August was one of the hardest months for me ever. My boyfriend left on the 20th for his study abroad year in California, while I’m stuck here waiting to go back to London for university, knowing that I won’t enjoy it as much as I would with him. As I mentioned in my Life Lately post, we tried to make the most of the time we had left together by doing lots of fun things over the summer, so I’ve decided…

The other day I received Paige Toon’s latest book to review, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’. Apparently this is the second book in a series, but I still enjoyed it without reading the first one. These books are about a girl called Jessie Jefferson, and her whirlwind life once she finds out her Dad is a famous rockstar.

The other day I was lucky enough to win a goody bag filled with Barry M products from Dorothy Perkins on their Twitter. After the awful time I had at Heathrow saying goodbye to my boyfriend (more about that in my last post), I was so grateful to come home to a load of brand new makeup waiting for me!
