May 2017 Favourites

For my May Favourites (admittedly a little late), I've picked: New Look Shape & Define Eyebrow Kit. I love this, New Look has some awesome make up and I have heard (I don't know how true this is) that they get their make up from the same manufacturer as Mac. That's got to be good,...

The Couple Next Door – Review

The Couple Next Door, written by Shari Lapena and narrated by Kirsten Potter. I found this one difficult to get into at first due to the slightly grating voice of  Kirsten, but I soon got used to it. After listening to quite a few British authors of late, it was a contrast to an American one... Continue Reading →

Vintage Girls Day

My friend Cheryl arranged a vintage salon day at Le Keux Vintage Salon in the Custard factory, Birmingham back in February and the day finally arrived after months of group whatsapp messages sharing dress and hair style ideas. Cheryl had been a couple of times before so she already knew what to expect. The place... Continue Reading →

I See You – Review

If I lived in London, I would be crapping my pants right about now! This story was absolutely brilliant. It had me on the edge of my seat, a real whodunnit story with plenty going on.  It is written by the talented Clare Mackintosh and narrated by Rachel Atkins.  It centres Zoe Walker, a 40...

Midweek Mooch

Today was a surprisingly lovely day considering the weather forecast had said light rain. You know the feeling when you've planned a day off and you're literally at the sheer mercy of whatever the weather decides it wants to subject you to. I had planned on it either way but so happy I could be... Continue Reading →

The Girl Before – Review

The Girl Before is written by JP Delaney and narrated by Emilia Fox, Finty Williams (my favourite narrator and daughter of Judy Dench) and Lise Aagaard Knudsen. It centres around two female characters, one in the past and one in the present. The storylines are simultaneously read from each characters perspective as the story unfolds for each...

Sunny Afternoon Tea Supporting Mind

You know when you see something really close to your home that you never noticed before and it just completely boggles you. That happened today.  When someone suggests walking up to see a flower sale, it's perfectly normal toassume they mean a few pots on someone's driveway. Actually, no. It was a small garden house...

The Husbands Secret – Review

I recently read, or rather listened to The Husbands Secret by Liane Moriarty, which was narrated by Caroline Lee. I use Audible regularly and get one free book per month for a small subscription fee (I think this is £7.99, but you get a free trial). It is a great way to read without having to...

Canal Boat Ride

Canals are underrated, as a lot of the time they run through big cities and are linked to dodgy goings on and dumped rubbish, but there are part of the country where canals can be spectacularly beautiful and great for a day out. I am lucky to live near one and I have often taken... Continue Reading →
