Dietland – Sarai Walker Plum is an overweight, depressed woman living in New York city doing a job she hates, on a mission to shrink her super-sized body. I bought this book on a whim, not really paying any attention to the plot line. The bright bold front cover and title indicted a light-hearted story of a women’s journey through weight loss, which is exactly the opposite of this story. […]

Asking for it – Louise O’Neill This book had me hooked from page 1. It is so unbelievably relevant. This book made me angry, upset and scared. The story is so true to real life and extremely difficult to read, the story is written in a brutally graphic way, but this is a book I believe needs to be read. Emma is the ‘it’ girl, the party girl, and after […]

Saying goodbye to flat No.2.

3 long years ago Adam and I took the decision to take a tenancy on a very own flat. It’s been 3 years of laughter, tears, lessons, tantrums, bills and friendships. I’ve learned to budget, to cook and generally how to live with another human being. My cooking repertoire now stretch’s further than beans on toast and I know how to clean the bathroom in used an hour, glamorous right?! […]

Memoirs of a Geisha – Arthur Golden Chiyo Sakamoto, along with her older sister, is sold by her father to become a geisha in the district of Gion. The book describes Chiyos life, from a first person narrative, as she becomes an apprentice geisha and the troubles she encounters in the house where she lives among many other trainee Geishas and maids. I loved the almost poetic way that way Golden wrote […]

Let’s talk about insecurities.

We’ve all got them, right? It’s easy to think not. It’s so easy to see that girl on Instagram; it could be a fitspo, a celeb or your fella’s skanky ex-girlfriend, and you think that their life is perfect. Sometimes we hate our hair, our legs, and our belly’s. We hate our nails, makeup and clothes. But sometimes, we love our bodies. We look in the mirror and feel fab. […]

Behind Closed Doors – B A Paris I want to start by saying this was the book I’ve most enjoyed in absolutely ages. I was immediately drawn to this book as any thriller is right up my street, especially one with a bit of a twisted story. This book had a very ‘Gone Girl’ feel about it, but in my opinion was much more gripping. The protagonist Grace, and her […]

Fitbit Charge 2.

I’m going to assume that everyone now either has a Fitbit or has seen them plastered everywhere. So a little while back I decided my time had come to invest. I really wanted to wear the watch for a while before posting up a review to ensure it was as honest and thorough as could be. I opted for the Fitbit Charge 2 with black strap as I wanted the most […]

Why it’s OK to settle down young.

Is there a stigma around ‘Settling Down’? So I want to start this one by saying I’ve never been on tinder. I’ve never accepted a drink from that guy at the bar – and I’ve never snogged a random. I’ve never flirted with work colleagues and most definitely never woken up next to a guy I barely know. To some, this is totally boring. I have plenty of friends whose […]

How I saved enough money to travel the world.

It’s no secret I used to be the worst with money. I would fritter money away like it was nothing, then still 3 weeks away from pay day I would living off my last £15 and running on the last drags of petrol. When Adam and I decided we were going to go travelling, I had to seriously make-over the way I was spending my money. This started with biting […]

4 Months Veggie.

So turning vegetarian is something I’ve been considering for months, if not years. But 4 months ago I finally took the plunge and decided it was time to stick a label on it, so I announced I had gone vegetarian. Now, I wasn’t a massive meat eater anyway so cutting meat out of my diet has not been difficult at all. However anyone thinking of making the transition please be […]
