One year of Little Pav: A reflection

One year ago today, this little sphere of mine, that sits quietly somewhere amid this scarily vast, yet somewhat extraordinary, space known as the World Wide Web, was born; my blog, my brand, my baby: Little Pav. And what a year it’s been; from deriving as a creative outlet on a whim one quarantine morningContinue reading “One year of Little Pav: A reflection”

My podcast favourites: Podcasts to listen to in 2021

First thing’s first, I must admit: my favourite podcasts are the only podcasts I’ve listened to (or, at least, wanted to continue to listen to). Still, of late, I love a podcast for my commute; while I also love listening to music, I always revert to the same artists, albums and genres and, inevitably, getContinue reading “My podcast favourites: Podcasts to listen to in 2021”

“This year hasn’t been all bad”: Lessons we learnt in 2020

If you could describe 2020 in one word, what would it be? Exhausting? Disastrous? Shambolic? I think we can all agree that, for the most part, this year has been catastrophic to say the least. I don’t even have to expand for you to comprehend why; it is a truth universally acknowledged (a testament toContinue reading ““This year hasn’t been all bad”: Lessons we learnt in 2020”

My favourites on Instagram: Enhancing the Instagram experience

Instagram. Us millennials and centennials are all guilty of spending hours on end scrolling through the app, consecutively double-tapping on aesthetically pleasing images that comprise our feeds as a signal of our liking, even if we haven’t read their captions entirely. The platform is renowned for its toxicity in encouraging users – particularly young peopleContinue reading “My favourites on Instagram: Enhancing the Instagram experience”

Things I wish I’d known before starting Animal Crossing: New Horizons

I’ve always been a gamer girl. Growing up in the early noughties with an older brother by three years who has owned all the PlayStation consoles to date, and would play classics like Abe’s Odyssey, Tekken Tag and Grand Theft Auto, I always wanted to get in on the action. Likewise, I have owned manyContinue reading “Things I wish I’d known before starting Animal Crossing: New Horizons”

The annoyances of being a perfectionist in everyday life

I’m a perfectionist. I always have been. It’s just another trait of my hyper-organised self which I’ve mentioned a few times on my blog already (I even offer how-to guides for students that focus on being more organised). To a perfectionist, the slightest of errors, mistakes and mishaps that transpire on the daily can beContinue reading “The annoyances of being a perfectionist in everyday life”

Running out of ideas for your next virtual pub quiz? Here’s some inspiration

The virtual pub quiz has seemingly taken the world by storm amid the coronavirus pandemic. As families and friends across the globe have gone weeks — even months — without seeing each other to help to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many have turned to hosting and/or engaging in virtual pub quizzes over the likesContinue reading “Running out of ideas for your next virtual pub quiz?

Living with someone with a chronic illness: A World IBD Day tribute

This summer will mark four years since my fiancé Daniel and I started living together. I absolutely wouldn’t have it any other way; I love waking up to him every morning and going to sleep beside him every night, especially after a long, hard-working day. Nonetheless, it’s safe to say we haven’t always had itContinue reading “Living with someone with a chronic illness: A World IBD Day tribute”

The pros and cons of being short in everyday life

To me, being (very) short is a large part of my identity. More often than not, my height is the first thing people notice about me. At school, however, I was almost made to feel like it was problematic; the observation “you’re so short!” was made daily (that’s right: every single day for five wholeContinue reading “The pros and cons of being short in everyday life”

This blog post doesn’t really have a title…

Except that it does, but it’s not a “proper” title. I guess my point is that this blog doesn’t have a specific theme; as my first blog post, it’s an introduction to myself, my blog and a smattering of other nonsense fused into one. If you’re reading this, you probably came across a post thatContinue reading “This blog post doesn’t really have a title…”
