It’s a quarter to one on a Saturday night and I’ve been perusing blogs
for a solid hour or more. What is it about peering into someone else’s
life that is just so fascinating? And discovering a new blog you
immediately ‘click’ with? Nothing compares.
The thing I love about blogging and reading blogs is that (1) it’s
totally, 100% free, (2) it’s enjoyable and gives you a sense of ‘feel
good’ feelings, and (3) it’s something to do (to kill time, to enjoy
your solo time, or whatever you fancy).
Tonight I have been reading everything from vegan raw cookie dough
(I’m not vegan), favourite cleaning products and tips (and tricks), how sliding down a playground slide with a child in your lap can cause a
broken leg (to the child. I don’t have kids, btw), marriage+sex, how to style rubber boots with
outfits and more.
I love the vast variety of blogs that attract my
attention and although I love fashion, I think I love even more a more
‘lifestyle’ approach to blogging because it feels like you get to know
the person on various levels as opposed to just their style. Now, don’t
get me wrong, I love carefully pouring over photos of stylish dressers
alike, being inspired and in awe at times too, but I love more than just
that. Know what I mean?
ps – those shoes up there have absolutely nothing to do with this post except I purchased them on the weekend and am completely obsessed (as that tends to come with the territory of purchasing new shoes). I kind of passed them by when I was looking at the shoes in the store and grabbed another pair to try on. When I asked the girl to get my size, I noticed she was wearing the above shoes and they just looked so. cute. on. so I asked her to grab my size in those as well, what the heck! I loved them but choked a bit on the price so put them on hold. After a sleepless night (kidding. sort of.) I decided they needed to be mine and went back. I’m making tassels my thing.
