I Heart Series by Lindsey Kelk

The I Heart Series is a book series written by author Lindsey Kelk there are six books in total, I Heart New York, I Heart Hollywood, I Heart Paris, I Heart Vegas, I Heart London and finally I Heart Christmas.

The Books are based around Angela who flees to New York after finding her cheating fiancĂ© Mark in the back of their car with his pants around his ankles and getting cosy with his tennis partner. After making great use of the hotel mini-bar Angela befriends Jenny the hotel concierge who helps her over come her break up and helps her decide what she will do with her new life. Along with her new American friends and a job blogging for a magazine, all Angela needs is a man, then along comes Alex - ah Alex every girls dream guy- the lead singer of the band the Stills and the perfect man for Angela. Throughout the series Angela, Jenny -and Alex - embark on many ups and downs, such as Heading to Hollywood and outing a hot film star James Jacobs, getting her suitcase blow up by airport security and having a fight onstage with Alex's ex-girlfriend. Nearly being deported, getting engaged at Rockefeller Centre, trying to plan a wedding in 7 days, inviting her ex to her wedding, then finally getting married in New York. Angela then is promoted to interim editor of her magazine,  while looking after her broken hearted best friend Louise, trying to talk Jenny and James out of having a baby together and trying to spend more time with Alex and move into their new Brooklyn house all before her parents come and vista for Christmas Day.

Now thats just a run- down of all the books, I've just finished reading them for the second time and I still fall in love with the books ever time, some days I couldn't put it down. I think I like the books so much because Angela is a lot like me and they make me want to move to the states all the more. Be sure to pick up a copy of the books from your local bookstore or from the iTunes Book Store.

How I Met Your Mother Final

After the shocking finale episode of the How I Met Your Mother's nine season run on Monday 31st, it has took me a whole week to come to terms with another of my favourite shows ending. It has also took me the whole week to work out how I feel about the surprising finale moments of the beloved show. WARNING Spoilers - So the episode begins at the recepetion party of Barney and Robins wedding where Ted leaves early to catch his train back to the city so he can leave for Chicago. During he wait at the train station the episode fast forwards 3 years into the future where upon we find out that after 3 years of marriage we learn that Barney and Robin have gotten a divorce, Lilly is pregnant with baby number 3 and Marshall decides to become a judge -Judge Fudge to be exact- Ted and the mother are engaged and have a baby. In the next scene we see that Marshall and Lilly decide to finally sell the apartment that was once Ted, Lilly and Marshalls and find a bigger house for their family, Robin who hasn't been seen by the gang for a while is now a World Wide News Correspondent and tells Lilly that the gang can't be the same anymore and that they all have to Grow up and move on with their lives.

Fast forward another couple of years Barney goes for a Perfect Month -Eww- but then informs the gang that he is going to be a father.... 9 months later after claiming he would never change after holding his new baby girl for the first time you see a different side to Barney appear on screen right in front of your eyes. Ted and the Mother - who we learn is called Tracy after a cute first meet with her and Ted under the Yellow umbrella- at this point are still not married so instead of a big planned affair they bite the bullet and her married in a lovely ceremony with just their close friends. Now to the year 2030 we finally get to hear the words we've been waiting to hear Ted say since the Pilot "and that kids in How I Met Your Mother" Only to find out that after a cute montage of photos of Ted the mother and their children we find out that the Mother -Tracey - after falling ill has died six years prior to Ted telling his Kids the story. Now in the last few minutes of the episode the twist is probably the most shocking, the kids now after hearing the story tell Ted that the whole story is about his feelings for Robin and the kids then encourage him to go and tell Robin how he feels. The episode ends with Ted out side Robins apartment holding up a blue french horn just as he did in the first episode.

So I've basically told you the whole plot of the final episode and the ending -Sorry-    I thought that the finale tied up the show perfectly but I still came away thinking what has just happened and I had the feeling for disappointment when it ended. What disappointed me the most was not that they killed off the mother - sad that it was and it did make the title of the show a little confusing - but I feel that was something that was right in the end because the show is all about lifes ups and doesns and that not everything has a perfect happy ending. What disappointed me the most was that Barney and Robin got a divorce, after them dedicating a whole series of the show to their wedding and the fact that I had always loved Barney and Robin as a couple ever since they first got together all the way until the proposal - I cry every time- Robin was right for Barney and I was never really a fan of Ted and Robin as a couple but thats my opinion. I do however feel that Barney becoming a father was the best possible ending for him and I wish Lilly and Marshall got a bit more of an ending that they deserved. However it was a good finale and a great way to end the show and it was how the show was  meant to end from the beginning -genius on the writers part having kept it a secret for nine years- How I Met Your Mother wasn't the best TV ending of all time - I mean Friends is pretty hard to beat- but it was the perfect way to sign off a hilarious nine year run.

California Road Trip

In Summer last year me and my family went on a California Road Trip. It was one of the best holiday's I've ever been on and I'm going to share some photos with you of our trip. While we in the States we also flew across to New York which you can see my blog post on here .

We flew from the UK to San Francisco where we started our trip. We stayed there for a few days then began our journey from San Francisco to San Diego. During the trip which lasted 2 weeks we stopped off at Yosemite national park, Monterey Bay and we traveled down the Big Sur. We then Stopped off in Burbank for a night and also took a visit to The Warner Brothers Studio, where we got to see the Friends set and sit on the famous Orange sofa! (its a lot smaller than you think)

The Next morning we carried on our trip across state lines to Las Vegas Nevada for a couple of nights, which altogether was a great experience even though the heat unbearable. After Vegas we headed back to California and onto Los Angeles. Los Angeles was my favourite place in California, during our time there we visited Santa Barbra- I have never seen anywhere as beautiful as Santa Barbra. We also visited Santa Monica where we cycled along the beach all the way to Venice Beach, I  just wish I could do that every day. Then onto San Diego where we only stayed one night but we did have time to squeeze in a little visit to Comic Con which was happening that weekend. I've never been one for all the Comic books,superhero or marvel characters but it was amazing to see how much effort people put into their costumes to look like there favourite characters. This was without a doubt one of the best holiday's I've ever had and allowed me to have a variety of new and different experiences, I'm already planning my next trip to the states!
