It's Christmas time! aka: mini blog break...

Source


Eeep! You guys! Christmas in two days! Can't believe it! It's weird to think that this time last year we were in cold, dark England, snuggled up in blankets, drinking hot drinks and visiting pretty lights. Here, it's very very different. We're staying up in Northland at a bach, where we've been since Saturday, and will be for about 10 days...I think. It's odd, having Christmas away from the house, but I'm planning to get a lot of reading done, and hopefully brown up my white, white skin.

Over the next week, you won't be seeing much action on the blog, which is totally fine because it's Christmas, and we're all busy and enjoying the season, right? Right! I will be back blogging on the 31st for a round up of the month, and then we're back into it, starting 2015 with a bang! Can't wait! Until then, you can follow along with my Christmas and beach adventures on Instagram, and Twitter.

Book Haul #17...



One weekend there was a book fair. One book-loving girl went along...twice. One wallet was emptied. Forty-three books were purchased. Three bookshelves were filled. One bibliophile was way too excited for her own good. She wanted to share her book finds with all her bloggy friends. So she created six different book haul posts to add to the 11 she had already posted. Everyone was happy. Read more about it all here

This is the last book haul in this mini series! No more book fair book hauls! Until the next book fair, of course. Eek. Anyway! This book haul is actually all one author...so it'll be a short one! Check it out:



The Artemis Fowl Series
Well, half of it anyway. I've read up to book 6 of the Artemis Fowl series, thought here are still 2 I haven't read. Unfortunately I could only find 4 in this series. Ah well. It's 4 I didn't have before. The only one I did have was number 5, for some reason unbeknownst to me.

The Supernaturalist, and Airman
These two books by Eoin Colfer I haven't read before, but trusting my love of the above series, I should enjoy these ones too.

Boom! Done! Told you it would be short! Hope you've enjoyed these book-fair book hauls! No doubt there will be more book hauls in the future (Christmas is in 3 days!!), but for now...

Have you read any of these books?

Book Cover Nails :: Attachments :: Rainbow Rowell...

I started a new thing here on the blog. A new 'thing'. Fantastic descriptive, creative writing skills there, Anjali. Well done. Anyway, I mentioned in the previous (and first) one that I loved doing my nails in crazy ways, but lately I haven't had much motivation to do them, or I can't think of my anything exciting to put on them. And I also realised how cool my book covers were. So I'm joining the two together!

For today's Book Cover Nails, I did ones that were inspired by Attachments, by Rainbow Rowell. I love the cover of this book! It's so sweet! I love the colours and the white and black images on top. I tried to match up the colours, but I think only the pink turned out to be a good match. Hopefully you can tell (though maybe you can't because they're not very good *rolls eyes*), but I did a little table with a vase on it on the thumb (like the one in the middle teal section on the cover), and a filing cabinet on the ring finger. The rest of the random wonky squares were supposed to be flying bits of paper, but they kind of just look like...well like wonky squares.



As you can see, I did the word 'Attachments' on my right hand because there was no way I was going to try and draw tiny coffee tables with my left hand. A little bit average in quality, but they're kind fun anyway. I didn't actually have these on for very long, but they did make me happy. All those bright colours!
