The Day We Disappeared Review | Books

The Day We Disappeared by Lucy Robinson is a book that’s been on my shelf for about 10 million years.

I originally picked it up at a Penguin event I went to back in 2015 (that time I crammed all the free books into 2 bags!) and it’s been winking at me ever since.

I finally got around to reading it on holiday this year and I absolutely LOVED it.

Working Out with a Metal Joint | Fitness

Summer is here, it’s boiling hot and I’ve decided to join a gym & get even sweatier.

I haven’t been to the gym since I was at uni but, as with most things in my life, all it took was a friend saying ‘let’s start going to the gym together!’ for me to sign on up.

I’ve got to be honest – I was a bit nervous the first time we went. And not just because I couldn’t even work out how to use the water machine…

So much has changed in 10 years.

Ahh, spring has sprung!

It’s so wonderful being able to drive to work and return home while it’s still light – the days seem so much longer 🙂

Throughout March, I was officially moving into my flat and sorting out lots of life admin – bills, bills, bills – but I still found time to find a few favourite things along the way.

Happy Life & Health Things | News

The snow is just about beginning to melt in Wales & if 4 days inside the house has taught me something, it’s that I really should keep up with writing a blog!

It’s also taught me that eating my weight in chocolate digestives and justifying it with ‘it’s cold, I need more fat’ is not the right way to go.

Anywho, I have some good news to share with you all – woohoo!

The Other Half of Happiness Review | Books

Happy Sunday, everyone!

I’ve written another book review – hurrah! It’s one that I was meant to write 3 months ago…we’ll brush over that part.

Bonnier Zaffre – thank you very much, guys! – sent me an ARC of The Other Half of Happiness by Ayisha Malik earlier this year.

I was so excited to read it as I loved the first book in the series, Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged.
