The Book List #13 | Kismet

// T H E  B O O K  L I S T #13 | K I S M E T \\

It's quite ironic that the thirteenth 'book list' post of mine is going to be a negative one. Well, that's being a little hasty, this was not a bad book, not a bad one at all. There were just a few things that stopped it being brilliant for me. Off the back of two books I've read that were absolutely outstanding I couldn't help but feel this book fell short in some ways. Really, its hard for me to put my finger on why this is but little things added up and despite the fact it wasn't a struggle to finish it - once I did I was glad to put it back on the book shelf....

June Picks & Favourites

// J U N E  P I C K S  &  F A V O U R I T E S \\

Well hello there again, I'm back on the blog today to talk about some recent purchases I've picked up lately which have quickly become treasured favourites. Some I have had sitting pretty for a fair few weeks, some being delivered since a matter of days. But nonetheless, all my picks from the month of June. As you can tell already, I have quite a taste in specific colour schemes when it comes to buying certain things - some would think I only buy items if they have shades of pink or cream in.. in some ways I don't think its so  far from the truth..!

Snippets of.. Dublin

// S N I P P E T S  O F..  D U B L I N \\

Now that I'm back into routine, caught up on my sleep and finally had a few days to relax after a crazy two weeks, I thought I'd share some snippets from my trip to visit my uni friend in Dublin... a couple of days before jumping on the ferry over to Ireland I has just come back from a week away in Magaluf but of course it's not quite as picturesque over there, with the only photos I have on my phone being drunk selfies and videos.. so I've skipped over the whole making a blog post about that and rather keeping those photos for me to laugh at! Instead, I have some snippets of Dublin, specially the Temple Bar area, with it's quirky vintage shops and colourful buildings, I thought these photos would make more of a nice post to look at HA..

In A Right Ruffle

// I N  A  R I G H T  R U F F L E \\

More often then not, I'll buy an outfit (or even put an outfit together) and think "yeah it's a bit weird.. but I like it"- It's honestly quite funny just how many times this phrase leaves my mouth.. well the outfit in todays post is no different. A two-piece lilac number fresh from Tu at Sainsburys nonetheless - I know right; how many times have you answered 'Sainsburys' when someone asked where your outfit is from?! With their latest Graduate Fashion Week collection just launched, the minute I saw the advert pop up on Instagram for it, I was instantly besotted with this 60's inspired ruffles...

The Book List #12 | Three Things About Elsie.

// T H R E E  T H I N G S  A B O U T  E L S I E \\

Ever read a book so powerful you simply cannot hide the tears? Ever read a book with such a twist you gasp so loud, your mum asks if everything is ok (haha)? Ever read a book so good you cannot read it fast enough, the pages are simply not turning quick enough? - I may be sounding a tad dramatic in this introduction right here, but I honestly can't not emphasise how good this book was. With a combination of mystery, happiness, a touch of sadness and just a little of a thriller mixed together, if you're looking for a book that will both make you smile as well as cry with sadness (and no, completely not in the way you'd think) then this book is one hundred percent is one to pick up this summer...
