I want to take a look back and remind myself that there are some good things, the best things, and favorite things in my life. I thought of this when I was going for a walk today around my campus and it reminded me of some beautiful things hidden. I’ve realized that I really like hidden corners haha. But, I felt like I should share some things that I appreciate.
SO, how long has it been since I made a video? Almost since the summer, I think.
I’m really glad I made this video. It felt good and I was in no rush to make it. I know when I did the youtube thing I planned heavily or I made dumb goals that were unattainable.
This video is everywhere! I do a little bit of catch up on where and what I’ve been doing and at 7:07 the rest is a cute little montage of some good things 😉
If you like things like this pls lemme kno!
Okay okay, I really stalled this post because posting about my own music is pretty vulnerable. Some days I like my music and other times I really don’t. But I have to post about it sometime. And who knows! I have the choice to delete this if I wanted to :o. Anyway, I hope you enjoy 🙂
I really don’t know what this song is, but it was fun making it!
Give me a follow if you’d like 🙂
I have other songs like these…
Here is my lame attempt of making a mood/inspiration board, I mean who really makes them anyway right? Am I running out of ideas? No i’m not :). Anyway I just thought it would be fun to do this.
Well this is what goes on in my head for most of the time and it’s not even all of it. 🙂
If you know me, you know that I love lush. I LOVE LUSH. I love it so much that I converted to only using Lush products in the bath/shower. The last time I went al out and bought stuff there has been a few months, so I make sure that I salvage and use what I need. This haul has some new stuff while others are my all time favorites.
Here is a little evaluation time. I remembered that I has some goals for the summer and some I did and didn’t do. So, I decided to compile a list here and also in physical form in a journal. These lists won’t be far fetched, just some goals and fun things I want to do. I feel like everyone should keep a list like this; so on a boring old day you might have something to do. Also, we’re at a half point in the year, I have to get some things done while I can.
Now, some of these things may cost money and others won’t. It really depends on the situation and task at hand. Now, let’s get to the list.
Hair- The Body’s Landscape
While I was going through instagram an ad for a shaving company popped up on my feed. It was very different than any other shaving ad I’ve seen. First of all, the women in the ad had hair on their body. Continue reading “P1: Lengths To Body Love”

This post was going to be something else, it was going to be me reminiscing the moment I got to see Her’s perform, when I got to meet them.
Hey ya’ll I did a Mac Demarco cover just for fun and I thought I could share it with you! You can find the song on my YouTube and soundcloud. 🙂 What’s your favorite Mac Demarco songs, I have too many to count!
Hey guys! Sorry it has been a while since I’ve written or posted anything, which will be fully explained in the next blog post I do. Today I wanted to talk about the latest fun reading I did for myself. Continue reading “Fun Reads – Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto”
Suns, Stars, Plants, and Moons…The Co-Star App
I have been obsessed with Astrology and in my own experience it is pretty accurate. One of my roommates told me about this app called Co- Star, where you can get a personalized reading that gives Continue reading “Mercury In Retrograde – Co-Star”
Hello! SO 👏🏼
I decided to make a Bandcamp. Not for any particular reason, I just thought that I should place some of my songs on a different platform other than Soundcloud. But I also remember someone telling me to put on of Continue reading “I made a Bandcamp”
If I’m writing this post, it might be because I’m creatively frustrated. Haha – just a lucky guess.
I realized I forgot to write a post for today and here I am doing it very much last minute. Sounds like something I would do but I guess I work better under pressure.
I figured that I am not the only artist stuck in a rut, all of us (yes you are an artist too) are sometimes in a difficult place. Especially when it comes to a creative project or when you want to rekindle your creative spirit. It’s okay – we have al been there and we all will be there. Creative frustration should be a time to rebirth your spark. I have a problem of thinking too much, way too much, to the point that I forget what I wanted to do/say/make/or act in that moment. It sucks, but I live with it. I have so much pen up excitement (and frustration) to just produce the words and images in my head. I just want to share, love, and make things for everyone! Here are some things I do to help myself. I find that this helps out a lot with how I think things through.
I give myself a solo music/dance scene
Yes. This is a faithful technique. It really just helps me feel better when I do this. I lip sync or literally sing along to my music while dancing in front of a mirror. I do this in the Continue reading “What I Do When I Feel…Creatively Frustrated”
Is this a new series? I don’t know, I feel that I have a lot of ongoing series happening to holliesongbird.com. I have playlists, Songs of The Week, Monthly Updates, What’s In My Journal, Gratitude, Reviews, Favorites, and many more that I’ve been thinking about but too afraid to start. I don’t want to lose my posts within themselves, so I decided to think about reorganizing. Before I get to that, I wanted to let you know that this may or may not be a new series. I wouldn’t categorize it as a Monthly Update since it won’t be anything about what is happening in my mental health or life. These are just notes I could have written down in my note book about bettering myself, or things I plan or wish to do over the break or free time. So I hope you enjoy, I figured that If I gave an explanation for this post it might help you better understand the messes I make for myself, hahaha. Here it goes.
