I’m Back – Get To Know Me Tag

Hey Everyone!!

Yes, it’s me – I’m back. As many of you know, I have taken time off blogging. Since moving home from university I seem to have lost a lot of motivation for various reasons.

I have missed blogging and you guys so much, but I just couldn’t seem to face it for the last month or so. I am determined to get back into regular blogging again though, so I thought I would do a tag post today in order to ease myself back into it.

I hope to find you all well, and I look forward to catching up with you and your blogs again! 🙂

The tag I am going to do today is – “Get To Know Me’ Tag: 21 Questions. I am not actually sure where this tag originated from, as I just Googled different tags I could do, and this one looked like a great one to ease myself back in.

So, let’s get started!

‘Girl on the Run’ by Jane Costello: Book Review

28-year old, Abby Rogers, cannot think of anything worse than exercise and running. Other than managing her own web-design business, Abby enjoys spending her free time hanging out with her best friend (and fitness fanatic!) Jess, and chilling out eating junk food with a glass of wine. Jess is eager to help Abby find a man, and eventually encourages Abby to join the running club after telling her about the hot new team captain, Oliver.

However, Abby’s first session didn’t exactly go to plan and she vows herself to never return. Not long after this, colleague Heidi turns up at work and announces some devastating news which would change her life forever. But what Abby doesn’t realise, is how much her life was about to change too.{02763850-115C-4B6E-B134-574FBF4E0FD5}Img100

I absolutely adored this book. Right from the very first page, I was hooked and wanted to find out what was going to happen next. Not only does it involve Abby finding love, but it involves her finding new passions, hobbies and realising the satisfaction of helping other people.

I really liked how all of the characters were very realistic and true to people you would meet in every day life. There is always one person who hates sport, one person who loves sport, another person who is a bit of a player, another who has no control over their life and future due to uncontrollable circumstances…. the list is endless. Abby was pretty loveable herself – she wasn’t afraid to admit her dislike for excersise to those who loved it, which was pretty brave of her; yet she was also funny, confident and somebody you’d love to be friends with.

“My journey into the blogging world” – Guest Post by Jenny

Today, I am honoured to be sharing with you a very inspirational guest post written by Jenny from ‘Jenny In Neverland’. Jenny is a fantastic book blogger and has even set up her own blog touring business. I hope you enjoy this post, and please head over to Jenny’s blog afterwards here! 🙂


I started blogging in March 2013 and the reason? I was bored. That’s right, there’s no deep, meaningful reason why I started up my blog. I wasn’t overly concerned if anyone read it or if I was going to gain a following. In fact, I didn’t understand where followers came from! I simply came across another book blog, thought it was a good idea and started up my own out of pure boredom. I had previously quit my college course and 1509659_10203337791435838_7431774155389775404_n2my job – I was training to be a teaching assistant in a Primary school and was going to college one night a week to learn the theory side of it and then working voluntarily in a school 3 mornings a week to gain experience. I was on my course for a few months and every day I went into work I realised more and more that it wasn’t for me. I just simply was not cut out to deal with 30 odd school children every day. One day I went into work and I snapped at this boy. I can’t remember what he done but it wasn’t anything bad but I really shouted at him and that was the moment I realised it was time to go. I was also suffering from bad anxiety at the time and being stuck doing something I hated only made it worse.

“In the name of James Dean” – Guest Post by Claudia

Today, I have a very insightful guest post written by Claudia. Here, Claudia is sharing with us a very important message about sharing love and living life to the full. I hope you enjoy it! Please head over to Claudia’s lovely blog afterwards here!


I don’t know if it ever happens to you but sometimes I found myself trapped into Wikipedia reading famous people biographies. (Maybe) Creepy but true!

I don’t know how, the other day I ended up reading James Dean biography. A lot of you maybe don’t even know who James Dean was. Fair. I wasn’t born and my mom was a baby when he died (you should Google him anyway and maybe watch Rebel Without a Cause, such a beautiful movie).

Why am I telling you that? Well, I felt inspired by James Dean. He was a beautiful soul, strong and terribly weak at the same time. Strikingly handsome but tormented.

He made me realize once again how short life is. DEAN2
As far as we know, it’s the only life we get and sometimes we forget about it, especially when we’re young.
I’d like to remember more often that life is short and we should take advantage of it.
We should celebrate life everyday, trying to do the best for ourselves and people all around us.
What goes around, comes around.
And I’m talking about kindness.
