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 ☺️

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
