Hi, I'm Nellwyn!

The Cardinal Press is a lifestyle blog about living beautifully and creatively, every day.

Life, Lately - Vol. 2

Life, Lately - Vol. 2

As you've probably noticed, I took a little blog vacation this past week. To celebrate my birthday and Canada Day, I unplugged my computer and headed out to the countryside. It was an amazing and relaxing break from the internet and social media, but now that I'm back to reality I thought I would kick things off with a little life update.

Reading: You may remember that I put Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay on my reading list way back in February. Well, I didn't like it and never finished it. Now though I've picked it up again because I am determined to make it all the way through. I'm thinking about doing a book review on the blog for this one because I'm curious to hear what other people think of it. Have any of you read it?

Watching: To be honest I'm not watching much these days because I'm spending as much time as possible outdoors. A couple weeks ago I watched a quirky rom-com on Netflix called "Maggie's Plan" that I really enjoyed and I'm looking forward to seeing The Beguiled but I'm waiting for a rainy day!

Listening To: I went and saw Beautiful: The Carole King Musical this week and am now obsessed with her music! I had no idea she wrote so many of my favourite songs and now I've got her entire discography playing on repeat on my Spotify.

Working On: Would you believe me if I said I was revising my book proposal again? Well, it's true. I'm really hoping this will be the last round of revisions, but I also don't want to submit it until it's perfect. So back and forth I go...

Dreaming Of: Going back to the countryside! I miss taking long walks along the river, reading in the garden, and playing badminton until my arms are sore. Even though I live in a lovely part of the city, there is nothing quite like the countryside in summertime.

How is your summer so far? What are you dreaming of this season?
