OH HAI. I'm Daphne and I've been writing this blog since 2013. 

Well, I call it a blog but it's really just me writing about how I throw money at beautiful things, ooh and ahh over the product, and crying over my bank account. About 95.7% of my posts will either be on makeup, stationary, art, or lifestyle topics. On the rare occasion, there will be posts on serious issues.

Ramblings are a common occurrence but I'll try to control my run-on sentences.

I started calligraphy and handlettering as a stress-management-method-slash-creative-outlet in 2016, I expanded to botanical line drawings in 2017, before dipping my toes in watercolour in 2018. You can find most of my work on my Instagram (@coffeescribbles_). I also have some designs up on Society6 and Casetify, FYI.
