Feminism, Stranger Things and Food Swap

This week seems to have gone quicker than all of the others this year, after the really intense and fun week at Shooting Star PR – this week was more about getting back to a normal routine. I managed to volunteer back at Oxfam and update their social media pages and events on Facebook and I finished two books this week. I’ve also swapped quite a bit of my food shopping because I want to aim to eat healthier and maybe loose a little bit of weight as well.


Finished Reading:

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
I enjoyed this so much more than I thought I would! It had a lot more depth to it than I realised and I’ve already got some thoughts written down but I can’t wait to write a full on review for it.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, by Mary Wollstonecraft.
This was only a small portion of what she wrote, through penguin books ‘Great Ideas’ collection of works. I found it hugely inspirational and I hope to be able to write up some of my favourite quotes.

Next to Read:

Crooked Kingdom, by Leigh Bardugo.

I bought this a while back after I read Six of Crows and absolutely loved it! I can not put off reading this any longer, because there are so many questions that I need answering – and I know I’m going to love it.


Watching:

Stranger Things Season 3:

I’m actually really loving this season! I know that some people are gutted that Noah hasn’t been given more screentime for Will, but I think it’s good to let other characters have a bit more of a shining. I really loved watching the blossoming friendship between Max and El. I can’t wait to write some of my thoughts up on it.


Blogging:

I actually stuck to my blogging schedule this week, so I’m really happy about that. I’ve got a busy week coming up but hopefully I can still scehdule some pieces to go up. Fingers crossed I may have an exciting opportunity to write about as well.

  • Take me back to Paris

    January 18, 2020 by

    In 2017 I embarked on my first holiday – without the parents – to Paris with my friend, and had the most wonderful time while feeling amazingly grown up. It was when I came back and had the holiday photos, that I decided putting them in a photo album wasn’t enough and I wanted to… Read more

  • I watched Little Women!

    January 16, 2020 by

    This post was meant to be a little review on Little Women – which I thoroughly enjoyed – but will probably just turn into a Saoirse Ronan rant. I think she’s an absolutely amazing actress, and she was fantastic as Jo. She really brought the character to life, a character that I have been reading… Read more
