Today has very much been my definition of a typical summer day for me. I have quite literally spent the day moping about the house rather than being out and about, which don’t get me wrong is actually fairly crap but the past few weeks I have been up and out and getting out of the house trying to find places to adventure to and explore.
Recently, I’ve just not had anywhere to go as a whole. I know places I can go but everywhere in these towns or cities or villages I have managed to explore the majority of already.
I spent the last three weeks maybe? going to and from my local city – Chester. With friends I have already there, I have managed to find new places I didn’t know about which was fun at the time; its just now looking back I couldn’t go back to these places and not find anything new or interesting because my friends quite literally show me every nook and cranny in these places.
I’ve also had some of those really chill days moping about in my own house and in other people’s houses which have again, been lovely and sometimes I much prefer these days to those days where you spend the whole entire day walking about and getting your step count up.
Today has been a day of sitting in, messing about with makeup, planning a couple of blog posts and I actually managed to film two videos today, so I’m quite happy. I’ve also been vlogging but because I’ve not been doing anything, there’s nothing for me to actually put together for a vlog, which is defeating the object completely of creating a vlog.
I am very tired though purely because of the fact since breaking up from college, my s,eep pattern has been completely and utterly destroyed. (also the fact my body just can’t stay asleep) I’ve been falling asleep at the most stupid times of the night. Last week I had the full week of not falling asleep until half 3 in the morning and its starting to kinda effect me during the day now. My sleeping is completely and utterly ruined, so if anyone has any ideas of how I can get to sleep at a reasonable time and train my body back into a sleeping pattern, please let me know!
I’m going to go and post this blog and then create the thumbnail, and hopefully get these two videos edited as well as writing another post. Wish me luck!
Until next time,
Good morning / afternoon / evening everyone,
Today I have decided to write a different kind of post. I don’t usually write reviews but this book was definitely worthy of a review.
This is Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. Following a diary format, we follow the lives and stories of Francesca Howe and Sophie Collier who were best friends before Sophie made her disappearance.
After finding out Sophie’s remains had been found, Francesca made her way back to their seaside home town to try and figure out what happened the evening Sophie disappeared with help from Sophie’s brother.
I particularly enjoyed the writing style Claire used in this book to write the story and almost make you feel as though you were there in the town – experiencing the things Francesca was experiencing.
The book stays throughout as an eerie atmosphere and there are no moments of pure happiness and blue skies until the very end. The characters are particularly interesting and leave you with questions about them individually and their links towards Sophie’s disappearance. It almost leaves you becoming a detective in the story as there are so many possible links to what happened to Sophie that evening.
This book was a recommendation off one of my friends and I have managed to finish it before them, and was so intrigued by it I simply couldn’t put it down until my questions were answered.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a complete book worm and loves stories with different twists and turns to them, especially if you’re secretly a detective when it comes to story lines like these. You can find Claire through her Twitter by clicking here and finding the book here – Local Girl Missing for £6.18 currently!
This is definitely a different kind of post for me and I really hope you enjoyed it and find the book interesting if you buy it after reading this post!
Until next time,
Its been a while! A month in fact… Oops
I have been so so busy the past month with coursework for college but I have finally been signed off meaning I have so much more time to be able to dedicate towards not only my blog, but to my YouTube channel too. I am really looking forward to getting back into blogging and vlogging especially over the next month as I embark on a journey to Australia with my family.
Everything has been so very mish mash that its even been hard for me to keep up with myself but I am hoping to delve back into my two platforms as soon as possible. If you don’t follow me over on my YouTube channel, I’d really appreciate if you guys subscribed. You can click here to find it and see the mayhem which I call my life!
I have been really inspired by so many YouTubers recently, especially vloggers such as Zoe, Molly, and Ebony and have just been given that motivation I needed to get back into the swing of things.
I really hope to see you over here on my blog but also on my channel too. There will be vlogs hopefully going up all through July so i am very excited for the next month!
I do apologise for not being able to come over here and talk to you guys for such a long time but I really appreciate the patience! (There are now 94 of you, which I think is absolutely insane!)
Until next time,
~ Abi x
