CHANGING?

1 July 2018


Yeah, it's been a while.

I hope you're all well at least.

So I've decided to just basically refresh and change almost everything on my social media.

I'm tired of keeping a perfect pink girly theme, tired of worrying about whether something is out of place in a flatlay and to be honest aren't they kind of overdone these days? I've always preferred outfit posts more and back in the day on my old Tumblr/Myspace I would document myself more on them in my outfits than I ever did with what I'm doing now - or was doing.


Dress: H&M / Bag: Maison De Reefur / Necklace: UOB 


I just suddenly have a new confidence and it may be down to just finishing university, travelling solo to Tokyo or just moving house. I don't know, I honestly don't. But I feel like it is for the best I do this as I feel better in my own skin. Going to Japan made me kind of let go of an image I was trying to keep in place... a cutesy, small girl with big eyes and to keep wearing pretty ultra sickly girly clothing I just got fed up of it all honestly. 

"Gotta keep it pink"

"Oh god no! That black doesn't go with my feed... no, no!"

"What if I loose followers? Jesus no, I can't ruin my feed." 

"Pink, pink! Only pink!"






Honestly I became obsessed with Instagram that I was freaking out if the theme wasn't matching and then one day I thought to myself "This is fucking weird... wait, why am I doing this still?"

That's when I decided enough was enough. I had to change my feed, social media, ect just the whole direction of what I was doing. Don't get me wrong, I dish out kudos to those who are patient enough to keep a theme and are very strict with their content. But I just can't do it anymore and I want to experiment with new things. 

I love girly stuff still but I feel older, I feel like I need to go with this style I am building up and have been for some time now. I just haven't ever posted what I truly like. I always posted pretty and cute things because others liked it - I wasn't blogging of myself. But I have to go in a different direction and be truer to myself. I was in a dark place at the beginning of the year still and now I am slowly weaselling myself out of that hole.

I know this post sounds so petty over something a little silly but for me I feel like it's a big deal as a blogger. 

Sometimes change is just for the best and I need to keep the ball rolling if I am going to be a brighter person. 

This goes to the rest of you too who is reading, if you feel like you have to change then do it. It doesn't matter whether its your content, diet, course of study or whatever else. There is no point loitering in something making you dissatisfied and unhappy. Once that first set is made you'll sigh with relief and go with it. Just trust me, kay?

  1. I know exactly what you mean, a while ago I also only wanted to post pink even though I loved sharing pictures from my travels but didn't post them because they were not pink :S At some point I also got the crazy obsession that when I see something new on instagram that everyone seems to have, then I also HAD to have it, so weird actually.

    Such weight falls of your shoulders when you decide the post whatever the hell you want :) You go girl!

    1. Thank you so much! I think it becomes a bit of an obsession with Instagram and you get paranoid about matching feeds or if your followers don't like what you post... but we have to move forward and do what we have to do in order to be happy! x
