🦕 Hai Beautiful 🌼 Let’s talk goal setting! Every year I make a “Blogging Goals” post, and every year I forget about that post and just do whatever the hell my heart desires, never looking back at what I set out to achieve. BUT… This year is different! This year’s post isn’t about goals, it’s about what plans I have in place to make Japer and Spice what I had set out for it to be. You may be asking: Bree, […]Continue Reading
What Happened During NaNoWriMo 2020?
Hai Beautiful! I’m back to my usual blogging schedule! I last spoke about my writing in this post titled: Announcing my 2020 NaNoWriMo Project. It was actually the last writing post before I disappeared from blogging in hopes to make more time for writing. In theory that was a great idea and in reality, it helped me to reduce stress, but did I write more? In my NaNo Announcement post, I spoke about starting my second WIP (which I am still […]Continue Reading
Announcing My 2020 NaNoWriMo Project!
Hai Writers! Hopefully, this will be my year! Despite all the craziness of 2020, we all have things we’ve been looking forward to this year that will never fail us. One such reliable event is the National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. An event that runs online for the entire month of November with participants from all corners of the globe! For the fourth year in a row I will be attempting the challenge with _ other writers to write […]Continue Reading
What I’m Reading For The BECAUSE WE CAN Readathon (BWCR TBR)!!
Hai Beautiful Humans! I’m Gonna Give It My All! This was supposed to be posted last Saturday but I postponed it to yesterday, then I had a major breakdown and now it’s going live today! Although, I guess posting on the off/non-scheduled days has become expected from me by now (see bottom of this post for my actual blog schedule). This week I am participating in the Because We Can Readathon (again!). This time it is running from the 19th till the […]Continue Reading
Writing & Insecurities (SW#66)
Hai Beautiful! Writing is scary! I wanted to write this post ever since I changed my mindset regarding my writing. Recently I stopped telling myself that “ignoring your WIP is not the same as giving up,” and “you can’t be scard of a writing project!” and started trying to understand the reason why I was indeed ‘giving up’. Once I’d identified what the hell I was so damn scared of, I was able to start working on ways to make the writing […]Continue Reading
Things That Bring Me Calm ☺️
Hai Beautiful! It’s Important To Practice Self-Care! I’ve been a little lost in my head this week and need to ground myself, so I’m writing this post as a way of self-care, both to myself and to remind you all how important self-care is. Aesthetic/ Study “Pinterest” Photos I spend so much of my time on Pinterest. Whether I’m just chilling on my phone or (not) doing work, you can bet I’m on Pinterest. I love to create all kinds […]Continue Reading

Happy New Year & 2020 Goal Setting (wow all my posts are falling on the big holidays hehe)
Happy New Year Bookaholics! A New Start! A strange analogy about the new year courtesy of my sleep-deprived brain: I don’t know about you but time in years feels like a roll of toilet paper. A new roll doesn’t really mean a new year, rather a new life event which can take place whenever. A new year just feels like I’ve ripped the toilet paper wrong, like those not clean straight rips that have a dangly bit to annoy the […]Continue Reading
Juggling University and Blogging: How Not to Have a Guilt-Induced Breakdown (SW #35)
Heyo Bookaholics! Real talk now. Side-note (get it, the note is on the other side of the screen (okay, I’m sorry)): Everything I speak about here is from my personal point of view/ experience and all remedies for this are what I personally find that works for me during these times. I also do not get paid to release content as most bloggers, I do so purely for creativity and expression. More often than not, when I do not post […]Continue Reading
Finding Your Purpose In Any Situation! (SW#32)
Heyo Bookaholics! Something’s been bugging me! I haven’t written a post for a while. Well nothing substantial, nothing that would make me say; “This blog has a purpose.” I guess I’m still trying to find my purpose for Jasper + Spice. Trying to understand why people read blogs, why I read blogs. what can I deliver that people want to read? Well, that’s the big question I guess. What can I contribute to the community? This whole post can be […]Continue Reading
