Teas, books and trips, oh my!

So... I kinda fell off the map for a month and a half there!

So, last update I mentioned that I was going to be going to London - and I did, and I had a fabulous time! The city is beautiful... I am such a history nut, and there's something amazing about going to a place and realising that you are walking where people such as Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII walked, or Lady Jane Grey... We also took a day trip and saw the city of Bath and Stonehenge, which was freaking amazing!

So what have I been doing for the last month and a half? Well, to be honest, I've been sick and then trying to get myself organized. I've been sucked into the organisational side of Youtube and picked up a planner from PlumPlanner Designs, and hopefully that's going to help me keep track of things much better! Here is a link to their shop if any of you are in the market for a planner (other than Erin Condren) and want to check it out! I may post a review once June starts up, as that is when my planner actually starts :)

I've also developed a bit of an obsession with tea (this just over the last week)... See, I spend a crapload of money on coffee. We're talking your grande white mocha at Starbucks every day - a lot of calories + a lot of money, yikes! So I have switched to tea and so far it seems to be going pretty well! I may post a bit about some of my favourites. 

Other than that, though, I really don't have much of an excuse for not updating. I haven't been doing much reading and looking at the last three years, that seems to be a bit of a pattern for me. Perhaps it has to do with the changing of the seasons?

I do have some books that I plan on reading and (hopefully) reviewing, though!

 - Dare to Dream, by Carys Jones: I've actually finished this and plan on posting a review this weekend!
 - A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab
 - A Court of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J Maas
 - An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (this one I got from Edelweiss, so I really should get on top of this!)
 - Uprooted by Naomi Novik (this from Netgalley, again something I should get on top of!)

So that's where I'm at right now, hopefully I'll have another update soon!
