The Year of Saying Yes: Part Two

January can be such a b, right? "Stop drinking all the red wine!" "Stop sitting on the sofa eating chocolate!" "Um, excuse me, it looks like you might be having fun there. Stop that immediately, it's January!"

So many of us fill this month with a huge list of stuff to say no to, just like main girl Izzy in my new book The Year of Saying Yes. But, as the title suggests, Izzy ends up ditching her to-don't list and embarking on 365 days filled with saying yes instead. You know, just the usual stuff, like performing live at Glastonbury. Eek! 

Anyway, part two of the book is out now. Here's a little taster.

The Year of Saying Yes

"It's going to be a breeze!"
"Wow, I should probably set myself some goals so I don't get totally bored."
"Maybe I can write another book."
Such were my thoughts on maternity leave before the bubs arrived.


It turns out that having twins is actually kind of time consuming. I've been swept along in a glorious yet sleep-deprived whirlwind of nappies, feeds and piles upon piles of laundry ever since my baby boys arrived at the end of October. And so that second book I'd be smugly planning has yet to materialise but that's no big deal because guess what you guys? My first book has now been published! Wheeeeee! May I introduce you to The Year of Saying Yes.

Lindsey Kelk "We Were On A Break" blog tour and Q&A

Good news book fans! Lindsey Kelk is back with a brand new novel and some shiny new characters to boot. I've been sinking my teeth into We Were On A Break and, let me tell you, it's another LK corker.

Here's the sitch: Liv and her boyfriend Adam are on vacay and she's convinced he's going to propose. Only their romantic last night in Mexico goes spectacularly wrong and he ends up suggesting a temporary split instead. Ouch. Cue awkward moments, misunderstandings and a whole lotta will-they-won't-they.

The book is written with Lindsey's usual funny, fast-paced style and she's thrown in a few new twists to keep us on our toes. With On A Break we get to hear a male voice for the first time as Adam and Liv switch narration through the book. This totally took me by surprise at first but it's such a great idea, you get a brilliant insight into Liv and Adam's different takes on their romance dramaz.

My vegan-inspired Acai Berry Smoothie Bowl, aka The Kim

When my best friend went vegan a while back I'm ashamed to admit that my reaction was a teeny tiny bit *rolls eyes* at first. What the actual heck was she going to eat now? Twigs? Some half-decomposed apple from a tree, perhaps?

It goes to show how embarrassingly little I knew about the vegan lifestyle. Over the past couple of months I've had the luxury of hanging out with my best one loads... just dreamy given the fact that we live four ferocious hours apart. All the more dreamy thanks to her insistence on feeding me at every single opportunity.
