The Sunday Catch-Up #3 | Where Am I Going Next?

I realise that it has been three months since we last checked in with each other, so I figured it was time to do another update. It’s been a really rainy weekend which sucks if you had plans for going out, but great for the likes of me who likes staying in sometimes to write! (In fact, it’s the perfect weather to write in, ha.) I like writing these types of posts because it helps me juggle my mind a bit more and lets me know where I am with myself. So as much as it’s a post for you as a reader, it’s also a post for myself, therapeutically. It’s funny but sometimes I don’t even know what’s on my mind! Thinking About Future Plans For This Blog I have been thinking about getting self-hosted for a while (something that I’m still so confused about actually); but the one thing that has been stopping me is my blogging consistency. Although I don’t think I’m where I need to be yet,  I do feel positive …

Starting my Bullet Journal +some tips

I did it! For the month of May, I started a bullet journal after purchasing the LEUCHTTURM 1917 Notebook Medium (A5), Softcover, Dotted from Amazon. I have been inspired to start for a while now, after seeing so many pretty but productive examples on social media; that as an avid stationary collector, I knew I had sought out a way to use my tools. Having used an ordinary diary for a few years, I decided to trade up into something that was much more flexible…which really is the whole point of bullet journals. In short, a bullet journal is a chronological system in which you pen in events, appointments and dates like a diary but with the addition of inventing pages exactly the way you want them like a notebook. These pages can range from to-do lists, to-buy lists, notes, habit trackers, fitness planning and so forth. Basically, anything that helps make sense of your lifestyle, productively or casually. There are no specific rules as the system is designed to always be evolving which is the nice and motivating touch of bullet journals, …

May Monthly Favourites – Lifestyle EDIT

I like to keep it as real as possible on this blog. And as it turns out for the month of May, I don’t have many beauty or fashion favourites to offer you. I can only think of two products off the top of my head that could make the cut, but that’s not really a sufficient amount for a Favourites post. I’m currently in the process of trying out a lot of new products but most are still too new to form a full opinion, let alone be considered a Favourite. Instead, I’m offering you my most recent Lifestyle Favourites which I feel is most appropriate in summing up the month! So…let’s begin shall we? LEUCHTTURM 1917 Notebook Medium (A5), Softcover, Dotted Crayola Washable Supertips (24 pack) Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner in Black 13 Reasons Why Healer (K-drama) Spotebi.com YouTube: madebyaya Favourite Songs at this moment: First things first, here’s a quick run-through of the songs that I’ve listened to the most in the past few weeks!

Q&A | Liebster Award and Nominations!

Always keeping it easy on Sundays! This again, is very long due but I’m here. I posted a Q&A yesterday too so if you haven’t already done so, read it here. I was nominated by the wonderful Emma of Everything EmmZeeBee (see her post here) a few months ago. She’s a new blogger of this year and just so happens to be a UK blogger like me so be sure to check her out! Thank you Emma for the nomination and wish you all the best with your blog which I think is going very smoothly! 🙂 Here are the questions from Emma that I have to answer: What is your dream holiday destination? There are so many places I want to visit but if I have to only pick one then I’d have to say Tokyo, Japan. I’m always so fascinated with people’s travel diaries and vlogs whenever they travel to Japan. The culture and colours really come across and there is no where else in the world like so! I have no plans yet to go to …

Get To Know Me Q&A | The Versatile Blogger Award

It’s unusual but I decided to post this Saturday! What have you got planned this weekend? This post is actually very, very long due. I was nominated by the wonderful Capili (author of Artistbybeauty). I have never been nominated for a blogger award before so this feels extra special. I was also nominated for another award by Capili, but today we are just focusing on the first – The Versatile Blogger Award. I am very excited and thankful to receive this award so thank you Capili. 🙂 I realise that I share a lot of things that I love, like and dislike on this blog but not a whole lot about myself. However, there will be an upcoming Q&A/tag because it seems that I like to play catch-up some wonderful blogger friends have nominated me and it’s time to answer the questions! Seven Things About Me: I have two older brothers – I’m the youngest. Overall, in my family tree, this appears to be a running pattern (having two boys and then a girl) so naturally, I have …
