My Top 10 Favourite Books

For as long as I can remember, I've loved having my nose in a book. I was always that kid who actually liked reading, I took that love for reading onto studying an English Literature degree, and now I'm a primary teacher, I try and ignite a love of reading into the children in my class. Unfortunately, teaching can be quite all-consuming so my time for reading has reduced quite substantially. But, during the summer holidays, I want to make a conscious effort to read a bit more. Admittedly, I'm two and a half weeks in and still on book number one, but I'm committed to reigniting my own love of reading. And I figured that the best place to start with this, was to think back about some of my favourite books of all time.

Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude Palette | Bronze Edition

If you've read my blog for any amount of time, you may already be aware that I love Bobbi Brown cosmetics. Bobbi products have made up a large proportion of my makeup collection for years - be it lipsticks, foundation, mascara and eyeshadows. I love following the BB Pros - Hannah Martin, Amy Conway and Aimee Morrison are my favourites - and keeping up with all the new releases. One of the recent releases is the Nude on Nude Eyeshadow Palette, coming in two variations, Rosy and Bronze. I love a good eyeshadow palette, and when I saw these, I knew I had to have one.

The Ultimate Cider Tasting Experience | The Stable Southampton

When Guildhall Square was revamped back in 2010, the area of the city was given a complete new lease of life, and The Stable became an established restaurant in Southampton. Known as the location for pizza, pies and cider, I'm not sure how I'd gotten to this point without visiting - I mean pizza and cider, what more could you want? So I jumped at the opportunity to visit The Stable with the Southampton Bloggers for an afternoon of cider tasting and delicious food.

Seaside in the Square Southampton

Living on the South Coast, I love to be by the sea, whether that's sitting down by Weston Shore in my car, walks along Lepe Beach with Stephen or taking a trip down to good ol' Bournemouth Beach during the school holidays. So when I heard that Guildhall Square, in the middle of Southampton City Centre was getting a beach for the summer, let's just say I was a little intrigued. Last week, I headed down with a group of Southampton Bloggers to see what Seaside in the Square was all about.
