It’s kind of ironic that as I write this blog post, I’m sitting in a Starbucks across the road from my local Vauxhall garage as my car is seen to for the second time this week.
When I passed my driving test on the 5th February 2018, I wrote a post all about what I’d learnt as a new driver and there was a lot of you who got in touch on social media to voice what you’d also learnt.

Gina Mills is desperate to be a newsreader, but her boss – the one person who can make her dreams a reality, won’t help. Walking home one night, Gina stumbles upon a dead body and after calling the police, she makes the split-second decision to report the murder live. But when Gina finds a second body, it’s clear she’s being targeted. But why? How is this connected to the death of Gina’s younger sister so many years ago?

I have always been self conscious about my legs.
But with my current weight loss journey, I’ve finally got my confidence back in how I feel about them and more importantly, how they look in tights, skirts and jeans now.
I began searching for skirts to wear for work – not overly short, a little bit stylish and not making my purse cry out in agony.
So where did I go?
Primark, of course!

Edinburgh Castle is the most visited, paid tourist attraction within Scotland and despite already visiting the castle in May 2012, I couldn’t resist another visit at the end of October while the Mr and I were exploring the city.
The historic fortress positioned on Castle Rock dominates the skyline of Edinburgh and believe me when I say, it is worth every single penny of entrance.
Top tip: Don’t plan your castle trip in advance, wait until the skies are blue and go on a whim as you can purchase tickets online.

It is HOT.
Yup, that’s right. I’m moaning about the heatwave because I’m a typical British person but honestly, I’m so ready for jumpers and the dark evenings now. Bring it on.
It’s been two weeks since the last Sunday post and there has been a lot going on..

Christmas is one month away.
Let that just sink in.
If you’re a big fan of Christmas like myself, then you may be thinking about doing Blogmas, or if you’re super organised, you’ll have all posts scheduled by now but if not, I’ve got you covered as I’ve created a list of 36 ideas which you can share with your fellow readers.
For those wondering, Blogmas runs from the 1st of December up until the 24th (some people do post on the 25th as well). You essentially write a blog post for every single day and share with your readers.
Believe me when I say, it’s a lot of work.
I’ve brought you 6 ideas for each topic which I write about on my blog so hopefully, there’s something for everyone plus gift guides!
I won’t be doing it this year but you will still have some posts from me..

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:I’m A Celebrity is back tonight!
Much like the previous weeks, this one has flown by and it feels like only yesterday that it was Halloween and now we’re two weeks away from December knocking on our doors.
2017, you’re going at a crazy speed babe.
Once again, last weekend was seriously lovely and it allowed me to properly start off a new week in a very productive mood.

You all know how much I love books.
I get asked on a daily basis on Twitter for recommendations, what I’m currently reading and how I manage to read so often.
It’s quite simple, really.
It’s mainly because I’ve loved books for years and the enjoyment in which I get from reading will never go away, but that’s just me.

I created my regular Sunday posts to share the highlights of my week.
Granted, some weeks have been tougher than others and I’ve never really hidden what’s been going on behind the scenes. You’ve known in some sense that things are quite right without going into too much detail.
I think it’s safe to say that this week has been horrific for the UK and in particular, Manchester. If you didn’t know, I’m based in the North West, closer to Liverpool than any other city but with being a Man United support and a regular visitor to the city, Monday night’s events really struck a cord.
We lost a lot of people in that attack.
