Toys 'n' Stuff | Latest Build A Bear buys!

Welcome to today's Toys 'n' Stuff post. This week I got some cuteness in the mail and I figured I might as well make it an unboxing post. I had been eyeing up one of these cuties for a while but I kept putting off buying him as Build A Bear bears take up quite a bit of space and I don't have much of that right now. He was an online exclusive and I was worried he was going to go out of stock and not come back in so I bit the bullet and bought him. Being me - and despite not having much space - I was content with bordering the one bear I'd been wanting for a long time, I also treated myself to one of their new Halloween cuties. You'll understand why when you see him! Now on with the unboxing.

Books 'n' Stuff | Interborough by Santino Hassell

"Everyone thinks their tank is running on infinity. And the more time they think they have, the faster it runs out."

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: 5/5
Author: Santino Hassell
Series: Five Boroughs
Release: 24/10/16
Genre: M/M Romance

Interborough is by arguably one of my favourite authors, Santino Hassell. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you will recognise the name because I have sang his praises before. The third book in this series, First and First, was the first sponsored book review I'd ever done, and then I reviewed the collaboration, Fast Connection, between him and another of my favourite authors, Megan Erickson. You may find those reviews here and here. But first, get ready to listen to me singing his praises once more!

A New Home For Moe

Howdy and welcome to today's post. If you've been following me for a while you may remember a while back I wrote about getting my marimo, Moe. If you missed that post and have no idea what a marimo is you can find it here. In short, a marimo is a ball of algae. You may be asking why anyone would want to keep one of those and basically I think they're hella cute. When I bought Moe they came in a little jar but I switched them out into a bigger one and put some healing crystals in for decoration. I've been meaning to change things up for a while now and thought I'd try a few ideas that I could share with you guys. Enjoy!

Musicals 'n' Stuff | Ghost the Musical

This week my mum asked if I wanted to tag along with my dad and her to see Ghost the Musical at the Grand Opera House in Belfast. I've been itching to see another musical for a while now so I jumped at the chance. She invited my sister, Eva, too but it turned out she was working so she couldn't come. My dad then dropped out also, so it ended up just a mother and daughter night.. My mum and I don't do a lot together despite the fact she's supposed to be my main carer. While our family is close, we don't do a lot as a family. I think now that my parents have moved out, my mum wants to make more of an effort to spend quality time together. I'm totally up for that if it means we get to see more kick ass musicals.

Bloo's Reviews | Second Half by Monica DeSimone

"I could be that tree that bends in the wind. And survive."
Second Half

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: 3/5
Author: Monica DeSimone
Series: Coach's Shadow Trilogy
Release: Available Now
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Second Half by Monica DeSimone is the first instalment of the Coach's Shadow Trilogy and the first book I have read by this author. As such, I had no idea what I was in for but after reading the blurb I looked forward to finding out. Second Half is the story of teenage sweethearts, Zoey and Derrick, trying to find their way back to each other after eight years apart.

Zoey McEvoy has just about got her life back on track. She's a strong, sassy and independent business woman. She founded the Coach's Shadow Foundation in honour of her father. These things didn't come easily to her though. After heartbreak she found herself in the dark depths of depression, resulting in a suicide attempt. But all that is in the past, or so she thinks...

Yet Another Disney Store Haul

Welcome to today's mini Disney Store haul. I picked up these items earlier in the month when I went shopping with my sister for her birthday. I can never resist treating myself, even when it's someone else's birthday. I assure you I spoilt her just as much. Now on with the haul!
