How to get out of a book slump

We all suffer from it from time to time.. the dreaded book slump. That moment when you finish a book that was so great, that you can’t move on. Or when you’re just not in the mood to read at all.

Decluttering 101

I’ll admit it.. I am a horribly messy person. Especially when I am busy, my entire room just seems to become such a cluttered mess.

How I Edit My Pictures 2.0

Hello lovely readers! I thought it was about time I do another “how I edit my pictures” post, since by now I’ve completely revamped my theme. I’ve been using this particular set of edits for a while now, and I must say that I really like this theme. I think it’s one of my favorites! Even though it’s kind of wintery, I think I’m going to keep it a little while longer. At least until I figure out how I want to do my spring/summer theme. Anyhoo, without further ado, here is the video of my edits! Now even with…
