|Imagine if we only dreamt in black and white?|
For almost 5 years now I have been creating beauty videos as “AllThatGlitters21”, and have loved every moment. I have fluttered around other parts of the Internet (like a little bird. Or a mouse), trying out various social media sites and starting up a few blogs (remember that old AllThatGlitters21 blogspot? It’s still up and running it you want to have a read), but the one thing that has stayed absolutely consistent is my YouTube channel. Now… don’t go and panic, I am NOT going to stop making videos, but over the last year or so I have really gotten into reading written blogs. There is something really calming about starting off my day with a cup of coffee and a catch up of my blog reading list, and it has become an essential part of my routine. The more I fell in love with reading blogs, the more I realized that I wanted to be a part of that community. Written blogs give a completely different feel than watching a video on the same content, especially if it’s accompanied by pretty pictures. It is more concise, can be more artsy, and can be read “on the go” (although you can watch videos “on the go” as well, I find it more difficult). Plus, I have always loved writing, and ending my day by writing up a post about something I love, whether it be a beauty product or something else entirely, seems very satisfying to me.
This comes at a perfect time as well because as many of you have noticed, ElleandBlair.com is currently down. We have not folded the website completely, but it is temporarily being rerouted to Blair’s YouTube channel while we redesign it. Being blog-less at the moment, I thought, “Why don’t I start a new project”? I’ve wanted to do this for a while, and it was actually one of my New Year’s Resolutions, so here it is.
Welcome to “Dreaming in Blush”, my new beauty blog. I’m sure this blog will grow and change with time, but for now it will be mostly beauty based with a sprinkle of fashion thrown in. As for the name, I read somewhere once that some people dream in color, while others only dream in black and white. I *think* I dream in color, because right when I wake up I feel as if I have a color on the edge of my brain, but then when I think about it harder it fades away and I can’t remember if it was color or black and white. Either way, it makes me feel like there is something a little magical about my dreams. Do you dream in color? If you could only dream in one color, what would it be? Mine would be blush… a soft pink, light as air, feminine color that lights up the room.
|Ahh... that's better :)|
I hope you enjoy it <3
