Back In The Blogging Game

I'm the worst okay? THE WORST. I haven't sat down to write with my laptop for 2 months. I've had a blog for coming up 7 years.. that's like nearly a third of my life. That is longer than I've committed to a lot of things in my life, be it a job, a hobby or boyfriend... definitely not boyfriend. I've just found it really difficult to sit down and just write. I often feel like I've got so much to speak about but then nothing to say at the same time. I think I overthink too much.. see I'm doing it now, thinking I'm overthinking about overthinking.. I'm getting there with not caring what people think, but it's sometimes a big hurdle to overcome.  But over the past few months, my blogging game has sucked. In all honesty, its been quite nice. I've missed sharing my outfits and thoughts, but not so much the handwork that goes on behind the scenes. And not that each person's blogging journey should ever be compared, but it is super hard to compete with those fabulous hard-working girls that do the full-time  thing and therefore you can end up feeling a bit shitty.


I do put a lot of pressure on myself. I know I do. When I make a decision about something, I'm either all in or all out. I'd describe myself as quite a excessive person in that respect.  Just like you won't catch me wearing a trend just the once, I'm more the type to buy 10 corduroy jackets in each and every colour because I need a rainbow selection to match every possible outfit combination. And just like with blogging, I'll be committed to doing 3 posts a week or I won't blog for 3 months. But that's something I'm here to work on..
It is interesting to see how the landscape of blogging has changed so much since I started back in 2011. Pretty darn crazy.. It's funny to reminisce of the days of photos taken on the self timer of my Sony Ericsson phone in my back garden. Chatting about my A-Levels and dreaming of how one day I'd move to London and work in fashion. Now that I'm living it, blogging has taken a backseat in my life and I've put other things like my career, exercise and having fun first. Aaaaaand, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. 

But here I am, back at it.. back in the game. Writing about why I haven't been writing because thats about all my brain is giving me right now.
