It's all because of my dedication to the cause, my friends. The cause? Keeping this up so that I can have something for myself.
To be honest, I've gone through many stages in the blogging world.
- At first, when I started this blog, it was a distant dream of something that I could hope to keep up.
- Sadly, that didn't work out. Almost a year later, I picked it up again. During this time, Ja Ja Jules was just something that I kept private, hidden from everyone except for my sister.
- I decided after a few blog entires to go public with my friends. Once I published the blog on Facebook, it started to become a goal to get a certain number of readers. I was preoccupying myself with reading on the internet how to gain money from advertisements, sponsors, and how to increase traffic flow. This built stress and led to disappointment when I just didn't have the time to market myself and my blog as a brand.
Now, it's just all about me. Fuck the stats. I have a blog, bitches. I'm a funny blogger who doesn't take myself too seriously. I don't have to answer to anyone, and that is what makes me happy. Don't get me wrong; if you like to blog and enjoy marketing yourself, finding your niche, getting sponsors and free products, good for you. It's just not right for me at this time of my life.
Anyway, onto the outfit! I wore this when my boyfriend and I went out for supper for his birthday. It was belated, as he works away and wasn't home for his actual birthday. I felt very confident in this, since I kept with my normal casual-feel while getting a little dressy with some high wedges and bright-red lips.
peplum top: asos. jeans: old navy (old). clutch: aldo (old). wedges: spring (similar). watch: nixon (similar). necklace: urban outfitters.
Figured I'd finish this not-so-serious-yet-personal post with a laugh:
Until next time,
Note: Yes my hair is a few inches shorter. No it was not planned. Oh, how interesting is attending my first month of Hair Dressing School.
