Recent Reads Reviews | #6

Today feels like a good a day as any to share some book reviews! I feel like I'm falling behind in the writing about the books, but I still plan to review every book I read - eventually. Today's theme is supernatural. So if you like zombies or witches, well I have a few book recommendations.

Why We Aren't Engaged (Yet)

I don't know about your news feed, but mine always explodes in summer with marriage photographs, engagement announcements and a lot of baby news. There is this pressure that maybe I should be doing these things as well (??!?) so I wanted to remind myself of reasons why I, as in me - Fiona - personally, am not even engaged yet. Of all the pressure I feel as a young lady to be married with kids or whatever, the most pressure I feel is from young 10 year old Fiona who wanted 8 kids and to be married by yesterday.

#NEBookSwap 2015


If you caught my tweets, last week I practically bombarded your feed with my excitement for #NEBookSwap, an event Rhian and I have been planning for I don't even know how long now.

Even with the rain, wind and cold, a huge crowd of potterheads camped out to watch the first film, myself included.

Lush: Space Girl Bath Bomb

When I heard about the list of products being discontinued from Lush I was a little heartbroken to see the Space Girl Bath Bomb on there. Space Girl was my very first bath bomb, all those years ago, and I loved it then - it made me realise baths are still a lot of fun, even when you're an adult. So, obviously, once I heard the news I ran to Lush in the Metro Centre to stock up on a few.

Recent Reads Reviews | #5

Some of today's book reviews are from books I read so long ago, I'm nervous that I might get some parts of it inaccurate. So, I'll try and reflect more on how I felt during and after the read than focus in on characters and plot etc.

Three Places to Visit in Newcastle*

I absolutely love my city; there's so much to do, eat and experience. To all my non-Newcastle readers, if I were to recommend one city to visit it would be Newcastle, not only so we could hang out, but so you could visit the best of what Newcastle has to offer (which is pretty damn good):
