My super sassy and witty friend, Tammy-Louise Wilkins is sharing something very special today.  I am so excited for her and for you guys to read what’s keeping her busy lately and what is something new on her awesome blog.

Tammy is a blogger and the author of My Intimate Poetry: Beneath The Vin Rogue – a beautiful collection of poetry from a very talented lady.

Hello lovely readers of Bookish Temptations! Can you believe this doll of a blog is celebrating its third birthday? It’s incredible how time flies when you’re having a ball.

I am very happy to be a part of this celebration and upon the request of Bookish’s very own contributor, Gel, I shall be playing quaint game of catch up about my books, blog and shop, over a pot of tea.

This year has been and continues to be my busiest year yet as a blogger and author. The ball started rolling with the release of my second poetry anthology, My Intimate Poetry: Beneath the Vin Rouge and hasn’t stopped rolling since.

Soon after the publication, I was approached with a terribly exciting project for my poetry collections that will be revealed very soon. As this project has been at the top of my to-do list, my novel, Temptation Bites, has taken a backseat for the time being.

The blog has been doing splendidly this year also. I was lucky enough to be nominated for Best Lifestyle Blogger in the annual Cosmopolitan Blog Awards which was quite a shock! I may not have made it to the final round but the experience was just divine.

It has been a thrilling year for my blog. Dipping my toes into the world of fashion blogging has led to amazing collaborations with brands that will be released next year. Featuring brands and people on my blog has become quite a regular occurrence and I absolutely love it!

The most exciting project of the year yet is something I’ve been working rather hard on all year…my very own online shop! In a week or so, my elusively mentioned online shop will be up and running and I am offering two lucky readers to sample one of the collections before the release. 


The shop will be completely hand crafted products, whether that be physical or digital, featuring three collections of personalized and illustrated cards, blog template designs, and quotation pieces (the latter are still in progress however.) Since we are celebrating Bookish’s anniversary, I would like to give two lucky readers the chance to have an exclusive look at the collection!

Couture Card Collection
Strikingly quirky illustrations with a personal touch.

Known for her strikingly quirky illustrations, the Live. Love. Laugh. Girl. has released a small collection of personalized card featuring works personally taken out of her sketch book. All cards will be personally customized by her upon request.

Delectable Designs
Giving bloggers an innovative look.

Having cultivated so much interest with her background in web design and structure, the Live. Love. Laugh. Girl. will be selling templates tailored for fellow bloggers who either need a revamp or wish to start afresh.

AWESOME and CONGRATULATIONS Tammy on your new shop!!! I can’t wait to see it. Thank you so much for taking the time to celebrate with us!
