Moving!

Hey guys! I have decided it is in fact time to MOVE to a new host. I am going to be using Tumblr as my host now because I love Tumblr and it’s really easy to work with. Anyways, if you are following me via Bloglovin, you don’t need to do anything! All my future posts will be on your Bloglovin‘ dashboard safe and sound. If you are following me via WordPress.com or email, unfortunately you are going to need to refollow me either on Bloglovin OR Tumblr.

The current link is www.rosiesayshello.tumblr.com but within the next few days my domain www.rosiesayshello.com will no longer link to this site but to my new one!

So please be sure to follow me! Thank you!

Photography Lessons w/ Frank

Hey guys! So I took my friend Frank out for a night shoot! He’s still learning photography but he did MUCH better shooting at night… mainly because I just put it on night mode. HA the secrets out. But anyways. Today was cool, I started training for my new job and finished all the paperwork so I’m officially a photographer again for a living. Woo! Tis exciting. I also found out that my birthday weekend is going to hella busy! That’s VMA weekend, gah. PREPARE FOR BATTLE OF THE DRESSES. Oh wait what? HAHAHA. Anyways today at the shoot since Frank was practicing he took a bunch of candid photos of me getting ready and walking to the park. Candid photos are my favs!

It was a lovely night. Apparently it was 4 hours long and I don’t even remember being away from my phone for that amount of time but I was… AHAHA :) What do you think of these candids? Does Frank have potential? I’m working on his skills! LOL x

Hey guys! I got this AMAZING bustier from Dressale.com and am so incredibly in love with it. It’s form fitting, yet stretchy material so it fits perfectly and feels really comfortable. The buttons in the back make it uber cute as well! It can be worn so many different ways. I choose to style it for the park this evening with my friend. I really love my orange heels so I wanted to pair it with those as well as my red beanie because even though it’s summer time, I am OBSESSED with beanies already! How would you style this bustier? Grab yourself one at Dressale.com and let me know!

Heels: Wild Violet

So I’m debating on starting a new blog and moving away from Rosie Says Hello, let me explain and then you can help me decide. I started this blog two years ago and completely fell in love with posting on it. To this day I still LOVE the name “Rosie Says Hello” I’ve spent a lot of hard work and dedication into it but it MIGHT be time for me to start fresh with a brand new blog name and here are some pro’s and con’s for each side.

CONS
Lose a majority of my followers when leaving WordPress.com
Changing the name
Having to start completely over from scratch with a new logo, etc.

PROS
Starting over and being able to register it was a business immediately and will be able to keep track of all my finances from the start for tax purposes. (when I first started I wasn’t aware I would be using it to make money and WordPress.com doesn’t allow certain ads)
Using a host that allows me to MAKE money (I cannot affiliate with anyone because of WordPress.com which causes a lot of business problems).
Leaving behind the entire relationship I had with my ex (we got together in December 2011 and Rosie Says Hello started August 2012)
Starting over means I can categorize my blogs and keep it more organized (I’ve been trying but there’s so many posts)

My options are to completely start over (which I sometimes really like to do) with a brand new name, logo, etc. on Blogger (or self hosted) and try to get ALL my followers back while urging old followers to follow my new blog. I can also do all of these but keep the “Rosie Says Hello” name and just start over with that incase anyone already uses “Rosie Says Hello” to remember me. This way I can move forward as a business… however I CANNOT keep my old blog posts because when I file for taxes I don’t have anything to show for the years 2012 – present… My last option is to stay where I am and just make money uses outside sources rather than affiliates and links being put on my blog. (Affiliate means you make money based off commission of a sale clicked through your website so if someone clicks the link on my site and buys something I get money).

I’ve been scratching my brain for months with this. What do you guys think? Would you follow my new blog? x

Traveling Through Dark Tunnels

Hey guys. So I’ve been slowly feeling A LOT better actually haha, and today I got to work on myself and did a lot of reflecting and thinking. I’ve come to the conclusion that #1 I eat way too much junk food and even though I’m very thin I’m sure my body would thank me if I threw in some exercise and healthier food. I also want to start baking again. And reading! I should make a list of all thing things I want to do and start making time for all of them. So yesterday, I went to hang out with my best friends and they had appointments at a barber shop an hour apart from each other so while each of them were getting their hair cut, the other one and I went outside to smoke! LOL

We went inside of a tunnel at a local park across the street from the barber shop and it’s one of the most beautiful places ever. I’ve done so many shoots there but when you see it it really looks dirty. You have to have an artistic eye I think to spice it up.

Outside of the tunnel. Very mellow. Slightly breezy. Cool and very nice. Then today I started working at my new job! Working as a photographer again (weeee) and I dyed my hair (it was about that time) just my roots calm down. It’s still red. LOL :) Tomorrow after work I’m going to hopefully go get a hair cut! I want some bangs… what do you think good idea? Bad idea? x

Ps. I got a new Instagram! Please follow rosiesayshello!

Confessions of a Shopaholic: 7/31/2014

I went out for some things today! Don’t worry everything was definitely under $3! I really needed some new bras and i bought some shirts that are… sideless or see through so i wanted the bras to be bright and flashy… LOL

photo 4-2 photo 5-2

I love the color purple so i’m creating a entire collection of purple bras lmfao. yellow is my second favourite color. also got a hot pink knitted mesh top, a shirt that i found attractive because of the elephants (it’s also a large so it’s going to be baggy and loose on me one of the shirts that will need a bra under it.) and lastly i have a lot of gray tank tops that i constantly wear but not very many purple ones… so i’m really trying my best to create an entirely purple wardrobe. :)

HAHA. it sucks though because the only place where my bra size actually exists is Victoria Secrets and they cost $55 a bra. fuckkk. so i went with a size too small LOL :)

What did you guys get today? Also I got a new instagram and a new snapchat both with the username “rosiesayshello” please follow me! x

Hey guys. Today I had to drive 30 minutes to a Fedex because they wouldn’t accept it at my old house without my signature… took advantage of it and ended up going to pinkberry for the first time in such a long time! mmm, pomegranate and original with captain crunch! And as we were leaving I saw a rainbow by the trash. Ha so pretty.

I love pinkberry so much. Have any of you ever been there? It’s only in certain areas. Definitely a must try if you’re visiting LA. Then on the way back to my car I found a little robot iphone accessory (i think that’s what it is) but i’m going to make it my new keychain! kick ass don’t you think?

After heading home, I got hit up by my best friend literally two seconds after i walked through the door so it was back out again! We decided to go shopping (that’s a whole different story!)

Now I’m just at home chillin. but i ate at mcdonalds twice today and i’ve had a LOT of sweet tea. so much sweet tea, I decided to get myself a second snapchat because i realized after getting drunk a few days ago… i probably shouldn’t let strangers watch me get cray. AHAHHAHA you don’t have that privilege. So anyways, add me on my new Instagram rosiesayshello and add my new snapchat rosiesayshello where i will post fashion and work related things only LOL! :)
