Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder.


I'm not sure if this is something which should be admitted to my followers, but I seem to be lacking in any kind of motivation to do my blogging at the moment and it has subconsciously taken a back seat in my life. Since my blog started to grow around a year ago it has been a huge passion of mine and finding the time and effort to do this around a full time job has always been second nature to me. Taking outfits to work to shoot in the evening and doing shoot after shoot at the weekend to make sure I have enough images to post during the week has been what I have been doing for months. Sometimes life gets in the way, and unfortunately if you have a strong presence on social media this can really affect your success and ground it to a halt.




A lot of things have happened in my life this year, and I can definitely say it has been the worst year of my life. My Dad passed away in April after being diagnosed with Cancer 3 years ago and other recent events have definitely put me to the test too. However not everything has been negative. I started a new job around a month ago and it is everything I was hoping for. I described it as "the amazing job you delusionally think you'll go straight into after uni" and it is a huge step up from where I was at before. People think that blogging is easy and automatically presume that if you post regularly it is a full time job for you, however I work Monday - Friday and have to fit it in whenever I can around this.



Some bloggers are extremely lucky. They have a huge group of friends and a boyfriend so always have someone on hand to snap their #OOTD, and have a clean looking flat with white walls and a huge mirror for those perfect mirror selfies. Unfortunately my friendship group consists of a small amount of people and I live in the tiniest room of my flat so can hardly walk around my bed for my huge amount of clothes let alone fit a full size mirror in. But without these things you have to do what you can to make things work. H&M fitting rooms are a godsend to me as they have the perfect lighting for mirror selfies, and fortunately I have an amazing Mum who will happily take my blog pictures for me if my photographer is busy.


This wasn't intentionally a blog post about how utterly shit my life has been, but I wanted to explain both to myself and my followers why I might not have been as motivated as I should have been over the last few months. Unfortunately life gets in the way sometimes, and this might mean that I don't have what it takes to be a blogger or it might mean I just needed a little time out, however hopefully I can find the motivation to get back to what I love doing the most.

  2. Thank you for being open and honest.

    This is particularly refreshing to read considering a lot of material seen on insta particularly from bloggers shows a lifestyle to envy and something most cannot afford.

    Thank you for being open and honest, basically putting a message out that hard work pays off!
