Farewell January // overall struggling, textiles competition + finally living up to my niche

How. Is. It. One. Month. ALREADY.

I feel like it’s yesterday that I went screaming (like always) about how I’m so not ready for 2019? Honestly, I’m still not sure why this happened, and I don’t think I ever will be able to. January was… a difficult month – definitely a rocky start to the year.

There’s several things I want to cover in this post, so I hope that this won’t be your typical long monthly wrap up posts you see here.

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

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 🙂

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!

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 ❤
