“I was the kind of child who’d always looked for fairies dancing on the grass. I wanted to believe in witches, wizards, ogres, giants and enchanted spells. I didn’t want all of the magic taken out of the world by scientific explanation” FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC, V.C. ANDREWS

I’m Samantha, a twenty-one year old Filipino-British writer and reviewer currently studying English at the University of Bristol. When I’m not babbling on about books and flitting about on trains between Swansea, Bristol and my sometimes-home of London where I work in PR, I like watching Wes Anderson movies and drinking copious amounts of red wine.

I’ve always loved books and writing since I was a toddler. Although, I’d like to think my work has improved a lot since I was four. Those stories that are buried away in boxes in the attic were cringe-worthy, except the Blue Peter badge-winning space pirate one I wrote when I was six #humblebrag, but they have played a key role in my love for literature and setting up this blog.

It’s been my little corner on the internet for over five years and I’ve now branched out into writing about all sorts like beauty, lifestyle, travel and mental health.

If you think that you have something that may suit my blog, then feel free to get in contact with me!
