My latest minimalist design blog crushes

I love blogs and websites that have clean and simple themes. LOVE them and I often visit some of my favorites not just to check out their latest posts but also admire their pretty pretty blogs. I also try to emulate them by playing around with my blog design hundreds of times a month. Seriously, I am never satisfied with how my blog looks.

Anyway, I posted a list of my ‘favorite minimalist blog design’ several few years ago and I think it’s time for another one! So, here you go! Yayyy.

Mid-Year Report: Checking in!

I just realized it’s already July and we’re halfway through the year. Thought I should do a mid-year report of some sort just to lay out how my year has been. Also, I wanted to blog about something personal to balance out all the book spotlights I’ve been doing for the last few weeks. I admit, all those bookish posts are a sign of how lazy I am to blog about other things.

Anyway, not gonna ramble long about that. So, I’m basing this mid-year check on my new year post last January. Here we go!

Funky Things Monday: Father’s Day Picks from Gifts Less Ordinary

Father’s Day is right around the corner, folks! Got anything special planned for the dads in your life?

I’ve to admit, I’m not really the gift-giving type. Probably got that from my family. I mean, sure, we celebrated special days but gifts were usually reserved for birthdays and Christmas. Most probably because we weren’t well off and there were more important things to spend on. This is also probably why I’m not great at picking presents. I tend to go for things that are useful as opposed to things that are nice to have. Know what I mean?

Anyway, never mind what I was just babbling about. It’s almost Father’s Day and for those who are still clueless about what to get your dad, grandad, husband, brother, boyfriend, friend or whoever, here’s something you should check out!

Gifts Less Ordinary, an online marketplace for unique and unusual gift items, has a Father’s Day selection that’s pretty nifty if you’re looking for something cool and different for the fathers in your life!

My February is basically ‘Challenge Month’

Last month I posted my list of goals for the year and there were only six things on that list: read 3 books a month, write in my Q&A A Day For Writers journal, practice yoga, play ultimate, eat healthy and learn about chakras, meditation, etc.

These “goals” were more like “things I want to do this year” and I wanted to be pretty chill about them because I didn’t want to pressure myself. Anyway, a month into the new year I realized that some of these goals will really have to take a backseat if I focus on one or two because that’s exactly what happened.
