Playing A Part

Hey guys! I realize that I did miss a post on Sunday and that’s because I’m working on something big that’ll be revealed soon.

Anyways, so, today I’m going to be elaborating on the explanation of my motto.

Like everyone else, I have a motto that I live by and it was a culmination of my love for fashion and showmanship (I suppose it also appeals to my vanity as well). I had always and still do believe that the way you present yourself is extremely important. It’s confidence when you go out dressed and you are proud of what you show to the world. It’s being different in a way that doesn’t affect anyone else. It’s almost like playing a character everyday-and the character is who you wish you were and having belief in that you can become what you wish, and so in the process becoming the best version of yourself.

I think that ultimately we want to be the best versions of ourselves and the way you dress, and the way you present yourself is half the battle won. You want to present yourself with dignity and confidence because that is important in being successful in anything you put yourself to achieving.

My weekly quote is also a motto that I live by everyday, it’s something that I mashed together back in middle school-its a combination of two popular sayings.

“Dress to impress yourself, because you are your own worst critic.”

Hmmm

Hey guys! Should I start a video blog to go along with this one? It would probably save a lot of time if I’m being honest. The only problem is, I would still have difficulty finding a topic to talk about-also I would need a good video editing software-actually any would be good, I’m not going to make them super fancy or anything, but I think it could be a cool element to add.

Thoughts?

Anyways, my 18th birthday is coming up in around 1 ½ months so I’m having trouble deciding what to do to celebrate. It feels almost wrong to not celebrate but that’s what I’m leaning towards. I’m much more in favor of sleeping in late and going out with family and that’s it. But then, it is the big 18 so I feel almost obligated to celebrate-but one should never underestimate how lazy I am.

So, how should I celebrate?

7 Things I Can’t Live Without

Hey guys!

So, I’m going to talk about the 7 things I absolutely cannot live without aside from necessities like clothes, food, water, shelter, etc.

  1. Brow Pencil-I have lived for 16 years having non-existent brows and I refuse to go back.
  2. Phone-I have lived a week without a phone and I can say that it was so hard because I realized that I’d have to find some other way to set an alarm, set reminders, check my email throughout the day, check social media-some of which do not have a desktop version, and aside from all that, I had to coordinate times so that I could get home-and let me tell you it is damn hard when I do not own a watch. But for convenience sake, this must be on the list.
  3. Hair straightener (or even a brush)-In the morning I look like a crazy person, enough said about that.
  4. Laptop-I can’t write all my blog posts from my phone-there would be more spelling errors than actual words.
  5. Hangers-wrinkles are like… evil.
  6. Glasses-I’m blind. This should be at the top of the list, right? But I can survive without them, I would just have a 50% chance of falling with every step.
  7. A good pair of heels- I cannot live without a pair-especially one that can match anything.

I was going to make it a list of 10 things, but I really couldn’t think of anything else.

ART

hEY guys! So I’m going to talk about my creative journey through the years.

I went through phases during high school when I needed a creative outlet. My first was scrapbooking and I loved it. Rather I loved the idea of it. I made scrapbooks for all my friends-a journey of our friendship. I had bought half the craft store because I went into a creative frenzy. But it didn’t last, I spent so much time on these that I had no time to do anything else.

So, I moved onto other things like fashion design, I loved the idea that I wore only things that I made. It was fun for around two years until I really couldn’t afford to this during school. I made a lot of clothes but I just don’t wear them anymore mostly because of style change. But during this period, not only did I make my own clothes but I also made my own jewelry and accessories-made a lot of random things into earrings (Christmas time was fun because I got really creative). You know, Halloween is my favorite holiday and it was my love of creating that made that year’s Halloween really special. I love dressing up and playing a character. But I had to move on because to be frank I lost a lot of motivation to just sit down for hours and create.

I’ve also delved into nail art and makeup just because it was something small and not as time consuming as the other things.

But, more recently I’ve been loving taking photos, glamour shots. Its fun to take pictures for yourself. I am still in this photography phase (hopefully it’s not just a phase). I take a lot of photos with a Nikon and I use the self-timer settings because I’ve always believed that the only one who would know what I want was myself. So, it adds an extra step but its totally worth it.

Blogging is something that I’ve come to love because its therapeutic for myself. I like writing about my experiences and sharing details about me that a lot of my friends don’t know.

I would consider myself more of a jack of all creative trades rather than a master at something specific. I’m not the best designer, seamstress, photographer, artist, writer or scrapbooker but I would consider myself to be somewhat competent at these arts.
