I Can’t Write About Something I Don’t Love 

      Around Christmas time I attempted Blogmas, and before that I’ve attempted to blog consistently for a over a year now, but every time I just can’t seem to stick with it. It would honestly pain me to write posts about nails and candles (although I do love candles) and all this materialistic crap that I wasn’t even interested in myself. But I did it because it’s what I thought people would want to read, and I did it because it’s what all of the big, popular bloggers did. 

     They have aesthetic, they have catchy posts about fashion and makeup and stuff that I just wish I could get into, but when I tried to do this, I was just a sub par version of their content. I can’t write about something I don’t love, about things I’m not passionate about. That’s not why I started a blog. Truth be told, I actually started a blog several years ago anonymously at the advice of a counselor to get my jumbled, self hating, depressed thoughts out & that was when I fell in love with the blogging world. 

     But not the blogging world I tried to be a part of when I started itsrubymarie because itsrubymarie is NOT a fashion blog, not a lifestyle blog, in the sense of cute aesthetic posts about dinner parties and such as I’ve tried to make it. No…That’s not what I’m passionate about. 

     I’m passionate about photography, about expressing myself in an artistic way, about mental health advocacy, about being a voice for those things that people don’t want to hear about. I’m passionate about Jesus and about people…And that, that is what I want to write about. From now on, that is what itsrubymarie will be about. 

Disclaimer: I know many of my followers probably follow itsrubymarie because of what it has been in the past, but I ask you to take a chance at this new journey & open your eyes to what I have to say (…or write) as it is truly what is closest to my heart. Also, this is no hate towards fashion & lifestyle bloggers, that’s just not me but I think y’all are amazing & wish I could look that cute all the time! 😉 

Thank you for reading, expect new posts soon & of course tons of pictures still.

Hannah Read / Fashion Blogger 

These last couple of weeks have been crazy, school starting, health issues, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. But I always relish the opportunity to shoot portraits, it is such a lovely distraction from stressful things. It’s such a good creative outlet.

Recently, I started working with Fashion Blogger, Hannah Read, you can check out her site here: xoxoblissfullybrunette.com

It has been such a joy shooting with Hannah and I can’t wait to collab more! Here are some photos from our most recent shoot at a cute little Theater in Seattle!

I am so thankful for all the people who have reached out to me recently wanting to take pictures. Photography is my passion and I would LOVE love love to be able to do it full time.

If anyone would like to shoot please contact me through my website or any form of social media!

Xoxo,

My Holiday Nais & 12 Other Festive Nail Ideas // Blogmas Day 12 

I always love go get my nails done, especially around Christmas. The dry weather of winter wreaks havoc on my hands, so I like my nails to at least look pretty.

I realize that most of these you would have to get done in a salon. Unless your nail painting skills are amazing (mine are not) so I’m sorry if you wanted DIY nails. Maybe I will do another post on that! Although, it would probably turn into a Pinterest fails post if I did lol.

Anyway, I hope you get some festive inspiration! Here are my nails & 12 other Holiday designs that I love:
