Being Real

Outfit Details: Pretty sure everything is from Tilly's. Cute stuff and great prices!

The more I blog and the more I build relationships with fellow bloggers, the more I want to make sure they know the real me. I want to make sure that the portrayal my blog gives of me, my life, is genuine. And we all know, life isn't always easy. As I continue to get more comfortable with you, I can feel myself getting more open. I'm no longer afraid to share my fears and my struggles with you and that's a special feeling!

In other news: I got bangs! I have been wanting them for over a year and I finally got the courage. I actually like them and plan to maintain them  rather than the "ok I did it now I'm going to go through the awful growing out stages". I feel like they're "me." The real me. ;]

  2. I love that outfit, and the bangs are so cute! I've always debated bangs, but maybe I should just go for it!

    I have a lot of trouble opening up and being "real" on my blog as well. It's something I want to work on. I hope we can inspire each other to do that!

  9. I did the SAME DARN THING with bangs! Debated them for about a year, finally did it, and now I don't think I'll EVER go back! :) My latest post is about making blogger friends too, can I share? http://annadeloresphoto.blogspot.com. XO and happy Tuesday, Julie! :)

  10. So interesting! I, on the other hand, try to only let my blog reflect the POSITIVE parts of my life. It was one of my reasons for starting it, truthfully. I was moving across the country and anticipating some hardships, so I thought that a blog would be a good way to make me sit down and appreciate the good things that I had going on, since I'm someone who tends to focus on the negative.

    P.S. Love the bangs!

    1. Thanks for the input! While I definitely think my blog is a positive place, I also think that how one deals with their struggles can show even more of a person's true character. That is a side of myself I want to share with my readers occasionally.

  16. Yay!! Bangs look lovely on you! I loves me some bangs.. had em all my life. I alternate between full across and swoopy... stickin' with the swoop right now :)

    P.S. I love what you said about opening up and being genuine. It's definitely a process becoming comfortable enough with your readers to let them know the real you. Thanks for being real, girl!

  17. LOVE the bangs on you!!!! You're amazing! Always be yourself. :) :) :)

  18. I feel the exact same way. Although people usually only like to read the positives, it's nice to know that there's a human being behind it all. It's nice to not be so positive sometimes and show the more vulnerable side.

    Love that dress and belt!

  20. *I* find sharing easy, because that's just who I am. However, I know that MANY people can have a hard time opening up, especially online, so I am very very happy to hear that you are. It's a bold step - and an important one. I've got your back, should ever you need a supporter or listener. *hugs*
