I'm going to have to apologize to you all for the lack of posting this week. My internet was down ALL day today, and I've been redecorating my bathroom! I'll show you some before and afters once it's finished. Right now there are some holes in the walls and nothing goes with the paint color. My bathroom is a light blue grey color. I know, I know, "Why on earth would you paint any room in the house that color?!" It was five years ago, and I knew nothing of color! Blue is one of my favorite colors, and I thought I'd never get sick of it. I guess I'm not quite sick of it, because I still have plenty of blue in my new color scheme, but the walls will be a much more neutral color! I've also been helping my grandpa move out of his old apartment into a new one, which I have to say it much nicer.
Anyway, all these silly things aside, I was on twitter the other day; and I follow Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky. She linked to another blogger's comment section. It went something like this:
Blogger: Went to a super pricey makeup shop the other day and luckily gravitated towards the only thing in my budget (nail polish). The colors are great! I bought two.
Commenter: Glad to see $30 nail polish is in your budget. Must mean business is good right? Teehee
I can't recreate the graceful perfection that was this blogger's response, but it got me thinking...
Are most girls really so envious and ridiculous that we can't just congratulate each other on a job well done? I don't know if her intention was to try to make the blogger feel guilty for buying expensive nail polish, but I felt guilty just reading the comment and I didn't even buy the polish!
I can honestly say that most of my favorite bloggers are, by my standards, very successful; but I have never envied any of them. In fact, as I followed them over the years and saw their followers increase in number, I was happy because more girls were being exposed to their wonderful ideas and their beautiful, unique perspectives. I celebrate posts that are comprised of nothing but c/o items. You have to work if you want things. Leaving passive aggressive comments on other blogs isn't going to make yours any better. Sorry for this little rant. Just had to get that off my chest!
I'll leave you with this prettiness. Picked snap dragons at the local U-Pick with mark the other day and I snapped a few pretty photos!
