Claire x Nikki Review December 2015

BitchinRundownClaire x Nikki Mash Ups

nada! 😦





This month was bananas! I met up with my family in Canada for a week where we visited Niagara Falls, then we all went back home to The Bahamas for a week where I got to see the rest of my family for the first time in three years and eat lots of Bahamian food. It was great!

I wanted to meet up with Claire on my way to or from Heathrow airport, but it was not to be. Boo! We’re planning some hang outs for 2016 though and I’m really excited! We didn’t hang out nearly as much as I’d have liked to in 2015. I think it would help massively if cross country trains weren’t so overpriced (#RenationaliseTheRailNetwork!)…but anyway. Good times are ahead! 🙂

Books Read (let me know if you want a review of any of these!)

South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami (literary fiction) ★★★★☆
Sir Lilypad
 by Anna Kemp (kid lit) ★★★★★

Book of the Month

Sir Lilypad

Miscellaneous Favourites:


Abroad in Japan is a channel by british youtuber, Chris Broad, about his travels in Japan. I think he’s hilarious.


Did I already mention I started watching Jessica Jones? It’s good! At some point I’ll get around to Daredevil too (Don’t worry, Claire! I’m getting to it! haha)




December went by so quickly! We can’t seriously be done already- are we really!?

I couldn’t go home for Christmas, I was well bummed about it but I got to spend a week and a half with a friend in Wales and her family. I also got to text Rinn a bunch which is always a ton of fun. It was a nice break though and I got tons of Bahamian food and cakes and chocolate. Speaking of which, I’m munching on a bunch of quality street as we speak!

  • His Majesty’s Dragon (Temeraire #1) by Naomi Novik
  • The Book of Human Skin by Michelle Lovric

Book of the Month



It’s a tradition in my family to watch the entire LORT extended edition during Christmas. Mostly because that is when we received the DVDs as gift but it’s amazing. I didn’t get to watch them by my friend because I forgot them, boooooo but I am watching them now, yay!


I don’t know where I first heard this song but you can say that I am properly obsessed with it. I just love the way it sound and it makes me want to dance!


How was your December?

    I love that tradition of watching LOTR! My parents and I watched them on New Year’s Eve because they happened to be on TV and it was glorious. 🙂
