not so deep (chatty)

a little catch up!

Hello my loves!

I feel like I haven’t sat down and written a chatty post for a while now…but I have missed it. The truth is, I’ve been so busy lately I just haven’t had the chance to sit down and talk, which is why I’ve been uploading hauls left right and centre instead (it will stop soon, I promise).

First of all, how are you? Like really, how are you all doing. Tell me everything. As for me, I’ve been busy and content lately, which is a very nice feeling. Everything is going plain sailing (*touch wood*) at the moment and I used to think that maybe that was a little…boring? I thought we were supposed to have spontaneity and excitement in our lives at every twist and turn but actually, that just gives me a whole load of unnecessary anxiety that I don’t wish to have and therefore, I’m very content with just quietly sailing along calm waters, as cringey as that may sound. Everything seems to be going well at the moment – my job, the blog, uni etc. I always get so nervous when I submit an essay and my tutor marks it because I really want to do well, but the feeling I get when I receive it back and get good marks is so !! nice !!

And I don’t mean that in an arrogant way at all, it’s just so…satisfying? To put a lot of work and effort into something and to have it recognised, I also really like receiving feedback on my writing too because I’m always looking to improve and so overall in that aspect, I’ve been feeling very proud of myself! I’m looking to get a bunch of uni stuff out of the way this weekend and spend the rest of the time working on blog posts and other personal projects that I need to catch up on, so hopefully I’ll manage to be super productive.

What else…I got back into reading after a few weeks of not having enough time to do it – I was going through a phrase where I was whizzing through books left, right and centre and absolutely loving it, but then I started to get crazy busy again and reading unfortunately had to take a backseat which I was bummed about, but you can’t have everything! It feels like there’s simply just not enough hours in the day sometimes which I feel makes me sound really old but…it’s true. Am I 22 or 220. No one knows. Anyway, I’ve now gotten back into a routine and one of the books I’m currently reading is the first in the Harry Potter series…I am incredibly late to the party but I’ve never had the slightest bit of interest in Harry Potter but I felt like it was one of those things I needed to check off my reading list just to say I’d read it, you know? So that’s happening right now. It won’t take me long to finish so review coming shortly!

I’m also going to Mexico in a few months which I haven’t mentioned yet but I’m suuuper excited about it, like super, super, super excited. I really can’t wait to just lie in the sun, read some good books, eat my body weight in food and spend time with my family – I think there’s 12 of us going and it’s just going to be so nice to spend time together and just, ah. I’m so excited !! I’m also super excited for all of the blog posts I’m going to do surrounding it as well (and definitely be prepared for a photo diary). I feel like I get most inspired to write when I’m surrounded by light or I’m in the sun, and it’s been dark here for literally 6 months now so I can’t wait to just take my journal and feel creative again and hopefully write some really beautiful things. My favourite pieces of writing are usually things I’ve written in Summer when it’s warm and light and I feel all dreamy – I feel like my writing then reflects that too.

Anyway, am I rambling? Yes, yes I am, but what’s new. I also started watching my second anime a few days ago and I’m loving it !! Blog post on that coming soon too hehe. Look out for it!

Also (take a shot every time I use the word ‘also’ in this post – I need to use some different adverbs). I think I said this last time too but a huge hello to all of the new people who have joined this little space recently – welcome !! It’s always so lovely seeing new faces and I hope you enjoy your stay here and of course, a big thank you to everyone who has been around for a long time, too. You’re all my favourite people ever ever ever.

All my love,

Chloe .xx

  1. I’m happy everything is going well with you because you deserve it 💖 Is that still the case? With everything going on right now with the world I feel unfortunately more anxious. Some days I trust that everything will be fine and then the next moment I loose it 😦 I hope you can go to Mexico in a few months and I can go to Spain. I also agree that I love writing more when it’s Summer 🌞 It inspires me much more. i love you 💖💖💖💖

    1. Yes !! (hoping I don’t jinx myself here) but everything is going well so far considering the state of the world right now. This will all eventually end at some point though, as long as you stay safe and do what’s being asked you’ll be absolutely fine angel 💗 I’m sure you’re doing all of that already though. I might not get to Mexico at this point though:( which is sad but, it’s the right thing to do. I hope there’s still a chance though, maybe I can go to Mexico and you can go to Spain !! ❤️ Love you more xx

  2. I go through similar phases with reading as well – I am either reading one book after another or it is several months since I last read a book. There are just not enough hours in a day to do everything I want to do! xx

  3. I’m so glad you’re doing well, Chloe!! ❤ I totally agree with you about going through reading 'phases,' sometimes I have a ton of free time and start whizzing through books, but when things are busy I read almost nothing. Ooh, I'm excited for your review of HP! Also (oh look I do it too XP), have a lovely time in Mexico 😀 xx

  4. Totally understood the feeling when you receive your papers and get a high mark on it! You’ve worked so hard for it and everything just feels worth it!

    I still can’t move on with your HP revelation tho 🤪

    1. Right?! One of the best feelings hehe. I’ve just never been into Harry Potter either! I feel like people regard that as even more of a crime since I’m British hahaha but what can you do. If it’s not my thing it’s not my thing! X


  5. Girl Harry Potter is a must read!
    Harry potter is straight up amazing work of writing.
    I would recommend not watching the movies before the books as they basically ruin everything and also arent exact.

    1. I’ve never seen the films! Only the first one ’cause it was on TV when I was super young, and I saw the second to last one yeeears ago when it came out at the cinema ’cause my friends dragged me along to see it, but I wasn’t interested and so I hardly remember any of it haha. Maybe if I like the books I’ll watch the films after! I’ve heard a lot of bad reviews of The Cursed Child haha, will definitely never be picking that one up! 💜x

  6. I’m just.. sleepy. But otherwise okay. I’ve gotten some brand collaborations and design work lately and am thinking of turning my services into a proper business! I guess we’ll see where that goes.

    I was amused when I read the part about harry potter.. I also never got into the books or movies!

    1. Sleepy !! Story of my life oh my goodness, I don’t think there’s ever been a time where I haven’t been tired hahaha. How exciting that you’ve got those collaborations and all that work !! Hopefully it’ll go somewhere great for you ✨ you’re more than capable! HP has never interested me in the slightest but I had the opportunity to read the books for free and I thought well…now’s probably the time! X

  7. Ahh I’m so glad with how happy you sound Chloe! Also glad you’re enjoying uni! I kinda find myself missing it every now and then, so I loved getting the little update from you and living through you for a second haha! I’ve been reading so much as well, but for me personally, work and music are taking up a huge chunk of my time, and I’m not complaining! x

    1. Thank you Priya! 💙 I do feel really content right now actually which is so strange for me, I hope I’m not jinxing myself by saying it hahaha. There are definitely worse situations to be in than having work and music take up all your time – I think sometimes being busy is the best thing !! I know it is for me. Hope you’re well lovely xxx


  8. I love a good chatty blog post! I’m glad you’re doing well, Chloe ❤ Dude, reading is honestly one of the first thing that *flies* out the window once I get busy – and ASDFGHJKL how are you only just reading Harry Potter?! Thoughts, woman, thoughts!xxx

    1. Hahaha right?! This year I’ve been working on having ‘reading’ as a higher priority on my list as it’s all too easy for me to send it straight to the bottom the second I get busy, and then I complain about the fact I’m not reading regularly even though it’s one of my favourite things to do! So far I’m staying on track though and I hope I can keep it up hehe. HP has honestly never interested me but the books were free on my Kindle so I thought I may as well read them while I’ve got the chance, I feel like as a reader it’s one of those things you HAVE to have read and I need to join the club! xxx


  9. It’s good to see your doing well with school, reading and blogging
    Mine has been filled with exams , trying to post everyday because i tend to get lazy towards my blog once i take a break and trying to get in some reading but with this exams I’m not so sure and also trying out contentment instead of comparing my life to others ….it’s crazy🙄🙄
    This was a nice post …loved reading it babe

    1. Thank you girly! Exams literally ruin your life don’t they !! Spare time ?? Don’t know her. It’ll all be worth it when they’re over though, I’m sure you’ll do amazing. Comparing myself and my life to others’ is something I’ve struggled with ever since I can remember, haven’t quite gotten around to fixing it yet…if you find a solution let me know !! Hope you’re well lovely xxx
