Bullet Journal Staples – What I Use To Make Each Page My Own

My last post about starting my bullet journal got a lot of love and just overall, exceeded my expectations in its response, so thank you so much for all the love! ❤ As promised, I said that I’d write a follow-up post regarding what stationary I use to make each and every page my own. If you’re a student, just graduated or simply a stationary hoarder, then you might find that you don’t need to buy much else to start your bullet journal! Or at least, that’s what I found. Otherwise, here’s an idea of what I use and what you could add to your collection!

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 …

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?

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 …

Rome Diary Day 4 – Taking It Easy

We’ve finally got here! The last day of my Rome Diary! To catch up, see my previous posts in this series: Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi  Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What the Romans Mades + Detail Envy Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 2 – Where The Romans Once Were Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 1 – Angels Watching Over The City Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 2 – Free ‘Roming’ Otherwise, let’s start! (and subsequently finish this chapter in my life because I know it’s overdue.) Enjoy! Taking It Easy As it was the last day of our trip, or technically speaking – the last half-day – we had very limited time left to explore so there was only one way to spend it: see title. We actually woke up a bit later that morning – I guess because we had spent the previous whole two days being total tourists so much so that there was less of a rush to do so on the …
