Wordless Wednesday #3

Not quite wordless today. This pretty much sums up how I feel about running. Plus I love the neon pink.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Due to technical difficulties, this post is a day late. In future, Wordless Wednesday will be posted on a Wednesday!

I realised a couple of days ago that I have been really slack and neglecting my little blog which disappoints me because it's something that I really wanted to work on this year. I have no real excuse for why I haven't been writing blog posts other than just being plain old lazy. Recently I discovered a few blog posts that other people had written with suggestions for how to keep your blog going, even when you're not feeling particularly motivated. One of the suggestions was Wordless Wednesday.

The idea behind Wordless Wednesday is to upload a photo or a bunch of photos that you have taken recently. It could be your favourite of the week or one you just found particularly interesting. The trick is finding a photo that doesn't need a lot of words (if any) to describe it. So here is my first "Wordless Wednesday". A collage of photos of flowers that I saw while walking with my husband and our dog last night.

Enjoy :)

One Little Word - January Review

So it turns out that people are finding my blog and reading it so I thought I should do an update on my One Little Word progress.

I really enjoyed working through the January prompts, especially once I had changed my word from "Believe" to "Live". I'm so happy I made the change because I definitely want to invite Live into my life as I really do want to LIVE this year and every year that follows. It has also been interesting to note how I am already living, what I am afraid of, and what I am looking forward to over the next 11 months. I'm also glad that I took the time to really think about these things and didn't race through them (not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just wasn't right for me).

You've already seen my cover page but here it is again along with the blog post before this one about my OLW (apologies for the glare, I took these photos at 9:30pm!).

For the second page I have followed Ali's layout by cutting down one of the pocket pages to show only 6 pockets instead of 9. The bottom right pocket on the front of the page is blank/empty on purpose. For the whole month I couldn't figure out what to put there. At first I was going to put another selfie, then I was going to put a wedding photo of myself and my husband, then I was going to wait until I got the kit and put something there but nothing really seemed to fit. Yesterday I decided to leave it empty so I could put a selfie there at the end of the year. I'm hoping to see some kind of change between then and now but of course if another photo presents that fits then I will consider putting it in instead.

The other side of that pocket page has a photo of myself with our pound puppy, Lexi, and a photo of my husband with Lexi as well. The quote image came from pinterest and the card above it is a Maggie Holmes rub-on transfer. The typing on both the definition and let go cards was done in MS Word using a font called "Splendid 66".

Next up is the page with more prompts and the intentions page. I've decorated these simply because I felt like they needed something and purple stamps and highlighting was just the thing. The butterfly stamp and shooting star stamp are from Typo, and I think the Shine stamp is a Studio Calico one but I could be wrong.

Well that is January done and dusted and I'm quite proud of how it's turned out so far. I have read over these prompts so often already and I can imagine how often I am going to read over them in the future. 

We received the prompt for February today and have been told it includes a vision board which I have always wanted to create but never actually sat down and spent the time to do so. I have a whole bunch of interior design magazines (I'm currently studying interior design and decoration) so I can't wait to get stuck into them and see what I can come up with. Stay tuned because you know I'll be sharing on the blog!

One Little Word 2015

Late last year I discovered Project Life and pocket scrapbooking. Alongside that I also discovered Ali Edwards. Ali runs a few classes a year such as December Daily, Day in the Life, Week in the Life, and of course, One Little Word.

2015 Popsugar Reading Challenge

It’s no secret that I love to read. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Crime, Autobiographies, fiction, non-fiction, blogs, I’ll read just about anything. I have a Kindle and also a decent collection of paperbacks and I thoroughly enjoy reading before bed, or even just sitting in the shade on a beautiful day with a good book. Often I get carried away to lands I have never dreamed of, reading stories involving creatures of many different types, burying my nose only to surface after hours have passed because the sun has gone down and I can no longer see the words.
