My second vlog! I am such a noob to videos though, as you can tell. My camera decided to only film in 10 minute blocks, which I didn't know! So this is 2 videos clipped together. It also ends abruptly, as I didn't realise I was nearly at the end of my time. Oh well. I ramble a lot more in this, but you get to have a good nose at what's in my bag. This is a clearer photo of my new Cath Kidston bag that my Mum bought for me. I've used it every single day since I got it.
It's the perfect size for carrying around the essentials; not too small, not too big. I always have to have a bottle of water and a book in my bag (along with the other essentials such as phone, purse, etc). What do you always have to have in your bag?

I can't resist a pretty book cover and these are no exception. I saw them announced on the Penguin Books twitter today; they are the result of a collaboration between (Product) Red and Penguin Books. They have released a set of 8 classics, with reworked covers all in red. Half of the profits go towards (Product) Red, which is a charity trying to eliminate aids in Africa. So not only do the books look great, but they can help do great things too. I ordered a copy of Therese Raquin by Emile Zola this morning. I also love the cover for The House of Mirth, but since I already have a copy of that book my common sense told me not to buy it. I am such a sucker for pretty books though. I constantly walk around the library in work picking up books that I want to read based solely on the cover. Shallow, moi? Do you judge a book by it's cover?

Finally, I just wanted to thank you all for your lovely comments on my video post. I will most certainly try to do one again soon. For those of you who complimented me on my accent: extra thanks! I'm from a little town just outside Liverpool, but lots of people always say I don't sound like I'm from around here so I'm not quite sure where my accent is from really. It does have a very slight scouse tinge to it, but not too much.
