It feels like it was November just yesterday. A lot has happened and it’s been a pretty good month. The beginning of January will be hectic, so going to post this a little early. I can always edit if something super amazing happens between now and Tuesday anyway.
International Lolita Day with the local community in Portland was super amazing and I am very glad I was able to go. I already blogged about this event earlier this month, but it was one of my favorite things this month, so I had to mention it anyway. This is a close up of the print that I wore.
Since we are moving, and since this was the first year I didn’t live at home for Christmas, we did not decorate for the holidays. This is because I don’t really own any decoration yet (aside from my festive Meowchi plushes and some snow globes that I think I left at my Mom’s anyway), and also because of not wanting to rush to clean up the decorations. And so the Christmas Tree in Pioneer Courtyard made me super happy everyday when I was on my way home. It rains here in the winter instead of snow (or at least so far…) so I was able to take this picture of the Christmas lights reflecting off the wet ground.
I am also pretty happy about the Top 9 results for my three Instagram accounts. My aesthetic account is still mostly cats, but I am hoping that in 2019 and forward, I will keep the cats to my normie account. It was also private for a good chunk of the year, so I think keeping it public will help get more likes. My food instagram did pretty good too, and my normie account will certainly grow because clearly the internet loves cat pictures. I am not super obsessed with how many likes I get, but I am very glad that I have separated out the things that I post into three different accounts and hopefully this will help my accounts grow and be more cohesive.
My boyfriend made waffles for me this month. I have to brag about this. He doesn’t cook very often, but he makes damn good waffles. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Something else I tried this month was custom shampoo and conditioner from Function of Beauty. I saw lots of other bloggers and influencers sing it’s praises, and I would like to improve how my hair looks. On Black Friday, there was a coupon for it, so I am giving it a shot. I don’t know exactly how I feel about it yet, and I’m not sure if my hair has really improved during the last 2 weeks of use, but these things apparently take time.
Finally, for the last lab meeting of the year, my boss brought in all sorts of little snacks, including these very cute petit fours! The most festive of little cakes. At home, we didn’t really do anything special for Christmas (we ate frozen pizza and cream cheese wontons), so it was really nice to have something a little festive with my coworkers.
Thank you for following and reading my posts this year! I hope that I will have more fun and interesting things to post about in 2019, and not just complaining about how I want to buy everything from Angelic Pretty. ヾ(・ω・ｏ) ♡♡♡
