I feel that sometimes (some of) us bloggers can take ourselves a bit too seriously. We see vampy models posing all ... well... vampy and kind of glum a lot of the time and I have no idea how to post in font of the camera, so it seems that has proved to be my inspiration (I also think my teeth look weird in photos... not sure why?!). But there are those fabulous bloggers, like Katy and the rest of the Little Winter clan, Becca from Fashion-Train and Becky from Becky Bedbug who always make me smile because they smile (or take less 'serious' photos. Less serious in really good way, where you get some personality - ok, lets not get too deep here). It makes a blog way more welcoming I think, and I want a blog that has that welcoming vibe. Also, I'm really not a serious person in real life; in fact, I'm pretty much the complete opposite. So today I decided on changing my photos up just a smidge.
I've given the death stare (as I call it) only a third of the glory in this post so I hope you enjoy my little jig that I've captured in the first photo and my odd (kind of) smile in the third. As they sandwich the death stare I hope it's a little less disconcerting. Anywsy, so I'm going to throw in the occasional 'fun' photo in future so my blog is more 'me'! That's what blogging is about after all, right?
But really, the most important thing in this post is my £10 Primark coat. It's something that immediately grabbed me in a strange way a few weeks back (but not physically... or pervey-ly... because that phrasing does sound a bit odd). I didn't think it was worth the £30 price tag as it's something I'd not normally pick out. But my love for it has grown in those few weeks that we were away from each other, so when I saw it for a tenner, this cheap and beautiful thing was mine. These pleather shorts are a new purchase too, I've wanted a pair for a while now but it's been difficult finding a flattering fit, but these Daisystreet ones are literally perfect.
I washed my hair for the first time since dying it and it looks much more even now (it looks a little bit lighter here than it does in real life I think). I'm starting to really quite like it!
Do you guys have any bloggers whose posts always put a smile on your face?
