Okay, I know. I suck at blogging. It’s not even that I suck, it’s just that everything went bad in those first few weeks of May and I couldn’t even put myself to sit down to post something. But! that’s something you’ll know more of in my May wrap-up. (I promise this one won’t be that late.) Anyway, here is what I have written for April but never posted:
April seems to have last forever and I am really glad to see it over now. It was neither a good or bad month, but I have hope for the future and I’m sure that everything will fall into place soon. Many things happened during this month: I went to the movies, my dad ran a marathon, I hosted a 24h readathon, I went to the French premiere of Love, Simon, I saw Infinity War three times (and cried every time), I worked on my thesis and finally have faith for it and I studied harder than ever. I also read a lot, listened to a lot of music, got drunk with my best friend like the old time, watched some tv shows and way too many Tom’s interviews. It really lasted forever, and I am ready for May to take its place.

We all love this feeling when we are leaving the office or our last class on a Friday evening, excited to go home and to be free for two whole days. I am not an exception: I love weekends, and I’m always trying to make the most of it. So today I thought I’ll share some hapiness with you by discusting what are my favourite things to do on a weekend!

The other day, I asked on Instagram what kind of blog posts people wanted to read on here and most answered that they wanted to know how I managed to read 20 books in March while still going to university, to work and being active on my bookstagram account. I do not know if I have any secrets for this, if what I will say will help anyone, but I’ll try my best to describe a typical month in my life so you can have an idea of how I organise myself before giving you some personal tips.

Last Saturday, my friend Morgane and I hosted a 24 hours readathon. It wasn’t our first time – we both hosted some on our own over the past year. Doing it together was, however, new, and doing it next to each other as well. I slept at her place Friday and Saturday night, and we got to spend the entire day together, reading, reading… and reading.

I am proud to announce that I am part of the blog tour for the release of The Skincare Bible by Dr Anjali Mahto, published by Penguin on April 5th.
I would love to say that I know everything about skincare but the truth is I don’t. I used to watch a lot of beauty youtubers when I was younger but never got to fully understand what they were all doing with all those products on their skins. So when Penguin asked me if I wanted to receive this book, I jumped on the occasion and immediately said yes, hoping this bible will be able to answer to all my questions.

My friend Morgane and I are huge fans of readathons. We have both hosted at least two over the past year and for this one, we decided to do it together. The more the merrier, right?
So… Here is the Clara x Morgane readathon! (Yes, our names look funny together for French people, we know it.)

You probably forgot who I am by now. I mean, I never was consistent when it came to post on here but recently, I just completely disappeared. Do I have a good reason? Well, kind of. First of all, March has been a very stressful month for me: between university, busy weekends, events every week and all, it was hard for me to keep my head straight. I was anxious 24/7, never got to rest and ended up completely losing my mind. Second of all, I finally went to the hospital to talk about what’s wrong and even though I already knew that my cyclothymia was getting out of hand once again, we discovered that I was suffering from an eating disorder and OCDs. Even though it felt good to know, it was hard at first to get used to the idea, and also to get used to the fact that I will have to spend at least a month at the hospital soon to get better. So… This is kinda why I disappeared.
Even though I wasn’t really in the mood to write again on here, I couldn’t miss a wrap-up blog post, mostly because I love keeping a track of everything that happened each month and because it makes me feel good to re-read them from time to time, to see all the good things that happened to me and that I can do it. I somehow want to work on my blog again, so we’ll see how it’ll go in April, but during March I did nothing: I didn’t track what I watched, didn’t answer to comments, didn’t read as many blog posts as I used to do, and for this I am sorry. Anyway, let’s go back to business.
