MINI REVIEWS: finally reading TATBILB, a DNF (??) + more // survey + upcoming Q&A question submissions

This may be the start of a memorable bookish year.

Of all the things that are going on in my life right now, I can confidently say that books are having a positive impact. Since I decided to settle in and stick with blogging about lifestyle, insight, and books, I’ve made it one of my main blog goals to post more bookish related content this year. What better way to start off my book blogging journey here than with some mini reviews?

Today, I’ll be sharing some honest thoughts about some recent books I have read. Also! If you have a goodreads account, you are definitely more than welcome to drop a link below and let’s share our love for YA literature together 🙂

Let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

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

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?

Farewell August // new school year + reading slump + lots of stress // course planning galore + a new child (??)

I still cannot fathom, or even wrap my potato shaped head around the fact that IT’S SEPTEMBER.

I mean seriously – it is actually September, kids, like how did this even happen. Summer is from the days of the past okay I just made this really sad and now I have to face the stressing reality of being a student.

But!! Enough of that talk – there were still some pretty nice anecdotes of my summer break, and I can’t wait to share them with you! So much happened last month – I still have not clue as to how I’m going to put this all into one post without making this more than 5K words long 😂

Anyways, let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

The Social Media Blog Tag // Life Updates

If there’s anything I love more than writing up blog posts and being in the blogosphere overall, it would have to be bragging about my favourite bloggers of all time. To me, support between fellow bloggers is so important, and I’d love to contribute too, even if it was just a little wee bit 🙂

I was tagged to do The Social Media Blog Tag awhile ago by the ever talented Ally @ Girl Illustrated as well as my big sis and bestie Ryry @ OMG Ryry. I haven’t done a tag for a bit, so I’m quite excited to see how this goes! This is a shorter post than usual, but I guess it’s okay sometimes, right? instantly doubts self*

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

*oh, the struggles a blogger shalt face

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 🙂

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 🙂

Plan With Me: May 2018 Bujo Set-up // exploring constellations

Surprisingly, the phrase “April showers bring May flowers” is happening. For real.

The weather is gorgeous, the sakura is in full bloom… what can anyone ask for after a dreadful winter? Of course, the arrival of the new month also leads me back to my bullet journal – today, I’ll be showing you my May bullet journal set-up!! I love doing these types of posts – somehow out of nowhere it gives me more inspiration on what I should do for the following month.
