breaking the law

hello beautiful people!  Happy Thursday.

this morning the sun finally decided to come out after days of a winter frenzy.  thank goodness, because the whiteness was getting a little irritating, especially when I couldn't leave the house.

Last night I got a wonderful nights sleep, more so than usual.  Despite the crazy thoughts swirling throughout my aimless mind.  I was thinking about this blog and what on earth I was going to post about today.  Then it hit me -- I don't have to post every single day.  There is no law stating that I can't take a day off to just relax.  Well, actually, there is a Emilyland.  But, honestly, isn't my sanity worth more than stressing over a blog post?  I don't want blogging to become a chore.  I want it to continue to be a fun experience, not another stress factor.  

So in loo of that, I am going to break the law in Emilyland.  Yes, I'd never thought that I would be doing something illegal, but you all are my witnesses.  I am going to challenge myself to post when I want.  Not when I feel like I have to post.  Sure, it'll be hard to avoid hitting the "new post" button, but I am willing to give it a go.  And in the end, you all will benefit from this as well -- fewer, more interesting posts from me; more entertainment for you all!  It's a win-win situation.

Phew!  It feels good to get that off my chest.  

Anywho.  I have another crave that I honestly can't handle holding inside.

adorbable, aren't they?  
I really need to reign in my shoe fettish, but I guess a girl can never have too many shoes :)

I hope you all have a fantastic day!  Enjoy the sunshine!

P.S. Please check out the wonderful drawing Samantha has done of me!  Thank you so much, I am honored to have been your muse!


  1. Have a wonderful day Emily. I love those oxfords. And yes, a girl can never have too many shoes. xoxo

  2. Emily, oxfords are amazing. I really want some in tan suede.

  3. ahhh so adorable! and yes, i agree. blogging is for YOU so don't make it a chore :] hehe
    love you!

  4. I think I just fell in love. I really do. Those shoes must be on my feet ;)

    I'm so glad you've realized that you don't have to post every single day, regardless of how you feel/what's happening/what's NOT happening. This is your blog, and you should not ever feel obliged to post every day just to "please" others. We love you no matter what!
    And distance makes the heart grow fonder...!

    Love you, beautiful!

    Eleanor xo

  5. YES!!!! girl - since I've broken free from the rigidity and post only when I'm inspired to it's SUCH a relief! we're always here whenever you feel like posting. K? blogging is a hobbie - not an obligation!

  6. Those remind me of the saddle shoes I wore when I was in grade school - so cute! I saw the adverts for them in the March issue of Teen Vogue the other day and fell in love!! :)

  7. oh girl, please never feel guilty about not posting everyday! never ever!

  8. Heey. Thanks for linking me :) Urgh I'm having problems with my blogging system though, so the post has disappeared temporarily. Oh well, your image is still in my illustrations folder. Glad you liked it :)
