5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

Shelfie | www.hannahemilylane.com
I haven't yet done one of these posts this year, and I love writing them, so I thought I’d fill you in on some of the things I’m currently obsessing over.

My life got a bit crazy recently when I had 3 deadlines all within a couple of weeks of each other, and stress hit me hard. I’ve also been pretty ill since the start of term with a horrible cold that I've only just managed to get over, so January wasn’t the best of months, but I still managed to find things that boosted my mood.

The easy way to draw mandalas

It always upsets me a little when people apologise for not posting on their blog because they've had a lot going on: you shouldn't need to say sorry really, but I'm going to say it anyway. I'm in my final year of university and I've had a lot of deadlines recently, so I had to take a step back from blogging to focus on my degree. I just had a bit too much on my plate and unfortunately blogging was the thing I had to sacrifice, but I'm not ready to give up my little corner of the internet just yet, so thanks for sticking around!


I've been doing a lot of art lately to keep me sane and help relax as stress really affects me. One of my favourite things to do is draw mandalas and I've tried numerous ways, watched a few tutorials and experimented a lot. I've finally found a way to draw a perfectly neat and beautiful mandala which is so simple I thought I would share on my blog. If you try this method out, please let me know as I'd love to see how you get on with it!
