The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle review

This novel is so full of twists and turns you’ll feel like you’re on a rollercoaster!

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton is a murder mystery like no other. Set over 8 days, the book follows Aiden Bishop as he tries to solve the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle, with one catch – each morning he wakes up in a different body and must relive the day again and see it through a different persons eyes. Not only that, but there are other people who are trying to beat him to the answer and they are willing to go to any lengths in order to get there first. Whoever figures out this mystery is the winner. The prize? Their freedom.

Evelyn will be killed 19 years to the day that her younger brother Thomas was murdered and as Aiden learns more about the Hardcastle’s and the events of the past the closer he comes to discovering the truth. The first day, he wakes up in Dr. Sebastian Bell’s body, without a clue as to where he is and what he is supposed to do and it’s only downhill from there. With each host comes a new set of complications not to mention the mysterious footman who seems intent on picking them off one by one.

When I read the blurb for this book I knew it was going to be a bit of me but it exceeded my expectations! Right from page one I was hooked! I’ve read so many thrillers and murder mysteries I can often predict where the story is going, but not with this one. Every time I thought I knew what was happening some new information comes to light that turns everything on its head. It kept me guessing right up to the end.

I’ve seen a lot of people describe this book as confusing and while there is a lot of different threads to follow I never felt like I was so confused that I wasn’t sure what was happening. I think it was mind boggling but in the best way possible. There are layers upon layers of reveals with the answer (or what seems to be an answer) on almost every page.

I enjoyed this book so much I am thoroughly looking forward to reading more of Stuart Turton’s work! If you’re not sure you can commit to a book over 500 pages, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is set to be adapted as a seven-part series for Netflix UK.

Have you read The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle? What did you think of it?

What I read in 2020

One of my resolutions for 2020 was to read more, I set myself a goal of 10 books over the year and I have succeeded! So here is a round up of everything I read.


TALA Activewear Review

When Grace Beverley launched TALA last year I could not wait to get my hands on the affordable and sustainable gym wear but I also couldn’t bring myself to go through the stress of trying to get it the moment it launched. I decided instead to wait for things to restock so that I would actually have a chance to get what I wanted. A year later and my collection of TALA activewear is ever expanding (RIP my bank account). I still have a few things on my wish list because they always seem to be out of stock when I go to order them, but here is a review of the bits I have managed to get my hands on so far.

The Mina Bra

The first piece I ordered from TALA was the Mina bra in the neon pink with grey branding which is part of their Flare collection. I ordered it when they were running a campaign to raise money for the bushfires in Australia, so 50% of the money I paid went to charity. I am a UK 10/12 and the medium fits me well, plenty of compression but doesn’t dig in anywhere. One of the things I was worried about with this one is that it might roll up, I find this can be a problem with longer line sports bras, but it stays in place. All in all I really like this bra, I would probably say it is medium support so fine for low impact activity but I wouldn’t wear it to go running. It is much brighter than the pictures on the website make it look – definitely fluorescent pink!

The Isla Loose Tee

I spend most of my weekend in an oversized tee with either joggers or shorts so I thought I would try the Isla tee. Again I got a size medium and it is an oversized fit, I think I probably could have gotten away with a small and it still would have been baggy and comfy. I really like the subtle embroidered branding on the front of this top, it looks good as activewear but also works tucked into a pair of jeans. I have gotten so much use out of this so it was definitely worth the money!

Eden Zip Top

I waited ages for this one to come back into stock – it was definitely an ‘instagram made me do it’ purchase. The Eden Zip top is made of quite a thick material so personally I fins it a bit too warm to work out in and use it as more for casual everyday wear. It is incredibly flattering, it makes your waist look tiny and keeps everything in just the right place. I would also say it comes up a bit shorter than it appears in the pictures, so if you prefer your tops longer lined then this is maybe not the one for you.

The Zae Short Sleeve Top

This was the only thing I bought the day it launched. Again it was something I could see myself getting a lot of use out of. I got the Zae top in the short sleeve regular length in the colour Chai. The main thing I love about this top is that it is double lined so even though its a light colour you can’t see through it. You can wear this without a bra but personally I  prefer to wear it with one. If I could I would have this in every colour because it is so comfy and easy to style. Although I didn’t get the cropped version it is still quite short in the body so I imagine the cropped one would probably be too short on me.

The Zella Loose Tee

I had my eye on The Zella Loose Tee since it launched the colour was just calling to me! Recently I gave in and finally added it to my collection. I wear my other TALA tee so much I figured I would get a lot of use out of this one as well. Its nice and lightweight making it perfect for summer and it has pretty much the same fit to the Isla tee. The main difference between the two is the placement of the TALA logo.

Screenshot_2020-01-19_at_18.08.59_1024x1024@2x

The Porto Hoodie

My final piece (for now at least!) is the Porto hoodie. It is super comfy and the inside is so soft. It is another oversized fit, the site recommended I needed a large but I am glad I stuck to my usual size because the medium is big enough! I was worried that the branding would be too bright but it’s actually a bit softer in person. My only complaint is the lack of pockets, where is a gal supposed to put her phone!

TALA_BLK_hoodie_Ayesiha_1_1024x1024@2x

Do the plant tags work?

I planted my first two tags and it didn’t seem to work. One of them sprouted a little bit and then died and I haven’t tried again since because looking at a pot of soil with no plant in makes me sad. I might give it a go but I think they could do with better instructions on how to actually get the tags to sprout.

In summary…

My collection is by no means complete, I would really like to get my hands on some of the shorts or the leggings but they normally run out of stock before I can buy them. I haven’t been disappointed by a single thing I bought from TALA and I have no doubt I will continue to buy from them for years to come. The postage is generally pretty quick as well which means you don’t have too wait too long for your new goodies!

Have you tried any of the other pieces from TALA, what did you think of them?

Shreddy Resistance Bands Review

My thoughts on Grace Fit UK’s resistance bands. Are they worth the money? Did they make a difference to my workout? Would I recommend them?


Skin Care Saviours

I am definitely guilty of being lazy when it comes to taking skin care seriously. However, in order to be a proper #adult I decided to start taking better care of it. But there is so much out there to choose from, there’s toners and lotions and potions galore, so to make life easier for you here are my go to products.

For everyday cleansing

Camomile cleansing butter

camomile-sumptuous-cleansing-butter-6-640x640
The Body Shop – Camomile Cleansing Butter – £11

I picked this one up because I was intrigued by the concept of a cleansing butter and after one use I was hooked.

It’s super easy to use, and it leaves my skin feeling really soft. Although, it isn’t the best at removing eye make up.

I really like cleansers that can be applied to a dry face as it speeds up the process. I am much less likely to properly clean my face if I have to wait for the tap to run warm before I even start the cleaning process.

Camomile make up remover

camomile-gentle-eye-make-up-remover-1088059-camomilegentleeyemake-upremover250ml-2-640x640
The Body Shop – Camomile Eye Make-up Remover – £7.50

When I picked up the cleansing butter I decided to try the eye make up remover as well and it did not disappoint.

I wasn’t sure if I would like this one but they sell a mini version of it as part of a gift set with the cleansing butter. Mini’s are a great way to try new products without spending loads of money. The number of times I have bought a product that has been super hyped up only to use it 3 times and forget about it.

When I finish my mini bottle I will definitely be going back for a big one!

Micellar water

3381835
Simple – Micellar Cleansing Water – £3.49

If I can’t be bothered to do a proper clean with the butter then I’ll use micellar water, I also have a mini version to take with me when I go on trips.

Micellar water is great for giving your skin a good cleanse when you haven’t got water to hand. I will tend to use this after using a make up wipe to try and get as clean as possible. Also because I often feel like wipes don’t take all the makeup off, using micellar water gets the last bits off.

For the super deep clean

Himalayan charcoal clay wash

himalayan-charcoal-purifying-clay-wash-2-640x640
The Body Shop – Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Clay Wash – £10

When I’m in the shower I’ll do a proper deep clean using this face wash.

I particularly like this one as it contains tea-tree which helps with break outs. It also doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry at all, which some deep cleansers do. It unclogs pores which I think is really important to properly get rid of all the pollution and grime your face picks up during the day.

And, as if that isn’t enough, it smells amazing!

 

Seaweed exfoliator

seaweed-pore-cleansing-exfoliator-7-640x640
The Body Shop – Seaweed Exfoliator – £11

Once I’ve cleansed its time to exfoliate. There’s just something about an exfoliator that leaves skin feeling super smooth that I just love.

I have sensitive skin so I need an exfoliator that isn’t too harsh and this one is perfect.

For the break outs

All things Tea-Tree

I use the Skin Clearing Clay Mask once a week, twice if I’m having a particularly bad skin week (Mother Nature I’m looking at you). Every night I use the Night Lotion on areas that are particularly prone to breaking out. I find if I use it all over it just makes the problem worse. Then to finish off I use the Targeted Spot Gel. Does what it says on the tin really, it reduces spots overnight. I’ll use this twice a day on spots until they disappear, which is normally one or two days.

So there you have it, the lazy girls guide to skin care. What are your go to skin care saviours?

Autumn obsessions

The start of September means the start of a new season for fashion and I am SO EXCITED! Here are some of the trends I am looking forward to making the most of now that the weather has cooled down a bit:

1. Corduroy 

This blazer co-ord from Nasty Gal is perfect for autumn, style them together or separately and the colour is perfect for the summer – autumn transition.

Personally I think a corduroy dress is a staple for autumn. It has the potential for so many layers – long sleeve tee underneath, snuggly jumper on top and a coat once it starts to get really chilly. H&M have some nice ones but this blue zip dress is another Nasty Gal find.

You can never go wrong with an oversized shirt and I particularly like the colour of this Pull&Bear one – giving me all the autumn feels!

2. Slouchy knits

I am a sucker for anything soft and warm so slouchy jumpers are my favourite thing about autumn. It’s always good to have a neutral coloured jumper on standby, particularly if you are a fan of bright colours and patterns (like me). I am loving all the jumpers in Fashion Influx’s In The Style collection but I especially like the slouchy jumper in beige and this roll neck jumper dress in white.

3. Jewel tones

Just because the weather might be turning grey doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to! Add a pop of colour to your outfit using your accessories – for example this belt from River Island. You can never go too far wrong with blue and this blue wrap blouse, also River Island, is perfect for those ‘jeans and nice top’ occasions. The pictures don’t do justice to the colour of this Nasty Gal polo neck, guaranteed to brighten up any autumn day.

Stepping into Spring trends

As we approach the start of spring there are lots of new trends to try. Here is a round up of some of my favourites and the styles I’m looking forward to for Spring 2020.


Handbag haul

I haven’t bought a new handbag in what feels like forever. I  am a girl who normally sticks to a backpack – they’re practical but not always the most fashionable I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to branch out and get something practical but also something a bit more adult and stylish.

I came across the brand Claudia Canova on ASOS, and I it is fast becoming my favourite brand! Their styles are so fun but also simple enough to go with everything, and they had some great deals in their end of season sale…

IMG_3069

I had my eye on this tote bag for a while and when it went on sale I had to order it! I don’t like a big black bag it just feels a bit to school bag like for me, so this khaki colour is perfect. It has this little inner bag that you can remove which is perfect for keeping all your stuff organised. Ever since I got it, it has been my go to bag everyday. I also picked up a new purse – also in the sale. I bought both of these direct from the Claudia Canova site, rather than through ASOS but it is worth checking both sites because they’re sometimes cheaper on ASOS and sometimes on sale on Claudia Canova.

Claudia Canova Tote Bag 

Claudia Canova Purse

IMG_3067

I also needed to replace my little black bag – we all need one! One of the things I loved about this is that it’s a little bit different and adds more to the outfit. I also discovered that the strap is interchangeable so when I want this bag to feel like new again I can just get a new strap for this bag. I love the pink Claudia Canova lining – really gives it that luxury feel.

It has a zipped pocket on the back which is perfect for storing your phone and multiple pockets in the main section as well which is perfect. Such a bargain as well as it was in the ASOS sale down from £55 to £25!

Claudia Canova Black Cross Body Bag

FlexxFit: A Review

I first found FlexxFit about 2 years ago now. I was drawn in by the bright colours and affordable prices and it is one of the best discoveries I have made!

IMG_5190

The first pair I got was the Cranberry ‘Go Higher’ (or something like that) which they no longer do, they’ve moved onto better things. I still reach for these a lot even though I’ve had them a while. The colour hasn’t faded at all and they still fit really well, however the colour does transfer a little bit when you wear a light coloured top that covers it. The transferred colour comes out in the wash though so I’m not too mad about it. They still sell this colour just in the new design and fabric.

When they brought out their new ‘Luxe’ leggings I ordered a pair with the matching crossover bra. Due to it being new product there was a whole kerfuffle which meant I had to wait ages (I think it was about 3 months in the end) for these to arrive but the customer service was impeccable. They kept me informed every step of the way and provided me with a discount code valid for the next 2 years as an apology.

The material of the luxe leggings are thick and soft, and the fit is really flattering. The waist hits at a really good point and they have a good level of compression on the stomach area.

I have these in steel grey, spiced pumpkin which is a burnt orange colour and seafoam which is a blue/green colour.

IMG_0263

I also have a pair of their heart contour leggings. I really like the detailing on these and the pockets are life changing! However, they don’t come up as high as the luxe leggings and so I don’t find them quite as flattering. These are in the colour ‘mystic merlot’ which is a dusty pink colour. They also do these in the luxe legging style.

I have all of these in a size small and am a UK 10/12, the leggings are all £29.99 which is great value for money and they very often have sales making them even cheaper.

Like everyone else I love a matching gym set so naturally I have the matching bras for 3 of the leggings…

IWY5dQuXRNeNl02KgdmtRg

I have the steel grey crossover bra, mystic merlot luxe v tape bra and the spiced pumpkin scoop neck bra. These come up quite small so I have these in medium or large, and even then it can be a bit risky when doing HIIT!

The bras are £24.99, but if you pick your timing right they have them on offer for as low as £9.99!

These are so worth the money and if I could I would have these in every single colour, I just don’t have the drawer space (or the bank balance lets be honest).

Shreddy Resistance Bands Review

My thoughts on Grace Fit UK’s resistance bands. Are they worth the money? Did they make a difference to my workout? Would I recommend them?


Why everyone should read Naomi Alderman’s book ‘The Power’

Naomi Alderman’s 2016 novel “The Power” explores what a world where women are the dominant gender might look like. The book begins when women develop the ability to release electrical jolts from their fingers and then follows how they use their new found power to take over the world. The book follows four main characters (Margot, Roxy, Allie and Tunde) as they adjust to their new reality.

This book is such an interesting concept that is so much more than just ‘What if women ruled the world?’ It is an exploration of the power dynamics between men and women and an exploration of how our ‘civil’ society could descend so quickly into anarchy.

I can’t express enough how amazing this book is so here are 5 reasons why you must read ‘The Power”

  1. Feminism – this is an obvious one, after all this book is marketed as ‘one of those essential feminist works’
  2. It’s so thought provoking – imagine the GSCE English essays you could write on the themes in this book! Much more interesting than ‘of mice and men’ and Curly’s wife with her red nails, red dress, red everything and what that might represent. Seriously though it really gave my brain a workout.
  3. If you are a women this book is so relatable – not in the whole being able to shoot lightning from your fingers thing obviously, but the way Alderman presents men and their behaviour towards women in this book. It particularly shines a light on how far we still have to go to get to a place of gender equality.
  4. If you are a man I think this book should be required reading – I think that the role reversal presented by this book where men are the homemakers and women are the breadwinners presents men with an easier way to put themselves in a women’s shoes (as it were) and how it would be if men rather than women had to live in constant fear for their physical safety.
  5. GIRL POWER! Seriously this book left me feeling so empowered.

This book is quite a heavy read, exploring religion, rape culture and more. At times women are presented in a very unflattering way but I think that’s what makes this book so brilliant! It makes the book feel much more believable and is a fascinating look at human behaviour. I can see why this won the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction.

If this review hasn’t sold you on this book then I highly recommend you go and read some of the reviews here. There are some really great ones, as well as some great Q&A’s.

Shreddy Resistance Bands Review

Recently I have been really bad at getting to the gym, a lot of things have changed for me and so fitness has taken a bit of a back seat. Anyway in an attempt to get back into the swing of things (and minimise possible excuses) I thought I would invest in some decent resistance bands. My old ones are too thin and dig in to my legs whenever I use them, so I don’t really reach for them. I have heard really good things about Grace’s resistance bands so I thought I would give them a try.

Facetune_30-09-2018-17-28-29
So I picked up the light (blue) and the heavy (peach) bands (the medium was sold out) and for 2 bands I paid £25 a single band was £14* (I think). I ordered these late on Wednesday and they got to me by Saturday morning which is pretty fast I think. They come in a resealable plastic pouch which is nice if you want to store them properly but honestly I can’t be bothered with that!

All of Grace’s products come with a selection of workouts or to use the proper name “Booty Burners” which you can access on an app called Aflete or you can download the PDF emailed to you when you make your purchase. There are several different styles of workout:
Resistance Band Glute Activation
Non-Resistance Band Glute Activation
Resistance Band Glute Burnouts
Non-Resistance Band Glute Burnouts
Home Glute Workouts – these consist of exercises with and without resistance bands.

In order to do a proper review I thought I would use the bands to complete a variety of the Booty Burners. So today I did a Resistance Band Glute Activation workout followed by a Home Glute Workout and finished off with a Resistance Band Glute Burnout. I decided to use the light band because its been a while since I exercised so my strength isn’t as good as it was.

Did I feel the burn? HELL YES!

I honestly don’t think I will be able to sit down comfortably tomorrow! I really liked the workouts as they’re all quite short so if you haven’t got a lot of time these are perfect. Also they’re all body weight exercises so perfect when the gym is busy and there isn’t any equipment available. The app is super easy to use and I like how easy it makes accessing the workouts.

Are they worth the money? They are very good quality and I understand that they have to make a profit so I would say they are worth the money. I would definitely buy a bundle rather than a one off product though to get better value for money.

Would I recommend these? Yes, I was afraid that they were over hyped just because of the name on them but they are definitely as good as everyone says they are. I like that you get workouts with them which definitely helps if you need a bit of inspiration or are a complete beginner. They are also really pretty, the colours are so cute and the little logo is a really nice touch.

These are currently sold out but I believe they are restocking soon

Buy them here

* I bought these when they were first released under the Grace Fit UK brand, they have since become B_ND and now fall under the Shreddy umbrella. Prices were correct at time of writing in 2018 but may have since changed.

Queenie Ke: A Review

Today I am reviewing two different style of legging from the brand Queenie Ke sold on amazon. Queenie Ke approached me to send some of their leggings to me to review and as self confessed legging addict I couldn’t very well pass up the opportunity!

IMG_0138

 

First up is the “Queenie Ke Women Yoga Leggings Ninth Pants Power Flex High Waist Gym Running Tights” – such a catchy name – in the colour teal. I ordered a size small and they fit perfectly. They’re good and stretchy but still tight enough on the waist. All of the Queenie Ke leggings have an elastic in the top for tightening the waist as well as a large phone pocket inside on the back of the leggings. IMG_0233

 

These hit the perfect point on my waist, not too high and not too low!
I really like this colour too, its different to anything I own. Good for spring (if we ever have one!) because its colourful but still dark enough for days when its a bit grey and you don’t want to crack out anything too light or bright.

IMG_0232   The stitching on the back is slightly curved which is nice and flattering on the booty. Straight seams can create a sort of double butt look…no one wants that! The curved seam sits above the booty giving it a nice shape.

The material is thick enough to be squat proof but still breathable so they’re sweat proof as well.
All in all these get a 10/10 from me! And only £15.88!

IMG_0074
The second pair is the “Queenie Ke Women Yoga Legging Power Flex High Waist Running Pants Workout Tights” in space dye purple again in size small and these ones cost £16.88. These fit well BUT omg the high waist is SO high, these are not made for my gals with short torsos! They come all the way up to my sports bra! They don’t have any compression either so theres not really any advantage to this super super high waist.

These have a straight seam but its high enough that the leggings are still flattering. The seams on the legs are slightly slanted so really make your quads pop. All in all a nice flattering fit.
The material of these is more shiny than the other leggings, and the elasticity can be mistaken for sheerness. Definitely squat proof though – I put these through two heavy leg days and they fared really well! They were nice and breathable and didn’t show sweat at all!

The colour is really cute and the space dye effect is a nice way to add pattern and texture without it being too in your face.
IMG_0231

I think I would give these an 8/10. Comfy but the waist is too high! Its almost double the size of the other leggings! That being said the quality is great for such a cheap pair of leggings.

 

Both leggings come in a selection of colours and for a cheeky 5% you can use these codes:

Gymshark VS Myprotein: A review

Everyone raves about the gymshark flex leggings and as a result it can be tricky to get your hands on a pair unless you are online as soon as they go live. So when I came across the myprotein seamless leggings which bare a striking resemblance to the flex leggings I thought they were worth investigating…

THE BASICS

 

fullsizeoutput_158


Flex
:

Material: 56% Nylon 41% Polyester 3% Elastane
Colour: Blueberry marl
Size: I wear a size S and am a UK 10/12 – they are very very stretchy
Squat proof: YES I always feel safe to wear these on leg day
Waist: mid-rise
Price: £32

 

fullsizeoutput_1e71


Seamless:

Material: 57% Nylon 40% Polyester 3% Elastane
Colour: Marble Green
Size: I wear a size M – I wear a M in other myprotein leggings, definitely fit true to the size guide on the site
Squat proof: YES
Waist: mid-rise
Price: £32

 

Both leggings have two tone contouring and I have to say while the contouring on the flex legging is more flattering it’s not very subtle, I much prefer the contouring on the seamless legging which is still flattering but not as in your face!

The waist band on the flex legging is much tighter than the seamless but this could be due to the fact that I have a small in the flex and a medium in the seamless. The waist band on the seamless is therefore more comfortable.

Both leggings are low to mid-rise and I’m more of a high waisted kinda gal myself but these sit at a good point on the waist.

The flex leggings come in a much larger range of colours compared to the seamless. The seamless comes in 4 colours whereas the flex comes in 12 colours. That being said a few of the flex colours do appear to be very similar.

Both leggings cost £34 however myprotein frequently offer deals and discounts so if you wait for one of those the seamless would be cheaper.

CONCLUSION…

These leggings are basically the same, I mean just look at the material they’re nearly identical! I just wish the seamless legging came in a larger variety of colours. Cost wise obviously the seamless is better as they are frequently discounted and also more likely to be in stock. However the majority of the flex leggings do appear to be in stock at the moment.
All in all I wouldn’t say one is better than the other, both are very good pairs of leggings. Personally I do prefer the seamless just because they are more comfortable on the waist but I’m not ready to put away my flex leggings for good just yet!
