The watch isn’t pictured on me because I still had to resize it to fit my tiny wrist, but it’s from Shoe Dazzle. It’s a really cheap watch, but it’s a great accessory to really pull your outfit together. What? No pictures of food nor recipes? Yeah, well that’s why I created a “filler” category in the first place. Testing out my selfie-taking abilities, I pulled out my tripod & remote to capture my look/vanity/narcissism. I think I took about an hour trying to take pictures of myself, racing to get decent shots before the sun went down. I felt pretty dumb posing by myself … for myself, so I doubt I’ll venture with this again because it was such a huge waste of time. Next time I have a decent outfit, I’ll just try to coax Josh into taking pictures of me. He just has to be patient enough to learn how to use my camera. It’s really not difficult, people just prefer to point & shoot as if a zombie couldn’t do that. Fashion blogging isn’t my cup of tea–or else you’d see me do it more often–but I wanted to photograph my outfit & makeup on my first Valentine’s Day with Josh.
Regardless of the off-topic post, it’s important to feel free to do embrace what you love to do most & to feel happy with yourself. If you’re not happy with what you’re doing, then move on & do something that makes you feel passionate about it. Sometimes that takes a bit of experimenting to find yourself. While I was taking photographs of myself, I knew that fashion blogging just wasn’t my thing. I find much more delight taking photos of food I create, but if you’re the opposite of me, embrace it & don’t let some hooligan bring you down. I hear you loud & clear, less pictures of my face, more pictures of food with recipes. I’ll deliver like Pizza Hut, just keep your panties on!
