January has definitely been a jam-packed month! Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying all my content this month, especially all my book reviews. It’s no different today, I am sharing you my fourth review of January, which is very exciting! I have left the best till last as I will be sharing with you my review of Skeletal by Emma Pullar. Normally these book reviews are thanks to a book blog tours hosted by either Neverland Blog Tours or The Book Marketing Expert.
For today’s review though, I actually came across Skeletal when Emma reached out to a variety of bloggers on Twitter. I jumped at the opportunity to help her find her audience, she’s currently finding it hard because the novel isn’t Young Adult as it’s too gory and sweary, yet with the protagonist having a young voice, she feels it should fit this genre/audience. In her own words, Skeletal has been created to fuel her want of Young Adult dystopian with more adult themes.
Right enough chit chat, shall we get into the review of Skeletal?

Candles are such a must for Autumn/Winter, there’s nothing better than a candle illuminating the room. I love them to be in a position where you can see the light flickering, it brings some warmth to the room, even when it’s freezing outside. Last year for Blogmas, I shared my favourite Scentsy Wax Melts, this year I wanted to share my candle collection.
I am a massive fan of candles, they’re one of my favourite things, at the moment I have got just a small collection of candles…

I’m sure it’s no surprise that I am a MASSIVE fan of The Body Shop, I am always sharing my thoughts on their products and I am always tweeting about them. Today, I will be sharing with you my thoughts on their latest release, the Vanilla Pumpkin range. This range was released at the end of September, seems fitting with it being Autumn as well as Halloween! Everyone was raving about it on Twitter, so I knew I had to get my hands on it, I also love when The Body Shop release themed ranges.
When I first saw it on Twitter, it wasn’t available in store, only online. I didn’t want to take the chance of buying it and not liking it! When I visited my Body Shop in Aylesbury, the store assistant was really kind and allowed me to smell the Body Butter, which instantly made me want it! First thoughts I wasn’t 100% sure, but after a little while, the scent did grow on me. She even said herself how she wasn’t sure on it but after a while, it grew on her. One of the main reasons I love The Body Shop is because of their Love Your Body Club.
Can you believe that it’s the start of a new month? The leaves are starting to fall, candles are being lit and comfy jumpers are out! This must mean one thing, October is here. October is one of my favourite months, with both my Birthday and Christmas just around the corner, not to mention Halloween as well! For me Autumn is certainly one of the best months.
I do prefer the cold over the heat sometimes of our Summer, that’s actually when we do have a Summer here in the United Kingdom! With the beginning of a new month, comes my Favourites! I can not wait to share with you what I’ve been loving during September. It’s definitely been a hectic month for me, I will speak about this a little in my October Goals on Friday, so look out for that post.
For the past couple of months, I have been apart of one of the most amazing opportunities. Theatre Royal Plymouth created a scheme for bloggers in Plymouth, with no previous experience in the theatre industry I jumped at this opportunity and then I received the amazing news that I gained a place on the scheme. With there being such a big interest in the scheme, the Theatre wanted to make it a quarterly opportunity, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
Now the Spring term is over, it is time to say goodbye to the Theatre, as ten new bloggers are getting their backstage experience. Before saying farewell, I would like to chat about the scheme, first up! What did I enjoy the most? It would have to be seeing parts of performances that you wouldn’t normally, as well as meeting cast members. This was the whole aim of the scheme, we were never there to review the performance, we would speak about our backstage experience.
I adore supporting little stores on Etsy, with Christmas just around the corner, I thought it was perfect timing to pop along to Jemma Humphreys’ Etsy Store. I recently did a mini-haul of her Halloween stickers, I fell in love with them so much, that I of course needed to pick up her Christmas ones to get myself in the festive spirit.
