That italicized paragraph above is from a post that I started writing all about my experience with postpartum depression, which quickly turned into a straight up novella and had the adverse effect of making me really anxious and depressed while writing it, so I just stopped. One day I will legitimately get past it all and feel like I can write about it, but for now I would say I am still too much in the thick of it, even though it has gotten to the point of being totally manageable. I mean really I am doing so SO much better, but apparently it's still all too fresh for me to be writing about it, which is probably for the better for everybody.
I think I will just stick with the generally vain and shallow and mostly pointless blogging that I am all-too-good at.
Onward and vainward.
Starting with a VLOG idea. Shoot straight with me readers: should I do a completely vain VLOG about how I curl my really long, thick hair in less than 10 minutes most mornings? Would anybody on the face of the earth care about this?? I love VLOGs. I love getting to see and hear bloggers who I feel like are my friends even though we have never met because it makes me
All my top-knots buns either fall out or give me a head ache from how tightly I have to fasten them in order for them to stay up, it's a real problem (of the first world nature of course). Therefore I have had to resign myself to wearing my hair down and curling it if I want to steer clear of the all-day every-day pony tail, and I really do, mostly because pony tails also hurt my head after a while and because I feel more put together with my hair semi-styled. So should I do it? You can be honest, it will not hurt my feelings.
Now for a little showcasing of my new favorite accessory, since I'm being shallow at all. It's also a little plug for my sister who is a new merchandiser of Chloe and Isabel. She hosted her first jewelry party over the Christmas break and I got this adorable coral branch necklace and I am in love:
Their jewelry is all so adorable, check it out for yourself, and the best part is they have a lifetime replacement guarantee and any mother of small, grabby handed children knows how invaluable that is. Definitely head over and drool over some of their gorgeous pieces.
Lastly, what do you readers think of this blog doing another round of the Cabin Fever Creativity Link Up? I feel like it's a good idea since blogging is such a great way to stay connected with people when you can't leave the house- and I never leave the house anymore- and hosting and participating in link-ups is a great way to keep the blog-ball rolling, so to speak. Also, cabin fever is really bad over here, and I mean really bad- I actually excited to make more play dough for my kids, and dress up for their tea parties.
Ok "excited" might be an exaggeration, but these days drag to where I am just looking for something, anything! to fill them. Anyways, I think I need to indulge myself in some other more mature hobbies of the crafting variety. So what do you say, want to join me?
And that's really all I have for you today, I hope your week has started off great!
