Recently, I was inspired by the amazing Kaye @ Beautiful Kayekie to develop my own buttons by graphic designing. Her Bloglovin buttons are spectacularly pretty, and I wanted to create something comparable to its beauty. Continue reading

Lendle: The PERFECT Library for KINDLE Lovers Worldwide (FREE BOOKS!)

Today, I came across a magnificent website that, quite frankly, changed my life. I was scrolling across lending ebooks, and I was considering starting a library of my own (Amazon allows some titles to be lent). However, what I didn’t expect was a wonderfully massive database filled with EVERY book I’ve ever wanted off Amazon. (Although it’s probably worth mentioning that most of my wanted books are Indie, but Lendle offers all varieties; both traditionally published and indie)

This amazing, FREE website is called Lendle.

Changing the World, One Loan at a Time (Kiva – A Online Charity)

Something my mother always taught me is that, when giving away money to people in times of need, always label it as a loan. It doesn’t matter if they are your closest friends, or if you wouldn’t expect it back/don’t want it back anyway. When someone says something is a loan, there is an obligation to pay it back; the person on the receiving end will take great caution with their spending. It is not something applied to a hypothetical world –I see this behaviour in myself.

For example, I once received a $20 gift-card from my Auntie to spend at Target. I was short on things to buy, and ended up buying some heavily overpriced chocolate, low-quality headphones and a notebook that I never used. However, all that time shopping, I remember being so thankful that I didn’t have to repay the money –I had not spent it on things I need, not even the slightest. In fact, I’ve never been more careless with my money. Although having it in gift-card form did limit my options, I’m sure that, even if it was money, I would be just as careless. Continue reading

Trello: The Organiser That Keeps Everything Together

Today, I stumbled across an amazing little application and felt the need to share. It is free (there is a premium version, but that’s if you want decorative features), so it’s a risk-free, wonderful organiser. I have worked with many other applications before (such as Wunderlist, Springpad, AnyDo) but I always left them after a while, because they served various other purposes, yet not the ones I needed.

However, this changed when I came across Trello.

Stories in Exactly Six Words

Lately, I’ve found myself unable to engage in a book. I don’t know what happened, but my mind keeps shifting elsewhere, and I find myself reading poetry/watching anime/looking up quotes/ reading blog-posts instead. I am sure this is a phase that will soon pass.

Anyway, I stumbled across an imaginative site called Six Word Stories and am currently rampaging it like a hungry toddler with a cookie jar (!).

The Night-Sky, Rain Droplets and City Lights

Anybody who’s seen my Tumblr will recognise my obsession with rain and night-skies. They are absolutely beautiful, simple things in life worth cherishing and remembering. It’s currently raining now. I love rain so much.

Today is my first ever “gallery” post, and I hope you’ll like it! It’s am mixture of everywhere I want to be, see and experience even though it’s not really around the world. Like I said, I express myself mostly on Tumblr. Do you have a Tumblr? Comment below with your link, and I’ll be sure to follow you!
