Blog chats, chocolate oranges and de-stress

This week, like the many others before it, has just gone by in a complete blur! I feel like we’re hurtling towards Christmas, not that I’m complaining because I love that time of year – but I also have so many assignments due in in December! So I would love for it to not come so quickly.
As I’m writing this blog post, I am also participating in an online blogger chat – which is my first time doing so. Already I’ve made contact with some more bloggers and expanded my network, and it’s a great chat, so I would really recommend checking those sort of things out!


Reading

Finished reading:
Eve of Man, by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher.
You can find my book review here!

Currently reading:
Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve picked this up again recently because of the tv show news – how exciting was the casting!? I think because I’m reading it on my kindle, it’s a lot easier for me to forget about it than if it was a physical book. I am really enjoying it though!

A Curse so Dark and Lonely, by Brigid Kemmerer
I believe I’m about a third of the way through this now, and I absolutely love the character development and the writing style. I’m finding myself really flowing through this story.


Watching

Finished watching:
Peaky Blinders
Let’s just pretend that the new season hasn’t just premiered because I had caught up on it! And I’ve technically finished the seasons that are available on netflix, so this isn’t technically a lie!

Unbelievable
I binge watched this within a day because it was just so hooking and heartbreaking. The acting was just superb and I really felt for Marie.

Currently watching:
Peep Show
I wanted something lighthearted and easy to put on in the background while I did uni work, so this is what I’ve got on at the moment!


Blogging

This week has been slightly more productive for me in terms of blogging, I’m still settling in to my new routine at University so it is still a little bit rocky. I’ve got big plans for the future though on where I would love to see this blog going!

  • Battersea Dogs & Cats Campaign

    June 25, 2020 by

    I wanted to write about this campaign because I thought it was such an ingenious idea and it’s one of my favourite recent ones! The campaign started off by recognizing the issue that needed to be fixed – the fact that people were overloooking the need to rehome dogs and cats because they were too… Read more

  • Self-care Saturday

    June 13, 2020 by

    Today I’ve decided to write about a conversation I had with a colleague, about what it means to be an introvert to me. I was a little bit disappointed with his reaction to what I had to say. For a little context: he was talking about how he recently got trained on the checkouts at… Read more

NEW TAG

Each week, undecided on the day as of yet, I will be summarizing my weekly review on what I’ve been learning during my Communications and Public Relations degree at University! I’m in my second year now so the workload has picked up, but I’m thriving off the environment and want to get used to writing more about the current climate of PR.


Thanks for reading, and keep tuned for this weeks posts!

-Personally, Emma
