Books I’ve Read… September 2017

by

With carnival signalling the official end of summer, September is the perfect time to get back into reading. I decided to treat myself to new books, despite having (several) unread books at home.

Books I’ve Read… June 2017

This was definitely a month of gathering my life through a series of self-help books. I'm definitely a sucker for non-fiction!

Three Books That Changed My Life

by

I read a lot of non-fiction and have read quite a few self-help books in my time. For the most part the content is the same and the authors reference the same studies, but there are three books, in particular, that stand out. I've chosen each book because they have impacted my life in some way and ...

Reflecting on 2016

by

Every year I look forward to reflecting on my achievements and planning next year's adventures and despite the general consensus, 2016 has been an amazing year for me. I've truly grown in more ways than I ever would have imagined and I couldn't be happier. 2016 has taught me numerous life lessons, I've laughed, cried and experienced ...
