10 From Instagram

Were you drawn in by my creative post title? Incredible literary stuff I know. 

Personally, Instagram is my favourtie social media tool. I'm far too lazy to keep up with Twitter trends and I only use Facebook to watch videos of puppies. Scrolling through a bunch of pretty pictures requires minimal effort and it's aesthetically pleasing to the eye... well, sometimes. I thought I would share ten of my latest posts and then if you want to follow me, that would be cool, or if not, that's cool too. You can find me at @abvsmith

For those that are wondering, the above picture was taken at Hurricane Festival in 2012 with none other than Band of Skulls. Kurt spotted them strolling through the festival and proceeded to chase them for a photograph. They were lovely and happily obliged. Emma Richardson is the raddest woman alive. 

Road Trip Games That'll Make Your Journey Awesome

It's not even spring yet and I'm already thinking about summer road trips, is anyone else with me? We are hoping to take the van to Wales in the next couple of months to stay at some camp sites and explore the national parks, particularly Brecon Beacons, recommendations are welcome! Although most of our road trips are entertained with playlists and podcasts; on occasion it's nice to kick things back old school and crack out the road trip games. Who else lived for this shit when they were younger? Damn.
Here are five of my favourite road trip games.
The ultimate warring sibling game. The rules are simple - whenever you pass by a shack or rundown house or outbuilding, you shout out, 'that's where you were born' and then laugh hysterically. You then compete with each other to find the worst place to be born at. FAMILY FUN for all.

The Return of Womanhood Wednesday

I mentioned a few weeks back that I was looking for a new series for the blog and a few people said they would prefer Womanhood Wednesday to make a come back, which I was totally thrilled about because I genuinely loved creating this series. If you're interested in where it all started, read my original post, but in a nutshell, I wanted to create a weekly space to discuss womanly issues, interesting articles, books, music and more, in an effort to celebrate our womanhood.

My plan is for this to become an open place where we can all share and input into the weekly content of Womanhood Wednesday. If you have any ideas or contributions for next week's instalment then drop me an email or comment below with your thoughts and I can include you and your idea in next weeks post!

The Get To Know Me Tag | 2017 Edit

Thank you for stopping by and clicking that follow button, I am forever grateful and will buy you pizza one day.

10 Times Leslie Knope Was Right About Everything


I'm spending my Saturday in the best possible way - in bed, with coffee, muffins and a Parks and Recreation marathon. Can life get any better?
Today's post was going to be an inspirational quote type thing for crapbag January but when I started putting it together, I realised the majority of quotes were from Leslie Knope (aka. Amy Poehler). So instead, I'm dedicating this post to Queen Leslie Knope, my favourite fictional character, closely followed by Bilbo Baggins and Rick from Rick and Morty.
Here are 10 examples of why Leslie Knope should be President of the world:-
