Little Things

Tuesday, 5 December 2017

One of my favourite things to do is write. Hence, the blog. :) Ever since I was a child I have always loved using poems and stories to convey my emotions or simply to tell a tale. Stringing words together to tell a story that one can get lost in is almost magical to me. It goes without saying, reading is also a much loved pastime of mine. Reading and writing share a spot high up on my list of loves and self care activities.

When I started back blogging, my initial and sole reason was simply to do more of what makes me happy. To honour my passions and by extension, take very good care of myself. When I am writing or getting lost in a good book, my soul is happy. I indulged recently in a short poem on the little things that brighten my world and put a smile on my face.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Sunday, 3 December 2017

I first read 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' two years ago. Shortly after reading, I wrote a review on my old blog. I thought it was only fitting to re-post as I have just completed my second re-read of this delightful book. I am just as enthralled with it now as I was in 2015.

Friday 5th June, 2015

It's been two weeks since I closed this book and tucked it safely back on my shelf and it still lingers on in the depths of my mind. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society feels like a cherished friend, no matter the time and distance that separates us, I shall always think of it fondly.

10 Quotes that will make you want to see the World

Tuesday, 28 November 2017

I've been stricken with a serious case of wanderlust. I'm itching to get on a plane and go somewhere, anywhere. Hoping that early next year I can alleviate my wanderlust bug. *Crossing fingers* Until then, I've taken to exploring my own island and enjoying what Trinidad has to offer. While on a little beach escape today, I decided my next post would be on wanderlust and the many quotes that fuel it.


10 Feel Good Movies

Saturday, 25 November 2017

You know you are a blogger when you always have paper and a pencil nearby because post ideas can pop into your mind at anytime. Sometimes those ideas come at the most inopportune moment, like while you are showering. Not to waste a good idea, I've taken to leaving a small notepad outside my bathroom for times like this. Bloggers, you totally know what I am talking about right?!? :)

Yesterday, one such idea came to me midway through a movie. While watching 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2', I thought to myself...wouldn't it be nice to put together a list of feel good movies like this one? ... sometimes, all it takes is a happily ever after movie to lighten a day ... a list of feel good movies to choose from can definitely come in handy.  And so, it began.

Girls of Riyadh by Rajaa Alsanea

Thursday, 23 November 2017

Ever so often I come across a book that captures my heart and soul. It envelops me into its world and there is no escape until the story fades. It feels like I am right there with the characters...walking their paths, living their dreams and feeling their every emotion. Girls of Riyadh by Rajaa Alsanea is one such book that has taken me on an unforgettable journey.
