I’m a bit late to jump on the bandwagon.. oh well, I would usually be the type of person to say oh god, none of that new year new me bullshit, which I probably tweeted before the new year or on the 1st January, hungover clutching my coffee mug in bed. I sat back recently and thought, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to make some changes, it’s a new year so why not? We’re all working towards new goals and to live a better life, aren’t we? I have set goals for this year, maybe they are a little ambitious but we’ll see, but there is nothing wrong with trying to become a better version of ourselves. It’s not just a new year for me, it’s a year with blogging and a chance to reflect on what went well in the past year and what didn’t go so well and what I can improve, it’s a chance for me to think about my brand, my voice and where I want this crazy little space I have on the internet to go.
I know that fashion to some people is everything, ok well for me it is, but for some people, they don’t really care, and that’s fine too of course. I’ve watched myself get quite lazy with my style over the last few months of 2017 and it’s something I want to bring back, I used to be the girl who wasn’t afraid to wear dresses and would often wear a cute little skirt, turtleneck top and a pair of black boots. Over the last few months, I’ve pretty much worn a tracksuit every day, I’ve practically lived in loungewear, which is okay, sometimes. I didn’t put any effort in because I always thought, well I’m not girly anyway or I don’t look like this style blah blah (You know the comparison down spiral I’m talking about right?). It’s almost like I felt that I didn’t deserve to dress really nice, or feel good about myself. I know, crazy right?!
When you look good, you feel good, it’s true. When you take your monthly trip to the salon to have your hair washed, coloured, blow-dried and styled you feel 100 times happier than if you did before you went in, I mean unless your hairdresser thinks the 2000’s striped highlights are back in…
I worked so hard in December, I decided to treat myself to a whole new wardrobe which you can shop here , I wanted to go for a style which was still very me, but a reinvented version, I am going to spend this year trying to define my style and share with you more of my favourite high street picks more regularly. Don’t be afraid to ditch your old style and try something new once in a while, it’s good for personal growth and the better you feel about yourself, the healthier for the mind, don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone more often this year.
