Five Things & Five Blogs I Love #10

Coming of Age Stories. 
My most recent love has been Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

Sweet Chilli Sauce. 
On most things. On chips. With noodles. Even in sandwiches. Yep, it's an issue!

New Pillows. 
Ohh it's like falling asleep on clouds.

Lighter Evenings. 
I've been getting so much more done, although I keep forgetting to make dinner because I'm always thinking 'but it's so light, it can't be 6pm already!'

Having an 'editorial calendar'
It's nothing fancy, I just drew one out on a piece of paper, but it's been so much more helpful than I thought it would be. Having a plan helps infinitely.

  1. Ahh new pillows - heaven! On sweet chilli sauce - mix it with peanut butter and use it to coat skewered pieces of chicken - it might sound weird, but turns out it tastes gorgeous!! Oh I might have to share that recipe on my blog now... you've got me thinking about it! xx

  2. How beautiful is the cover of that book?! I think I'd read it based on purely that alone, which is really bad but honest at least! I also know what you mean about the lighter evenings, roll on summer I say! xx

    A while ago I almost bought the book, I can't even remember why I ended up buying another book, but seeing and hearing about it makes me regret my choice haha. Also, I agree with you on the lighter evenings. It really lifts my mood.

  11. Ah, lighter evenings are fantastic :) One of the things I love most about the summer months! xxx

  12. How beautiful is the lettering on that cover?! I love having lots of pillows as well. I have three on my bed at the moment and my mom asked me if I really need that many pillows. Yes mom, I do.
