The Astrology Series | Aries

Over the past few weeks I have had a sudden interest in astrology and everything that evolves around it. So I have decided to create a series on the various star signs. Each post will go in depth on a specific star sign, including facts, characteristics and their personal life. First up is Aries...

NAME | Aries (The Ram)
DATE | 21st March until 19th April
PLANET | Mars - war and lust
COMPATIBLE STAR SIGNS | Leo, Taurus, Sagittarius and Gemini
LUCKY NUMBERS | 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 1 , 10, 19, 28, 37, 46, 3, 12, 21, 30, 48, 57
LUCKY DAYS | Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday

Your zodiac birth sign represents new beginnings which is why Aries-born individuals are always full of spirit and have such high energy levels. Aries have incredible self-confidence, power and zeal, this makes you very strong in your opinions and some might think this goes hand in hand with having a large ego. They love having new projects and must start these projects immediately otherwise Aries loose interest. They love and aspire to be number 1,  the winner. They want to be the best and work well under adverse situations, meaning 100% is always put in. Aries become impatient very easily and tend to provoke others in situations. The Aries man is known to be "innocent" and "hard to get". The Aries women is known to be "elegant" and a "women on a mission!"

Every Aries needs a stage where one can express themselves and shine. You love to work independently so setting up a business can be very fulfilling as long as others help with the cash! You are a born leader who loves to be in charge and as the warrior sign, you embrace any challenge, and champion every project you take on.

When in love, Aries is a one-on-one person. You put your partner first in every matter, but you expect some in return. Aries love giving their full heart and attention into the relationship, often playing the heroic figure. But often your temper can blindside you at times and end up saying cruel things. Being the sign of 'self' you must always maintain a strong sense of who you are as individual, if you want to succeed in love.

Aries are independent and might not 'need' many friends but you are supportive of a close circle. You want to rule with adventurous and ambitious people who are doing exciting things.

Do you relate to the Aries?

Book Club | Alexa Chung IT

A month?! Yes I know I've taken a break mainly because I had run out of post ideas but now I've got too many to keep locked up. This time I've reduced the stress by only posting once a week or twice if you're lucky (don't get your hopes up!) So welcome me back with lots of comments to motivate me even more! Lets get on with the actual review...

There's no doubt about it that this book is so aesthetically pleasing, but if we get down to the real review the tables turn. The book itself only took a short read with many pages filled with old polaroid images of Alexa herself. I wouldn't exactly call this an autobiography more of a scrapbook meets journal.

There's been many mixed reviews, with many people disliking it or loving it. However they are missing the entire aspect with the fact it's along the lines of pick up when you want to and give it quick flick through - a great addition to your coffee table books!

My favorite parts of the book are when she shows us why she is just like the rest of us even though to the rest of us she might be IT.
She goes on about heartbreak ("Scrolling through photos [on Instagram] of girls your ex may not be shagging won't help you") and even admits that she favours a full brief, ("I'd rather go commando than wedge myself into a g-string"). 

Yes she does get personal but that's what I like about Alexa as she throws herself into it and may I add very witty too! I enjoyed dipping in and out of this book but for £16.99 (or £11.89 on amazon) I do believe that there could have been more too it. However who does not love taking a look into Alexa's life - I'm guilty.

If you love a seemingly good coffee table book or Alexa Chung herself then this is the perfect buy for you!
