Let's Talk about Social Media Algorithms and the state of YouTube

November 19, 2018


Algorithms are our worst enemies now. On YouTube, you are sort of overlooked by the system if you make more than one type of content. On Instagram, it is unlikely your followers will see anything unless you post multiple photos a day and honestly they probably have something similar to the YouTube function. Or at the very least people prefer that an IG account have a theme and one topic like blog photos or fashion or photography. On Twitter, it's a bit more laid back but it's still sort of expected to have a sperate account for blog or Etsy or other promo types. If you have a blog and an Etsy store and are also on YouTube and into other hobbies, you can end up drowning in social media accounts. Well, I've decided to just say fuck it.

My Dream Tattoos

November 16, 2018


Bit of a different post today but I think it'd be fun. A fact about me I don't think I've shared here before, I have always wanted to get tattoos. My tastes have changed over the years and I am very grateful my mom didn't let me get the multicoloured nautical star tattoo I wanted when I was 15. I hate them now. I've grown to want tattoos that have meaning to me and have a special design. I've also fallen deeply inlove with watercolour tattoos.

Diary Entry 3

November 9, 2018


My least favourite part about blogging is writing these intros. I never know where to start. I always procrastinate writing because I don't want to write them. Am I alone in this? Anyway, these diary entries are kind of like a life update so let's talk about what's been happing with me.

My Halloween Party Playlist

October 24, 2018


From about August 1st until midnight on Halloween night I have a handful of Halloween and spoopy songs I listen to on a loop. I call it my Halloween Mix. Though I've never been to or thrown a Halloween Party. It's more of a dance party of one. But that doesn't matter. I love dancing to Halloweenie music. These are my favourites to dance to.


What I love about the Halloween Season

October 20, 2018

 

When I was a kid my parents decorated the house for many of the holidays. Easter had some Egg and bunny decals and plastic wall pieces. Valentine's Day had some heart decorations. Halloween and Christmas, on the other hand, went all out. For Halloween, we had rubber bats that hung from doorways. Wall decorations everywhere. There were peelable glass decals that went on the windows and on the fish tanks. The candle lights we always had in out window got changed for Halloween ones. We had classic jack 'o' lantern trick-or-treat buckets everywhere in an array of colours. We had fake spiders and webs.


My A-Z of Halloween

October 17, 2018




This year I have been loving these A-Z posts. It's so fun to come up with something for every letter. Having a Halloween theme and really got me into the spooky spirit! I love Halloween and this style post is perfect to get me excited for the season! Here's my A-Z of Halloween!


The Halloween Tag 2

October 14, 2018


"This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Pumpkins scream in the dead of night!" That song has been on a constant loop in my brain since September 1st. Halloween is right on par with Christmas for my favourite time of the year. I did a Halloween Tag a couple years ago and I thought it'd be fun to do another one. These kinds of posts get me so excited for the season!


Maybelline Lemonade Craze Palette | First Impressions

October 11, 2018


I kind of fell in love with this palette when I saw it on Maybelline's twitter. The swatches were amazing! The pop of red and the rose gold were so amazing! They shared the photos like 2 months before the launch and I'm not going to lie I kind of forgot about it until I saw it on display at the store about a month ago. Then I remembered the swatches and was excited all over again!


Homestyle One-Pot Spicy Chili Recipe | Gluten-Free + Dairy Free + Easily Made Vegan

October 8, 2018


Something about this time of year makes me crave warm and cosy things. Fuzzy blankets, hot cups of tea and hot cocoa, warm bowls of food. I've never been much of a soup person but I love chili. I love how warm it makes me feel. The spiciness of the chili powder and cumin. It's the perfect dish for the fall and winter time!


My Struggles with Body Image | Mental Health + Me

September 10, 2018


This might be the hardest mental health and me post I've written this far. A big part of my depression as a teen was linked to my body image. I've had issues with being overweight since I was 4. I'm deathly allergic to cough syrup and the steroids the doctors gave me permanently messed up my metabolism. Before that I had issues gaining weight so I was on a high protein diet when everything happened. So when my metabolism stopped working I was still trying to gain weight and gained too much. I've been fighting it ever since.


Dying my Hair Unnatural Colours for the First Time | Cutting & Dying my hair on my own | Purple + Blue Hair Dye Adventures

September 4, 2018



 I love watching Jenna Marbles "fuck herself up" on a weekly basis on her channel. I too have an urge to change my appearance frequently. When I was 13-15 I dyed my hair 13 times in 18 months. I had all the natural colours. Black, brown, bleach blonde, Auburn. But never anything unnatural more than pink highlights a bit darker than cotton candy.

Diary Entry 2

August 16, 2018


Hello Everyone! It feels like ages since I wrote my First Diary Entry. It's only been like 2 months but I've been so run down lately that it feels like ages between blog posts. After last month's Harry Potter marathon I feel a lot better. So I thought now on my re-entry into "normal" posts it would be fun to do another diary entry. Just talk out my recent thoughts and feelings. So let's just jump into it.

Harry Potter | The Boy Who was Forgotten

July 31, 2018


In honour of Harry’s Birthday today I thought it’s time I do a character focus on the Chosen One. So where to begin. I have lots of feeling but let’s start off with the reason this title is “The Boy Who Was Forgotten”
