#bingewatchers | August To Binge List

#BingeWatchers is hosted by Books, Movies, Reviews, Oh My! and Because Reading. It’s the perfect way to chat with other Binge Watchers, ask for suggestions or just review the seasons you watched. This is my first time joining #bingewatchers and I’m really excited. My job is really laid back where I spend most of my time binge watching a show because lets face I have a 5, 4, and 2 year old and they control the TV. In my bullet journal, I actually keep track of all the shows I […]

August 2017 Bullet Journal Set Up

My August 2017 Bullet Journal set up was something I was looking forward to doing and when I decided to do a color scheme I thought the primary colors would be amazing! And now 7 days into August, I absolutely hate it. But that’s the best part about bullet journaling, you learn as you go. While I may hate the color scheme, I’ve found these spreads to be actually pretty good. I’m looking to revamp completely in September so I’m really excited to show you that set up next month. […]

The Make Me Read It Readathon is hosted by Ely and Val. The readathon takes place from August 6th to August 13th. How does Make Me Read It Readathon Work? Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you […]

Review | Just For Now by Abbi Glines

Just For Now is the fourth book in the Sea Breeze series. This one is about Amanda and Preston. Both characters have been introduced in previous Sea Breeze stories but this time they take center stage. Just For Now is much more mature then the previous Sea Breeze novels. I also feel like this one really pushed into the new adult genre. It was more explicit, it dealt with more mature topics and it was one that made me have very mixed feelings. Part of me loved this story; the […]

As Planned By Tina | Inside My New Bullet Journal

As Planned By Tina is my little space on the blog where I share with you one of my favorite things bullet journaling. This month, I finally moved into my new bullet journal. I also bought a Create 365 Happy Planner (its not going so well with this one) because the kids will begin school soon and I feel like a regular paper planner may help keep up with everything. I’ll post about this later on. Introducing my new Bullet journal! I ordered a pink leuchtturm1917 notebook but the first […]
