BLUSH TONES

by Anne Roshie


 IT IS OCTOBER 1ST LADIES AND GENTLEMEN....

                           MY ONE YEAR ANNEVERSARY!!! WOOP WOOP!!

      Time flies by so fast. Seems just like yesterday I was telling my friends how I would like to start a blog. It got to a point where they were like, “Well go on ahead already!!’ Lol

         I eventually took a plunge into the blogsphere, and a year later here we are!!!  Ofcourse, it’s had its ups and downs, and at times I felt like I got stuck in a rut. There wasn’t enough time, not being consistent…bla  bla bla. At times, the excuses can be miles long when you are not motivated enough to do something. Am glad I was passionate enough to have pushed through, and am hoping for many more years to come. I am still trying to figure things out here and there, it’s such a beautiful learning process.  With learning comes growth, am not where I was a year ago. I have met fun, interesting people along the way, gotten more inspiration, dabbled back into writing 101 so that these posts can look a little bit polished, attended my very first fashion week, the fantastic opportunity I got working with Kenyanvibe.com and….

           The BEST part is you, you who has been reading my posts (even if this is your first one lol).  You guys have been incredible and I couldn’t thank you all enough for sticking with me. Thank you for liking, commenting, sharing, posting, tweeting some of my anneconventional posts and musings. I always say that my style, though at times can be quirky or very nostalgic with retro vibes, is not for everyone, but if one can get a simple idea or some form of inspiration from one of my posts, then am extremely, extremely happy. 

             I have a few things lined up for the blog and am certain you will see a few changes, starting with how I put up the pictures. Talking about the pictures, apart from style and fashion questions I get, one of the most popular questions is, who takes your pictures?

       My wonderful siblings, and close friends do take the pictures. I will be giving credit to each and every one of them moving forward. They bear with me as I direct the shoots, search for a location, bother with the proper lighting, the list is endless. Their patience and support needs to be given credit. I Love each and every one of you guys!!

       It is true that in life, when you want to do something, you should just go ahead and start, for you never know where you will be a year from now. Be it a new fitness regimen, writing a new book, learning that language you’ve always wanted, or even starting a blog. It might not be easy at first and you might hit a few bumps along the way, but at least you started right?

 

       For todays look, I went for the retro vibe I had mentioned earlier. I wore a blush toned 80's dress with the cutest little shoulder pads. The shoes reminded me of my late shosho (grandmother) who had somewhat the same pair (no kidding!!), without the inches of heel of course. I couldn't forget the little peep-toe. They just seem to go together, throw in the stole and am a belle back in the day running her errands.

I hope you had grabbed a cup of tea or coffee through this very, very long post.

As always, thank you for stopping by and for your endless support.

Have a fabulous day!!
