New Girl

We love a good TV show, especially if it’s a long running series, so we thought it would be fun to make it a bit of a feature here at BCC. Every fortnight we will be talking about the shows we are currently watching, whether they are re-runs of old classics or a shiny new series we’re excited about. This week, it’s all about Vikings, Whitechapel, and New Girl. CAROLYN I’m currently watching the second season of New Girl. I’ve been meaning to watch this series for ages and as I have recently signed up to LOVEFiLM I…


I’ve been looking for a vanity tray for some time, so when I came across this little beauty on Amazon I couldn’t resist. This vanity tray from the Love Noir range by Vera Wang cost me £22.99 + £5.25 p&p. I think this was a pretty good deal as everywhere else I’d looked it was a bit more expensive, and most places were selling it for the RRP of £40 + p&p, so a good saving I think for such a well known designer. The tray is so cute, and although…

June Monthly Favourites

Today’s video is my monthly favourites, so all the things I loved and enjoyed during June. There’s a lot of gushing over the cuteness of Funko Pops, so beware lol 😉 EDIT: I know I say “Nick” Grimes instead of “Rick” Grimes – silly knob-end. I did annotate as a correction but it seems to be a bit finicky and doesn’t always show up! 😀 Click the image to access the video, or click here.

The Summer of Good Intentions by Wendy Francis

If you fancy a somewhat more intense read this summer, then I’d recommend The Summer of Good Intentions by Wendy Francis, which I received from NetGalley. Primarily, the book is about three very different sisters and their respective families, who are all brought together for their annual holiday at their parents’ summer home. Told via the sisters’ (and their father’s) alternating perspectives, the book begins by setting the scene at the summer house with the eldest sibling, Maggie. Known as the organiser and carer of the family, Maggie’s maternal instincts…

I'm the Kind of the Castle by Susan Hill

I have read a lot of books in my life, but most of them I read, enjoy, and then ultimately forget. There are, however, a few books that change me. The kind of books that stay with you long after you’ve read them. The kind of books that affect you emotionally, swell your heart, hurt your heart, make your heart ache. The kind of books that make you boil with rage, or make you think and evaluate your opinions, or teach you something new. The kind of books that you can’t put down,…

Not So New in Town by Michele Summers

Having decided to take inspiration from the recent good weather, I downloaded Not So New in Town by Michele Summers from NetGalley and dived straight in. Although this is the second in the Harmony Homecomings series, it reads a standalone title and I had no problem getting to grips with the town and its characters. We are first introduced to our heroine, Lucy Doolan, en route to her hometown of Harmony, North Carolina, following the loss of her job and her boyfriend. Forced to take time out to rebuild her…

Pippa's Cornish Dream by Debbie Johnson

A summer romance with an abundance of country charm, Pippa’s Cornish Dream by Debbie Johnson is a standout title for this season. Having read and loved her Christmas romance novel, I was thrilled to see this title pop up on NetGalley and knew I had to give it a read. Our protagonist is Pippa Harte, a young woman in her early twenties who has been acting as a guardian for her younger siblings since she was eighteen. Their parents died in an accident just before Pippa was due to leave…
