10 Things About Me

  1. Full name? Rachel Mary May Robinson. Mary and May were the names of my mother’s two grandmas.
  2. Favourite food? I adore pasta and I’m pretty sure I could eat it every day! I also really like Mexican food; nachos with chilli and guacamole are delicious.
  3. Favourite book? I don’t know if I have a specific favourite but Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and The Help by Kathryn Stockett are definitely up there as some of my favourites. 
  4. What am I reading now? We need to talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver.
  5. Favourite music? At the moment I would have to say MØ.
  6. Favourite season? I think every season is special in it’s own way but my favourite is Spring. I think England looks its best in Spring and also my birthday is in March.
  7. Favourite sport? I love watching tennis, whether I am good at playing it is a different question! My favourite tennis player is Del Potro because he has come back amazingly from his wrist injury. I would love to go to Wimbledon one day.
  8. Siblings? I have two older sisters, so I’m the baby of the family.
  9. Height? 5’3″

What I got for Christmas

Hello everyone,

I cannot quite believe that we are in 2017! How crazy is that? I am excited to see what this year holds for me; I hope it proves a successful and happy year for all of you reading this.

Today, I have decided to show you guys some of the Christmas presents I received on the 25th December. This post stems from my despair that Christmas is over for another year. Christmas is definitely my favourite time of year as I love having all the festive decorations up, plus who doesn’t love chilling on the sofa for days in their onesie whilst stuffing their face with chocolate and watching Elf for the a millionth time? I feel very lucky this year as I got to spend Christmas with all of my close family, including my two nieces who make Christmas time so much more magical and fun than previous years.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Here are some of the presents I was lucky enough to receive this year (well technically last year!)…

  1. Topshop Petite Velvet Pinafore dress in Pink– I absolutely adore this dress and wore it on Christmas day. I wore this over the top of a sleeveless white jumper from Topshop, but it would also go well on top of long sleeved knitted jumpers and tops.

2. Hollister navy off the shoulder bodysuit– This is made from a really delicate lace material which creates a feminine look. I see myself wearing this on a night out paired with a black mini skirt.

3. Debenhams Light pink floral print pyjama cami and shorts set– This is another feminine item I received. I really needed a pyjama set which included shorts as I have an ever-growing collection of pyjama trousers! These are made of a lovely soft cotton and are really comfy.

4. Accessorize- Caterina embellished envelope bag– This is a gorgeous bag, perfect for adding a bit of sparkle to a LBD.

Rose gold necklace– I think they are sold out of this particular necklace now but I know Accessorize stock a wide range of rose gold jewellery. I just love anything rose gold.

Coca Cola lip balms– These are a really cute stocking filler. The set is made up of all the different flavours of coke and taste really yummy on your lips.

Body Shop- Winter berries set– These smellies just scream Christmas. What more could you want?

5.New Look Black strappy platform heels– I am a big fan of wedge shoes as I find them comfier and easier to walk in than normal heels. These are simple and would work with most outfits.

First Blog Post

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

I am a 21 year old graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Lincoln. From a young age I have had a passion for writing and whilst at University I really enjoyed getting to share my written work with people. After finishing my studies I decided to create this blog so that I could share my work with a wider audience.

This blog mainly consists of reviews of films, television and books. I also enjoy writing about beauty products and lifestyle. I aim to upload a blog post once a week on a Sunday; occasionally I will blog more than once a week, if I find the time!

I hope you enjoy my blog 🙂
