Who I Follow!

Odee, a friend, and fellow blogger asked me about my blogroll. Honestly, my blogroll is a mess! That’s because I follow about 600 blogs. I have this personal rule of following everyone who follows me. It’s a silly rule, I know, and it clutters my reader all the time BUT I still do it because doing so gives me a wide range of blogs to read and appreciate. I have chosen a few personal favorites from my blogroll to share with you today. Somehow, I was able to limit my selection to my top ten favorite blogs to read and get inspiration from. Here they are! Louise Ramos – Caffeine Rush I love this girl because of her art. If you go visit her website, you’ll be amazed by her graphics and the amount of creativity that she pours out into her every content. It is amazing and inspiring. Read: Art Lately: April Teesh – Adventures of Cupcake Girl This girl actually works for the same company that I do! I haven’t officially introduced myself …

My 2017 Book List

I’ve come across this Japanese term, tsundoku, which means buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up unread on shelves or floors or nightstands and I thought, that’s totally me. 

My 2016 Book Goals!

Look it’s a late 2016 Book Goals List! This has been sitting in my draft for such a long time I almost forgot about it and honestly I just wanted to hit the Trash button! I’m still posting this and hopefully give me my much-needed inspiration. * * * * * I knew I had a couple of unread books but I didn’t think that I had this much lying around. I’m not impressed with myself and this doesn’t go well with my current goal of becoming a minimalist. The goal is to read all of the books listed below and write a review. If I like the book, it’s staying with me. If not, I’m selling it. I will write the reasons why I bought these books and hopefully motivate me to start reading it. Going Postal – Terry Pratchett Mike bought this for me…two years ago. I’m not much of a fan of Terry Pratchett and I’ve only read one book of his. I’m not too keen on reading this. The Bourne Supremacy – …

It’s that time of the month when I share with you my fave new fonts. Of course, all fonts were found from www.dafont.com! #1 Amethyst #2 Against #3 Shorelines #4 Chasing Embers #5 Hanging Letters #6 Badaboom #7 Happy Camper #8 Harry P The inspiration for today’s font list is a header.

List: Fonts I like

Today, I’ve been searching the internet for some cute fonts to use for my blog improvement. I want to share with you 6 fonts that have caught my eye! All of the fonts were found from www.dafont.com! First four are from the Serif family, and I am in love. 1- Basic Title 2- Cafe & Brewery 3- KG WHY YOU GOTTA BE SO MEAN 4 – Dolce Vita I’m generally drawn to the Serif family because of it’s simplicity. I usually opt for fonts that aren’t too thick or for those that have a light version.Thin lines = clean lines. The last two are cute calligraphy style fonts which I’m seeing a lot on the internet!  1- Bakery 2 – Pennellino I’ll be honest, I wanted to find a specific calligraphy style font but I’m glad with these two finds. I’ll have to work with what I have and hopefully be satisfied with the end result. 🙂 Do you have favorite fonts too? I’d love to check it out. Drop a comment below and let’s compare notes!

Top Five Reasons Why Having a Positive Vibe is the Solution to All Your Problems!

Aaaahh. Hello, fellow bloggers/readers. As you might have seen in a previous post, life has been major shitty. Excuse the word but it really has been!! It has been especially difficult to keep on blogging or finding inspiration to continue on with this work but I made a promise to myself that I will not quit on this. I admit, all my life, I have never been the most positive person in the world. I have always been a realist. (a person who tends to view or represent things as they really are) With this kind of thinking there is less chance of getting hurt. It’s so much easier. But hey, life is a crazy. Life will teach you things even if you don’t want to be taught. So people need to adapt to it and just go with the flow. There’s no point fighting the current anyway. With all that said, hehe, I know present to you Top Five Reasons Why Having a Positive Vibe is the Solution to All Your Problems!  Everything becomes simple Why do we want …

Reasons Why YOU Should Start Drinking Green Tea

Hello, lovely people! Today’s top five will hopefully encourage you to start drinking green tea! 🙂 I started drinking green tea way back in college as an alternative to coffee. I do not like coffee and green tea has managed to satiate any desire of trying coffee. My ultimate go to tea is Twinings Green Tea and Lemon.

Benefits of Papaya

Woohoo, after a missing a couple of weeks I’m back with my top five list! 😀 This week I’ll be introducing you to my new favorite fruit The Papaya. Before telling you the health benefits of eating this fruit, let me tell you how I came to know it. I have irregular periods and I searched the internet for natural ways to induce my monthly visitor. Google suggested mangoes, parsley, papaya, ginger teas and even celery. When I got to the grocery, I saw a cup of papayas and told myself that there was no harm in eating a cup of it to see if it will work. Lo and behold, after eating a whole cup of it, next day I had my period. Not only did it help my cycle but it also helped my bowel movements. WOW. I was seriously in shock because I couldn’t believe eating papayas would work! 😛 Anyway, nowadays, when I feel like its that time of the month papayas help me to get the train going and I’m so …

Reasons Why Cooking is Good For You

  When I was younger, I used to spend all my free time watching cooking shows. It wasn’t until last year that I have really started to try and cook! This year, however, I took it up a notch by bringing my own food to work instead of eating at restaurants you barely know where the food comes from. Doing this enabled me to learn how to cook and also identify what kind of food/ingredients come into my body. It has not only been a very fun (and challenging) activity for me, it has also been a very educational journey! Yey for food!! 😀 MY TOP FIVE REASONS WHY COOKING IS GOOD FOR YOU You know what’s going into your body:  When you cook, you get to choose what ingredients you use. This has to be the best reason out there! You can use less of the bad stuff and more of the good stuff. This means less preservatives or artificial flavors and more of the organic and fresh ingredients. Plus, you know where your food comes from! You know have …
