Okay, I haven’t yet filmed the video and I know! I know, I’m leaving it to the last minute but I’m hoping that the swelling in my […]Continue Reading
Blog Updates, Etsy, Shop, Face Masks & More!
Hai Beautiful! It’s about time for another update! I thought it was about time I did this update considering so much has happened in the past month and a half, I don’t even know where to start! Since around mid-June, I started on a project to open an online shop to sell journaling and scrapbooking ephemera/ supplies. This stemmed from a strange desire to tear apart old novels, and let me tell you that once you rip up one book, […]Continue Reading
69k On My WIP Bby! (SW#58 ;)
Hai Beautiful! I’m Nearly At 70k! Usually, I would give you all a huge update at the end of the month (there will still be one, a very excited one) but I want to talk about my WIP today.

I’m nearly at 70k!” and my second thought was “hehe, 69… hehehehhe.” Can you […]Continue Reading

A Hectic October Wrap-Up & #Realise Progress Update!
Heyo Bookaholics! *Endless Screaming* This was supposed to be posted on Thursday (hence the modified header) but due to internet outages at home and using all my data on my last assignment meant I couldn’t publish my post when I wanted.

My Self-Hosting Journey Continued… Self-Hosting With VentraIP.
