My Late Summer Read. A Beautiful Classic.

                                         20th August 2018

                                                No automatic alt text available.

Now that I have finished the Italian Girl which I wrote about  in an earlier post, which I absolutely loved, and would highly recommend to  you, you  don't have to be Italian or a girl to read it, I have examined   my bookshelf at home, and wanted to pick another older book, one was right in front of me my favorite childhood read.  Is it to late to start a Summer read when Summer is almost over?  No the humidity of today's weather here say's not, so I picked a book out, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, I know,  I'm sure most have you have read this book, or seen the film adaptation, but there is nothing like feeling the pages turn in your hand. 
            Jane Eyre is my childhood favorite book it was a gift from my good friend, for my birthday I was about 16 years old,  no one had ever given me a book for a present before, and I loved it straight away, I remember I was in tears when Jane's best friend died when they were at Lowood school. Even though it is a classic. I love the classic novels and re-read them often, I found this book much easier to read than Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte,  which I had read before this one and found it difficult to read as a teenager, may be it was to dark for me then and I didn't fully understand the passion, I love it now I am an adult. So my recommendation for a Monday is Jane Eyre. I will have a lovely cup of tea and bury myself in it after I finish writing this post  Happy Monday to you all. Love Mimi X.


                                             Just a quick note.

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

Bath, Bed and Breakfast.

After a very tiring week, work work work appointment after appointment I  just want to relax and soak in the bath, go to bed in some lovely bedding I bought last weekend and have a full English Breakfast on a Saturday Morning, There is nothing like it, I have put some of the products I used below. Enjoy and Happy Weekend folks. 💋 

Bath  I used Sanctuary Spa Body Wash, it was so relaxing and the smell of sandalwood and jasmine was lovely, and the essential oils made my skin so soft. Here is the link Sanctuary spa.

Bed  I bought this bedding from Dunelm last weekend I couldn't wait to use it I think it's so pretty I love the subtle colours  you can find it here Dunelm bedding.

Breakfast  Yummy scrambled egg, sausage, beans bacon, hash brown, and a half a tomato, just what I needed, I don't eat this everyday just at the weekend sometimes or when someone lovely will make it for me.

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…

Ten Best Blogging Tips

When I started my blog in July 2018, I never realised how much work being a blogger actually was, looking back I was so naive, I have read other blogs over the years and thought, that's easy  I can do that, but I was wrong it takes hours of work, don't get me wrong I love it, it has ups and downs but the sense of satisfaction every time I work and publish any blog post is tremendous. My blog is my online baby and I have to nurture and make it grow. So I have compiled ten top tips  to help  the blogger from my point of view.

1,First when you write a post make sure it is your own original work, you can get inspiration from other's  but never copy anyone else work, a big no no.

2,  Watch out for SEO keywords, you will need to include them in your title and in the body of your work, I am not an expert at SEO, but I just include popular words, but don't compromise your creativity for SEO. 

3,  Make sure your blog page is attractive to reader's, a nice looking font good Ph…
