A Light Bulb Moment

     I once in awhile get an idea that I really like, and really want to pursue. Most of the time, that doesn't happen. I end up forgetting about it, or deciding that it's a bad idea.
     My recent idea is one that involves most of my family. This fact makes it quite a bit less likely to happen. My genius idea was to have a garage sale, (which is actually something my family has wanted to do, but has been delaying doing for awhile.) and donating all the money we make to cancer research. I feel like the relief of getting all the extra useless things out of the house will make everyone feel better. I already have a garbage bag full of things I don't need.
     Cancer is something that is close to our hearts, not only because it's such an awful disease... But also because my dad's brother passed away a few years ago from bone cancer. We were all devastated, and it affected us all very much. Therefore, I feel like donating money to such a cause would make us all feel better about ourselves.
     But really, who knows if this will ever happen.

Fashion - 0001

I am a fashionista, there is no point in trying to deny it. I live for fashion. I love fashion magazines, but I find that some things they post are absolutely atrocious. When I was at the hospital last week, I was going through a fashion magazine to pass the time, and they were showing an entire photo shoot with high heeled sandals and socks. socks! I do think that, if done well, socks and heels can look amazing, except every single one in this magazine I found absolutely revolting. I find that socks and heels can look hot, but most of the time it looks trashy and ugly.
I'm getting off track again. The point of the post was to share why I love shopping so incredibly much. I don't think it's the typical reasons like the feeling of owning something new, or the fact that new combinations can be made (though I do love that too!). No, the reason I love buying clothes so much is because I so much enjoy finding a place for them in my wardrobe. I love how buying a color I don't normally owns adds another piece to my cupboard.
I recently bought a pale, floral dress, which is completely out of my comfort zone. I tend to enjoy wearing dark colors to contrast my pale skin. Let me tell you, the floral amongst all the dark colors was absolutely beautiful.
That's all for now, I hope everyone has a lovely Friday evening!


Since this is my first post, I feel the need to explain myself. My name is something that I will not share, and possibly the only thing I will not share. Since having no name makes this less personal, I will give myself a new name. I have always loved the name Juliette, and if I ever have a daughter, I shall probably name her that. I have recently turned 18, and yes, I can remember the whole night. I am the youngest of 4, and I'm Canadian, English, and Irish.
As you can already tell from the name of the blog, and the short paragraph I have already written, I am a hopeless romantic. I have always wanted love, that was always my dream. The purpose of this blog is to chronicle parts of my life I want to remember, or even just everything. This is actually my third blog; the first being a blog of fashion and design, and the second being a blog of photography that I found across the internet.
Welcome to the life of a romantic, you will witness both my adventures and my troubles, and I can promise you much more.
