The Autumn Tag

Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great day, I’m a little sick right now but enjoying the timeout and the rest ❤

I always loved to post tags, they are so fun and always makes me happy seeing how other people answer. So, when I saw this cute tag over at Bournemouth Girl and I knew I have to do it. If you don’t know Lauren or her fun blog, go check her blog and don’t forget to say hello 😀

Grab a cup of coffee/tea and let’s start 🙂

1. What signifies the start of Autumn for you?

As soon as October arrives I know that autumn will follow, hehe. The days are becoming shorter and in the evenings there’s a cold breeze, even if the day was hot.

2. What is your favorite Autumn scent?

To be honest I don’t have any autumn specific candles but I do love the smell of cinnamon and vanilla during this time.

3. What is your favorite Autumn color?

I love greys for clothing in Autumn and this year I going to buy a few grey new clothing items, I can’t wait ❤

4. What is your favorite Autumn drink?

I love flavored coffee and tea and of course hot chocolates (come on… who can resist a yummy hot chocolate?).

5. What T.V. show new or old, are you looking forward to this Autumn?

Hmmm, I don’t have a specific TV show for this season, but I love The Good Place, The Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, and I can’t wait to watch Camping (I am looking forward to seeing it) ❤

6. What is your favorite Autumn fashion trend?

I’m very basic with my clothing. I love jeans with my brown boots and a grey or dark simple t-shirt and a jacket. Something like this 😀

7. What is your favorite Autumn activity?

Cozy evenings at home with my husband with a cup of tea, watching a movie together or a TV show ❤

8. What is your favorite make up look in Autumn weather?

I am not wearing much makeup but if I do it’s in the shades of brown or nudes.

9. What is your favorite Autumnal movie?

Omg, I love You’ve Got Mail and Pride and Prejudice.

10. Best way to spend a rainy day?

Wow. A rainy day at home always means writing, lol ❤ A cozy day inside with my laptop, writing, plotting and maybe watch friends, hehe. However, if my husband is at home than curled up under a blanket together watching something or gaming together 😀

What is your favorite Autumn activity?

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

10 Random Generated Questions

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great day ❤

I found this amazing and fun post over at Jenny In Wonderland and I ask her permission to do this post as well and she was so kind to say yes ❤ If you don’t know her blog you must go visit and say hello. You will instantly be in love with her writing and her blog posts that are so informative, fun and inspiring.

As she said in her post, I generated 10 random questions from this site and answered the first 10 questions. I got lucky because question #11 was something I really didn’t like at all. So I got lucky with the first 10, yay 🙂

So let’s start!

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Pizza! Well, gluten and dairy free pizza. Pizza is a very healthy choice 😉

What is your favorite thing about winter?

Omg, the cold air, rain and everything is so clear, beautiful and green.

What would you be doing if you were not here right now?

If I wasn’t blogging right now, I would be writing. I am not procrastinating… I promise.

Do you like to dance or sing?

I love them both. I’ve always love to sing and dance, I am not good at any of them and I sing very off key but I don’t care I still love it.

What is your favorite drink?

Coffee and Coka Cola Zero. Again not a healthy choice.

If you could give one piece of advice to the whole world, what would it be?

Be Kind. Stop being cruel to others just because they look, act or think differently than you, we are all the same.

Are you smarter than your parents?

No. Well… In some areas yes 😀

What is one thing that you would like to change about the world?

Make people understand that kindness is the only thing that truly makes peace and understanding.

Where do you work?

I am a writer (hopefully be a published author <3) and I work from home 😀

Do you keep a journal?

Yes, I have a few types of journals: Dream journal, morning pages, and bujo 🙂

What question would you, like to answer?

If you’re doing this tag, don’t forget to tag Jenny and me so we can see your amazing answers ❤

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

The Writer’s Life Tag

Happy Wednesday everyone  ❤ I hope you are all having a wonderful day.

If you have noticed I’ve changed the theme of my blog, I needed a little change and tweaked it a bit (go spot the changes  ;)). I am so happy with how it came out and I would love to read your thoughts, so don’t be shy to comment below  ❤

For this tag… I saw The Writer’s Life Tag at Kim from Kim Chance on YouTube and I loved it and really wanted to give it a try. So without further ado, let’s start with the tag  😀

Questions

Write-fuel: What do you eat or drink while writing?
Coffee (decaf) and water. I mostly don’t eat anything while writing.

Write-sounds: What do you listen to while writing?
I think I’ve said it here and there, I love (LOVE) the Rainy Mood website. I use it a lot in my writing, but when I write fight scenes, I love listening to heavy metal (yep), gaming music and Kpop 🙂

Write-vice: What is your biggest writing distraction?
Life. When My mom needs me, or something happens to her, my sweet hubby and all the things I need to do around the house, to keep it not looking like a pigsty.

Write-horror: What’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to you while writing?
As most of you know, I’ve lost 10 years of work (3 books) and I never found it (didn’t back it up and cry so much). Don’t forget to back up your work.

Write-joy: What’s the best thing that ever happened to you while writing?
The best ever for me is to be able to sit down and write. But if I don’t count that, then the best feeling I had with writing is typing the words The End. It is the best feeling ever! I also had a wonderful moment when I was all alone in the house, not much to worry about and I wrote 10K a day (it was amazing, just heaven).

Write-crew: Who you communicate with or not communicate with while writing?
Sadly, I don’t have any writing buddies (wish I had). I have a few people I can talk to but I can’t call them writing buddies. One of the goals I have for the next quarter is to find some nice and good writing buddies  ❤

Write-secret: What your secret to success and your biggest writing flaw?
The #1 “secret” for writing, I think it’s determination. I know that things are going slow for me, but never in my life, I wanted to give up. I write when I’m sick, when I’m tired and when I don’t feel like writing. I am left with so little time, that when I finally have the time to write, I just write. I also love planning my work. If I outline the novel or even a scene, I know I will not get lost. Outlining really helps me a lot.
My writing flaw is that I can’t leave a scene or a page if it’s not written the way I want it to be. That is why I edit a lot more than “normal”, lol.

Write-spiration: What inspires you? Or what makes you productive?
I don’t have any special thing that makes me productive. I love to write so much and I barely have a moment to write, so when I do… I just write like a maniac, lol. I try to compensate for days of not writing and write until my fingers are numb.
An inspiration for me is, everywhere. From what I see, a book, a moment that something happens, a voice, you… everything  ❤ However it mostly comes from my weird mind, my dreams and from my over-imaginative mind, lol.

Write-peeve: What is one thing you do or other writers do that’s annoying?
The only thing I can think about is that my mood is related to my writing. If I did well and wrote a lot I am happy, relaxed and almost high, lol. But if I haven’t written anything or the scene I’ve written didn’t go as I wanted, I am very restless and annoyed.
About other writers? I really can’t think of anything. Each writer does what is best for him/her and his/her community  🙂

Write-words: Are you willing to share something you’ve written?
Yes. In the newsletter I’ve sent out yesterday, I added a little teaser of the book I am editing right now ELE and I hope you liked it.

There you have it, a look into my writer’s life  😀

This was such a fun tag to do and I hope you enjoyed reading it  ❤ I will not tag anyone to do this tag, but if you feel like give it try, go for it (you are considered tagged by me) and don’t forget to send a link of your tag my way  🙂

Thank you so much for reading  ❤

Weekly Round Up

coffeennotesweekly

It’s Sunday and today was a very eventful day and the heat was unbearable, I couldn’t be outside for long. I felt as if my entire flesh was burning (sorry for that image, lol). The weekend went by so fast I barely accomplished anything, lol.

Tomorrow I’m planning on going to my mom in the afternoon, and after the video chat I have with my friend, I plan to sit down and write at least 10-15 pages and catch up on some of your awesome blog posts ❤

I hope you had a very relaxing weekend. Sometimes that’s what we all need, some good rest 😀 But for now just take a deep breath, relax with some yummy drink in your hand and check out this week’s posts on Coffee n’ Notes.

The Reader Problems Tag

readertag

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a good day 🙂

Long long time ago, I was tagged by the wonderful Rawls to do this fun tag. Sorry, it took so long to get to it, but I am happy to do it and it was such a fun tag. With everything that is going on in my life, all my tags and challenges were put aside, but I am so glad to be able to do it now.

Thanks again, so much ❤

Q: You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?

I pick my books by the mood I am having at that moment 😉

Sherlock

Q: You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or commit?

I used to force myself to keep on reading but now… If the book just can’t keep me reading, I will stop. It’s sad when it happens, but reading for me is fun and enjoyment and I will not force myself to read something that I can’t connect to. Sometimes I can go back to the book and maybe give it another go, but much later. But mostly this is how I feel when I need to stop…

Q: The end of the year is coming and you’re so close yet so far away on your GoodReads challenge. Do you quit or commit?

I used to be great at reading a lot of books in a month and in a year, but not now. I still try to put some sort of yearly reading goals, in hopes to achieve them… will see 😉

Q: The covers of a series you love DO. NOT. MATCH. How do you cope?

It’s horrible and I hate when they do that. WHY? Why do they do this to me?

Q: Everyone and their mother love a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?

I would blog about it or just share a short review on Goodreads and read other Goodreads reviews of 1-2 stars, lol.

Q: You’re reading a book and you’re about start crying in public. How do you deal?

I never read outside, as I hate taking my beauties out, lol.

Q: A sequel of a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a summary on GoodReads? Cry in frustration?

I love re-reading my books. When a sequel is coming out I will start re-reading the first book and continue with the next one.

Q: You don’t want ANYONE borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people “nope” when they ask?

Everyone in my life knows well not to even ask me for a book because I’m not giving. If someone will ask, I will bluntly say No! I love my shiny book to stay pretty and perfect (I know I’m a bit too obsessive, but I don’t care)  ❤

Q: You’ve picked up and put down five different books in the past month. How do you get over the reading slump?

I recently got into a reading slump and what helps me a lot is to read a few books at a time, this way I do not bored easily and I get to enjoy many stories at once, lol.

Q: There are so many new books coming out that you are dying to read! How many do you actually buy?

I wish I could buy all the books, lol. Sadly with the low budget I have, I can buy very little (about 2 to 5 new books a year).

Q: After you’ve bought a new book you want to get to, how long do they sit on your shelf until you actually read them?

I read it at the same day I bought it. I have very few books that “just sit” on my shelf. I currently have a bit over 500 books and I didn’t read about 10 books or less, lol. As soon as buy I must start reading it and if it’s that good, I will finish it that same day or a day after 😀


Wow, that is all of this tag. Some of the questions were hard to answer but still had fun answering them 🙂 Feel free to answer on some (or all) of the question in comments below or even give this tag a try.

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Weekly Round Up

coffeennotesweekly

Amazing Sunday to you all ❤

How is your day so far? I hope it was well and by any chance it was hard there is always tomorrow, right? 😀

This week I was still trying to shake this sore throat, sadly without success. I do feel much better and I have more energies than the week before that, but this sore throat just won’t go away, lol.

Today I was with my mom (she is still not feeling very well) and I helped her clean her closet and room, then I came home with all the intentions of cleaning and organizing, but instead I just rested, lol (It felt so good but with a hint of guilt – as always, lol). This week is going to be super hectic (what’s new?), but I hope it will be productive as well 😀

Here’s a quick round-up of the posts that have been featuring on Coffee n’ Notes this past week

So onto the Tags and Awards post 😀

I have multiple Tags and Awards that continued to gather in my drafts folder. I truly meant to do and post them, but I couldn’t find the right time.

I will start by saying again a huge and massive THANK YOU to all that nominated me and a very sad sorry for not being able to do them.

A book that you bought because of the cover?
