What I'll be reading in 2017 | Lifestyle


Reading is something I would love to do more this year as it's been proven to help all sorts of things, but most importantly, a time to relax and get away from the world. Last year my job didn't really allow me to have much time other than school holidays to read, so hoping this year with a new job will allow more reading time. Of course I'll try to read more than this collection, but these are my latest buys and books I was gifted as Christmas presents. 


I treated myself to book one and two of 1Q84 in the latter part of last year (still feels weird saying that) so have only just started it. So far, I love it and it's written in a really cool way and is constantly chopping and changing the focus on the characters and storylines so really does keep you on your toes. Opening book three on Christmas day was a lovely surprise and is making me want to read the first two asap but, its a huge book so will take me ages as I'm a super slow reader....... pass the endless amount of coffee and blankets to aid this reading session.


A book I really wasn't expecting to open this Christmas was The Million Dollar Blog. I have seen this book online before, either Instagram or Twitter and have always been intrigued. There's sections inside to allow you to write your blog goals etc in so will probably have this as a ongoing this alongside my proper reading book. 


For the past few years I've received a book created by one of my fav Bloggers/YouTubers so was over the moon the be given the PixiWoo book, Face. A makeup duo that I've followed for years and years (and can remember applying for the dailymix comps over and over) and duo lovely women that have taught me a lot when it comes to make up. This is most certainly going to take pride of place next to my Lisa Eldridge Face Paint  and my Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes  books as my collection of beauty bibles. 


Of course I'll be reading Blogosphere magazine, which is a magazine for bloggers, by bloggers. Always full of interesting and advice giving articles from people you follow and respect within the industry. I always join in the Blogosphere chats on Sundays, which they share a selection of tweets from, and it's always so exciting to see your little Twitter profile picture there *giggles. It is a little dream/2017 goal of mine to get in the magazine somehow as I thoroughly enjoy and support the company since the beginning and when you really believe in something, you want to give back right?

I'd love to know what you'll be reading this year!

xoxo

    1. I find it so hard to allocate time to read. I find when I'm in the bath the best time. I know! I can't wait to read that ! xo

  4. I love reading too and Murakami books are on my to read list, so you may have just convinced me to go out and get them. There's just nothing better than a cup of hot drink, a cozy blanket and a good book (or Blogosphere mag).

    Here's a tip, Blogosphere is running their first blog awards this year and nominations open in March. You can nominate your own blog too and if you're shortlisted, your goal of getting into the magazine will be achieved ☺️

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
