Today is the first of November, a new month so it’s only befitting that today’s topic is something new about me. I struggled a bit here but you know you can interpret these themes any way you like, some are not even following the prompts just blogging every day. On today’s theme some are using it as way to introduce themselves but when put on the spot I’m like um not really much to tell, though there probably is. So I tried to find something different and all I could come up with is that I’ve changed my hair colour one whole shade from pink to purple, actually it’s both at the moment! And then I remembered after drafting a whole post about how I changed my hair that I actually have some new (sort of) interests.
The first one came about when I decided that I need to take some new photos of some of the stock, as my old photos were poorly edited and styled. So I had a little nosey at some shops who were doing well and realised that I need to work not only lighting my products better but also at styling them. When I was in Amsterdam recently I bought some Autumnal decorations to use in some of the photos and thus I discovered I can use my creativity in other ways such as prop and product styling.
So this is one of my first attempts.
And this led me to explore other design and styling ideas. I’ve been a plant lover and avid gardener since my teens. Although since moving to this flat I’ve been concentrating on trying to turn our concrete nightmare of a garden into a vegetable oasis, I’ve neglected the interior of the flat and so recently have been on a plant buying spree.
Poundland has been a goldmine recently for tiny cacti, also Sainsbury’s and Ikea have been good as well.
And then I remembered I have been wanting to make my own terrarium for ages now and managed to score some jars from Ikea. The round vase was from a charity shop.
So with my new props and plants I’m going to indulge in my new hobby of making terrariums for the flat, I have a few ideas as well for them but will share them when they are made.
And so that is my Day 1 entry for Blog Every Day in November and something new about me! (sorry it’s a little long) I hope you liked it can join me for the rest of the month, now I’m off to catch up on my #BEDN bloggers.
