March Wishlist | Fashion

March 20, 2017

I don't really have a perfected style when it comes to fashion, but there are definitely things which I know I like. I thought I would share some pieces which I have seen and liked this month and might buy (probably not though because I don't have cash, lol)



Birthday

My 2017 Birthday Wishlist

March 11, 2017

So, if you didn't know my birthday is on the Sixteenth of April and I am SO excited. Today I am sharing my birthday wishlist, and most years I have shared what I want for my birthday on my blog, as I have found that it also helps a lot of people get ideas for what they can ask for when it is their birthday. The majority of this list has repeated itself from previous years, and not everything is brand specific because it is easier that way.

Disclaimer: Because I get a lot of people asking me what I want for my birthday each year I make a list. I am not trying to "beg" people to buy me things and I am grateful for everything that I get. I'm not spoiled but I am blessed to have people in my life who care about me and are willing to get me these things and even if it isn't on this list and I get it or I get nothing from them, I am still extremely grateful that they are around to celebrate and/or wish me a good birthday.

5 things you (probably) don't know about me!

March 05, 2017

I really love chatting with you all and hope that you've been having a good day so far! Today I am talking about myself and some fun and kind of random facts that you might not know about me yet.

1. I am obsessed with birthdays

Most people assume that when I say this I only mean that I like my birthday. Nope. I remember my teachers birthdays, my friend's and my relative's birthday pretty well. Also the idea of turning one year older is so exciting to me, little bit scary for some people but those same people love it when they get a birthday card from me, so who's complaining ;D

2. I have a huge notebook collection

I love notebooks so much and own WAY TOO MANY.  I do plan on doing a little collection post on all of my notebooks because I have around 20 unused ones. I won't give any away though. There are mine. All mine.

3. I am the "motherly one" out of all my friends

I am in a brilliant group of friends and if you met us and hung out with all of us, you would definitely know that I am the motherly one, otherwise known as the Monica (if you get that friends reference then you a goals). I am just very responsible out of all of us, I think that I give good advice too, and am a little old-fashioned. 

4. When I am older, I want to be a polyglot

Polyglot: a person who knows and is able to use several languages.
My mum and sister are both bilingual, but my Dad is actually a polyglot because he can speak a lot of languages. I love languages and I am really interesting in learning more, currently I learn French and German, so hopefully one day I will be fluent!

5. I prefer sweets over chocolate

I really like sweets but I don't really like chocolate as much... people get pretty shocked when I say this but I do eat some chocolate, in particular the George's Marvellous Medicine popping candy chocolate, twix bars and maltesers, because they are delicious...

February Reading Wrap Up | Books

March 02, 2017

So it is the second month of the year and I am back with my wrap up! To see last months wrap up, click here (opens in new tab)


I won't lie to you, February was a slower month than I had originally anticipated. I was really looking forward to this month because I knew that I had half term and that I was going to be able to have a lot more free time to read and write and do things that I wasn't able to do all of the time.
Unfortunately, I think that I (grossly) overestimated the amount of free time that I was going to have, as I spent a lot of timing hanging out with friends, revising and organizing myself.
I did get a few books read and am ahead of my yearly target, so I am still pretty proud with what I have read!
Also, I didn't get many (any) reviews up last month, but they will be done this month! I have a couple already written and on Goodreads so they will be up very soon, hopefully!

A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstorm

Read from the 1/2-9/2
Rated 3.75/5
Picked this up as an arc at the beginning of the month. Sort of went into it blind, as I didn't really remember the plot of it but I had heard good things about the author and was impressed- review will be available soon. 


Saven Deliverance By Siobhan Davis

29800388
Read from the 5/2-8/2
Rated 4/5
This is the last book in the Saven Series by Siobhan Davis which I love. It is sad to see an end to all of the amazing characters but I guess it was a good end.

Close Your Eyes by Nicci Cloke

10/2-16/2
Rated 5/5
THIS BOOK WAS MAD. IT WAS AMAZING. Review to come once I officially gather my thoughts to put down on paper. 

Looking For Alaska By John Green (Audiobook)

Listened to from the 17/2-18/2
Rated 4/5
I listened to this book while I was rearranging my bedroom and really enjoyed it. This is second John Green Book that I've read, after the "Fault in Our Stars" and I definitely like Green's writing. I think that I want to read this in a physical format instead of listening to it next time.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Read from the 20/2-26/2
Rated 3.5/5 
Hmmm... Honestly, I don't know what to think. When it comes to this book, it is putting it lightly to say that I am conflicted. All thoughts will be in my review which I haven't even written yet because I don't really know what to say.



I hope that you found this short and sweet post interesting! I will see all of you soon in my next one.
