Note: This is an old entry reposted from my old blog called Boudoir Angel on Tumblr. I'm reposting all of these old entries because I plan to delete my old blog and consolidate everything to this one. Some posts may have its text updated and/or reformatted slightly according to the platform change.
...I would like to thank Jessica Schroeder of What I Wore (http://whatiwore.tumblr.com/) for her Ultimate Guide to Blogging tips (http://whatiwore.tumblr.com/tagged/blogging) that inspired me to really make my Tumblr blog something just a touch more than mere venting.
I'm doing a little bit of remodelling (just a few blog posts in so this, I think, is really the best time for such a thing) particularly with the photos and improve on the text for future posts.
I'd taken creative writing back in uni but I never really mastered the art of writing as myself, so I would seriously like to take this "vanity outlet blog" of mine...well, seriously, and make it into something of a practice space for me to not just express my new-found love for and enjoyment of all things pretty (fashion or cosmetics) but to also to continue honing my skill as a nonfiction writer.

Update: Well, here I am really, just trying to look at how I used my nonfiction voice back then and how I want to proceed from this point forward.
I finally got myself a DSLR (for which I still owe my husband more than just a pretty penny) and I will be using my blog to hone both my writing skills and my photography skills. I am hoping to see an improvement from my photo-taking from back then up to now.
I should note though that I do believe that it's not the equipment but how you use it. I shall be using two things primarily: my iPhone 6 (named Juliet) and my Canon 7D Mark II (named Viola). Yes, I do have a thing for naming gadgets, hahaha.
I'll be remodelling this at some point soon. For now I shall busy myself with copy-pasting/importing old blog entries and maybe adding updates to some of them when I feel an updated commentary applies.
