I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, about my blog. Mostly, what type of blog I want to work to have, where my blog is going. That sort of thing.
Neither my blog nor myself “fit” into a specific category. I’m not sure why I’m stressing about that, but I am. Or, I was.
Why on earth do I need to categorize my blog or myself?! I blog for me, because I like the outlet(and I get tired of talking to the kittens while the kids and hubby are gone all day #crazycatlady) and because I love to talk/read/learn about all things beauty/nails/skincare/hair/makeup. My hub is an awesome listener and he always humors me when I’m talking beauty, but I don’t have anyone in the “real world” that will want to know what’s on my nails everyday. Or what shadows from my Urban Decay palettes I used in today’s FOTD. Or that LE MAC eyeliner I’m obsessed with. You get the picture.
I’m Amber, a 34 year old wife, Mom to 5, chronic Lyme disease fighter, depression and anxiety warrior, food allergy battling girl that loves to talk about all things beautiful. If I look good, I feel better.
That’s important to me. My blog is my escape from the everyday. MY everyday. Daydreaming beauty….you know, because I like to daydream about fluffy stuff. Sometimes life is stressful, painful, heart wrenching, depressing…
My blog is a little safe place for me, and when I come here I can forget, temporarily, about the things I don’t want to think about or feel.
So now that I have opened up about me, I’d love to hear from others. About anything. From nail polish and makeup, to depression and anxiety. Anything.
