Goodbye 2014

Image
The end of the year, a farewell tribute to the good and the bad.
Say goodbye to 2014 because all the memories will be kept and hope to find more memories in 2015.
This year for me has been slow. I haven't accomplished anything that I set out at the beginning of the year. At the beginning of the year, my main goal was to get back into the works that is teaching abroad. I wanted adventure and a chance to have fun. But most of my year was filled with work and watching TV shows online. I didn't even get back into the full swing of reading since I started this blog. 
For 2015, I have set new goals. mostly similar to the ones as last year but hopefully I can accomplish them.
So what are your new years resolutions, anything interesting or the same as last year.
I hope that you have a lovely new year and I shall see you all in my next post.
Thanks xx

Hello All,
So Christmas was a couple of days ago (you knew that. Of course you knew that, silly me)
So I wanted to show you what I received this year.

Yankee Candle Votive. Beautiful smells. I got Wild Fig. Sugared Apple, Christmas Cookie, Christmas Eve, 3X Spiced Apple (I am obsessed with this smell), Mandarin Cranberry and 2X Black Coconut.

I love this prezzie ever. Veronica Mars TV Series and Movie. I am obsessed with this TV show and I was upset when the show was cancelled. I was super happy when they were planning on making a movie.

The Duff By Kody Keplinger

Image
The Duff follows Bianca, she is this cynical and loyal friend, she is smart girl to not fall into the charms of Wesley Rush, she practically hates him but after discovering that she is The Duff between her friends, she isn't too happy. Also, things aren't going so well at home. Her Mum is leaving most of the time and her Dad is trying his best to be there for Bianca. 
I really like Bianca, she is this tough girl and a loyal friend. Feeling let down by the word Duff and escaping the drama that is in her family and the return of an ex into the arms of Wesley. I was very shocked that she would kiss him, I understood that she distracted herself from her ex and family through Wesley but obviously her relationship with her friends were very distant. And I also like, right near the end of the book, she realizes that Duff and Whore are just words, and that people say them because they want to make themselves feel better.
I love Jessica and Casey. Jessica is the ditsy and fun loving girl…

Girl Online By Zoe Sugg

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
I was really excited when I heard about this book. I have been a fan of her blog and Youtube channel since the beginning of the year. And as a book lover I was really excited when this came out. 
Her debut novel follows a girl, Penny. She lives in Brighton and own's an anonymous blog called Girl Online, where she writes about embarrassing moments and her life problems. Her parents are given the chance to plan a wedding in New York, so Penny joins her parents to the Big Apple with her Best Friend, who she then meets a musician, Noah. He is a big mystery until her life unravels before her eyes.

I really liked the concept of the story, a girl who meets a boy in New York and falls in love with him. Penny and Noah are adorable together. 
What I liked the most was Penny facing her fears over he oldest and meanest friend Megan (I prefer Mega-Bitch). Mega-Bitch was being harsh and mean to her friend and expect Penny to come running whenever she wants. I like how …

The 100 and Day 21 by Kass Morgan

Hello!!
How are you?
It's been a while. Work has been super busy and I am hooked on a Korean Drama which I can't seem to stop watching.
Anyway
Moving On


Liked:
So I liked Clarke, she is very different to how Eliza Taylor plays her in the TV show. She takes care of the sick (she does that on the show) but also she doesn't become this fighting leader that we see on the show. Her harboring hatred over Wells was very clear to everyone, everyone hates the Chancellor's son and of course Clarke loved him but not anymore. 
I also liked Bellamy, he was a character that I really liked. He sort of became this hidden leader who would do anything possible to take care of his sister. Octavia seemed to me as this innocent girl in the book, she isn't tough that I knew from the show. I also liked Clarke and Bellamy's relationship in both books, the way how they came together and grew to share feelings for one another was nice.
Glass was a very interesting character, because her story w…
