Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 2

I’m recapping my dream Disney honeymoon through this blog series! To start from the beginning, check out part 1 here! Day 4- Magic Kingdom I will be honest with you- I am a Disneyland SNOB. I was an annual passholder for 5 years and so the classic Disneyland park is my metric I compare every other Disney park against. Therefore, I’m usually pretty critical of Magic Kingdom because it feels like a much lighter version of Disneyland to me, without a lot of the classic rides. So I was hesitant going to Magic Kingdom this time because it definitely underwhelmed […]

December 2019 Month in Review

Better late than never, am I right? I haven’t done a monthly recap since January 2019 so it seems fitting to finish out the year with one since I started with one, lol. I’m hoping to become a LOT more consistent with these since my life should calm down QUITE A BIT in 2020 and my bestie Lauren taught me a much easier method for making photo collages 😉 This holiday season was a whirlwind since we moved into our new home shortly before Thanksgiving. Since Thanksgiving was also pretty late this year, Christmas really snuck up on us! We […]

Exploring the World of Bullet Journaling: 2020 Reading Bujo [2]

It’s been a while since I did a check in on my bullet journaling life! What a better time to dive back in than to share my bookish spreads for 2020! This year I’m focusing on annual spreads (at least so far) since I have SEVERAL other daily planners at this time. However, I did use some daily trackers last fall and enjoyed them so we’ll see if the urge to start them again in my bujo strikes me! Annual Books Read Graph and Daily Reading Calendar My first spread was pretty much exactly the same as the one I […]


2020 Reading Challenges!

2020 Reading Challenges!

Another year, another blank slate! Every year I start out with the best intentions for challenges, but over time I have learned it’s not realistic for me to participate in too many, as I lose track of them through the year. I always do the Goodreads challenge, but this year have decided to add two more challenges to my plate as well! Goodreads Annual Challenge So I’m apparently feeling super ambitious this year and under the impression I can read 100 books in 2020? I think the most I’ve ever read in one year is 82 so we’ll see how […]


2020 Releases I’m Most Anticipating! (First Half)

2020 Releases I’m Most Anticipating! (First Half)

One of my FAVORITE posts to write and read are posts highlighting new upcoming releases! I know I say this EVERY YEAR but this upcoming year looks like it’s going to have some phenomenal new releases- which is amazing and a testament to how large and diverse the book community is becoming! For 2020, there are actually quite a few adult books that are making my list along with YA, which I hope also helps me keep my reading momentum up, as I find switching up genre and target audience for books can help me from getting into a slump. […]

Monthly TBR Plan: January 2020

I’ve made a lot of reading resolutions, and one of them is to be better about cultivating a monthly TBR. I know so many bloggers do beginning of the month TBR posts and I always LOVE reading them, so I’ve decided to post my own as well! I will include my physical, e-book, and ARC TBRs as well as a status update of where I am prior to starting my upcoming month’s TBR. Reading Progress Prior To This Month: 0/100* Books Read *Wish me luck as I try to read more books in 2020 than ever before! January, the month […]

2019 End of Year Bookish Stats

Welcome to 2020, everyone, where the first week of January is inevitably filled with many, many stats posts that are super fun to read for super Type-A folks like myself (does anyone else find color coordinating graphs soothing)? While 2019 was not my proudest reading year because life seriously happened, I did manage to read 51 books amidst all of the craziness and am excited to share the stats with you all! Target Audience: My stats for Target Audience stayed very similar to last year’s, which I find very interesting! The only difference is I read some books that I […]

Girl in the Pages Best of 2019 | A TTT Post

I can’t believe another year has gone by and it’s time for another “best of” roundup! This year I decided to focus on my top ten reads of the year, and most of these books have 5 star or strong 4 star ratings. These books aren’t all 5 stars because I wanted to focus on the books that really stuck with me regardless of how I rated them! This year almost all of my favorite reads were from 2019, which is a change from last year where I chose a few more back list titles. I also read a lot […]


Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 1

Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 1

As many of you probably know, I recently got married! After a year and a half of planning we had the most wonderful wedding and the Disney Honeymoon of our dreams! It’s no secret that we are huge Disney people, and Disney has played a role in many of our major life moments (we got engaged at Aulani, I had my bachelorette in Disneyland, etc.) So it was really a no-brainer that continuing the Disney tradition for our honeymoon was the right decision for us. We also love Disney vacations because they’re so low stress- everything you want and need […]
