Summer Reading | Lifestyle

I love summer and find that it is a time where I like to lay out in the sun and read lots of books so I decided to show you some of my books picks for this summer. I haven't read any of these books yet so I cannot form a review or opinion so this isn't a recommendation it's purely books that have caught my interest and been recommended to me.

So I bought all of these books from Waterstones market place which is somewhere I have never ordered from before. All the books were second hand and ranged in cost from £0.70 to £1.20 which is obviously a really god price for books but the delivery cost was £10.00 however it worked out around £3.00 a book in total all cost added together which is still cheaper than what you would pay in store so it works out nicely. All the books arrived together in one box and all in good condition except the hunger games which clearly had something spilt over it as it was discolored and had a few pages with rips in them however it is still readable and nothing some cello tape can't fix. 

1. Hunger games: catching fire
I have read the first hunger games and I enjoyed it so much I needed to read the next one. I have watched the movies but there's something about the books that gives an extra details and allows you to be more involved in the story which I love.

2. This lullaby
This book has been recommended to me and it is compared to the book if I stay quite a lot which is a book I really love and read quite a while ago so I think I am going to enjoy this book based on the reviews and how it was recommended to me on goodreads.

3. Eleanor and Park
I have heard people rave about this book, all my friends were like you have to read this and from what I've heard it sounds amazing! "The new Hazel and Augustus, Mia and Adam" I'm so soppy when it comes to a little love story so I am looking forward to reading this book.

4. The infinite moment of us
I will be 100% honest with this book I thought the cover was really pretty so I added it to my basket as it just looked so nice. But I did read the blurb when it was in my basket and I sounded really good about to two teens one who knows what he wants to do in life and how to do it and the other she want to please her parents and has no idea how be happy with her life.

5. The sky is everywhere
This book sounds really good and apparently has lots of twists and turns in the plot which will really keep me gripped and make me want to read on. Again I will be honest, I did like the cover to this book as well and thought it would look pretty in my room as I like storing all my books. 

If you have any good book leave a comment letting me know what they are as I'm always interested in new books as I do love reading.

Football Presentation evening | GRWM

This is a yearly event at my football club which is where we all have a awards evening at a local hall in the village and all the players and their families turn up and special awards get given out. I thought I would do a get ready with me because I love this night of the year and thought you might want to see what clothes I wore and how I got this look.

So it is a event that you dress smart casual to so it was so hot we were having a heat wave so I wanted to be cool whilst I was there as well as looking nice so I wore my black jumpsuit from H&M this isn't my typical style but I really love it and I paired it with a pair of black ad tan flip flops which I got from a shop called Miss Diva shoes. I usually wear heels but this year I was on stage helping to present the awards and wanted to decrease the chance of me falling over when on the stage so I opted for flats.

I did my hair all down and straight but pulled the front back so it opened up my face more but had my side fringe out so it looked casual as well. To accessorize I just had plain silver studs in my earrings and then my silver Pandora rings and my Gold "Taylor" necklace which is what I always wear. 

For my makeup I didn't go too dramatic so I used the Rimmel hide the blemish concealer, I set this with the Miss sporty so matte powder. For my eyes I used a bourjois eye shadow set I used the body shop brown eye liner for my lower lash line ans the 17 gel liner along my top lashes which is a thin line with a very small wing to create the illusion of fuller lashes. I used the body shop mascara. To finish off the look I used the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in this super pretty nude colour.

I had an amazing night and I got to hang out with Harry Reid (the actor who plays Ben Mitchell in Eastenders) all night and he was lovely.
