January wrap-up, favourites and other

Copie de December

Dear reader,

How come January is already over?

So many things happened and I grew a lot. As I said in another blog post, 2017 has been a very challenging year for me and I have been feeling terrible most of the time. As we are now in February, I can say that starting a new year has done a lot for me: I am trying to feel better and it is working.

I did a lot, started some of my goals, which I will talk about in another blog post soon, and for now it seems to work. I also started reading a lot again and I’m very happy to see that reading at least 10 books per month became “normal” to me – it’s now my own pace and I love it.

So here is what I read in January and what has been important to me!

December wrap-up, favourites and other

December

Dear readers,

I know, I am late. Life has been crazy and I didn’t really have the time to sit down and write. Today, as I have less things to do, I can finally do it and think about this last month of 2017 which has been quick, full of adventures and new experiences. So… Let’s do this.

Dear readers,

Before starting, I wanted to thank you all for your words on the first part of this guide. It means a lot to me to see that my advice can help some of you or made you want to join this beautiful community.

For this second part, I will focus on editing and planning your theme. I will start with some general advice, then will move on to how I edit my pictures then will talk about mantaining a feed.

Quick reminder that you canΒ do whatever you want with your account.Β  Having a theme isn’t something youΒ have to do – the only thing you should do is be proud of your work and loving what you are posting. Those are only tips and explanation on how I work. I am no professional and I do not know everything.

November wrap-up, favourites and other

Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS

Dear readers,

November came and left so quickly. I still cannot believe that we are now at the last month of 2017 and it both amazes and scares me. The year went by way too fast and even though I know I did a million of things I still can’t quite believe that 2017 is coming to an end.

This month has been weird for me; it was both good and not good. Things happened, my mental health and health have been not so kind on me and I had to say goodbye to many people to be able to breathe again. I am proud, however, to see that I actually fought everyday to get better and dared cut off toxic people of my life.

Read with me for 24 hours!

Dear readers,

As I was watching booktube videos last night, I realised how much I wanted to start my own 24 hours readathon. It is something that I have already done once and absolutely loved it, and I want to give it a try once again. Since I am staying at home this weekend, I thought it would the perfect occasion to do one.

So let me introduce you to the Readathon of Notre-Dame!

Bookstagram, part I: Creating your account

Copie de Copie de Copie de Copie de Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS (1)

Dear readers,

You may not know but I have been on Instagram for a year now and my account has been growing really fast without me realising what was happening or how I got so lucky. Over the months, many people asked for my advice and even though I gave some, I felt silly because I had so much to say and never really had the occasion to develop my thoughts.

This is why I am bringing you today the Bookstagram Guide which will be devided in three parts: the first part will explain you how to start, the second one will focus on the editing part and the third one on how to progress through the months. I know those kind of posts have been done a lot so I’ll try to say new things and talk about my story as well. In no way I am assuming that I know everything about bookstagram – this is only to help, as those blog posts have been helpful to me when I began to be sure I wasn’t doing anything wrong.

October wrap-up, favourites and other

Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS

β€œOctober extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.”

― J.K. Rowling,Β Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Dear readers,

October came and went by quickly and slowly at the same time. As it is my favourite month of the year, I was waiting for many things during it. It was my birthday, my best friend’s birthday, Halloween and I had a concert. I felt as if I was constantly waiting for something but at the same time everything happened too fast. However, for once, I made out the best of every day. My birthday was the best one I had so far, even though it had been disappointing for a part, and I had a lot of fun for Halloween.

October was still a hard month for me. My mental health has been at its worse and I kept feeling bad. I didn’t know what to do and let the sadness consumed me without realising it. I also went to the doctor and the whole thing made me feel both good and bad. I am not gonna lie – it was hard. But I made it and I can say that today I am working on getting better.
