Happy new year. I hope your year is going well… all 9 days.
So, I think it’s time to reintroduce Books, Baby and Back. What started as a place for me to share has become a part of my life unto itself. Firstly, the blog has gotten a makeover. She scrubs up well don’t you think? I like to think of my blog as a she because well, it’s an extension of some of my most personal moments.
When I started thinking about BBB I wrote a post on Instagram where I said: “After we have our girl I’m going to make a series of posts whether it be a blog or vlog. I can’t commit to more than around 10 (I’m rubbish at sticking to things), but we’ll see.”
Next month my (other) little baby: this blog turns one. I cannot believe that its gone from strength to strength. The community that I have found through sharing my writing and honesty has become pivotal to how much I have learnt. Watching this blog grow for me has been a personal triumph. I will continue to be open to whatever may come of this platform, seeing as “around 10” posts turned into nearly triple that.
A new feature of Books, Baby and Back is that there’s now a shop. Printed locally here in London. For the time being there are 5 prints on sale and all are customisable free of charge. I hope you like having a look at them and deciding where they’ll hang. I’m also offering a commission print service please contact me if you’d like more info. You can find the prints by clicking here.
A bit more about the new year is that it means my birthday is soon. This year I feel will be a good one, I always look forward to getting a year older. Yes, I know I maybe wishing my youth back in many years. For now though, a year older is a year wiser (that’s the idea anyway or maybe I just love a good celebration).
My motto for the year ahead is no excuses. Of course, I’ll still try and make some but my level of productivity will need to match my objectives. I have 3 months left of university too and then I’m off on summer holidays with Sanaa. Which I’ve hardly any plans for except one big one.
Save the date: Tuesday 12th of June 2018.
I’M HAVING AN EXHIBITION!!!
I decided a few weeks ago that this digital age we’re in has repelled the physical aspect of being a writer slightly. So, I’m bringing it back for one fun evening, it also gives me a chance to share some new work with you all. Once tickets are on sale I shall let you all know.
You have all been so kind and supportive of my BBB journey and I can’t say thank you enough. It’s been a great start to the New Year so onwards and upwards from here.
Don’t forget to check out the prints.
Take Care Remi x
