Three Films


Unkategorised

I used to spend the majority of my pocket money on DVDs. Nothing thrilled me more than going to ASDA and buying a film I’ve wanted to purchase for forever before it finally was priced at £4. I still own every one of these films and could never ever imagine getting rid of the likes […]

12/52: From Rome With Love


Kath's Bookshelf

I started my bank holiday Monday with the last couple of chapters of From Rome With Love by Jules Wake; the twelfth book I’ve read this year. I decided to challenge myself to reading fifty-two books this year (which I’m also documenting over on my Goodreads account) and, after a few relatively heavy reads and […]

11/52: Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda


Kath's Bookshelf

Today I finished the eleventh book of the year; with teary eyes and that “WHY DOES THIS BOOK HAVE TO END” feeling in my heart. I’ve officially got three joint favourite books of the year so far; The Hate U Give, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and now, Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by […]

10/52: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine


Kath's Bookshelf

This year I’ve decided to have a go at reading fifty-two books before 2019 (while documenting it over on my Goodreads account). Yesterday I was horrified to see Goodreads terrifyingly labelled me “1 book behind schedule.” Today I finished the very popular Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Now, I sit smugly, having […]

Review: My ASOS 4505 Leggings


The Adventures of a Kathlete

ASOS is my go-to site to order new workout gear from so, when they announced their very own fitness line (named ASOS 4505), you can imagine my excitement. Upon release, I headed straight over to ASOS to check out the range and struggled to add just the one item to my basket. I regretfully managed it […]

Three Books: For Mother’s Day


Kath's Bookshelf

Since it’s World Book Day (one of the best days of the year for book nerds like me), a book haul is most certainly due. I fell in love with reading back when I was much younger (but not much smaller) and in my mum’s bed as she read books such as The Faraway Tree […]

4/52: The List of my Desires


Kath's Bookshelf

Yesterday evening I closed The List of my Desires by Gregoire Delacourt and rated my fourth book of the year over on my Goodreads account. Yes, I’ve finished four books so far this year! And, yes, I’m more than a bit smug, as was obvious when I immediately messaged my brother to boast while he […]

3/52: Turtles All the Way Down


Kath's Bookshelf

Upon deciding to read fifty-two books this year─which I am documenting over on my Goodreads account as well as the blog─I knew John Green’s new novel, Turtles All the Way Down had to be one of the first books I read. I’ve been a huge fan, like a lot of people, since reading The Fault […]

How to Stop Time by Matt Haig


Kath's Bookshelf

After reading and loving and always recommending Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive, I have been meaning to read one of his works of fiction for a long time. Last year I s-u-c-k-e-d at reading and so, inevitably, this didn’t happen… until this month. I have finished 2017 on a fictional high (and ready to take on […]

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 Review


The Adventures of a Kathlete

It’s become a tradition for me to buy new running trainers once a year in late August or early September. I begin really focusing on my Great South Run time; a run that takes place in Portsmouth in October. Although my last two trainers don’t need chucking yet, because I run a lot, they get […]
