Books I'll Never Be Bored Of

The only thing better than reading a book, is reading a book you loved and have read a million times. Right? Maybe not, but I'm definitely one of those people that loves re-reading books - so here are the ones that I'm never bored of.

A Little Princess by France Hodgson Burnett
One of my favourite children's films. I was surprised a few weeks ago when I finally decided to read this and the ending was different - but it didn't matter, I still loved it. This was such a quick read and I just know I'll pick it up time and time again.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
Another childhood favourite, and perhaps one of the strangest books I've read. I feel like every time you read it you can take away something new from it.

The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
I can't even begin to tell you how big a Harry Potter fan I became when I was seven and still am to this day. I have read every book in this series at least 10 times, if not more. I usually re-read them every summer. I love these books an insane amount - I even waited in line at midnight for the Deathly Hallows when I was 11 years old!

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Toklien
Another that I only read last month but I already want to re-read it. I loved following the adventure of Bilbo Baggins and his dwarf friends, particularly his scene with Gollum and the ring! I also was not prepared for the deaths of two of my favourite characters so I definitely need to read it again and cherish them forever.

The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer
I'm sure everyone was surprised when Chris Colfer (Kurt from Glee) decided to write a series of children's books - but I was hooked straight away. The Land of Stories manages to incorporate every fairy tale, rhyme and nursery song you could think of. Although it's a children's book, I loved this the first time I read it and I've re-read it a few times since. I'm counting down the days until book four is released!

What books do you never get bored of?

Kourtney Kardashian's Style

Kourtney Kardashian is by far my favourite of the family. Everything she says is hilarious and she has the best eye for interior design. I absolutely love her style as well. Everything she wears is perfection, and she moves effortlessly from boho to grunge. She also looks amazing in her smarter outfits - I love the pink coat in the first row and her crop top/high waisted skirt combo in the bottom! I'm taking a lot of inspiration from her right now - particularly the striped dresses and the pink duster coat.

What do you think of Kourtney's style?

P.S. Check out this amazing Buzzfeed article that proves that Kourtney is the best Kardashian.

Bedroom Details

I love interior posts so today I thought I'd share just a few pictures of my room. It recently got re-decorated last year and since then I've been trying to get it exactly the way I want it. I bought some mini cactae from Ikea a couple of weeks ago and they're so cute! I really want to get a few shelves and buy some more to put on them. 

My favourite part of my room is where my desk sits! I keep a few of my favourite books on my desk, with some nice pictures (and postcards from Paperchase) above it. I also love my heart shaped shelf which I've used to display my Marc Jacobs perfumes on. Next to that I've put up my 'ideal self' moodboard that I made in university and some pictures from my favourite designer collections.

Hope you enjoyed this little insight into my room - I thought it be fun to share because I know everyone loves a nosey into someone's home. If you've done similar posts please send me the link!

My Summer Reading List

As I've said in a few of my posts now I always try and make time to read lots of books throughout my Summer break from university, so I thought I'd show you the books that are next on my reading list. So far it's mainly made up of chick-lit - I love these kinds of books as they're so easy to read! I have such a huge list of books that I want to read but I'm trying to stick to the ones I've already got on my bookshelves. I've just started reading Techbitch and I cannot recommend it enough!

The other books on my list include:

  • Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
  • The Fame Game by Lauren Conrad
  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  • The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
  • I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk
  • Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
What's on your Summer reading list?

Another New Look Wishlist

I'm really loving New Look at the moment! I'm looking to add a few new things to my wardrobe since Scotland is finally getting some sun and the first on my list is a denim skirt. I used to wear these all the time when I was younger so I'm really happy they're making a comeback! I think it'd look cute with either the contrast t-shirt pictured or a nice breton style top. I also love this denim dress which could double as a pinafore over a crisp, white blouse - paired with these blush pink loafers. I think the kimono is perfect for Summer, with it's leaf print and bright green shades. Finally, I'm obsessed with this camel shade. I've been after a skirt like this for ages and it's only £18 - such a bargain!

The Kelpies Tour at The Helix

A couple of weeks ago one of my mum's cousins came over from Australia to visit everyone, so we had a few days planned out for him. We decided to go to the Kelpie Tour in Falkirk and it did not disappoint! I'm a bit of a history nerd so I was quite excited to go. The tour was around £7 and lasted 45 minutes. We got to learn some history about the Clydesdale horses, and about Duke and Barren - the two horses that the structures are based on. We even got to go inside one of the sculptures, which made paying for the tour really worth it! There's something really amazing about these sculptures, especially when you're looking up inside of it. I would really recommend this to everyone!

The only downside is that the visitor's centre hasn't opened yet, so there's only a small cafe to get a coffee or something to eat, and a temporary gift shop, but it has made me want to return when the whole park is complete!

What do you think of the Kelpies? Is it something you're interested in seeing?

Inspiration: Olivia Palermo

Today I thought I'd share one of my style inspirations - Olivia Palermo. Although she was the bitchy girl that no one liked in The City, she was always my favourite. I love her classic style, which sometimes reminds me of Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl. She's always seen on the Front Row, and she's one of the main reasons that I want to work in fashion (I was always so jealous when she worked at DVF and ELLE!). Whatever the weather, Olivia just gets it right.

Who's your style inspiration?
