My Goals For 2017

Hi Lovelies 
Honestly I can't be the only one who thinks that 2016 was really fast! One minute it was new year, the next the summer holidays and now it is nearly  the blooming new year AGAIN. I can't say 2016 has been my all time favourite year because they have been  a fair few hiccups in it but apart from that its been fine. I can't say I did particularly well with last years goals because I unmotivated myself because of some of the hiccups that happened during the year and not only that I recently discovered I have PCOS, so yes an eventful year but hopefully it will lead onto a brilliant and easier 2017.

My Goals
  1. Control my PCOS: This year has been a bit all over the place because of my hormones and some days have been rubbish with it but I am planning on controlling it better with eating better and also with a bit of luck and motivation loose some weight too ( I have put on 4 stone in 2 years) 
  2. Loose weight: This is following on from the above. I am hoping to keep myself motivated to get myself fitter and stronger for 2017 and honestly motivation is the biggest key for me so hopefully I will find it and keep it always.
  3. Read more books: This year I have read a few books including Harry potter and the philosophers stone, Jackie Collins Thrill and I've also started to read game of thrones and the next harry potter book, I would like to continue reading books because it is so relaxing.
  4. Complete Veganuary and stay vegan: I have been vegan before for around 8 months back in 2014 and since then I have mostly eaten vegan foods but sometimes I have eaten vegetarian foods too. Motivation again is key and also finding places that sell vegan foods and also trying more vegan recipes 

Blog Relatad Goals
  1. Schedule more: At the moment my blog posts are mostly posted at random times, I really only post when I have a spare couple of hours. I hope to get more posts done and make sure they are shared on all my social media to help grow my blog more
  2. Get 500 youtube subscribers: I have 101 at the moment which I am very happy with but hopefully this time next year I get to my goal of 500. Its kinda a thing to show that my youtube is worth doing. 
  3. Have 3000 Instagram followers: At one stage I honestly thought I wouldn't get past 1000 followers but now I have well over 2,500! I think I have pretty well and to be honest I just love my Instagram feed, I love sharing on it.
  4. Keep going: I have been blogging for nearly 3 years now and I love it as much now as I did then. I will continue to do it because I just love it.


I am sure I will be adding more goals thought out of 2017 but these are the ones I can think of right now, so keep a look out in future.

Book Haul #1

Hi Lovelies
Lately I've been a big charity shop fan and one of biggest reasons I love to shop in them apart from the clothes is the choice of books they have. Most of the time when I buy books in charity shops they have been unread and those books cost like between £10-£20 brand new, its a massive saving for me because most of the time they are priced between £1 and £2.99  

These are some of the books I have got over the past month or so, I also go the game of thrones first book. Most of the books in my haul is Jackie Collins books because I do love a good romance novel.

Jackie Collins - The Power Trip
Described as being a sexy sun-drenched thriller set  on a state of the art yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas. Things turn sour when a cast of power hungry elites find out they may not be as powerful as they thought. A review on this book said bin the 50 shades of grey- there are no better bedroom scenes then a Jackie collins book. I am looking forward to reading this as its one of Jackie Collins latest books and the reviews sound very promising.

Jackie Collins - Thrill
I have recently started to read this book and I'm addicted to it already! This a book is high suspense with deadly obsessions and relentless desires of a film actress. I must admit seeing as I've read a bit of it already its quite saucy but has some twists in it too. I love the way this book is designed with leopard print and little cats on every page.

Jackie Collins - Deadly Embrace
This books is a prequel and sequel of another book she wrote which is one of her best sellers called Lethal Seduction ( I have yet to find that one so I will read this book after I find that and read that first which I hope will be soon) This book is about passion and suspense which sounds like a very good read indeed

Jackie Collins Hollywood Kids
Jackie brings us back to hollywood hills in another hard to put down book of sex, ambition and revenge, after thrill then this is going to be the next book I am going to read. I just love the design of this book as its bright pink with glossy blue writing on it.

Michael Jackson Life of a Legend 
I have been a Michael Jackson fan for as long as I can remember and I like to collect Michael Jackson memorabilia. This book has lots of life of him and has some pretty impressive pictures in it too, I can't believe it only cost me £1!

What books have you bought/read lately?

Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone Review

harry potter and the philosophers stone book review
I am sure most of us have heard of 'Harry Potter' the boy with the lightning shaped scar on his head and I am pretty sure most of us have probably watched and read the books too. Even though its been nearly 20 years since this book has been released, all things harry potter are still as popular as it was back then. I have always wanted to read these books (its took me so long I know) so I recently bought all seven books and have just finished reading this one.

About the Book  
This book written by J.K Rowling and its about a young boy called Harry Potter who happens to be a wizard and he finds out he is a wizard in a very mysterious way. He eventually goes to Hogwarts which is a school for witches and wizards. While at school he makes some very good friends and also some enemies, while there he discovers what happened to his parents and who is behind it .. and it he that shall not be named 'VOLDERMORT'.

My Thoughts 
I have seen all the Harry Potter films so reading this was a breath of fresh air, if you have watched the film and liked it I am sure you would like this book because it has everything in the film and more. They is parts in the book thats not in the film and its written very well with chapters named accordingly like my favourites 'The Forbidden forest' with the unicorn and centaurs and 'Through The Trap Door' where harry and his friends go through stages to get to the philosophers stone.

Rating
10/10 I absolutely loved this book! it was interesting from the start and I didn't want to put it down once I started reading it. Its great for all ages and easy to read and to know who all the characters are. I can understand the hype about this book and with that being said I am now onto the second book. My 8 year old son has now started to read this book (he recently finished reading treasure island).
