My Top High Street Sunglasses (Summer 2015)

Hey guys, today I picked out my favourite sunglasses on the high street and decided to share them with you in this post. So here are my top picks:

1. Petrie Portugal Sunglasses-Topshop €26 (£18)
I love over-sized sunglasses. These ones remind me of the type of ones that Victoria Beckham wears a lot. Very glamorous and very sheek. The perfect accessory for the beach.

2. White Rubber Chunky Frame Sunglasses-River Island €13 (£10)
The sunglasses are quite cool and lot more affordable than the last ones because they are from River Island instead of Topshop. I love the white and the gold together. They are just so pretty, and are probably my favourite pair from this bunch.

3. Isabell Sunglasses-Topshop €43 (£30)
The next pair of sunglasses are really cool and remind me a bit of something from the 60's. The striped monochrome design would go with almost any bikini or swimsuit and I really love their cat-eyed shape.

4. Light Pink Flower Frame Round Sunglasses-River Island €20 (£15)
I thought these sunglasses were very different from anything I have seen anybody wearing before. I really like the idea of adding flowers to the top of the glasses but I'm not sure if they are really me. They are a bit too girly for my usual taste.

5. Light Blue Ombre Round Sunglasses-River Island €17 (£13)
These sunglasses are ideal for me. It's as if I said could we make the light pink flowery pair a bit more me and these are what I got. As you probably already know, because I've talked about it a couple of times on my YouTube channel and used it for most of my blog design, I really love the colour blue. I also really like the sort of John Lennonesque feel to them that you don't get as much when they are pink and have flowers attached.

6. Sophie Cateye Sunglasses-Topshop €23 (£16)
These pair of sunglasses are quite similar to the white and gold pair except the have a plastic temple instead of a metal one. The pastel pink and blue together are really cute and I could see myself wearing these to beach or pool, or casually driving around on a sunny day.

So those are my top high street sunglasses for summer 2015. I recently bought two pairs of sunglasses from Penneys that I left off this list which will be featured in a Penneys Haul video that will be up on my channel in the next day or two. Please subscribe to my channel if you would like to see that video and also make sure to leave a comment down below telling which of these pairs of sunglasses are you favourite.

Flawless (Pretty Little Liars #2) Book Review

Hey guys, today I am reviewing the second book in the Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard. I didn't review the first one because there wasn't much to say about it. If you have seen the first episode of the series, then you pretty much could skip the first book because it's basically the same. The reason why I decided to read the PLL series is that I heard it was different to the TV show and I found out who A turns out to be in the books. The A in the book is different to who it is the show and I was just intrigued to see how the author would reveal the whole thing. 

This book has a different plot from any episodes of the show although they both kept some of the big storylines in common. I liked that it was sort of an extension of the episodes for most of the book because I love Pretty Little Liars so it was nice to read more about the girls. The books aren't the best written books and they aren't particularly gripping but they are a nice, easy read. The story in this book sort of unfolds while the girls are preparing to go to a charity event called Foxy. There are a lot of romantic dramas as well as a few creepy texts from A. It is so difficult to tell you about this book without any spoilers because almost everything that happens feels like a bit of a spoiler. The best part of this book comes at the end when something that I really wasn't expecting happened. I was so so shocked by the ending. It completely caught me off guard. 

I wasn't crazy about this book throughout. It was an alright story but I wasn't dying to find out what was going to happen next like in the TV series. I'd like to think that if you haven't seen the show that it would be more interesting and exciting but I think that it still wouldn't be that much. The one thing that is making want to read the next book, other than the fact that I already have it because I bought the first three together, is the ending. It made me excited to see what's coming next. I think though, that if the next book is more like the start and middle of this book than the ending that I will just skip to the book where they reveal A because there are so many books between this one and the reveal that I can't see myself reading them unless they get a bit better. The next book in the series is Perfect and I will make sure to write a review once I have read it letting you know what it is like. Hopefully, the book series will start to get a little more exciting in that book. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you did, make sure to save it on Bloglovin or give it a +1 on Google Plus. Have you read any of the PLL books or watch the TV show?? Let me know in the comments section below. Have a great day everyone and i'll talk to you soon!

Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone Challenge

Hey guys, today I want to talk to you about stepping out of your comfort zone. This is something that I find pretty hard to do. I love my comfort zone and I like to put off doing anything that will take me out of it. The bad thing about that is that a lot of great things can happen if you step out of your comfort zone. Initially it is really scary but it usually results in something great.

I'm planning to move to a different country possibly next year and it is really scary, but what is even more scary is the thought that I won't go because I am too comfortable in my life here. I'm hoping that the fear of not going will outweigh the fear of actually going and all the scary things that come with it. To help me in this big transition of moving away in the future, right now, I am going to start doing small things that I normally would be too scared to do or just not want to put in the effort of actually doing them. If any opportunities come up that I would normally think "I don't want to bother doing that", I am going to give them a try. Think of the film Yes Man. It is a bit like that except not as extreme (I can say no to things haha).

I hope that some of you will join me in this challenge. You don't have to tell me about it, commit to doing it for a certain amount of time or anything like that, but just make a decision today that you will try to be more aware of when you are staying in your comfort zone and try to step outside of it a little bit. I'll make sure to keep you updated if it results in anything exciting for me!! I hope you enjoyed this post! If you did, make sure to save it on Bloglovin or give it a +1 on Google Plus and i'll talk to you soon.
