30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 14 HANDMADE

So I went looking for something I handmade around my flat because today is the keyword ‘Handmade’. I love to make things, I’d say I am creative but whether I am any good at it is another story! The reason I love making things is because I personally find it fun and relaxing, so I tend to spend my time doing some arty things when I am not overflowed with coursework or doing seminar reading for uni! 🙂

The handmade item I chose is something I did last Summer after a day spent in London, my partner knows I love sharks so brought me a 3D wooden shark model kit to construct from the natural history museum so I spent a whole afternoon fixing all the pieces together to make a 3D shark and then I painted it! 🙂

Any things that you like to make or are proud of having made? Let me know! 🙂

What three things do you blog about most: I mainly write about art, books and beauty. But I have many passions so I always make room for fashion, lifestyle and music related posts to. (I like to call it ‘The home of creativity’). 

Name three words to describe your blog: Creative, inspirational and fun!

When did you first start blogging: I first started blogging just over a month ago (sometime in April) and I’m so glad I did!

Why did you begin to blog: You could say up until the point I first started blogging, my life hadn’t turned out quite how I’d envisioned. I needed a rather large distraction, a place where I could sit back, relax and be myself. As a child I was an incredibly enthusiastic writer, so I was a little shocked that blogging had never occurred to me before. On top of that I was also looking to build meaningful relationships with other bloggers (that’s you guys *cough* Mary *cough*). Overall though its my passions that formed ‘AmyloosWorld’.

What’s one blogging tip that you would share with other potential bloggers: I would say never ignore the other wonderful bloggers around you. We shouldn’t forget we’re all in the same boat here. Each and every one of us have something to share in the blogosphere, so just be selfless and help anybody in need of it (in any possible way that you can). You’ll meet some amazing people and maybe even build life-long friendships; in turn they’ll give you the love and support you need to make your blog a success. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Do you see yourself still blogging in three/five years time: (Is this a trick question?) OF COURSE! Writing comes naturally to me; I don’t think it will ever just disappear. I enjoy every second and want it to last forever! (Don’t you?).

What’s one of the best things about being a blogger: Doing what I love is extremely important to me; it keeps me excited and content (you have this duty that was never there before, and you want to fulfil it). On a more personal note, the best thing to happen so far to me as a blogger is meeting Mary and completing my first commission. I have to give her all the credit for interviewing me and promoting my work on her blog (cheers to Mary!). I also love the rush of happiness you get when someone new starts following. It’s heart-warming to know that people love reading what I write (a few years ago I would have laughed in my own face).

Has blogging helped you significantly in any other way: It’s helped me feel much more confident about my appearance and my sense of style. All of a sudden I’ve grasped who I really am (something I was previously unsure of). It’s certainly changed my life for the better. Even though I can’t predict the future, this journey of self-discovery is definitely worth the time spent.

My First OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) Post!

Okay so my partner brought me this Warehouse blazer and I love it so I thought I would do an Outfit Of The Day for everybody to see how I wore it today! This is my very first Outfit Of The Day post and I am hoping it will be the first of many to come if it receives good views 🙂

So why do I love my blazer so much? Well… My blazer is a lovely shade of beige with some light brown stripes on it, I love it because it’s such a beautiful colour and can be matched with nearly everything! But today I chose to wear a plain black vest and blue skinny jeans so I looked casual with a hint of formal. I really am a big fan of blazers as I love to look and feel professional and quite classy but I also think they’re great because you can wear them with almost anything even casual attire, so a blazer is always on the top of my favourite pieces of clothing list. In my wardrobe I have tons of blazers but this is my new found favourite, it’s soft and warm and fitted which make it perfect in my eyes at least!

What else I love about blazers is that you can wear it in many different ways and still look great, sleeves rolled up or rolled down, buttoned up or unbuttoned – you name it it’ll work 🙂
So this is how I went to University today and I felt happy with the outfit I chose, I didn’t really use many accessories as I always wear quite a few bracelets anyway and I have a special necklace on which I keep on 24-7. But never the less I love accessories especially if they are cute, unique, big or bold! 🙂

Anyway hope you liked my first OOTD post :)!
