Reading Next

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Coco's Secret by Niamh Greene

I am looking forward to reading both of these books. Have you read either of them?

What are you reading?


jordans 1st pair

After returning from the US with this truly AWESOME pair of Jordan’s they are all I want to wear. Sadly they do not go with everything and I don’t want to wear them out quickly so they do go back in the box every now and then!

If you have Jordan’s – How do you wear yours? If you don’t buy some because they are über comfortable!

Skin Care

Ginger wake up shower gel

This delectable bathroom goody has made me want more than the regular three showers a day (it may seem excessive to some but oh well!). Have you tried it?

Hair Care


These bad boys have not only tamed my locks but also kept away the split ends and made my hair feel sleek. Very happy at the moment!

Listening to . . .

This is the clean version of the tune as I thought it was only appropriate for the blog. However if you would like to watch the original then please do find it on You Tube!
I listen to a variety of music but this song right now has made a regular recurrence on my playlist. What is on yours?



This show is highly addictive and there is something that I cannot identify about Benedict Cumberbatch that is just so HOT!

How is your Monday panning out?

Do let me know 😀monday love!

It’s Monday . . .

Good Morning with coffee

This week is a big one for me. My last four shifts at my current job before I am on annual leave over the Christmas period. This year I get to spend Christmas not only with my immediate family but with my lovely family that are from the US. Here I come Washington and NYC! Excited doesn’t even cover it!

Apparently it is freezing over there so I will be packing for the likes of the arctic and with some extra room for shopping (of course!). I will be travelling for the first time with my laptop and camera so I am hoping to get some amazing pictures. There are a couple of sights that I aim to see but I wont mention them just in case I don’t get the chance.

One thing that I will most definitely be indulging in is NY coffee. The atmosphere, the people, the weather and the decor out there will be extremely overwhelming – however it will be a very welcome sight.

Back to reality then . . .


Currently Reading

Inferno - UK cover

I am going to give this book another 4-5 days before I put it to one side. It has taken up so much of my time so far and it is not that I am not enjoying it I just think I should have finished it by now. The point where your dad is reading the same book and over takes you says something!

Up Next

A Winter Flame by Milly Johnson

Getting into the Christmas spirit is always a little easier when reading some light fiction about this lovely time of year and listening to christmas songs. That is exactly how I plan on getting through this book.

Secret Santa Gift 2012

This book was actually a gift from my Broke & Bookish Secret Santa last year – Sarah from Reader, Writer, Nerd. So what a better time to get stuck in.

Skin Care

Kiehls-Creme-de-Corps-Eric-Haze-editionI am actually in LOVE with this luscious skin cream as once I have applied it in the morning it works right hard through the day until I get home at night. The fact that the air system at work dries out my skin, hair and anything else that is exposed to it. It is a small wonder to find something that keeps my skin moisturised for more than 12 hours. Good job Kiehl’s!

What’s going on with you guys?

Boston Attacks

As most of us are aware there are some very sick people in this world and things like this have happened in the past. Sadly yet another attack on human kind has ensued. One that has sadly taken the lives of three people (one of which a young child) and has left more than 140 people injured. Those who took part in the materialization of this terrible act of callousness should be found and destroyed. President Obama stated that “Any responsible individuals, any respon­sible groups will feel the full weight of justice.” (Boston Globe).

Martin Richard Victim of Bombing

This young boy was a victim in the attack. Just so sad.

Boston Marathon Attack Runner Injured
One of many injured in the attack.

Now all we have to do is come together and pray for Boston and all of those that were present. My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones and to those that were injured in the attack. Let us also not forget those who witnessed the event as it will be something that they will sadly never forget. Prayers are needed and that is what I shall be doing so please join me.

Pray For Boston
