Goodbye for now – NaNoWriMo

Can you believe that October is almost over? Can you believe that NaNoWriMo is almost here? I am in a little bit of shock over here. After watching all the horror movies and reading all the spooky tales, I feel like I enjoyed this month to it’s fullest. However, I am still a little sad to see it go. I just love October! But it is not all snots and tears. With the ending of October, this can only mean that November is almost here.  Oh yes, that is how the almighty calendar works! And for me, November…

5 Spine Chilling Book Recommendations

Fall is in full swing. The leaves are finally turning the most beautiful shades of red, orange, brown. The air is crisp. I just love fall and all its spooky magic. It’s spooky and spine-chilling magic. Another perk of Fall is of course reading! When fall rolls around my reading endeavors usually amp up a bit. You know fuzzy blankets, tea, and all that reading coziness. It is not only my reading habits that change but also the material. October is the perfect month to start a spiritual or spooky read. Nothing too scary of course, a…

Fall Feelings

We made it, here we are. Fall has arrived, crept right into our lap and cuddled up like an old cat trying to settle in and get comfy. Or something like that. I never used to be a big fan of Fall. It’s not that I didn’t like Fall, I just didn’t care either way. I guess I never really paid attention to the subtleties of routines. I spent a lot of time just doing and going and moving. The past few years I have been more aware and awake. Awake to my surroundings…

May Goals

Guys is it just me or did April freaking fly? Seriously where did this month go? It has been a kind of blah April for moi I must admit, my mood, the weather. It has just been blah. Not bad, just blah. I am still patiently waiting for spring days to inspire my soul, it has been a slow process up here in this icy windy land I call home. I guess all those dresses I keep buying will have to keep waiting for their time to shine. Anyway, I am excited and a little underprepared to head into May…

March Goals

Hello, everyone! I am excited to be writing this post! The last monthly goals post I wrote was in March of 2016. Woah time flies! I wanted to get back into the swing of writing these little monthly goals posts because while I was looking at last years posts I felt rather nostalgic to see the plans and things I was up to back then. These kinds of posts are not only a great way to hold yourself accountable but also fun to look back upon. So seeing how March 1st is the traditional beginning of the new year I…

3 Museums you Should Visit in Amsterdam

I am a museum kind of gal. I love the romance and admiration that washes over me when standing in the presence of an ancient art piece. There is something so awe-inspiring about the enthusiasm and dedication in which artists, royalty, and religion had in documenting the myths, legends and everyday experiences of society throughout the ages. What impresses me more than the art or artifacts themselves is the shared respect that each culture has in preserving history. It is a beautiful act that makes us human. There are so many lessons to learn, hidden gems to discover, and…
