Monday Muse (5)

Hey fam! Happy Monday! Or something - are Mondays ever really happy? Let's change that! Today I'm sharing another Monday Muse post, which features my hobbies other than reading.

I have made some coloring progress in my 17-18 Johanna Basford planner! I really need to buy the 18-19 one, since it runs from Sept. '18 to Dec. '19.

The one above is one of my favorites! It wasn't too detailed so it was easy to color.

This one above is so pretty. It was a little more detailed but not to the point of being tedious. I experimented with a few colors I hadn't used before and really liked how everything turned out!

In music, I am OBSESSED with two OneRepublic songs. These songs were released almost two years ago so they're nothing new, but they're new to me and I LOVE them. I love OneRepublic and am familiar with most of their songs so I was surprised to see that they released an entire album in December 2016 and I'd had no idea. #epicfail

I ACTUALLY READ A BOOK! And I reviewed it! And I LOVED it! The Maiden's Defender is a book I bought a few weeks ago - it was on sale for $0.99 and I couldn't pass it up. I loved the cover and I'm obsessed with the warrior/maiden trope. The story was beautiful and romantic and perfect!

I'll leave you with Friday's sunrise!


  1. Your planner coloring pages have lovely pop to them.
    Yay that you read a recent purchase. I need to do that with a few I got, too.
    Lovely sunrise!

    Happy Monday, Alyssa!

  2. The part where you said, "I actually read a book and reviewed it" xD. I honestly feel this so hard right now. It seems like a lot of people are in a bit of a slump, including myself.

    Your coloring pages are beautiful!

    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Love your coloring pages! I need to try and color more, but sometimes there really is a bit too much detail, it feels tedious. haha


  4. Ohh, yay for coloring more and listening to music :D I have music on for so many hours each day, it's a must. <3 Love all your coloring :D


I love comments! I will always try and reply to your comments, as well as leave some comment love on your blog! :)

Also, this an award and tag free blog. While I am flattered that you would think of me, I really do not have the time to follow up. Thank you!
