Last week is the most productive and the most disappointed I’ve been in quite some time and, frankly, I’ve loved it.
I’m completely back to my ” normal” life. I still am nothing but a bundle of yaws by 10 am ( which is definitely not good as I work late evenings) and up too early but I took this holiday not only as an occasion to relax but also to kick start some new habits. A good skincare routine, putting at least eye make up before going out and generally loving myself a tad bit more. For now it’s still not completely natural to me, but I’ m loving it and I can see the positive impact that It’s having on my day to day life. I like myself more, I feel more capable and I feel like I have that extra push of a task already accomplished in the day to do so much more with my time.
This week for the first time in waaaay too long I actually put some thoughts into the photos I was taking and I took some ( three, don’t get too excited) especially for Instagram and I’m – honestly- loving them! I’m also thinking to slightly tone down the brightness and the orange in my photos, making my feed slightly less saturated and bright but still cohesive and pretty!
I also took at heart my own words and I started writing reviews of every book I was reading right away, tackling some ideas I had buzzing in my head and finally writing a review that was particularly dear to my heart and that I really wanted to do well!
All in all TCH will see a shift to have more books, more mini reviews and more bookish tone all around! I’m also seriously toying with the idea of a bookstagram to incorporate with my blog posts and I just need to find a book that passionate me enough for me to need to vent boy voice to put my face in front of a camera and get it all out!
I honestly feel so grateful for this week, End of August — Mid November Is my absolutely free period of the year ( Yes, I am an Autumn child) And I always find that my inspiration peaks during this months so I fully intend to use them at its most.
What I’m grateful for / obsessed with / Looking forward to with this week?
x. Painkillers, because without them my weekend would’ve only featured my migraine.
x. Silvia cause I can sit with her without speaking and still have a good time.
x. Elena, because without my bookish best friend I would’ve never gotten over this book heartbreak I experienced in my latest DNF.
x. Aliexpress stickers, because they cost close to nothing so I don’t have fear of using them all.
x. my mother, for making me obsessed with earrings again.
x. Something exciting that should happen this week coming.
