2017 is a wrap! I can’t say I’m too sad to see it go, as it was certainly a trying year for the world. Though by this point, I’m sure you’re sick of posts talking about how unfortunate of a year it was.

I’d much rather focus on the positive aspects, and wrap it up with an optimistic hope of what 2018 may bring! I’m currently trying to harness all of my creative energy into getting back into blogging and YouTube. I don’t know about you other content creators out there, but I found it hard to find and channel inspiration throughout much of 2017. Even my Instagram suffered, and I posted much less frequently than I had hoped. That’s my first goal of 2018: to post more on Instagram and my blog!

Here’s a recap of my December on Instagram:

I hope you all had a happy and fun holiday season, and I wish you the best for 2018!

I took a bit of a blogging break, to rest and rejuvenate. Any fellow writers or creative personalities will know exactly what I mean when I say sometimes we need to take a step back, rest, and let the creative juices replenish.

To get back into the swing of blogging, I thought I’d share my monthly Instagram recaps. March was full of colour and a continuation of my new obsession – my bullet journal! If you’d like a post dedicated to the bullet journaling system, and how I set my journal up, let me know!

Here’s what my March looked like on Instagram:

Did November even happen? I’m convinced it was just a myth, and we’re still in October. I swear it was just Halloween, and now you’re trying to tell me it’s already December? 

Instagram seems to be the only tangible evidence I have of the month passing – here’s a recap of my November on Instagram!

Stay tuned for Blogmas, starting tomorrow!

While I’m always sad to say goodbye to October (because I am in fact Wednesday Addams at heart) something about the Holiday season always warms my heart. My October consisted mainly of working, with a smidge of spookiness dispersed throughout (and of course obsessing over some new makeup purchases!)

Here’s a recap of my October on Instagram:

Is it seriously already March?! Did we enter some sort of time warp in which time passes in hyperspeed?

February passed in the blink of an eye, with the hustle and bustle of my birthday and the busyness of work.

Here’s what my February looked like on Instagram:
