About Me

I’m Clo, the girl behind this very purple blog, which says all you need to know about what my favourite colour is. I live in the UK, England but my soul wouldn’t call England my home. Rediscovering my love for astrology, the moon gemstones/crystals and finding a new love in tarot and oracles decks has truly been a journey.

My love of these things of course has bubbled over into my love of books and blogging, figuring out how to fuse my favourite things together into content. I have some exciting posts in the works related to Astrology and books, however my Astrology Readathon is the first project of mine to finally see the light of day. (for anyone curious my Sun sign is Scorpio, Moon sign is Capricorn and my rising/ascending sign is Leo)

Falling down the K-Pop hole in 2019, I’ve never looked back since as K-Pop now makes up most of what I listen to on a daily basis. I will listen to rock, country and acoustic music though, I tend to gravitate towards K-Pop/K-Rock now with some country/acoustic music tossed into the mix.

Ateez were the first group I fell for and were the group that yeeted me down the K-Pop hole. I fell for Stray Kids several months later in 2020. Whilst I always say I am an OT8 stan for both my ult groups, I do have 3 main biases in both group respectively. (Ateez: Mingi, Yeosang, Wooyoung and Stray Kids: Han, Felix, Lee Know)

My favourite genre to read would be Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance. I grew up watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer with my mum, which is what jumpstarted my love for anything supernatural within books, since then I would say the genre is my comfort one. However I do also read books from other genres, such as sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, poetry and the odd non-fic here and there.

Some of my favourite books are:

  • Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill (13 book series)
  • Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine (15 book series)
  • The Guild Codex books by Annette Marie (there’s multiple series set in the same world, following different main characters)
  • Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (3 books series)
  • The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco (currently I still have the last book to read but I ADORED the first book so it’s sitting here)
  • The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa (4 books in the main series)
  • Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia (standalone)
  • The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare (3 book series)

I’ve grown up with German Shepherds and adore that dog breed. Our current GSD is called Zephyrus (other names for him include but are not limited to: Zephy, Grizzwald, Grizz, Twiggle, Zepharoos, Zeph).

This is one of my favourite photos I’ve ever taken of Zephy. It turned out a lot better than I expected since he doesn’t like staying still for photos. He loves looking for frogs in our garden, you can often find him half in one of the borders, plants surrounding him as he sniffs and pokes about for frogs. He doesn’t want to hurt them, he just wants to play with a frog. No he doesn’t realise there’s a big size difference, frogs bounce around and they fascinate him. You know when he spots one, because he goes really still, with his face stuffed into the plants, tail wagging. It’s very cute to watch.

A country girl at heart, there’s nothing more calming then being surrounded by nature. Whether its woods, the ocean or watching the sunrise/sunset over the hills. In recent years I’ve grown to appreciate Spring time a lot more for all the greens and colours that come into bloom once more. My favourite season is still Winter for the cold temperatures and being able to cozy up with a blanket and cuppa. I adore taking photos of sunrises/sunsets and landscapes, aside from feeling at home surrounded by nature, I also feel at home at the coastline. This is also why my instagram features a lot of nature, books and nature are the two things that make me happy.
