Monday, Blogging, It's Monday What Are You Reading?, IMWAYR, Blog A Book Etc, Fay


So Christmas is done but we are still waiting for the New Year and things are really starting to take shape over here at Blog A Book. In the next couple of weeks you will be seeing some changes here and there. If there is anything in particular that you would like to see on the blog just send me an email. So back to the late Monday’s  post.

Reading, Books, Fiction, Non Fiction, It's Monday What Are You Reading?, IMWAYR, Blog A Book Etc, Fay


I finished listening to this on Audible a couple of days ago and have to say I am glad it is over.
Review will be up soon.

This book is a title from earlier in the year but it has been waiting on my shelf for some time so I figured it would be a good opportunity to read it now and listen along the way. I have read a couple of Moriarty’s books and loved them. Have you read any?

Don’t you just love it when you have an excuse to light some scrummy Yankee Candles! The Christmas scents are particularly yummy smells. Do you have a favourite?

Crowded Christmas Shopping

That’s right – two days before Christmas being normal human beings we forgot some bits and had to brave the crowds. This is just a little part of the crowd that we encountered in Stratford Westfield.

Of course I had to get the boy a present and he absolutely loved it – it lasted all of two days.

Although I am working on New Year’s Eve that doesn’t stop me thinking about what I would wear if I was actually going out. There will be a post up tomorrow with other items for an outfit to bring in the New Year. What are you wearing for the big night?

So despite it being Tuesday I hope you enjoyed my Monday post!

Treacle Moon – One Ginger Morning

Ginger wake up shower gel

The past couple of weeks have been a little full on so having the chance to kick back, relax and have a bubble bath with a book is a bonus. Especially when the bubbles last a while. Even for a refreshing shower this big bottle of love is just wonderful. The packaging is pretty, practical and easily storable. It is also durable as it is waterproof so no soggy edges of cardboard to get soggy. An easy open lid for those with stiff fingers and an easy squeeze bottle to get out the gorgeous contents.

The gel itself holds its colour when out of the bottle and is nice and thick. The bubbles once lathered are pretty immense and you only need a little bit to go a long way. The smell does not hit your nose immediately and is far from sickly. Whilst lathering up you will notice a build up of the smell sensation and gradually the ginger infuses with the hot water and takes to the air. The formula is not sticky and does not leave a residue once washed off, it is also nice that it does not leave your skin dry when you are finished bathing. The one other thing that really impressed me with this product is the fact that having really sensitive skin means that the number of beautifully scented products I can use is extremely limited. I can safely say that my skin has been softer than ever and not a spot of irritation. I cannot confirm that it is suitable for all skin types but it suited my highly sensitive skin just fine.

You can find this lovely product either at Treacle Moon or Tesco (exclusively made for Tesco! Swit Swoo!)

£2.99 for 500ml is a very good bargain!
