So this is something a little bit different, but I did make a new years resolution (not sure if it was this year or last) that I wanted to do more personal posts on my blog so that people could actually get to know me and my life – rather than just a plethora of beauty posts and product reviews (though I bet that that’s why people come here anyway). I actually drafted up a couple of headings and I have a few heavier topics that I want to write about, but I figured that it’s better to start off on a lighter foot.
Plus, I’m writing this while watching an episode of Criminal Minds, and that really isn’t the right mood to write about the darkness of my soul – is it?
So, kicking this off, I’m going to list and share a couple of things that I absolutely love and that have nothing to do with beauty at all – no products, no regimes and no make up trends. Just me, and everything else that makes me who I am.
It’s my 100th post, everyone! /throwing confetti everywhere/
So for this, I was really wanting to do something special – like maybe post something inspirational or an about me, but I felt like that was a little bit obnoxious (or I’ll write something like that if I get questions later on) so, instead, I thought that I would just write a short post to talk about my journey so far and to thank you guys!
The off-shoulder top isn’t exactly a new trend. In fact, I remember being absolutely obsessed with them back in primary school (or maybe it was early high school) when Tammin Sursok used to wear them a lot. In fact, I distinctly recall reading an interview with her back in the days where she commented that ‘less isn’t more’ and that jeans and an off-shoulder top could be incredibly sexy. And I agreed. I wanted to be pretty and sexy just like Tammin.
As a side note, I know that she’s well known as being Jenna from Pretty Little Liars, but before all of that fame, she was a massive name in Australian television. She was a singer as well, did you know? I highly doubt I was the only girl who looked up to her.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand – off-shoulder tops.
I’m the type of person who doesn’t have as many friends as people sometimes think I do. In fact, I can somewhat consider myself an extroverted introvert. It takes me a long time to really be comfortable around someone and, oftentimes, I prefer to spend my weekends alone.
Last weekend though, as people saw from my #ootd post, I spent the weekend with my friend Sophia! We had taken some photos together, ate good food and did some online shopping (there is a massive make up haul coming your way) but we also spent a night filming something fun for my Youtube channel.
I’m personally a little appalled at the mess I look and came to the realisation that I sound (and look) very strange on video. However, the entire thing is so much fun that I can’t help but share it. Here it is everyone! I hope you enjoy.
