Booktuber Recommendations: 10 Great Booktubers

Booktube is a great space to hear other book lovers gush about their favorite books or explain why they didn’t enjoy certain ones. Personally, I enjoy watching booktube to get recommendations on books and to hear thoughts on books I want to read. Of course, what Booktuber channels you enjoy will greatly depend on the kind of books you like to read. For example, some channels have high quality videos but are focused on romance or YA contemporary novels – genres I’m not into.

Favorite Nail Polishes for Spring 2020

Favorite nail polishes for spring

Nail polish! One of my favorite things to do is paint my nails. But moving to Spain meant leaving behind most of my 100+ nail polishes for a select few. However, I have a list of every polish I own and compiled a list of my favorite nail polishes for spring 2020. I preface every one of these posts by saying I am not a seasonal nail polish wearer. I wear what I want when I want. Right now I’m wearing It’s Alive by China Glaze, a Halloween shade! Still, I know what colors many people gravitate to during this time and put together my list of favorites.

So if you’re interest in my nail polish spring 2020 picks, keep on reading.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Keeping Busy During Quarantine

Previously I mentioned how it was like living in Europe (specifically Spain) during the Coronavirus 2019 outbreak. The Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a pandemic that is the talk all around the world. It’d be a challenge to turn on the TV or open up social media without hearing about it. The state of this situation literally changes everyday. But as I’m writing this, I am at home as with the majority of the country for at least two weeks. The Coronavirus quarantine situation is different in every country.

Countries around the world are taking similar precautions, or already have. In Italy, where the outbreak first peaked in Europe, had a quarantine even stricter than that of Spain’s. Whether you’re in a quarantine, lockdown or just suggested to stay home, I thought I’d share what I am doing with this downtime. If you’re interested in how to keep busy during this time, keep on reading.

This is such a weird time for the world, isn’t it? According to WHO, the Coronavirus is now considered a pandemic.
