Hazy Summer Day | VIDEO

Despite the grey clouds and intermittent rain we've had over the past few weeks, I'm sure if we close our eyes and think hard enough, we will remember bank holiday weekend where the sun would not stop shinning, cocktails were being poured and BBQs were on the go. I, like most people remember this with sadness as we most likely know that that was the height of summer for the UK... boo hoo!

However I did manage to take a small advantage of the weather and get my camera out. I've made a short video of how I spent one extremely lazy sunny day. It's a small piece of salvation to escape this gloomy weather outside. Please have a watch and hopefully take your mind off this non-existence summer.

I'M BACK and A Summer of Reading

A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.

William Styron

For me, reading has been something that I have always done. It’s a way of escaping into another world or imagining what your life would be like if these characters you love and loathe were real, and for a while you actually believe they are.

So with summer in full flow there is nothing better than grabbing a book and lazing out in the sun getting lost in the stories within. With an abundance of books I do find it quite daunting knowing which to pick up first, and considering that I buy most of my books from charity shops where they have them for a little as a 50p it is hard to know when to stop. Hence why my last shopping visit ended in me buying 17 books that I am slowly making my way through... opps!

I have just started reading Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights and although it's a little bit of an unusual choice from me, I am really enjoying it and it's quite refreshing to pick something up a little different to what I would normally read. I'm planning on reading quite a bit over the next few months and hopefully discovering some new authors, so if there are any authors that you absolutely love please let me know, I might as well add some more books to my ever-growing book collection!

I am going to be tweeting out quite about books I am reading so look out for #SummerReading on twitter if you want to get involved. Plus, if you use Goodreads, let me know you usernames, I would love to add you all.


On an extremely important side note: I'm sure quite a few of my long-term followers or subscribers will be wonder where I have been. Well, in truth I decided to take a break. All of my social networking pages were starting to become something that I wasn’t happy with, where I was posting content just to post it. Instead of carrying on in this way, I decided to take a break and sort out exactly where I wanted this to go. It was a quite a long time away and for my blog, the longest I have ever stayed away. Moving forward, I am now back across all platforms and bursting with ideas I just can't wait to share. Please stick with me over the next few months, I truly would love to hear your thoughts and really interact with everyone. 
Thanks. Faye xxx
