This is why I could never be a fashion blogger. I like simplicity. I would just bore everyone to death.
PS: I was sick for a while, hence the lack of updates.
Today is Mother’s Day in Portugal so this is dedicated to my mom, because she truly is the best ever and has A LOT of patience to put up with me! Love you Mom!
Has it been a month?! Where did the time go, can somebody tell me?
Let’s see how I did with my April goals.
So that was an ok month, right? Decent at least.
Here are my May goals:
Cross your fingers, folks. Let’s see how this goes!
These have been my days. I’ve been pretty busy, between editing photos, (trying to) work and dealing with some personal stuff. Y’know, life. I haven’t been taking that many photos with my DSLR, but I’ve made it a point to use my phone to sort of document some of my daily life.
As you see there’s been a lot of delicious food (I’ll come back to that on another post, later this week), spending time with the fam, etc. Nothing too extraordinary.
I’m getting antsy for the arrival of real Spring. Sun, beautiful days, dresses! I think I’ll have to wait till May though.
What about you, how have you been?
Hope you’re having a good monday!
I’ve been meaning to do this for a while but as we all know, I put the PRO in procrastination.
Thing is I do believe making these lists will help me work towards certain things. I guess it has to do with the fact that if you choose perfectly reasonable and doable goals, there’s really no excuse not to do it. And there’s no getting discouraged which sometimes, with big ass goals, I do.
There’s nothing like a bit of self-improvement!
Working on: Getting organized. I’m the most disorganized person ever, so this is a big deal. I hate living in messy places though, so that’s some encouragement. :p
Thinking about: How grateful I am for my family and that we are still together and healthy(ish).
Anticipating: The birth of my nephew, Lucas. My sister in law is getting very pregnant and in June I’ll finally meet our boy. I honestly cannot wait.
Listening to: Music! Finally! Let me explain. When I’m down I tend to not listen to any music. At all. Which is really awful, I know, but I just don’t care for it. One of the many bad things anxiety/depression does to me. Yeah, that’s a talk for another time.
Eating: Healthy food! Or trying at least. I ate like crap for months but I finally had enough when I noticed my jeans were getting tight. I don’t have money to buy a new wardrobe thank you very much. I’ll just work a little harder at the gym and eat a little better and things will go back to normal.
Wishing: I had money to visit all my friends abroad, because I miss them all like hell.
ALSO, as you may have noticed from the pictures I am now on Instagram! Add me if you’d like, I’m sure I’ll make quite a few updates there: dianaramosphoto
Have a great day!
I always hesitated about creating a public blog because I know I’m not one of those people that can keep posting all cheerful posts with good quality photos all.the.time. I can’t. Because sometimes you have other things on your mind so you don’t even think about bringing your camera with you; other times you just aren’t in a good mood and who wants to read some girl whining about her problems?
There’s also the professional side of it. I know a lot of people come here to see my photos and that’s it. I don’t mind. That’s what I want. I WANT people to see my photos and like them. Makes sense as I’ve always wanted photography to be my livelihood, right? But some days, like today, I feel the need to write and not be obligated to show you just pretty pictures. Because life happens. And it’s not always perfect. I said I wanted this to be a personal blog and this is, unfortunately, part of it.
So I’m not going to say today was a wonderful day. It wasn’t. Waking up to hear someone you love in pain is something I really don’t wish on anybody. Thankfully, things are a little better now but I’m exhausted. Pretty sure I’m going to spend the rest of the day watching TV shows and trying not to fall asleep before 10pm.
Just one more thing before I go: Call your parents/family today and tell them you love them.
A saturday afternoon spent with the best company.
Thank you girls!
I thought I’d show you some parts of my room. This is where I spend most of my time when I’m home.
Hope your weekend is going great, mine will be somewhat quiet because something tells me that next week will be busy, busy!
