Christmas Favourites


Hello everyone! Since Christmas is just around the corner, I have decided to share with you all things that get me excited for Christmas and set the atmosphere in my house. This post will include things like my favourite hot drinks, Christmas movies, candles, lots!

About Me



Before you ask, no I'm not two people as the picture above probably suggests! I am just one English sixteen-year-old trying to actually do something with my life!

If you haven't already guessed: My name is Caitlin and my middle name is Lucy (hence the blog name). I've lived in the North-East of England all my life and I have only left the UK three times: Cyprus, The Dominican Republic and France. I would love to travel when I'm older, my goals being to travel to: Greece, Japan and Rome.

My dream job in life is to become an author (don't laugh, I know it's not likely!) I spend the majority of my spare time (if school gives me any, that is) writing and editing stories that I post to Wattpad. However, since being an author is unlikely, I hope to one day study at Durham University, though I'm not sure which course yet.

I started this blog in May 2015 and I kind of ditched it over Summer 2016 (oops). However, since starting school again (in my final year) my art GCSE has sort of inspired me to start again. I hope to share with you all things that I both love and hate, thoughts about life and a bunch of photographs that I take throughout my day. Thank you all for reading through this little 'about me' post and I hope that you enjoy the rest of my blog more than this rushed, quickly-updated post!

Grim Tales

A few months ago (while I was still in year 9) my school got the year 9 pupils to write our own version of a Grim Tale that had to be less than 100 words and, surprisingly, mine was one of those chosen to be in a book! I was so happy (even though just about everyone's was probably chosen) because I love writing and I always have since I was 10 years old when I decided that I wanted to be an author. It's not likely to happen but I can always try!
Here is my story...

A Bad Fortune



I fumbled around with the plastic chopsticks as I attempted to eat my food. Eventually, a single
noodle was wedged between the two sticks. I lifted it high, dropped it and caught it in my mouth; half of it sticking to my cheek in the process.

Autumn Escape


In an orange-painted forest, a girl walked along the pathway, her leather boots crunching the leaves beneath her feet. A breeze danced between the trees, the branches waving and cheering as it passed. When the breeze reached the girl she closed her eyes and smiled, inhaling as her dark hair - resembling the colour of the bark of the nearby pines - was gently swept back. She always liked this time of the year. The time when she could wear layer after layer of her favourite clothes, the time when she could sit inside wearing fluffy socks and drink hot chocolate, the time when she could watch movies all day and have no shame in not going outside.

Witch Finder

The other day I went shopping with my friends and decided that I wanted a new book. After sitting in WHSmith for twenty minutes scanning through the young adult section, I found:Witch Finder.

My Bucket List

1. Go to see a broadway or west end show. I've already been to see Dirty Dancing and the Lion King but I really want to see Les Miserables or Wicked!

Storytime: Freaky Blackout

Hi everyone, I'm back from my holiday and I knew what I wanted to write as soon as I got back.
So on Saturday night, my family and their friends like to go out and have a few drinks on the night and I have to go with them. At about 11:00, I asked my mum if I could walk up to my caravan since I was feeling tired. She handed me the key and I walked back.

Heavenly Brownie Recipe

This afternoon for Father's day I decided to make my wonderful dad some brownies and I thought that I would share the recipe with you all! Note: I took a picture of them but my phone shut itself down and by the time it turned back on I had already devoured the brownie :(

Lazy Sunday Essentials

Okay, so I guess we can all admit that Sunday is, in general, a 'lazy day.' The entire day usually consists of long lie-ins, unhealthy snacks, and binge-watching your favourite tv shows on netflix. And since it is Sunday tomorrow, I have decided to share with you all my lazy Sunday must-haves.
