When I started this blog (and really,
part of the reason I've ever wanted to blog) was to share product
reviews: of things I've made (I love to DIY almost anything!) and things I've bought, and my experiences
with both. I've just wanted to pass along some notes and thoughts about
... well, pretty much anything and everything.
Lately, I've wanted to kind of simplify parts of my life (don't we all!) and be more conscientious of things I use/ingest/expose myself to. I know I'll never be a totally crunchy hippie, but I think it doesn't hurt to be mindful and somewhat healthy! :) I also only want to surround myself with things that make me happy (Marie Kondo's "sparking joy"!) whether it be in my nighttime routine, house cleaning, eating, or clothes-wearing!
And...I pretty much rely on product reviews I read online, so I want to add to
the conversation, especially if it can help someone else out! I always
want to be honest with my thoughts, and I'll mostly be sharing my
enthusiasm for products I find fantastic!!
I'm adding some labels to
the blog: semi-natural, semi-homemade, semi-simple, semi-healthy, etc. (Wasn't there
a cooking show in the early 2000s about this? Semi-Homemade? I don't
really remember the show, but I love the concept!) I won't ever be a paleo-vegan-marathon runner (but I love you if you are!), but I will be a somewhat-healthy, somewhat-natural happy person. Hence the new blog labels/categories. :)
Anyway, these are my quick thoughts about reviewing products: store-bought and semi-homemade. Honest and hopefully fun and helpful!
This is the app I use for editing videos on my phone and it's great! I generally do just basic stuff: trimming video, converting the size (for text and email) and cropping, and it's always been easy and straight forward to use. I think it's the best video editing app I've found! I like it better than things I use on my computer!
