Are We All Too Superficial?

Hi guys!
So this will be one of those posts where I just ramble and ramble on about my thoughts on a certain topic. Obviously this topic is superficiality. Also, keep reading until the end (or at least scroll to the end) to see something exciting!

I've heard a lot of "you're shallow" or "you're superficial" for being a beauty and fashion blogger as I'm sure literally every other blogger on the planet has heard. I understand that I am being public about what I purchase and what I personally enjoy, but at the same time, aren't we all superficial to some extent? Don't you know at least one person who is so obsessed with having the latest iphone when their current one works perfectly fine? Or how about that friend that checks Perez Hilton on their phone 24/7. Would you call them superficial or shallow? How come it's okay to use those terms when it's focused on beauty and fashion, but it's not when it's used on celeb obsessed people or techies?

You could justify yourself by saying "the world's changing and technology is necessary" but that could honestly be said about anything and everything! In the end, the way that I see it is: we're all superficial! We're all shallow! That's what being human is! Everything our world offers takes away from what is truly important: Family, Friends, and Religion (if you believe in one). Jobs? They're distractions. Technology? Distraction. Everything is a distraction, but that doesn't mean that it's a bad thing! It's something we must accept and try to deal with. 

I know that this post was supposed to be about superficiality, but I want to challenge you guys to try and spend 30 minutes that you'd originally spend on something "superficial" on something meaningful. This could be skipping a Friends re-run to go on a walk with your dog or anything you want. It's time to get back to what's really important in life and I'm going to try and do it with you!

So now to that "special surprise" I have for you! I want to start making my posts a little more personal! Sure, I have my personal blog (which you should check out!), but I think it's going to add a more personal aspect to some otherwise bland posts! Okay, so here it is: For all of you who saw my daily vlogs, you know I'm OBSESSED with The Kitchen and on that show they do "Into it and Over it". This is something that I'm going to try add to some of my posts! It'll only be on the opinion posts like this one and if you guys like this I'll expand it to the makeup/outfit of the days and tutorials. 

In To It: not washing my hair as often! I've been a serious couch potato these past few days and I went three days without washing my hair! It's not something I'll do again, but it's nice to know I can skip a wash or three and be fine!

Over It: jello! I made a big container for after my wisdom teeth surgery and I honestly don't like it that much any more! Chocolate pudding is a ton better!

So I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments if you like the into it and over it section! Sorry it was so long!
Okay guys! I love you all!
xoxo

  1. OMG, that is why I won't tell any my friends about my beauty blog. I feel like they will all make fun of me and judge me!


    But, I don't think our blogs are that superficial. It might be promoting consumerism, and whatnot. But like that is like saying a makeup artist, or fashion designer is superficial. Can't beauty blogging have a certain art to it? Idk.

  2. haha I still haven't told my friends about my blog too! and I totally agree with you and I totally think that there's an art to beauty blogging! Plus, I think that if blogging makes us happy we should do it, but I just wish that sometimes non-beauty bloggers would understand where we come from and our side of it!
