Continuity

8 Comments
Holy moly, long time no see! My sincere apologies for being gone like forever and not letting you know. It's not that I lack ideas or love, I felt so uninspired by the whole blogging idea and what it offered me. I decided to have a break for a week or two, but it turned out to almost 5 months!

I don't really regret those non-blogging months. I stopped focusing on it and do me the best way possible. Though I felt very guilty after receiving 'where are you?/did you quit blogging?' mails and not letting you know. I wanted to write about it, but I kept postponing it. Not knowing how I would say it. In the meantime I was also overly focused on school and I must say that I made the best decision ever. I've probably already said it here, but after I graduated I decided to study further and get my master in fine arts (graphic design). This made me realise that I love to create visuals. I love to create images, gifs, publications, posters, fonts... I love to communicate through visuals. 

As I look back, when I had that long ombre hair, I blogged about the vintage clothes I've bought, created big wish lists of shoes or other fashion related stuff, captured my adventures with my pink fisheye or ended each post with a song that matched my mood. Back then, I saw myself (or people saw me) as a 'fashion blogger'. Now, I totally disagree. I love arts, music or traveling way more than fashion. But hey, it has been a big deal of what's shaped me as a person. 

What I want to say is, that I don't want to stop. Those almost-5-months-of-non-blogging made me realise a few things: I want to create visuals, encourage and inspire people, communicate with likeminded peeps, use my voice to advice and influence, share my experiences... I want to continue. Whether through blogging, social media or IRL. Oh we shall see. So thanks if you stick around, if not that's cool too. No matter what, you're all pretty awesome.

I know it's kinda vague, same with the future/life (oh so deep, lol). I could write pages about it, but I'll spare you that! Here's a quote from Martin Margiela (i-D magazine, 1998) to sum it all up.

Shoes- Keds, Vintage Leather Jacket- Docks Caviar, High Waisted Jeans- Dr. Denim, Sweater- Monki

Okay, my wardrobe looks for most part 90% black, but my shoe collection does have a lot more colour. For example these pretty ones from Keds. Platforms with a rusty metallic colour and a la reptile vibe going on. Really like these, as I'm not fond wearing high heeled boots, these Keds are flat, comfy and give me some extra height. Oh and not to forget, very important, colour!

It's December guys! Crazy how time flies. I'm so looking forward for my christmas vacation and the holidays, because it has been pretty hectic lately. All my energy goes to school and if I have a free day, I prefer too rest and stay away from my laptop. So I think that this vacation will do some good. I'll have the time to focus here. I want to find a way to make it work with school!

Next to that, I'm quite excited that vlogmas has started, haha. It's pretty funny and entertaining to see someone document their whole day. Who likes to follow vlogmas too? And from who? Sunbeamsjess, Beautycrush (Samantha Maria) are the one I really follow. Leave your picks in the comments below, please!

Love, Doris
