Oh, So Busy.

Hello there, my dear readers. :) Goodness, I feel like I haven't written a "real post" in ages. But I'm sure it hasn't been that long...

So guess who's been a busy bee? This girl has! \(>.<)/ I got twelve orders on my design blog in two days (Mind = Blown). At first I was astonished this many people wanted to work with me, and wanted me to design their blog. I was/am so happy. But of course, that's twelve designs. Twelve people vying for my attention and I have to be attentive to each one. I have to double check I'm giving the right person what they want (sometimes I'm so easily confused...), and have to make sure there are enough creative juices to go around. So far it's been well. It just annoys me that my email inbox is so full. -.- I'm (usually) the type of person who replies to their emails just to make my inbox number get closer to zero. o.O

So, yes... maybe I could share with you guys some of the designs I've done. :} I don't know.

It's kinda sad (I guess? I don't know. There's probably a better word.) though, because recently my computer has been acting up and I've had to keep it on my desk (which is where I've been sitting all day). The other day I was sitting in bed and all of a sudden the screen just goes white. Then it like, faded to black. And went back to white. While it was doing this, I'm pretty sure my heart threw up into my stomach. I need this computer. I cannot function without it. Well, actually, I could. I'd just feel disconnected and sad because I wouldn't be able to do anything. :P Gosh, practically live on this thing. Our relationship cannot be healthy. -.-

Anyway, I guess all this has been to say, I'm busy, and don't have a lot of down time right now--nor do I have a properly functioning computer. But school is done for me, starting tomorrow. :) I'm so excited! My insides have been craving freedom ever since school started. O.o

Alrighty, well, I better go. These blogs won't design themselves. ;)

Thank you for reading. <3


  1. Whoa! You sound busy! I have started designing blogs too. I have gotten two orders in one day this week, and I thought that was a lot! ;)
    Oh and may I ask if you could help me out with some blog design questions? I know your super busy right now, but I would really appreciate it if you could email me sometime. If you don't want to tell me anything then that's totally fine. :)

    Here's my email:

    Oh and here's my email if you want to check it out:

  2. I don't even have a computer, but if I'd cry if the family one die. This baby and I, we're going to die together. ^.^ *insert picture of me in my grave with my cold white fingers pried around my computer* best friends till the very end. ;)

  3. A couple of tips:
    1.) Take your time. The design won't be what you want it to be if you do not concentrate, and you will be disappointed in yourself if you don't give it your all.
    2.) Do not stress. Whatever you do, do not stare at a computer screen until your eyes pop out. You need to go outside, feel nature on your face, get a snack, make some lemonade.
    3.) Make sure you have patience with yourself. You can't design a website and work your normal schedule all at the same time. I have learned all these things myself in the past three years the hard way. Designing can be a fun business but a brain wracking one as well.
    3.) Make sure there's lots of lighting in your work space. Open a window, turn on a lamp. It's refreshing and brightens your mood.

  4. Sounds like you are really busy!
    Your designs are great! :)

  5. I nominated you for the Liebster award and the Fashion Tag. Go to my blog to see your questions :)

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.
