The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick,  My Life Goals Journal by Andrea Hayes, and Big Magic by Liz Gilbert!

This week I’ve been fairly productive. I’ve started my daily journaling, about life and my thoughts in general, and as well as that I’ve been making a dent in the Creative Writing dimension too! It has been incredibly long since I’ve last sat down and written a piece of fiction but I composed something the other night that I genuinely felt may have some substance for a full novel. I’ve very rarely felt that way about anything I’ve written and I’m very excited to see how this concept develops for me!

I’ve been listening to Music for Concentration on Spotify when I’ve been reading and writing. I’m the type of person that needs instrumental music in the background if I’m reading because songs with words make me lose my concentration!

A candle I’ve got burning that is for your Heart Chakra! A beautiful green candle with a gorgeous scent! I bought it in Dervish in Cork City for any Corkonians out there who might be interested!

H O P I N G

That I can get on top of all of the coursework I have to do at the moment. Drowning slightly with the workload and a full-time job but this blog and my reading and writing is helping to keep me sane!

Black Yoga Pants, a grey tee with beaded embroidery, black New Balance runners, and my leather jacket!

Big Magic by Liz Gilbert! I bought it on Friday evening and I’m almost finished it! It’s definitely a book I needed to read. It’s letting me understand that it’s ok to write a book that never gets published and makes you world famous… it’s all about the love of the art, the creative process. It’s allowed me to push some of my fears aside and get stuck in! As she says, “Done is better than good!”

To be pampered! A nice spa day wouldn’t go astray!

N E E D I N G

I need a good night’s rest! I still feel exhausted from last week and am really looking forward to bed tonight.

Very grateful for winning The Valiant Blogger Award this week! I still feel so stunned by the whole thing. You can catch my acceptance post here!

I saw Trainspotting 2 the other evening! I wasn’t a fan of the first one but got tickets for this one because my boyfriend really wanted to see it, and I must admit I really enjoyed this one! The “Choose Life” monologue in this movie was amazing! Very true to today’s society!

I’ve also watched this video by Ellen DeGeneres and just feel like the whole world needs to watch it:

R E A D I N G

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck by Sarah Knight, The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick, and My Life Goals Journal by Andrea Hayes 

W R I T I N G

Ok! So I’ve started the book My Life Goals Journal by Andrea Hayes and it’s a journal where you really have to sit down and think about yourself and the goals you want to set! 


Yesterday I bought myself a new writing journal (as if I really needed another one) and I sat down to work on the first few tasks in the book. I’ve made lists about the type of person I feel I am; e.g., a teacher, a sister, a daughter…etc. And I’ve written down where I would like to see myself this time next year. My next task is to write down the words I want to identify with! I am happiness, I am fun, I am successful! I’m excited to see how this book impacts my life! It’s not just a once off book, it’s a year long project and I’m seriously excited about it! 

L I S T E N I N G

I’ve been listening to Liz Gilbert’s podcast Big Magic, very encouraging and inspirational! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book and get myself psyched up to write my first novel! 

S M E L L I N G

Smoked Bacon! Someone is cooking and it smells amazing! 

H O P I N G

That I get back on track for Slimming World! I’ve been very off track the last two weeks so I need to get my mojo back and get rid of the extra pounds! 

W E A R I N G

My Law of Attraction top and tracksuit bottoms! Such lovely positive loungewear! 

L O V I N G

Today! It’s been such a lovely Sunday!  

W A N T I N G

A sun holiday! How amazing is this; a friend of mine won a sun holiday worth €1300 the other day… her boyfriend had won the exact same prize just two weeks earlier! Absolutely phenomenal! 

N E E D I N G

 For someone to cook for me! Today has been a total veg day!  We’ve played three games of Scrabble! My brain  is absolutely fried after it and I have zero energy for cooking dinner! 

F E E L I N G

Very chilled out and also very in control of my life! Even though I am totally overwhelmed with work and other commitments, I feel like the books I’m reading are very much keeping my head above water! 

W A T C H I N G

We’ve watched Hacksaw Ridge, Moana, and Storks all whilst playing scrabble. Of all three movies I must say I enjoyed Storks the most! I’m a huge war movie fan and even though Hacksaw Ridge was good,  and Andrew Garfield gave an outstanding performance, as a whole I thought it was only ok! 

Until next Sunday!
