Life Lately | #1



I've seen a few of these features running recently, so as I'm lacking inspiration, thought I'd jump on board and document what I've been doing this week!

I bought | This selfie stick! This was before the spending ban but it only arrived yesterday because it was shipped from China, but I absolutely love it. I think this will be perfect for capturing a shot with the Statue of Liberty probably alone as my Mum will run off in embarrassment

I read | I haven't finished yet, but I'm currently reading The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. I'm not going to lie though, it's not living up to it's hype for me. Maybe it will when I've finished?

I went | NOWHERE. On Monday I think I managed to complete a first draft of my dissertation introduction, so I am having the rest of the week off before returning to work and uni next week :-)

I loved | Celebrity Big Brother.. I usually absolutely loathe the show but this time I can't stop watching it! 

What are you loving lately?

Ooh nice redesign, I so need one!
I have been loving a book called I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes - I'm only half way through but once I pick it up I have to read until my eyes get tired. Luckily it is 900 pages so it will last me a while.

Thank you Gemma! I keep changing my mind with it haha. And 900 pages?! The sheer size of it would put me off so fair play to you! xx

Selfie sticks are the best, you can actually get some amazing photos with them. I really want to read that book, people either love or hate it so I wanna see what side I'm on! x

I have been seeing selfie sticks around more and more! I never really thought twice about them until I actually saw someone use one, and honestly they seem super convenient to have!

Recently I have been loving MasterChef Junior - it is the cutest little show!
