arms, I'm not going to pretend that life is now filled with pink hearts and cute Facebook … Read more →
