about hello vashti
hey girl

I’m Vashti!

I am usually not wearing pants [mostly just at home], drinking coffee & sweet tea, obsessively cleaning my house, figuring out dinner for 3, running at the gym, trying to cut carbs, and overthinking ever single aspect of my life.

just to feel pretty.

Not sure you are a frequenter or you are new here but I recently decided that I wanted to start upping my game when it came to this little ole blog of mine.

I want to make sure that my readers know that there is effort put into it and while this was a hobby before, I really want to do this full time.  Writing and photography have always been passions of mine and this blog gives me the place to perfect the two.  

Last week I had no intention of going out or doing anything special but I really just wanted to feel pretty.  I recently had a pretty shitty day and I was pretty down on myself.  I got tired of sitting back and just going through the motions of the day without any real effort in myself. Don't get me wrong I really love not wearing make-up more so since having J because he has a habit of biting my face [don't ask] and I don't want the "chemicals" to be ingested by him.  

No this isn't a plea for chemical-free make up it is just me being what I assume is super cautious even though as I type this he is chewing on a baby wipe [what is the deal with that anyways].  

I did my make-up and decided to take a couple of self-portraits which I have been trying to achieve a great SP for quite some time and I don't just mean a selfie, even though I do love me some selfies.

I took a few in a well lit area and then went upstairs for a little less light so you could see the difference. 

Enjoy, Sundays.
