Hey everyone! Just want to take a second to welcome all the new followers on here. I really appreciate you and it makes me so happy that you enjoy reading what I have to say (even though it’s mostly nonsense lol). One of the things I love to do is to write. Whether I’m good at it or not is another story. This is just a creative outlet for me and I’m super grateful you guys enjoy what I’m sharing, so thank you.
Now can we talk about this photo?
Please tell me you see what I see, because I know it’s a crochet headscarf but these colours and the way it’s laying there… I also see a headless chicken LOL.
I love these little crochet projects that I’ve been doing lately. I’ve made a neck warmer, a headscarf and just recently, my second bucket hat! These smaller projects can be completed in a day and are as easily rewarding. Since I’m back at work full-time now, I don’t have free time like I used to. So starting a bigger project just doesn’t seem as exciting at this point. It’ll take me way too long to complete. I only get two days off a week and I have a ton of other hobbies that I have to keep up with as well (like this blog)! I mean, now that I’m thinking about it, I have our new podcast, my Instagram, this blog, reading/book club, crocheting, knitting, and jewelry-making that I want to accomplish on my days off. As well as spending time with my boyfriend and catching up with friends and family! It’s a whole lot. If we want to go even further, I also have to get groceries, clean the apartment and do laundry. There just isn’t enough time in a day! I seriously don’t know how I did all of this before the pandemic.
Anyways, we’re all just trying to do our best, right? It’s been tough and we have to go easy on ourselves. I wish I wasn’t so good at putting unnecessary pressure on myself, but I’m working on it!
So crochet headscarf or headless chicken?
It would be funny if these next few photos were of me with a headless chicken on my head. But lucky for me, they’re not! I honestly LOVE the headscarf trend for this upcoming season. I ordered another one off of Etsy that I can’t wait to share with y’all. It’s in that muted green colour that everyone’s wearing? Kinda minty? I love green SO MUCH right now. And you can probably tell just from the colour of the sweater I’m wearing! I thrifted this Chap’s sweater a couple of years ago. This year-long pandemic has made me lose all sense of time. Everything feels like forever ago. I just remember thrifting it and I know for certain that I haven’t gone thrifting in the longest time.
With this sweater, I just wore a pair of jeans. I honestly can’t remember what pair I wore. It has to be one of the two pairs that fit me right now lol. They have to be either my wide-legs from Topshop or my Levi “Balloon” jeans. The jewellery pieces are from Amazon, En Route Jewelry, and Mejuri. And I think that’s it for this look!
HEADSCARF – by yours truly
SWEATER – Thrifted
JEANS – Topshop or Levis (sorry lol)
NECKLACE – Amazon
EARRINGS – En Route Jewelry
If I haven’t mentioned this on my blog already, the beaded phone strap is also by me! Super easy and super fun! If you have lots of beads lying around the house, you should make one!
Again, thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it a lot.
I hope you’re all safe and well! Xx
