The January Reading List

Although I'm very sad to say goodbye to Christmas, I was over the moon to get some fabulous books and lots of reading done over the Christmas period. Here are a few books I've got on my Januar waiting list. 

50 Blog Prop Ideas for Your Photographs

If you ask anyone why they follow a blog, photography will be mentioned. Bright, beautiful photography is what draws someone in and makes them fall in love with your blog.

Photography is what I'm weakest at. I know this and I've known since I started blogging that I don't have a natural flair for photography and editing, it's not a skill that comes naturally to me. With that being said, it's my aim to keep improving and experimenting with photography and one of my blog goals for January is to start changing and playing with around my blog backgrounds. 

As I was writing down blog prop ideas in my diary, I thought my list of blog prop ideas might be as useful for you as they are to me.

Things I Simply Couldn't Live Without

Imagine this. By some incredible chance, you're stranded on a desert island. It's remote and you're on your own, what would you miss? The normal answers spring to mind, I'd miss my loved ones, I'd miss electricity and I'd miss my pets and I'd also miss wine, cheesy chips and of course, social media.

There are many home comforts that we take advantage of daily as we don't always realise how lucky we are to have them in our lives. We only realise how lucky we are when they're no longer at our fingertips. Gas, electricity and hot water are things we depend on a ridiculous amount and I'm not afraid to say, I don't know if I could actually cope without them or become self-sufficient. I'd definitely miss them if I were to live without them off grid, I'd be more than a little hopeless.  (But, if you ever find yourself living off grid and you simply cannot live with those three things, you might want to consider lpg from Flogas)

Pawsome Box Review | December 2016

This is George. He's cute, but this photo was an absolute miracle. It was hard to keep a pup calm with a full box of treats and toys next to him. His face looks darling in this photo, like butter wouldn't melt, but he definitely left a whirlwind of destruction behind him in his excitement of the contents of this box.

But with that face, you have to forgive him.

His excitement was all down to Pawsome Box. A dog subscription box that sends treats, toys and accessories straight to your door.

Retaliation by Martin Wallace

Imagine this. You lose your home, your family and your entire world. How would cope? What would you do? Martin Wallace's newly released sci-fi novel Retaliation explores that predicament and how far you would go to protect your own.
