GLAM Blog Club: Change

The theme for this month’s GLAM Blog Club is…. Change! I have been considering what angle to take on this theme. Rather than just write about the changes I’ve experienced in my life, e.g. moving to work in a regional museum, I wanted to dig a little deeper. I love it when I visit a museum and leave feeling a little bit like I have, dare I say, changed. This could be on a real fundamental level, making me question my beliefs and values, or on a less intense level, making me stop and go wow that has had an impact. The following is a list of four museums/exhibitions that I feel have changed me in some way shape or form. Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: Change”

GLAM Blog Club: Collect

I’m going to start by ignoring the fact I once said I’ll try and write something every month for GLAM Blog Club. It wasn’t a complete lie…I have tried. This theme, however, is a perfect opportunity to reveal and discuss a couple of my personal collections.

Here are the two main ‘things’ I would say I actively collect:
1. Vintage and Vintage-Style Clothing
2. American election campaign pins Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: Collect”

GLAM Blog Club: Control

What an appropriate theme for GLAM Blog Club considering I am a control freak. In a good way of course. What can I say, I’m a true Virgo through and through. A big part of this comes from my desire to have things organised – I even colour code my wardrobe (yes, I have also catalogued the contents reassuring myself it was for insurance purposes and not for fun).

GLAM Blog Club: Happiness

New month, new GLAM Blog Club post! February went by so quickly I completely forgot to write something. To make up for it, I’m going to try and publish this blog as early in the month as possible. The theme for March is Happiness – i.e. what makes you happy? This is a huge theme to cover and consider, so I’m going to just focus on one moment where I felt nothing but happiness. Otherwise, we would be here all day. I say this because even on my bad days, I feel extremely grateful and happy to be working in an industry that is also something I’m passionate about.

GLAM Blog Club: How I Ended Up Here

It has been way too long since I’ve written a post for GLAM Blog Club. This month, the theme is How I Ended Up Here. Not only does this allow for some great feelings of nostalgia, but also, time to reflect on my journey. It’s so easy to get caught up in the present or dread/fear/anticipate the future. How often do you take the time to sit down and really just remember where you started and how far you’ve come? I’m hoping that by writing this blog post, I can take the time to feel proud of what I’ve accomplished. I also hope that if you’re reading this post, you can also take some time out of your day to do the same. Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: How I Ended Up Here”
