When the thunder calls for me, next time I'll be braver

PN and I managed to cross another thing off our summer to-do list, which was to finally invest in a volleyball.  We settled for a Mikasa outdoor volleyball, which made the most sense for us since we normally play in a beach setting.. but it was hard not to feel slightly disappointed after seeing all the colours that indoor balls come in!

An another note, my one year blog anniversary has rolled around! I can't believe it's been a year since I started blogging. Although I don't write about too many personal things, I find it extremely soothing to write about my mini adventures around the city.  I'm so grateful to all those who take the time out to read my blog, and I'm even more grateful for those of you who have subscribed. I want to do so much more with my blog, but my lack of HTML skills, as well as the absence of Adobe Photoshop, is certainly a speed bump down this road... anyone able to help a sister out?! I want to do an overhaul on the blog layout, add a banner of some sort, and maybe even come up with a catchy name for this baby. It doesn't help that I'm surrounded by such cute blog names such as Fast Food and Fast Fashion, The Little Dust Princess, and House of Black Crows.

I've been coming up with so many ideas on how to wear this ASOS thigh harness! It's a great way to add some edge to any outfit. I thought it went well with the feminine details of the knit shorts. As a huge thank you to all my readers, I've decided to give my extra harness away! It's a one-size fits all item, and you can see in the last photo that it wraps around your waist, haha. It'll be a brand new harness, although it won't be in its original packaging. I got rid of the plastic sleeve thinking that I would keep both of them, but I wouldn't want to seem selfish, :).  This giveaway will be open internationally.  All you have to do is be a public Google follower, and enter a comment down below. The giveaway will end one week from today, on Thursday June 9th, 11:59 EST. I would love some feedback in regards to the blog.. i.e. blog content, layout, etc. Any and all suggested are greatly appreciated!

What I'm wearing: Silence & Noise silk blouse, H&M crochet shorts, ASOS thigh harness, Old Navy t-strap sandals

i'm happy with the layout you have now. clean and simple, just the way i like it.

LOL i thought the thigh harness was a thong of some sort for a second in the last picture.

i like lifestyle blogs, so i enjoy reading about daily adventures and what not. i'm curious and i guess a little nosy so a look into people's lives is always interesting to me. :)

I think your layout is fine the way it is. Your pics are not too big not too small. You make me want to get a better camera for blog pics hahaa =p

I haven't played volleyball since grade 9 gym O_O OHHH we should totally have a beach day this summer and play vollyeball!!!!!

The Little Dust Princess said...

Aw thanks for the shout out! My blog name is my Chinese name sorta. haha I honestly like your simple layout. I've always been irked by the amount of ads though. Maybe put a banner at the bottom of your page and one at the bottom of your sidebar. Putting it in between is too much imo!! : )

And your search bar is 5x too long and you should put your "ABOUT" somewhere else. : ) Just my suggestions, don't need to take them!

and omg I think I told you that I have the same leg harness. That thing is so hard to put on!!!!!! I think we have the same taste ; ) Was gonna get that blouse too, but in diff colour.

anyway..not entering your giveaway since I have one already!

Elle said...

I agree with A and Helen, your blog is actually quite perfect the way it is. It's easy to read and maneuver around, maybe it's because I like simplicity more. I can't believe it's almost a year, I still remember the reason why you switched to blogging because you sort of lost your inspiration for YT vids. It's all good, I got to follow you one way or another lol! Early congrats to you =]

Dianne said...

Ahhh, thanks for the shout out! Made my night and actually put a huge smile on my face :D

And I like your blog template! Actually I think we're using the same one LOL. I believe its best to keep a simple blog and let our photos do all the colour splashing, or else everything looks messy. A suggestion for a banner: you can crop a section from one of your outfit photos and turn it into a banner?

Love your leg harness btw! Have you checked out It continuously inspire me to do a bit of DIY-ing :D

MeiBelle said...

Happy Happy Blogsary baby girl!! To many more!

I think the only thing I would like to see is a banner of some sort, or like a logo or something at the top. I love the look book styles and your fashion so don't ever stop it!

<3 u much

Jessica Mac said...

your silence & noise blouse is so adorable. been looking for something similar with no luck -____-

don't worry, i lack HTML skills as well and am stuck with a banner-less blog.

Kelly said...

I cant believe its been a year since I've started following your updates! I love reading your blog! It's amazingly done with the cute titles!

I love your picture clothing hauls and your Outfit of the Days, as well as the restaurant reviews. I hope you continue blogging because you've definitely inspired me to maybe start one! (:
