Hello hello all of you. I am so excited for todays post and kind of explain what direction I want my blog and instagram to go toward. And most importantly, cut the bullsh*t. This isn’t going to be your typical short and sweet post from me so buckle in & grab a snack.
So I started my blog back in 2013 while I was in college. Now it’s only been until recently that I’ve been taking it seriously. But back in then I loved everything beauty, fashion & wanted to share everything I loved with everyone. When I say everyone, I mean my family & the other random 3 people that happened to stumble across me. But I didn’t care. I loved sharing things I loved even if only a few (or no one) was reading about it. And that’s what I need to get back to.
Fast forward to now where I’m scared of posting what I love because people “don’t care” or I don’t want to be myself and curse on Instagram because that’s not brand friendly. I’ve lost myself to a point where people closest to me tell me I’m not the same person on Instagram that I am in real life. And that I need to show every one the real me because I’m much more interesting and funny and my life just a mess.
So let’s go, baby. I’ve realized I am not the type of girl that’s going to have professional photos on my feed of me on Wacker drive in front of the Chicago river mid laugh with my hair tucked behind my ear wearing a romper. Because thats just not me. I’m the girl most likely in my sweats, watching Real Housewives and eating chicken nuggets trying to figure out why I spent my rent on a new Saint Laurent bag *shrugs*.
And finally wanting to show you guys the real me is the most exciting thing ever. And not everyone is going to like me, I get it. But at least I can know that I’m being true to myself. I don’t want to hold back.
I want to post what I would want to see instead of hopping on the bandwagon of popular post ideas. Because in real life I beat to my own drum and have learned not to care what people think. I dance in public to no music, talk to strangers and have full blown conversations with my dog while walking down busy streets of Chicago. I literally walked down the street eating ramen out of a bowl. RAMEN. Laughing and nodding at people while wearing a Helmut Lang hoodie. If that doesn’t describe me in one situation I don’t know what does. And that’s the kind of attitude I want to bring across on all my social platforms.
So hi, I’m Keri Hill. Nice to meet you. I hope you stick around.
