Cannes Film Festival

I L-R: Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen; Kristen Dunst in Christian Dior Couture; Bella Hadid in Roberto Cavalli.

I love the Cannes Film Festival, it's always so glamorous and chic. I wish I was onboard a yacht with Leo DiCaprio, sipping champagne and sunbathing in the South of France. Alas, I will have to just make do with swooning over all the red carpet gowns. 

Book Club - "Dare Me" Megan Abbott


I picked up this book, on a whim at my local library the other week. Not going to lie, I am a sucker for a good cover and this one really called to me. Luckily, the book lived up to the cover and I really loved the story and found myself staying up late to keep reading, which is always a good sign! The story is set at an American high school and follows a cheerleading squad and the dynamic friendship between captain Beth, her sidekick and narrator Addy and their new mysterious Coach. I love a dark, teenage drama as there is something eerie about adolescent girl friendships, perfectly summed up by the author "there's something dangerous about the boredom of teenage girls" which is so true with this story.

May Goals



Tad late in uploading my monthly goals for May - sorry 'bout it. May seems to have seriously crept up on me and we are practically half way through the month already! 2016 doesn't hang around let me tell ya. So here is another brief round up of what I am working on in the sunny month of May.   

April Favourites


It's the end of the month again (already) so that means it's time for my monthly favourites post. This month was a bit tricky as I haven't been buying much lately but alas I pulled through and have some things to share with you that I have been loving in April.
