Could this be it?!?! The last and final day of this challenge?
Blogging for this past month has really helped me find who I really am and find my voice!!
I was having a bit of an identity crisis for a few months before this! I found myself in a bit of a creative “rut” that I just couldn’t shake. I wanted to DO STUFF and take pictures and share ecstatic happiness, but I didn’t know where to start so I wasn’t doing ANYTHING. Blogging everyday gave me a place to figure me out and spill my insides (where Twitter and Instagram never quite seemed like the place!) I feel like myself again and am beyond happy!
I created this blog to show the things I create and learn as well as to stay motivated!! But mostly I just want this to be a place to continue to let me be myself, share positivity with others, not worry about what others think this place should be, and most importantly HAVE FUN.
I’m also interested in making FRIENDS! So blogging folks, come say hi! I’d love to visit your blog and meet you. 😀 xoxo
Yesterday was a bit of a crazy day for me!! I ended up catching the earlier bus to work and I was pretty excited that I was starting off the work year off so motivated… and then… my bus got in a crash! Nothing bad and I’m completely okay – as was everyone on the bus and the driver of the other car. I was extra awake after that and even walked the rest of the way to work (bonus fitness!)!
Also my parents are also in town for a few days so I was hanging out with them in the evening – hurray for yummy parent cooked meals! Although finding time to fit in my craft a day is going to be a bit more of a challenge than I thought. I was up past my bedtime last night hardcore glue-gunning pompoms to barrettes, but I’m really determined and loving it! Never felt so relaxed!
Second to last day of the 30 day blog challenge today – A CONFESSION!!! This was the day I was most dreading writing about, because what in the world can I possibly confess?!?! Something deep and dark and mysterious about myself?! Well there’s not much of that!! My whole blog has really been a confession so far!
I guess I could confess that I REALLY embrace being a bit of a weirdo! I really tried for a looong time to fit in with people and just wanted to be invisible, and it felt so dishonest and draining. It took me a long time to get to this place. So I’m very happy now living my bright pink, twirly, ruffly, oh so silly, cat hair covered life and I’m so excited about being like this when I’m 85! Be yourself, it’s the most fun! 😀
I don’t really have ONE thing that I can call my MOST embarrassing moment! But I’m always blushing about something. Usually it’s my gangly clumsiness!
My arms and legs just don’t want to work in a sensible way and are always getting me in trouble. I trip over absolutely everything and somehow am a magnet for stray balls and other objects! One time I was walking past a school on my lunch walk and managed to get a random frisbee in the head… EEK!!! The kids were super apologetic but oh my gosh that was embarrassing! I laughed at it and shrinked away quickly! 😀
I also am good at finding out exactly where the wet floors are in places as well (and missing the signs)! Oops! Fortunately I’ve got good at laughing at myself (and finding the bandaids!)
I’m so excited to share this with you!! I LOVE MY CLOSET. It doesn’t even have a door because I love looking at it so much!
Because it’s completely stuffed to the brim with colour and pretty dresses! I started exclusively wearing dresses about three years ago (it just sort of… happened) and got rid of every remaining piece of black in my wardrobe last year and haven’t looked back!
I mostly wear vintage inspired dresses (with mostly florals, polkadots, and cute yummy prints!) with either long sleeves, or a cardigan on top. And always with colourful tights (I have bins full of them)! My style is strongly influenced by Japanese and kawaii styles, and I have a couple of Lolita dresses (a Japanese clothing style which in turn is inspired by Rococo/Victorian fashion – with ruffles and petticoats and intricate details!) and hope to acquire a few more soon!
Here are some of the outfits that I’ve thrown together (as I mentioned previously, I don’t take all that many selfies, but I’m working on it! Some of my outfits are really fun and I want to show them off)!
One of my 2019 goals is to start sewing my own dresses because sometimes it’s hard to find vintagey things that I really like and having the freedom to wear what I have in my head would be amazing!
My closet also has a ton of hairbows, wigs, scarves, petticoats, piles and piles of cute socks, my novelty bag collection, a shelf full of candy (hahaha! always need it close by!), a spot for all my jewellery, my Hello Kitty hamper, and all my empty boxes for collectables (lots of Sailor Moon proplica boxes and Funkos up there!) There’s pretty much no room at all for anything else (but I will try ;))!
I never lose my childlike sense of wonder! I constantly have a MILLION ideas stuck in my brain just bursting to get out and it keeps me happy and motivated! I like to create my own worlds and scenarios in my head. I used to get in trouble all the time for looking daydreamy and completely out of it- but hey look at how good this is for my life now! I’m like to see myself as a girly Willy Wonka and am just waiting for someone to finance my very own chocolate factory!
I am also super duper flexible and can fit into small boxes, never forget birthdays, and can eat sushi NON-STOP (and I’m more than happy to prove it :D)!
