Common Scenes : 1

If you've been hanging around the traps for a while, you may recall I posted about wanting to notice the smaller things in life and capture them by taking photos. You may have also noticed that I never posted anything about that since. Well, that's not true, I took a couple of photos on Instagram under the hashtag #mymomentoflovely but, other than that, not much else happened on the My Moment of Lovely front. I've decided to change that. Hooray!…

I’m Tired

Well hi there, friend. How are you doing? I hope you're doing well. I'm pretty pooped myself. Tired, buggered, exhausted, or fair wabbit as my Pa might say (...I don't know either...he's Scottish.) And I don't just mean temporarily. I've been feeling a bit over it all since before Christmas - and by "it" I mean blogging. I think part of it is to do with feeling like I needed to write every week and to try and be innovative…

2015 Reading Challenge

Goodreads Reading Challenge : 2015

At the beginning of 2015, I set myself the slightly ridiculous challenge of reading fifty books in the year. You can read more about it here but my basic thought process was that I had a lot of books sitting on my bookshelves that I hadn't read and I wanted to change that. I'd rather gaze upon my shelves and mentally check off the majority of them as read, rather than just seeing a looming, ever-growing "to read" pile. So…

2016 : Looking Forward

In my last post I wrote about my thoughts on 2015. Today, like the predictable blogger I am, I wanted to write about 2016. I'm not really a huge fan of resolutions specifically being made at New Year's, purely because if you want to make a change in your life badly enough, I figure you should just do it when it suits you best and not wait until the start of a new year. Now is as good a time as…

2015 : Looking Back

Well, that was 2015. Apparently. I mean, I don't really recall seeing it in full detail myself, but I've heard rumblings on the street that yes, that was indeed the year 2015 done and dusted. Huh. I guess that means it's time for another summary of the year that was, hey? I'm going to cut right to the chase and say it - 2015 feels as if it's been far less impressive than 2014. Last year I went overseas for…

Taking Stock : December 2015

So I lost track of the day. This post probably should have gone up on Sunday but what with it being holidays, house and cat sitting for my sister, and just general wanting to let me brain relax-ness, it slipped my mind. But I'm not going to whine about how little there is left of 2015; I'll save that for another post. For now, here is the last Taking Stock post for the year 2015 - and it's the full…

Chain of Hearts

"Indoor plants aren't cool", I told myself. "Indoor plants are weird. What do they even do?", I wondered. Oh, past Jacquie. What a fool you were, an absolute FOOL. Don't worry though, I now know that indoor plants are the bomb dot com. You can get so many different types - small, big, drooping, contained, you name it. As you may recall from numerous posts in the past, I have a few indoor plants. There's Mary the maiden hair fern,…
