The next train to leave the station on platform 6 is the 15.58 to Exuseville. Well I better board!
All jokes aside, the blog has been looking a little bit bleak in recent months. It calls out to me everyday, I know its there and I know its importance, but my blogging mojo has been a little low in this time of ‘world being turned upside down due to house renovations’.
I know that doesn’t seem like much of an excuse when you have bloggers that are travelling all over, or working full time and juggling a blog and they sill manage to do it which is awesome.
But there are a few holdbacks for me at the moment which has made my blogging life a little bit harder. Now lets start with the obvious. My house is a shit hole. It’s been a shit hole for a few months now. Everything is out of place, there are holes in walls, flooring missing, piles of materials stacked up waiting to be used not to mention its a continuous cycle of laundry everywhere. I know I have a studio specifically for my work, its an office with plenty of filming space. It’s a perfect controlled environment for filming, however I want my blog to be a little, well close to home, not white white white.
I want to use this space to express feelings, mind bogglings, personal style, beauty and anything that I need space to clear my mind. So with regards to taking photos for the blog, when my surroundings are so chaotic, I cant really get great images with all this going on around me.
I know sometimes its nice to see content thats a little more relatable and stepping away from the typical white marble rose gold blogger mansion aesthetic, however showing off my new favourite lip products with Matthew’s Festool collection laying around isn’t the most well, visually pleasing.
Excuse number two is that I have no one to help me take photos. Unfortunately I don’t have a boyfriend or a flatmate thats around a lot and savvy with a camera, I mean Maff tries bless him, but its a struggle to get a money shot. So getting an outfit shot out and about photos is so hard and I refuse to do static shots against my white wall, that would be so boring! There are so many inspiring blogs that get me excited like Zoe’s, Lily’s and Victoria’s that I love and aspire to be like and I wont settle for second best.
So what I’m saying without sounding like a moaning Myrtle is that I don’t want to do a half arsed job. I want my blog to be inspiring too and nice to read and for it to look good. Im an all or nothing kinda girl. The blog may be on hold for a little while longer until the house is all beautiful and I can finally do some lifestyle content. Im going to try trickle some posts in in the mean time, test out the studio for photos, but if there is anything you’d like me to write about that wouldn’t really require MY photos, then let me know. love to get feedback on what you like to read.
