Read in September 2018

14 October 2018

As I said yesterday I am a tad behind with these posts. So, yesterday you got what I read in August and today you get the September edition. I honestly can't pick my favourite read out of the 4 I read this month. They were all so good. M.J Arlidge is always a winner and I was so excited to pick up Riley Sagers new one. Michael Woods was a new author to me and it's definitely a winner. All in all, September was a great month for reading.

Read in August 2018

13 October 2018

Oh wow, I am so behind with my book roundup posts. Safe to say my body has been against me recently. I have, however, managed to get a fair bit of reading done. The downside to that is I have more reviews to write. So here is what I read in August which seems a lifetime ago.

Moonlight Melts Autumn Wax Melt Range

12 October 2018

I was kindly sent Moonlight Melts Autumn range and I am so in love with this company. I've followed them on twitter for a while and kept meaning to make an order but I could never decide which scents to get because they all sound amazing. This range is perfect for me though because I have been craving delicious autumn scents. It's one of the plusses of suddenly having to wear jumpers and freezing your ass off when you have to leave the house in the early hours.

IT Cosmetics CC Cream

10 October 2018

As you all know and are probably sick of hearing by now, I suffer with super dry skin. It makes finding a base that doesn't crack and look like scales extremely difficult. I saw a few people rave about IT cosmetics so I decided to give it a go and it may have been the best decision of my life. At £30 it is on the pricier side but it is definitely worth it. 

My Ideal Summers Day with Nivea

29 September 2018

This post is so damn late. Summer has been and gone and my body is fighting me every step of the way. I've either been extremely busy or having to spend days in bed recovering and it's really getting to me. I'm definitely feeling the guilt for not doing as much blogging as I would like. Also definitely feeling the pain and remembering that I do actually have a chronic illness.

Anyway, I was recently asked to join the Nivea Family and I obviously said yes. Nivea then asked me about my Ideal Summers Day and what products would fit in with that. The thing that immediately came to mind was a day at the beach sunbathing, swimming in the sea and eating all the delicious seaside foods. However, when I went to Italy I soon realised that as a wheelchair user the beach isn't all it's cracked up to be. Don't get me wrong, the sea is my happy place. I adore listening to the waves crash but sand and wheelchairs just don't mix.

An Authentic Experience by Kelly Wittmann

26 September 2018

I probably wasn't the best person to review this as I never read YA. I mainly stick to crime & thrillers so this was a big change. Kelly contacted me and said she was looking for disabled people to read and review her book so I agreed. I mean I should probably vary my reading habits and have a break from gory murders from time to time anyway. First of all, I love the cover and it definitely makes me want my pink hair back.

August 2018 Favourites

19 September 2018

My favourites from August mainly consist of skincare. Once again I've been overdoing it and crashing hard. I really need to slow down because I'm not sure how much more my body can put up with. Luckily, my baby brother has just started uni, which definitely makes me feel super old because I started 7 years ago. Where does the time go? However, it does mean that with him busy at uni my life will probably calm down because it's normally him I'm running around with.
