BLOG TOUR | ACROSS GREAT DIVIDES BOOK REVIEW

Wow. As a history lover, I was intrigued by this book before I even read the first the page. I have spent a large part of my academic career learning about the second world war, and the effects the Nazi regime had on the people of Europe. However, everything that I have learnt did not prepare me this heartbreaking story, surrounding a Jewish family from Berlin, and the lengths they would go through to stay safe. We meet them before the war when Hitler was just a small blip on the radar. Very…

Back in January, I decided that this summer would finally be the year I decorate my bedroom. It has been red and cream for a good few years now and quite frankly it's really beginning to peeve me off! I know that I am supposed to be saving to buy my own house, but that dream is still a couple of years away and if I have to look at those red walls any longer, I think I am going to scream, ahaha! If you're anything like me when it comes to home design, then you'll be all too familiar with the…

PURRBOXES REVIEW & UNBOXING

This month, Harry and I have had the pleasure of working with Purrboxes*, a unique subscription box for your furry little purr baby. I personally love subscription boxes, the idea of getting loads of cool stuff through your letterbox every month is the best natural high I can think of, but getting something through the post that you can use to entertain your little purr baby, now that is my idea of heaven. Our Purrbox order was pretty straight forward, you go onto the website, choose whether…

HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD

Hi guys, today I wanted to write about my recent theatre trip to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was absolutely fantastic, and I highly recommend it to anyone that loves Harry Potter or can appreciate the magic of a well put together stage show. I am not a theatre critic, so all of my thoughts and opinions are that of a fan and avid theatre goer. My friend bought our tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child way back when they first went on sale in November 2015, so needless to…

NEW BLOG LAYOUT FEATURING PRETTY WILD THINGS

If you are a regular visitor of Kirstiekinsblogs, then you will have noticed that we have undergone a little makeover! Sorting myself out with a professionally made layout has been at the top of my blogging to-do list for years, however, I never really saw the point when I was just hobby blogging. That was until I graduated, and found myself with a lot more time on my hands. My evenings are my own again, I haven't got to find extra hours to get reading done or work on essays, nor do I have…

MY TRAVEL BUCKET LIST

If you follow me on Pinterest you will have noticed that I have been filling up my travel boards like crazy over the past few days. I am itching to book my next adventure, (you can view my previous travel adventures here) only this is a little hard as I do not have a stable income at the moment - being self-employed is a pain in the ass. ANYWAY. Whilst I am improving my income all of my travel plans are currently on hold, but that doesn't stop me from planning all of my future trips, and…

BLOG TOUR || GIRLS ON FIRE - ROBIN WASSERMAN

IT STARTS WITH A SUICIDE AND ENDS WITH A DEATH Have you ever seen the movie Foxfire? A new girl moves to town, she's a bit of a bad ass, starts a girl gang with a few typical loser types, adored by those in her clique, et cetera? Well, Girls on Fire* is nothing like that, except it is. Now think of the early 90's movie The Heathers - Winona Ryder classic, arguably one of my favourite films of all time; well the book is a little bit like that too. And the movie Thirteen, Definitely thirteen…

REVIEW || My Heart & Other Black Holes - Jasmine Warga

“Depression is like a heaviness that you can’t ever escape. It crushes down on you, making even the smallest things like tying your shoes or chewing on toast seem like a twenty-mile hike uphill. Depression is a part of you; it’s in your bones and your blood.” This is another one of the books that I had on my 'To-Read' list for longer than it actually took me to read. I bought it back in October with a gift voucher my brother gave me for my birthday and aimed to read it a week or so later…

TRAVEL || STATUE OF LIBERTY

So this weeks NYC post is pretty photo heavy, but how can it not be when on our second day in New York, we hopped on a sightseeing bus and made our way down to Battery Park so we could see The Statue of Liberty. I have been wanting to see Lady Liberty ever since I first saw her on TV when I was little, so finally getting the chance to see her in person was pretty magical. Even though we left pretty early, as thanks to the time difference I woke up at five am, we missed out on the tickets…

Sarah Millican: Outsider

Last Sunday I went to see the amazing Sarah Millican at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. I have loved Sarah Millican for so long, so seeing her live was an immense experience. She has such a fantastic stage presence and captured the attention of the audience throughout her entire set. By the time we left my sides were hurting from laughing so much. I really didn't want the show to end. Our seats were pretty close, so we had a good view of the stage not that the view really mattered, as…

What cheese do you use to hide a horse? *Collaboration with Cheese Posties

MASCARPONE! Haha, don't you just love a grate cheese joke? Is there anything in life better than a cheese toastie? Unless you answered Mac n' Cheese, then your answer should be no. This week I had the opportunity to work with Cheese Posties* a subscription box service that delivers specially crafted cheese toasties to your front door every Thursday. Now I know you're most probably thinking, how does that work? and I was a little dubious too, but let me tell you, I was more than surprised and…

FLORIDA ON A BUDGET

As you may have seen, I recently went on an epic two week holiday to Florida. My friend Daniel and I decided on Florida after a conversation about our favourite childhood holidays; he soon became jealous when he found out that I was the kid who spent her summer holidays in the warmer climate of Florida, whilst he was the kid that was squashed into the family car and driven to Devon for a week. A Florida holiday was his ultimate dream, so I decided to see if I could make that dream a reality…

TRAVEL || NEW YORK: A CITY WITH A VIEW

The only thing better than seeing the New York Skyline from Liberty Island is being part of it. Ever since I saw Home Alone 2 when I was a kid, I wanted nothing more than to climb to the top of New York and look out onto the enormous buildings and vast blue skies; and let me tell you, it was everything I ever hoped it could be. In New York, there are three major buildings that let regular ol' folk climb to the top and look out onto the views of the city: 30 Rock, The Empire State Building…

HOW I AM GOING TO KICK 2017'S BUTT!

Hi Guys, welcome to my first post of the year. So far this year has already been better than 2016 in more ways than one - I am making some positive changes in my life, I have set the wheels in motion for some pretty exciting things, and I am finally learning to relax a little. I've made a list of things I want to achieve this year, not so much resolutions as I don't think a change should be forced - it should come naturally over a period of time, or something like that anyway. Instead, I am…

Simple Pumpkin Pie Recipe

If you're anything like me and can't resist a good bargain, then you too will probably have been tempted by the post-Halloween reduced pumpkins. Now I am not the best cook in the world, but I will have a good go at baking most things so when I saw this giant pumpkin for 10p in Lidl I figured that now would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at baking a Pumpkin Pie. If you have never had Pumpkin Pie then you are seriously missing out. It isn't really a traditional thing to bake in the…
