Help a blogger out, yo.

Apr 10, 2012

It's warm outside, which inevitably means I will cut my hair (check), change my hair color (still contemplating), buy a new wardrobe (halfway there), spend exorbitant amounts of money on makeup I don't need and probably won't use (resisting the urge) and I will give my blog a makeover (happening right now as you read this).

I've been messing around with a few design ideas, but what's really stumping me is a tagline. "Inside the head of a wistful city girl who loves cake and shoes she can't afford" doesn't accurately describe me anymore. Sure, I'm wistful, but not nearly as much as I used to be. I have too much going on to sit around and muse about a life I wish I had. I still love cake, but when I began this blog I packed on 20 pounds because I loved it so much, so it's much more of a treat now than it used to be. And of course I love shoes I can't afford (have you seen my Pinterest???), but I'm wise enough now to pin a picture of them on a virtual board instead of buying them and adoring them from afar as the heels are entirely too high for me to manage.

Here's what I've been mulling over:

1) Attempts at not getting fat and broke in the District
2) Skinny, single and fabulous is better on TV
3) DC sure isn't what it used to be...and I lurv it!
4) Everything I know about cake, fashion and hipsters, I learned from DC
5) If only I were allergic to gluten and fashionable footwear

Basically, I want to convey that Carrie Bradshaw is an anorexic liar and learning how to be a woman is about being comfortable with yourself rather than conforming to societal norms that are really not normal at all. But funny. And also that DC is a cool city with more to it than Capitol Hill.

I'm open to suggestions here. Do you have any for me?

    So Proud of you and how you have grown, not the 20 pounds ,but everyone does that in DC. Your nature and , sense of humor and love of life. Something about giving back - would be nice - in your blog -volunteer at a museum , the zoo, or children's hospital. Talk to a soldier that served their country . Know the other side to DC, as you said. That is what I hope you do......
