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.

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:

Lifestyle

Sunsets

If you spend any time with me, you know that I LOVE sunsets and sunrises. I just think they are such a beautiful display of God’s love for us. I mean how can someone look at something so pretty and not want to just praise God for creating it. At least, that’s how I feel. 🙂 Honestly this weekend was crazy and not in a good way, but last night Victoria and I drove by a park while the sun was going down and decided to pull over and take some pictures. Scrolling through Pinterest earlier I saw the quote, “sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too” and I think this couldn’t be more true. Victoria & I had a good end to a not so good couple of days and I’m thankful for God using something as simple as a sunset for reassurance that everything is going to be okay.

The Heavens declare the glory of God; The skies proclaim the work of His hands. // Psalms 19:1

P.S. There is actually pictures of me in here, I know… what a surprise! Yes I cut my hair & I am loving it. I feel like shoulder length hair is making a comeback in 2016. 😉IMG_1965IMG_1977IMG_2007IMG_2057IMG_1968IMG_2054
