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…

Since I moved into the flat, I’ve been trying to get my life a tad more organised and a lot more healthy.
I’ve been meal prepping and everything – it’s like a whole new me 🙂

April 9th 2018 marked 10 years since I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 14.
When I think about it, it seems like yesterday and about 100 years ago at the same time!

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!

My heart has only just settled down enough for me to write this post!
But I had so much fun at Escape Rooms, Cardiff that it was worth all of the excitable palpitations…

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.

I have no idea what has happened this year.
Apart from the world apparently going completely mad, I’ve hardly read any books!
Five. That’s how bad. Just five. Shocking.
Anyway, I thought I’d do a review of one of them because, why not?

Hola lovely people!
This year is absolutely flying by – I can’t believe we’re nearly halfway through already…
Last week, I celebrated my 24th birthday by eating lots (of course) and going to the Hay on Wye book festival.
