The Blogger Aesthetic Tag (aka “The Rachel Tries to be Artsy” Post)

Blogger Aesthetic Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Sara of The Bibliophagist a couple of weeks ago. (Thanks Sara! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š) You can check out her own cool blogger aesthetics here.

I really don’t consider myself artsy. The drawing gene skipped me and went straight to my sisters – the one born after me and our youngest – so , this is something I don’t usually do. I tried, though. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… (Thank God for online collage makers.!)

The Rules

  1. Collect any number of images that you feel represent you as a personโ€”your personality, aspirations, favorite things, anything at all that makes you you.
  2. Put your chosen images together into a collage of whatever size and shape you find pleasing.
  3. Share your masterpiece with everyone, in all the places.
  4. Maybe nominate other bloggers as a way to tell them, โ€œHey, you, I think youโ€™re awesome, and we should celebrate that awesomeness.โ€

Beach // Whether it be to swim, surf or just plain lounge around with a book in my hands, a cool drink on my side and my feet on warm sand, I love being in the beach, and I consider myself especially lucky being from the Philippines. My country has some of the most beautiful beaches, and all I have to do is get in my car and drive to them. (Well, that and maybe make hotel reservations because I wouldn’t want to sleep in my car.)

This beach photo is actually my own. I took it a couple of years ago when I and three other friends went to Baler, Aurora for the summer. Baler is known mostly as a surf spot, but if you’re willing to drive a bit farther, about an hour and a half or two tops, you can easily reach the town of Dipaculao. They have this long stretch of white sand beach, mostly undiscovered by tourist. It was just so quiet there. I intend to go back one of these days.

Coffee // I’m not a morning person but I prefer starting my day early so I require coffee first thing to start me up, you know, to magically turn me human. Without it, you’ll only get a grumpy vessel of me.

Music // Music comes pretty high up my list of things I love. Be it pop, rock, country or r&b, name it and I’ll listen to it as long as it’s good. (An aside, the way the girl is dressed in the photo, sneakers and jeans, that’s also my style. I’m more of a comfort over style girl and sneakers are definitely comfortable.)

Books // Of course books are part of my aesthetic. I have this blog about books, right? ๐Ÿคฃ I dedicate an unbelievable amount of time either writing, talking, reading or thinking about books. (Stares at bookshelves, at books stacked near bookshelves.)

Writing // I don’t know when writing started being something fun to do. I remember joining slogan-making and poetry contests in grade school, and, in high school, I joined the school newspaper where I wrote features. Then in college, I joined the university newspaper where I covered and wrote sports news. These days though I’m mostly writing, well, for this blog, dabble in fanfic here and there, and plot out stories I would love to write once I have enough of it – details, history, etc.

Dogs // I โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ dogs!!! I’ve had dogs for as long as I can remember. Right now, we have 5 dogs who are all sweet (and mischievous) and loving.

I’m tagging: Amy ๐Ÿ‚ Jennifer ๐Ÿ‚ Bibi ๐Ÿ‚ Shelea and anyone else who feels like doing this tag ๐Ÿ˜Š It’s okay if you don’t do this, no pressure. This is totally for fun.

      Thank you for reading, Jen! This was certainly fun to make. And thank you, that’s really flatteting because I like the way you write reviews, too. I’m hoping I could turn those plotted ideas into stories eventually. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    This is a great snapshot of your personality! I enjoyed reading it. Your beaches are so different than the ones around here, which are rocky and coldโ€”but still beautiful. Thank you for tagging me!

      Thank you for reading, Amy. I’m glad you enjoyed it because I certainly enjoyed thinking up & making this collage. I’ve always thought the pacific northwest is beautiful – a combination of mountain ranges and the ocean.
