Falling Forward: A Girl & Her Lists

New Office

Posted by in A Little Conversation

We moved into The Morgan Aracde Studios in Cardiff recently and it gets the most amazing light, almost all day.

Fire Exit

It was nice to pick up my camera after months of just snapping shots at events, rather than anything creative. I’ve got a film waiting to be processed with more shots from the office, I’m excited to see how they turn out!

I’m running a giveaway that ends tmrw! If you like books and money you should check it out since I’m giving away both :)

Friday Thanks

Dear Q,

Thank you for bringing home wheat and dairy free bakewell tarts for me. It’s nice that you know they’re my favourites and that I miss them now I can’t eat any of those things. Bonus (soon to be) husband points for you! :)

Love Sarah

Dear Primark,

Thank you for making a maxi dress that actually fits me. I’ve been searching for one that isn’t two feet too long for such a long time, and you finally came up with the goods. Any chance you can make it in more colours so I can buy them all?

Love Sarah

Book Giveaway!

Posted by in A Little Conversation

To celebrate 12 months of books reviews at Radio Cardiff I’ve decided to do a little giveaway. Mostly because I like books and I have way, way too many in my house. I’ll be away during my September book review slot, so I’ve asked the listeners (and you guys!) to suggest books for me to read on our honeymoon (nothing too heavy, please ;) ).

Up For Grabs:

A £10 Amazon gift voucher +  the following books:
The Psychopath Test – Jon Ronson
The C Word – Lisa Lynch
(possibly signed if Mrs Lynch is up for it :) )
Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom  

Wondering why I picked those books? Jon Ronson I read recently and really enjoyed, Lisa Lynch is a personal hero and Tuesday’s with Morrie is one of my all time favourites.

To enter simply answer this question in a comment below:

What books should I read on my honeymoon?

Please make sure you enter with a valid email address so I can contact you if you win! For an extra entry you can tweet about the giveaway. “Wanna win some books? @miametro is giving them away! http://sarahmia.co.uk/ff/?p=2158” (Please add a separate comment to let me know you’ve tweeted, it’ll make it much easier for me to count the entries :) ) You don’t have to follow the blog or follow me on Twitter (altho I wouldn’t say no if you did, obviously!)

 Just comment with a suggestion, and comment again if you also tweet it. Simple!

The giveaway will be open until 1pm GMT on the 14th of August. Good luck!

Giveaway is sponsored by myself. Open to international entrants.

Dear Sam,

Thank you for buying a copy of your favourite book as a child for me as a birthday present. Guthrie Comes Clean is a book I will cherish for the rest of my life. (Not least because I’m a small, podgy, patchy panda too.)
