HOW DO PEOPLE NOT CRY READING THIS BOOK?
I have to hide it, I keep crying each time I read it to Baby Bun.
It’s crazy how I tear up.
I don’t even want to, and I tell myself: NO. NOT THIS TIME. Get it together!!!… always ends in tears.
Reading about the picture perfect life of Instagram royalty makes me both slightly envious but also.. a little sad.
Basically, their childhood is on display for everyone to see.
I have been asked numerous times by my own family and friends who have no idea I even have this double online life, to do all of that with Baby Bun and blog, etc… but I’ve pretended to play like I am a techno-moron and have no idea how to do any of that.
“Oh? What’s that? Who has time for Twitter, really…”
“What’s Instagram? I’m not on it.”
I guess I just don’t want to steal his childhood (I’m sort of confused about how I feel about it, to be honest) but that money.. DAT MONEY!!! $_$…
And it seems like it’s fun for them now, but what happens when they get older? I’ve heard horror stories about famous children wishing their parents had respected their privacy.
Who knows what’s right or wrong?
I just know that I don’t want Baby Bun on display for now. If/when he gets older and wants to be part of any of this, it will be him asking and not me doing it without his permission.
Although, if you were to ask my partner, he’d be all over the money like: YEAH I WANT TO BE FAMOUS. BRING IT ON. CHA-CHING!!!
He doesn’t know what it really means to give up your privacy, I think. I’m a little more sensitive to all of that, so I hesitate. A lot.
DAMN IT, TRUMP IS RUINING MY BUSINESS
With the uncertainty of the U.S., companies are not hiring. I had so much interest and demand when I finally put myself back on the market not even 3 weeks ago, and now it’s died down into a whisper.
Companies in Canada are in lockstep with what happens in the U.S., and these travel bans where U.S. folks are fleeing to Canada for refuge* has caused a lot of companies to get cold feet.
They don’t know what’s happening, what he is going to do next, and they’re clamping down on budgets for reserve funds for any problems that may arise.
This is so frustrating.
The stress has mounted in my head, and now I am trying to breathe in good thoughts and breathe out the stress.
This visualization, as stupid as it sounds, has really helped me lately.
*H/T to Revanche.
Breathe. I can do this. I’m glad I have money saved. I just need to start doing cheaper creative pursuits with my time than shopping.
SUPER BELATED, BUT THANK YOU <3
Look what I got from a lovely reader who knows my love for map-printed paraphernalia well! 🙂 Thank you.. Baby Bun loves the bear by the way.. it smelled great!
This is a travel planner! Would be great for this year’s trip:
This is a pouch:
Thank you so much. You’ve fed my #wanderlust 😉
THESE ARE ALL MY SCARVES, ORGANIZED
These are all the silk ones, I’ve made about 9 of the ones below. Post on that coming up soon.
These are my more colourful pieces:
And these are thiiiiick pieces, a lot of them Kate Spade (the maps like this pink one), and natural thick silk or wool woven on looms by hand:
I also picked up some studs online to dress up my things instead of buying something new.
SPEAKING OF FASHION, WHAT IS THIS?
I thought yoga pants as everyday clothing was bad, but it has gotten worse in my absence apparently…. I saw this on the metro the other day and thought:
What is the world coming to?
I have never been someone to dress casually … EVER… but this is really too much for me. Yoga pants and hoodies, with HOUSE SLIPPERS?
Oh please. Please let this be over soon and the wave of dressing a little more formally come back into our culture.
At least JEANS. Please, can we just wear JEANS?
What killed me is that she was a stunning woman, and she had the most amazing camel jacket on (I coveted it hard), but the rest of the look was just.. sad.
I will admit to wearing crappy clothes under a great jacket and boots (on occasion), but you will never see me whip off the jacket and announce it.
