Raw post about nothing.

Wednesday, April 13, 2016


I logged onto HR tonight with the intention to blog about something I had recieved in the mail a while ago. It was going to be another stock standard feature but something in me absolutely detested the idea of writing another review.
I sat here on my computer for a good 20 minutes trying to think about what I can blog about. While thinking my train of thought went wondering and I started to remember the first time I blogged and how exciting it was to me. I used to get butterflies in my stomach just thinking about what I would wear to work and how I would style the blog feature around one key piece of clothing. It has now been  7 years since I first started blogging and in the blogosphere I would be around 150 years old and positively over the hill. Back then there weren't many bloggers, especially none of these hugely successful bloggers you see today. Back then there was still a stigma attached to posting your outfits online for the world to see (and SCRUTINISE). Oh how the times have changed!
I would get as much hate from weird online trolls as I would from people from my own community. Though no one would say it to my face (actually there was one girl who I worked with who said my blog posts were "annoying" so she unfollowed me. Now she is an avid follower on Instagram "insert eye roll") I knew people would talk about me behind closed doors and it would always come back to me. Now it is almost a crime if you DONT post pictures online. Everyday is a new selfie and you are considered weird if you don't overshare your life. The internet has become so over saturated with bloggers posting "outfit" pictures and "what I wore" posts that I am starting to feel very MEH about it. Don't get me wrong, I still love fashion and everything it entails but it is all starting to turn a little stale and I feel as though I am walking in no particular direction. I want to evolve into something completely different. I have no idea what or how I am going to do it but it is something that has been on my mind for a while.

I want the butterflies back.

  1. I've pretty much been following you for 5-6 years and have always loved your laid back style and feminine/sleek outfits. Totally get why you feel that way, I do even after only posting for a year or so but I do hope you get your butterflies back because we love your posts. Zaynab (Roses&Lipstick) xx
