Book Blogging and new blogs

I've started a new blog that is about books called bibliophile.
I found that I was feeling more passionate about books than I was about beauty and I wanted to write about it but didn't want to on here where my few followers are for beauty and fashion so I have started a new one.
I haven't posted in so long partly because if me thinking about that and partly because I have a lot of school work at the moment and exams that I need to revise for.
As of yet, I still an unsure whether I will continue to post on here after my exams are over, or just dedicate all my blogging time to my new blog. I hope that I will continue but I think I need to play it out and see what happens but either way I think that my commitment will be more towards the new book blog rather than this one.
If you like reading and are interested please check out my new blog, no interesting posts are up yet but they are on the way soon

A day in the life (with photos)

As I am on my Easter holidays, I thought it would be nice to do something a little different and use mainly photos to show an average saturday of my life. I don't know how this will go, or if you will even enjoy hearing about my boring everyday life but here it is. 

The day started off with an unusually delicious breakfast- croissants with raspberry jam and some very tasty mango, peach and papaya juice.

I had been slobbing about all week so I went for a run that was actually pretty nice, I love the dene in springtime. 

When I got back, I tired to brave the garden but I was a bit too optimistic about the weather so I have to say I didn't last very long.

Showered, dressed and fresh faced (more or less) I settled down for a hilarious chick flick accompanied by lunch. You can't go wrong with She's the Man.

Then I made an attempt to get some revision done, although I have to say I got bored pretty quickly so I wouldn't class it as a very productive session.
Luckily my friend rang me up and we went to Starbucks and I had a caramel cream frappacino which was lovely but I forgot to take a picture- silly me! 
We headed back to mine and once another friend joined us we baked some yummy chocolate chip muffins with marshmallows thrown in for extra tasty goodness. I did actually take a photo of one but it somehow disappeared (I'm really not doing to well am I?!).

After tea, some tv watching and writing a blog post, it was time to catch up with my youtube videos for the day. I seriously don't know what I would do with out Troye Sivan!

Finally it was time for bed - not going to lie, often one of my favourite parts of the day, it's just so cosy.

You can't go to bed without a book. I finished reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith (a modern classic) which I enjoyed a lot more than I expected and found it surprisingly funny. 
I hope you enjoyed this post, it was a bit different but I do like to add some variety to my blog. I've found that the few lifestyle type posts that I have written have gone done quite well so I thought it would be about time to do another one. I actually really enjoyed my day and blogging about it kind of makes me realise how much I take for granted (as deep as it may sound). I should be very thankful for all I that I have and can do.
