As we get closer and closer to Halloween, I am seeing more and more spooky recommendations and creepy book themes. So many books are based on scary creatures, and unsettling happenings, that these books and posts are just made for this time of year. I was having a good think about the post for this week, and couldn’t think of many/any paranormal books that I have read and enjoyed. And then I thought about it and realised that I was being super ridiculous (what a surprise!)
Let me tell you, when you’re on a diet, there is nothing more tantalising to talk, dream, and think about than food. So when I saw this post, I instantly knew it would be something that I would enjoy talking about. I’m sure we’ve all experienced reading a book and coming across the section that is nothing short of saliva inducing food porn? We’ve all flicked through cookbooks and felt our mouths water whilst looking at pictures of recipes that we realistically know are too difficult for us to manage? Oh, just me…

I was looking for an enjoyable tag that wasn’t related to anything in particular, and stumbled across this little gem over at the blog: Emma @ Life of Gibbers. It’s a nice little introduction to random things about you, that are nicely personal without being intrusive, and give a wide idea of what I’m like and who I am than a usual bookish tag. Let’s get rollin’.
1. What is your middle name?
My middle name is a cheeky palindrome: Hannah
2. What was your favourite subject at school?
I really enjoyed both science and geography, which is probably why my degree is a BSc in Geography really.
3. What is your favourite drink?
I do love a good coffee, but I am also partial to a good glass of cold lemonade. And not sprite or some other rubbish version, proper, cloudy lemonade. Continue reading
Last week I signed up a to the House Cup Reading Challenge. I committed to taking part in the readathon over the next month, and have realised that I need a post to keep track of my progress! There is a set of rules, challenges, and scoring systems that can be found on The House Cup Reading Challenge sign up and TBR post. So, in an effort to take part and track my progress, I’m creating a master post to track my scores throughout this readathon.
Good evening ladies, gentleman, boys, and girls, and welcome to another Strictly Saturday. Can you believe that it is already week 4?! And this week I have some amazing news. I say news, it’s more something that happened this week. Shirley Ballas, The Shirley Ballas, head judge and queen of the dance floor, liked a tweet of mine! I know, I was super excited too!
Last week, we lost an absolute legend and entertainer Rev. Richard and Dianne. Not gonna lie, I am gutted. He wasn’t the best dancer but he looked like he loved it so so much. You knew that he would always be giving it everything, he didn’t make mistakes, and he went full out with the entertainment value. It’s not going to be the same show without him!
Tess is back in her asymmetric dress, and Claudia is back in her heavy eye make-up, which means it must be the start of the show… Continue reading
Welcome one and all to another edition of Fat Friday. Welcome back to those who have visited before, and welcome to any newbies. I’ve still stuck to my diet, I haven’t strayed or wandered, and I have kept up a relatively decent exercise routine. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, and as 3 weeks approaches (yes, 3 whole weeks), I almost feel like I am in a routine.
Fat Friday is a weekly blog post tracking my weight loss and fitness journey, used to keep myself accountable, keep a record or my progress, and share hints & tips that have helped me. To track my progress, or read my previous entries, click here.
Please join me, support me, and help me along my way as I am to improve my life for the better!
