Monthly Recaps My life

January is OVER and now it’s FEBRUARY!{a recap}

Why, good morning, my lovely readers! πŸ™‚ I hope this Monday has gone good for you so far.

I cannot believe that February 2019 is here already. Since it’s the beginning of the month, that calls for a recap of last month. πŸ˜‰ So… let’s get started! πŸ™‚

Posts from January…

My 2019 Resolutions + Some Christmas Gifts

December in Review (this post is late. :P)

An Interesting Post in which I FINALLY do some tags I was nominated for with the help of my sister!

BLOG TOUR: The Daily Life of Hailey Grace. GUEST POST + SPOTLIGHT.


So… about this… as you can see, I’ve hardly been posting this month. At the moment, this is all I can fit in, but come summer and the new school year, my schedule will be changing drastically!! Then, I’ll probably have a more free schedule and post more. So I’m excited for that! πŸ˜€ (also then, I’ll probably just post whenever… not necessarily on Mondays… I might re-design my blog at some point too…?)

Just keeping you guys updated! πŸ˜‰
