Hi all, long time no recap post! So sorry I was MIA for awhile! A lot happened in the last two months; I had finals, I got sick, and then I went on vacation. I did manage to post here and there, but I’m still trying to get back on a schedule! So, just in case you missed anything, here’s the recap!
Okay, I tried to read, but I kind of hit a road block here. As a result, I only reviewed three books in two months. I actually tried to do the #DiversityDecember Challenge, but I had too much on my plate and I failed.
- Vampire Academy 10th Anniversary Edition
- Spice and Wolf vol. 1 by Isuna Hasekura
- The Moon in the Palace by Weina Dai Randel
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I live for historical fiction! I love reading about everything from ancient Greece to ancient Egypt, from British history to Middle Eastern history. Lately I’ve been enjoying reading about Central and Southeast Asian history, which has been really fun! I’ve seen tons of Korean and Chinese historical dramas, but I haven’t read many books.
Books I Bought
I got In the Country for my mom, but I plan on reading it too. I also bought The Princess Diarist for my sister.
I got a lot of makeup for Christmas, so that was nice (thanks Lily lol)! Like I said before, I was really busy. So I kind of slacked off, but fear not, I have new makeup and skincare content coming your way! Until then, here’s the one makeup post I manage to put up.
I posted a poem I wrote ages ago, and I got a pretty positive responce so I plan on putting more stuff like that out–eventually. I don’t know if it will be this month or not.
- Original Poem: Over Night
- The Jingle Bell Tag
- My Top Seven Reads from 2016
- My 7 Travel Essentials for Every Bookworm
I was packing for my vacation and I was watch travel videos, and I was inspired to put out a travel essentials. I also had a makeup travel essentials planned, but I think I’ll save that one for spring break!
Like I said earlier, a lot happened! I had finals during the 3rd week of December, and I managed to get sick on the last day. I took my Chinese language test, and I somehow managed to get an A (even though I barely remember taking it).
We had Christmas, and the New Year, and then the Lunar New Year! I also worked on all three of those holidays… On the bright side I went to Florida (and Georgia) for ten days! It was lit. I went with my childhood best friend and her family. It was so great, I ate fresh sea food, and we went to the beach!
In Georgia we went to the Swiss Consulate so she (my friend) could renew her passport, and then we went to the aquarium. I got to see Jellyfish, which is like my fave (after foxes of course)!
I had a lot of fun! Sadly, I had to go home, and then Alaska was it by a huge snow storm. Of course, when it wasn’t snowing, it was below zero. Which killed me. If you follow me on twitter (ahem, hint hint lol) I was giving live updates on the weather.
So yeah, that was my life for the last two months! Right now, I’ve kind of just been trying to get through the new semester, and getting back on a steadying posting schedule.
I want to do more things than just review posts, so next Monday I have a Winter Skincare Routine coming your way! I was going to post it last week, but that didn’t happen because I put a book review up instead.
If you have anything you’d like to see on this blog, let me know! Do you prefer the review posts? Thanks for reading!
