It's been a while......


Apologies that I've been AWOL from the blog. Have you missed me?

Hand on heart I lost all motivation for it. People seem to prefer the instant inspiration gratification you get from Instagram these days.....myself included. I started to think the blog wasn't relevant any more. However, I had a little unplanned Instagram break - as in I didn't post everyday (as I usually would) for a couple weeks over the festive period. I just didn't feel like sharing. I actually found it hard to put an outfit together most days. I lacked inspiration and felt as if as I'd just fallen out of love with my wardrobe. It got me thinking about why I started on this blogging and social media journey. I realised I needed to go back to my roots to find the joy again. 

So here I am......with a plan. Let's see how this goes. I aim to do a short 'outfit of the day' post Saturday through to Wednesday. A lot of my favourite pieces are past season and I'm back into preloved clothing in a big way so I will find an alternative to link.....this is something I've always enjoyed researching. Please let me know if you find that useful. As I work part time on Thursday's and Friday's and it is nigh on impossible for me to get a decent photo at this time of year I thought I'd do a 'weekly confessional' each Thursday of what I've purchased during the week whether it be clothing, accessories or even a new product. If it's an item of clothing I'm going to show you at least 3 ways I intend to style the new wardrobe addition. On a Friday I'm going to do a "what's on my radar' post. Things that have caught my eye over the course of the week that I've jotted down on my wish list. I'm just going to keep the posts short and sweet as I know we are all pretty short of time.....and I'm guilty of being a skim reader of blogs myself. Ok, time to stop waffling. Without further ado........let's kick off this new regime with what I'm wearing today.

    1. Thank you Melissa! I often feel guilty for spending to much time on Instagram and so often don’t read caption, I just scroll and but not comment. I am looking forward to cracking on with my new plans xx

    1. It’s hard to know what to do isn’t it?! I have to admit to not finding a great deal of inspiration these days on Instagram and apart from Pinterest (which is also full of ad’s) I don’t know where else to look these days! I’m glad to be back and so far really chuffed with the feedback! :0) xx
