I’ve been thinking… what’s bringing me joy

I have just re-read through my About page and was reminded that I created this blog to share my interests and to not put myself and my blog in a box. I am so incredibly interested in a lot of things and those things change around a fair bit too. I have said it before,…

Old Fashioned Blogging – A Comeback?

I have been called to write here on the Elegant Daydreamer blog. I have been heavily in “building a business” mindset around some other ventures I am working on, and I suppose I am being pulled back, and drawn back, to the traditional feel of blogging. Let’s face it, social media is getting so noisy.…

I’ve Been Watching… KDrama Rookie Historian

This year has seen me binge watching more television since I watched the first two seasons of Supernatural back in 2005 (or the mini series of Pride and Prejudice), and I don’t think there is any sign of me slowing down. That is because I have discovered K Drama (Korean Drama), and I am hooked…

I’ve been reading… Promise Thief by Lee Evie – book review

I’ve been reading…Promise Season by Lee Evie – a novel set in old Korea

Save energy by listening to that quiet voice inside

Trust that inner pull. You know, that little voice inside of you that says “just try it”? Or “let’s just see what happens”? That little voice is within me all of the time, but sometimes I am pretty good at ignoring her, and sometimes I even feel that maybe she is gone forever.

Are you an INFP?

Hello INFP (or perhaps you are a quiet ENFP? Or maybe you are still trying to work out which one you are?) I see you, and you are awesome! First… let me say, welcome. I have been waiting for you. And… I already know a little bit about you… You are a daydreamer who feels…

A Few of the Things I have Learned About Myself During COVID

In January this year I decided my word of the year was going to “patience”.  Eight months on in one of the wildest years ever, I can now look back and see how important this word was going to be for me. When I think of patience, the image that comes to me is one…

These Times, Family, Connection

I am sitting at my kid’s craft table as I write this blog. A little lost for words and I don’t really know what to write. But I feel I need to write. Today we as parents can choose to keep our children home until the end of term. The schools remain open for now…
