How To Start Loving Your Blog Again

I’ll just come out and say it—I’ve fallen out of love with my blog. I began writing in this little corner of the internet back in 2015, originally calling my blog Katsomething. I wasn’t really taking it seriously, mostly just wanting to write freely about topics that interested me. It was only after I was introduced to other blogs that were doing such innovative and inspiring things that I really fell in love with the hobby and put a lot of effort into it. I began pre-planning blog posts, bought a DSLR camera to combine my love of writing with my love of photography in a more professional way, and for a while it really helped my blog get off the ground.

Little Loves

It's warmed up here in Toronto, which means that we're finally able to put away our winter coats away and actually sport some shorts and crop tops in preparation for the extreme heat of July and August. I thrive in this kind of weather - not too hot, not too cold - and have felt incredibly motivated and inspired lately, both with my personal endeavours as well as a few style bits and pieces I've accumulated throughout the past few months.

THE LUST LIST

For the past few months I have been trying my best to practice a version of minimalism that I feel comfortable with and, I'll admit, it's been hard. I'd grown up thinking that when you started to make your own money you could buy whatever you wanted and be happy. But, as anyone with money will tell you, it doesn't always make you happy. Once your base needs are met anything extra seems to create a void in people that needs to be filled with stuff and most of the time we yearn for the most satisfying: food and shiny things.

MY FALL ACCESSORY PREP & FAVOURITES

For me, fall begins when it's September. Perhaps it's the aftermath of years in the educational system, but I can't help feeling like pulling out the stripes and corduroy as soon as kids go back to school and the weather drops ever so slightly. However, ever since I gave my wardrobe a big minimalist cleaning a few months ago, I've had a harder time piecing together outfits that aren't comprised of leggings and an oversized sweater. The struggle, I know!

HOW TO SEAMLESSLY CHANGE YOUR INSTAGRAM THEME

If you’ve been a reader of my blog or a follower of my Instagram for a while, then you might have noticed that I’m in the early stages of making a bit of a thematic change to my platforms. When I began blogging regularly I wanted to go for a brighter, lighter look in my pictures, seeing as that’s what most of the bloggers I followed were doing. I won’t deny that I like the look of bright photos with complimentary splashes of pink and green in them, however, I don’t think that aesthetic fully represents who I am and who I what I want to portray online.

DOES OUR HAIR DEFINE US AS FEMINISTS?

For the entirety of my life I’ve struggled with my hair and it’s intricacies. It started at a young age where I was given the quintessential bob just below the ears paired with uneven bangs. This look wouldn’t have been as much of an issue (considering Anna Wintour has sported the same look for years) if it hadn’t been for how naturally curly my hair is. With these somewhat embarrassing hairstyles it encouraged me at a young age to dislike not only the length of my hair, but also it’s natural texture, deeming it as not pretty enough. I would use a nightgown and strap it around my head to mimic the long, straight hair I’d seen in childhood movies and television shows. No one had curly hair without it being acknowledged as something rebellious and combating the status quo.

A SIMPLE VALENTINE'S LOOK

I don’t normally subscribe to the idea of Valentine’s Day, but I thought I would put out a more casual post discussing my usual makeup look on nights out. I would consider myself a creative person, except when it comes to makeup. I will usually stay with the same look for a few months before changing it around significantly. I only started wearing more makeup and experimenting with it in my early 20s, so there are many things I'm still learning. For instance, I’ve only just started dabbling with liquid foundation. I used to hate it, but now I'm slowly starting to recognize the appeal.
