I haven't written a personal post in a while, so I thought I'd catch everyone up!

Yeah, but I should mention that … Continue reading Life Update
On NYE 2015 we all hoped that 2016 would bring us health, happiness and good luck. Instead, the world seemed to have a punch-in-the-throat kind of year, with surprising deaths of incredible celebrities (RIP Alan Rickman), Brexit, the shock election of Donald Trump and many frightful and gut-wrenching terrorist acts.

The first one which featured Daniel Radcliffe did also scared me at the time but since then I've watched it a … Continue reading My Week of Films
I realise that we are nearly two weeks into the new year and this post is about new years resolutions, but bear with me! Every year people make resolutions which are, inevitably, forgotten within just a few weeks. The year always starts with an increase in gym-goers and healthy-eaters, but by February everyone has retreated … Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions
I'm on a bit of Harry Potter hype today as I was reading all the Buzzfeed lists about it this morning. They ranked the HP books here - Buzzfeed - but not sure I agree! It's a question we always ask each other and it probably changes each time but I think my ranking would … Continue reading Harry Potter Book Ranking!
