Lifestyle Favourites

As you can see by my blog title, I’m an obsessive person. That’s not meant in a weird, creepy or stalky way, just that I throw everything into anything I like. With this is mind, here are some of the things I’ve been loving. 


Sherlock- Oh my goodness WHY have I not started this before? With everyone raving about how amazing the new series was, I thought I’d give it a try. After my friend insisted that I had to go back to the beginning and watch them all, I did, and it’s absolutely fantastic. I’m actually obsessed with it, it’s just so clever and I just love it! Since watching it, I’ve tried the original books, but they’re just too long and sadly didn’t hold my interest. I’m looking for other things like this, or with the actors in, so if you have any recommendations let me know in the comments. If you haven’t watched it, try it! The episodes are long which puts many people off but you won’t regret it. 

Gilmore Girls- Another one that I’ve only just started, but it’s so good! There are so many episodes which put me off slightly but I’m slowly getting through them. I’ve heard it gets better as the series go on so I’m looking forward to that. 


Sarah Morgan-I’m aware that she is an author and not a book, but I couldn’t choose which one of hers to pick. I absolutely love her books and they just hook me completely. They’re all romantic books, but she varies the story lines all the same. The only slight negative (and it’s not even that bad) is that most of her books are based at Christmas. This is great around the holidays, but means you don’t get the same impression when you read them in the summer. I can’t pick a favourite out of her books, but I absolutely love her medical based ones. The Ebook versions of her books are quite cheap so I really suggest you try one! 


Mini Eggs- THEY’RE BACK! Whoooohoooo! I just love these so much. My love for mini eggs is greater than anything else. 

So thank you for reading! Come back here on Thursday for a new post and follow so you get notified!

February Goals

Wait what?? HOW on Earth is it February already?

Well actually, I’m so happy January is over, as it brought mock exams, bad weather and an overall average month for me. With that in mind, I’ve decided to set some goals for myself for February, to try and brighten up the year…

Workout- It feels so clichéd saying this, but really it is an important goal. We all slack over Christmas, and I know for me this continued into January as well. To quote Legally Blonde ‘Exercise gives you endorphins, and endorphins make you happy’. I think a positive outlook on life makes everything appear better, so this is only an added bonus. I really want to go for a run everyday, but as I’m sitting here now looking out the window while I write, the weather is reminding me that it’s not a good idea. Perhaps I should walk before I run, and take that saying quite literally and get out everyday, more than just walking to work.

Read Everyday- Although it is important to keep your body healthy, you have to stimulate your mind too. I’ve really struggled to get into a book so if you have any recommendations, leave them below in the comments, any genre!

Keep Updating my Blog- I’ve had many different blogs over the years and nothing has quite felt right. I’ve tried to follow the trends too much rather than just writing about what I want, which means the blog hasn’t been ‘me’. That’s why I’m starting afresh, with a whole new name, as a fresh start.

Have Me Time- I get so caught up in life, with work and college and everything else that I never take time to stop and relax. I’d like to take some time each day to do this, whether that’s a nice bath at the end of the day, or perhaps some time with a book, thinking back to goal 2.

Save Money- I am the absolute worst person for buying loads of random stuff I don’t need, and spend any free time I do have browsing (and buying) things online. I either send it all back which is just a waste of time, or keep lots of things I don’t wear or use, that just end up taking space I don’t have.

Declutter- Everything is going! No but seriously my wardrobe needs a huge sort out, and that is a necessity. I’m going to sort out a bag of stuff and take I to a charity shop, at least the I won’t feel guilty throwing anything away.

So that’s a wrap! Thank you for reading and I hope you return for next time. Posts every Monday and Thursday.

P.S. Legally Blonde is a great film, 100% recommend it!
