Stranger Things
When I first stumbled upon this I noticed two things. That it's set in the 80's and Winona Ryder. It reminds me so much of E.T. with the bikes and the woods and the whole hiding thing. Holly looks so much like Gertie with her blond pigtails. It makes me feel a bit nostalgic. I'm honesty so upset about the fact that the second season doesn't air until 31st October. Mostly because I'm dying to watch it but also because I love October and this just reminds me of how far away it is. Can it just be October already? Yes?

SKAM
This is absolutely brilliant. The third season is my favorite. Go watch it.

The Halcyon
Set in 1940, the Halcyon is a glamorous five-star hotel owned by the Hamilton family. Dealing with family, politics, relationships and social status, this series tells the story of London life in a world at war. There's only one season so far and I'm desperately waiting for another. I've also got half a crush on Toby Hamilton. Just thought I'd throw that in there. And, as the cherry on top and best of all, it comes with a soundtrack with music from the era. If I would've been alive back then, I'd hands down be a jazz singer. It's my secret calling in life. I just know it. I went to a marvelous party and I couldn't have liked it more. *Channeling my inner Betsey Day*.

Spent the day curled up in bed watching Skam, with my sister and Walther.

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

"Following a bloody battle against foes on every side, Paige Mahoney has risen to the dangerous position of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population. But, having turned her back on Jaxon Hall and with with vengeful enemies still at large, the task of stabilizing the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging. Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of of Senshield technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it."

The Song Rising is the third book in the Bone Season series. I've already read the Bone Season and the Mime Order and I recently read the Pale Dreamer which is a novel in the same series. The Bone Season is one of my favorite dystopian science fiction book series so I'm really excited about this one.

Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me by Lily Collins

"For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and deepest secrets, proving that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it's like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it's about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She's learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they're not alone."

I've always known of Lily Collins, but I don't know much about her. Last year I read Drew Barrymore's book Wildflower, which I loved. I'm hoping this book will be along the same lines. From what I've gathered so far she tells the story of dealing with body image, self-confidence and relationships. Both of these books come out on 7th March and I'm most excited to read them.

"It's the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears and bruises bloom."

"The accident season has been part of seventeen year old Cara's life for as long as she can remember. Towards the end of October, foreshadowed by the deaths of many relatives before them, Cara's family becomes inexplicably accident-prone. They banish knives to locked drawers, cover sharp table edges with padding, switch of electrical items. But injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever growing obsession and fear. But why are they so cursed? And how can they break free?"

I'm going to be completely honest and say that it was the book title that drew me in. No matter how horrible it sounds, the Accident Season sounded really intriguing to me. It's different, but at the same time it's not. I really loved it and found it very hard to put down. And as a lover of all thing autumnal, it may or may not have had something to do with the fact that the story takes place in October. I hope I can find more books like this one. Let me know if you happen to have any suggestions!

Does anyone else wish they could just teleport themselves to where ever it is they are going? Because if I got to pick one superpower it would be teleportation.

In the fall I am supposed to start educating myself towards becoming a florist. However, I am also meant to be able to travel by bus. And this is where my anxiety kicks in. It's not riding a bus in itself that I don't like, it's the thought of having to battle anxiety whilst being on the bus, around other people, having to be somewhere at a certain time. I've been through the same scenario so many times and it always ends the same. The thought of going through with this plan makes me feel utterly terrified. Not just because I don't want to put myself in a situation I know I can't handle, but also because I really don't want to fail. Working in a flower shop for the past year and a half has made me realize how much I want to become a florist. A real florist. Someone who feels confident in their work and knows what they're doing. If I'm going to do this, I want to do it wholeheartedly, knowing I did my best and be able to feel proud of myself. Knowing I can manage to do things by myself and feel fine, and to feel independent. Putting yourself out there is what's meant to make things better. There is this block in my head that won't let me relax and enjoy the though of doing something I love. Anxiety takes over and right now, thinking about the things I'd normally be looking forward to is not even possible. I want to do it at my own pace and not because I feel pressuered. Because it's something I want and not because I should be able to feel better by now. Anxiety does not have an expiration date. No matter how much I wish it did. I know people only pressure me for my own good, but going on bus rides all on my own, is not where I am at right now.

Tulips

Can you believe it's already February? January went by so fast and we've now made it through the first month of the year. How crazy is that. Wednesday is my favorite day at work, it's one of those days when we make lot's of bouquets, chit chat about life and buy smoothies from the cafe' next door. There is something really soothing about early mornings, starting your day at work. We had so many new flowers today and as always I could not restrain myself and I had to make a tiny bouquet with tulips to bring home with me. During these past few months I've fallen in love with tulips, which is not something I ever thought would happen as I've never been a hugh fan of tulips before. But these ones I simply could not resist!

I've fallen head over heels in love with the ruffled sleeves trend. I'm normally not a fan of high necked tops and sweaters as it makes me feel a bit claustrophobic. It looks stunning, but I just can't bring myself to actually wear them. Anyhow, I found this white Rebecca Minkoff blouse a few weeks ago and I love everything about it. Sadly when I went back to have another look at it, it had unfortunately been sold out. It would've looked really nice paired with my high waisted jeans skirt and a silver necklace. I've also been eyeing a white ribbed top with ruffled sleeves but I have absolutely no idea where it's from.
