Where Has This Last Year Gone?!

It’s been almost a year since I wrote a full blog post. So what happened? Well, the short answer is that I was struggling. I was organising our wedding and spending all our spare time and money on it, and working in a job I hated, and my mental health was at an all time…

Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge: April

It’s been a really good month for my reading challenge as I read two great books, one modern and one classic. Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman This book was not at all what I expected! After reading the blurb I thought it was going to be some easy reading Bridget Jones’ Diary…

Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge: March

Three months in and I’m already slacking! So I took a bit longer than a month to read this book but, where did this month go?! Caraval by Stephanie Garber This book left me confused. You know when you finish a book and you close it, but you just feel a bit…shook? The story itself…

Wedding On A Budget: 5 Months To Go!

Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge: February

This month I’ve started one book, decided that it’s a bit of a thinker, a dip-in-and-out-of type book, so moved onto something completely different!

The Giant Lanterns Of China At Edinburgh Zoo

Allan and I don’t usually give Valentine’s Day much thought, but this year it just so happened that Edinburgh Zoo was hosting a Giant Lanterns Of China event and one of the few remaining dates with tickets still available landed right on the 14th February. I had seen some pictures on Instagram and I’m a…

Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge: January

At the beginning of this year I set myself the goal of reading a book a month. This doesn’t seem like much but I have barely read a cereal box in the last year, let alone a book!  This month I’ve spent my spare time reading a book rather than my phone and completed two…

Wedding On A Budget: 7 Months To Go!

Now that the festivities are over I’m ready to get back into wedding planning mode! I can’t believe it’s only 7 months away but I’m expecting things to start getting quite busy in the next few months! Since my last post at 12 months to go (which just shows how time is flying!) here’s what’s…

My Goals For 2018

Happy New Year! It’s become a tradition of mine to start the new year off with some big plans for the year to come and this year will be no different! Last year I achieved everything I wanted to but not quite to the level I’d hoped to. I managed to lose a reasonable amount…

Review: 4DX Experience At Cineworld Aberdeen Union Square

Being a movie fan I was quite excited when it was announced that Cineworld in Aberdeen was going to get a 4DX screen. I was even more excited when I received an invite to their preview showing last night. 4DX is a technology that creates an immersive cinematic experience, stimulating all fives senses using motion…
