Hey Ya’ll!

Just a pretty photo that I took last summer, which I added mostly so that this whole post wasn’t just pointless dither with no pointless photos.

Let’s just begin by saying how incredibly difficult it is to write an introductory blog post that is both witty, insightful, and informative.

Please excuse me while I do none of those things in this first post because 1.) My writing skills are a bit rusty these days (here’s hoping the whole blogging daily thing will help that), 2.) I really just want to introduce this dang thing because I’m pretty darn pumped about it, and 3.) It’s a Friday and even though I’m no longer a student or a teacher, Friday’s always lack in the use of my concentration, so…

All joking aside, this is *maybe* the 1,456th blog I’ve started. Most (all) of those blogs are out there somewhere, floating in the Inter webs, waiting to be found by you beauties and embarrass the h-e-double hockey sticks out of me. This one, though, has promise. As a newly minted 29 (!!) year-old, I’ve decided that I want to challenge myself in many ways before I become a crotchety 30-year-old, and writing more is one of those challenges. As is creating more, which I plan to share here, too!

If you made it this far, bless you, as I’ve definitely been ranting since paragraph one. I will now reward you with explaining my daily schedule that I hope to keep as your weekly, blog-viewing entertainment.

Mondays // FOOD DAY!- Mondays suck, so on Mondays I’ll be talking about food. If you know me, you know I love food, so here I will share exciting things like stuff I’m cooking, stuff I want to cook, and probably some tasty cocktail recipes, too. Fun!

Tuesday // BEAUTY STUFF!- I love makeup and I own 25 shades of varying pink lipsticks, so I’m definitely an expert. On Tuesdays, I’ll share some of my expert tips like what beauty Vloggers I’m watching, some high / low make up finds, reviews and suggestions, and things I’m on the hunt for (like the 26th pink lipstick to add to my collection).

ARE YOU EVEN STILL LISTENING?!

Wednesday // BOOKS!- I really love to read, and so I think it would be very awesome to share what I’m reading, and maybe even discuss some books with all you fun people. More developments on this one later.

Thursday // DIY DAY!- Sometimes I like to be crafty and make DIY stuff, and so it might be neat to share those things here. If you stick around long enough, you might see me reupholster my dining room chairs, which could possibly include me severely injuring myself with a staple gun. Stay tuned.

THERE’S A CANDY BAR WAITING FOR YOU AT THE END OF THIS POST!

Friday // COMMUNITY EVENTS!- As many of you know, Z and I recently located to a new part of the state, and so we are always looking for exciting things to do on the weekends. I can share those things here! With you! LUCKY YOU.

Saturday // ETSY SPOTLIGHT!- I have an Etsy shop (modesttypewriter.etsy.com) where I sell vintage things, but I also really love the Etsy community and support many of the makers financially (not like I own stock, but like I spend too much money on Etsy buying pretty handmade jewelry and soaps and stuff). I’m often shocked at how many people don’t know about Etsy, so I would love to spotlight the people I admire so that you all can admire them too!

YOU’VE ALMOST MADE IT TO THE END, THANK THE LORD ALMIGHTY!

Sunday // LOCAL MAKER’S SPOTLIGHT!- This may seem similar to the Etsy spotlight, but I want these posts to focus on local maker’s that live in the area/state and make a living off their craft. I know very many talented people that I want everyone else to know about, so I want to interview them with silly questions I create and post it here BECAUSE the handmade movement is close to my heart.

WHOO! You made it! Thank you and I love you (sorry, I was lying about the candy bar).

So if you haven’t realized it yet, or if you just skipped to the end because all that mumbo jumbo up there was too much for you to read, then here’s the jist: this here blog is a place for me talk about stuff I like, so if you think you might like the same things I do, follow me! At the most, I promise rambling and some grammatical errors, so it should be fun?!?

Love,

KT
