Review: Women Heroes of World War I by Kathryn J. Atwood

History is written by men. That’s a fact. Women are usually overlooked (let alone people of colour…) and one of my favourite things to read about, are women in history! When I saw that there was a whole series about amazing women during several wars, I had to get them, and today I’ll be reviewing […]

Review: Fashion in the 1940s by Jayne Shrimpton

Like I said last week, I’m really into 1940s fashion lately. So I ordered this little book to inspire me. It’s only a tiny book, about 120 pages, so I was wondering how much information could be put in such a short time, but I enjoyed it very much! This book talks about children’s, women’s […]

Review: 1940’s Hairstyles by Daniela Turudich

Review: Decline of the English Murder by George Orwell

So, I never read anything from George Orwell. Required reading isn’t a thing in the Netherlands, well depending on what level of education you do, so I never read any classics as a child/teenager, apart from Little Women. I never really wanted to read anything from Orwell, I don’t know why but I never did. […]
