Just Listen By Sarah Dessen

Hi Guys!!

I apologize for not posting anything in the last couple of days. Work has been super crazy and the mid-season sale is approaching this weekend at NEXT (I had to get up a 5am yesterday morning to start my shift at 6.30, walking to work at night :/ and I was super tired when I got home.)

So I was looking through my mini version library in my tiny room and I thought I would do a review of a book that I have had since I was 15 years old.

The picture above is only a third of all the books I have in my tiny little room and the amount of books I actually have, I really want a bigger bedroom. 
Just Listen is by an American Author Sarah Dessen. Sarah is one of my most favorite authors ever and I have at least all of her books. She writes stories about girls in High School and dealing with being a teenager. Her books are also set in her hometown where she grew up. 
Just Listen is about a teenage model Annabel, who's life in the public seems fine but no one knows when the doors are…

ขนม (Thai Desserts)

Image
So recently my mum brought home some Thai desserts and when I was little I was slightly afraid of them due to how it is made and they looked a little odd.

The first dessert  is called  Khanom Thuay ขนมถ้วย (Thai Coconut Custard) this is considered as street food and it is very easy to eat. It is made with coconut milk custard, it is shaped as mini sized bowls and they are lovely. It has a very soft texture when you take the first bit bite, it has a taste of coconut and I think it tasted like a crispy biscuit roll.








The second dessert is called Khanom Chun ขนมชั้น (Thai Jelly). This dessert is the layered dessert in Thailand and is considered to be used in special ceremonies. This is made out of sugar, coconut milk and flour and set to harden. This dessert taste similar to the one above but I definitely prefer this one.



There are tons of other desserts that I want to try and hopefully I will get the time to find them and write them on here. 
I have been thinking of taking a trip to Thai…

The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance

Image
Ever wanted to read a book that doesn't have a sexy vampire and an innocent human who falls in love with one. If your interested what is under the sheets and involves a vampire then this book is for you.

If Fifty Shades of Grey wasn't your cup of tea or you wanted to level up after reading Twilight then how about some other sexy romance novels that you want to sink your fangs in.

This book review is The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance.

The Mammoth Book series are short stories from a collection of talented authors filling the pages with exciting and thrilling encounters between people. There are different types of themed story lines which attract to not just women but also men.



I purchased this book back in 2009 and I sincerely loved it. At the time I was getting really into vampires and romance books and this book caught my eye. I have read this book countless of times but I also go back and re-read different stories. 
What is great about this book? Is that you don't have…

Where Rainbow Ends

Image
So since it is near the end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn, I thought I would write about a book that I recently read during the summer.

So recently I saw the film trailer Love, Rosie starring Lilly Collins and it was based of a book called Where Rainbow Ends. The Author is Cecelia Ahern, an Irish Author who also wrote P.S. I Love You with the film also starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler.

I was very interested in the story as it was two best friends, Rosie and Alex, and it was their friendship together and apart. The book is written through exchange of e-mails, letters, instant messaging and text messaging and I couldn't put it down. I really loved the book, there were tons of funny moments and moments where I cried (I am an emotional person).

The book was a very good read and I would definitely recommend to people who are interested in these sort of stories.

The book very much starts off when Rosie invites Alex to her 7th birthday, and they go through many obstacles. …

The Kemball Theatre tribute

About two years ago, I completed three years at Brockenhurt College in Lyndhurst. At the time, I thought there was no way for me to return back into education but two years later, it wasn't for education. 
Two month ago, I heard to most devastating news that completely shocked me. My drama teacher who had taught me for two years of my three years time at college past away in his sleep. I couldn't believe it, I thought this wasn't possible. This man taught me everything and he was taken away. 
At the beginning of the year, I was informed that he was diagnosed with cancer and everyone (including myself) believed that he was going to beat this cancer and be alright. 
A lot of people came to his funeral and said goodbye to a man who touched every single one of us and has made everyone laugh with his honesty and his filthy mind. He was a very serious man when it came to acting, he had previous experience before, most of us had seen the pictures of him when he was young.
