(7) Wild Beauty // Bookish Blurb

33158561Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore

Basically this book is about a group of women (specifically five cousins) who can make flowers grow. However the men that they love are cursed to disappear and if they ever try to leave the land they live on, they will die.

Overall, I found this book disappointing. I think something about the way it was written made it hard to read I guess. I just wasn’t drawn into the book. Also it probably didn’t help that there were so many characters. Continue reading “(7) Wild Beauty // Bookish Blurb”

(63) The Language of Flowers // Bookish Blurb

The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It’s about Victoria who has spent her whole life feeling unloved and unlovable. She turns 18 and ages out of the foster system and has to live on her own. Although at first she struggles, it is her love and knowledge of flowers which helps her survive. Continue reading “(63) The Language of Flowers // Bookish Blurb”

Dumyat pt.1 // Scotland

CIMG5143xDid you ever read books growing up where they mentioned fields of bluebells? I never really thought that they were real until I went to Scotland and saw fields of bluebells in the spring.

If you’ve read my other scotland walk posts, you may remember that there was a hill/mountain behind the building where I lived. In the spring (after all the snow had melted and the bluebells were out) one of my flatmates and I went up Dumyat. She had already been up it before which I was grateful of because there is no clear path and I probably would have gotten lost without her. Continue reading “Dumyat pt.1 // Scotland”

Yet Another Walk // Scotland

I have no idea what this building used to be or why it was still on the campus.

And one more walk that I went on while I was in Scotland. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the photos recently.

In my wandering around I realized that there was a bee farm on campus. Hence why there were so many bees.

CIMG5097xCIMG5117xI hope you enjoyed these pictures. Sorry this post isn’t quite as nice as sometimes. It seems as though I am running out of posts to post so I might have to start scaling back to only one post a week. I’ll try to keep doing two for the rest of the year but we’ll see how that goes.

 

Hyde Park

CIMG6393aWhen my parents came and visited me at the end of my Scotland trip we ended up in London for a few days since I wanted to spend a little time there and also our flights left from there. OneĀ  of the things we did while we were in London was walk through Hyde park. I really don’t know much about Hyde park but it’s a famous beautiful park in London and here are some pictures from it.
