MID YEAR BOOK FREAK OUT TAG // after mid-year but it’s okay + lots of book recs // reflecting reading stats

Happy Saturday, everyone! To me, summer is the ultimate time to catch up on reading – no homework, no tests, no nothing… you have all the time in the world! And for any bookworm, what’s any better than analyzing and reviewing the books you read? The amazing Olivia @ Purely Olivia tagged me to do the Mid Year Freak Out Tag, and and I EVER excited for this! I know it’s technically not “mid-year” anymore, but… I’ll just pretend it is.

Farewell June // halfway of 2018 + new experiences // summer + new love (??)

So, apparently we’re halfway through 2018.

Currently I’m sitting right here, in front of the computer, and my jaw is hanging and it just won’t shut. Are any of you having an existential crisis? *raises up hand immediately* I mean like HOW is this all happening? Each day really doesn’t feel like it’s 24 hours…

So many things happened the past month, and I’m excited to see what summer has in store. Before I start rambling off, let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

Liebster Award #3 + Awesome Blogger Award // answering intriguing questions + happy summer!!

Hello loves, and happy summer, everyone! I am officially on summer break *screams*, so I am really excited to be able to post more consistently and spend more time here in the blogosphere 🙂

I was nominated for the Liebster Award and Awesome Blogger Award by Anna @ Anna Pastelle awhile ago. She’s a great blogger, and her blog aesthetic never fails to impress 🙂 Be sure to head over and show some love!

Before I start, I’m so sorry about my unexpected disappearance from the blogosphere for the past week or so. I have been really busy trying to sort and figure out things. I really don’t like being irresponsible, so I apologize 😅 Now that summer is here, I hope that I’ll be able to go back to my blogging schedule and be more present in the blogosphere 🙂

REVIEW: Three Dark Crowns // murderous sibling rivalry + a new ship (??) // announcement

Hello loves! *waves into the void known as the blogosphere* How are you all? June has been a pretty good reading month for me – with school starting to dwindle out and summer approaching, I have more time to actually be a bookworm for once 😂

I don’t know why, but book reviews are honestly one of my favourite types of posts to do. I’m always in dire need to add more books to my never ending TBR list, and connecting with fellow book lovers is always an amazing thing. Today, I’ll be talking about my thoughts on Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. I have a feeling that this post is going to be really interesting…

I know that I missed my Saturday post – I’ll be talking about that near the end of the post.

The Truth About Mental Health // #BreakTheStigma

Most of you probably already know, that advocating for mental health is something that is extremely close to my heart. I feel like this is often overlooked, stigmatized, used as adjectives, as well as romanticized. One of my main goals – aka why I started this blog in the first place – is to help break the stigma, raise awareness for mental health, and hopefully help anyone struggling with anxiety or depression.

My goal with this post isn’t to judge anyone – instead, I hope that it can give some insight on what it really is, and maybe, even hopefully helping someone on their journey to wellness, whatever it may be for them.

Note: I am not a mental health professional – I’m just sharing my beliefs and thoughts 

Before I begin this, I will be mentioning about some of the events that has been circling around the media. Reader discretion may be advised.

Several Writing Snippets // recent poems + short stories

Hello loves!

As you probably already know, I adore literature, or basically anything that has to do with words. Although, you may not know, but I also enjoy writing!

So, I’m doing something I’ve never really done before here: may I present some of my writing snippets! I hope that you’ll enjoy them as much as I did writing them 🙂

Kaleidoscope // Spring 2018 Photography Collection

Hello friends!

Last long weekend I went up the mountains, and I saw something that I’ve never seen before in my 1000 short years of life: my city. I’ve lived there for so long that I didn’t really have time to stop and appreciate the thing we’re best known for – a city beside the ocean and mountains. Despite all the negativity we sadly have in our world today, there’s still some beauty that persists for us to see.

Today, I’m sharing some of the photos I took on the short little visit up the mountains! I know there’s some snow, but that’s spring for us 40 minutes away from where we live 😉 It really gave me wider perspective on the beauty of nature, and I hope that it’ll do the same for you 🙂

Let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

side note: I made an error about my new blogging schedule on my last post; it’s actually Wednesday and Saturday 🙂
