#BEDN: What you Left Behind – Jessica Verdi

An advanced copy of this book was kindly sent to me for review by the publishers.
This book follows super popular, football star (of course) Ryden as he navigates life with a small baby after the death of his girlfriend to cancer. So, it’s pretty heavy, though ultimately enjoyable to read.

I LOVE Lush. As someone who spends an almost obscene amount of time in the bath, I am a self confessed Lushie, and could happily talk anyone’s ear off about the many wonderful things about Lush products. So, I figured it was time for a blog!

I’ll Give you the Sun – Jandy Nelson: Review

I wasn’t sure what to read after my current run of books was going so well, so it took a little while to find, but after perusing my Goodread’s bookshelf I decided I liked the look of this one (literally judging the book by the cover!).

How my optimism has failed me…

Generally, in my everyday life, I’d like to think of myself as pretty low-maintenance. When it comes to buying gifts, for example, family and friends often remark how easy it is to buy for me. I don’t want diamonds or designer clothes, a battered old book, novelty socks or craft supplies would make me much happier!
So when it came to planning for the wedding, I figured my vision of a beautiful, outside, rustic themed ceremony was pretty low-maintenance too.

How bloody wrong I was!

Girl Online: A Review

I’ve only ever seen a few of Zoella’s vlogs and they’re fine. I don’t think I am the target audience, so she is certainly not my favourite vloggers, however as an avid fan of all Youtube culture, it was never in doubt that I would end up reading her debut novel, Girl Online. I read the whole thing in less than 12 hours, and I’m surprised to say that I didn’t hate it.

Anna and the French Kiss Review

I’ll hold my hands up and say this: Different people have been recommending this book to me since it came out, and | genuinely had zero interest in giving it a go until recently.

Spending New Years with The Bard

Sometimes, being wonderfully spontaneous and last minute, isn’t so wonderful after all. Take New Years Eve for example. We started planning a little trip away, on Boxing Day.
