Blogger of the Week: Daydream Frenzy!


Hello fellow bloggers! This is Rachel Emma from Daydream Frenzy- filling in for the lovely Gentri! This is my first time guest-posting, so hopefully I don't make a fool of myself! Okay, it will probably happen anyway.

First off, my blog is mainly devoted to outfits/fashion and how to expand a closet on a low budget (as I have)as well as how to work with whatcha got! My interest in fashion blogging first began when I had one day spotted a pair of rad combat boots at the mall. I have a rule when shopping, and that's "never purchase something you wouldn't know what to wear it with." So after forcing myself not to buy them, I went home and Googled "how to wear combat boots." So much inspiration and ideas popped up which lead me to find websites based on what would look good to wear, and eventually I ended up in the fashion blogging world. I don't claim to have an amazing sense of style, which is why I created this blog in the first place. It will act as a type of challenge for me to start wearing the clothes I hardly ever touch as well as a space to watch my style grow along with this blog. Plus, it'll give me an efficient way to keep track of my closet and show that I don't need new clothes in order to make a new outfit (something I have trouble learning).

Of course, my blog isn't simply JUST outfits. Daydream Frenzy is my personal outlet for anything and everything: ideas, experiences, rants, vents, advice, recommendations, preferences, and everything in between. I've also created a bucket list of 100 things I want to do before I die, so my blog will document anything I've completed from the list! I don't think I could ever simply write on only one thing. I like sharing too much! I've always enjoyed putting a piece of myself out there; I used to write and post pictures on old (and I mean ancient) websites such as Xanga and Piczo (did anyone else use these, or am I the only one?). I think it's important to preserve part of our lives now, whether it be online or in a diary, so that we can look back and remember them later (which is also why I love scrapbooking)! Don't you sometimes wish your parents or grandparents had done the same? The only thing my mom kept when she was younger were photo albums, but I still don't obtain a high comprehension of what her life was like, or even what she was like, back then.

So! I'm pretty random, so here are some random facts about yours truly. I was born in England; my dad is British (accent and all), so sometimes it's difficult to understand what the heck he just said. Unfortunately, I did not inherit his lovely accent (all my friends say they would like me more if I did haha). I live in Texas and I plan to stay, for in all my time living here I've never experienced a flood, earthquake, hurricane, tornado, or tsunami, so yeah... I feel pretty safe. I go to school in Austin at the University of Texas (hook em' horns!) where I'm currently studying corporate communications. I have a wonderful boyfriend who has been in my life for a little over a year now. I'm not someone most people would consider "cool". I read the Harry Potter series repeatedly, I play Pokemon videogames, and I still laugh at Spongebob cartoons. What am I, 5? Maybe. I also love to try new things, especially when it comes to food; on a 2008 school trip to China, I was the only girl to eat a scorpion in a Beijing market. Not very ladylike, I suppose. I'm a dog person. I suck at sports. I'm not outdoorsy at all, but I'd like to be. Sometimes I'm pretty funny, and other times I think I'm funny when I'm really not. I am a champion procrastinator. I fall asleep during action movies when I'm not even tired (I'm more of a comedy lover). I love to bake, but I hate to cook; who says you can't have cereal for dinner? I can never watch scary movies (I still refuse to watch Paranormal Activity), yet I love reading horror books. I love ALL types of music. No, seriously.

Alright, enough with this super-long post! You all have lives to get back to, I'm sure. If you'd like to follow me or make a new friend, don't be shy to visit me at Daydream Frenzy! I always check out the blogs that are kind enough to check out mine. And if not, you can always chat with me on Twitter!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day! :)

Oh and I just freaked when I saw how much Rachel Emma and I are alike. I can't watch scary movies or anything gory, I love spongebob, and dogs. I pretty much concur with everything you just said, except for the British part. I'm a South African.
