Hey, guys! How you doing?
May, my favourite month has passed, and we are inching closer and closer to summer.
This month I turned 35 and I must say it’s weird, because I don’t feel older (or wiser) than 28. As I’m just getting back into my gym routine, I skipped the cheesecake this year (yeah, I know, sacrilege), but my bestie took me out for dinner to my favourite neighbourhood steak place. I must say their burgers are a hit and miss, and this time I got a dry sandpaper one, but at least the cocktails were nice.
A few weeks ago I had my first blogger meeting as well. I met Vera @Unfiltered Tales for a coffee. She’s awesome! We had such a fun time, and talking to her was like talking to someone I’ve known for ages. She also gave me some tips on where to find petite coats, which was truly a life saver. There’s this new trend apparently: if you are small, you either freeze to death, or look like you are wearing potato sacks and have no hands, ‘cuz there ain’t no coat for you in most shops.
Being petite really sucks sometimes. Especially when I’m trying to look like an actual grown up, and not a twelve year old playing dress up with her mum’s clothes. I’m 5’2″, so can’t even say I’m that tiny, but apparently clothing manufacturers haven’t caught on this fact yet. Calf length pants, you say? Ankle grazers, more likely!
We had two bank holidays in May, and I took some time off for my birthday as well, so all in all it was not a bad month at all. I guess I could have easily read more, but all those CSI episodes ain’t gonna watch themselves!
I also finished watching Dead To Me on Netflix. It’s fuckin’ brilliant! I’m absolutely in love with Judy’s outfits. I also have a bit of 70’s/retro vibe going on lately, so it was not only a dark and twisty story, but a cool fashion inspo.
I finally read Stillhouse Lake! I’ve been saying since forever that I will, and took me until now to actually do it. All I can say is, if you haven’t read it yet, and love a good thriller, check it out!

Too Close by Natalie Daniels
How close is too close?
Connie and Ness met in the park while their children played. As they talked, they realised they were neighbours. Perhaps it was only natural that they and their families would become entirely inseparable.
But when Ness’s marriage ends in a bitter divorce, she is suddenly at Connie’s house all the time. Connie doesn’t have a moment to herself, no time alone with her husband, not a second to chat to her kids.
It’s all too much. Something has to give.
Connie has woken up in a psychiatric hospital. They say she committed a terrible crime but she says she can’t remember a thing.
I’m going to Tenerife in two weeks! Can’t wait. Have you been? I keep looking at the weather forecast and it seems to we will have a constant 24C every day. I’m not sure what to think about that. Is that beach weather there?
My physio seems to be onto something. We established that my back is recovering nicely and my muscles work properly. She was absolutely baffled by the fact that I wake up every day at exactly 4 am, being in pain. So now I’m following her advice and sleep in a quasi pillow fort to prevent me from moving. Seems to work! So there will further trials, haha.
I look forward to seeing what you guys are up to!
