I just went back and read all the posts I’ve ever posted on my blog. I have not posted anything for almost a year now. It was really awesome to go back and read everything. It’s crazy how life changes things and perspectives. I’m debating whether I should start blogging again. It really is a good way to document life and get my thoughts organized. I’m not sure if I can stay consistent though. Life is crazy busy lately.
So I have decided to do some posts about some of the products I have been loving lately, particularly skincare. I have been really into natural skincare products and have found some new things that I really love. There are some really good natural products that I have been using on a daily basis, and my skin is looking really good as a result. Also I have been trying some Korean skincare and cosmetics brands. Koreans are known to produce some of the most advanced skincare products. Korean women often pride themselves in having clear complexions, and girls are taught to take care of their skin from a very young age. It is said that the Korean cosmetics industry is a good decade ahead of the U.S. So I have some pretty cool stuff to share with you in the near future. I think I will call this group of posts ” Things I Love.” I will try to present a new post every week.
Until then…I hope everyone has a great day!
Ok, so I have not blogged in a very long time. Mostly it was due to the fact that my computer got a virus and was acting slow and glitchy, thus making blogging tedious. However we just purchased a brand-spanking-new lap top, and I am excited to get back into blogging. I also got a better camera. so hopefully I can take some better pictures too.
I’m thinking of taking a slightly different direction with this blog.. maybe even changing up the front page a bit. We shall see…
Until then.. I just want to say “It’s good to be back!”
I have decided to try a new approach to this blog. I have not really had the time or the inspiration to post lately. The more I think about it, the more I realize that I’ve been trying too hard to be “pretty.” …and I find that I don’t always feel “pretty”… or “inspiring”..for a lack of a better word. Writing has always been an outlet for me. I have stacks of journals at home from about the age of 8 as a testament to this. However, somehow this blog has become a bit of a burden, and I think it is because I am trying too hard to present something that is complete, edited, and beautiful. Yet in all honesty I don’t always feel complete or beautiful, and I particularly don’t always want to feel edited. I guess I want the freedom to ramble, rant, and rave.. and not feel the need to add a pretty photograph. So I have decided to try a more journal style for a month or two and see how I feel about it.
Don’t get me wrong I will still try to post the usual “pretty” and “inspiring” things.. (I have a few projects I have been meaning to show you.) But, I will also give myself the freedom to simply be honest, and down-right gritty if I feel like it. I’m hoping this will ignite my spark for blogging once again, and who knows, maybe I’ll hate it, feel too exposed, and go back to being “pretty.” Yet for now, those of you who still may read this little blog, please humor me, or feel free to skip the “not-so-pretty.”
Note –> After this post, I kept singing “I Feel Pretty, Oh so Pretty, and Witty and Bright…” in my head for like 2 hours… Guess where that’s from?? At first I wanted to blame Mary Poppins, but apparently that song is from West Side Story. Huh!? Who knew??
Today is my 1 year blogging Anniversary! I was 8 months pregnant, staying home, and in need of a diversion. Thus I created my blog. I never imagined I would enjoy it so much. Not only that, I began to discover other people’s blogs. A whole new world opened up to me, a wealth of creative, informative, passionate, and inspired information at my fingertips. Writing for my blog and particularly reading other blogs has become one of my much-loved pastimes.
Thus, I want to say thank you to my readers, and all those that take time to write their own blogs to share pieces of their lives.
