Goals for 2015

I'm not the biggest fan of New Year's resolutions because I don't see anything special in January 1st; the fact that it marks the beginning of a new cycle of 365 days doesn't help me to feel more motivated for some reason, and besides, I think that any day of the year is as goos as the next to tell yourself "I want to do this" if that's what makes you happy. Another reason is also that I'm never able to stick to them.. but it's mainly for the former reason tho.

On the other hand, I've tried compiling lists of goals in the past, mostly because I felt pressured to do it - silly me - as I saw lots of friends very motivated and eager to do, change, or try new things in the upcoming year.

As I've mentioned, however, all this attempt have miserably led to nothing as a) I completely forgot about those goals as the year went by, and b) I struggled to keep my motivation high for lack of incentives.

To stay true to myself - or better - to avoid lying to myself, I decided not to write a list of resolutions this year, but instead a list of 'things I'd like to do' without the pressure of having to stick to it; a bucket list, basically.

Definitely not in order of importance, that's what's on the list:

  • Keep up with my Filofax
  • Work on more products for my Etsy Shop
  • Exercise more, ha
  • Graduate University (that would be about time)
  • Get my half sleeve tattoo done
  • Host a new snail mail project
  • Read at least 5 books
  • Start a new scrapbook
  • Keep an art journal
  • Always write more

And you, how do you feel about NY resolutions? If you have a bucket list for 2015 feel free to share it, I'd love to hear about what you wish to accomplish this year β˜Ί

Mailbox Monday: I'm not a beauty blogger, but...

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you're probably tired of me talking about this, BUT it's a big deal to me, ok?! ( ΰ²₯_ΰ²₯)~

You can read the whole story here, so this post won't be super long, but basically: there's a youtuber I really love that had a collaboration box made with Memebox (a Korean subscription beauty box) and she used a drawing I made of her as cover art, and moreover, I was sent a box as well!

So, now, I may not be a beauty blogger, but here's a little known fact about me: I kinda enjoy makeup, and I really enjoy watching some beauty gurus on YouTube.

But let's cut to the chase! Take a look at the amazing goodies I got in the box!

There were 7 full size (!) products, including some brands I always wanted to try: 

I am seriously so happy about this opportunity, so a HUGE thank you to Stephanie for loving my drawing so much and hooking me up with a box! (And you, if you're into edgy fashion and makeup, check out her channel, I'm sure you're gonna love it!)

Thanks for reading, hope you're having an awesome week! β™₯

To New Beginnings.

Hello there, 

if you're reading this it means you're coming from my old blog, so thank you for taking the time to follow me over here!

It's been three years since I opened my blog on Blogspot, and I've had a total blast! I met so many cool people and friends thanks to it, and it will always have a spacial place in my heart, but as you may as well noticed, it has started to loosing points lately, and I didn't enjoy the platform as much as I did when I started. 

My blog feed would basically never work, they removed the Google Friend Connect widget which is buggy and useless now.. and most of all, even tho I have HTML & CSS knowledge, creating a template was too much of an hassle and I couldn't settle for a free template I liked. I know, major issues, right?!

Anyway, for these and other reasons related to my blog URL, I decided to take a leap of faith and start over, which is gonna be either a very good decision or a super fail, but I'm still excited for this new chapter nonetheless!

I don't want to jinx myself by saying this out loud, but I also seem to have found a renewed pleasure in writing, so you can expect more frequent updates and posts from me (I planned a few fun segments that I hope you guys will enjoy as well).

Although I felt like the first post here should have been an explanation for this change, I don't want it to be all about that. As a thank you for sticking around, I'm hosting a giveaway for a "penpal goodie bag" filled with stuff from my etsy shop :)

Good luck and thanks again β™₯
