Why I've Decided to Keep Blogging

Back a few months ago, I had just left a job and was living on my savings while trying to find a new one. Along with many other stressful things happening all at once, all of the decisions, changes, and people leaving and entering my life left me in a place where I didn't have time to blog anymore. I didn't have any time to actually enjoy the blogger friendships I've made over the past two years or so. Every time I sat down with great intentions, I'd just get anxious because I'd slipped on posting. I felt like I was letting myself and everyone that reads Allisonleighann down. So I ignored it for awhile longer.

But then I happened across this shirt while shopping one day recently and laughed out loud. I didn't even try it on - I knew I was going to buy it the moment I touched it. And for some reason, just this shirt invigorated me. It gave me back my want to blog and keep up with people that I've "known" in some way or another for awhile now. 

In saying that, I'll be starting back off with fewer posts per week to get myself back in the creative groove I used to be in. Hopefully it won't take too long to get it back. :P

For the people who still read at the moment, you are AWESOME. Really. People like you are why I have faith in the world.

Happy Monday!

Currently - Long Overdue Update

It has been so long since I've updated! (Well, long for the blogging world at least.) So much has happened in the last two months or so and life has felt like a whirlwind for quite awhile now. Jobs, relationships, housing situations.... so much can change in such a small amount of time. I'm planning on getting back into blogging regularly, but for today it's just this "currently," post. Mainly just so I can catch up on my favorite blogs as well. ;)

I hope you all have a fantastic New Year! 

ReadingThe Skimm! If you didn't notice my shirt in the photo, I ADORE the Skimm. It's a weekday email that hits your inbox much earlier than you'll wake up so that once you do you can read what's going on in the world in five minutes or less. Not to mention they make clever puns and jokes as you're reading, which might be my favorite part about it. They even made up a drinking game for the political debates going on.

Listening To: HALSEY. I've become obsessed. I'm still listening to Melanie Martinez pretty regularly, but Halsey has taken over my playlists for now. Gasoline is my favorite.

Watching: iZombie and I'm soon-to-be-watching Goodnight Mommy. Hopefully tonight, actually.

Loving/Hating: The 7 minute workout app. Ow. It hurts so good (Because I'm so out of shape. Sheesh).

Missing: Cold weather. What is going on, Mississippi?!

Lusting Over: My new Emily Ley planner. 

Working As: A news reporter! I am so unbelievably excited. I start on the 4th and I'm equally nervous and so elated to be starting a job that actually uses my degree.

And that's it for now! Merry (late) Christmas, everyone! :)

Purina Muse Natural Cat Food Review

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MyCatMyMuse #CollectiveBias

I am SO picky when it comes to food for my Gemma. She is basically my child, and if you know me, you know that I will pretty much always pick her over a human in any situation. So, obviously, I want her to be eating the best food she can be eating. She's about one and a half now, so she's off of kitten food - thankfully. It gives me more brands to choose from.

9 Things You Should Never Wear To A Job Interview

In YouTube form!

I've been wanting to make another YouTube video forever and today I just spontaneously decided to! With the help of my boyfriend to make my room (much) cleaner, I sat down and recorded my first video on my iMac! So without further adieu, I present:

Fashion Sunday: Matching Separates

First of all - my hair is a complete mess in these photos and I don't even care. I was SO excited about this outfit was finally delivered that I immediately put it on and wanted to take photos. This outfit was $20 (COUNTING SHIPPING!) and I was in no way compensated. I know I do a fair amount of reviews/sponsored posts for companies but this one is just my own enthusiasm.
