Book-tube-athon

 

This year I will be attempting the book-tube-argon challenge. 

I have never attempted it before but i am so excited to give it a go. For those who don’t know the book-tube-athin challenge is to read  seven books in seven days. All books counts so audio, comic, classic are all in. These are also seven separate challenges aswell that I will be attempting.

  • 1. Read a book outside.


I chose a small book for this one. With the British weather being so unreliable I didn’t want to choose a book that would take long time to read. I have absolutely no idea what this book is about but it has been sitting on my self for a while so I thought it was about time I picked it up.

  • 2. Read a book you bought because of the cover.


Again I have no idea what this book is about I got as an impulse buy because the cover is pretty. 

  • 3. Read a hyped book


This book I bought because booktube made a huge fuss about it. All I know is that it is about three sisters trying to win the throne. This is the one book I’m looking forward to reading the most so I hope it lives up to the hype.

  • 4. Read a book with a person on the cover 


This is a re-read for me. It’s a typical romance about two people falling in love. It is the sweetest book on my list. 

  • 5.  Read a book in a day


This is another re-read. I choose a small book for this challenge because even though I am a fast reader, reading an entire book in one day is pretty hard.  This book is about how three young children try to keep their fortune out of their evil uncles hands. 

  • 6. Read a book that has a different character from you


For this challenge I chose the character of Hercule Poirot. I chose him because he is a different gender, different age, different nationalitie and he lives in a different time period. I am extremely happy with my choice for this challenge. The book I’m reading I cards on the table. I have never read it or seen the tv episode. 

  • 7 Read seven books


To round this challenge up to seven books I chose a monsters call. I bought this book because it had won lots of awards and the cover looked interesting. 

I have tried to mix my books up for this challenge. I didn’t want to only read ya but I didn’t want to exclude it either. I’ve got a few different genres with some new and some old. 

I can’t wait to start  πŸ˜Šβ€οΈ

Happy Reading everyone x x x

Si

I don’t know why or where my latest obsession has come from but I am absolutely loving everything Portuguese. 

I think it may have been started by that song despacito. Not the one with Beiber, the original one. 

It on repeat in my house all the time as I’m listening to it while unpacking boxes. It’s so catchy ❀️.

Also my current favourite tv show is a Brazilian show called merciless. I cannot rave about this show enougth. It 13 eps long on channel 4 website. It about a psychopath and how the police twig everything together. It’s gripping. It’s all so completely in Portuguese. Don’t worry there are English subtitles. 


It’s not a mystery, it is a thriller. You know who the psychopath is from the get go. It is shown mostly from the psycho eyes.

It’s chilling and gripping.

Love it 😍❀️

I have discovered that there is a library in Portugal that inspired the hogwarts staircases in the Harry Potter books. 


How beautiful it this 😍😍😍. 

I need to go to Portugal or Latin America soon. 

Amazing places.

It won’t let me copy the channel 4 link but if you type merciless in the channel four search bar on the website or app it comes up straight away. 

We Are In πŸ˜Š

A quick post today to say yay 😊 After months of planning and sorting we are finally in our new home.

I’m so happy to be in and hopefully will not have to move again for a very long time.

I did take some photos on the day but I forgot to save them to my phone which means the lucky people who follow my Insta are the only ones to see them. 

Instead here are a few photos of my lovely new garden instead

The Strange and Kitsch

Etsy is home to many quirky bits and pieces which I adore. It is one of the many reasons that I keep going back, there is so many interesting things.

One of them is a quirky jewellery shop by Aeyshea Jones.

Her shop is full of lovely bits and bobs.  One that caught my eye was a flower brooch.

Of course it's Disney 😍 
It’s the flower from Tangled 😍 It’s sooo beautiful. Being obsessed with all things Disney this was going to draw my attention.

As I may have mentioned one or twice before I’m a little obsessed with books so you shouldn’t be suprised why I thought this was super cute.

 
It’s a book charm β€οΈπŸ“š.  Seriously how sweet is this 😍 This would look perfect on any bookworms bookcase, preferably right next to your favourite book.

The Mario games were a favourite of mine as a child. I would play them for hours. Mostly Mario Kart as I loved winning. These pieces bring back found memories of those times.

   
These are so cute. The first two pictures are necklaces and the last one is a bracelet.  The bracelet is my favourite of the three.  

While we are reminiscing childhood, do you remember this film?

 
Its an oldie but a goodie. It’s a never ending story, necklace. It’s charming and goes with almost any outfit. The colours are gorgeous and work really well with other pieces of jewellery. 

Something that also works well with every outfit is this scarf. 


It’s a day of the dead vintage scarf. It’s quirky, it’s fun plus it’s full of pretty skeletons. Which I love. It’s super girly and will work wonders for keeping my hair off my face while I’m reading. Bliss. 

All items in the shop are handmade from scratch. They are also posted worldwide. 

These are only a few items from Aeysheas shop, there are loads more.

UPDATE

I’ve been reading some reviews and found that a customer has used this piece as theirs wedding centre.


How frigging cool is that 😲.

It’s ow so quiet

My blog has been quiet but that is because my life has been anything but. 

I am moving house which is taking up all of my spare time and sanity. 

It has not been an easy transition. It’s been stressful and exhausting and it’s still not over. 

We were supposed to be moved in by the 9th but sadly at the last moment this is didn’t go to plan. 

As you know I love to cook so only having two saucepans and not much else coz they are all packed has been a nightmare. Now I could just unpack them, if I knew where they were. I am too stubborn and lazy to unpack and then repack all of the boxes just so I can make an adventurous meal. 

I will try to blog as much as I can but untill I have moved this blog will be a bit unpredictable for a short time x

(Update from I miss my car blog post.)

On the bright side I got my new car 😊 

No the bf is not allowed to drive it.

MAY

 

May is my favourite month of the year. It’s warm, sunny and my birthday month. πŸŽ‰

Yep this month I turn another year older and I’m ok with that. I am looking for to celebrating it with family and friends, hopefully in the sunshine. 

The dresses make an appearance and so do the flip flops, which are the summer equivalent to dressing gowns and slippers.  They are the comfiest pieces of footwear to have in spring/ summer. 

As soon as Britain heats up a bit the beach is where I will live and I can’t wait.

Spring Walks

I have loved walking around this month. The flowers are blooming. The smells are amazing. Plus no more thick winter coats – I hate coats. The countryside comes alive this time of year and I love every second of it.

 

Bristol

I ventured out of Wales this month to become a kid again. I travelled up to Bristol o visit airhop, the trampoline place. We were kids again for the day. I did not want to leave.Β  It was good fun however I did feel the effects the next day. My back was in half, ouch. It was a good workout, much better then spending time at the gym. I’d go back in a heatbeat. I will make sure I’m stocked up on deep heat first.

The last Kingdom

I am loving this show. It keeps me wanting more. It is on season two. I recommend watching season one first. It is not the type of show where you can skip a season – you will get lost. It follows Utred who was bornΒ a saxon but had been brought up by Vikings. He is after justice and revenge for those who killed his Viking family. Boy does he search for it. It is cram packed with plots, twists, battles, kings and wars.

 

Birthdays

April is the month of birthdays for me. Which does mean lots of birthday cake, yummy. Around 80% of my family/ friends are born in April. It is one crazy month. Lots of parties, lots of presents but mainly cake, tea and a chat. I love April however it is
