Come one, come all, to the first quarterly blogger bloopers – this is my little dose of reality. While blogging may seem glamorous and perfect and styled all the time, I often look through my photos and just laugh at all the ridiculous poses I made or derp faces that were captured. I took a poll on Instagram to see whether my readers wanted a post filled with great sales or a post filled with life updates, and life updates was the winner! So in the spirit of real life, I’ve included some of my silliest moments in the past couple months for you to laugh at with me while you read about what I’ve been up to! I’d love to share more articles like this with you guys. Would you enjoy reading them? Let me know!
Let’s dive into the life updates. The first big one: if you haven’t been able to catch up with my posts recently, you might have missed me getting engaged! My boyfriend, Brandon, officially became my fiancé on August 16th, the day before our 2nd anniversary! It’s been a whirlwind since then, but the planning has commenced and we’ve decided on our wedding date, venue, and even our honeymoon location. Don’t worry, I’ll be updating you guys along the way. Right now I’m still semi-in shock that I’m a bride-to-be! Be on the lookout for our engagement photos, coming soon!
Secondly, my cloffice (closet + office) is almost finished! I’ve been in the process of a mini home renovation for the past few months, turning my childhood bedroom into my dream office. I still have to hang my gallery wall and buy a new lamp and trash can, but then I think I’ll be ready to show it all off! You all are going to be shocked by the before and after photos. Let’s just say, getting rid of my purple walls was the best decision ever! I finally feel like I have a space I can call my own.
On that note, it’s a little strange, but I might have to pack up this entire cloffice I just worked so hard on and move it all. Some of you may know that I still live with my parents (chronic illness + blogger budget = I’m staying here til I get hitched), and they’re hoping to move soon. Since they’ll be downsizing from a two-floor house to a condo or apartment, I’ll have minimal space until Brandon and I get our own place. Honestly, the part I’m stressed about the most is whether or not they end up somewhere that allows cats – I can’t live without my furbaby!
Some of you are aware that I have a chronic stomach disease. It’s definitely not the highlight of my life, but it’s looking like it’ll be something I may deal with for the rest of my life, so I’m trying to find peace about it. It’s pretty frustrating when there are full weeks that I can’t leave my bed (I almost missed my own proposal because of a horrible flare-up … gosh, that would’ve been the worst)! At this point, all the specialists I’ve seen have given me the same shrugs and sighs and apologies that there’s nothing more they can do for me. So I’ll continue to monitor what I eat, take it easy when I can, and enjoy life to the fullest on my good days! Trying to make the most of it!
Moving on to the blogging realm. I’m in the process of curating my first e-course! I’ve been really excited to share all my thoughts in one place for you guys! Since I get so many emails and Facebook messages, etc., about starting a blog, I decided to narrow down the key topics I felt like I would’ve benefitted from when I first started, and I’m writing down all my insight. I’m looking forward to finally sharing this work with the world. I have an ongoing list of topics to write on, but if you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know. I am all ears!
I’ve been utilizing the poll option on Instagram stories a lot lately, and it’s been super helpful when thinking up topics for blogging. However, I’d love to really hear from my readers. I want for you to feel like you have a place where you can go to obtain all the fashion and lifestyle inspiration you’re looking for! So please let me know what you’d like to see more of on She Saw Style. It helps me more than you know! Now sit back and enjoy my ridiculous bloopers!
