Welcome to my ‘Dannika Writes… A Book Review‘ series! 🙂 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 🙂 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.

On the Importance of Self-Care

Heyy, hope you’re well 🙂 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.
