    Heartwood | Reflections

    Hi guys! Isn’t it just a fact that while us writers like to write, we sort of… like talking about writing even more? And especially our own writing. At least it’s true for me, which is why even as I start a new story, I’m rubbing lil hands thinking of the time when I can do reflections because it’s my excuse to blab about my own writing for a bit. So, that’s what this post is. I like to reflect on a story after I’m done – how the story evolved over time, what I liked, and what I’m not as happy with. I like to do this for me,…

    Download | Cayenne Top

    Today, I bring you… yet another top! I keep saying on tumblr not to follow me for the sake of custom content but it’s starting to feel like that’s just a sham and maybe don’t follow me for stories, I guess. At least following me for CC actually pays off lately. My silliness aside, though, I do think this is one of my better tops. It’s a cute turtleneck blouse with a ribbed texture and balloon-ish sleeves. Let’s take a look at it.
