THE QUESTIONS


1. What made you decide to start blogging?

I believe when I saw Liz's blog/website [American Girl Fan] I was deeply inspired to create my first blog, Loving Your American Girl Doll--which is now "archived".

2. What is your fashion style?

As Anna said; horrible. XD Okay, okay, maybe it's not that bad. If anything my style would be comfy--mama loves her sweatshirts. <3

3. What is something none of your followers know about you?

Now there's a question I didn't expect to see. Erm...my alter ego is [apparently] a unicorn...? <-- Don't judge. I'm trying to get it "legally" changed to something else. -_-

4. What are some of your blogging goals?

*smacks lips* Um...I guess I really want to inspire people, and as a bonus getting/having tons of followers would be nice. :}


5. Where is your favorite place to shop?

--> THRIFT STORES <--

oh yah baby. B-)

6. What would your ideal amount of blog followers be?

Ideal amount? Erm...usually I'm not content with such an amount of, um...companions that trail behind me in my journey through the blogging world, so...yeah. I guess you could say I don't have an "ideal amount". The more the merrier, right?


7. What are your talents?

Hmm...usually, right off the bat I would say dancing but that was never really a talent, so... I guess writing. Maybe, web/graphic design [ehh, sorta not really]. Um...another one of my [awkward] talents is fangirling; which includes squealing, jumping, talking really fast, hyperventilating--you know, the whole "shebang".


8. Are you a leader or a follower?

I am a follower who wishes to lead, but never knows where to go. o.O


9. What is one of your favorite quotes?

Oh jeez, um...this is hard. I have so many favorites yet I don't remember any of them. O.o So... I'm just gonna go with this:


"It's never too late to be what you might have been."
- George Eliot

10. Do you have a favorite book or book series?

AHHHHH! YES YES YES! *cough*


11. Out of all of the synonyms for elegant, which would you describe yourself with (smart - stylish - dressy - graceful - dainty - fine)?

Uh...graceful...? :}


12. What is your favorite flower?

...I like roses...



* * *


I tag...anyone who wants to do this. Because *scrolls through dashboard* it looks as if almost everyone I know has already done this... XP

Welp, that's all for now!

thanks for reading. <3

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?



Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…

Being productive can be hard, especially when you have too many things balanced on your plate. Most of the time, you don’t know where to start.
