March was…a lot. A lot of deadlines. A lot of plans. A lot of anxiety and stress. And apparently, a lot of new favourites too. So at least something good came out of all the excess, right?Keep reading!
In Defense of Audiobooks (And A Story of Anxiety…)
Ahhh, the audiobook argument. It comes up time and time again. “You’re not really reading if you’re listening” or “audiobooks aren’t real books!”
Well ladies and gentlemen (and all those between), here’s my defense.Keep reading!

How I Use My Bullet Journal
So when I began bullet journaling way back in 2017, I wrote a post all about it. Honestly, looking back on that post makes me laugh slightly – my bullet journal has had a serious glow-up since then. My excitement to share meant I wanted to chat all about it, and so I did. Now, 2 years on, I’m still very much in love with bullet journaling, and have been creating Plan With Me videos on my booktube channel for every month ever since. But in those videos you don’t get to see how I actually use my bullet journal. You see me painting, drawing, cutting and sticking away, but never see if my designs are actually practical as well as pretty. I also know a lot of fellow bloggers are trying out bullet journaling for the first time this year and so hey – why not show you how I use my bullet journal?
P.S. This will be a loooong post, but dominantly photos and broken down in small sections. Hopefully it’s not overwhelming!Keep Reading!

Well we’ve not seen a book tag around these parts for awhile have we? But I’m going to be honest with you, I wanted some more festivity on this lil blog of mine and so it was perfect timing for Richard to tag me in his Jingle Bell Book Tag!
