Small Snippet of October 2019

Singapore Breakfast by T2

Okay so you know I love my tea, so I had to share my current favourite blend! Singapore Breakfast is a beautiful and coconutty tea which is not only black tea but is a mix of both black and green tea. Based off of the Singapore kaya toast, the tea is a beautiful black tea that is so smooth to drink.

Currently the tea isn’t available in teabags, so I have been making my own and taking them to work. WhenI’m out and about in the shelves I have my little thermos of this lovely tea. I would really recommend giving this tea a try, it is quite different but everyone who I have gotten to try the blend, has loved it ☕️❤️

Small Snippet of September 2019

You might not know this but at the time of this post going up, I would have just returned from Hawaii!

I have been, until very recently, working almost seven days a week for two years and I am ready for a break! The main thing I want out of anytime off right now is just to sleep in, relax, read, and do nothing. Also a trip to Wet ‘n Wild and the Disney store would be nice 😋 I am sure I will post some pics in next months Small Snippet, so keep an eye out.


Charli by Charli XCX

It was a surreal experience listening to Charil for the first time – if only because I have never listened to a new album and already known almost every song. Since seeing Charil XCX live when she opened for Sia in Sydney, I have been a big fan and have been eagerly listening to each new release. I was so excited to see this new album and it does not disappoint!

Stand outs on the album are ‘Blame It On Your Love (feat Lizzo – who you know I love!),’ ‘Gone’ which features the amazing Christine and the Queens, and ‘1999‘ with Troye Sivan. While each song that I love is one that features Charil XCX and another singer, the solo songs are also amazing! Check out my favourite songs video clip!

Small Snippet of August 2019

August has been a busy month – one that has finished quite quickly! I hope you all enjoyed the graphic novel month which came about completely by accident.

I’m going to change things up and ask you a question this month, so feel free to check out the below poll and let me know how you’re interacting with this website. I’m going to use the results to create content thats more formatted and suited towards viewing on the screens that you use.

Quick thoughts

I’ve said this before but if you’re sick, don’t go to work 🤧I’ve been fighting off a cold for over a month now and I have sadly succumbed. I think I did pretty well considering I was surrounded by so many sick staff members at work.

Remember the key words: Don’t be a dick – Don’t go to work sick!


Update on my 2019 goals.

  • Dreamspun Beyond book – Okay so apparently ages ago I bought but never read one of these books 😧So it was a lovely surprise when I logged onto my DreamSpinner account to find that Dragon’s Hoard by M.A. Church was sitting there waiting for me to read. And may I say that I LOVED it! The book was very fun and I read it so quickly in one day. Unfortunately the book is only available as an audiobook at the moment but I would really recommend people checking out the Dreamspun Beyond series and also Dragon’s Hoard!
  • Parks and Rec -I am half way through season 6 and now my partner is as hooked as I am ❤ I’m actually surprised that I’ve never encountered any spoilers, especially in regards to election results, etc.

Small Snippet of July 2019

July is not only the half way mark for 2019 but it is also a month of big change for me.

I got a new job!

The position is permanent part-time and comes with guaranteed hours per month. As someone who has worked casually for five years and who has been looking for permanent work for eight, this is a momentous occasion.

I actually have a wage. I can make plans with my wage. I don’t have to live in fear that my contract will be cancelled early with no notice! So much of the stress and fear I have been carrying around is slowing fading away and I’m coming to terms with these things.

July has been a good month and hopefully the rest of the year will be just as good!


The Sims 4: Island Living

Okay so it has taken ages but we finally have the island paradise expansion of the The Sims. I say finally because the Seasons and Island Living expansions are my absolute favourites. If I only had to chose two they would be it!

The Sims 4: Island Living does not disappoint, it is beautiful, fun to play, and I doubt I will return to the other town areas 😋 Why would I leave paradise? The added game play and careers are really engaging and I was so exited to see a lesbian couple and the first non-binary character included in the area.

Honestly, look at the below picture, how could you not want to play this expansion?

Mash of the Titans VIII (2019)

A new Mash of the Titans has dropped and I am loving it. You may remember me loving the 7th album, and when I found out the release date of the 8th I was so excited! I am pleased to let you know, the 8th is amazing!

I am particularly loving ‘Mama Did Something Bad,’ ‘Dividely,’ ‘Blurred Ice,’ and ‘It’s Gonna Be ME!’ All of the mashup albums are available for free, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t be out there enjoying the music ❤

Small Snippet of May 2019

When did May sneak up on us? I cannot understand how fast this year is going 😱 Next thing you’ll be telling me it’s Winter tomorrow and I that need to pull out the flannelette sheets and heaters – oh wait, a cold snap has hit and it’s already freezing ❄☃ Let it be known that I already miss summer 😭🌞


DuckTales (2017)

Omgoodnes the memories! The show has the same theme song as the original and I perked up as soon as it started. Who knew I had the lyrics and song stored in my brain?

I’m really enjoying the updated TV show. Also, David Tennant voices Scoorge so there is that and it is amazing. Also it is making me want to re-watch Darkwing Duck!

Upstart Crow

How have I only just found out about this show?!

I love Ben Elton – why is this only just coming to my attention 😥😥😥 Either way I have binged the first season of this show and absolutely love it!

Star Trek Original Series – Season One

Years ago, when my partner and I first got together we were watching Star Trek: Next Generation and each remarked how we had never seen the original series, despite being fans of the show. This conversation soon evolved to us promising ourselves that we would one day make our way through the whole series in chronological order.

Small Snippet of February 2019

I hope everyone has enjoyed the month of romance themed posts ❤ I promise next month isn’t as focused on the genre, however you’re almost always guaranteed to find a romance themed post at least once a month. So hopefully you didn’t hate it too much 😋

Captain Underpants Series by Dav Pilkey.

Okay, so I haven’t read these books since I was a kid and eagerly awaiting each new publication. It recently came to my attention that my library had the complete collection on one of our eBook apps.

So needless to say, I borrowed them all and started devouring them over the course of this month. They’re just as great as I remember, so fun, and so excellently self referential.

Small Snippet of January 2019

The first month of 2019 has been good and bad. I managed to achieve a bunch so far this year in regards to getting blog posts up and ready as well as tackling my Netgalley ARC list. However, it’s been tough at work with a staff member who I worked closely with, suddenly passing away over the holiday break.

Unfortunately I was unable to attend her funeral as there were too many staff attending for everyone to be able to go 😢 It has made returning to work very bittersweet and I have found myself at times upset and short tempted while working with the public. So just remember everyone that library staff are people too and your behaviour does affect them.

*Looking at you snooty lady who wouldn’t take no for an answer when I wouldn’t sign her granddaughter up to the library (you’re not the legal guardian and didn’t have any ID – so no you weren’t entitled to a card just because) and angry dude who lost ‘two years of work’ when the 15 minute computer turned off when the time ran out (it totally gave you repeated warnings and yelling at me solved nothing). 😓😅 Rant over.

Moving on, below are some of the things I have been interacting with and enjoying over the month 😃

Brooklyn 99 – Season 5.

Omg, Brooklyn 99 just keeps getting better! There were so many amazing moments in this season, I can’t pick a favourite buuut stand outs were:

  • Rosa coming out as bisexual – that speech by Jake while he was pretending to be Rosa coming out to her parents had me tearing up. So great to see some bisexual representation ❤
  • The wedding vows – Man, I was emotional throughout the whole season but I was in tears and sob laughing during the wedding scene. ‘Your butt. Your butt is the bomb’ was so sweet and funny and just encapsulates why I love those two as a couple.
  • That interrogation episode – If you haven’t seen it check out the episode ‘The Box.’ Such an amazing episode!
