Book Lovers – Emily Henry

Book Lovers by Emily Henry is the perfect book to read this summer. It is full of humour, romantic moments and even some moments that will make you feel emotional. I’ve adored all of Emily Henry’s books but this one is easily my favourite of hers for so many reasons.

Ellie Pillai is Brown – Christine Pillainayagam

My name is Ellie. Ellie Pillai . . . And I suppose I am a little bit weird, but then, aren't we all, just a little bit? Most days, Ellie Pillai is somewhere between invisible, and not very cool - and usually she's okay with that. But suddenly, Ellie feels different. Maybe it's the new boy at school who makes her brain explode into rainbows every time she sees him (and also happens to be going out with her best friend), or maybe it's her new drama teacher, the one who seems to have noticed she exists.

Trip to Lanzarote – Recap

After 3 years of waiting, me and David finally got to go on holiday to Lanzarote again. We were booked to go in 2020 but the pandemic got in the way. So, I am so glad we finally got to go back to the place that we love. We were there for 16 days and had such an amazing time. I wanted to do a little holiday recap post so that I could look back on the memories in a few years from now. So, here is my trip to Lanzarote recap!
