I have been blogging for a long time. I started off here just doing what this site is intended to do, which is microblogging! I shared pictures I love and found inspirational, etc. Then I began to be more “serious” about it. As I have gotten older and as I have transitioned/changed/matured in the last 7 years from a single woman, to a married woman and now a mother, I have realized that my interests have change. As such I wanted to start a new blog.
Why? Long lengthy post don’t do well here, unless its with readers/bloggers I have started a good relationships with. People don’t seem interested in the type of post I want to write about, despite the fact that this is a personal blog…and Hey that’s find but my effort seems better suited for a different space. At least I think so.
I still intend to keep my tumblr running, but I know that this particular blog is not the platform for the new things I want to share. Maybe that space will do well, maybe it wont, at the least I will be able to write about what I want to write about with out cluttering people’s dashboards with words instead of pictures.
Again, I will keep this running, but maybe I will be going back to microblogging, sharing post I like, uploading quick original pictures and tiny captions, and of course loving the posts from bloggers I enjoy so much. However I know deep down that I want to truly start a new blogging journey, where perhaps a long post is well appreciated or at least not frowned upon??? Thank you all for your support and I do want you to stick around because again this will still be on, it will just be a shorter, quicker, version of itself.
I am not ready to share the new space yet, for those interested, but I will.
The instagram will stay going, because I love it. I am still debating on the twitter. Lets see how this goes. I will catch you all soon.
Until Next Time…
JOY PART 1: A list of 101 Simple Pleasures
The smell of leaves of an untouched book 
Jasmine Tea as it blooms
Life after the Rain
A free balloon across the sky, ready to explore ready for the ride
The taste of chocolate in my mouth
A gliding finger in a newly opened preserves jar
My husbands soft Lips against mine
His warm skin against my constant chilly one
Christmas morning and its endless joy
The 24 hrs before all the toys
Twilight and the promise of a new day, as another blissful one decides to end
Music in all its forms
Art that reaches deep inside my soul
And the simple pleasure I get knowing I exist!
- I want yet another pouch, because you know, I don’t have enough of those in my life Alphabet Bags ‘TA DA!’
- When I got the email from Essie this week regarding their spring collection I fell in love with this color. Hide and Go Chic
- I need a Business Card Holder but I can’t make up my mind on which one yet. Alexander McQueen red wallet
- A few of these Tarte lipsticks have been on my Ulta shopping cart for a while. I keep buying things on Amazon but I need to stop so I can check out.
- My mom broke my Kate Spade phone case, she wont admit it, but she totally did when she handed me my open purse upside down and it fell and cracked. At least the phone is okay but now I need a new case. Tsumori Chisato iphone rubber case, $35 / Kate Spade tech accessory /
Sample Love, Sample Hate
Considering I am madly, deeply in love with Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKATE I thought I was going to love everything else from her line. I got some deluxe sample with a moisturizer and face wash and I have to say, for me, it was nothing to write a blog post about. However I am wonderfully impressed with Clinique’s CC cream (is that redundant? Isn’t the second C stand for Cream already?) Anyways….it offers much better coverage than say your BB Cream, it does an amazing job at correcting my tone and it is absolutely perfect for those days I am a busy Mamma but also dare not leave the house bare face.
