Hello friends!

So January is well on its way and I have finally come up with my blogging goals for 2018! I have been keeping a little list of things that I might want to have as a goal for 2018 and I’ve now narrowed it down to 5! So without futher a do lets crack on!

The Mythical Views!

My first goal is a common one among bloggers and that is to gain more views, and generally more clicks to my blog. Currently my views are still very low and as I’m going into my last term at university I know I won’t be putting in as much time to my blog as I would like. For this reason my goal is still low but by the end of 2018 I hope to be recieving around 100 daily views to my blog! Lets see how that goes!

December Favourites!

Hi friends!

So finally have made it through to 2018! I hope you all had a fabulous New Year and are excited for what 2018 has in store! I’m both nervous and excited for my 2018 as it will see me graduating and stepping out into the wide world!

For now though I have my December Favourites to share with you, so here are some things I was loving in the month of December!

First thing I was loving was the British TV show Plebs which is currently on Netflix. I’d seen it advertised on tv a while ago but never watched and thought I would give it a go. Well as usual, I fell in love with it and binge watched it, some episodes multiple times!

If you don’t know it, I would likened it to the Inbetweeners but set in Ancient Rome! It stars Tom Rosenthal, Ryan Sampson and Noel Fry and it is hilarious! If you are a loose end with what to watch, give it a go!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

A couple of days have passed since the big day and I truly hope you all had a magical time. However, as I said myself on Christmas day, it is also worth remembering that it is okay not to be okay. Just because it’s Christmas doesn’t mean we are expected to be bouncing off the walls constantly! It’s also a time for reflection, a time to remember and a time to give thanks for what we have, whatever that may be.

What I Didn’t Think I’d Be Doing at 22

Hello friends!

So recently I’ve been reflecting on certain habits, activities and such that I have been doing as a twenty-two-year-old woman. Some of them you probably wouldn’t associate with young, carefree woman! Not that I don’t secretly enjoy some of them!

 What’s Normal Anyway?!

So in this post, I thought I would share with you some things I’ve been getting up to that perhaps your average 22-year-old might not be. I wanted to write this post to highlight that it’s okay to be yourself, and do what makes you happy! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

So in the words of Taylor Swift, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!

Hello Friends!

So only today I have had to present a presentation on this book, which thankfully, went pretty well! So, I thought I would give you a little review on what I thought about it! This novel is included in the reading for the Gothic module I am taking so I already knew it would be of a gothic nature. I will be discussing plot details so if you want to skip the spoilers, just pan down to where I’ve put *SPOILERS END*

So What’s it About?

Perfume by Patrick Süskind was originally published in 1985 in German and thereafter has been translated into 25 languages and been made into a film. Perfume, or Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, follows the life of the protagonist Jean-Baptiste Grenouille who is left to die by his mother in the streets of impoverished France. subsequently, his cry gets him rescued as well as his mother executed for her crime, and thus begins his journey.
