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, …

Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 2 – Free ‘Roming’

This post is a continuation from: Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 1 – Angels Watching Over The City Please feel free to catch up with the previous days in this Travel/Photo Diary too: 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 Otherwise, let’s continue Day 3 shall we? Back To The Other Side Of The Bridge Since we couldn’t go to explore Vatican City with more intricacy, we decided to head back to the other side of the bridge to explore the other areas as marked on our city map. I had remembered Piazza Navona being of mention on Trip Advisor so that’s where we decided to head to next. After crossing the bridge, we just kept walking straight on – the direction couldn’t have been more straightforward! 🔺 Piazza Navona Of course, these fountains and statues have nothing on Fontana di Trevi but it’s still worth …

The Sunday Catch-Up #2 | The Power of Eternal Sunshine

Happy Easter everyone! The sun is out. Or rather the sun has been out and in case you didn’t know, UK people really treasure the sun when it’s out! Where I live in particular can have a tendency to rain or just be doom of gloom so people take advantage of it to enjoy the sunshine and outdoors because really…how often is the weather this nice? (Not often at all!) The sun doesn’t go down now until about 8pm which has given me a huge energy boost hence the title of this post. Anyone else? This surge of power is giving me countless of ideas and inspiration for projects this coming season that I thought it’d be nice to check in with you all. Think of this as a mini what’s (been) going on? type of post that I’m happy to share with you all today! 🙂 Long, sunny days remind me of summer…which makes me feel young Okay, I’m not actually old. I mean, I am still young in my mind and my heart 😉 but …

The Sunday Catch-Up +I’m back!

So I can’t remember the last time I talked about what I was up to because I haven’t blogged for about two weeks. What have you been up to? The weather is rather gloomy today that I’m slightly contemplating whether to switch the light on but it’s only 12.30pm. I guess I’ll just manage fine and make-do with what there is of the natural light… A Few Days Away From Everything I was meant to post last week but it didn’t happen although I have some drafts handy. (I need to sort those out actually. Crikey.)  I think I may have told a few blogger friends but not really verbally announced that I was on holiday this week to Rome for a few days. It sounds crazy but it was nice to have a few days where you really forgot who you were and what responsibilities you had back at home, but of course, one always has to come back and face reality. (I would always recommend traveling once or twice a year though.) Like …
