Hello lovelies! Remember me? I used to have a blog and I used to post every once in a while, but then the aliens kidnapped me and I couldn’t possibly post anything from the spaceship could I?!
Ok, I’ll cut the crap and get to the point! I saw a movie the other day that had a great impact on me. Julie and Julia with Meryl Strip, have you seen it? Well, it’s based on two true stories. It combines the story of Julia Child and how she became a famous chef and author and the story of Julie Powell, who in her 30’s decides to cook her way through Julia Child’s book about French cuisine and blog about it (524 recipes in 365 days). The movie was great and Meryl Strip was amazing as always, but there was something more to it for me. It gave me a great idea about my blog. You know, I am kind of like the girl in the movie who finds herself being bored easily and never finishing what she starts. So I thought that I could try to do something similar. I am not going to cook french recipes for 365 days, no no! Don’t get me wrong I love cooking but this is a blog about make up and fashion and those are my passions.
So I came up with an idea: I am going to post everyday for 365 days about what I wear and what my make up is. Something like an OOTD and FOTD combined, but every day for a whole year.
I always need something to motivate me and this is perfect. Because putting it out there makes it important and serious and I will feel embarrassed if I don’t go through with it.
So, the rules are:
I will be posting every day for 365 days. There will be pictures of the outfit and pictures of the make up and listing of the clothes and products used for the specific look.
My looks will consist of:
Seasonal looks (beach outfits or mountain - excursion outfits etc)
depending on my mood or my routine. Sometimes it’s going to be the look that I wore at a party, sometimes a look that I wore at the supermarket or maybe a look just for the sake of the project (in days that I have nowhere to go).
This project starts today, the 4th of September 2010, and it will end next year (4/9/2011). There will be another post today, the first post of the project.
I hope it will go as planned and that you will like it. Tell me what you think and give me any other ideas if you have about this.
My first pics are not so great, but I promise they will improve. I will be continuously experimenting with lighting and backgrounds and camera settings so as to achieve the best result possible.
Can’t wait for your comments!
