What was your latest book discovery? What are your favorite books of all time?

The most recent book I read was The Alchemist! It took me a while but I have always been meaning to read it. I also read the Course of Love by Alain De Botton. I wasn't blown away by it but it was fun. I don't have any all time favourites but I really want to read Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins and Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker

Most visited blogs, websites? : 

I love Apartment Therapy. I just moved into a new apartment so have been scouring that site lately.
Reddit I love going on and finding some good life tips, it can be a bit of a time hole though.

What apps do you use the most and why?

I use Instagram quite alot. I find it useful for visual art and ideas. Same thing with reddit though it can be a bit of a time hole. I use Voice Memos and Dropbox for work daily
