Today is the first outfit photo that was taken with my brand spankin new camera! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, y’all were the first to know about my purchase of the Sony A6000. This is my first mirrorless camera and the boyfriend said that taking my outfit photos is like night and day compared to my Cannon Rebel. I must say, from the times I’ve used this myself it’s been amazing. The quality, and the detail that this camera is able to capture without distorting the image is freakin unbelievable. I barely edited these photos, I probably could’ve gotten away with not editing them at all to be completely honest. I color corrected a few things, but that’s about it.
Over the past week or so I haven’t been too inspired. I’m not going to lie to my lovely readers, I don’t know if it’s because the holidays are over, or if it’s because it’s been cold outside, but I’m just not inspired by anything. I’ve been trying to switch up my style to see if that would help my “nothingness” I guess you can call it. I’m really stressed out about things going on with my personal life and other projects I’m working on outside of my blog, along with my full time job, that I’ve kind of lost myself. It’s really sad that so early into the new year I’m feeling this way. I knew that after the holidays I had to start taking care of more serious matters, but just being disappointed by people is never easy. Feeling like a failure, is never easy. Thanks to these feelings my nightmares have come back. I used to get night terrors to the point where waking up in a cold sweat, crying, or sometimes yelling, was pretty normal and an every night occurrence. Over the past few weeks, waking up in a cold sweat, sometimes crying, having to walk it off in my apartment has become my reality yet again. I wouldn’t call them night terrors just yet, but they are slowly getting there.
I guess I feel like getting this out there is my therapy. Writing about life and my “off days” helps me cope. It also helps me realize that I’m a normal person who hurts when she’s sad, breathes heavily when she’s angry, laughs when she’s happy, and loves with her whole heart. I know that in the end everything will work out, but unfortunately for my family, boyfriend, and the fur children, I’ll be a stressed out cranky mess until I figure some things out. If you’ve read up until this point I’m very surprised because no one ever likes to hear about others suffering or complaining, but I wanted to show y’all that life throws curveballs at ALL of us, and sometimes those curveballs just ruin the mood.
I think that might be why for today’s outfit I’m keeping it simple and rebellious. I’m standing up to these curveballs and taking them like a champ! Well, not really, but I’m trying to handle it!
Alright moving on to our most clicked from last week and I also wanted to give a special shoutout to someone who linked up last week. I know I haven't done a featured blogger, but I think she deserves recognition for telling her story and going through chemo and keeping her spirits up. She is such an inspiration.
Reading this post almost made me want to delete all of what I wrote above but I needed to get my feelings out there. However I've read Fun Fierce Fabulous's blog post over and over again because I love reading about women who DON'T GIVE UP and keep going no matter how hard it is. I hate cancer and everything about it since I have friends and family who fought or are currently fighting and it's a horrible thing. I know for sure I would probably lose myself and I can't even imagine keeping up with my blog during a time like that. That's why reading the blog post linked above was awesome.
Ok, now moving on to the top 3 most clicked bloggers from last week's linkup.
