About Me


Hello, I'm Amy and I'm 24 (almost 25...) and I started blogging in 2010. Paperbacks & Postcards is a place where I can share my loves with you, whether that be make-up, home decor, stationery, or what songs I'm loving at the moment. Over the last three years this blog has changed, it's become more eclectic and much more of an extension of my personality, I'm not just a beauty lover any more and Paperbacks & Postcards reflects that.

I work full time in a secondary school as a Teaching Assistant which is the perfect job for me, it's hard work and extremely stressful at times but so rewarding and I love it. I want to go on to be a teacher at some point but I'm still figuring out exactly which route I want to take. 

I live in the Midlands, in between Leicester and Northampton. There's not much going on here to be honest but it is only an hour away from London so it's not all bad. I live with my Nan at the moment which was only meant to be a short term situation but it's now been 3 years - I am hoping to move out with my boyfriend in early 2014 (lots of saving to do first!). I have a brother who is 21, a half sister who is almost 2, a half brother who is 1 and a half and two stepbrothers, so quite a big and eclectic family - my little sister Gracie owns my heart though the little cutie.

I started this blog as I missed writing after I left university, I just love writing. I quite like writing essays actually, little bit weird. I still enjoy sitting down and writing a blog post every day, it's a nice way to unwind. I try to get a post up every week day, but occasionally there will be times where I don't post for a little while, don't worry though I'll always come back!
