Do you have any tips? Leave them in a comment, por favor. :)


  1. I love these Sophie - especially #12 and #19!

  2. Don't take yourself too seriously. Remember everyone is going through hard times too!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I love all these!

  3. Lovelovelove! And that first picture. gah. its awesome.
    hmm..i like Lacey's tip, its always a really good habit to remember that somewhere else, there's someone hurting too, and probably more than you.

    I sent you a message through blogger, I'm not sure if it will go through to your e-mail or what, you might find it when you click on your #of followers in your dashboard, at least thats how i've discovered messages sent to me through blogger:)

    1. Ello, unfortunately, i tried looking through my followers to retrieve the message and none came up? I also didn't get one through my e-mail. :/ However, if you would like to e-mail me i can try sending it to you through blogger?

    2. Hmm. odd, you can just e-mail me at instead, i have a question for you :)

    3. I will definitely do that. :) I'm a bit busy today so i might not be able to write you until tomorow or tonight because right now i don't have access to my email.

  4. Love all these tips :) Happy new year!


  5. love these, especially the book one. I want to have a collection of all my favorite books!

  6. I LOVE this! I actually was having a little bit of a hard time a few minutes ago but I thought your blog may lend some advice when most everyone was asleep for the night. And it was a Godsend of a post.

    #3 really stood out to me. There's a letter I want to write to someone and I've been absolutely terrified, to the pont that it didn't seem feasible at all. But I'm starting to think that the real terrifying thing would be to let the chance pass me by. Sometimes in life we have to jump off the diving board, not knowing how perfect the landing will look. It may be embarrassing, and the outcome might not be what we'd like, but never knowing would be worse. I'm still not sure what I'll do, but this has definitely made me think about it again. Thank you so much, Sophie. <3

    1. Aw! I'm so happy to hear that. I'm sorry you were having a hard time though:(

      On your letter writing thing, I know you weren't asking my advice, but I think you should do it. I mean, what's the worst that can happen? I think you shouldn't let chances pass by because you'll wish you had done them when its too late. I wrote a letter to a guy who I was on the fence writing about. it was someone I had lost touch with for a while but felt bad about losing touch with. So, I wrote him a letter and an apology even though I wasn't sure if I should have just let the way things are be. You know? Well, he never wrote back. But I still am glad that I sent it because otherwise I would keep wondering if I should send it. And nonetheless, I feel better that I did that and made an effort even if it didn't change anything, it changed the way I feel.

      Thank you for your lovely comment<3 it made my morning:) And I wish you luck on whichever you decide on and a better day today:)

    2. You have no idea how much I needed your advice. :)

      I know that had to have been hard on you, but I'm so glad you found peace. <3

      You're right, no matter what happens it'll be better than wishing I had written it. I'm doing it for both me and him, but if it doesn't affect him, it definitely will me. So, I'll just have to hold my breath when I put it into my mail box.

      Thank you again. This has meant *so* much to me. :)
