First off, I HAVE 100 FOLLOWERS.
When did that happen?
I do not know.
But, let's move on to the more obvious question...
"Where they heck have you been Aub?"
Well, honestly, I've been half busy and half lazy. School started and I was working every other day and the blog got heavily shifted aside (like, I never logged in...or checked my email...and I'm fairly sure some people are all kinds of pissy with me...sorry guys!) BUT after taking a break from blogging I realized several things that all led me to one conclusion.
I love blogging ...and I want to continue.
But I've got to take a different approach. First of all, taking time off from my blog made me realize how much pseudo-pressure it put on me. I actually found myself shopping differently because that little voice that constantly said "will this blog good? will this be GOMI? do too many people already have this? DOES THIS LOOK LIKE IT CAME FROM J CREW!?!" was gone. I actually bought ONLY the things that I liked.
It was refreshing.
So my conclusion was that yes, I do want to blog...but differently. I don't want to get sucked into that crazy warp ever again.
So, I thought...change content?
Lifestyle blogs are compelling...but let's face it...my life is not that interesting. I don't have kids, I don't cook that amazingly, I can't take pictures, I don't even have pets...
So..maybe, but probably not.
Overall, I think the blog will stay much the same but I just want to be in a place where I can express myself more in the hopes that little voice will manifest itself here instead of in the store as I'm buying leather pants I'll only ever wear once. I want to tell you guys things even if (prepare yourself) they aren't related to fashion at all. OR, (brace yourselves now) if they oppose "fashion rules" altogether.
I'm throwing rules out the window ya'll!
I wanna do more celebrity style posts and funny posts and "hey look at this, I love it so I wanted to show ALL OF YOU!" posts.
Basically, I wanna do what I want and up until now, I was more than afraid to do so. I felt like I was restricted to all these rules that DON'T EVEN EXIST (even if you think they do...I'm looking at you GOMI!)
So, let's start over. A fresh take on a young girl's blog.
Hi, I'm Aubree. I am 18 years old and I am in college. I like dressing up, but sometimes I like wearing band tee shirts, beanies, and converse.
I suck at makeup and I only know 2 ways to do my hair.
I laugh WAY too loud and I think I'm so much funnier than I really am.
I adore music and coffee (I am so average) and I truly do love blogging. (the world will never know why)
I never shop at J Crew...and I don't even really think it's that cool (GASP)
I like Kohls.
There, I said it. I went there today, actually and IT'S A GREAT PLACE.
I'm a little outspoken and opinionated and that gets me in a lot of trouble sometimes BUT (you guessed it) I don't care.
There it is. I hope you will follow along with me on this amazing bloggy journey...but if you wanna hit that "unfollow" button...to each his own I suppose. Enjoy your Kate Spade bag DORKS.
(OMG. Looking back at this, I realized that, just like in my real life, I make a lot of sarcastic and snide comments when typing...so a lot of parentheses make their way in there. MY LIFE IS LIKE ONE BIG PARENTHESES.)
