I did a little revamping of the Not A Model logo. While that photo with the kitchen gloves and crooked heart has been a staple on this blog for awhile, it doesn't quite feel like me anymore. Granted, that photo was taken about five years ago, (and I haven't worn fuchsia pink washing gloves since) so it makes sense to want something that is a better representation of the person behind this blog.
The new logo was simply created by using the same handwriting that I use to scrawl in my notebooks daily. It's a scribble, a simple design, nothing fancy or too perfect - just like Not A Model's personality in general.
The other night I watched a movie with one of my best friends called Beginners. I won't give away too much, but basically it's about starting over, no matter what your age or stage is in life. (The father-figure in the film starts over at 75 years old). It's about trying a new direction and really, in life, if we embrace it, we're all beginners at something.
Lately, I find myself in a bit of a emotional slump for a better choice of a word, but I have decided that it's never too late to start fresh again - like with a new logo, a new look or a new dream plan, for example.
This week's Not A Model mantra is as follows:
"You can learn new things at any time in your life if you're willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you." -Barbara Sher
Lastly, you also may notice the lack of a contributor tab up top as well. While I loved each and every post from my lovely female writing army, it wasn't quite working at the moment and it seemed for the best to close it right now. A lot of the girls have their own projects and adventures going on, so I encourage you to keep up with them! I may bring back the contributor program in the future, but for now, you can still read all about the favourites in the Not A Model archives. xx
