It's Monday What Are You Reading?

This meme is hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey. A way for everyone to come together on a Monday and check out what is happening with regards to current, past and future reads. It is also an opportunity to visit blogs that you may not have otherwise found. So give it a go!

Books

Currently Reading

Christmas @ Rosie Hopkin's Sweetshop

Colgan is yet to disappoint and that includes this gorgeous seasonal delight. If you haven’t got it then get it.

Inferno - UK cover

A bit of a slow starter for me but I will persevere!

Plans to Read

There are so many books that I want to read and so many that I have promised to read so I think there will be a list made soon and priorities set. Stay tuned!

Life

Beauty

dermalogica special cleansing gel

Not so much of an impulse buy but one that was made after having my first (and not last!) facial in Kuala Lumpur. It makes my skin feel incredibly clean and gets rid of all of the grit from the day.

origins out of trouble mask

This has been my staple face mask for quite some time and I continue to stick by it. Worth every penny and works every time. Since I returned from Malaysia my skin has been suffering – it might have something to do with the red wine consumption as well as the cold weather. Either way it needs a boost and this is the product made for the job.

Work

NHS

At the moment I am in the process of out with the old and in with the new so to speak. Notice has been handed in and the start date for my new job is in the new year. It is a MASSIVE change but one that I feel ready for and look forward to the challenge. ITU here I come!

Otherwise . . .

Christmas magic wand

Whilst catching up with my closest friend Catherine the other day the realisation that Christmas is just around the corner hit us. As I will be away for the main days of the festive season we have decided to have a separate friends christmas dinner prior to my departure. I am now on the hunt for cute christmas presents. I do love this time of year – the music, the atmosphere, the weather (sometimes!) and the decorations. The only thing that gets me is the cost of things due to consumerism being at its peak of extortion! As my love however prevails for the special people in my life I will get them something special.

What have you been reading/doing/planning?!

    My It’s Monday, What Are You Reading

  • I just bought the new Dan Brown. I am in the middle of The Passage (don’t ask me why – a friend recommended it and I am pushing my way through it), so I will get to Dan Brown soon! Let me know what you think when you finish it!

      I received Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop and it was far more appealing so sadly Dan Brown has once again taken a back seat! Good luck with The Passage! 😀
