Monday Summary

Well I've had a busy old week this week. Lots happening as usual but its all good and I'm much happier than I was a couple of months ago!

1. I had the pleasure of being whisked away by two of my old friends to a lovely little place called Pecket Well this week. We sat on top of a waterfall around a fire. It was magic.

2. I discovered a website called Post Secret which is fantastic and really touching. People from all over the world anonymously send secrets on home made postcards and they are published on the website (once a week I think). Theres also a couple of books out too featuring some of the best secrets, which I wouldn't mind getting my hands on. This weeks secrets are all related to Fathers Day.

3. I'm really enjoying this running business. I'm sticking to my schedule and just persevering through it, despite how difficult I find it at times. I was thinking about sharing the schedule on here if anyone is interested?

4. I finally got some fish this week, although they are already dying. Apparently they have "White Spot" which is super common in fish and not my fault at all *bad parent alert* Pray for Pete and Nina!!

5. I finally took the plunge and revealed to all of my "real life" Facebook friends that I have a blog! I've successfully hidden it for almost 3 years now, and I'm not sure why because I absolutely love blogging. I'd love you all forever if you go and "like" my Facebook page. Link!

Now for a few random snaps now I've accumulated over the past week or so. I'm also starting a couple of new things, namely project 365 which I'll be posting on here and Facebook too, and I'm also going to be attempting to read a book a week for a year! Of course all of the books I read will be posted and reviewed on here! S'all Happening people! Talking of books I bought these three today, Noughts and Crosses and The Crimson Petal and the White were inspired recommendations from my wonderful friend Mori, and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four is something I've just always wanted to read.



  1. Noughts & Crosses was amazing! Seriously good. Good choice of books in general so far! :D

  2. Love how you put a song on your posts, I nearly always love them, Ellie Goulding is one of my favourites :)

    That photo of your pooch under the piano is so adorable xx

  3. I really want to try The Chrimson Petal and the White too - i'll look forward to your review!
    The Passage sounds like a book worth reading too X

  4. Noughts & Crosses is a wonderful read, hope you enoy it xx

  5. Nineteen Eighty-Four is an amazing book! I had to read it in school and absolutely love it, quite surprising for a compulsory book! You might also be interested in The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood, it's a similar concept to 1984 so if you like that you should definitely give it a go.

    Love your pooch, absolutely gorgeous :) xx

  6. Noughts and Crosses is one of my favourite books ever :D As is One Day!! xxShivvyxx

  7. Lovely pics lady. Book recommendations for you:

    Anything (everything) by Kate Atkinson.
    The Understudy and Starter for Ten by David Nicolls
    On Beauty by Zadie Smith
    A Fraction of the Whole - Steve Toltz
    Me Talk Pretty One Day - David Sedaris

  8. I loveee Post Secret. Always look forward to reading it every Sunday! x

  9. Those photos at the top are truly beautiful Kelly, what a perfect looking place :) xxx

  10. You look amazing in the first photo. Love your makeup in it.

  11. Love the first photo - you look great, serene and happy!
    Also - your dog is the CUTEST, what kind of doggie is that.....? xoxo

  12. The first photo is gorgeous, is your brother a photographer? he's really good! :) x

  13. The best part of post secret for me is when you see that someone had the same secret as you. It really makes you realize how alike we all are.

  14. Noughts and Crosses and 1984 are fantastic books...I really like One Day too!

  15. Never heard of Pecket Well before but I've added it to my list of summer activities.
    Noughts & Crosses is possibly my all time favourite book series, can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  16. Gorgeous pictures and glad to hear your feeling better, I saw your post when you weren't feeling as chipper + the comments with a response and it broke my heart a little bit. Also your brave coming out to your facebook friends about your blog- right now I couldn't imagine doing that! Hopefully in a few months/years I might be able to. :) x

  17. i read noughts and crosses a long time ago and i remember i really enjoyed it. I also have all the postsecret books, i love to just pick them up and flick through them every now and again. in every book there are some that make you laugh, cry and think and about half of them i think are my secrets too... :D

  18. Noughts and crosses, 1984 - both amazing books!!! Did 1984 for my English A Level, and loved it so much, i bought myself a copy and re-read it about 3 times.... so much so i'm currently reading it now! You should also try the Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood!

  19. I love post secret, i'm so sad I look forward to Sundays to read the new ones haha!xx

  20. can u plz share with us ur training schedule, i want to register to a half marathon but am hesitant as i dono how tackle it.
    thank you!! u look gorgeous as usual!

  21. 1984 is a life-changer. It's quite uncomfortable to read at times, when you suddenly notice a similarity to how things are governed now. Brr.
    The book challenge sounds great, I'll be following that with interest.
