New Instagram Logo Inspired Nails #BEDM

So last week the new Instagram logo was revealed and the world lost its mind over it. The best meme I saw was how it looks like clip art from Word. Which it kinda does! It’s an ombre and when I saw Simply Nailogical and ohmygoshpolish both post videos I thought I’d give it a go myself!

For the ombre gradiant I used 5 colours.

Yellow- La Femme Beauty in Ultra Yellow

Orange- Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer in MAN GO Tango

Pink- Maybelline Rebel Bouquet in Vivid Rose

Purple- Maybelline Neons in Fuschia Fever

Blue- OPI in My Car Has Navy-gation

I was happy enough with the gradiant, I wish I had put more yellow on and better positioned the blue but it wasn’t too bad. To draw on the Instagram logo (MUCH harder than it looks, which is why they are kinda wonky), I used the Barry M Nail Art Pen in White. Here’s a look at the gradiant without the logo.

Are you a fan of the new Instagram logo? Or could you simply not give a toss? Let me know below!

A-Z Book Tag #BEDM

I spotted this tag the other day when Kate from Bibliophile Book Club posted it. She has links to other blog posts who've also done the tag. And since I'm a sucker for talking about books I thought I'd do the post myself!

 

Author You've Read the Most Books From

So I checked my Goodreads for this. Not counting children's books, my most read author is Alexander McCall Smith with 21 books. Next was Marian Keyes (11) and J.K. Rowling (10, though if you count her Robert Galbraith books it brings it up to 13!). My most read authors including children's books are Enid Blyton (I've 90 on Goodreads, it's probably more though!), Terry Deary (of Horrible Histories fame, 26 books) and Jacqueline Wilson (21).

 

Best Sequel Ever

If you count A God in Ruins as a sequel to Life After Life then I'd probably pick that. But seeing as it's not really a sequel but more a sister novel, then I'd either go with The Likeness by Tana French (I enjoyed it much more than In the Woods) or A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab (It did a lot of world building and preparing for the epic showdown to come for the final book in the trilogy, like a lot of other 2nd books do, but it was a great story on it's own and didn't feel 'filler' to me, like most 2nd books in series do!)

 

Currently Reading

Oh, while I managed to finish 19 books last month, I haven't finished one book so far this month and I'm like an epic juggler. I'm currently reading Gut by Giulia Enders (audio), Chicken With Plums by Marjane Satrapi (graphic novel), and Euphoria by Lily King (for a book club), as well as a slew of others ones that I have 'on hold' for various reasons. I can never read just one book at a time, I often have several on the go.

current

 

Drink of Choice While Reading

Usually water, I'm not a tea drinker and if I drink coffee while reading, I usually forget about it and it goes cold or else I'm afraid I'll spill it on my book!

 

E-Reader or Physical Book

I prefer physical books, I just like having it in my hand. I do like reading e-books too though, I read a lot on there as most of my review copies are e-copies and I like the fact that I always have a book (or several) on me on my phone, in case I ever get stuck waiting somewhere and need something to read.

 

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in School

Oh this is a tough one! Possibly Levi from Fangirl. Like Cath, I’m an introvert and Levi seemed sweet.

 

Glad You Gave This Book a Chance

Watermelon by Marian Keyes, I had always dismissed Marian as 'just' chick lit and reading this book (and the rest in the series) opened up my eyes not to be a snob and introduced me to a family that I loved reading about. Also in terms of reading genres that I don't usually read, I'm super glad I read Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch (I picked it up thinking it was to do with the rivers of London, but it introduced me to urban fantasy) and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (made me realise that sci-fi is something I could enjoy too). Lesson learnt, always give something a go as you might be pleasantly surprised!

Hidden Gem

sweet as caneI never know what to pick for these kind of topics! Anyway, I   decided to go for a book I’ve read that has under 100 ratings on Goodreads and that’s Sweet As Cane, Salty as Tears by Ken Wheaton. It’s about 50 year old Katherine, a Louisiana native living in New York, who has to go back home after leaving 30 years ago after her siser dies. It’s sort of a coming of age story for someone who’s older, trying to come to terms with the past but figure out the future. I wrote a full review which you can find here.

 

Important Moment in Reading

Getting back into reading during final year of college. While I definitely reading during college (I even signed up for library when on work placement), it wasn’t until beginning of 2010 that I started paying attention to reading and making goals for myself. Another big moment was starting to blog about what I read, which started as a round up of what I read in January 2013. I don’t know why I didn’t blog about reading before then, I just don’t think it occured to me! Even when I started I didn’t think of myself as a book blogger, it was just a way to document what I had read. And probably using Goodreads too! It’s definitely helped me keep track of what I want to read and look for better recommendations.

 

Just Finished

The Idiot Brain by Dean Burnett. I showed on my A Day in the Life blog post that I was reading it and said I’d hope to finish by the end of the day and I did!

 

Kind of Books You Won’t Read

I try not to say I won’t try something, as I have been surprised in the past when I’ve tried sci-fi and fantasy. I’m not a big fan of classics but I won’t rule them out. I don’t really read romance like Mills and Boons and there’s always a section in libraries for just Westerns which baffles me. But that’s not to say in the future I wouldn’t give these a go! Never say never.

 

Longest Book

According to my Goodreads, the longest book I’ve read is The Likeness by Tana French with 698 pages. If I remember correctly The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber was longer but I never finished it fully. The book that felt the longest however was Tess of d’Ubervilles. The book itself was 508 pages but oh boy did it feel like double the length!

 

Major Book Hangover

I’d probably go with A God in Ruins, which I read last June. The ending just astounded me! Though in terms of having a big fatigue after reading, I’d say the end of 2013, I managed to get 100 books but I was just nearly over it all by the end! So I’ve learnt not to push myself.

a god in ruins

 

Number of Book Cases You Own

Just the one sadly. And only because my friend bought and decorated one for me! I can’t even fit all my books on it (I could but then I won some and I’ll need to rejig everything to make it all fit). I can’t wait to have a house of my own, purely for all the book cases I’ll own. Wall to wall, ceiling to floor!

 

One Book You’ve Read Multiple Times

I reread a lot of books as a child, especially my Enid Blyton and Harry Potter books. I reread The Enchanted Wood for BookTube-A-Thon 2013. The only other book I’ve reread as an adult (that I remember anyway) was The Great Gatsby which I reread May 2013.

gatsby

 

Preferred Place to Read

I’ll read anywhere; public transport, in waiting rooms, standing in a long queue in a shop, in someone else’s house while waiting for them to get ready, at the beach, at the dinner table. My preferred place though is in my bed, it’s when I’m most comfortable.

 

Quote That Inspires

A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination

Caitlin Moran, Moranthology

 

Reading Regret

Any time I’ve wasted reading a book I hated. Sometimes I will still try power through a book but I’m much more like to just stop. There’s not enough time to read everything I want to read! Also I regret not picking up To Kill a Mockingbird sooner than I did. I only read it last year but I had mentioned in my 2013 Reading Resolutions and it still took me 2 years to get around to it.

 

Series You Need to Finish

Oh there’s a few! But the big one at the moment is the Lunar Chronicles series. I need to read Winter, it came out in November so hopefully I’ll read it soon. I guess you could say Winter is Coming…!

winter real cover

Three All Time Faves

Only 3?! Not fair! Stiff by Mary Roach, A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson and Harry Potter series (that’s right, I’m cheating!)

                                         Unapologruntgetic Fangirl

I LOVE Mary Roach’s books, they’re really entertaining and great non-fiction books. Even if you don’t ‘do’ non-fiction these are worth a try.

Very Excited For This Release More Than Others

Grunt by Mary Roach (yes, the 3rd answer in a row to mention her!). I mentioned in my 2016 Releases Post that it was the one I was most looking forward to. But since then there’s been other releases announced so I think I need to do another post.

 

Worst Bookish Habit

Reading too many books at the same time. As well as buying too many books. Both physical and ebooks. I need to try get through the books I own!

 

X Marks the Spot- Start From Top Left Hand Corner of Book Shelf Until 27th Book

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Your Latest Purchase

A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. It’s for the Rick O’Shea book club this month.

 

Zzzz Snatcher Book (the book that kept you up way too late)

Last book to keep me reading and reading was The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson. I didn’t put it down!

the art of being normal

And that’s my A-Z! Thanks again to Kate for bringing it to my attention and if you do the tag too, let me know below so I can check it out!

A Day in the Life #BEDM

Unlike some people, I don't have a set day or routine. At the moment, due to a family emergency, I'm back home helping out for this week. I should have really documented yesterday to write up for today but alas, you're going to see my day so far!



This morning I woke up and went to my aunt's house to help mind my cousin for a couple of hours. I played this Elton John CD on my way there and had some epic car-aoke! While at my aunt's I played with my cousin and read for a small bit when she was busy playing in her own world. After, I went to creperie with my aunt, cousins and sister and I ate my crepe before realising I didn't take a picture! I did take a picture of my yummy latte though. 


After my sister and I got home, we played with the cats for a bit. I used her Snapchat picture as it turned out the best, as you can see the cats were loving the weather. As was my sister and I so we decided to go to the beach for a bit! The sky was lovely and blue except for those fluffy white clouds.


While at the beach I read some more of my book, painted my toenails blue (Barry M shade found here in this Pantone Colour of the Year post), squealed a bit when I dipped my feet into the water, got into a splashing contest with my sister despite the fact neither of us had spare clothes with us and then got my sister to do my hair in a French plait. She says she doesn't know how to do it on other people but I think you'll find it looks pretty good!

After spending some time at the beach real life started calling again so I did some food shopping, put out washing on the line (well my sister did for me!) and put on another wash, caught up on some emails and chatted to a friend about how her week was so far. And of course I wrote this post! I was just going to write up half this post and add in what I'll do over next few hours but I have a headache (I just had to take the plait out *sadface*) and the rest of my evening won't be that interesting. Cooking, washing, finish that book, write up a NetGalley review and listening to the newest episode of No Such Thing As a Fish! That is, if I don't fall asleep before then as I'm quite drowsy. Probably due to the heat, sure we're never happy here!

Scaffolding by Seamus Heaney #BEDM

Hello! It doesn't look like I'll be able to do all the days this year in Blog Every Day in May, though that's ok! I'm still going to try and do as much as possible. Monday's topic was Food Glorious Food, here's a link to my most popular food post, the Pig Cake. Yesterday's topic was museums and for BEDM 2014 I did a post on my favourite museums which you can find here

Today's topic is Poetry. I liked studying English and poetry in school though since then I haven't read much new poetry. If you have any suggestions, please leave them below! I was at a wedding at the weekend and the reflection before the end was Scaffolding by Seamus Heaney. 

“Scaffolding” by Seamus Heaney

Masons, when they start upon a building,
Are careful to test out the scaffolding;
Make sure that planks won’t slip at busy points,
Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.
 And yet all this comes down when the job’s done
Showing off walls of sure and solid stone.
 So if, my dear, there sometimes seem to be
Old bridges breaking between you and me
 Never fear. We may let the scaffolds fall,
Confident that we have built our wall.

It's a poem Heaney wrote after a disagreement with his wife, about how even if scaffolding breaks, the wall is still solid and made to last (at least that's what I got from it!). It resonated with me though on another level, that it can be applied to friendships too. That even if we sometimes lose touch (So if, my dear, there sometimes seem to be/Old bridges breaking between you and me) that it doesn't matter. As long as the love and support is still there, our friendship is still solid (Never fear. We may let the scaffolds fall/Confident that we have built our wall). I have a habit of hiding away when I'm not feeling my best, so this (along with the fantastic day and night I had with friends at the wedding) was just perfect for me right now and really brightened my mood. Below is a video of Heaney reciting the poem.

Where I’ve Been in Europe and Where I Want to Go #BEDM

Today’s Blog Every Day in May topic is Europe, as today is Europe Day. So I thought I’d share some of the places I’ve been and some of the places I’d like to go to one day. This isn’t so much where to go in these places (some were so long ago I wouldn’t know what would be still there) but just sharing some of my experiences.

London, England

I love London. I was born there, lived there for a few of my first years before moving to Ireland. Since 2001, I’ve been to London 19 times! At least, from what I can remember and count. I wasn’t there in 2003, 2007 and 2008 but in 2014 I managed to rack up 4 seperate visits! I’ve shared some of my trips here in posts 2011 London Trip Part 1 and Part 2, BT Art Box 2012, 2014 Day Trip to London, Darkness Into Light 2014, St. Patrick’s Day 2014. Over the years I’ve seen a lot: typical tourist attractions (London Tower, Big Ben, London Eye, Covent Garden, Camden Markets, Leicester Square ), musicals (The Lion King, Chicago, Billy Elliot twice), museums and galleries (Natural History Museum, Science Museum, V&A, British Museum, London Transport Museum, Museum of Brands and Packaging, British Film Museum, Greenwich Royal Observatory, Maritime Museum, Saatchi Galley, Tate Modern), various parks, restuarants, shopping centres, pubs and bars. I’ve stayed with friends, family and in hotels. I’ve gone to so many of my relatives celebrations and parties. Some of my favourite experiences were Harry Potter studios in Watford, ice skating at Natural History museum with family, Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park (2011 and 2014), Jack the Ripper walking tour, afternoon tea in Oxo Tower with my boyfriend for my 24th birthday, speed boat tour of Thames, a masquerade screening of Labyrinth at Prince Charles Cinema and a tour of the closed Underground Station Aldwych/Strand. I’ve seen so much (sometimes going certain places more than once), but it’s barely even scratching the surface of what London has to offer. There’s so much more I want to see!

London

British Film Museum (2013); Me at Abbey Road (2005); Aldwych Underground Tour (2013), Me at Harry Potter Studio Tour (2012); Big Ben and Houses of Parliament from London Eye (2013)

 

Prague, Czech Republic

I’ve had the pleasure to go Prague twice. Once in 2004 on school tour and once in 2008 with two of my university housemates. The first time was February and it was snowing. The second time was Easter and it was so warm and sunny. It was lovely to see those two sides of Prague! When over with the school, we stayed in a hotel that served horrible dinners (we used to hoarde items from the breakfast buffet in our mini fridges to eat later after dinner). Prague has a such a fantastic vibe, it’s so accessible by foot. One of the highlights was a free walking tour, it was a local student who was running it to practice their English. Another highlight was making my first snow angel! I would love to go back again some day.

Spain

I went to Spain in the summer of 2005, with a friend and her family. We stayed in Lloret de Mar, a town on the Costa Brava. What sticks out most in my memory of that holiday is sudoku, the extreme heat and not being able to sleep, the pebbly beach, the very laid back vibe and buying this swishy red dress. One of the days we went to Barcelona. My friend and I went exploring on our own while her family went and did their own thing. All I really remember is walking along the Los Ramblas. I have no photos of this trip, except one done in a photobooth with my friend. There might be more around but I don’t think I have any. I feel like I didn’t properly explore Spain and looking back I really should have visited my sister when she was doing work placement there. I must go back!

 

Rome, Italy

After finishing school in 2006, I went on holiday with a group of friends. We went to London, then Rome and finished in Paris. In one way it was like interrailing but we flew everywhere instead (it was the age of really cheap Ryanair flights, the 4 flights was about 160 Euro if my memory is right!). While staying in Italy, we stayed in a camp site outside the city who had a shuttle bus to the train station. While we did do some tourist attractions (Colosseum, Pantheon, Vatican City, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain), the main things that stick out in my head is all the cats at the Roman Forum, my boyfriend and friend having a bet to see who could haggle the best, drinking absinthe, the electricity going off in the chalet while I was mid shower and my boyfriend and I getting dressed in the morning only to turn around see what we matched (same colour t-shirt, shorts and shoes). It made us look like we’d planned it รก la Posh and Becks!

Rome

Paris, France

When we left Rome (and after I threw up in the airport in Rome because it was filthy disgusting), we landed in Paris. We stayed in a not so great hotel (half of us got bedbugs), tried to speak French to the locals to get shut down by them responding in English, went to the Eiffel Tower at night time, went to the Louvre, had a man serenade me by singing a song about the Mona Lisa at me as I walked up the Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, walked around Montmarte, went to Le Chat Noir, went to a market and spent a day in Disneyland! And because it was the beginning of September most schools had gone back so Disneyland was quietish. As with Rome, there’s so much more we didn’t see so I’d like to go back again and get a better impression of the place.

The happiest place on earth

 

Europe Wanderlust List

There’s so many places I still want to visit in in Europe (if I hadn’t gone to London so much over the years I probably would have seen more of Europe). I would love to go to The Netherlands, which I especially want to do after seeing CherrySue’s snaps and Stone Travel’s blog recap of their journey. Germany is another place, Berlin just seems to cool and I want to see Bavaria. And for a long time I’ve loved Scandinavia, when I 11 and was on summer holidays, I gave myself a summer project to find out more about the countries in Scandinavia (I think it was from reading Pippi Longstocking books!). So I would be more than happy to go to one or all of those countries! And there are so many other places in Europe as well, I would only love to do some interrailing!

 

Of course, all this talk of places in Europe and there’s is so much more I’ve seen. Manchester, Liverpool, Belfast, Oxford as well as many places in Ireland. I did a post 2 years ago talking about where I’ve been in Ireland and then I did a post in November for Blog Every Day in November showing some of my favourite photos I’ve taken of Ireland. I’d love to hear where you’ve been in Europe!

Pantone Colour of the Year Rose Quartz and Serenity Nail Polish Picks #BEDM

I love when Pantone release a new colour of the year, I love the hype of other sites releasing beauty and fashion picks. 2014’s colour was Radiant Orchid and I had a post up with Essence’s polish. Last year was Marsala and I also showed the Essence polish for that too. This year the Pantone Colour of the Year wasn’t just one colour but two. A baby pink called Rose Quartz and a periwinkle blue called Serenity. I waited to see if Essence would bring out special polishes for both but so far they haven’t. So I set about trying to gather some polishes that do match up. I watched JessFace90’s video on this and went by her findings on how Serenity is more periwinkle than baby blue (which I thought it was at first as well). This is what I came up with. Some I bought so they’re still in shops. Others are from what I already had so they might not be in shops anymore. But either way you should find some in the shops now.

Rose Quartz

And because I like matching pairs here’s a picture of the brands that have both of the colours

Pantone Serenity and Rose Quartz Colour Color of the Year Nail Polish Picks Make Up Gallery, Barry M, Essence, PS, Rimmel, Nails Inc

As you can see there’s a mix of shades, not all of them are perfect but a lighter baby blue (like the Essence one) will work just as well as the others. I say my favourites for how close they are to the shade swatches online are the Barry M and Nails Inc polishes.

I plan on doing some posts with different looks (ombre, water marblings, polka dots etc), so if there’s any of the shades above that you’d really like to see or any particular type of design you’d like let me know. Better still, if you have any polish picks that I didn’t mention above leave me a comment!

PS polish in found in Penneys/Primark, Make Up Gallery is Poundland/Dealz make up stand and The Limited polish was from Marks and Spencers.

Favourite Book Covers #BEDM

Every Tuesday at 7pm GMT there’s a book blogger chat, hosted by Becky from Becky Bedbug on her Twitter. There’s always a theme and often after the chat it’s still on my mind and I’ve always half thought of doing a blog post about the topic. This week the topic was book covers so I thought I’d shade my favourite ones!

The Great Gatsby F.Scott Fitzgerald Yellow Cover

 

This is probably my favourite cover of all time! I don’t own a physical copy of this book but I love the yellow background, the suave relaxing character and especially the Y being used as a martini glass!

 

 

 

 

The Great Gatsby Art Deco Penguin Series Coralie Bickford-Smith

 

While we’re on The Great Gatsby, I LOVE this art deco F. Scott Fitzgerald hardback series. It’s designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith and it just screams class and decadence.

 

 

 

alice in wonderland penguin clothbound edition flamingos Coralie Bickford-Smith

 

 

The Penguin Clothbound Classics are GORGEOUS, all of them! Of course I’m choosing the flamingo covered Alice in Wonderland as my favourite. The series is also designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith

 

 

 

 

the fox and the star Coralie Bickford-Smith

 

 

While I’m mentioning Coralie Bickford-Smith, I might as well show you her own book, The Fox and the Star, which is just stunning. I could stare at the cover for hours and I’m sure the inside is just as beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

The Kitchen Magpie Book Cover James Steen Mark Ecob

 

When I reviewed this book I mentioned how much I like this cover and I still love it. I think it’s so smart and the orange colour is beautiful. It’s designed by Mark Ecob and he’s designed loads of other covers I’ve seen recently and enjoyed. He also did the other Magpie series covers which are also fab though this still stays my favourite.

 

 

 

 

1984 Nineteen Eighty Four George Orwell Redacted Cover Penguin Books

 

 

 

This cover of Ninteen Eighty Four by George Orwell is so so smart. I don’t even need to say anything else!

 

 

 

 

 

Look Who's Back Timur Vermes Book Cover

 

 

Another clever book cover is Look Who’s Back by Timur Vermes. When you look at this book, you know straight away who this book is about. If you want to know more about it, you can check out my book review here.

 

 

 

 

Love Nina by Nina Stibbe Book Cover

 

 

This Love, Nina cover is just so pretty, it is just steeped in nostalgia! I love the colour scheme and how this almost has that look of an old photo. It makes me crave Toffos!

 

 

 

 

shrill by Lindy West Book Cover

 

 

The title of this book is Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman and this cover design is perfect! I want to check it out for a number of reasons and the cover is definitely one of those, the clever design makes me think the book itself will be clever.

 

 

 

 

vinegar girl by Anne Tyler Book Cover

 

 

Finally I’m going to end on another beautiful design. This is for Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler, a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew which is out next month. Ever seen seeing this cover I’ve fallen in love with it!

 

 

 

And that’s it for now. I’m sure ther are many, many, many more covers that I like. I might do another post once I have come across them. Let me know down below which book covers you love.
