Sunday Coffee Morning | Brighter Outlook


Good Morning My Lovelies!
Currently sipping on some Carte Noire whilst catching up on YouTube videos. I'm about  to go get ready to film. I have been such a bad youtuber and blogger this month. I just don't even know what's going on with me. (Probably too much reading!)

Speaking of too much reading, I need to stop requesting things on Net Galley. I figured that with my blog not having too many reviews and with posting being quite infrequent that I wouldn't get approved for a lot. So I have just been going through and requesting whatever took my fancy... and so far I've been approved for 57 books. Yikes! What have I done? I'm still waiting to hear about a bunch more too. I'll be set for reading material for a while. I'd hate to think how large my TBR has gotten (I fear I'm hitting 500...).
I've got a Project Minimalist update coming soon! I've been doing really well. I've refrained from purchasing and have been rediscovering so many amazing things. I've been really creative with my makeup and making progress with finishing things. I'm so excited and motivated at the moment and I can't wait to share it all with you :).
So fingers crossed for more regular posting both on my blogs and on Youtube. 
Love and Bugs

Fifteen For Free | Summer Reads





Hello My Lovelies!
Now we're well into july I've found myself craving some Summer reads. Being short of space (and cash) I decided to raid the Kindle Freebies. And I was quite surprised at what I found, lots of good stories.
I decided to share some of best picks. Originally I was aiming for five titles, but I couldn't narrow it down which is why I have fifteen listed below. (I have several more I could recommend too)
These are a mix of short stories, novellas and full novels. They are all contemporaries ranging from YA to NA. And they're all free right now!

Sunday Afternoon Tea | Procrastination Comes In Entertaining Forms

Hello My Lovelies!
I'm still not meeting my own goals :( But then what's new about that.This week I watch seasons 2&3 of Game of Thrones. It's wrong that I really like Cersei, and I think Sansa is choosing not to use her inner strength. Watching GoT is so immersing it's too easy to lose track of time.
I've also been reading a lot this week. I got approved to review a lot of NetGalley books so that will keep me busy. Some of them look like they're going to be awesome.
I'm not going to promise anything this week, I don't want to disappoint. I have been in a bit of a filming slump and I don't like how things have been turning out. I'm thinking of a three video a week schedule for the next few months though. That way there is regular content and I don't stress out. I'm also think of an alternating post schedule for my blogs. One day I'll post here and the next on the book blog.
Let me know what you think. If there's anything you want to see.
Love and Bugs

Sunday Coffee Morning | Books, Jibber Jabber and Thank You

Good Morning My Lovelies!
I hope you had a lovely week, mine just flew by.
I took up the challenge of Camp Nanowrimo again. I'm spending a hour each night working on it. I rebooted my story idea from April. Check out That Book Freak if you want hear more, I'll be updating my progress there.
This week I also discovered Net Galley, a source for find books for review. As far as I'm aware any with some form of bookish influence can use this site. It's completely free and all they ask for is honest feedback. When I first logged on I didn't think I'd be approved for many titles, so I figured I'd just scour through lists and request anything I liked the sound of. And I've already been approved for a few, which was a bit thrilling. They also have selected titles on "read now" status (an added Bonus). Most of you know my library is heavily focused on Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy, I want to use this opportunity to branch into the contemporary genre. Look out for the reviews coming soon.
As I type this my videos are processing in the Editor, they'll be up soon.I also have a stack of product reviews lined up for this week. I want to thank you all for your support and encouragement over the years. I've almost reached 500 hundred subscribers and over 50 of you follow me on Bloglovin. In the vast sea that is the online beauty community I'm not the most consistent or unique, but I am forever grateful to have you here.

Love and Bugs

Sunday Coffee Morning | My Week To Come

Good Morning My Lovelies!
I hope you all had a great week :) Mine was productive for once. I know I'm not exactly daily posting, but I'm building up to that.
I'm off work tomorrow and I have a lengthy to-do list. I'll finally have a Project Minimalist update, I've had a few developments and renewed excitement. I'll also have another Bin Fodder up this week, finally makeing some progress. And I'll be sharing a bunch of Summer Picks to share with you all.
Unfortunately my Boss is making me go back to working 5 day weeks (which is really annoying). So I'm going to have to try my hardest to use my time as productively as I can. I see much coffee in my future.
I suppose on the plus side to the 5 fay week is being able to save up for a new laptop and external hard drive sooner.
I also wanted to ask you guys what you thought of journal entries? Kind of like daily vlogs but in written form. I like share my day with you, but I'm not sure if you'd find it boring.
Anyways, I must go get ready for work. I hate working weekends, the part time staff seriously drive me up the wall. Quick question. What happened in the last 10 years that prevented teenagers from learning how to clean? Ugh! I could rant about cloths for an hour lol.
Love and Bugs
xoxo
