February Book Videos

Welcome to this month’s book blog post! I was unable to do one last week as I had planned as I was missing a video as I was completely knackered and had no energy to film. So I decided to skip a week, film my wrap up over the weekend and post my overview of…

Book Review // July & August 2019

Today’s video is one in which I talk you through all of the books I read in July & August. I read 10 books in total and this was mainly caused by my summer break which happened right in the middle. And right smack in the middle of that break, we had a heat wave….

Book Haul 2019

Okay calm down: no I didn’t buy all these books in one go. No these are not all the books I bought in 2019 so far. These are all the books I bought in the past year. I last did a book haul in February 2018 and I thought it would be cool to keep…

Book Unhaul

Time for another declutter! I decided to not only declutter my makeup over the Christmas period, but also my bookshelves. It was definitely time for another clearout. I read some books that I know I don’t want to keep around and there are just some things that have been sitting around for years that just…

Book unhaul

I’ve been decluttering my life quite drastically these past few weeks. I already sorted through my makeup collection, my wardrobe and now it was time to sort through my books. I knew there were plenty of books that I wanted to get rid of and so this summer vacation I sat down and went through…

NARS inspired make up look

The reason for my reading make up books is to get inspiration for techniques that I might use myself. For some reason, pictures of celebrities never work for me because a) I don’t find it all that interesting and b) I don’t find make up looks used at red carpet events show me anything I…

Book review: Matthew Plampin – The Devil’s Acre

It’s getting colder by the day here in The Netherlands and lately all I have been wanting to do is to curl up with a cuppa and a good book. The book I just finished reading is Matthew Plampin’s The Devil’s Acre. Set in Victorian London and based on historical fact but with plenty of…

Tour of my Book Case

As you may know I like to read the occasional book or two. Instead of showing you what I’m currently reading I though it would be nice to show you the books I have. I have quite the collection. I think I’ve got over 600 books now. Most books I bought when I was a…

What I’m currently reading

As you all know, I don’t have much time to read, which is why I love books that I can read in small installments. Hence, why I’m sharing this book with you. This is QI’s The second book of General Ignorance by John Lloyd & John Mitchinson. Subtitled: Everything you think you know is still…

Shopping…

I did some online & off line shopping again and got some pretty neat things. First of all, there’s a few things I can scratch from my wish list. My Amazon order came in yesterday and I got two Disney DVDs to add to my collection! Here’s what I got: Left column: 1. A Bit…

Book review: Cormac McCarthy – The Road

If you don’t like depressive books, then this is not the book for you. If you like impressive books however, then I can highly recommend this one. The book won the Pulitzer Price in 2007 and is recommended by the one and only Oprah through her book club. The story is about an agonizing journey…

Book Review: Stephen Fry – The Fry Chronicles

I promised you yesterday that I would be blogging about music today, but unfortunately I haven’t finished updating and reorganizing my music just yet. I will make sure to do a post on that when I’m finished, which is hopefully tomorrow. Instead this post will feature a book review of the latest book by Stephen…

Book Review: Colum McCann – Let the Great World Spin

Just yesterday night I finally finished reading Colum McCann’s Let the Great World Spin. It took me quite some time to read as I had been so busy. It also took some time since it takes some time to figure out what the book is about and what direction it will go in. All in…
