Dark Secret Blog Tour and Book Review!
Book Review – Dark Secret by Danielle Rose.
I fell in love with this book straight away! Witches AND vampires?! What’s not to love if you’re a fan of YA paranormal reads? I love how in-depth Danielle went with the witches and their magic lore and I love the spin that she took with the main character, Ava, after a fight with a vampire didn’t quite go to plan. Ava is tasked with protecting her coven and the village of Darkhaven from the vampires but her coven doesn’t trust her ability to sense the darkness that is coming which she tries to prove otherwise. Throughout the book she goes from strength to strength, but not without her flaws and weaknesses, whilst she struggles to adapt to a life she never wanted. There is a hint of romance running through this book which I really enjoyed and am excited to see where it’ll lead in the second book. Danielle’s writing is incredibly detailed and such a delight to read. I really enjoyed that it was written in first person too. This would be the perfect book if you’re just starting out on your YA paranormal journey.

There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.
Seventeen-year-old spirit witch Ava López is the self-appointed guardian of the witches and humans of Darkhaven, an idyllic village nestled between the forest and the sea. Her watch: vicious and bloodthirsty vampires.
Ava is a novice in the eyes of her coven. If she expects to protect them and the secrecy of their powers, she must gain better control of her own. When a full moon ritual goes awry, control may be lost forever, and Ava is exiled from her coven. Forced to seek refuge among the beings she had always sworn herself to hunt, she vows revenge on those who have upended her life.
But the more time Ava spends away from her coven, the more she discovers a startling truth: the witches haven’t been honest with her. Ava’s quest to strip the truth from everything she’s ever known begins with the toughest realization of all—coming to terms with who she has become.

I have this knack of accidentally sitting back, forgetting my book is there, and creasing the cover or it being accidentally knocked off the arm of the chair. 😭 So I thought it high time I got me a book sleeve! How blooming cute is this by The Story Gift? Ahhh books and cats (and black cats no less!)… Two of my favourite things!
I also just had to have the metal bookmark too. It was a tough choice between tea and coffee though because I actually love to drink both – though not at the same time obviously haha. I would love to also make a suggestion for a cat and books inspired bookmark. Then my life will be complete! 😀
My daughter is currently walking around “keeping my book and sleeve safe” as she cuddles them, bless her. She says she wants one of her own so I may have to see if there’s one she’d like.
I’d definitely recommend a book sleeve. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t bought one before now!
Wow I am actually an owner of a genuine piece of art!
I am so in love with this fluid painting by Foxx Art Official! This piece of art is called “Sahara” and I’m so happy that it’s now home with me and I can call it mine. I have been admiring Foxx Art’s pieces for quite a while now, just waiting for the right piece to call out to me, so as soon as Hannah from Foxx Art posted about this piece I knew I had to have it.
I love the orange with the gold glitter running through it. It’s so beautiful! I don’t think I’ll be stopping at owning just this gorgeous piece, there’s sure to be more of her art that I’ll want to own. You should definitely stop by her Facebook page or her Instagram and check out more of her amazing art!
“Let’s Avocuddle!!” Happy Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there (we celebrated back in March here in the UK) but we wanted to share the love and celebrate again with you all!
Willow is modelling this seriously cute tee from the vegan run brand, Happy Hooves! The tee is really good quality and made from 100% cotton. It’s age 2-4 so plenty of growing room for Willow. Absolutely love this design and the quirky slogan! I’ve also got my eye on a Harry Potter inspired hoody (you’ve gotta check it out!) and their Happy Hooves mug. For all you makeup addicts out there, there’s even a design for you guys! Happy Hooves is regularly coming up with new designs so keep your eye for them. I can’t wait to see what else they come up with. If you pop on over to their site and see something you like, I have a 20% off promo code for you guys so feel free to use it (valid until 11.59pm on 19th May) : JPXV0S2C9ZC5.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful day and that you mummies are up to something really special!
Hey guys and gals! I cannot tell you how happy I am that these have arrived! My skin is crying out for help. It did not like my Body Shop face wash at all. It made my face sore and spotty and gave me dry patches so fingers crossed Angels on Bare Skin will soothe it and make it feel much better. As well as using Celestial moisturiser on my face, I’m going to use it on my hands. They are so awful atm and my palms are so itchy and sore! I made sure I went for a product that has mostly natural ingredients and NO perfume because my skin is quite sensitive and I have dermatitis/eczema so a lot of things can set it off.
Hop on over to K Rose B Cosmetics to check out their amazingly pigmented (I’m not kidding! They really are crazy pigmented) eyeshadow pans and lashes! The eyeshadows pans are 36mm in size, so bigger than standard pans, and also come with an iron sticker so that you can put them in your magnetic palettes!
Eyeshadows = £4
Magnetic palette = £5 (currently showing out of stock)
Lash applicator = £4.50
Lashes = £8.50 – £12
Here’s an example of a couple of the eyeshadows and how pigmented they are (pics taken from the site).
Anyone else love Imperial Candles? They are a soy wax candle company who put a nice sparkly surprise inside your scented candle – either a ring, earrings or necklace.
They also do wax melts, bath bombs and bath salts. You can choose what type of jewellery you would like or keep it a total surprise. The design and whether it is 925 sterling silver, 9ct yellow or white gold will also be a surprise. I bought my first candle – cherry vanilla and it smells like cherry bakewells! – a few days ago (and also bought one for my mum at Christmas and I’ve bought my sister one for her 30th next month) and this is what was inside mine.
The ring is 925 sterling silver and the gemstone is Madagascan Ruby. I really want another now. I’ve actually asked my other half if he’d get me one for Valentines Day! Think this will be my new obsession! Move over Yankee Candles, I have a new love!
Hey guys! How’s your weekend going? Just a very short post today I’m afraid….
Got my Yankee Candle lit this evening. Candy Corn has to be my fave Yankee Candle scent! Unlike my other Yankees, this gorgeous sweet smell just lingers all round my flat! It’s beautiful!
I’m trying to use up my candles as I have quite a few so, of late, I’ve been making a concerted effort to light them each night. If anyone has any other scented candles to recommend please let me know. I’d love to try them. Especially if they’re vegan friendly!
