Dear reader,

Now that I am officially back on my blog I can talk again about mental health and everything that is related to it. Today I wanted to talk about something that has been asked to me a lot on Instagram: how to cope with a bad day.

All the tips I will be giving in this blog post can’t work for everyone and my list won’t be exhaustive. Those are just some tips I usually give to people when they had a bad day, but you can’t believe it’ll work every time.

Anyway, let’s get through some of my tips for coping with a bad day.

How I edit my pictures | 2018

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, I am mostly a bookstagrammer. I am saying “mostly” because for a while this blog has only been an extension of my Instagram account but I am now taking it way more seriously, and am loving it.

I have been on Instagram for almost two years now and am blessed enough to be followed by more than 20k amazing people. Of course, I receive a lot of questions every day and some people are very curious to know how I edit my pictures. I already wrote a blog post about it on the past but my edit style changed a lot lately and I like to believe that I evolved as well! This is why I am presenting you today how I edit my pictures – indoors and outdoors ones!

Dear reader,

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.

Bookstagram, part II: Editing and creating a theme

Copie de Copie de Copie de Copie de Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS

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 can do whatever you want with your account.  Having a theme isn’t something you 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.

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.
