Life Update: A New Job, Books And Travel Plans

Life has been a little bit crazy during the past month or so.

I’ve shared some little slices of news over on my Instagram, but I’m yet to share any sort of news with you all on my blog.

I’ve been meaning to do a catch up style of blog post for a few weeks now but in an evening, my brain is mush so here I am at 7am on a Saturday morning, trying to put a proper blog post together for you all…

Perfect Liars by Rebecca Reid

Sock Sunday 01

Published: Corgi
Pages: 336

Blurb: 

Sixteen years ago, best friends Nancy, Georgia and Lila committed a terrible crime. They have never spoken about it. But now, in their thirties, one of them wants to talk. One word and everything could be ruined: their lives, their careers, their relationships. It’s up to Georgia to call a crisis dinner. But the evening does not go as planned. Only two women survive the night.

Bank Holiday Picnics With Baker Street

I haven’t had a picnic since I was a child.

But when the weather is glorious and you don’t fancy a BBQ, the next best thing is to gather as much delicious food as possible and to enjoy a picnic surrounded by your family and friends.

For me, the main player of a picnic is the sandwiches – especially if you make them yourself rather than trying to decide which one you want from the local shop.

I was very kindly gifted some delicious loaves of bread from Baker Street and after reading up on their rave reviews, I couldn’t say no and quite frankly, I’m glad I didn’t.

Glamour On The Go With Givenchy

When you hear the word Givenchy, you automatically think of glamour.

I have wanted to get my hands on their Glamour On The Gold palette for quite a few months now after seeing it on the way home from our Amsterdam trip and so you could imagine my excitement when World Duty Free very kindly gifted me the palette.

The best thing is, they didn’t even know I had my eye on it. Sheer luck!

A New Perspective Of Liverpool

One thing you should know about me is that I love seeing a city from above.

When we went to Bath in July, we visited the top of the Abbey and the views were absolutely breath taking but for a very long time, I’ve wanted to see what Liverpool had to offer from up above.

Recently, the Royal Liver Building have opened their doors to the public for a 70 minute tour of the iconic building and so, I jumped at the chance to book tickets for my Mum and I during a day off.

The Perfume Everyone Asks Me About

Perfumes are the one aspect of beauty that I hardly ever purchase.

In my eyes, they’ve always been something to add to my Christmas or birthday list because I never know what else to ask for.

I’ve only ever owned three perfumes: the purple one from Victoria Beckham which saw me through high school and college, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream which I fell in love with in Brisbane Airport when I had a seven hour lay over as well as Daisy Eau So Fresh which I’m desperately running very, very low on.

When World Duty Free kindly gifted me a bottle of Girl Of Now by Elie Saab, I was intrigued as to whether I’d like it or not as I’m very fussy when it comes to perfume.

The Truth About Being Unemployed

The current unemployment rate in the United Kingdom is 3.9% and even though that number may seem small and irrelevant to some, it is still an outstanding percent of people who are out of work.

I was one of those people.

I have been one of those people multiple times. I am grateful that I am no longer one of those people. I’m pleased to say that I am no longer unemployed.

The Sweet Breakfast To Kick Start The Weekend

When it comes to breakfast, 99% of the time I will opt for a savoury breakfast – eggs benedict, avocado on toast, a crispy bacon butty.

I’ve never really been the person who will eat pancakes or waffles, but once in a blue moon, I push the boat out and opt for something a little sweeter to begin my weekend on a great note.

When the wonderful team at Baker Street kindly gifted me some of their products, I knew that I was going to eating well for a good few weeks.
