books, knitting, food and whatever else I want to write about

Sponsored post: Use Grammarly's plagiarism checker because you don't want to become like Shia LaBoeuf. From BTT this week: What do you think of fanfiction? In general—do you think it’s a fun thing or a trespass on an author/producer’s world? And of course, obviously specific authors have very firm and very differing opinions about this, yet it’s getting more popular and more mainstream all the time. Do you ever read or write it yourself? Yes,…

This is a continution of my Filofax Malden Setup and Updates posts just covering the pens I use and other tips I like. As with some other Filofaxers, I bought one of these Passport Holder organisers which really do fit a lot of pens and random post-its and stickers. I am not one of those Filofaxers who decorate their planner; it's just not for me. I do like the occasional sticker and sticky note though.…

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] From Top to Bottom: Mini Chameleon in Red, Pocket Finsbury in Yellow (more mustard than it appears here), Personal Malden in Vintage Pink, A5 Malden in Ochre[/caption] It’s been more than half a year since I got my first Filofax, and I have been very satisfied with my Personal Malden. I do not really use the A5 Malden or the Mini Chameleon. The latter has been used on a couple occasions…

Hello, everyone! I have not been reading very much lately. I've been too busy and tired to read most days. Some readers like to read to unwind, but I am really active and like a book to take me away for hours and hours. Time of which I do not have lately. As for my book of today, I am still undecided. I could read my Classics Spin book (Kim by Rudyard Kipling), but I…

Last summer, I started riding my bike for the first time in over 15 years. I really enjoyed it as I commuted to work. As the weather got colder, so did my face! I am not even a fast cyclist and quite slow really. I still need something to protect my face on early morning bike rides. I also thought it would could double as a running balaclava. As with others on Ravelry, I was…

It’s harder for me to write about a show I love because it’s hard to find fault with things you love. Objectively, I know this show is not the smoothest at times and it’s not for everyone. For me, I was engrossed with this little series. I’m excited for the premiere of season two in April. As follows are ten reasons why I liked this show: (more…)

2013 Knitting Flickr Slideshow: A little late on the knitting review and the 2014 goals, but knitting has just become less of a priority these days. Among my friends and colleagues, I am still known as the knitter, but this is less applicable to me nowadays as I read more, socialize more, exercise more and other more things than knit. In 2013, I only completed eight projects but worked on about three or four (two…

The Fourth Classics Spin from the Classics Club. As with before, I must pick twenty books, then a random number will be selected and each of us must read the number listed at X number by April 1, 2014. These Spins are really useful because other reads and activities have taken me away from the challenge often. My challenge is that I own almost every one of these books so I must read them to…

My third Netflix show this month. I’m just going through them based on recommendations and why not, so far all of them are entertaining, In general, I do not like prison shows or movies. They can be excessively violent, but I heard great reviews of this show. Furthermore, I heard it wasn’t too violent and that it was humanistic. I’m also interested in female centric shows. There are a lot of male centric or shows…
