Mini Book Haul

Sunday, 25 February 2018


Lately, I have acquired a few new books so I thought I would write a mini book haul blog post. Like I have said in a few of my previous posts, I am determined to read more this year. Booktube definitely revitalised something in me that has made me want to read a lot more again! Also, I am getting very fed up of wanting to read, but just not doing so. So, I am giving myself a kick up the butt.

Call Me By Your Name | Film Review

Monday, 19 February 2018


Based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Andre Aciman, Call Me By Your Name is a fantastic coming-of-age drama adaptation. From the cinematography to the soundtrack, everything just felt right. Even better, it's set in the 80's. The film is directed by Luca Guadagnino and is an adaptation of 2007 novel of the same by, written by Andre Aciman.

Animal Farm | Book Review

Sunday, 11 February 2018

So, if you have read my previous blog post, you will know that I decided I really want to commit myself to reading more non-university books. I love books, but sadly I'm not the biggest reader. I am very easily distracted and find it hard to just sit down, relax and snuggle up with a book. However, I have recently had a bit of an epiphany and realised what I want to do after university (which will be discussed in a future blog post). This has really given me the motivation to read more, as well as start my blog and youtube channel.

February Bullet Journal Setup

Sunday, 4 February 2018

This year I decided to give myself a kick in the butt when it comes to organisation. It wasn't necessarily a New Year's resolution, just more of a lifestyle change. So what better way than to start using a bullet journal? I have wanted to start a bullet journal since the end of 2016. However, I always felt nervous and lacked the confidence due to the beautiful spreads that you can see on Instagram and Pinterest. After watching a large amount of bullet journal videos, I realised that I didn't have to be the next Van Gogh in order to start my own journal.
