I was absolutely over the moon to be chosen as one of six to review M P Wright's forthcoming book All thought the Night - see a wee sneak preview here. It's due to be launched in April 2016. 

I totally loved his first novel Heartman my review of which you can see here. I'm looking forward to finally meeting Mark when he comes to Edinburgh to promote his book!


Our trip to London see HERE. Also meeting up with Sam & Nardine (@HoneyGo_Lightly and  @Miss_Nardine) I also loved visiting all my favourite perfume shops - see HERE.


My November highlight was the gorgeous watercolour my friend Emily at Fleurelle Illustrations painted for me - it featured my favourite things and I just love it!

  1. Lovely highlights. It's sometimes easy to forget what we did, because life moves on at such a pace. What a great way to bring those memories back. Thank you so much for featuring me, that is so kind. Certainly for me too, the friendships I've made with other bloggers is very special. Without that blogging would lose so much of its richness. Your support and exchanges are precious to me. Thank you! Have a lovely New Year Sandra. Txxx

    1. Too true! No problem at all. Love our support network and friendship. You too Tracey x

  2. lovely highlights, Sandra! I love White + Elm♥ Wishing you the best in 2016!!
