Brain Mash and My Home :D11:11 AM
Hellllllllllo my lovelies. I am feeling like I am in a very random mood today so I thought I would just talk about some random things. Maybe a little update on my life. I'm apologizing ahead of time because this is going to be lots of words and not a lot of pics but you can skip this entry if you like. :)
I feel like I've been posting too many pics lately and some random people seem to think I'm narcissistic for it (if they just look at the pics and don't read the words I write). So I think I'll write more, or at least do a few more heart-to-heart entries since I feel like people really connect to those and that's what really means a lot to me.
I was talking with my friend Steph recently about how it's a little strange not knowing who is reading your blogs. I mean, there are so many people out there who might stumble upon your site and plenty of trolls who just go around posting negative comments here and there. It makes me wonder WHY. Is there any reason? Do these people think they will actually accomplish a change when they tell you cruel things or is there really no altruistic reason? It's completely taking for granted that the sliver of a life the blogger shows you is actually a real person underneath. I suppose I don't understand simply because I cannot empathize with these people. The thought has never crossed my mind to go to someone else's site and post something outright mean. I'm just not that type of person.
Maybe I am naive for wanting to simply spread love and knowledge of what minuscule information I know, to make people feel better about themselves. Isn't that what we all want? Just to feel better about ourselves? I was accused of "loving [my]self" when I post lots of pics under the guise of showing products. It's ironic, because in a way that's kind of my mantra. LOVE YOURSELF. Everyone should love themselves because it's not about the makeup or the clothes, it's how you FEEL when you put on the makeup and clothes. The twisted part is that narcissism itself comes from trying to make up for a self-loathing, which I don't honestly feel I fit the description of. I'm not saying I'm perfect, I'm simply saying that I try to accept myself as a flawed individual and I don't feel like I have to "make up" for that. It's human. It's beautiful.
And for that matter, I am still weirded out by seeing a lot of my own face. Isn't everyone? Doesn't everyone look at their own pics and see the flaws glaring out at them even if others don't see it? But I feel like I have to do products justice, especially if they are the products of my friends so in those cases I try to take the best pics I can (which may or may not work out ;). Of course I deal with self-consciousness and uncomfortability but I try not to let that get in the way of my joy of life and who I am as a person.
Okay, now that you had a little peek at what's been on my brain lately, I wanted to give you a look into my home. I live in a little apartment with my husband and since there is a strong possibility that we may be moving soon, I thought I would post some pics. Now this is a little warning: My apartment is rarely this clean. XD But she is mine (well, temporarily) and I love her. Hehe.
Here is our living area. Hubby's favorite tv which we got a ridiculous deal on and split the cost of even before we were married! And my leather couches that my mom found for a great deal on Craigslist. (anyone notice the 2 domokuns sitting in front of the tv? ;)
Next to that is our little dining area. I love that our table expands so we can have friends and family over for dinner. :D In the right corner is an engagement pic that I STILL haven't gotten framed. Lol, lazy.
To the right is our little kitchen. A bit cluttered since we were cooking when I took this pic, but it's cozy. In the middle are his and hers little plush ninja figures that my friend Hannah made for me and Hubs, hanging from our cabinet. ^^
Hubs is probably telling me not to take a pic. LOL. I love that blue shark oven mitt to the left of the stove! Hubs does a hilarious shark puppet show. I treat my kitchen like my clothes. The things in it should actively make you happy. :D
And here is a look from the front door. A few Korean-inspired decorative touches, but mostly young, classy, and cozy.
Since all the other rooms are crazy right now I will leave that for another day. But I hope you enjoyed this very informative tour of the From Head To Toe household. \o/
Have a great weekend everybody! I'm going to go put together some packages that I've been procrastinating on sending now. Dears who are expecting packages, I have not forgotten about you! <3
Love you guys and I'll be back with a real tutorial soon. ;)
