Book Review: The Accident Season.



The Accident Season* was the latest book I've finished, so I thought it was time for another book review. The story follows a single-parent family and their lives living with a month every year known as the 'accident season'. During this month the family experience strange goings on and 'accidents' occurring. Around Halloween each year, the family must try their hardest to stay safe and avoid anything that could cause harm to themselves or others.The plot is narrated by Cara, the main character and follows her throughout, interacting with her best friend, sister and her step-brother. 

The plot is really exciting and nothing like I've read before. I don't want to give too much away, but this will certainly have you on your toes.The story is dark and magical and gave me that 'I can't out it down feel'. If you're into Pretty Little Liars, I think you'll love this book as it carries the same mystery as PLL. This is a great read, especially if you're looking for something a little different from you're regular reads.

Precious Jewels.


I've always been a magpie when it comes to finding bargain jewellery. I adore rings, but I'm currently wearing four daily so to prevent myself from looking like a walking ring shop I've been investing in some necklaces. 

I luckily spotted a few sale items in Topshop and managed to pick up two necklaces for just £4. I adore precious stones and this turquoise one is no exception. It's so pretty and I love the red contrast with the silver and blue. The second necklace I grabbed in the Freedom range at Topshop was this cute diamond-shaped perspex cube. It's so delicate and again I love the chain that adds a little more interest than a regular one.

I found my final piece in H&M whilst waiting for the hubby. This incredibly pretty gold chain is gorgeous and looks so much more expensive that it's £1 price tag. I can't wait to style this up with a plain white tee and skinny jeans.

Mayfield Alpaca Farm.


Last weekend we headed to Sheffield to visit some of my family and decided to stop off at Mayfield Alpaca Farm on the way. You all know I'm a HUGE animal fan and alpacas and llamas have always been some of favourite animals. The farm was full of alpacas and lots of other farm animals and I was completely in my element. My hubby even got really involved feeding and petting the alpacas. They were super friendly and pretty photogenic too. I had such a fun time and it was the perfect chance for a spot of fresh air!
