Come & Take Part In Our Spring Readathon!

This spring a few bookstagrammers and I are hosting a readathon. The aim is to complete as many of the prompts as possible. They’ll help to broaden your reading ‘sphere’ and hopefully let you discover new favourites. There will be no winner, as this readathon is purely for fun. All participants will get shoutouts on Instagram, so make sure you’re following the hosts on there! We would all appreciate if you shared your progress with the #springreadathon2020 or in the group chat. That way we can talk about the books you’re reading!

We are trying to encourage people to read more often. Hopefully it will motivate you to pick up a book when you don’t usually. There are a set of rules, but they are flexible. Don’t feel that you have to read a book for all of the prompts, you can double up!

If you don’t have Instagram, keep me up to speed via the contact page.

However, if you do have access to Instagram, drop your username in the comments below! I’ll add you to the group chat straight away.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to comment or DM on Instagram.

Happy reading!

February Bullet-Journal Set Up ft. Me Apologising About It Being So Late

Sorry for this set-up being a bit late! I did have all the photos ready before February but my pea-brain forgot about it entirely 😅 At least it’s here now! I didn’t want the theme to have anything to do with Valentines. However I did end up doing roses. It was purely by accident!

This post is going to be a little different to my usual set-ups. Instead of ranting about every single page I’m going to leave the photos uncaptioned. 

Enjoy:

Do any of you bullet journal? If so, what was your theme for February?

These Aren’t Your Regular Self-Care Tips

Don’t feel guilty for taking a break. Some of you say sorry and write a whole post of apology… You really don’t need to! Most breaks from social media benefit a person’s mental health and that’s brilliant. I think we all should be spending less time on technology – especially now brighter season’s are coming (for the northern hemisphere at least). Life is for living, not sitting in your room trying to gain followers. Instead of scheduling breaks, just take them when you need to. In Winter I tend to blog a lot because there’s nothing to do outside! However, when spring comes, I go on walks and enjoy the world around me. You should try it too. 

A lot of social media is now filled up with ‘self-care’ and ‘how to be happy’. Though those accounts can bring smiles to people’s faces, nothing feels better than experiencing the warmth of sun on your face. No bubble bath can beat the satisfaction of ticking a task off the to-do list. 

Self-love comes in many different forms. Getting things done is more kind to yourself than watching Netflix.

Please do what is right for you. Don’t feel that you have to journal because you have a lot of thoughts on your mind. Just because working out benefits your friend, doesn’t mean it’s going to benefit you. Different things work for different people. These differences make us all unique and, as they say, variety is the spice of life.

I’m not going to apologise that this post is cheesy. I’m not going to let any of you apologise for taking care of yourself.
