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.

Hi friends! How are you all? It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Where should I start? Well, I have a new website! I don’t know if you’ll be able to see much different as who even looks at peoples’ site design. I now have a fancy page for my work, titled ‘portfolio’ and have updated the layout to make it a little easier for you guys to shop my outfits and things I’m fancyin’.

Next up, I’m moving in with Kim! I’ve mentioned it here before (I think) but I’ll be moving into his current flat after a little change around of furniture etc but it’s all very exciting. I’ve honestly gone homeware mad, I think it’s driving Kim insane but hopefully it’ll mean some lovely content over here. I’d love to vlog the move but it’s going to be a little bit all over the place as we don’t have a set move in date, so we’ll see how it goes.

Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to see from me, I’d love to know! I’m thinking of doing room-by-room blog posts as well as getting back to some old school outfit posts as I really do miss blogging as it was in 2012.
