Lifestyle Medicine|The Books That Have Helped Me

Recently I have been on a journey to better my health through lifestyle medicine. This doesn’t mean that I think a good diet and exercise will cure everything, but that it does lay the foundation for being in the best health possible for your body. Lifestyle Medicine is a term that I had heard buzzing…

REVIEW: Spare Change by Iona Bain

My job as a content writer finds me researching a multitude of topics each week. Learning new things is one of my favourite parts of my job! As part of this I’ve learned a lot about finance and I’ve found this knowledge very empowering. I might not be saving as much as I’d like yet,…

REVIEW: Vengeance in Venice by Philip Gwynne Jones

Hi guys, I have been majorly behind on reviewing what I’ve been reading recently. Work and my own writing have got in the way but I thought I would get back to it by writing some quick reviews of the books I read in April. I’ll try and post more regularly again, but I am…

REVIEW: The Woman In The Window by A J Finn

My addiction to crime fiction and psychological thrillers continues. This is another novel that I had heard a fair bit about and new that I needed to read, in fact I read the hardback rather than waiting for the paperback. It’s has been months since Anna Fox, a psychologist, left her home. She lives alone,…
