I walk on railroad tracks, cuz I’m a rebel like that.

I feel a little bit like my blog is getting a nice makeover: I took that hiatus last week to save up some outfit pictures, all of which Mr. Owl is taking, and they’re all so pretty and professional-looking… except for the part where I still don’t quite know what to do with myself in them.

I am hoping that my new blog-schedule will go something like this:

  • Monday: Normal outfit post.
  • Tuesday: Tutorial! Whether it’s makeup or hair or nails or clothing makeovers.
  • Wednesday: Midweek inspiration, where I show you another blogger’s outfit that inspired my own, or reinterpret another blogger’s outfit into something I wear.
  • Thursday: a day-in-the-life sort of post to share my favorite day of the last week.
  • Friday: Pretty pictures and lovely links– my photography, and the best internet things I’ve found over the week.

And this week, somehow or another I managed to get all but one (Tomorrow’s post) uploaded, written, and scheduled by Saturday morning. Eventually, I would love to be able to have enough outfit pictures and other things saved up that I can just sit down for a few hours on a weekend and schedule all of my posts for the next week… but knowing how last-minute I tend to be, that might not work.

I am hoping that having posts pre-scheduled means I’ll have more time to respond to comments (because you all might have noticed how terrible I am at responding in a timely fashion) and comment on other blogs.

Please ignore the fact that I grabbed the sewn-on sash of the dress and not my actual skirt in this picture. I need to remove the ties on the dress, because I never, ever use them. I always belt it. So really, they’re just there to make life difficult and mess up otherwise nice pictures… like this one.

Ah, well.

This ring has become one of my favorite rings. It goes with everything.

And also, I love these shoes. They’re velvety, they’re pink, they’ve got a flower on them, and they actually have nice soles and aren’t just flat and support-less like so many flat shoes these days.

Now, I have one request from all of you, to help me out: if you ever see any makeup look that you would love to try but don’t have any idea how it’s done, please let me know! I do much better tutorials if I have requests to fulfill; otherwise, I just grab all of my purple eyeshadow and sit there thinking “what can I do with this…?” And then my tutorials are somewhat random and aren’t quite sure where they should be going.

So, I still have to come up with and film a tutorial this week, and I do have one idea but if you see any makeup pictures this week that you love and want me to do, email me (or comment) with a link to the picture. I’d love to work up a little queue of makeup looks to do. Or makeup application tips, or… y’know. Any sort of tutorial you’d want to see.

I hope you all have a beautiful Monday!
