five blogs I adore



In an attempt to get myself back into blogging I've been visiting some blogs I absolutely adore, and today I'm sharing them. I don't always comment as much as I wish I did, to but these blogs give me so much inspiration and I'm always excited to read their posts, new and old. If you're looking for some new and exciting blogs to read, here are five I strongly and passionately recommend.

Little White Socks
Aycan is like my blog sister, we blog about really similar things and have a ton of similar interests. Little White Socks is full of colour, inspiration, and absolutely amazing and original content, from books to vegan baking to DIY! Make sure you stick around for Aycan's upcoming blogmas posts, I've been given inside info and it's going to be absolutely amazing!!

Marzia's Life
Marzia's life is such a lovely and relaxing blog to read. Her blog is almost an extension of her YouTube channel but with more personal touches. Marzia incorporates all the cuteness and creativity found on her YouTube channel, but much more personal which is always lovely to read.

Witch Cake
Enchanting is the first word than comes to mind when I think of Witch Cake. Witch Cake focuses on feminism, sexuality, and magic and is one of the most intriguing blogs I have read. Holly’s writing is so honest and clear yet magical and enchanting at the same time.

Catitude and Co.
All about feminism, sex, periods, veganism and I adore it. Tara writes so honestly on topics that aren't discussed honestly enough.  Her latest post about vegan footwear is amazing, be sure to check it out. I have lots of respect and admiration for Tara and her blog so definitely check it out.

Love from Berlin
I've been reading LFB for years and have seen it evolve into a  a girl run online magazine curated by Rae. LFB focuses on lifestyle, thoughts, style and a range of interesting opinions from a diverse range of contributors. There is always something super interesting and unique to find with every issue, not to mention the whole aesthetic is stunning. LFB remains one of my firm favourites!

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy!

Let me know if you read any of these blogs, or leave a comment about the blogs you adore! I'm always looking for more!

what's been going on in the rosarioverse?


Hi.

I still exist.and Rosarioverse still breathes, despite being dormant for three months.

Just been a bit busy, tired and lacking inspiration but I'm back with some new ideas and determination to resurrect my blog. I've been a bit busy with life, tiredness, and lacking a bit of inspiration while adjusting to some life changes.


Joined the gym



Where I apparently spend a lot of time flexing in the changing rooms and taking selfies.

I’ve been health concious for a few years but this year I decided to take the plunge and acutally join the gym. I want to grow my muscles and get some strength, especially in my arms. Seeing gains and building up muscle makes me feel super good and accomplished, and it's a good for my health, a win-win situation.. I’m not sure how to describe the feeling the gym gives me, a sense of achievement perhaps and it makes me feel good mentally and physically. I just love it, and I never thought I'd be someone to enjoy working out haha.

Got a new full time job



Which consumes most of my time. I'm either at work and working hard, or commuting to work for at least an hour and a half each day. I forgot how much time commuting takes of your day. I've also discovered that damn, sitting at a desk for the best part of the day can be super exhausting. Working in London is good fun though, there's so much good food around and lots of interesting things to see, I feel super lucky even though my days are long!


Other stuff

Obsessed with the new Neck deep album. 

Discovered Grimes properly. Realised artangels is a masterpiece we have been blessed with.

Um Brand New released an album and I didn't know anything about it for a whole month. I am catching up slowly.

New front bottoms song and tour announced. It's damn good.

Got obsessed with Dorayaki's from Wasabi. It's heaven wrapped up in a pancake shaped package. 

Ate a lot of Pad Thai, so good.

Life has been a little something like sleep, eat, work, gym, attempt at a social life and then repeat.
So I've pretty much just been super tired, at the gym or working. I'm not quite used to my new routine just yet but I'll get there, even in have to draft on the train using my phone!

But I am officially back with some ideas I am determined to fit around my job, gym, and life.

Rosario out.

small youtubers I love


I love supporting amazing internet creators, especially when they are amazing but don't have the volume of support they truly deserve. I love the accessibility of youtube and I love small creators so I decided to compile a small list of some small youtuber recommendations! And by small I mean youtubers with like under 30k subscribers. They are the underappreciated creators I admire profusely and always get excited for their new videos. Hope you check them all out and maybe even find a new favourite!

making my own vegan hot cross buns

vegan hot cross bun
It will surely come as no surprise that I love hot cross buns. Having tried and sampled many over the seasonal months, I decided to have a go at making my own. Couldn't be too hard right?!

'An attempt was made' can summarise the experience.

a trip to the harry potter studio tour london


Obligatory nine and three quarters photo. 

So, last month I finally visited the Harry Potter Studio Tour! The tour was a little expensive at £39.99 per person (depending on what expensive is to you) but this was luckily a belated birthday present, and one I had been looking forward to for nearly two months!

6 interesting hot cross bun recipes


~ Hot Cross Bun Chronicles Part 5 ~

My love for hot cross buns seems to be for life, not just for Easter. It's no surprise that I love hot cross buns. I've seen so many different flavour combinations in shops, and even tried a few, but they never seem to live up to my expectations (M&S I'm looking at you) So I've been collecting some interesting and intriguing hot cross bun recipes from creative bakers of the internet, and rounded up a few that seem particularly mouth watering.
