4 Things.

Starting tomorrow, things will be a little bit different around here for awhile.  I'll be starting a 30 day photo challenge

As I've explained, the timing is ideal because 1) I want to experiment with other forms of expression and I've been stalling for too long, and 2) I have that test to take again and need to spend a minimum of an hour studying each day.  I didn't want to just disappear like I did last time, but I won't be able to write here as often.  I'm always inspired by blogs with beautiful photos and visual inspiration, so this will give me a chance to experiment with that in a more focused way.  Hopefully, you will get to see a different side of me.  Hopefully, I'll come out of it less afraid of myself.

This evening, I discovered another photo challenge going on over at Inspired by Beatrice Clay.  I've been following her on twitter for awhile, but I don't think I've ever clicked through to her blog.  Gasp.  I always get so excited when I find blogs like hers.  In her words, she writes about "truth and pretty things."  Be still my whimsical heart.  She started her challenge on August 1.  Definitely go check it out on  her blog and on her instagram @BeatriceClay.


Aliyah S. King, author and freelance writer, is hosting a 30 day posting challenge. When I read that I was like "Doh!" -  I was a month early!   But it all works out because I would not have been able to do it this month because of my studying.  She's asking writers to use the hashtag #30in30 and share their posts on twitter.  So, if you're a writer or blogger, I highly encourage you to join the challenge!  


I discovered another  new blog that has me smitten called Stylish Thought.  Here's an excerpt from the About page:

Stylish Thought™ believes that every young woman is a force to be reckoned with and empowering that force is our greatest mission! Stylish Thought™ believes in having a power color and a theme song that renders you invincible. We believe in being true to yourself and taking as long as you need to find yourself. We believe that style is personal, work should be filled with love and neither your life or sartorial choices are up for debate.

Stylish Thought believes the journey is less about the destination and more about the people you meet, experiences you have and happiness you create along the way!

Stylish Thought believes women can build the lives, careers and wardrobes of our dreams one stylish thought at a time!

For me, it was love at first sight.  Go check it out and browse through the archives.  Lots of girl power, motivation and solid advice.   All done very stylishly.  Run don't walk.
