April showers bring May flowers… & accomplished goals?

The sun is shining and it’s warm enough to go swimming (25°C/77°F)! The weather keeps going back and forth from super warm to cold and rainy. I’m not complaining because it is April after all which means spring rain showers. I didn’t realize until I wrote “April showers” on my image above that there is […]






Getting to know me even better + a few lovely blogs

Around a month ago, I received the One Lovely Blog Award from the lovely Laloofah of Mehitable Days. I had just posted my Stylish Blogger Award so I didn’t want to overwhelm you with awards and TMI about me and so on, but it’s about time I brought this up! I was so happy because […]






I finally have an ‘about me’ page

I finally made an ‘about me‘ page! I had been waiting for the weather to warm up to get a recent and decent picture of myself. As you can see, I had a bunch of fun taking these photos. So for anyone who is interested, just click the image above and read all about me. […]






Orchid in bloom + fasting

This beauty has been blooming since late February and is now absolutely stunning. At first I was worried it wouldn’t have another life in it, but as you can see, it’s full of life! On some days it would be snowing outside and indoors I had this loveliness to gaze upon. Right now there are […]






Find out more about me + 10 great blogs!

Last week I got the Stylish Blogger Award from Melissa who contacted me not too long ago about her eco-clothing site, Ecolissa. Speaking of… you can still get a 20% off discount! Thank you for the award, Melissa! One of the first things I did when I got the award was to look up its […]






How it’s going…

Do you ever get so wrapped up in one project that you neglect the other just as important or even more important ones? I absolutely love Four Leaf Clover and I’m so happy that I decided to start a blog after many years of consideration. The only problem is that I’m spending so much time […]






Where oh where shall I go? Help, please!

How do you like my map? Ha! This is a map I roughly made of the countries I’m interested in studying here in Europe. There are other continents I’d also love to include like Australia and North America, but it’s definitely much cheaper to go to school here. I’ve mentioned what I’d like to study […]






Such an idealist

I don’t know if it’s because of my weekend break, or the weather that makes it feel like the first day of spring, or my changes on here (notice the leaves that have scattered throughout my Four Leaf Clover?), but I am feeling a bit weird and overwhelmed today. Taking a break leaves you so […]






Life tip #3: Write

I am a writer. I’m posting this half as a self-reminder and half as a life tip. I started writing a book when I was 12, but by some accident, my brothers deleted it. I was so upset and just gave up on it. Five years later I had to complete a senior project in […]






Goodbye fulfilling January & hello February full of hope

January was a fantastic month mostly thanks to all of you! This year has started off great! I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since I read my first book and realized there were people who did the writing. I wrote quite a few masterpieces in my elementary school days. Okay, I’m kidding, but I’m […]
