I started this blog in summer 2012 as something fun to do. I used to blog on a site called Luuux (which doesn't really work now) and I figured I might as well start my own blog so I can keep all of my post organized. I really didn't know what I wanted to write about at first so I took inspiration from Luuux. I saw many people doing outfit of the day's, hauls, and makeup tutorials which intrigued me. I kinda wanted my blog to take a route similar to that yet at the same time, I wanted some of my personal life experiences in there too. After many post, I finally figured out how I could do both now!
In honor of my anniversary, here my top 10 favorite/notable post- (clicking the caption will bring you to that specific post =)

To be honest, when I first started my blog, I anticipated it to be just a summer thing. I actually did give up on it in Oct. 2012 (where I posted ~1-3 post a month!), however I did jump back on after break! I wanted to solidify my commitment to my blog even more by purchasing my own domain in Jan. I went from mindy13579.blogspot.com to mybrokeneggshells.com. Having my own domain just makes me feel so much more professional ! hehe Since then, I have developed my own schedule for posting which I can keep to. I currently post ever Sun. and Wed! I'm not sure what is going to happen once senior year starts (maybe post on Sunday only..) , but I determined to keep my blog updated!
Now for a little fun, I wanted to show you guys how I take the photos for my blog, kinda of like a behind the scenes. It's actually quite comical actually because I don't own a tripod so I made do with a "homemade one.."
All I do is take 2-3 buckets like this -
and a cinder block for extra height-
Now all I do is place my camera on top, set the mode to burst (takes 5 photos in a row) and set the timer on. Then I run to my place, smile, pose, and volia, I have photos! I repeat this step as many times as necessarily till I am done! =)
I am thinking of purchasing a new camera soon and a tripod so I don't have to do this anymore. I just want to make sure it's a good choice and pick out a camera. I have my eyes on a few, but I haven't quite chosen it yet! I think HQ pictures for my blog would be really nice!!
