{BLOGVERSARY} 1yr of blogging? + vlog

    So apparently I’ve been blogging for one year now.   …..   *screams* *throws confetti* *flails* ADFJKL; I CAN’T BELIEVE I SURVIVED ONE YEAR AAAHHHHHHH.   Honestly, I don’t remember the exact day I started (the reason obviously being that I didn’t have a bullet journal back then 😉 ).

{WRITERS AND AUTUMN} 7 reasons why we’re the perfect match

  HAPPY AUTUMN *throws leaves in the air* I’m sorry, my summer-loving friends, but the season of falling leaves, nippy winds, and delicious scents has finally arrived!   It has come to my attention during my near-year of blogging that a lot of writers say autumn is their favorite season, myself including. So today, in honor of the first day of fall, I’m revealing the seven reasons why writers and autumn are often the perfect match. (if you’re a writer…
