Confession time – it’s been a minute (read: an embarrassing couple of months ) since I’ve picked up and read a good ol’ fashion book. I come from a family of avid readers and have always loved the whole ritual of curling up with a good back at the end of the day OR you know that feeling when you are absolutely hooked on a book and you try sneak in a couple of pages of reading early in the morning before going to work… :) Anyway, over the last couple of months, after a long day at work the most I can manage is binge watching YouTube videos – a mix of random videos and content by vloggers I’ve subscribed to (oh hey gurrl Shameless Maya). So I know the year’s almost over but there’s no better time than the present to start a daily routine where I put time aside each evening like 30-45mins to switch off from all digital devices and nurture my brain. A couple of weeks ago I picked up a few books from a local second-hand bookstore at the Dubai Garden Centre. There’s just something I love about worn/pre-loved books :) Next step, as the weather continues to sloooowly gets cooler (as per Dubai standards) I’m thinking of creating a cozy reading nook to help me commit to my new daily goal. Below are a few #designinspo images I’ve bookmarked. Will share an update on how this goes. xo!
