The Deepest Cut

by Natalie Flynn

My rating: 5 out of 5

I won this book in a Twitter giveaway, therefore I got a free signed copy from the author. This in no way shapes my review, which is completely unbiased.

I am honestly so, so grateful for the fact that I got this book and had the opportunity to read it. It is so heartwarming and powerful. I had to give it 5 stars. I literally had to. It would be an absolute disservice to the novel if I didn't.
I believe that a good book should tug at your heart or tug at your brain. I can say that this book made me feel, completely and absolutely.


Facing Pressure As a Teen

October 18, 2017

This post is partnered with the charity, The Children's Society, who help support vulnerable children and teenagers in the UK. To find out more about them, please click here

I think that when you are younger, you never think that when you get older anyone you know will get involved in crime. I think that throughout infancy and childhood, we all live in this bubble where we think that none of us will drink-drive, no one will smoke or take drugs. At least that is what I thought.
When you get exposed to the world out of your window, so many things change. You aren't as sheltered; you are in a position where you can make so many more choices of your own, and with that, so many mistakes.


My First Week in The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) | School Update

October 15, 2017

Hello lovelies,

So today I want to share about school a little bit, and I am hoping that I can continue with I regular updates about school.
So I started this year doing A Levels, (I might talk more about this in a later post) but basically, I made the decision at the start of October to move schools and take the International Baccalaureate instead of A-Levels.


Christian Girl Tag | Faith

October 10, 2017

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would do the Christian Girl Tag which I have watched on Youtube a few times. I am really getting into Christian Youtube more nowadays, particularly into prayer journaling and using a gift for creativity to glorify God. I haven't done a tag in a while too, so I thought it would be a good time to do one :D

Life Update

Am I Embarrassed By This Blog? | Life Update

September 18, 2017

So I wanted to share this post, and it is definitely a bit of an open one, as I am not really used to sharing about myself in this way.
Also please note that I really struggle with the spelling of "embarrassing" but I am doing my best to spell it correctly throughout this post. And beware of some grainy, bad quality images.

Back to School

What's in My Pencil Case? | Back To School

September 03, 2017

So I definitely have slacked off with the Back To School posts, but I wanted to share this one. It's a little random, but I am doing it for two three purposes;
A) to remember what I put in my pencil case because by the 19th of September I can promise you I will have lost 62% of the objects in this pencil case.
B) One of my pet peeves is when people don't have, let's say, a pen, on the very first day of school. I honestly don't understand how people can do that. 
C) To help any of you lovely lot who want to know what I have dans ma trousse (I need to get that French vocab practise in, lol) 
This pencil case is featured in both my "What's in My School Bag" and my "Back to School Haul" (in a different colour). A lot of the items featured in this post are also featured.  Check out my youtube channel here!

It's Been A While... Lacking Motivation, Exams, Feeling Lost | Life Update

August 21, 2017

This post is one that I have planning to write for a really long time, if I am honest. My nature of procrastinating things has made this unnecessarily hard and prolonged. I am sorry that you only get to hear from me now, after all this time, especially if you have been waiting for a post to come out here.

March Wishlist | Fashion

March 20, 2017

I don't really have a perfected style when it comes to fashion, but there are definitely things which I know I like. I thought I would share some pieces which I have seen and liked this month and might buy (probably not though because I don't have cash, lol)


My 2017 Birthday Wishlist

March 11, 2017

So, if you didn't know my birthday is on the Sixteenth of April and I am SO excited. Today I am sharing my birthday wishlist, and most years I have shared what I want for my birthday on my blog, as I have found that it also helps a lot of people get ideas for what they can ask for when it is their birthday. The majority of this list has repeated itself from previous years, and not everything is brand specific because it is easier that way.

Disclaimer: Because I get a lot of people asking me what I want for my birthday each year I make a list. I am not trying to "beg" people to buy me things and I am grateful for everything that I get. I'm not spoiled but I am blessed to have people in my life who care about me and are willing to get me these things and even if it isn't on this list and I get it or I get nothing from them, I am still extremely grateful that they are around to celebrate and/or wish me a good birthday.

5 things you (probably) don't know about me!

March 05, 2017

I really love chatting with you all and hope that you've been having a good day so far! Today I am talking about myself and some fun and kind of random facts that you might not know about me yet.


January Reading Wrap Up and Why I No Longer Make Monthly TBR's | Books

February 05, 2017

Today I am going to be sharing with you all what I read in the first month of 2016 2017 as well as having a little chat and (hopefully) a discussion about why I am choosing to not make Monthly TBR's anymore.
I am really happy that January 2017 has been pretty good reading month and I have been able to get lots of books read. I haven't done many wrap ups as I had a bad reading slump last year, but I thought that today I would share what novels I have been reading in combination with a bit of a chatty segment about why I won't be doing Monthly TBR's piles/posts  anymore.


New Years Resolutions and Progress Update

February 01, 2017

I haven't shared or talked about my New Years Resolutions on my blog since this post in 2015 and my first one in 2014. I wanted to do a small progress update though, to see how I am getting along with my Resolutions and share a little more about how I am going to achieve more of them in the next month.


What House Am I in? And other Harry Potter Stuff

January 05, 2017

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am sorry that you never got many Christmas posts, I feel very ill and now I am finally better! Thank you for patiently waiting and bearing with me though.
Today I have a fun post, I thought that I would share with you some more about me, and Harry Potter! Most of you who have been reading for a while know that I am a big fan of Harry Potter, the books and the movies, but I have never shared properly what house that I am in or any of my other Pottermore details.
