I already feel incredibly self conscious writing this because I have a bad habit of caring what others think, but here goes nothing. Welcome! I wanted my first "live" post to be an explanation of why I decided to start a blog in the first place. Blogging is obviously the it thing to do these days. I didn't start this blog with the intention of getting free things, obtaining thousands of followers or to portray some pretend life. I am really just doing it for me -- because it is fun, gives me an escape from mama life (ie pjs all day, mashed bananas on my shirt, and dancing around the kitchen belting out songs to my 6 month old because I'm bored) and if people want to follow along then awesome! It will be real & raw & honest. Full of things I like, things that inspire me, things that I hope inspire others...who knows? I have no limits truthfully.
I am doing this because I am passionate about creativity & I very much appreciate aesthetics. Art, photography, fashion, interior decor...simplicity turned into beauty. These things have always caught my eye and made me really happy. It's kind of an indescribable feeling to be honest. I have big hopes of opening my own store, starting my own clothing line or becoming an interior designer (hey, a girl can dream, right?)
On top of that, if you know me, you know I am a talker. I am a total open book. I love talking about anything & everything. I love giving advice & getting advice. I am often told I have "no filter" because I truthfully don't hold anything back (has this gotten me into trouble? you bet). But what better place to channel that energy than a blog? It is essentially an online diary that other people can read if they decide they like what they see.
But seriously...I have big dreams- (first and foremost: opening a store)- and this is the smallest step towards achieving them. I often get asked where I buy clothes, accessories, home decor or Fox's clothes. I think it is beyond flattering and since I cannot actually be a professional stylist, sharing the details is the next best thing. I want every body to love what I love and since that is entirely unrealistic, I am just gonna blog about it.
Keep reading if you like what you see...it won't be perfect, but neither am I.
