Picnic Party with Troika Books

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of going to Troika Books' Picnic Party at The Parlour Cafe in Herne Hill. I will be honest and say that I hadn't known about Troika Books for very long, but I had seen some of their very appealing books on twitter, so when the invite landed in my inbox, I jumped at the chance to go.

Afternoon Tea with Rosanna Ley and Quercus Books

It is less than a month until the paperback publication of Her Mother's Secret comes out and last week I had the absolute pleasure of attending an afternoon tea with Rosanna Ley at the Covent Garden hotel in London. It wasn't an opportunity I wanted missed, so I booked the day off work and heading into the busy streets of London for the day.

Coach x Disney- A Dark Fairytale Collection

If you're an avid Disney fan like me, I'm sure you are aware of every Disney collaboration going, whether that's Cath Kidston, Pandora, Kate Spade and of course Coach, the list goes on! After the success of Coach's Mickey Mouse range, they are back today with their Dark Fairy Tale range and thanks to my sister we got to preview some of the new collection at their Bluewater store.

My lowest point

Anxiety is something I never knew I had until a few years ago and even though it was a self diagnosis, please let me reiterate it wasn't a case of oh I'm so worried all the time, it explained why I couldn't handle or deal with situations as someone without it should. I was struggling but coping, that was until last year where my mental health took a turn for the worse.

Why it's ok to give up on a book.

I began writing this post at the beginning of April as it was something I mentioned in my 5 reading resolutions for 2018 post back in January, which you can read here and I wanted to go into more detail about in a blog post. We are always encouraging people to read more, but there is this stigma that once you start a book, you have got to finish it, regardless of whether you are enjoying it or not. This is actually crazy as if we are supposed to be encouraging people to read, this would completely suck all of the enjoyment out of what reading is supposed to do!
