I'm getting bored...

Lately I've been getting bored. Not of blogging or my blog... just of other blogs and the 'blogging world' in general. I've noticed I've stopped commenting as much as I used to. And I used to comment a lot! But lately it's just all so boring. I don't know if its because it's been a long winter or what? ...but damn!

I have my Bloglovin' feed open right now, I follow about 100 blogs, (so really I only get regular posts from less than half because blogs die...) and as I'm scrolling through the newest posts I find that I'm not clicking on many.

It just feels like I keep seeing the same thing every week... Here's pictures of things around my room. Here's part two of pictures of things around my room. Here's pictures of me in my outfit and everything is c/o, but here's a link so you can have it too for 20% off. Here's a review on something I never use but I got it for free, so here ya go! Here's a tutorial/DIY that's been done a million times but I'm going to pretend like I just came up with it and everyone will comment about how it's so clever. (Or better yet!) Here's a tutorial on how to do something that everyone already knows how to do. Here's another wishlist post. Here's a post about something that's very popular online right now and everyone's already talked about it but...me too! Okay, I think you get the point, Haha.

Just to be clear, I'm not saying I've never done any of the stuff listed above. I know I'm not perfect. I have worked with companies before but its very far and few. I don't post DIY/Tutorials often, especially that I feel are already very well known. But I'm not here trying to make money. I feel like that is part of the problem. Once you start making steady money from your blog you do anything to keep it up or make more. I'm just getting real bored of seeing the same posts from everyone. Everyone's talking about the same things and everyone's trying to make money/get free shit.

I keep thinking maybe I need a break from blogging but that can't be it? I love blogging. I like making posts, I like looking back at old posts and seeing what was happening last year. And I like interacting with people online. I actually want to post more, but I don't have much else going on right now, so I just stick to Instagram. So what is it? Maybe I am burnt out. Maybe I need to delete some blogs off my feed? Maybe I need to start following blogs that are more like mine...smaller and not as known.

I feel like the blogging world has been slowly going down hill the last few years. People are trying too hard, Everyone's trying to make everything look perfect so companies will work with them. Your home shouldn't look perfect. It shouldn't look like it belongs in a magazine. It's okay if it looks like people live there, haha. It doesn't feel real anymore. And I know it's not every blog that's like this... maybe just the 'big' blogs, the well known ones...

Has anyone else gone through this? or maybe you're feeling this too. It can't just be me?!

Review: February Movies

Jupiter Ascending 
To tell you the truth I was not interested in seeing this movie at all. (which means I went into this one with super low expectations) To me it looked like a movie I would eventually see on Netflix. But Justin really wanted to see it and I was just in a mood to get out of the apartment. This movie, felt very over the top. Mainly the soundtrack... the soundtrack was WAY too much for this movie. A few minutes into the movie the first 'fight/battle' scene was happening and all I could focus on was how out of place the music was. I feel like you should never really notice music in a movie... It should never take away from you watching. The only way you really do notice the music is if its really good and spot on. Or if it's really out of place....Best way I can describe the music/soundtrack in the movie... it felt like the music belonged to a movie that was about God or religion. Like, good vs evil...fighting for mans soul. you know what I mean? A few times I was laughing at it, and even Justin was nodding his head. Later on in the movie there was a whole section that felt like we were watching a star wars movie... so weird.
Anyways other than all that, it was nothing super special or great about this one. It was just a meh movie that was trying to be something really epic and great?

Recommend? No
Re-watch? No

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge out of Water
Ahh! The new SpongeBob movie! I wanted to see this one opening night (in a nicer theatre) but that never happened. We saw it a week or two later in our regular theatre. And it was awesome!! I don't have anything bad to say about this one. The animation was great, the characters translated well from 2D to 3D, it was weird, it was funny and it was surprising! I don't think I've laughed that hard in a theatre in a very long time. There were a bunch of kids seeing the movie too and I feel like we were laughing the most, haha. Definitely go see this one if you're a fan of SpongeBob. You will leave the theatre happy and in a great mood.

Recommend? Yes
Re-watch? Yes

Hair appreciation: #1

I keep meaning to take proper pictures of my ever changing hair but I always forget or make up excuses. Well, no more excuses! I just want good quality photos of my hair. So here are some 'nice' pictures of my current hair, which is a mix or orange, pink and red. but with each wash it gets a little more orange.
I took way too many pictures like this! I just think it looks so cool!!
In about a month I plan to change my hair again. Usually I wait about 2 - 3 months before doing my roots and touching up the colour... but I want to try something a little different, we shall see how that turns out. Wish me luck. :]
