WHAT I READ || FEBRUARY READS

This year I have made a promise to myself to read more. After moving to a new house and unloading my library of books. I realised I don’t take time to read as much as I used to. I loved English at school at studied English lit at A levels which meant I read and studied an insane amount of books. However nowadays I only seem to get through the pages when on holiday. I joined Goodreads last year. As not only because you can check out new novels, and…

MUSIC MONDAYS #1

MUSIC MONDAYS #1

Good evening ladies and gentleman and welcome to the first in the series of Music Mondays. So I am sure like everyone music plays a huge part in my life.

My dad has an insane CD collection reaching over a thousand, and we are a very musical family. Therefore music runs through my veins and I like all…

We were out of town and ended up going to a random cinema. To start with I…

OH WONDER – ALL WE DO

OH WONDER – ALL WE DO

Oh Wonder are a group that game onto my radar last year. Thank you very much Soundcloud! I was recently brought back to these guys from an ITV programme. So funny how TV and adverts can affect what we listen to. So yes I was drawn back in to the spine tingling soft tones of Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West. That is why I ranked them in my January hot list! This track is the perfect chiller song. To me its feels like its been made for relaxing. With the beautiful…

JANUARY FAVOURITES

JANUARY FAVOURITES

As I generally blog about food and recipes, many of you maybe thinking who is the person behind all of this. Unlike a lot of lifestyle bloggers, I do not tend to get quiet as personal with life stories and woes. However I saw this piece done by a fellow blogger and I thought it was a lovely idea and makes a great monthly feature. I cant for the life of me remember her name, so anyone know holla me so I can shout her out! Anyways so yes this…
