Welcome to Blackberry Milk, my corner of the internet's poky little blogging cupboard. Although it feels like a thing of the past, blogs have always grabbed me and I don't want to see them disappear. For me and many others, blogs bridge the gap between reading books / magazines, and the fast-paced social media platforms of Twitter, Facebook et al, where everything is short, blunt, and gone in 60 seconds. Like you, I love to read about people's thoughts, research and musings in carefully constructed posts.
What will Blackberry Milk do?
I aim to post 2-4 times a month on lolita, posting reviews, coords, sewing tutorials, illustrations and more. I started this blog because I spend far too much time online researching everything lolita, and so a blog just felt like the right place to store and share my thoughts and knowledge – to make something productive out of all the time I spend neglecting friends and family. Plus, it seemed a great way to procrastinate when I'm supposed to be finishing my next painting. I'm too shy to be a vlogger and I write better than I speak. I am by no means an expert, and love to talk to more experienced lolitas about different topics and ideas.
Why Blackberry Milk?
Milk is one of my favourite words for reasons I don't fully understand. I love nature, autumn and deep colours, so I thought, why not Blackberry Milk? It's as good a name as any, and after a while, names start to mean something different anyway.
