Coming Soon To Your Feed

With the end of Christmas and focus change to the upcoming new year, I am pleased to be able to announce some of the many new projects I've been working on over the last few months. These have been a long time coming, so let's just get to it. :)


1. Identity change.

TMD has grown to the point where its name no longer suits it. Since my views and goals have changed, it's time to say good-bye to the beloved title Truly. Madly. Deeply. I'm going to miss this name, but it's time to move on. I want this blog to expand and form into the vision of what I truly want it to be.

With this identity change will come a new URL (which has already been established), design (almost done!) and content upgrade - which leads us to the next point.

2. New content.

My content is getting a makeover. New posts are going to be more in depth, and my old posts are going to be spruced up as well. I have a new posting schedule worked out, and lots more work to do, so please stay patient as I continue to work our the kinks of my new system. :)

3. Focus change.

I used to be the kind of blogger that was obsessed with receiving pageviews and followers (a post about this to come). Due to this obsession, I started losing focus, and blogging started to feel more like work and less like something I loved doing. After careful evaluation - and many repeated signs/reminders - I came to the fact that I was indeed a people pleaser. But learning this about myself has allowed me more insight, both to my human soul and to my blog, which has helped me reevaluate and shift my focus.

The new focus of my blog will be somewhere along the lines of expression, creativity and the journey one takes when getting to know their self (sorta kinda not really what I've been doing now, I guess).

4. Reader reward.

This blog is so close to reaching 150 readers, so as a reward I've decided to have a giveaway (whoops and cheers)! Check back in later for more details. ;)


Well, that's all for now! I hope you guys are excited for 2015 as I am. :)

What are you planning for the new year?

+ Scrollbar tutorial
+ Christmas photoshoot // a few things I received

  1. I love this so much! We often have to rethink WHY we're blogging, and it's easy to lose our focus. Your new blog is awesome!

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)




This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...




Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…

How and Why: Linkup Parties

Starting out as a blogger can be really hard. You want to grow your blog, but even though it seems like you've tried everything, nothing works. Your blog hasn't expanded in the least. You don't see any improvement.

That's why in this post I'm going to share with you the miracle of link up parties! I'm going to go over how they work, why you should create your own, which hosts you should use and much, much more.

Let's get started, shall we? :)

How they work The typical link party can be broken down into 3 basic* parts.

* Every link up is different, so as you're reading through this and considering to create your own, consider adding a unique twist to your link up party. After all, people tend to get tired of seeing the same old same old.

The sponsors These are the people who came up with the original idea of that particular link party. It can be anyone from you on your lonesome to several …
