May Monthly Round-Up

Today I want to start the tradition of publishing a monthly round-up blog post at the end of each month. I’ve seen other bloggers do these weekly and monthly recap posts (especially Styled by McKenz—if you don’t follow her, you should!), and I love the journal-like vibe of them. Not to mention, I’m not the best at setting short-term goals. I always have the big ideas swirling in my head but have a much harder time breaking them down to smaller, more manageable chunks and timeframes. Hopefully these monthly posts help me do just that, as well as allow me to share what has inspired, entertained, and interested me during this past month. Here we go!

Yesterday, I lacked the time (and all motivation) to take blog photos, so I decided to dig into the archives and find some funny blooper pictures to post instead—it’s been a hot minute (as the kids say) since I last shared a blooper post! I love to do this every once and awhile to show some “realness” because trust me, the majority of the photos I take are not good. And given that students are extremely stressed this time of year with midterms/finals before spring break (depending on if you have a traditional semester system or a quarter system, like me), I figured, why not caption all of the blooper photos with college-related stressors? I got the idea from Meghan at butterflyempire.com. She always posts blooper photos on her Instagram stories and lets her followers come up with funny captions—such a good idea! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post, especially if you’re a stressed out college student like me. Continue reading “Bloopers and A College ‘Mood’”

When Fashion Blogging Turns Dangerous

Okay okay, you’re right, using the word ‘dangerous’ to describe fashion blogging is probably an exaggeration. But life would be a little boring without at least some exaggeration, don’t you think? As my dad always says, “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.” And today’s ‘story’ is showing you that fashion blogging isn’t always all fun and games. (Hard to believe, I know, since all you have to do is throw on a cute outfit and prance around in front of a camera—right?) Here are ­­­­seven examples of when this fun, unsuspecting hobby turns dangerous…dun dun dun. Continue reading “When Fashion Blogging Turns Dangerous”
