If you’re like me, you love looking for new books that will inspire you to be a better person. Books are the perfect way how to dwell on a conversation that you knew nothing about before. In the new year, my husband and I have decided to elevate our health, happiness, and home. Here are […]

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are here! And what would these days be without any good promotion and shopping for Christmas gifts? Whether you’re buying something for yourself or for someone you care about, I have a great deal for you, too. Starting today on Black Friday, 24 November 2017, and ending on Friday, 1 […]
What would a trip to San Francisco be without a look at the local bookstores? I’ve researched a couple of them before the trip and it was a good idea. I looked for the most local ones and ones that had some history. And I wasn’t disappointed! Here’s my quick tour of four bookstores I […]
I have a story to tell. Long story short: in 2010, NaNoWriMo changed my life. Now the short story long. In 2010, I was attending university but when I entered the third semester, I knew I no longer wanted to continue with my studies.

You can’t get any praise without some criticism, that’s what I learnt from Lynnda Pollio, whom I met in New York this summer. Two years after she published her book, Trusting the Currents, she sold a few thousand copies and won 12 awards. I met Lynnda on a hot sunny day in New York close to Union […]

As I was browsing some new releases in books, they gave me this nice nostalgic feeling of summer. Summer blues books – that’s what they are for me.

I was in New York and suddenly, I became so tired of everything that I couldn’t even bother to look at my phone. Posting on Instagram seemed pointless. I […]
A Crazy Idea New York book reading of The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar went exactly the way I never thought it would go. From the beginning to the end. When I had this idea to do a book reading in NY, I knew I was crazy. But I […]
The much awaited adventure of the summer has come true. After 6-months of planning, organising, and creating connections in city I’d never been to before, I hosted a book reading of The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar in San Francisco.
