This collection of three short stories are pretty much standard Welsh. They're horrifically brutal and not for the squeamish, plus they can be a little difficult to understand at times. I enjoyed one of the stories but found the other two to be quite hard to get into, Irvine Welsh is an author I really have to get stuck into to enjoy and I just wasn't in the right mood for this.

When I nipped into TK Maxx I was hoping to maybe stumble across some nice Ciaté shades - best case scenario the Beach House collection. What I didn't expect to find was Ciaté's new collection Haute House for £6.99. Yes, I was quite shocked too. They aren't my usual colours so I was hesitant to invest in the set beforehand but when I saw them for that price how could I possible have said no?

I was all set today to share with you Ciaté's Haute House Collection but as soon as the postman arrived I knew that would be waiting another day. I've been dabbling with the idea of a beauty subscription box for quite some time now but never quite took the plunge, however when bloggers started posting about France's 'My Little Box' making it to the UK I was very quick to sign myself up!
Be warned - this post is very VERY picture heavy (I honestly just could not help myself)

I like old fashioned and quaint things. I enjoy the way they look and how certain styles have stood the test of time. They have an element of geekiness about them but frankly that's something that we should all now be embracing.
What else is there to say? Now if you excuse me I have some biscuit necklaces to order....

You know how some books (Freedom I'm looking at you) take weeks to read and some you basically inhale you get through them so quickly? Yeah, since finishing my last 'Megan Reads' just a week ago I've managed to get through five more... mostly in the space of a day each.
Rather than go into each book in lots of detail I've decided to do mini-reviews as, as good as most of them were, there isn't a huge amount to say about them. And this way you don't get bored before you reach number five.

I must say I am feeling a bit sorry for myself at the moment. My wonderful boyfriend, Whelan (no not his first name), is currently on the other side of the planet for his brother's wedding in Singapore and it is the furthest apart we have ever been, and hopefully ever will be, from each other. As happy as I am that he's clearly going to be having a lovely time for the next three weeks, I am left in dull old England feeling a bit blue. The solution? Spontaneous pamper evening!
