Welcome to my little blog, Tranquil Dreams. If you are interested in something more along creative writing and certain features here from the early years of this blog, you can head over to my newly revamped in 2016 blog, Avenue of Daydreams. My main focus still stays here but feel free to check it out if that intrigues you.
Why Tranquil Dreams?
Tranquil Dreams comes from the translation of my chinese name. Life is about dreams and reaching for things that make you happy. I love to learn about life and staying positive. I hope to keep a blog that’s not only about the random things in life but also having a twist of how even when things aren’t too great, there’s always a positive side to it. After all, everything happens for a reason, n’est-ce pas? My goal is to stay positive!
Essentially, thats what I blog about: my passions, interests and what may potentially fuel my dreams into what may be something more in the future as I work hard to polish my skills 🙂
What to look forward to?
To the new visitors, in 2016, expect to find movie reviews from new and old releases mixed with marathons and film festivals. There will be cooking and baking: this year’s focus is on healthier choices and more lactose-free and/or gluten-free options. Also, the highlight is the continuation of a creative cupcakes project to liven things up called Baking Through Disney.
Also, you’ll find personal posts on my adventures and some local Montreal events coverage along with travel pieces, Music Obsessions and Pinterest Therapy. Furthermore, there will be book reviews as I read towards my goal of 20 books for Goodreads’ 2016 Reading Challenge. This year’s focus is a long term project started in 2015 to read through Classics called The Classics Adventure and special focus on the independent writers and their novels. The new addition is a focus on movies adapted into movies, however, it is not restricted to those choices.
One change here is that my photography will be limited to Weekly Adventures, event coverage and Travel posts mostly. The photo challenges from previous years remain on the blog however, the main photography focus will be moved to Avenue of Daydreams. This way, Tranquil Dreams is more of a lifestyle blog whereas the complimentary Avenue of Daydreams is more of a creative outlet.
*Just to add a little disclaimer, Photography, baking, travel will feature my own photos however, all the movie review posters and screenshots along with book covers are found either on Goodreads or Google Images. If anyone would like me to take it down, please advise me and I will do so.
If you have any books and/or movies to recommend, please feel free to do so!
