Investing in self-care

Investing in self-care

Like many, I have been trying my best to find some positives during this challenging time. We are all battling with uncertainty and have no idea how long the apocalyptic state will last. As someone who has struggled with anxiety for years, one of my coping mechanisms has always been to focus on what I can control, rather than what I can’t.

As as self-professed ‘busy bee’, I can often neglect self-care and let the ‘me time’ sink towards the bottom of my priorities list. So I’ve used this time to reignite those feel good rituals and I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you.

This song (Unpretty by TLC) came on the radio the other day, and despite having listened to it on numerous occasions, I honestly felt every lyric and even had a little cry at the end. For me, it hit home about how insecure I can feel at times; insecure about my image, my life and what people think.

Back to basics: Redefining my style

Back to basics: Redefining my style

Running a fashion blog can often require you to be daring, bold and attention-grabbing. And in a bid to stand out on social media, sometimes the most garish outfits are deliberately chosen to lure in those new followers.

After six months of blogging, I’m keen to rewrite my own fashion rules (thank you InTheFrow!). I want to recreate my own style, and not get lost in the world of accepting every gifted or sponsored outfit that comes my way.

The prospect of redefining my style really excites me, and I hope you enjoy coming on this new journey with me.
