101 in 1001 XXII

After the crazy jam-packed month in August, September has been a lot more relaxed in terms of my goals

#12 Attend an event

Helen and I were invited along to the Thomas Sabo opening in Southampton.

#13 Meet a blogger in real life
I met a whole host of bloggers at London Fashion Week, including the very beautiful Ellie.

#19 Attend London Fashion Week
Marie and I popped down to Somerset House to check out some of the London Fashion Week street style

#60 Put up a shelf
Ok, I didn't put up the shelf myself, but Rich stuck a few up. I have a proper post coming soon, but here's a peek. 

#96 Read 75 books (76/75)
Yay! I did it! Wonder if I can make it to 100 before my 1001 days are up?

#101 Watch all the films
I finally got round to watching the 1962 version of Lolita. I was surprised to find that the 1997 remake was almost identical in terms of the script. 

After I finished reading The Book Thief, I also watched the film adaptation. Although it's unusually true to the novel, I somehow found it a lot more beautiful than the soul-destroying heartbreak of the book. 


  1. What is Ellie's blog link lovely? Also love those floating shelves.

  2. I've been meaning to watch one of the film adaptation of Lolita for ages- would you recommend one more out of the two? x

  3. I was SO happy with the movie rendition of The Book Thief. The Book Thief is my all-time favorite book, and I was so excited/scared for the movie... and I was not let down.

    I feel like I didn't hear enough about the movie though?? It seemed a very quiet enterprise for such a well-known and loved book.

  4. I can safely say, you may have read more books now than I have read in my life!

  5. This is a great idea to set yourself goals each month, I need to start doing that as so many of my personal pursuits go neglected!
