His Guilty Secret

I feel like my guilty secret is reading non-course related books during the semester, that guilt eats away at me like nothing else when I try to snatch a few minutes on my latest fix. In order to avoid that overwhelming sense of guilt, I saved His Guilty Secret* for my first day free of class, commitments and caring.

His Guilty Secret by Helene Fermont is a little different from my usual reading forte, I like dark and grisly thrillers, intricate plots that twist and turn at every point or fantastical worlds that only exist in imagination. I’m not usually one for the mundane but the intriguing blurb on His Guilty Secret was enough for me to begin reading – and I did finish it one day as I have a thing about books where I must make it to the end as fast as possible.

10 Little Things #22

Another Sunday, another lot of Little Things. I’m typing up the first (and probs last) draft of this post one blinkin’ freezing Friday evening watching Tower Heist on the tele box. I have no clue whatsoever what is going on in this film and I’m just using it as background noise. I am however v excited for Legend to come on at nine. Life is wild right now.

This last week has been busy with a capital B. Like sheesh, I need a lie down and a blanket over my eyes for a while. I got the train home from Glasgow on Monday after a hectic day of Christmas shopping, tidying and packing. I’ve been at work in Edinburgh twice which involves leaving at 7 to drive up there and not getting home till after 7 at night due to the joys of rush hour traffic, it’s a right treat.

15 Things On My ‘Currently Watching’ List

I’m a right smug duck at the moment as I’ve finished university for Christmas. My final deadline was last Friday so I’ve been mucking around for almost a week now – mostly attacking things on my currently watching list. I’ve been doing a bit of work at the antiques, a bit of blogging, a bit of Christmas shopping, flitting between Glasgow and the Scottish Borders, catching up with people I haven’t seen in a while and, most excitingly, having one on one time with the tele box.

Winter, Christmas and the holidays are definitely time to get snug with something on your screen. However when uni is over and I have no deadlines I’m suddenly clueless about what to what. Don’t have this problem in term time do I huh! I feel spoilt for choice at the moment but I sometimes feel like my Netflix doesn’t know me at all when it suggests things.

16 Things I’m Crushing On This Christmas

I really love festive style as I die for velvet, sequins and anything that looks a little extra. Anything for the festive season will always be a winner with me. I’ve been wanting to make a festive wish list for a little while and adding bits and pieces to my ASOS saved items. I haven’t plucked up the courage to order a pair of paper bag trousers yet but I am loving them, Chloe Plumstead always looks killer in them on Instagram.

Out of this wish list my absolute favourite is the green velvet suit from Monsoon. Crikey, it is gorgeous. I wish I lived the lifestyle where a green velvet suit was a necessary but I think my sister would haemorrhage if she saw me in it. As I’ve mentioned I’ve also love the paper bag trousers, especially the velvet pair and the tassel earrings from Mango as you cannot go wrong with tassel earrings. Oh and the tarot print dress. A smock dress with tarot on it, like hello? Have we met?

10 Little Things #21

I have had the busiest week and the busiest weekend and next week is looking just as busy and oh my god I need a lie in. It is not a want, it’s a need. The semester is also finally over which is the best thing to happen to me in the last 11 weeks, not a joke. I can’t wait to head home on Monday night and spend some much needed time with my little doggo, family and friends.

I have a feeling this Christmas is going to be one of the best ones ever. We’ll be in the new house and I’m going to put up a tree in my room because I’m extra and I’m going spoil my little doggo with toys and treats. I’m hoping the weather stays cold because there is nothing better than going for a walk when it is frozen outside.
