Book Cover Challenge

The lovely Kelly over at https://lovebooksgroup.blog/ posted about this challenge yesterday but there really weren’t enough hours in the day for me to be able to participate. So today on good old Hump Day I have a well needed day off which means I have a bit more time to be creative so I will be posting my offerings for day one and day two here.

Day One

Enid Blyton is one of my favourite authors of all time, and as a child I spent many hours devouring her books and I cannot wait to do so once again. When my nieces are a little older I shall be rediscovering my old favourites. Plus I have realised there are a number of her other series that I had never heard of, so that will also be fun. Thanks to Bruno Vincent I am truly adoring the parody series and I will be reading and reviewing a few more of them soon.

The last one I read and reviewed was Five Forget Mother’s Day you can read it Here

Day Two

So I am going to go from a childhood book to a book I read hmmm a good few years back now and one that will bring me onto another post.

Awww le sigh!!! I am a huge Lauren Kate fan and I have been lucky enough to meet her like twice. I am pretty sure the whole of my Fallen series is signed….this is a love story like no other, where angels and devils really do exist. I am totally #TeamDaniel but I have to admit I did also kind of fall for Cam.

Today has been my day off and for once in a long while it has been a me day – what I mean by that is I have done stuff solely for myself. Firstly I found out that the Fallen film is now on NETFLIX UK yup!!! This film should have been more widely advertised etc as it was awesome….I literally finished watching about an hour ago and waaaay too many feels. Before all of that I made an appointment to get my hair done something I have been meaning to do for ages. It’s remarkable how much something so simple can change how you feel and your whole persona – I feel like a different woman. Anyway I will make another post with some pictures as there is more I would like to talk about. Back to Fallen – Fallen got me into a whole new genre and I have a lot of love for those Angels. Where there was Fallen there was also the glorious Hush Hush series – but that is a whole lot more swooning. So day two brings a read from the older me, I have to now mention Twilight as that was one of the books that got me hooked onto series based reads. I got into it late which suited me as by then all the books were readily available….

I hope you have enjoyed my offerings for this challenge. If you are also doing it please link them to me here I would love to see. If reading my post has prompted you I would also love to hear from you. As I have loved Kelly’s these past two days and I cannot to see what she comes up with next. I think I know what my next one will be.

I also wanted to take this time to say Wandering Wednesday’s have not been forgotten I do want to feature my New Orleans inspired reading but I haven’t managed to fit it in just yet. Hopefully I will get it back for you next week. I also haven’t posted any more Friend Fridays if any of you want to participate do drop me a message and I will email you over the questions.

I look forward to hearing from you…..

Bath, beauty, Pamper

From books to beauty….

So today I decided to be bold and to try something new. Don’t fret I will never get rid of my books. I know I have been slack of late but all will be resumed – there will be more actual book reviews back here but today I turn to beauty.

Now I won’t ever call myself a beauty blogger. I’m far too lazy for that title and I don’t have many routines. What I will say is that if this post works there could be more of these…so watch this space. 

Anyone who knows me knows I love Lush I’m addicted to their gorgeousness, which means anyone who knows me knows I truly love Snow Fairy – a Lush product that always comes in time for Christmas. 

Because of that I try and stock up as much as I can and this year I will be attending the Boxing Day sale – as the past few years the online sale has been rather disappointing.

Last Sunday I met up with a very good friend who also shares the love of all things Lush. We met on Oxford Street where they have their concept store – to our delight when we entered there was wall to wall Christmas. It’s not even October….and SNOW FAIRY is back in so many new forms I was like 😳. I knew that I would definitely leave with SNOW FAIRY but what??? Seeing as there was so much choice.

I left with two Snow Fairy bath bombs as I knew my niece would want one and a Snow Fairy naked shower gel which is one of the other new forms. I was distracted by all the Snow Fairy goodness so it took me a while to decide and I have only tried the bath bomb which was just as good as I expected. The gel inside it made the bath slippery and smooth it’s made my skin feel clear and silky smooth. As the days get colder I really could do with having loads of this to keep my skin hydrated and smooth like in the months when the sun is shining. 

You can find the Christmas goodies Here there’s a number of Pumpkin based products that I’m itching to try. 

Today was my well needed day off I have had a beautifully chilled day, which has been productive as my ankle feels loads better. I have managed to catch up on some TV and have a Lush bath….whilst listening to a book….I finally sampled my Snow Fairy bath bomb – my niece used hers the other night and she truly loved the smell the look it created in the bath and how it made her skin feel and I have to agree with her on those points. 





As you can see I was trying to get differing pictures of Snow Fairy in action so during this bath I didn’t totally get the fizzing feeling as I wasn’t in the bath but I cannot wait to get more of these for those cold winter nights….

Now I would love to know what you think of my Lush based post and whether you would like to see product reviews like this from me again….
