I thought it would be good to write some things down, some of my thoughts lately. I usually forget to share my thoughts on blog but I absolutely love to read these type of posts on other blogs. I’ll try to write these posts every few months, because I usually have strong opinions on some topics so it would be good to write them down in these type of posts. Let’s start!
Instagram! I’m totally off instagram, I have to be honest. I don’t scroll through my feed anymore, it’s just so annoying to me. I have to force myself to upload new photo at least once a week to stay relevant, but it doesn’t bring me joy like it used to. I don’t know why, but instagram doesn’t do it for me anymore. It used to be my favorite social media site, well the only one I used pretty much but it’s over now. I hope I’ll get back into it, but my hate relationship with instagram is going three months strong, so we’ll see.
While we are on topic of Instagram, I got rid off all instagram pods. I used to be part of 5 insta pods, but I left all of them. When you think about it, who cares about likes or comments on photos. Does it make my day better? No, not really, so why do I need to be part of those insta pods that are pretty much lame if you think about it. People are forced to comment and like your photos because you do the same for them. I don’t want to like a photo that I find ugly, I’m sorry, but not sorry you feel me? Isn’t “like” option there so you can show support to someone that gave you some sort of inspiration or you just like the way photo looks? When I left all insta pods my likes and comment went super down, because those people are not all of the sudden interested in my feed. Do you see my point?
Let’s talk about blogging world a little bit! I saw many bloggers ranting about engagement and views part of blogging. Can’t agree more, it’s just a dry period I suppose. My views dropped so badly, like it’s a bit embarrassing. It makes you feel a bit weird, because you are giving your best but there is not engagement like it used to be. Still I don’t mind it too much, people are gonna read what they like. I thought summer is the time of year when everyone reads blogs more, but looks like everyone went to youtube.
Summer in Bosnia is so weird. We legit have days when it’s 14 degrees and next day it is 32 degrees. It’s so on and off, it’s making me go crazy. It’s raining every freaking day, like is this even summer? Still didn’t decide on my summer holiday, I don’t think I’ll go anywhere to be honest. I might go to sea side for like 5 days, just to get some sun and swim a little bit, because I love swimming so much.
I’ve been reviewing many products on my blog lately. I feel like it’s getting too much, so I have to slow down with reviews but what can I do when those posts are the ones people always ask for. Also I’ve been trying many new products, shopping addiction is real you guys. I’ll try to switch up blog content more, but I don’t know I like reviewing products and whole process of testing new things.
I realized that I’m an addict. I’ll try to explain it, but I’m not sure will it work well. Let’s say it like this I have addictive personality. That means that I get addicted to certain things and behaviours. For example I’ve been addicted to The Weeknd’s music for last 4 years of my life and I still am. I have the same breakfast every freaking day and I’m still not tired of it. I get addicted to working out to the point it starts hurting me emotionally. I’m addicted to researching conspiracy theories, I know so much about the “secret” world that most people would think that I’m insane. When you have addictive personality and you are curious in everything you suffer because your mind is working full time thinking about stuff that’s happening in world and honestly it’s not worth it. It’s good to be educated and informed, but sometimes price is too high to pay. I basically turn everything into addiction, believe me!
Everyone knows that I’m a bag addict also. My collection is just not normal, like I can’t possibly wear all of those bags at the same time. Still this month I got two new bags and spend so much money on them, like I could actually go on proper vacation with that money. Did I make right decision to spend so much on bags? At time it felt right, but now I’m regretting decisions I made. Like I love both bags, as a bag addict my heart is full of love for them haha. But let’s just say it like this, I could live without one of them.
I had giveaway on my Instagram a week ago and it was complete fail. I gave away 30 euro gift card and only 4 people entered. Like are you joking me? It honestly hurt me so much, because 30 euros is not a small amount of money, dude it’s 60 in Bosnian money. So yeah I wasted money that I could use for I don’t know whatever. I wasted so much money for something that turned out to be complete fail. I ranted on the whole giveaway disaster in Insta live, that turned out cringey also haha, it was such a good time.
The whole reason why I was so mad for the whole giveaway thing is that people enter all sort of stupid giveaways. I recently saw one giveaway where girl gave away makeup that she doesn’t use any more, like seriously? She gave away lipsticks, powders, blushes that were used??? There were more than 100 entries. One more giveaway I saw, girl gave away eye shadow palette sample. You know those lab samples that come in see through thin plastic, there were 300 entries. Why my giveaway went so poorly if those giveaways were complete hit?
Alright, I have many other thoughts lately but I’ll stop here. This blog post is already too long. I hope you enjoyed this post even though it’s a bit ranty and definitely too chatty. Thank you for reading. Let me know how are you doing? What’s been happening in your life lately? Have a nice day! xx
