Glitter in my hair

Thoughts on writing

Journalism, it’s what i’ve been doing for the past 3 years of my life. The importance of being objective, creative and to write long insightful texts have been present in my mind since long before I first started doing what I do professionally.

Today a friend of mine pointed out that me struggling to blog might come down to just that – Journalism. The mindset is so different, almost the opposite. Yes, they both center around creating interesting content, but on one hand you’re supposed to completely distance yourself from the text and on the other it relies on your personal opinions.

So, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to break the boundaries I’ve created myself on what my writing should be like. Just because I produce short, extremely self-centered texts for my blog doesn’t mean that I’m less of a journalist. All it comes down to is that I’m more flexible of a writer than I’ve been before.

I had to capture my friend Olivia’s makeup since I was the gang’s makeup artist for the night. An icy-white eyeliner with holographic glitter, products from NYX and glitter Face Stockholm.

PS. All of the pictures are from last weekend when my friend Emilia threw a birthday party with two other girls. The theme was glitter and let’s just say that the proverb “Glitter is the herpes of arts and crafts” is very, very true.

Hey! It's me, the journalist wannabe who're most often fondly referred to as "adrokable". If you were wondering I'm currently in my last year of a journalism degree at Stockholm University and work part time for the Swedish fashion magazine Damernas Värld.
