A Book Review: The Midnight Library

Welcome to my ‘Dannika Writes… A Book Review‘ series! ๐Ÿ™‚ As a writer, I have a natural affinity with words. So, it makes sense that I enjoy reading the literary creations of others, too.

Reflection

Hi, I hope you’re having a lovely week ๐Ÿ™‚ After seeing so many wonderful posts about body positivity lately, I’ve decided to add to the positive vibes currently sweeping through the ether, by writing my views on portrait photography. Coronavirus lockdown restrictions have caused many of us to spend considerably more time than usual scrollingContinue reading “Reflection”

Long Time, No See!

Heyy, Long time, no see – 3 months, to be exact o.O I’m always apologising for being busy, though this time, I’m not going to.

‘That’ Interview

Hi Everyone, hope you are well ๐Ÿ™‚ So, I have decided to incorporate a social media post I wrote into blog post form, in case someone who doesn’t follow my social media accounts might find it helpful… Rarely does a news story interest me enough to comment upon, though Harry and Meghan’s interview with OprahContinue reading “‘That’ Interview”

Moment.

Heyy, I suppose this is a bizarre way to find out whether those close to me read my blog; if you’re a relative or friend of mine ‘in real life’, I’m so sorry you’re discovering this experience here – though please know that I chose not to tell you because I believed that you didn’tContinue reading “Moment.”

Happy St David’s Day!

For 10th September

As I write, at this very moment, I have absolutely no idea where this post will lead… I’m not sure how much you know of me, so as a brief recap: I was in a toxic relationship for five and a half years, married on 10th September 2016, left him on 20th July 2018 whenContinue reading “For 10th September”

On the Importance of Self-Care

Heyy, hope you’re well ๐Ÿ™‚ Self-care sounds so indulgent, like it’s some sort of ethereal gift allowed only on special occasions – well, that’s what it seems to me anyway. I take care of my personal hygiene (perhaps a little too much, given my OCD for cleanliness), exercise, eat as healthily as I can andContinue reading “On the Importance of Self-Care”

About Inspiration & Silliness

Two words unlikely to appear in the same sentence, yet have a fascinating connection, are ‘inspiration’ and ‘silliness’. When we feel inspired it’s supposed to move us, to motivate us, to keep us moving forward in our lives. Whereas silliness seems to have little substance in adult life, apart from acceptance on television or duringContinue reading “About Inspiration & Silliness”
