Slow it Down

I haven't had the chance yet to head out and do some photography(which is coming very soon) but today I wanted to share just a few shots I've had lying around on my laptop for a while. Taken at the start of Spring.

In addition, I also just wanted to do a little write up about something I've been thinking a lot about lately. Without pouring my heart out here haha for a while I've been really confused on what I want to do in my life (career wise) and I put a ridiculous amount of pressure on myself 'all the time' to achieve and do! Whether that be to make sure I've worked out, or make sure I've done that post or even just be active on social media. And from that I've began to question why I keep putting this pressure on myself; I've came to realise it's because I always want more. Which isn't a bad thing but it's not necessary always a good thing either.

I no longer wanna be putting this pressure on myself to post online because I think it's going to build the views on here. That's not what I started this site for, I started it as a place just for 'ME' for me to put anything creative I make. And the longer I've been doing it, the more I feel it turning from 'my' creative place and me trying to make it more of a business.

I've struggled for a really long time on what it is that I was thinking/feeling or why I felt odd about the site; and for some reason I just couldn't put my finger on it; until last night when it hit me. Because of how much social media has grown in this 21st century it becomes almost expected that you will make a living out of this world but that's not and isn't always the case.

Before I bore you all too much, I just want to say I feel like this is the time for me to try new things, this site is all I've worked on in my spare time since I was 15!! It's definitely time for me to discover new things away from my laptop. So this isn't me saying I'm stopping any activity on here because I'm not but I'm definitely slowing it down and this is no longer a blog in my eyes. It's my place to share with whoever wishes to read and view my work, my style and my music loves. There's going to be new thing's on here as of when things happen in my everyday life, I'm kind of done with going out of my way to make a 'style diary' happen or to 'photography' that latest style trend.

I am beyond appreciative of any support you guys have given me so far and I love seeing others enjoying my style and music interest, so thank you so much for that. I'm still here (&on social media) just in less of a blog way I guess!! I hope this makes sense.

Thank ya'll & we shall speak soon rather than later, 

lots of love,
