As the nights draw in and the days get cooler, it’s the perfect time for snuggling up in bed with lots of pillows, fluffy socks, a mug of hot chocolate and a book.

I’m always on the look out for another book to order or something else to download on my kindle, so here are my top picks for the season. Don’t forget to share your own autumn favourites in the comments, too.

This week has been one of those that goes on and on and on. After such a fun weekend, most days this week have felt like Friday, but then the cold light of day descends and my alarm goes off at 7am the next morning, as always.

The weekend has mercifully come along now and I’m not even very happy about it. That’s because of a slightly terrifying event that is happening. After months of attempting to train, it’s time for me to do my half marathon and I’m a bit terrified. Lots of 6am starts and endless Sunday morning runs have lead up tot his point. Am I ready? Another few weeks definitely wouldn’t go amiss, but I’m ready to get out there and get it done now.

Also this week, I got to go on a boat trip up the River Thames with work and I ate the best fish and chips in London.

Since moving to London just over a year ago, I’ve seen 16 musicals. It’s fair to say that I’m a little bit obsessed!

Now that people are starting to realise just how often I head to the theatre, I’ve had a fair few people asking me to recommend a show for them. It’s always tough, especially because different shows will suit very different people. I’ve decided to try to answer this questions through a handy blog post of my top 10 favourite shows ever. Not all of them are still showing in London but a lot of them are.

I’ve also ranked them in order. The top four are practically all my favourites, but I’ve managed to put them into a hierarchy. What do you think will claim the top spot?

It’s been another packed week, with house hunting, Five Guys, the theatre, and even a secret roof terrace on the top of the Houses of Parliament. Technically, I shouldn’t have been up there, but I couldn’t resist the offer to see Westminster from this unique vantage point.

Read on to find out if the view was really as good as it sounds, and to discover my favourite blogs of the week.

#fringeproblems

My fringe and I have a love-hate relationship. When I sat in the hairdressers chair back in October 2013 watching my long side fringe falling on the floor, I couldn’t stop smiling. Dramatically changing your hairstyle is always worrying, especially when you have no idea what you’ll look like after the change. Luckily for me, I’ve decided that I suit my full fringe and I’ve kept it ever since.

But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have our issues. Since then, I’ve wanted to grow it out every few months, but never seem to commit. Yes, there are definitely good parts and bad parts…
