Farewell October // more school stress + textiles fashion design sketching + 300 followers (??)

So. Apparently it’s the second last month of 2018 and it is slightly concerning.

It’s kind of scary when you think that a day of school lasts forever but an year is over like a snap like Thanos*?? Is anyone else also having an existential crisis.

Anyways, I try my best to not procrastinate on things and actually get work done, so today I’m going to summarize all that happened in October! I was not, and still isn’t looking forward to this month (aka interim reports and potential term finals), so this shall be interesting.

Let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

*to all y’all Marvel fans because I care. And I was forced to watch Infinity Wars

The Sunshine Blogger Award // dying in textiles, bookish questions (!!), strange facts about me + more

Hello lovelies, happy Thursday 🙂 How are you all doing? Things are pretty complicated for me right now with school and such. Especially textiles. We just finished our designer garment bags, and now we’re moving on to our pants and designing our shirts. There’s so much sketching I need to do, and I have to find a suitable colour palette for my capsule wardrobe. Even though it’s hectic, I still love textiles, but ughhhh

So!! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Ryry @ OMG Ryry, Olivia @ Purely Olivia and Dezzy @ The Thoughtful Voice! There are so many questions – even some in which I begin to have an existential crisis. I’m so excited to do this and answer the questions, and hopefully it’ll give y’all a better look at the true nonexistent life of Kimberly XD

REVIEW: Girl Made of Stars // stunning writing, beautiful message + feminism (I actually almost cried)

Have you ever finished a book and just sat there for 5 minutes, not knowing what just happened?

That’s exactly what happened to me with Girl Made of Stars. There were SO many emotions involved with this book, yet it was nothing short of amazing. During the month of September, I held a survey to see which book you had wanted to see reviewed the most. This one won by a whopping 66.7%, so of course, this one’s to y’all who voted 🙂

Farewell September // somehow surviving school (barely), lots of stress, and parenting struggles + survey results

I’m still really confused as to how I survived the first month back to school.

This past month has been crazy, and I don’t even know where to begin. With school starting once again, my schedule has been gone all over the place, and slowly I realized that I don’t have much time to blog anymore. Nonetheless, there were still some pretty nice anecdotes in September, and I can’t wait to review the past month with you guys!

The Positives and Negatives of Blogging // life as a student blogger

If there is anything I love more than tea and potatoes, it’d gotta be analyzing stats and charts.

I know, such a nerd, but that just so happens to be me sometimes XD As you guys probably know, I’ve been blogging since February 2017, so it’s been an year and a half *faints* for me in the blogosphere.

Ever since I published my first post ’till now, I’ve never stopped learning about blogging, WordPress, and the community. Over that period of time, I think it’s safe to say that I have a good idea of the pros and cons of blogging as a student blogger, in which I will talk about in today’s post! Let’s dive right in, shall we?

Hello friends! I don’t know about you, but this past two months, I watched a ton of movies. Whether it’s from Netflix or going to the actual theatre, I was introduced to so many new film genres.

PLAN WITH ME: September Bujo Set-up // starting over again + wandering amongst wildflowers

Hello beautiful people 🙂

School has started, and alas, it cues more complicated schedules, busier weeks, and overwhelming days. During the summer, I decided to take a break on my bullet journal, because I didn’t really need to use it. Though, when we say hello to September, it will also mean hello to my bujo and planning once again 😂

Today, I’ll be sharing my September bullet journal set-up, and the new spreads I decided to do for the rest of this year. I’m pretty satisfied with the overall result – and I hope that you will love them as much as I do ❤
