Sarah Hurley Book Club – Confidence: The Secret

Our next Book Club read is one I can’t wait to get stuck into, Confidence: The Secret by the inspirational Katie Piper! ‘Success is a journey, not a destination. It doesn’t happen in a straight line, the path goes off to one side and then the other all the time. But when it veers off track you just get back on it and keep going. Create your own future, and your own closure. Don’t look for happiness in other people,Read more

Keep you Close – Sarah Hurley Book Club

This months book was the psychological thriller Keep You Close by Lucie Whitehouse. As I mentioned in my previous update, after being initially completely gripped by the excellent prologue, I started to lose interest slightly as the book slowed down to lay out the backstory and characters. I have to say, now, at the end, I’m glad I persevered! When I last updated, I had just been drawn back in to this atmospheric thriller. If you are a fan ofRead more

National Scrapbook Day

As today is National Scrapbook Day, I thought I’d share one of my favourite ever Scrapbook pages with you… This is from about five years ago but still remains in my ‘favourites’ album. I love the fact that it’s about something quite random – I just had these Instagram pictures on my phone of random things I liked, I’d received some of the first scrapbook products I ever designed and I thought I’d make a quick page using the randomRead more

The businesses are all different but most (myself included!) are going through the same things.

What’s On The Box?! With Sarah

I’m back this week with another round up of Netflix goodness! First, one I wasn’t so keen on. I had been anticipating the release of the GirlBoss series since it was announced. I binge watched the whole thing over two days as soon as it was released but unfortunately I just didn’t love it I have to be honest. Sophia, who came across pretty brash and forthright in the Girlboss book, was just made to be completely unlikeable in theRead more

Keep you Close – Sarah Hurley Book Club Update

I was completely gripped from the Prologue of this psychological thriller. Starting with a jarring encounter leading to a tragedy, I couldn’t wait to start chapter one where we meet  Rowan, learning of the death of her friend, Marianne. Rowan and Marianne had  obviously had a troubled history but there appears to be a deep bond (I haven’t yet fully discovered why at the point in the book I’m up to!) Lucie’s writing style is very evocative and draws you inRead more

National Tea Day

Huraaah, it’s National Tea Day! As some pretty big tea drinkers here at Hurley HQ, National Tea Day sparked a debate about how to make the perfect cuppa. Milk before water? Sugar after water? Earl Grey or green tea? The combinations are endless and after much debate, we wanted to let you know what our favourite tea combinations are! Chloe I am a standard English Breakfast Tea kind of girl. I like mine with a little dash of milk andRead more
