|Confession Session| What's New With You Link Up
I am TIRED! It's almost 9:30 pm as I type this and I've been sitting in front of my computer since 9:00 trying to figure out how I want to start this post. A post that is really about nothing but everything at the same time. I'm having one of those times where I want to blog but I'm not really sure what to blog about. Don't you hate it when that happens? You want to use your creative outlet and nothing is flowing.
So I think I'll just fall back on an oldie but a goodie and have myself a little confession session. SO...
// I bought myself a color correcting palette and used it for the first time yesterday. And oh my goodness what a difference it made! I'm a fan so far. I bought the NYX brand from Target. I'm excited to get really good at it so it doesn't take me as long to do my makeup in the morning.
// I have a slight obsession with strips. I may or may not have bought two very similar black and white stripped shirts at Target last night and was totally called out by a Target employee on it in one of the isles. It was hilarious.
// Jurassic World debuted on HBO a few weeks ago and I've watched it like 3 times. Mostly because of Chris Pratt.
// I LOVED Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones. I have a feeling this is going to be my favorite season.
// I still haven't started refurbishing my couch. My plan was to have it stripped of all the old stuff in April and start the refurb in May and I have yet to do a single thing. I think need to get on it.
// If you saw my snaps the other day you've heard this, but I want to blog about it because my blogging ego is still a little bruised. I applied to be in one of those blogging community things and was rejected. A few of my fellow Houston bloggers are members and I thought it would be fun to join as well and meet some more bloggers. But apparently my blog doesn't meet their requirements for membership. One of the requirements is that you have high quality photos and when I read that I thought, "oh perfect! I have those!". But I guess I don't have enough. Not every single post I write has high quality pictures but I just don't have time to take them! I have to reserve those pictures for the weekends when I have time to go out and take them and edit them and stuff.
The other reason is that my blog doesn't focus on just one or two things (like fashion and beauty or solely travel). I have blog about several different things (which I thought was the definition of a lifestyle blog). I have to admit when I saw the email that I was not being offered membership I was sad! Here I was thinking I was doing pretty good in blog world and boom someone comes along and basically says my blog isn't good enough for their community. It was not a nice feeling. Plus I started comparing myself to all the bloggers that are in the community and that really started to burst my blogging bubble.
But I've had a few days to think about it (and bitch about it to my friends! THANKS FRIENDS!) and at the end of the day, I'm happy with my blog.
I like what I blog about and I'm not gonna let one silly little rejection stop me from doing something that I love. And I'm not gonna change what I do just to make my blog more appealing to one community. I think plenty of people find it appealing for what it is and I am proud of the little space I've created.
And on that note, I'm taking myself to bed with a cup of tea and my book!
