What happens in London – Kristina Adams

I am always a bit hesitant reading a follow up novel 1 will it be as good and 2 will it taint the characters you loved in the first book? 

I can honestly say this is just as good as the first book. You also could read this as a stand alone if you wanted but I would advice reading the first one as you get more of a feeling of their perspective andpersonalities. 

It does leave on a small cliffhanger but one most readers can cope with. You not going to get a deep story but I would categorize this as a teenage novel like geek girl so it ticks all the boxes in that type of fiction. So if you looking for a good old fashioned light read then this for you. I have loved both books in the series and have downloaded a prequel to read.  

Thanks to the author for allowing me to read this for an unbiased review. 
The real world 

This was a little prequel. It’s short and sweet with basically a chapter but free from a link in the previous book I read. 


What Happens in New York – Kristina Adams

For a novel in women’s fiction you don’t get silly characters for a change which I loved or and hectic storyline that is bizarre. A great simple story that flows well and not too weak either. Ideal for a light read but still a good enough story to keep you entertained while reading. I loved the characters and the story. Can be suitable for young adults as it’s similar feel to the geek girl series but without the annoying characters. I preferred this novel to be honest. 

Thanks to the author for a copy to review. Looking forward to the second one. 

Men’s Leather Shoes


5 out of 5

These handmade leather oxfords shoes are an excellent buy. Soft luxury leather that are comfortable and well made. As high a standard of an Italian leather made shoes. 

Comes in standard black or brown but the company does do a few other styles. My father was very happy that I gave them to him as a gift.

The soles of the shoes are also a good quality and not smooth like some shoes in this style so you will not find yourself ruffing up the soles. 

Excellent quality and comfortable. 

Fox Scarf


5 out of 5

I love this scarf and tempted to have it for my self. Larger than I thought it would be and very soft wool used. Arcrilic aterial used which is a shame but it does feel like genuine wool. The beautiful scarf has the head at one end and the tail at the other. Suitable for an adult or a long scarf for a child.

Totoro design socks

5 out of 5

These are not the cheapest at £19.99 at full price but they are now at about £13. soa little better. They are well made and no nasty string to get caught in your toes like some cheap brands. Warm and soft with a cute design. Thick wool but not to thermal thickness. Ideal with this cold weather we having at the moment. This design is called Totoro which is anyone a fan of anime will know the large white cat. Supposed to be a Christmas theme but this design can easily be worn through the year. There is also xmas Raindeer…

And xmas tree…
I paid £6.58 so had them a little cheaper but would have been happy paying a little more for the quality and that it is also Totoro. Big fans of anime films here especially Studio Ghibli films. 

A very comfy over the shoulder bag


I was looking for a nice bag suitable for all kinds of use. With a large family someone is always looking for a bag to use for school trips or to put clothes/toiletries in to stay around a friends and as the only female here,this over the shoulder bag is perfect for all of us.
This is made of a good quality material which is all waterproofed inside so I’m happy to know that none of our phones or tablets are going to get ruined.

It does actually have quite a lot of room inside, I have a 10 inch tablet and that fits in nice and easy. I love the size of the bag and it’s kind of triangle shape to it. Personally I have used this instead of my handbag for when we recently went away for a couple of days. It was so much easier for me to put my purse, phone & make up bag in and have this just on my back instead of carrying my handbag or have it keep falling off my shoulder…such an easier solution.

It is extremely lightweight so my back and shoulders weren’t hurting anymore than usual. Wearing a bigger type of rucksack would not be an option for me.

It has 2 compartments inside the bag, as well as the nice little zipped up one which is ideal for putting your keys, phone in as you can get to them a lot quicker.

The shoulder strap is really nicely padded so it won’t start digging into you. You can wear it across either shoulder as there are 2 buckles at the bottom of the bag for if you preferred it on one side to the other.

Its such a versatile bag and dosnt get in the way of anything your doing. Although I’m letting the male lot in the house use it too, they most definitely won’t be using it for mounting biking -which one does, and this bag  would be great for as it really does stay out the way,but I don’t want it to get dirty!!

Panda Hoodie(part 3)

Panda Hoodie – Reviews Are Us
3 out of 5

Okay new update. This has now been downgraded to a three. The Pom pom ears fell off during the wash

This is going to be my first review for my daughter. Looks great in the picture. Usually £21.40 but I had a discount and received it for £10.57 so just over half price. I will update this on packaging and quality.
Just trying it out now as my daughter has a tendency to find her clothes itchy once the tags are off. 

Okay she had worn it over the weekend and no scratching or wanting to take if off so a thumbs up from her. I took off the one point for the fleece. It has a nylon/polyester feel that could have been better for the price being paid but it’s finished off nicely and looks great so still worth the money.
