Book 10:
"I See You" by Clare Mackintosh
Plot: Zoe Walker takes the same route to work every day, going to the same train station and the same platform, sitting in the same seat. One day, she sees a picture of herself in the classified ads, along with a phone number and a website, FindTheOne.com. The next day, it's a different woman's photo. And a different one after that. Each day, it's a different woman, and Zoe realizes that it might not be a coincidence, because they've all become victims of increasingly violent crimes. Has someone been watching Zoe? Could she be the next target?

and in doing so, I make it true.
Did we drift? Or did I push?
Temporary.
And
whose
fault
is
that
?

Coming up with ideas, writing them out, planning, scheduling, taking (relevant) pictures, promoting each post so it can actually reach an audience.

While I don't believe there's any "right" or "wrong" way to blog, I did want to give a little peek behind the scenes on how an ordinary girl who works full-time also manages to regularly blog, along with a few tips.

We'll start with the oldest trick in the book...

On Loving Yourself (Properly)


We've all heard about the importance of self-love and taking care of yourself both physically and mentally, but I came across something the other day that put it in a whole new light.
