The Great Gatsby | Mayflower Theatre

I have loved The Great Gatsby for the longest time - I read it for the first time when I was at sixth form college, and instantly fell in love with the writing and the characters. As well as being a fabulous read, it's been adapted for film, and now it's been turned into a ballet. I went to the ballet (for the first and only time) for my 21st birthday and loved the whole experience. So when I heard that the Northern Ballet were bringing their performance of The Great Gatsby to the Mayflower, I jumped at the chance to watch it*.

Cooking From Scratch | My Experience

If you follow me on Instagram, you may be aware that I have recently started cooking a lot more of our meals totally from scratch. I've ditched the convenience food, hardly ever pick up a jarred sauce, and instead cooking with more fresh ingredients. Last month, I officially rejoined Slimming World, and a big part of that is cooking from scratch. I had always been slightly scared of the kitchen, with very little confidence in my ability, so cooking from scratch has taken some getting used to. But I thought I'd share my experience, to show that if I can step into the kitchen somewhat successfully, anyone can!

Best Books of 2019... So Far! #1

If you follow me on Twitter or Goodreads, you might be aware that I am attempting to read 24 books this year, as part of the Goodreads Reading Challenge. And I'm doing well, even if I do say so myself. In a way to keep track of my reading, I'm sharing every book I read on my Twitter feed, and I thought I'd compile a list of the best books I've read throughout the year on here. So, I'm dividing the year into three parts - January-April, May-August, and September-December - and I'll run you through the five best books I've read so far and give you a short review for each. Hope you enjoy!
