Buying a second home - is it worth it?



If you are lucky enough to be in a situation where you can even consider owning another home, then you must acknowledge the realities of doing so. It can be one of the most difficult things in the world if you’re not already a estate agent mogul who can afford to hire others to get the job done for you. And it’s likely you just want to buy out another place as a summer home, office or somewhere to rent out occasionally.

You want to be able to bulk out your lifestyle and live the way you want to, with the four walls around you you’ve always dreamed of. You want to invest your money and open up a portfolio, and find success in the way you spend and the returns you make. All in all, you just want to be healthier and happier, and having an advantage with real estate is one sure fire way to do that. 

It’s going to be a hard thing to take on, and hard to pay for, but it’s not an impossible idea to tackle. If you’ve got your eyes already set on a place you think would be a good fit for your family, career, and life goals, let’s think about just how practical your plans are. After all, you can do what you want with your money, but you should always want to do the smart thing with it!

Creating a Gallery Wall: An easy step-by-step guide



You don't have to live in a mansion to have a gallery in your home these days. In fact, a gallery wall is a very popular way of showing off your favourite artworks, photos, and images. Sadly, putting up a gallery wall can be a challenging experience, and I don't mean just getting all the frames to sit straight (although that does help!). You don't need to panic though, as you can find out all about the challenges you will face when hanging a gallery wall, and how to solve them in our step by step guide below. Read on to find out more.

Blog Tour: Forget Me Not by Claire Allan



REVIEW


Claire Allan is fast becoming one of my top thriller writers. Forget Me Not is Claire's third book and I was just as hooked with this one as her first two. 

As with all Claire's thrillers, this one also starts off with a bang and the pace never lets up. 
Elizabeth doesn't like to venture out much, but it's not fair on her dog to not go out at least once a day. That particular day, Elizabeth wishes she had gone with her gut and stayed indoors. She finds a woman in a horrific state, barely alive and her last words 'Warn them'. This is only the beginning of the sinister goings on, but the question is, who is doing this and why.

Claire does dual narrative well - she has used this storytelling in all three of her books now and it works so well every time. As with her other books, you know the two characters are linked, but she keeps you guessing right up to the end as to how.

With the tension continuing to mount as you read and your mind desperately trying to figure out who it could be, you are in for a fast paced, hooking read and then another brilliant twist!
 
I hope Claire continues to keep writing these fantastic thrillers of hers and I just want more and more.

Gripping from start to finish, a thriller writer you should have on your TBR pile.

Blog Tour: I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney



Alice's debut Sometimes I Lie still remains one of my all time favourite thrillers, so I was excited but a little bit nervous to read her next book as I was desperate for it to be just as good, if not better - I needn't have worried - I Know Who You Are was just as dark, twisted and exceedingly brilliant Sometimes I Lie.

Aimee is about to catch her big break in acting but then her husband goes missing, leaving his keys, phone and wallet behind. The police become instantly suspicious of Aimee, especially as she is so obviously hiding something from them. As the investigation goes on, more and more evidence is being planted on her even though she is adamant she had nothing to do with the disappearance of husband. As we get further into the story and the plot begins to thicken we realise that people are really not who they seem.

Alice really does like to go dark with her thrillers! Just like with Sometimes I Lie there will be a few scenes to make you wince. No punches are pulled, but that's part of the reason I liked this so much. 

With constant curveballs and twists that will 100% throw you off the finale, this was another fantastic thriller from Alice Feeney. 

Terrifying, page turning goodness. I am now even more excited for what she has in store for us next.
