Requesting Help With A Post!!

For my Valentine’s Day post I’m going to be writing about alternative perspectives on love. In order to do that, I’m going to have to collect some statements about my given topic from different people. So, my question to you is: ‘What does the word ‘love’ mean to you?’

By love, there is no limit! It can be:

  • Love for a hobby
  • Love for a pet
  • Family Love
  • Love between friends
  • The Love of God
  • Romantic Love
  • And literally anything else you can think of!

Make your statement whatever length you choose, and in whatever format. It can be an image with caption (please ensure this image is your own/royalty free), a picture of a handwritten statement, a tweet or just plain text. It is up to you, and get as creative as you feel. Furthermore, if you would prefer to keep your statement anonymous, then I will make sure that that is the case! Simply specify whether or not you want this anonymity. 🙂

You can make your statement in a number of ways:

  1. Filling out the contact form below!
  2. Sending me a tweet/DM on my Twitter which is @StateOfLawson (probably best for photos)
  3. Posting a photo (if you choose that method) on Instagram and tagging my handle @hannah_grace2001 or sending it via DM
  4. Sending me a link and password to a password-protected post as a comment to this post (I won’t approve the comments so it won’t be visible to anyone else!)

I will not accept any statements with obscene or profane nature. We’re trying to spread the love here! ❤

If you can, please help out, it would mean a great deal! I could also shout out to any bloggers who submit statements but do not mind anonymity if you wish!

Deadline: 13th February 2017!

Thank you always,




My Everyday Essentials

Today’s blog is a quick (well, by my obsessive blogging standards) one, about my everyday essentials.

If you would like to see a video version of this (what’s in my bag? style) then let me know in the comments!

Soundtracked Books (Reading Music): Bringing Books Alive Through Song



A picture of my CD collection, headphones and my (then) current read, Me Before You | Taken from my Instagram Page


Anyone who knows me knows that I have two main obsessions in life: books and music ❤ 🎶 📚 From a very early age, I was reading everything I could find, and I took keyboard lessons. My present for my sixth birthday was my own keyboard, that I have now, nine and a half years later. I have always been in love with music, and I now take singing lessons instead of the keyboard, to aide my Music GCSE. But I am self-taught at keyboard instead 😊

A few months ago, I really focussed in on the fact that music can really enhance my reading experience, especially if the perfect song is playing. And so I started to make ‘Soundtracked Books’ playlists on Spotify for all of my favourite books so that I (when re-reading them) and others could enjoy the music whilst they read. I’ve made these collaborative, so anyone who has any good song suggestions can add to my playlists as well!

Leave a comment about what style of music you like to listen to, and what genre of books you read. Mine tend to be YA/Contemporary Fiction and Alternative/Pop Rock!

I’ve included Spotify section links to them below, and I hope you enjoy! I will update as I create more playlists for more books. I have also included links to the Goodreads pages of the books just in case you want to find out a little more about them! Happy reading!
