I never finish anyt-

I thought I'd write a little ode to me never finishing anything, or more specifically, never finishing anything I commit to online.

Now I’m actually a person who usually, once committed to something, will never leave it half finished. I stuck out a foundation diploma that I hated every bloody minute of, stayed with an ex I should’ve left sooner for eight whole years, will always clean a room within an inch of it’s life and never just spring clean, and have even had the same car since I was 17. I’m not sure if I’m just really sentimental, or just hate quitting something I’ve dedicated time or effort to.

In essence I don’t really know what the point in this blog post was. I think it might have been to express some frustration I have with my own motivation when it comes to my blog, and content in general. For example, if you’re a long term reader you may remember some of the many series I’ve started on this blog. There was a Sunday update at one point many moons ago, then monthly favourites and most recently - ‘The Weekly Edit’. I managed three posts, not even all on time and then I gave up. I gave up because a) I didn’t think anyone was finding them useful and b) I think my motivation behind sticking with something is if I, or someone else is benefitting from it, or it makes life easier, or is something I simply can’t avoid doing and I don’t think any fitted those categories.

I often find that I have all these great ideas when it comes to shooting or writing, and they either never come off or they don’t come out as planned and then I get fed up with myself. So really, I need to stop putting so much pressure on myself to live up to expectations I can’t always meet.

I think what I need to take from this, is while I can’t commit to certain pressures and promise content I can’t create, I don’t need to. I can create as I can and wish and so can you. So many people I know who work in this industry are struggling with keeping up with posting schedules and succumbing to the pressure of three Instagram’s a day and two videos a week but are unhappy with what they’re creating and that’s entirely not why any of us started this! There’s no worse content than forced content (it’s always pretty obvious) so I think we all just need to take a step back.

This is my career and I do by all means take it seriously and work bloody hard but some times we all just need a little break from the constant online life.

So here’s to creating content I love, as and when I can and hopefully that in itself will motivate me to create more often. Hope you enjoyed this random word vomit, I’ve had a wine.

swimwear favourites

Summer in the UK might be on it’s way out, but that doesn’t mean we’re not heading off abroad. Kim and I have just booked a trip to Lisbon for the end of September and we’re hoping for early 20s in terms of temperature, so there’s still a hope for some bikini action. We’re also planning to do Bali in November so I’m keeping my eyes peeled.

Shop my favourites below - let me know of any upcoming trips too as I like to live vicariously through other people.

some recent outfits

Thought I’d share some of my recent outfits with you guys here as I often find it hard to shoot full looks for the blog nowadays yet share content on Instagram every day - or try to.

Outfit one; Barcelona day time


Outfit two; swimwear at Soho Farmhouse


Outfit three; casual day outfit in Barcelona


Outfit four; all white


Outfit five; linen midi


So lately I’ve not been able to post as often as I’d like due to the bloody house move but I have been really enjoying more neutral tones and darker backgrounds. I’ve tried to link everything below the picture or similar if it’s out of stock!

I’m also loving big ugly dad sandals too. I think they’re the perfect remedy when it comes to ‘dressing down’ a prettier dress. I think it works with my tattoos and piercings to make it look a big rougher around the edges. What are you thoughts on ugly sandals?
