About Me

Home » About Me


I’m Ashley, the person behind the books. I’ve always been an avid reader and my favourite genre is mystery/thriller. I also love journaling, and I’ve had a journal since I could learn to write!

I want to share my joy of books and journaling to you! Enjoy all the book recommendations and journal prompts!

how I got here

I grew up baking every Sunday alongside my mom. It was expected that we would bake for holidays, parties and picnics. I always felt joy when someone enjoyed my baking!

I am a self-taught baker, learning in the family kitchen and challenging myself with different recipes. In high school, I took a couple of hospitality (baking and cooking) courses but I never pursued baking professionally.

In March 2021, I did “pandemic baking” and needed a space to share my baking with friends and family. I started a baking Instagram page. Very shortly I discovered the world of food blogging and I instantly knew this is something I wanted to pursue. 

changing niches

In 2023, I stopped sharing my baking and focused on doing taste tests on YouTube. I always wanted to be on YouTube – I grew up watching YouTube videos! I spent a couple of months doing taste tests but something wasn’t clicking for me

2024 is here

Changing niches is hard, especially when they were quite different from each other! But I throughly enjoy reading and journaling every day. I changed my niche so I can discuss other topics that I find interesting and I want to share that with other people who enjoy similar topics! This blog is still very much in progress, and I am learning about blogging every day!
