52 Quaintrelle Blog Post Prompts/Challenges


Ciao lovelies! I’m finding that recently I’m filled with so much energy and vigor for life! Even though I have quite a lot going on, I’m really excited about all of it! I think this is very much due to the fact that I am finding so much joy in returning to the Quaintrelle Lifestyle. I hope you all don’t mind that I have been posting about it so much! It just brings me such joy. Today’s post goes right along with this theme, as I want to share the Quaintrelle Lifestyle community that I created on DreamWidth and provide a list of 52 prompts (one per week for one year) for any other Quaintrelle bloggers to use as they would wish!


To begin, if you are confused on what the Quaintrelle Lifestyle is, please read my post on “What is a Quaintrelle?”


So in that post, I discussed making a community for Quaintrelles where we could chat and share! Well I have created a rough framework for this community on DreamWidth.

Please consider joining the online Quaintrelle Lifestyle community!


And now, for the long part of this post! I wrote up a list of 52 Quaintrelle Blog Post Prompts/Challenges. One post per week for a whole year! Of course, you don’t have to space them out that way, and you certainly don’t have to write them in order. These are just a bank of prompts for your use on any blog you so choose. You can even answer them on the Quaintrelle Lifestyle community!

Without further ado, here are the prompts!


52 Quaintrelle Blog Post Prompts/Challenges

  15. Share on your blog a recent lesson you have learned about life. It can be something small, or something profound; the choice is yours.

  21. What about your life currently do you find particular luxurious? This can be anything, from a designated bubble-bath night, to perhaps a particular snack you’ve been purchasing. Why do you find it luxurious? If you can’t immediately think of anything, I encourage you to really reflect on your daily life here. Something doesn’t need to be monetarily expensive to be lavish/luxurious.
  22. What are you currently grateful for? You can list one, or many, things here. You may also choose to include why you’re grateful for each thing you list.

  28. Share your favorite savory or sweet recipe. You may also choose to talk about why you like the recipe.
  29. Do you keep a journal? If so, talk about your journal a little bit. Do you have it decorated? What sort of things do you write in it?

If you don’t keep a journal, talk about your ideal journal, or talk about why you prefer not to keep a journal (or may not be able to currently).
  30. In what ways do you try to create your own happiness each day? Talk a little about each way you do this, and why it makes you happy.
  31. Do you have a specific skin care routine or product that you use? Talk a little about how you take care of your skin. If you don’t use any product or have any routine, you may choose to talk about why that is, or alternatively, what product you’d like to try but haven’t.

  1. Luna, you've truly outdone yourself with this post. I'm impressed you wrote all the prompts in just 2 days. I really love all of the prompts and I'm definitely going to use them. I'm not sure if I'll do them all on my blog or maybe save half to post on the Dreamwidth journal, I'll need to meditate on that a bit.
    Enjoy your nap!
