    January Wrap-Up, February TBR & Bullet Journal | Bujo Snippets

    Oh my goodness, January is already gone! 2020 is already flying past and this month I am super proud of how much I read and the new spreads I created in my bullet journal. Since you guys liked seeing my spreads so much last time, I figured I’d regularly post these Bujo snippets to show my wrap-up, TBR and setup for the month. Speaking of my bullet journal… Like I mentioned last time, I own an Archer & Olive B6 dotted bullet journal, and my journey in bullet journalling basically took a turn because when I went on my holiday to Korea, I found this gorgeous planner. A planner so…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 5 | Blog Buttons: Necessary or Not?

    It’s unfortunate, but I feel like Blog Buttons are a dying accessory in the blogging world but is it even necessary? Welcome to the FINAL day of our Blogiful Event! Kat and I have been loving sharing more blog design posts to you guys this week and for my final post, I’m going to be exploring blog buttons! Firstly, what is a blog button? A blog button is basically the button-shaped equivalent of your header/logo. It is inherently an extension of your blog’s brand and should basically include your blog’s name and look like it’s got the same branding or at least colours of your blog. For me example, I’ll…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 4 | Built for Mobile: What is Responsive Blog Design?

    Ever wondered what that description on WordPress themes meant? What does ‘responsive‘ mean when it comes to a blog theme? Well, wonder no more because today, I’m going to tell you exactly what responsive blog design is! *cue enthusiastic cheer for this short educational post* If you haven’t seen it before when searching for a WordPress theme, then I highly recommend that you do, if and when you decide to vamp up your blog. The good news is, most blog themes on WordPress are responsive – but what does that even mean? It’s All About Mobile Probably one of the most expensive things you own, that is essentially a mini-computer…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 3 | How to Make Your Blog More Visible: SEO 101

    Welcome to Blogiful Day 3! Today’s topic is a big one. A topic that I’m not even an expert at (although my colleague is since I work in Marketing). Despite that, I’m going to try and explain the wonders of SEO as simply as I can. In understandable English, without all the jargon – in the context that you guys are bloggers (experts don’t shoot me). Don’t worry if you’re scared of technical things, because most of the important parts of SEO are not technical at all (and you might already be doing them too!) It is, unfortunately, another technical subject that makes it less accessible unless you self-host your…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 2 | Blog Signatures: Why & How?

    Welcome to Blogiful Day 2! I really hope you guys enjoyed the posts Kat and I published yesterday for our official Blogiful event launch. Today, I am bringing you another cool topic I’ve had some questions about in the past ~ the mighty blog signature. If you’ve read posts on my blog before, you’ll know that they usually always end with a cute lil blog signature that says ‘love, truffles’ and my social media links (check it out now, down below if you haven’t). And, there are many reasons why blog signatures are and should most definitely be a thing – which is what I’ll be sharing with you today,…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 1 | More Than A Font: The Low-down on Typography Licenses

For this event, we are also holding a HUGE blog design giveaway which you should totally enter HERE. Let Us Begin! The topic of the day: It’s ALL about FONTS. Kat and I have talked about it and we’ll talk about it again – Fonts can sometimes make or break your blog’s design. But first, in case you’re not sure; what is a font? A typeface is the overall design of lettering;[1] the design can include variations, such as extra bold, bold,…

    Blogger Recognition Award

    In the timely truffle fashion, I was nominated for this amazing award like, 6 months ago by Kat from Novels & Waffles and I have finally gotten around to doing it! I don’t really do award or tag posts very often – not sure why – maybe cause my brain is too lazy and thinks it’s too timeconsuming? But, here I am – finally catching up on these awards and tags. A huge thanks to Kat again for nominating me <3 I feel so utterly privileged to have been awarded for my blogging aspirations. Kat is so freaking talented and amazing – and accomplishes so much on her little corner…

    Tweet Cute Book Review | Blog Tour

    This is another book that I’ve been so happy to see on so many people’s TBRs for this year. I am so honoured to be part of the blog tour for this book, a huge thank you to St Martin’s Press and Macmillan for sending me the review eARC and letting me get in on this cute book. Jacket Blurb: Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming — mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.  Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in…

    Ninth House Book Review

    I finally finished the book that’s been on everyone’s ‘Anticipated Releases of 2019’ OR ‘Books I Wish I Read in 2019’ if they haven’t read it already. Boy, am I proud of myself cause I almost gave up halfway. Goodreads Blurb Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at…
