Happy new year readers and writers!

Being that it's January, it's that time again to make my list of reading wishes and predictions for the year. My last list was quite interesting seeing as I managed 50% of the books featured. But alas! A new year has arrived and I am here to share my must-read list for 2019.

Book Review | Becoming

Honestly, I couldn't think of a better book to end 2018 with. When I first saw the announcement back in May of the release of Michelle Obama's memoirs,
Becoming, little did I know that I would become so much involved with the rich storytelling embedded within the folds of the text. 

I was graced with a copy on the release date, at one of several launch events which took place in the UK, and promptly dropped the book I was reading at the time so I could be fully devoted to Becoming.

Madeline's Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

This year it seems time has been expanding and contracting. First it felt as if 2018 was never going to end. Then all of a sudden, a giant Christmas tree was erected in my town centre, then I noticed the shops playing festive music on repeat. But reality finally set in when at work we were asked to draw names out of a hat for secret Santa.

Speaking of gifts, if you're like me, the yuletide season has taken you by surprise. You probably have not began your chrstmas shopping;. But fear not! I have put together this last minute Christmas gift guide for you.

Why Blogging May Be Good for You


Been thinking about starting a blog lately?

Blogging is a fantastic tool for so many things, and if you’re considering starting one, you shouldn’t wait any longer. Having your own blog means having a place to express yourself, your ideas and opinions. It opens up the door to having social interactions with people from all over the world based around content that you have created, or are interested in.

I for one, have made connections both on and offline through this blog. I may not have ever met many of you who are regular readers, however, I already feel a genuine connection with some of you. I have also made great contacts through my association with Black British Bloggers for example, and have even gained copywriting clients, all through blogging!

So if you do want to begin blogging but are unsure on how to get started, here are some tips for you, and advice for those of you unsure of its benefits.

Bookmarked! | November Edition

Image Credit: penguin.co.uk
As usual, public life has been crazy, and lots have been going on! For instance, have we now negotiated the terms of a certain exit? And is it true that five became four after one of my favourite childhood girl bands announced their UK wide tour?

Despite all the activity that has been keeping traditional and social media buzzing, the world of communications and literacy has been somewhat a quiet month. But, the advantage of that is that Michelle Obama's release of her memoir, Becoming on the 13th November has remained the standout event of November. It's all very exciting, and I will be writing my book review soon! But here are some of the other exciting stories I have pulled from the far corners of the web.

Six Communication Hints Your Fake Friend will Drop


It's getting that time when you will begin to reflect on life. Whilst thinking about your achievements of the year, and the goals you'd like to carry with you into the next, it's worth also auditing some of your friendships.

I never wanted to be that kind of content creator, however, this topic has been so pressed upon my heart and won't go away! I have been through one or two friendship breakups, so feel I can speak authoritatively on the subject of fake friends. Having said that, it's worth noting that there's a difference between peacefully drifting away from some people (which is a natural movement of life) and being in urgent need of departing from a toxic friendship.
