I’ve pretty much come to terms that I’m the worst person who should be running a blog. I’m terrible about keeping it updated, I’m too ambitious about my blog series, and I’m so incredibly indecisive about the way this blog should be ran that I spend too much time planning, and no time writing. There are times I want to create profound and intellectual substance, then there are times I want my posts to be light and straightforward. I can’t make up my mind, therefore I should probably just find a new hobby.
However, I can’t give up that easy. There’s a reason I have this blog. I don’t have a single clue what that reason is, but I’m not done trying to find out. Therefore, my new goal: don’t make any goals. Post what you want, when you want. The moment I make a plan, it’s destined to be unfulfilled. I know it sounds like I’m harsh on myself, but I’m really just trying to be honest.
I might as well change the name of this blog to, “This isn’t really a blog, just a collection of random posts,” but I’ll probably just stick with “Whale You Be My Friend.” (It’s catchier). There will be no limits, no restrictions, no deadlines, no rules. I’ll understand if you don’t want to follow my blog anymore, don’t worry, I won’t be offended. But if you decide to try this out with me, maybe it won’t turn out too bad?
Ok well that’s pretty much all for now. I guess there will be a new element of surprise of when and what I post. That might be exciting, right?
Hi there folks! It’s finally time to for me to tell you all how excited I am to launch my new blog design today! I’ve spent a lot of time freshening it up, so I hope you guys like it. Same name, different look. One of my dearest friends has recently decided to revamp her blog and has inspired me to do the same (her blog is karissasimplifies.com if anyone is curious to check it out).
I’m also going to bring the blog content in a slightly different direction over the course of the next few weeks. I can’t divulge everything right now – partly because I’m still in the planning stages of what’s to come, but I can tell you that I’m extremely excited about the big picture!
A little change is good sometimes, right? As a wise man (or wise woman) once said, “Don’t be afraid of change. You may lose something good, but you may gain something better.” Since that’s been my recent attitude about life, I thought I’d carry it over to my blog.
So please stay tuned for new posts to come. If you’re not already following my blog, you can do so (I mean, if you like me and stuff) by entering your e-mail on the sidebar.
Bring out your playful side this holiday season with some trendy animal sweaters! From owls to cats, these graphic sweaters have translated into a fun, winter trend.

Since I received an overwhelming response from my “DIY Style” blog post below, I thought I’d follow up with a “DIY Home Decor” post. I love finding new ways to make a “do it yourself” project out of simple home decor pieces. I know there are thousands of ideas all over the web, but here are 10 clever ideas that stood out to me:
5. Reclaimed Window Coffee Table – Might take a little more effort than the other DIYs, but the payoff is worth it. Take an old cabinet (or find one at a thrift store) and add some legs on the bottom to get a gorgeous coffee table with storage space.
When you make your own DIY clothing articles and accessories, you’re really adding a unique and personal touch to your wardrobe. And lets face it, it’s fun! DIY is all the rage now, and I can definitely see why. So, if you’re feeling crafty on a random Sunday afternoon, here are some DIY ideas to create cute, one-of-a-kind looks.
1. Floral Pocket – Cut a floral pattern and sew it onto a basic tee to dress it up. Easy peasy.
My most recent style obsession right now are backs with sass. Open backs, cute cutouts, bows, straps, low cuts and more. This playful new trend allows women to show off parts of their back in a fun way. Just make sure to expose the right amount of skin. If it’s low in the back, it doesn’t need to be low in the front.
Blouses, skirts & maxi dresses, the sheer trend is hot for summer. Watch out though because this trend has some fine lines between classy and trashy. Make sure you’re not revealing your black bra in the office.
