IS THERE ANYBODY THERE?

I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently and its actually been a welcomed break. I've needed time to focus on myself and my family without the pressure of thinking of content for my blog.  Work has been stressful these past couple of weeks and I was having trouble sleeping because of it. Fletcher's also been under the weather recently with a cold/flu too which always makes me anxious. Thankfully some quality time with loved ones has really helped me to recharge my batteries. I do however feel like there are so many other amazing blogs out there now that people probably don't really care about what I have to say anymore because quite frankly i'm just another girl talking about her everyday life! And do people even read blogs anymore? Is there anybody even reading this?

I set up this blog 7 years ago to have as a bit of a diary of my life and its only been within the last few years that I've opened up about it to friends. I don't really know why I kept blogging a secret, maybe I was a little bit shy and embarrassed about it and I didn't want people to make fun of me for taking pictures of myself or to think I was full of myself. But as i've got older i've learnt not to really care what people think and actually the feedback i've had from my friends has been really positive and supportive.

If you follow me on Instagram (my favourite social media platform) you'll know that I've been getting a lot braver on Instastories and I have to say it's one of my favourite features on there now. I was a little shy at first and still absolutely hate hearing my Cornish accent but so many of you have commented to say how much you love my instastories and that I should vlog on YouTube.  I have been toying with vlogging and actually do already have a YouTube channel with 2 very cringy videos on it. But I just dunno, would people actually enjoy watching me go about my every day life?.........answers on a postcard. Plus I would need to buy a vlogging camera too, where the hell do i start with that!

Im not entirely sure where i'm going with this blogpost, I suppose I just wanted to have a chat about whats been on my mind recently.  I really want to create the most amazing content for my blog and I have all these wonderful ideas floating around in my teeny tiny brain but when it comes to putting pen to paper (so to speak) I get writers block! Or i'll read someone elses blog, compare it to mine and then want to just shut down my whole blog because it will never be as good as theirs.  Its true what they say "comparison is the thief of joy". I think I've been putting too much pressure on myself and I just need to reign it in and stick to the basics and remind myself why I set up this blog in the first place - for MYSELF as MY life diary and to write about things that I love. So that's what i'm sticking to and i'm gonna stop beating myself up about everything else.

I hope you all had wonderful weekends

POP OF LEOPARD

Top-Topshop
Jeggings-Primark
Boots - Old New Look

I've had these little booties for as long as I can remember..........ok since 2011! I will never forget it was Laura from buynowbloglater that featured them on her blog and I knew there and then that I needed to buy them. Isn't it funny how someone simply posting a picture of an item they have bought can persuade you to go out and buy it for yourself. The powers of social media hey.  Anyhow seeing as you can no longer buy these booties any longer here is another similar pair from ASOS which are currently in the sale.

I currently look nothing like I do in this photo though, i'm having a bit of a dressed down Sunday, hair is piled ontop of my head, minimal make up. The weather is abysmal today so we're having a day of snuggling under blankets, we've already watched the Lego Movie and we're now catching up on The Jump.  Just when I was starting to get excited for Spring the stupid bloody rain came and ruined my vibe. DAMN YOU RAIN!

KEEPING IT CASUAL

Parka : Hollister (Sold Out)
Knit : Marks & Spencer

When it comes to fashion I know what I like and I kinda stick to it. You'll nearly always find me in some sort of variation of skinny jeans and a cosy knit throughout the autumn/winter months. It's like my fail safe, I know it works, I won't stand out from the crowd and will hopefully just blend in with all the other Cornish folk. I usually team it with a pair of ankle boots, trainers or converse but today I threw in a bit of leopard print as I am just in love with these loafers so much (and I fake tanned the evening before so my feet weren't too pale haha)

I am however excited for Spring/Summer because I feel you can be much more diverse with your fashion choices. There are just so many options when the weather is warm, skirts, shorts, dungarees, camis, playsuits, cropped trousers,jumpsuits, sandals (oh I can't to get my toes out, i'm defo buying a pair of Saltwaters this year).

I really want to try and be more adventurous with my fashion this Spring/Summer.  For example I don't own a jumpsuit and I really want to add this to my wardrobe this year. Can you tell I'm excited for Winter to be over :-) I absolutely adore this poppy jumpsuit by Warehouse.
