Happy 1st of October (a.k.a. Halloween Month) everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful September (even though I know a lot of you returned to school this past month, haha). I feel your pain, I do. I’m done with school…but I will always remember that mix of stress, excitement, and anxiety. Anyway, below I have listed all of the things that have happened on my blog this past September, as well as a crazy, insane, mega book haul! I didn’t even realize how many books I’d acquired this past month until I made this post! I might have to make a blog post about it, because I feel bad just showing you guys pictures about the insanity. Or maybe I’ll spare you the details, haha. Maybe let me know what you’d prefer? Happy reading!
I’m sorry guys, but Jin was too busy to send out kisses this time around. Also, I really wanted to use an autumn-themed GIF! And what can be more autumn-themed for me, than a pumpkin and a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte?! Well, maybe a few things. Or many things. But, these are two out of the many things that I love about autumn. I also love Fall fashion, bundling up with a cup of hot tea and a good book. Alright. On to the re-cap!
Jin and his kisses were such a hit last month that I decided to let him send you more kisses with this July wrap-up! Wow, it’s August already! I don’t know if I feel as if July went by quickly or slowly…it seems to change for me depending on the day. But I feel like it’s the former more than the latter. Summers usually fly by for me because I’m a lot more busy with friends and family while we’re enjoying the (usually) nicer weather here in Canada. Winter has all of us feeling a lot more lethargic, which is fine since that means more reading and blogging time for me. But anyways, here is what’s been going on on Flavia the Bibliophile in the past month!
Hello everyone! (Please enjoy the kisses sent to you from my BTS bias, Jin, GIF on the left)! He is seriously the cutest and dorkiest, and I love him. But anyway! As some of you may have noticed, I did not post a monthly wrap-up for May, and that’s because I was away on vacation for most of that month, and therefore hadn’t posted enough to put in a wrap-up! So, just as I’ve done with March and April, I decided to just attach the posts from May to my June wrap-up, and just put them up that way together. It just made more sense to me!
I’m not sure what happened exactly, but I somehow completely failed at writing and posting a wrap-up for March! OOPS! So, to make up for it to March (my birthday month, woopsie), and more importantly, you guys, I shall make this a joint wrap-up post. Let’s also hope that I won’t have to say sorry for doing “it again”!
February was soooo shoooort. Like, what do I even do with that?! It just flew by. I guess it doesn’t help that I spent most of it sick with the worst virus I’ve ever experienced. Seriously. It was horrid, and I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemies. Although February has come and gone far too quickly, I am excited about March because, 1) spring, and 2) it’s my birthday month! I don’t look forward to getting older, but am excited for the books I’ll be reading the products I’ll be trying and reviewing! I’m also of course looking forward to good times with friends, and getting my hair done for the first time in a while! Whoo!
January felt like such a long month! I don’t know if it’s because it’s the first month of the year or what, but it just seemed to draaag. Anyone else feel that way? Didn’t help that all of our snow melted here, and we had nothing but grey skies. But anyway, it’s over now and I’m looking forward to February, the month of loooooove! ❤
Somehow 2017 has snuck up on us, and 2016 has come to an end. While some of us celebrate the memories and achievements from the past year, others are glad to see 2016 go. And then there are those who feel a little bit of both, and I am one of those people.
And so, another month has passed and we are now entering the last 31 days of 2016. Can you believe it?! Time sure does fly. It feels as if it was just yesterday that January 2016 had begun, and I was pulling my hair out while looking over all of the course work looming in front of me, standing between me and my Master’s degree, haha. I cannot believe that it will now have been a year minus 31 days since that crazy time. Now I know that the above GIF will not be accurate for all of you (I’m not ignorant enough to believe that it snows everywhere in the world during this time of year), but here in Canada, December usually ends up looking like a winter wonderland over next months.
First and foremost….
I don’t know about you, but this is one of my favourite holidays! Unluckily, I woke up sick this morning, but I don’t think that I will let that stop me from getting dressed up and going to a haunted house hosted by my mother-in-law’s neighbours! I’m not sure what I’ll dress up as (gasp…I know, the last-minute-ness, and I swear I never let this happen! But I was away from Oct 2nd until the 27th and I just didn’t have time to figure something out)…but I think I’ll go with some skeleton face paint!
