Something Different

Hey friends! First of all I want to say thank you for the response to my recent post 4 months in. I deliberately stay away from sharing too many details of my actual life online simply because that can open one up to a lot of things, many of those things being negative things. You all have been so kind and lovely and supportive and it warmed my heart, so thanks again for being the greatest little crew. You guys rock! Now, for the news. I’ve been working pretty hard on something and I wanted to share it with you guys. I’ve been exploring the realm of vlogging editing and all of that jazz and wanted to share it with you all. This isn’t the whole thing, just a little teaser to whats on its way but feel free to check it out below:   The final video should be uploaded tonight or tomorrow, so keep an eye out! It’ll be posted on My Channel. Thanks AGAIN for being so amazing!

Pro tip: wanting to be in control of an environment 24/7 doesn’t mean that you will actually be in control of that environment ever. Needless to say, this weekend …

Messy, but lovely.

I love that word. Lovely. It’s actually one of my favorite words. That’s an interesting word to attach oneself to, isn’t it? I used to use variations of this word throughout all of my social media accounts. Actually, up until recently, the name of this blog was “ColorMeLovelyy”. The name was a branch off of the name of my Instagram page, Staylovelyy. It’s a simple command to me from myself reminding myself to stay lovely. Life is…weird. As you grow older you see things that can and do change the way you see the world around you. You hear about the awful things happening all over the world and you experience awful things in your own life that have the potential to leave you scarred and a bit hesitant to embrace the world as openly as you did when you were younger. Growing up definitely did some of those things to me. I was the one hesitant to open myself up to anything or anyone new in fear of being hurt or experiencing something unpleasant. …
