TOP 5 TV SERIES

I’ve surprised myself by not ever posting and sharing my favourite TV shows… I’ve been blogging for nearly a year and I’ve never shared these with you?! WEIRD.

I’m guilty of spending hours of my life binge watching TV series and eating snacks.. more than once a week and I don’t feel bad about it if I’m honest. I find it is such a relaxing thing to do and I’ll always do this when I’m at my most stressed or in the mood to procrastinate. I definitely have my go to shows that I always lean towards more than others and I thought I would share with you guys some of my favourite shows and maybe give you some new TV to watch. Here we go! I hope you guys enjoy. 

#1 One Tree Hill has always been a favourite and I love going back to watch it when I’m feeling down. I especially enjoy seasons 4-9, not really sure why I just enjoy those seasons more than others. I love the story lines and how different each character are in comparison to each other. 

#2 Gossip Girl is almost everybody’s favourite, who doesn’t love a bit of Chuck and Blair lovin’? I know I do! I really enjoy watching the fun relationship between Chuck and Blair and especially the drama they go through.

#3 The Vampire Diaries has been one of my favourites for so long and now it’s finished forever I haven’t really known what to do with myself. It’s so dramatic.. (can you see the theme of my faves?) and I love the little myths and story behind each character. I bloody love me some Salvator brothers. 

#4 Brooklyn Nine-Nine is so bloody good and funny! It’s incredibly easy to watch and I continue to enjoy each episode regardless of how many times I’ve seen it. 

#5 F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Who doesn’t love this show?! I KNOW I DOOOO! Matt and I watch this show on repeat and I find it’s the best thing to watch when I’m sleepy and it always manages to cheer me up. 

All of these shows, but F.R.I.E.N.D.S are on Netflix and I couldn’t be without my subscription to Netflix. Let me know some of your faves so I can give them a watch.

Book Review: When We Collided

I recently come across a new author to me, named Emery Lord. I purchase two of three books that she has published, When We Collided was the first I read. 
I was in the mood to read lovey-dovey, romantic novels and after reading the first chapter of both books and the back of the book, I knew that this would be a good read. Let’s get to the point, it didn’t fail me & I really enjoyed this book. 
Jonah and his family had experienced the dreadful loss of his father and never thought he would feel normal again. Vivi had moved to his home town for the summer with her artist mother in hopes to start experiencing the world in a way she’s always wanted too, happy. Never did they both know that, during the summer they would experience their first love that consumed them. 

It’s been months that I have come across a book that I’ve become obsessed with. This one really did it for me, I read this during the summer when I had been missing Matt so much and it just helped me to relive the happy memories and all of the loving feelings I have for him.

I especially liked that the stigma of mental health and death hadn’t been ignored and instead, totally emphasised in the most powerful and thoughtful way. Emery hadn’t ignored the fact that people have difficulties regardless of what they are and she noticed that all problems and life changing events should be recognised. 

The story was beautiful and full of love between two teenagers that eventually realised how to love themselves again.

Review: Riverdale

Riverdale has been the hype recently and along with so many other’s, I watched it. I found out that it was going to be a newly released show last November and without a doubt, I knew I would watch it. I crave cheesy, drama filled, romantic TV shows, I cant help myself. So, I watched the trailer, forgot about it and then it began in January. So, season 1 came and passed and after spending 13 episodes watching it, I can finally give you my full review on this show. 

Is it worth the watch? I think so. If I’m totally honest, I was more interested in the story line of Jughead, Archie, Veronica and Betty than the murder of Jason Blossom, although I understood the point of Jason’s story line. However, as a show I think it’s brilliant and definitely could replace my love for The Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf (there isn’t any supernatural behaviour in Riverdale though).  

It took me 4 episodes to actually enjoy the show. That’s mainly because it was only introducing the character’s and setting the plot though. So nothing to do with the show exactly as the introduction is totally necessary. I do have favourites in Riverdale and my goodness, I really do look forward to seeing Cole Sprouse every single week. He play’s Jughead so well and has definitely drifted from his earlier work on Disney Channel. He’s fantastic as an actor and absolutely gorgeous. Where can I get one? Or two?


I’m also incredibly interested in the Cooper family, they just seem to have so many secrets and I want to know them all. However, Betty definitely seems like a totally different person in comparison to her parents. 

I particularly love this 50s vibe that is has. I didn’t quite understand it at first, then found out that it’s because the comics were set in this time and just love that the show has stuck to this. The vibe is fantastic, the scenes are excellent and the cast couldn’t be any better.

I can see the next season being even better than the first and it’s been said that season 2 will have 22 episodes rather than 13! Wahoo. I thoroughly enjoyed this show and I can’t wait to see what hold’s for Jughead and Betty and to also finally see what drama Veronica’s dad brings to the town.

My Flatmates Are Cool

In September 2016 I moved into a new flat with some of my very best friends, Macaulay, Naomi and James and now it is coming to an end, I’ve realised how fantastic my flatmates really are. So, I thought I would share exactly why they’re so brilliant. 

A little insight into my friends and how we met.. Macaulay and I met almost 4 years ago during a 6 week summer university taster in Aberystwyth (where we now live) and we’ve been best friends ever since. When Macaulay moved to Aberystwyth in 2015 he moved into a flat with James and Naomi, as well as Matthew my boyfriend. Across the year I became really good friends with all of Macaulay’s flatmates and when the time came we decided that we would live together and I’m super happy we made the decision too. I really appreciate having flatmates who are my friends and who make me feel so comfortable in the place that I live. They’ve made this year so much easier and have helped to make my final year of university the best I have ever had. So, I thought I would share with you guys a few little reasons to why they are the coolest and some of my most favourite people. 

1- They are always there for me when I have been stressed, overwhelmed with university and on the verge of having a nervous breakdown. My anxiety can sometimes get the best of me and panic attacks occur, this is when these guys are running into my room to cuddle me and make me feel so much better. This is the reason I love them, because of their constant support. 

2- They love my boyfriend just as much as I do.. sometimes I wondering if they love him more than me though. 

3- They super chill. Literally all the time, sometimes after a few hours of not hearing any of them I start to wonder whether they’re still alive. They are forever so calm and understanding of everything and they don’t kick up a fuss over a bit of mess. It’s the best. 

4- They’re always ready for a takeaway. Our most asked question in the group chat is ‘fancy a takeaway?’ and we always say yes. That way when I fancy a takeaway but don’t want to feel guilty, they do it too and I feel better. They take one for the team. 

5- James and I have this odd banter when we shout and swear at each other just because… But it doesn’t change the fact that he’s one of my very best friends and I love him a lot. However, I really do like walking into a room and shouting at him for fun. It’s amusing.

Update // New Years Resolutions

The new year is well under way and I’ve been trying to stick to my New Years resolutions. At the beginning of the year I posted about my resolutions for 2017 and how I want to do things that will influence my life. So, I thought it was time to update you guys on how I’ve been doing or how badly. 

Firstly, I wanted to bake more. Nope, not my under eyes but actual cakes. I attempted this by baking packet Tom and Jerry cupcakes. Baking is time consuming and expensive. I haven’t got time to do this all the time but I do think that I’ll continue to try a few more times within the next few months. Bub no means do I want to be the next British Bake Off winner but it’s more of a stress reliever. 

Next, I wanted to exercise more. For the first few weeks I definitely made a good amount of effort towards this by regularly walking and participating in short runs. I’m not a runner and I throughly disliked every moment of it. However, I’m definitely more likely to participate in exercise now than ever before. I’m happy to walk places regardless of the distance and I’m keen to do some form of exercise but running. It is not for me at all. 

I also wanted to lose some weight. So I started dieting and really struggled to keep a balance because of how restricting it is. In hopes to help my situation I weighed myself and instantly knocked me down, I gained more weight than I had realised and I was unhappy. I started Slimfast after hearing so many positive reviews and in total I have lost over half a stone! Very pleased with my first few weeks and now the weight loss has started to slow down I know I can have days off and still continue to lose the weight in my own time. I totally recommend Slimfast!

I also wanted to become more sociable and this is one of the resolutions that I can say  have stuck to. I’ve been going out more and become happier to meet new people and socialise more. I do think it’s benefiting my lifestyle and making me happier too. Win, win! The main reason for my nights out is due to the weekly socials my society host every Tuesday night. As the president of the society I am able to socialise and meet more like-minded people which is exactly what I wanted from being president. I get to help people along the way too and meet people who are just as anxious about university life and the stresses of assignments. 

Let me know about your resolutions, are you sticking to them? It’s harder than I thought!

Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

My newest book review is here and it’s a good one! This week it is on Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I bloody love this book, it’s so creative and imaginative and ideal for children. It’s incredibly written and so fun! I totally recommend to everybody. Literally anybody, regardless of what genre you usually go for this is so suitable for everybody as it has a little bit of different genres from romance to thriller and mystery.

Jacob Portman had been listening to his grandfather’s stories his whole life, stories about a group of peculiar children whom he lives within a children’s home in Wales. As he grew older he realised that these were in fact just stories and those of which he doubts until he visits his dying grandfather and witnesses a creature that only he could see. Grandfather Abraham would describe simply as a monster. He and his father spend 3 weeks in Wales in hopes to learn more about his beloved grandfather and instead learn more than he could ever have imagined.

I think this book is incredible. I’ve not come across a review that says otherwise yet. It’s so fun to read and it makes you remember all those imaginative stories you come across as a kid. The book has old pictures of these peculiar children and I love that you get to see what these children would have actually looked like. However, it’s so frustrating that they’re in the middle of chapters throughout the book. Don’t get me wrong I love the images I just wish there was more of a structure to it as I found that I would get distracted by the images when reading a chapter.

This book is fantastic and has made me so excited to read the second and third instalments! Let me know if you liked or disliked it and check out my social media.
