The Morning Sidekick Journal Review

You know how much I love to read and write, so when I was asked if I wanted to have a look at a new type of journal I squealed in delight! The Morning Sidekick Journal Review was going to be my friend for a while. If you are more of a modern kind of person you can get the Morning Sidekick Journal pdf.

Initial thoughts – The Morning Sidekick Journal is amazing. Full of ideas and tips to help you get the most out of life.

The Morning Sidekick Journal Review

It’s beautiful to hold. Hardback with fantastic thick pages, the feel of a quality product. It has one of those great bookmarks, so you won’t lose your place and an elastic band to keep it closed. There is the option of having a pdf version as well, so you can fill in on your laptop, if that’s the better option for you.

Blog Tour: A Known Evil by Aidan Conway

Today I’m on the blog tour for A Known Evil by Aidan Conway. This time I’m sharing an extract with you instead of a review. I have read the book. Let’s just say you are in for a treat!

 

A Known Evil by Aidan Conway

 

Before I share with you an extract from A Known Evil, here is a little bit about the book:

Book Description

A serial killer stalks the streets of Rome…

A gripping debut crime novel and the first in a groundbreaking series, from a new star in British crime fiction. Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin.

A city on lockdown.
In the depths of a freakish winter, Rome is being torn apart by a serial killer dubbed The Carpenter intent on spreading fear and violence. Soon another woman is murdered – hammered to death and left with a cryptic message nailed to her chest.

A detective in danger.
Maverick Detective Inspectors Rossi and Carrara are assigned to the investigation. But when Rossi’s girlfriend is attacked – left in a coma in hospital – he becomes the killer’s new obsession and his own past hurtles back to haunt him.

A killer out of control.
As the body count rises, with one perfect murder on the heels of another, the case begins to spiral out of control. In a city wracked by corruption and paranoia, the question is: how much is Rossi willing to sacrifice to get to the truth? View Post

Favourite Shows From London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week is always spectacular, but you know it’s truly something special when you have Queen Elizabeth II sat in the front row! She attended the Richard Quinn show, but which other shows got everyone talking?

Here’s a rundown of our favourite catwalks from the event:

Burberry

On Day Two, Burberry brought colour to the catwalk! Fusing stand-out shades onto contemporary casual wear, Burberry retained its image as a forward-thinking, urban brand.

Key pieces that caught our eye included blush-pink sweaters, scarlet jackets and chunky lemon jumpers. For an extra splash of colour, Burberry showcased rainbow sparkles and multi-coloured gilets. This was creative director Christopher Bailey’s final show for Burberry, and he dedicated his last collection to: “the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ rights around the world”. Once most famous for its traditional beige checks and trench coats, Burberry’s intelligent use of colour and drive for hyper-modern street wear and athleisure clothing has made it one of London Fashion Week’s standout shows.

How can you get Burberry’s catwalk look? Start by choosing bright colours and bold prints. Select contemporary athleisure styles — such as bomber jackets and oversized sweatshirts — and never shy away from check prints and the streamlined silhouette of a vintage trench coat.

The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club Blog Tour

Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for the Fairvale Ladies Book Club. I suppose what drew me to this book was the clever use of the words “book club” in the title. Set around the late 1970’s in The Northern Territory. It was a different read to anything I’ve read before, but first here is a little about The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club by Australian author Sophie Green.
