I have been trying to take a step back from technology recently and do something different such as picking up a book or a magazine or trying a new hobby so I thought I would share with you some of those things that I have been loving.
I have been trying to Eat healthier recently so I wanted to try and make it a bit more fun so I picked up some lovely recipe books that I have been absolutely loving.
The first book I have been loving is ‘Eat Smart’ by Niomi Smart – this is a very new purchase of mine and it is a vegan recipe book; even though I’m not vegan I have really enjoyed making some of the recipes in this book and I can’t wait to try some more.
I was also lucky enough to meet Niomi at one of her book signings recently which was so exciting! She was so lovely and it was so great to meet her, despite the fact I embarrassed myself because I was so nervous that I didn’t know what to say.
The second recipe book I have been loving is ‘The Foodie Teen’ by Alessandra Peters – this book is so inspiring to me because Alessandra is the same age as me and yet she has accomplished so much already, I mean she has her own book!
It just shows that if you are passionate enough about something and you set your mind to it, you can make it happen.
This book has so many amazing and delicious recipes to try and I would definitely recommend that you pick it up – one of my personal favourites are the pancakes.
For my birthday my mum got me a subscription to Blogosphere magazine to help me with my passion for blogging. This month featured Victoria from IntheFrow, which I was very excited about because I have been watching Victoria’s videos for a while now and she is always so positive, happy and inspires me in so many ways. I also got the chance to meet her at Summer in the City (my Sitc post is here), which was amazing and she was so kind and so gorgeous in person.
I have been wanting to try Calligraphy for a while now, one to try and improve my hand writing and two as a way to relax and de-stress.
To get me started I picked up the book ‘Nib & Ink’, which is a beginners guide to Calligraphy and I have absolutely loved using it so far. One of the reasons I purchased this book was because of Lily Pebbles, as she talked about her new found love for Calligraphy in one of her videos.
The final book that I have been loving is ‘Ctrl Alt Delete’ by Emma Gannon – this book is a hilarious account of what it was like growing up with the growth of the internet. It does have some more adult themes but it is really funny and worth a read.
…And those are all the books I have been loving recently! I hope you enjoyed this post, please let me know in the comments if there are any books that you have been loving and recommend because I would love to know.
See you soon,
