I have been full steam ahead finishing manuscripts left and right! Short stories, novelettes, full-length novels, even tried my hand at a picture book! But of course, you can not expect to hone your craft if you don’t take the time to study others. So I found time to read another YA Fantasy book! TL;DR:…

How To Apply Perfume

I know what you’re thinking: what do you mean “How to apply perfume”? Like you’re doing it wrong or something! But rest assured, there is definitely a way to apply perfume so that you can get the most out of what it offers! If it makes you feel better, I knew nothing about perfume other…

Simple Meal Ideas

Sometimes our schedules become too busy, or our wallets too empty, and we struggle to find recipes that suit our lifestyles. Often enough I am confronted and confided in by friends who have never really tried to cook for themselves before or have very limited knowledge of how to do so. It’s not an innate…

Twitter Pitch Events

So you’ve spent months, maybe even years, perfecting that manuscript of yours and after countless revisions, beta reader input, editing upon editing, you feel like you’re finally ready to do something with it. But, now you’re asking yourself- what do I do now? It can be extremely daunting to figure out where to start, especially…

I only managed one book this month because I was so focused on getting my own manuscripts finished in time for a PitchWars event in September (my goal was to have 3-4 finished and fully edited manuscripts by then, and so far I’m on track with two!). But obviously that left little time to focus…

Alex & Emma- A Short Story

So I decided to write another short story- in between two novels and a novella. It was hard to stay focused on one thing when my folder dedicated to ideas for stories sat there bulging at the seams, so I just started writing to see where it would land me. I’ve been procrastinating just a…

Earfleek

Earfleek is a cheap, monthly subscription service that sends you one pair of earrings! Out of all the subscription services out there this is honestly the cheapest and funnest one I have experienced and I have no intention of stopping. For me, buying jewelry isn’t easy- I’m allergic to nickel. And unfortunately the cheap jewelry…

Best Indie Simulation Games

I remember when I was a kid I could lose myself for hours playing Zoo Tycoon, Planet Tycoon, Sim City, Sim Farm, Theme Hospital (damn, the Sims were quite an integral part of growing up for me) Command&Conquer, Starcraft, Age of Empires- you name it. I was obsessed with building things (including armies to then…

Another month, another attempt at bringing myself out of my comfort zone! I spent this month exclusively on books I won from Goodreads. If you weren’t already aware, Goodreads hosts giveaways where you can win physical or digital copies of previously published or debut novels! It costs nothing to enter, but if you win it’s…

Ipsy

An all time favourite subscription of mine, if you love cosmetics but find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer amount of products available on the market and unsure where to start, a cheap subscription like Ipsy is the perfect place. A monthly subscription service with three tiers, Ipsy provides 5 deluxe size samples in their base…
