coming up with a blog post is not always easy to do. whenever i do get an idea i’ll write it down right away, but most of the time i don’t have a set way of doing things. one of my biggest inspirations does come from photos. at one time i will have multiple photos splayed across my desktop, grouped into little clusters, just waiting to be picked. the tricky part is deciding what to write about them. at the same time it happens to be the best part, because that’s where i get my prime ramblings that usually end up being something. i mean yesterday i went from instagram to harry potter… i didn’t even mean to make that connection and i just did. if anything, my life in lipstick has taught me that things happen… life happens. you can’t always plan everything out, sometimes you just have to just wait and see what’s in store. i guess the photos i’ve chosen are an example of that. they may be similar in color tone (to some extent), but they just happen to be of things i love, or like, or wish to see one day. together they have meaning, and while it may not be completely planned out, as anything goes in life, it’s what you make of it.
so i made it home for spring break, and have definitely taken this week as a chance to unwind, work out and lay in bed listening to stay by rihanna (no joke). see how i threw work out in there between relaxing? it makes me seem athletic and fit, but in reality i’m capable of sleeping until 2 pm. mind you, post-workout i literally feel like i’m incapable of breathing… plus, i look super pretty right after i get off the treadmill. anyways, the focus of this post is on the color red. i used to be averse to wearing it, but i always loved it. i also had an obsession with red lipstick which i never attempted to try until the lipstick chili flake (sold at j.crew) came into my life. if there has been anything the color red has taught me, it’s to not be afraid to take risks, because sometimes they work out (and yes, sometimes they don’t) and when they do it feels great. i feel like red can make almost anything BAM, so i found pictures which seem pretty BAM to me. yeah, i just made BAM an adjective, just go with it?
