One of my New Year’s resolutions, and probably the only one I am going to try the hardest to commit to, is updating the blog more. Like, regularly. I know right? Shocker. As you are well aware of, I have neglected the blog during the last weeks. Okay, okay. A month and a half MAYBE. But moving on, new year, new dreams. And in this case, it’s time to shovel and make up for the time lost. And what’s better than closing the 2017 chapter of our lives with a Best and Worst?
“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favourite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” – Stephen King, Salem’s Lot
And just like that, the most photogenic season fell upon us and left us with the best excuse to embrace nature (dead or alive), sweaters (fluffy or oversized), hot drinks (pumpkin or cinnamon spiced) and basically, anything cosy and within the orange palette.
Because around here, it’s all about the palette. And all the things mentioned above. That’s why I’d like to welcome you to my little homage to Booktober, the best month to make book puns and come up with excuses to pick up leaves from the street or get these teeny tiny pumpkins no one actually eats.
This is Booktober, folks.
During the last few weeks I have been getting more and more messages asking me for bookstagram tips and advice. This gave me the best excuse to finally sit down and give form to this post I have been wanting to write for a while. Before you dive into it, know that there is a big part of rambling. If you get through that, you are a champion – and you must like me very much.
Last week I opened a Q&A session in instagram so we could get to know each other a little bit better. You guys were amazing, as usual, and sent a bunch of great questions about me, my bookish habits and the non-bookish side of my life. So, as promised, here are all of the answers and some gifs because I just can’t help myself.
I know, I know. I am known for always being late to all the hype trains and Pinterest is no different. So what, I am not the best at joining the trends when everyone seems to do it… but I eventually get there and when I do, I am all in. And let me tell you, Pinterest is the ultimate time consuming and procrastinating tool. But for the booklover, it goes beyond DIY and home decor, oh it does. For the booklover, Pinterest is the infinite source of aesthetic and inspiration.
