It’s no secret that I’ve battled with self-doubt since returning to the world of blogging. I’ve often spoken about feelings of self-consciousness and the vulnerability that comes with ‘putting yourself out there’.
It’s fair to say these feelings were more than tested the other day, when I was made aware that someone I know (not a friend!) had been ridiculing my blog and Instagram posts. I immediately had that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach, and felt completely shocked and confused as to why they would do this. After mulling it over, it soon dawned on me that this won’t have been the first time this has happened, and unfortunately it won’t be the last.
At the start of the month, I was invited to a cocktail masterclass at The Cosy Club in Birmingham. Now, I may be an expert in drinking cocktails, but I’m certainly a complete novice when it comes to making them!
One of the main reasons I started blogging again was to share honest reviews. It’s tempting just to say everything is great, in fear of offending brands. But most of them really value an honest opinion – plus, I’d hate the thought of someone wasting their money!
So everything I share in this video has been handpicked as a genuine favourite. I really hope it gives you some inspiration, and if it does encourage you to try something new, I hope you enjoy using it as much as I do!
