My Reading Journey

At the ripe old age of 22, I can’t believe I’m saying this but I love reading. Throughout primary school, English was my worst subject, I absolutely hated this subject and would even break down in tears. This meant reading wasn’t exactly my favourite and while my classmates were enjoying books such as Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia, I was sat in the corner dreading having to read.

I don’t know what it was about reading but we just didn’t get along. It wasn’t until when I was in Year 3 that things changes, my favourite teacher understood what I was going through and was on hand to help me improve. She gave me a list of different children’s authors, to make reading exciting for myself. Now, there’s only one author from this list that I actually remember and still read today.

Review: My Personalised Case

Just over a month ago, I upgraded my phone from a Samsung Galaxy S7 to their latest model the S9, of course, this meant I needed a new case to protect my phone! I am a massive sucker for great and reasonable priced phone cases, it can be quite hard to find one that matches my style. There are so many on the market, how do you choose between them all?

What if there was a service where you can personalise your own case? It takes all the searching out of the equation for you, you’re able to decorate the case however you like. Want to include a family favourite photo? How about a cute image of your pet? Even something simple like a fancy print with your initials. There are a few companies out there that can provide this service.

When My Personalised Case contacted me about a collaboration, I jumped at the chance!

Monthly Goals // August 2018

A new month means new adventures and new Goals for the upcoming month, can you believe it’s now August? Hopefully, this month will be a little bit quieter than July so I can focus on my Goals. I will admit now that most of them have been unsuccessful because I have been so busy with other things. I’m definitely going to push myself this month to fingers crossed, achieve them all.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for July and creating some new ones for AugustJuly has definitely been a great month and things have been just a little busy, it does feel like I’ve been at Silverstone each weekend!
