AVERAGE WORKING DAY: A MINI ACCOUNT

Freelancing can be tough when it comes down to creating a routine for yourself – especially when travel opportunities arise and disrupt any chance of you knowing what day it is, or what project you need to focus on next. I can almost hear the yeah, sounds real tough thoughts coming at me through the screen, but bare with me here. When you’re a one man band, it can be difficult to spread yourself across all different areas of your work, it can sometimes make you feel overwhelmed, or just down right bloody useless…

DO YOU NEED A NICHE TO GET ALONG?

I got to thinking about how important having a niche is when it comes to blogging – I never really set out to be a one trick pony when it came to my blog, but I realised that my own vision for my blog, isn’t necessarily what everyone else might see. For instance, I’d love to make more travel content, and I love to discuss beauty too – but you wouldn’t really gage that from a quick scan through my content. I realised that it’s very easy to pigeon hole yourself when it comes to expressing yourself online, but that shouldn’t stop us from evolving and trying new things…

A PLAYLIST FOR APRIL

It’s been a while since I shared a playlist around these parts, so here’s a compilation of everything I’ve been humming along to over the past few months! We are heading to Primavera at the end of May and I couldn’t be more excited. One of the things on my bucket list for this year was to get out and listen to more live music whenever possible – Barcelona seems like a great place to start, and I can’t wait to explore a brand new city…

BUISNESS VS CREATIVITY

For a long time, I struggled to understand where I fit in the career world – I’ve never really been motivated by money, and was always driven by the fact that I didn’t want to sit in the same office space all day long. I bagged myself numerous retail jobs when I graduated, and remember being endlessly frustrated that it was all about convincing customers to by pieces they probably didn’t need, endless sales figures, and copious amounts of stress over the festive period…

SPRING SATIN & SHOPPING HABITS

I love a simple satin blouse and probably always will – it’s one of those pieces I can wear all year round and it’s never not appropriate. I love how it adds a subtle festive feel to an outfit during the winter months – particularly with a red lip, and some black high waist trousers. However, it’s equally as beautiful for spring/summer with denim and lots of layered jewellery – I’m never without gold accents, they really add a certain charm to a minimal look, which lets face it, is pretty much an everyday occurrence with me…

THE KNITTED TANK TOP

A knitted tank top probably sounds like something your old history teacher wore, but bare with me here. This little navy tank was gifted to me when I first started blogging, it was one of the first clothing pieces that I was kindly sent, and I’ve kept it in my collection ever since. Despite it being of the knitted variety, it’s something I only dig out during the warmer months. I’ve worn in plenty of times with high waist jeans and a utility jacket thrown over the top for a really easy daytime look. It’s perfect if you feel like showing a little more skin, whilst keeping you snug at the same time…

MAKING A NEW SPACE HOME

It’s been a none stop couple of weeks, and any kind of a routine has been put to the back burner. We have slowly been settling into the new place, and getting a feel for the new area. It’s still an area that we very much know and love, but everything feels slightly askew when your daily surroundings change. I have to say, being internet free for a few days has been kind of wonderful – that along with the distraction of unpacking have meant that I’ve spent way less time staring at my laptop and scrolling through various social media apps…

A MOVING VLOG

We moved last Friday so I thought I’d vlog the day to look back on – it ended up being more of a music montage but I hope you like it anyway! Can’t wait to get stuck into some new videos when we are settled…

MOVING DAY

Today is moving day, and I’m currently surrounded by cardboard boxes and dirty laundry as I write this – we have lived in this little flat for just over three years now, so leaving is definitely a bittersweet affair. I can’t wait to live in a different area of Manchester and make a new space feel like home, but we have so many memories here that it almost feels like we are leaving something behind. I feel this way about all the places I have ever lived – I’m an incredibly sentimental soul, and it only takes picking up an old paint splattered photograph to set me off…

THE PROBLEM WITH OVERSHARING

Oversharing has always seemed like a bit of a problematic term to me – particularly as someone who is quite an honest person, and tends to wear their heart on their sleeve. What does oversharing really mean anyway? It seems like one of those things that everyone will feel slightly different about – everyone sits somewhere slightly different on the oversharing scale. Oversharing is defined as: revealing an inappropriate amount of detail about one’s personal life. However, I think there’s a fine line between oversharing, and just being an authentic person to those around you…
