Athleisure

Sunday, June 28, 2015
Hello everyone! Looking good and feeling comfy at the same time. You may be thinking, that's impossible. Well it's not! Now, I'm sure you're familiar with sport outfits- they're simple and comfortable! It's something you would wear when you go to the gym (obviously!) or just feel like having a casual lazy day. I've teamed up with Freshpair (go check out their store, you won't regret it especially this page!) and decided to give you guys tips on how to really take this trend and make it your own!

#1: Flaunt It
Don't be afraid to show your comfy- yet stylish sport outfits off in public! 

#2: Mix & Match
Mix & match your clothes to create an outfit that shows off a bit of your own personal style, a sporty side and obviously, still make it comfy.

#3: Stand Out
This one is basically just a combination of #1 and #2, it basically means, stand out and have your own style and don't be afraid to do so!

Black Goes With Everything

Wednesday, June 24, 2015
Hello everyone! I've always noticed that the colour Black has really been trending for the past few years. It's probably because it gives you that edgy, classy, chic feel. It's also probably because the colour black goes with almost everything! So then, I was inspired to make these sets with at least one item that's colour black. Sorry this blog post is shorter than usual, school just started for us and there's tons of stuff to do. But yeah, I hope you guys enjoy this post! :-)

What's that one colour that you think goes with everything? Comment down below!

Ask a Blogger Part 4

Thursday, June 18, 2015


This part's question is... "What inspired you to make your own blog?"


As for how My Life In Snippets came to be...

I've enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember - I love that the little alphabet of 26 letters results in millions of words that can be put together in countless ways to make stories, messages or art, even! During the first three years of college, I attempted to start a blog - but education always found a way to stop me. Finally, after reading and hearing from a few quite motivational bloggers, I decided to get serious. I purchased a domain, as well as hosting and started writing! I love sharing life events, travel adventures, opinions and knowledge! My love for writing and inspiration found in my daily life adventures keeps My Life In Snippets going strong! 


I was inspired to start my own blog because I wanted to have a way to share informatively, mind.body.spirit. for all those needing help in any of those directions. Through my trials and triumphs as a human (first), I hope to inspire and enlighten along the way. And whatever I learn, then share - if that can then be passed along to more folks, it creates a stream of positive thinking wherein change - real change - may happen in this world. Good gosh, I hope I am doing that, daily. From life
lessons to hair tips and everything in between - informed.sharing.always.

I love to write, especially love to journal.  I used to be great about writing in my journal, but would miss days here and there.  I realized that typing would be faster and easier.  My blog was not public at first as I used it for a repository for my thoughts and life happenings.  The journal entries started to form into "stories", so I started telling family and friends about it...unlocking it to the public.  That was the hardest thing for me to do...it was like opening my life up to strangers!  Now my blog has turned into so much more!


Michelle Hiat
I started blogging originally because so many of my friends and family would ask, "How do you always know about the cool things to do?" or say, "Your family is always doing such cool things!"  I wanted to be able to share our adventures, show other people that it was easy to find them, and encourage them to get out of the house and spend time together as a family.  


Mikayla Christiansen
I have always been a rather articulate person. From the time when I was able to write to now, I have always created small short stories and poems. The time where I felt at peace was when I was writing my thoughts or the events that occurred on that day in my pink, sparkly princess journal. As the years progressed, I became a magnet to everything fashion. I would spend my own money purchasing fashion magazines and going through them repeatedly.  Summer of last year, I began to notice these "fashion accounts" on Instagram. I went through a few of these posts and clicked on a link on one of the account's profiles. It took me to this beautiful blog decorated with logos and pictures of outfits, home décor, and crafts. I read article after article. I kept on checking out other's blogs and falling in love all over again. My discovery of the blogging world led me to think 'that is something I would like to do'. I did not know how much work blogging would be. I clicked on the 'create an account' button on blogger and began playing around with all the buttons and tools. I have been introduced to the blogging community who I couldn't be blessed enough to be able to be in. This community has helped me grow my blog and my own self. I created my blog, because I was inspired by other ladies. Through my own blog, I hope to do the same thing. ​







Kirsten Brontmire
I was inspired to start a blog because I wanted to be my own boss. I've only had one job and I realized I didn't like taking orders from other people and doing things their way. I wanted to do things my way. Also, I live with Borderline Personality Disorder and blogging is a way I can express my creativity and feelings in a healthy way. I want to make money, as well.


Shann Soiney
I started writing shortly after my twins were born. They were born really early (25 weeks) so I used my writing as an emotional outlet while they were in the hospital. It was also a great way to let all our friends and family know what was happening. 
After they were released (91 and 93 days later,) I found I really enjoyed writing and it was very therapeutic for me. It has turned into a daily blog about our life, as well as inspiration for others going through a difficult pregnancy or hospital stay.


Brooke Safferman
I actually have an entire blog post (with video!!) as to why I started blogging (click the hyperlink to see the post/watch the video!! <3). To sum things up, I suffered from a knee injury from playing field hockey that prevented me from wearing cute heels and skinny jeans, as I needed to wear sneakers and gym clothes as often as possible to have proper shoe support and loose-fitting clothing around my knee. I was feeling depressed because I felt like I was losing my identity by being unable to express myself fully. So, I decided that writing about fashion would be the next best thing! However, I realized that I also wanted to write about other topics, too, such as lifestyle-related subjects - and that's how my blog developed!


Shauna Schuette
I've been crafting and creating since the time I learned to walk. I can't remember a time when I wasn't working on one project or another. Then when I learned to write, I got very involved in writing my own short stories, journaling, and writing essays. I'd even write book reports on books that I read, for no reason other that to write. As an adult, I had people tell me to start a blog for years, but I just didn't know if it was for me. Boy, was I wrong! It is exactly what I've loved doing, all mixed into one. I also love photography, so I've been getting more involved in that as well through my blog. Now, I have been blogging for about a year and a half, with no intentions on stopping! It's such a great way to get my creative spirit out there, for the world to see! 


Angela Tolsma 
I have always journaled, blogging felt like a natural step in the continuation of my journey. I am a very shy person, until I start writing and then the world opens up!


I think what inspired me to open my blog is my passion to share my story, my thoughts and to form a bond with other people who go through similar experiences and share my passions. Blogging is an outlet for me to write about my life but also to discover more about myself, so when I was ready to do that more consistently I opened my blog!


Felecia Efriann

I started blogging in middle school, for the sole purpose of sharing my stories with an audience. Now, I share all my various creative endeavors on the blog. It nice to be able to share with others the things I enjoy doing and what I have learned. I like to share the various joys in my everyday life, adventures in babysitting, love for books, music, and creating.

Ask a Blogger Part 3

Sunday, June 14, 2015




This part's question is "How do you deal with writer's block?"


-Blast some music and do a little yoga.
-Read some recent posts by my favorite bloggers for inspiration.
-Turn to my favorite networks and ask for what they'd like to see.
I also don't really mind when I miss a day or two in between posts because I'd rather post something I really like instead of something I'm not so sure of.



Syaza Suhana
Well for me personally, I would go onto Pinterest and try to find some ideas from there. Sometimes I would read a book or watch TV or go and read peoples' blogs just to get some ideas. I would also list down ideas that might work according to my blog niche, which I always end up being random haha. 


Tatum Murray
The best way to deal with writer's block is to recognize it and not try to push things that aren't coming. There are just some days when the words aren't flowing and no matter how long I sit at my computer, it's just not going to happen. I deal with this by taking a break--whether it be 5 minutes, 5 hours, or 5 days (depending on the deadline). It's also super important to not get down on yourself when you have writer's block. It happens to everyone and it's only temporary. I know that I owe it to myself and my readers to produce the best writing that I can, so it's important to wait through writer's block to get the good content flowing. 


Kenzie Negron
I personally deal with writer’s block by continuously looking at other blogs. Sometimes I’ll just go to a blog that I know is very popular and gets a lot of views/comments and from there, I’ll go through the comments and take a look at it all the commenters blogs. For me, the feeling of wanting to write and become a better blogger comes from the inspiration I get from viewing other peoples blogs who I really enjoy.


Jessica Starks
I deal with writer's block by reading! If I can't figure out what I want to discuss in a post, I Google random topics, just to see what comes up - you never know what you'll run into! I also read the news and other blogs to catch some ideas as well.


Kelli Bhattacharjee
Since I blog about a myriad of topics including money saving tips, DIY ideas and other frugal living tricks, I simply think about what issues or problems I am having or my friends are having. That always gives me inspiration. 


UGH. Writer's block. What could be worse for a blogger (besides, of course, Wordpress going out of business or the internet crashing…. oh my G, knock on wood)?? For me, I've noticed it's best to not put too much pressure on myself in this type of situation, as that usually makes it MORE stressful. Who writes well & beautifully under pressure?? Not  I. When I'm suffering from writer's block, I'll go somewhere completely new, go out and take a long walk/go on a hike, have a drink with friends, or take a day or two off. These easy-going activities make me relaxed and inspired (usually) and ready to sit down and take on an article or two. Writer's block, terminated. 


Lysse Pier
Writers' Block is something I am often visited by.  One way I deal with it is getting inspiration.  I would take the opportunity when I'm out the house to look around and I'd look through different blogs and websites as well for a few ideas.  Another is changing the area where I write.  It's hard to concentrate if the work space is messy, small and near noise sources like the television so what I like to do is to either clean up, lower the noise, or move to a different location.  However, the one thing I do to avoid Writers' Block is to write about the things I love.  In my blog, I personally write about things I want to share to others and not about what everyone else seems to write about.  It's good to get inspiration from other blogs in times of Writers' Block but I always remind myself that this my blog, my ideas, and it's my outlet of expressing myself to others.


I deal with writer's block by changing my scenery, free writing, finding exciting things to write about, turning off my internet and writing (even if it's awful) until I feel a break through, and by reading books and magazines until I feel inspired.


As a blogger, I get stuck many times trying to think of quality content to write and post on my blog.  When I do have writer's block, I first turn to other bloggers and read their content, more so bloggers who aren't in the same niche as me so I can take my mind off what something I have been constantly looking at.  Secondly, I try to do activities outside of my blog, spend time with my family, go out for a drink, but I don't engage on the internet.  After a few days of a break, I usually am refreshed enough to have a lot of ideas to create amazing posts!


I think the best way to deal with writers block is to take a break. Get outside and soak up the sun, get your body moving and sweating, experience things outside of your office or apartment. Give yourself something to write about that is an experience. Break through.


I blog mostly about things me and my family do in our everyday lives so I generally just keep doing things when I hit writers block. I know that eventually I'll get it back if I just keep moving.


Sahar Sabati
I have to admit that being hit with writer's block always surprises me.  I mean, one would think that with the wealth of information, media, and conversations that surround me, I would never, ever run out of ideas!  But just like with any other blogger, it happens sometimes.  The way I deal with it depends on the reason for the block.  Sometimes I'm just tired; I'll get through the day with frequent short power breaks and coffee, then make sure to get a lot of sleep that night.  If I'm tired of writing, I do something that requires the use of my hands, which helps me switch off my writer's mind and focus on something else, giving said writer's mind the rest it needs.  I usually don't run out of ideas, but I do sometimes blank out; I have come to understand that this means I haven't done enough research on the matter, which usually settles the matter quite easily.  And worse comes to worse, I make sure to spend time with someone near and dear to me, which always makes everything better.

Hello June!

Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Hello everyone! It's another month again, funny how time flies by that fast. It honestly feels like March just started yesterday. But no, it's already June. Can you believe it?! Anyways, this blog post will be quite a short one. This month is actually the month that I go back to school. I'm quite sad that summer's over, but I guess all great things must come to an end. But I know some of your summers just started and I hope you make it an unforgettable one! My summer of 2015 was the best one yet. This month, I encourage you guys to try out new things. Life is short, and you should really live life to the fullest. If you choose not to, you'll look back at dull memories and that would honestly really be horrible. But if you choose to live life to the fullest, you'll look back at great memories, and obviously- it'll be really fulfilling!

Here's a song I've been loving lately! "Neon Trees - Everybody Talks" It's quite an old song, but I think that it's still a pretty awesome song.
