This week I’ve finished reading Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey, and a review is scheduled to go live tomorrow morning!

I have since moved onto a new book called Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I’m not too far into the book but it appears to be a very nice, sweet read. It’s about young Madeline who, due to an illness involving very serious allergies, is unable to leave her house.

She has, in the first few pages so this isn’t a spoiler, become attracted to the boy next door and I’m expecting that this book is going to be a YA novel about how love will always find a way. I may be proved wrong but we will just have to wait and see. Even though I feel like this may be a bit predictable, I’ve had a few laugh-out-loud moments and am really enjoying it so far! I’ve also just found out that it is being adapted into a movie and is due to be released on the 18th of August in Ireland! Don’t you just love when a book you’re reading is due to be a movie soon? It almost always means that the book is great!

I’m currently writing the same assignment I was talking about last week. I’m 2/5 of the way through it thanks to a lot of time and effort put in over the weekend and I just cannot wait until it is finished. It is a heartbreaker!!

I also, when this bloody assignment is out of the way, want to work on a blog post schedule whereby I have regular posting days and can stick to that. For example, I always try to post a Sunday Currently blog post but would love to have that commitment to other days of the week too!

In the past two days I’ve been listening to a lot of instrumental, movie soundtrack type of music because that genre of music always helps me to focus. I also really like the song that won the Eurovision last night but think that the sister, the girl who wrote the song, sings it much better than the brother, the guy who performed the song! Have a listen below and see what you think! Is it just me or does she have a hint of Norah Jones about her voice?!

S M E L L I N G

This week its salt water, and fresh sea air! I’m at the west coast and I’m walking up to the beach every now and then to take breaks from my work! Nothing beats that smell!

H O P I N G

That this next 3/5 of the assignment will be a doddle! Then I will be celebrating being finally finished my Post Grad! (After already doing two Post Grads you’d swear I wasn’t educated enough!!!)

Currently in comfy gym gear! Nothing spectacular at all I’m afraid!

I am loving the fact that I have a mobile home to escape to each weekend. I love getting away from the rat race, and away from the city; I am much calmer when I am surrounded by nature and am so grateful to have a place by the beach at my disposal! It’s a very special kind of anticipation, when you know that you have somewhere beautiful to go at the weekends; it makes the working week just that little bit more tolerable!

I am feeling very excited! There are lots of fun things on the horizon for me and I cannot wait! Not only is the upcoming weekend the end of my Post Grad, it is also my friend’s Hen Party and I cannot wait! It’s so exciting when one of your friends is getting married and I love how there’s a big girls weekend away to celebrate! I won’t post any details here today about the plans because it’s all a big surprise but I am really looking forward to it!

As well as that I have a pretty epic holiday planned for the summer. I am going over to Himself in Alaska for two weeks and then we will be spending a few days in Vancouver – my favourite city in the world – before coming back to Ireland together! I was there two years ago with my friends and am so excited about going back!

The countdown is on – only 36 days until I am getting on a plane to see Himself after four and a half long ass months!!

I’ve not been watching anything this weekend except for the word count on my assignment! It feels something like this:

I hope everyone has a wonderful week – make sure you plan something to look forward to! It makes all the difference!

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck by Sarah Knight, The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick, and My Life Goals Journal by Andrea Hayes 

W R I T I N G

Ok! So I’ve started the book My Life Goals Journal by Andrea Hayes and it’s a journal where you really have to sit down and think about yourself and the goals you want to set! 


Yesterday I bought myself a new writing journal (as if I really needed another one) and I sat down to work on the first few tasks in the book. I’ve made lists about the type of person I feel I am; e.g., a teacher, a sister, a daughter…etc. And I’ve written down where I would like to see myself this time next year. My next task is to write down the words I want to identify with! I am happiness, I am fun, I am successful! I’m excited to see how this book impacts my life! It’s not just a once off book, it’s a year long project and I’m seriously excited about it! 

L I S T E N I N G

I’ve been listening to Liz Gilbert’s podcast Big Magic, very encouraging and inspirational! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book and get myself psyched up to write my first novel! 

S M E L L I N G

Smoked Bacon! Someone is cooking and it smells amazing! 

H O P I N G

That I get back on track for Slimming World! I’ve been very off track the last two weeks so I need to get my mojo back and get rid of the extra pounds! 

W E A R I N G

My Law of Attraction top and tracksuit bottoms! Such lovely positive loungewear! 

L O V I N G

Today! It’s been such a lovely Sunday!  

W A N T I N G

A sun holiday! How amazing is this; a friend of mine won a sun holiday worth €1300 the other day… her boyfriend had won the exact same prize just two weeks earlier! Absolutely phenomenal! 

N E E D I N G

 For someone to cook for me! Today has been a total veg day!  We’ve played three games of Scrabble! My brain  is absolutely fried after it and I have zero energy for cooking dinner! 

F E E L I N G

Very chilled out and also very in control of my life! Even though I am totally overwhelmed with work and other commitments, I feel like the books I’m reading are very much keeping my head above water! 

W A T C H I N G

We’ve watched Hacksaw Ridge, Moana, and Storks all whilst playing scrabble. Of all three movies I must say I enjoyed Storks the most! I’m a huge war movie fan and even though Hacksaw Ridge was good,  and Andrew Garfield gave an outstanding performance, as a whole I thought it was only ok! 

Until next Sunday!
