It’s been a while since I read a book that got me thinking as much as this one did. I picked it up in one of my favourite bookshops – Griffin Books in Penarth – as a Saturday morning treat, after hearing plenty of great things about it. Beautiful, heart-rending and real, Trio whisked me … More Trio Review | Books
One of my other resolutions for this year is to read 30 books – I read 26 last year & I fancied a bit of a challenge – and my very first book of 2021 was one that I absolutely whizzed through. Ya know one of those books that you think about all day until you get to read it again? Yep, this is one of those.
It is, of course, The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. … More The Midnight Library Review | Books
Well gang, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?
I’ve been meaning to write something up but I haven’t found five minutes to actually sit down and get a post together so apologies for neglecting you, ya lovely lot.
Anywho, I’m back with a post I’m sure you’ll appreciate – it’s my favourite things for autumn, which also happens to be my favourite season.

I think we can all agree that this year has been a weird one. For me, it’s certainly put things in perspective. I realised that time is really the most important thing we have and I wanted to make the most of the time I had at home. That started with doing something I’ve always wanted to do. … More Launching What Comes Next Coaching | News
Well, it’s been a while since I last posted on here & it’s because I’ve been working on something very exciting – more on that in my next post!
This week, I wanted to share a book with you that I absolutely loved reading. I didn’t want it to end.
That book is Ghosts by Dolly Alderton. … More Ghosts Review | Books
This week, I have another book review for you all – being on furlough really gives you a lot of time to read!
Before I dive in to it, I just wanted to say that in light of current events and inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, I want to make a concerted effort to consume more content, including books, videos and podcasts from black people and POC.

I really struggle with picking up books that are outside my comfort zone. It’s something I definitely need to do more of. I just get so sucked in by the idea of a new historical fiction or women’s fiction book that I find it hard to deviate. But I was recently invited to review a … More The Beekeeper of Aleppo | Books
As I write this, we’re currently in our seventh week of lockdown and, as I’ve been on furlough ever since (and I’m a complete & utter introvert), that time seems to have absolutely flown by. While the UK has become a little quieter and our key workers continue doing an amazing job, the rest of … More What I’ve Learned From Walking Every Day | Fitness

I adore Jojo Moyes books – I’ve read a few of them now and loved them. Her newest book, The Giver of Stars, caught my eye in my local supermarket a few months ago. The gorgeous cover stood out on the shelf and I just had to buy it. This is the first historical novel … More The Giver of Stars Review | Books
