Time of Death

Hello loves, how are you all? I realised it has been a while since I’ve posted a short story, and since I recently finished writing one a couple of weeks ago, I thought I would share it wth you! ‘Time of Death’ revolves around the idea of a premeditated or ‘perfect’ murder and follows the story of an odd couple who bare dark secrets…Hope you enjoy it and let me know your thoughts in the comments! Happy reading…


Time of Death

“Drink up love,” chirped the sweet voice of Dr Marjorie Reign as she offered her husband a small vile of clear, sticky liquid.  Mr and Mrs Reign lived the sweet life, residing in a heritage property that had been in William’s family for over a century. Mr Reign was a good man, generous, kind hearted and immensely wealthy – part of the reason Marjorie married him. While Will was a gentleman, Marjorie was witty, witty enough to be one of the leading surgeons in the small town where the couple lived. It was an odd marriage with William being twenty-three years older than Marjorie, but age never got in the way of their happiness, despite the speculations of other people. Read More

The Blogger Recognition Award!

Hi loves, Shreya here! Hope you are all having a brilliant week so far:) Around two months ago, I was nominated by the lovely Hanna for this award/tag! As of a couple days ago, I have officially been blogging for one year! That’s right, this blog is now a year old and I couldn’t think of a better time to accept and recognise this award! So, thank you again to Hanna for nominating me…please go check out her blog! I guarantee you will enjoy it as much as I do! Now, onto this award!


Rules:

1. Write a post to show your award.
2. Acknowledge the blogger that nominated you.
3. Give a brief story about how you got started blogging.
4. Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.
5. Nominate 15 bloggers for the award.

Ooh ok…how did I start blogging? Picture this. Before September last year, I would basically spend a good 30 minutes frantically writing in my journal about absolutely everything that I wanted to say to people, change in the world and speak out about. Just as fulfilling writing in my journal was, I really wanted to express at least a small part of my thoughts to people who agreed with me, disagreed with me or were anywhere in between. I wanted to create my own little corner on the internet to express my thoughts and feelings as well as share snippets of my life with fellow bloggers! So to answer your question, I started blogging because I wanted my thoughts and ideas to be heard while remaining pretty anonymous, while connecting with other people who have similar interests to me:)

Now that I have been blogging for a year, I guess I know a little bit about it? I’m far from being an expert of the blogging world but I do know a couple of things to always remember while blogging

Followers don’t matter! The number of readers never defines how good or not so good your blog content is! Don’t let the number affect your post choices because at the end of the day, quality is better than quantity:)

Stay true to your ideas about your blog – it’s your space. I really think that this is an important practise in the world of blogging because I feel like society is affecting our decisions so much these days, that it is important to make sure the content on your blog represents the ideas that you believe in! Authenticity is key! Show the world the you that YOU want to be, and don’t let the comments completely rule your post ideas:)

I nominate:

So that’s a wrap on this award! Hope y’all have a great week and keep your eyes open for future posts coming very soon! I am forever grateful to those of you who stop by to read my blog…it means more than the world! Love you guys<3

Oatmeal with Raspberries + Cinnamon

Hello my lovely blogger friends…guess who’s back?! I think I owe you an apology for the last two months that I have basically been a dormant volcano. I am so sorry! I’ve just been so busy with school and exams and the million extra curricular activities that I happen to be involved in, which has left me no time to blog…how depressing right?? I’ve basically been sleeping every minute that I’m not studying or singing or playing an instrument, but now that I am on holidays, I promise to be more active:)

So…I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite breakfast ideas that I have been making basically everyday for the two weeks – oatmeal! I was never a huge fan of oatmeal because I found it too heavy and clumpy to eat that early in the morning but since I’ve discovered how to make it more light and fresh, I’ve been in love! So without further ado, here is my favourite oatmeal recipe! It’s pretty much self explanatory but it tastes really good so I was like…just post it :)

Ingredients:

  • Your favourite kind of oatmeal (I like to you the ‘Quick’ ones just to speed things up!)
  • Raspberries (I use frozen raspberries because they are inexpensive and can be easily stored)
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Honey

 

Method:

  1. Prepare your oatmeal using the directions on the package. I like to make about 1/5 cup of oats and use lite milk while microwaving:)
  2. Decorate your oatmeal with your raspberries, cinnamon and a drizzle of honey and enjoy straight away!

Tip: I like to prepare my oats the night before so I don’t have to wake up earlier to make them! Then, I just add a little milk or water in the morning before adding my toppings:)

And there you have it- easier than making toast, and so much healthier! Oatmeal keeps me full for a while until lunch and is great for when you are on the go:) Let me know of you try out this recipe and let me know your favourite way to spice up oatmeal!

Love and warm hugs,

Signing off,

Shreya xx
