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!

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!

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:
