Review : - I love baking everything from cupcake, cakes, biscuits, muffins and everything in between. I am always the baker in the family so when I saw this book in the store in Saturday I had to buy it so on Sunday I sat at home looking though it to see what I would make first. There is so much to choose from.
I have so many baking books so when I wanted to buy this my husband was like ‘another one’ but this one beats the other by far so many different recipes, easy to follow intrusions and the pictures in the book want you to make them because they look so yumm
If you know anyone that LOVES baking you should get them this book for their birthday or even Christmas.
I can not say anything bad about this book I just love it that much. This for is a 10 out of 10 baking book it really is a put buy.

I will take some pictures of my cupcakes a post them all for you when I make some more.

Sharon Osborne - Revenge

Sharon Osborne - Revenge
I loved Sharon’s My Autobiography book, I’ve never been a big fan of the Osborne but something about that book made me want to read it and I loved it. I really to advice people to read the book, its all about her and Ozzys life together it really is a good read.
Anyway Sharon Osboune - Revenge when I saw this in the store I wanted to buy it because I wanted to know how she would write about other thing not just her life and because the cover looked really cool. On the front it says “Two sister. One Dream. Winner takes all” which make you want to pick the book up.

Synopsis :- Amber and Chelsea Stone are sisters who share the same dream - huge, global fame. As children they were close, but success has pulled them apart. Both have the looks, the talent, and the star quality - but only one has the ruthless ambition to make it to the very top. And she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Review :- So I think I read this book with in about a day or so I liked the book I didn’t love it like her Autobiography but I did like it. The book is action packed and there is not a dull moment in it. It starts from London then moves to LA. The book has everything in it from suicide, rape, sex scenes, birth and platinum albums.
This is a pacy book and it keeps you interested all the way through, you can not skip a few pages because you will miss so many of the plots in the story you have to read every page. But to be honest you will want to read every page its just one of though books.

Hi everyone so you know that I going to post My Worlds on to my main blog now so I can look at what you all think. So since my girl night in watching Grey’s anatomy I am feeling a lot better and I am starting to feel more like my self again yeah..

I told her about it and she couldn’t stop laughing. Me and Stacey have been friends for about 10 years or so now, and when we were in school wwe both said that we were going to live in New York for a year and just let free. So the dream just made us both think about that.

I was thinking about writing about it in my blog with the post saying My Book, what do you all think?

The Second Short Life Of Bree Tanner

The Second Short Life Of Bree Tanner - Stephenie Meyer

Before I start my review on this book I will tell you what I thought on the Twilight Saga. I loved them there like my favourite series of book. I haven’t done a review on them because everyone’s done one on it so I thought I’d leave it.

The story tells Bree Tanner’s life as a newborn vampire and her connection with the other newborn vampires turned by Victoria in order to kill Bella. Bree makes friends, with sort of love interest with Diego, another vampire of the group, since both of them feel that they have been used and have doubts about the real intentions of their leader, plus: her vision is different and bloodless than other newborn vampires. Diego mysteriously disappears, leaving Bree even more confused and disconcert. Through the road, Bree makes friends with Fred, also known as 'Freaky Fred', a relegated vampire, he is the only gifted vampire within this covern and has a rare gift that works as a shield. He makes others feel sick when they look or even think about him and so can become invisible to others. He and Bree strike up an unusual friendship and he tries to convince Bree to leave with him.

So what did I think of this book………. At first I was a bit questiony about this book thinking that it wasn’t going to be half as good as the Twilight Saga but I wrong so wrong I loved this book just as much as them. Even though I knew what was going to happen to Bree I really wanted her to be OK.
I really liked the new characters Diego and Fred, I really found it interesting seeing the inner workings of the newborn army before they started battle with the Cullen family. It showed what there life was like as newborns, they were lied to, threatened and killed if they did not do as they were told. They were told that they had to kill the Cullen’s.
The book really shows the inside life of the newborns and you get to see the volturi in a whole new light and you get to see what Victoria and Riley were really like.
If you’re a Twilight fan (which I think everyone is) you will really need to this book it gives you another view on Eclipse.

I heart Paris

Angela is in the city of love -- but romance is taking a nose-dive! When Angela Clark's boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance. But even as she's falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone's conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tete-a-tete with his ex in a local bar, Angela's dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing down around her. With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can't decide if should stay and face the music or run away home!

I was so excited to read I heart Paris and I finished it in one day, this book picks up from where I heart Hollywood finishes. Like the other two books you really feel like your in Paris as she describes the sense so well.
If you enjoyed I heart New York and I heart Hollywood you will love this book too. The reason I finished this book in one day was because I wanted to find out was Angela was going to do next and what was going to happen to Angela and Alex at the end.

I loved all 3 books but I might love New York just a bit more. EVERYONE GO OUT AND READ THEM.

I heart Hollywood

Angela Clark fell head over heels for New York, but will the sun-drenched glamour of Hollywood win her heart? Angela Clark can't believe her luck! she's an English girl living in New York with a dream job at hip magazine The Look and a sexy boyfriend. Her latest assignment takes her to Hollywood to interview hot actor and fellow Brit James Jacobs.Thrown in at the deep end she heads west with best friend Jenny dreaming of Rodeo Drive and Malibu beach. Soon Angela discovers that celebrity life in Hollywood is not all glamour, gloss and sunshine. Despite his lady-killer reputation, the only person who seems genuine is James. Then a paparazzi snaps them in an uncompromising position and suddenly Angela is thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons! Can she convince all those close to her -- especially her boss and her boyfriend -- not to believe everything they read? And will Hollywood ever win Angela's heart?

I loved I heart New York an couldn’t wait to start reading I heart Hollywood and I was not disappointed at all. This book fun and genuinely funny, it is full of excitement and fun this book made me laugh so much.
This book is light and fluffy and everything is going Angela’s way, this is a book that you can escape and relax too with a nice cup of tea.
If you are like me we will know the characters from I heart New York so I really wanted to know what they got up to in this book.
I do recommend this book to everyone. For me this was the prefect book to read to escape to my happy place.

I heart New York

I heart New York - Lindsay Kelk
It's official. Angela Clarke is in love -- with the most fabulous city in the world. Fleeing her cheating boyfriend and clutching little more than a crumpled bridesmaid dress, a pair of Louboutins and her passport, Angela jumps on a plane, destination - NYC. Holed up in a cute hotel room, Angela gets a New York makeover from her NBFJenny and a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps. Before she knows it, Angela is dating two sexy guys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her new blog (Carrie Bradshaw eat your heart out). But it's one thing telling readers about your romantic dilemmas, it's another figuring them out for yourself ! Angela has fallen head over heels for the big apple, but does she heart New York more than home?

I loved this book so much! A summer must have. This book has everything a girl would want to read about shopping, boys, friends, feud and best of all New York City. The more I read the book the more I wanted to go to New York so when I got to the end of the book I was even more happy that the book has a guide to New York from hotels, bars, shops everything. This book is just that good I can’t even put into words. If you love Sex and the City read this book. I have also read I heart Hollywood and Paris which I will review as well. But I will warn you that once you finish this book you will want to go to New York I did and now I’m going next year yeah. So New York City here I come.

Getting over Mr Right - Chris Manby

Ashleigh finds out via Facebook that she's been dumped by the guy she thought was Mr Right. But unable to just walk away, she embarks on an obsessive campaign to win Michael back and is more than willing to stalk her prey - both in real life and cyberspace. As she works through all the stages of a break-up - from denial when she turns up at his office to propose, through to anger when she constructs a voodoo doll - much more than her love life starts to suffer. This is the perfect book for those wanting to move on to the laughter stage. It's a light-hearted read that provides a very funny take on being dumped.

So what did I think of the book :- I loved the book I really did, I just could not put the book down. For me this book will be in my list of favourite books. Some parts of this book I was laughing out loud ( I just could not stop myself) and there were some parts where I was cringing with some of the thing Ash was doing, but when you read this book it will make you think I would have done the same thing lol. I would tell people to go out and read this book because it really is a fun read.
All the characters in the book are great as they all try to make Ash with this stalker-like behaviour.

I have read other books of Chris Manby and I can’t wait to tell you all what I think of though.

I think that every girl in the world should own this book, I got it and loved it, I then got it for my sister and my mum.
For me Victoria Beckham is one of the best style icons out there and people want to copy her style ( I know I do ), but who can afford the top label clothes. NOT ME.

But this book is great she talks about nearly every part of fashion there is, from shirt to pants to shoes to underwear to accessories. For me this is my fashion Bible.

Its got everything from style do's to style no-No's to

  • Learning how to dress for a special occasion

  • Shopping for everyday wear and where to look for it

  • Accessories

  • Helpful looks for holiday

  • Making the most of your wardrobe

At the back of the book it tells you websites of where you can get everything from.

To be honest I can not big this book enough. I loved every chapter, word and picture in it. I've had it a while now and still read it for tips. I can not say a bad word about this book.

James Patterson

I love James Patterson book and I didn't know which one of his book to choose to write about so I choose one on random and got........

Beach Road. I hop you have read this book because I love it. I started reading this book when I had to go on a 3 hour drive to London and I just could not put the book down I finished the book within 2 days.

So this is what it is about:-

Tom Dunloey has a one man law firm in the richest resort in America, East Hampton, here are the summers to the mega rich and the mega celebrities. His client list comes from the people he grow up with, the people who serve on the movie mogul, the models and the corporate people who walked along the beach every summer.

Then an old friend of Tom's, a local star athlete, is arrested for a triple murder on the beach near a movie star's mansion. Tom know that Dante Halleyville is innocent. Dante asks Tom to represent him in what could be the trial of the century, and this if the first time for Tom that her will be in the public eye.
Tom know that he will not be able to this alone so he recruits Manhattans super lawyer Kate Costello to help him. She's a tough hire because she is his ex girlfriends, and Kate has seen him at his worse.
The main thing that the two of the have to do is figure out who really killed the three girls and why did they go to such big length to set up Dante as the killer. Even thought Tom wonders if Kate can ever forgive him for his past sins the case takes on astonishing dimension which is reveling a world of illegal pleasures, revenge and fear among the mega rich.
With the whole of America watching him, Tom arranges a number of revelations to lure the real killer out of hiding - and what emerges is staggering to everyone. No one could imagine the killer to be this ruthless.
The final scenes of the book unveil the truth which is soooo unexpected that is will leave readers gasping in shock.
I truly loved this book I even got my mum and sister to read is as well and now they are hooked on James Patterson and let me tell you once you read his book you will be too.

Mini Shopaholic.

I'm really looking forward to reading this book BUT its not out until September, but the cover we can see, as you can see front he cover it shows Becky with her daughter coming back from a shopping trip.
So just looking at the cover I know its going to be good.
Here's a synopsis of the book:-
Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) thought motherhood would be a breeze but it's trickier than she thought. Two year old Minnie is a little tearaway who has created havoc everywhere from Harrods to Harvey Nicks to her own christening. She hires taxis at random, her favourite word is 'mine', and she already has a penchant for Balenciaga bags. Becky is at her wits' en. On top of this, she and Luke are still living with her Mum and Dad, there's a big financial crisis so every one's having to Cut Back - including all her personal shopping clients - and her husband Luke is feeling low after the death of his beloved stepmother. To cheer Luke up, Becky decides to throw him a surprise birthday party - on a budget - and that's when things become really complicated. As Becky tries to keep the arrangements a secret, misunderstanding and excuses sprout everywhere, and soon she's told so many fibs she can't keep track of them. Will Becky pull off the surprise? Will Minnie give everything away? Will Minnie's godparents ever stop arguing? Who will end up on the naughty step and who will get a gold star? And what will happen when Becky discovers Luke is keeping a big secret too?

Shopaholic and Baby

In the 5th book, Life could not be more prefect for Becky, she's happily married and is having a baby.

In this book Becky is visiting shop after shop picking up clothes but not for herself but for the little baby she about to have.
Becky faces a;pt of hard decisions in this book such as finding a baby friendly house, the prefect pram, there so much to do. The support she is getting from the family is fantastic.

Becky finds a really way to help with her morning sickness and that is in retail therapy. Becky also gets the best doctor in town, she tried really hard to get this doctors, only to find out that she is Luke's ex! Becky tries to ignore the number of signs that Luke is cheating on her with the doctor. She thinks of a few things to help her figure things out, should she spy in him or not, but on the other hand Luke is very supportive of the pregnancy and acts as if nothing is wrong.

So how will Becky and Luke get through this?

You MUST, MUST read this book I love it.

Shopaholic and Sister

The fourth book in the series, in this book Becky is on her honeymoon in Sri Lanka.

When they arrive back home for Becky's friend Suzi baby christening Luke is in for a very big shock. Unknown to Luke Becky has been spending a little to much and arranging items to be delivered over to her. With this Luke is NOT happy an puts Becky on a strict Budget. Which Becky is finding very hard to and her best friends Suzi has found a new best friend.

So now she is on a strict budget, doesn't have a job and her beloved Suzi has a new friend. But then she receives the best news in the world she has a long lost sister. For Becky this is the best thing ever Finally a sister.

They will have so much in common, they can go shopping together, choose shoes together, have manicures together. Until she meets her and gets the shock of her life. This can not be true. Surely Becky Bloomwood's sister can't hate shopping?

If you ask me each books gets better and better. Becky might be married but that doesn't mean she has settled down.

Shopaholic Tie the Knot

This book starts with Becky living with her boyfriend Luke in Manhattan. She found the prefect job as a personal shopper at Barney's and is helping her best friend Suzi plan her wedding.
At the wedding Becky catches the bouquet of flowers and later gets a marriage proposal from Luke.

In the book Becky is caught in the middle of her mother who want to plan a big wedding for her in England and Luke's mother who wants to plan her a big wedding at the Plaza in New York, Becky can't seem to say no to either one of them, but the big problem for Becky is that they are both planing the wedding on the same day. As Becky normal does she puts it off to later as Becky does, but when the time comes for Becky to tell one of the mothers where they are getting married, she just can't seem to make a decision and hurts Luke's mother or her own mother.

The book is not so much about the shopaholic thing it is more about Becky's wedding and her inability to say no and hurt people. As this is happening this leads to lies and Luke being the good gentlemen he is keeps telling Becky that it is OK and all he wants is a date and time.

With this book we will sometimes laugh out loud, as it is really fun.

Shopaholic Abroad

For Rebecca Bloomwood life is great she has a great job on telly telling people how to mange their money and she has been offered a deal to write her on self help book. For a change her bank manger is being nice even though she is overdrawn, and to top it all up her boyfriend is moving to New York and has asked Becky to move with him. The Museum of Modern Art! The Guggenheim! The Metropolitan Opera House! Becky does plan on going to these places, but it just seems silly not to go to a few places first. Like Bloomingdale's. And Saks. And that amusing place that she can buy a Prada dress for $10 or was that $100.

Anyway, it full of fantastic bargains. Shopaholic Abroad. Because there just aren't enough shops in Britain.

I loved this book more than the first one. I finished it in to days I just could not put it down, I finished it and picked on the third one.

Dreamworld of a Shopaholic

Everyone say hello to Rebecca Bloomwood.

When you look at her she has everything, she's confident, single and happy. She's a journalist and spends he working life telling people how to mange their money, but she spend her leisure time shopping and more shopping.

She's uses retail therapy as her answer to all her worries. Her credit card bills are piling up and her bank is going into draft. She tries to cut back but it just does not work, so she tries to make more money by applying for more jobs.

To escape from her problems she goes to the one place where she will be comforted shopping, it soon hits her hard when her credit cards are not working.

The bank are trying to get in touch with her but Becky tries hard to avoid them. Becky soon starts to appear on the tell on a show called The Morning Coffee. She starts to appear on the show more and more so the bank stop calling her, but Dersk Smeath (the bank manger) is keeping a very close eye on her.

I love this book and everything about it. I t was great and I really do advice girls who love shopping to read this.
