Audrey is over romance. Since her parents' relationship imploded her mother's been catatonic, so she takes a cinema job to get out of the house. But there she meets wannabe film-maker Harry. Nobody expects Audrey and Harry to fall in love as hard and fast as they do. But that doesn't mean things are easy. Because real love isn't like the movies...

The greatest love story ever told doesn't feature kissing in the snow or racing to airports. It features pain and confusion and hope and wonder and a ban on cheesy clich├ęs. Oh, and zombies...

Manchester Christmas Markets

Last Thursday me and some friends decided to have a wander around the Christmas Markets as it's my first time experiencing them so of course I took my camera along with me to snap a few pictures. There's nothing like a Christmas market to get you in the festive mood and everywhere looked wonderful. The stalls were crammed with Christmas themed gifts and trinkets and don't even get me started on the food stalls. The German section smelt amazing and it took a lot of will power to not just buy everything and forget about the calories.

My Favourite Christmas Adverts

It's officially November which means it's pretty much Christmas and therefore time to start getting into the festive mood. It's also that time when all the Christmas adverts are released and it's honestly one of my favourite parts of the build up to Christmas. The John Lewis advert pretty much kicks off when everybody can start getting excited but whilst watching this years advert, I started thinking back on all my favourite Christmas adverts that have been released over the past few years and I decided to share them with you.
