Is it spring yet? Moodboard

Tuesday, 17 February 2015
I was over winter as soon as November hit but unfortunately thats not how the seasons work and its only just started to be a smidge more warm and the skies a little bluer. I even saw from a bus window some flowers growing (through the rain) but FLOWERS people.

A conversation with a friend last night made me think about how different my 2015 could of been if I went to a different university. Before my gap year, I got accepted into Fashion Journalism at LCF and also Journalism at City.  Sometimes I don't know whether I made the right choice because I genuinely have a ~passion~ for fashion (literally, I wanna die writing that. how cringey) and I miss London huge amounts. I love Liverpool and English, which is what I'm doing now, but I have a horribly irritating habit of romanticising 'what could of been' and nostalgia basically ruins my life.

In turn I think I've pushed away this blog not only because of choosing to not study fashion but because of the influx of professional bloggers and youtube stars and sponsored weirdness. I felt completely alienated from the blogging world which was much more casual a couple of years ago (this is not an insult or negative tone or shame on anyone btw, go bloggers!). But I completely lost an outlet to write about fashion and document cool places or cute clothes because of my self-imposed detachment. This coupled with the London/fashion uni sadness led to a sort of divorce with that ~passion for fashion~.

Fear not readers though (if anyone is still reading) I really want to make my blog back how it was kind of in the spring of 11' because I would genuinely come home from school and want to blog every night and take pictures all weekend and obsess over it. I have a lot of free time that I don't use constructively and seeing as NO-ONE IN LIVERPOOL will give me a job, I might as well fall back in love with my blog. So, this spring-cool chicks-tumblr-vision/moodboard is kind of a homage to that.

  1. Glad your getting back into blogging. Your blog was one of the first blogs me and my friend came upon ages and ages ago, no joke! It's crazy how blogging has developed. It's the cool laid back ones that aren't in it for the freebies or ' fame ' that I like in a blog. I love the old school ones too where you snap a picture in the comfort of your own room rather then the ' look at me I'm a model'. Also can relate on the Uni course decision - I wish I had took a different one sometimes and think what if. Llh x

  2. Hey gurl

    1. As a History and French grad who pretty much wished the same thing as you, you'll find your way back. I honestly have no regrets about my degree - I studied in Canterbury away from my beloved London but it did me good. You'll have lived in a different city for at least 3 years, picked up some awesome skills earned from doing an Arts degree and you'll be able to change your mind.
    2. You'll find your way back to fashion. Just get as much experience as possible, and keep this blog going. You're a good writer and blogger and I enjoy reading your blog (which is why I follow it!)
    3. Eff the others! Hahahaa... I joke but the blogging world is just that: a world. Choose the bit you want to inhabit and stay there. There's loads of us at We-Celebrate-Bloggers-Doing-Great-But-This-Sponsorship-Thing-Is-A-Bit-Weird Island.

  3. I have unfollowed a huge chunk of fashion bloggers that I follow years ago because I didn't feel they were any more genuine or authentic. I felt like I was always being talked into buying stuff. Also, meh, because I got older and my interests have changed so now, I follow artsy, wordy blogs more. But I never unfollowed you for the reason you are so casual and laid-back. You show your outfits and adventures like you would a friend and I prefer that :)

  4. Wow! Thanks for sharing a bit from your life here. And let me tell you, you are one of my most favourite bloggers ever. I'm getting sick of the oh-so-perfect blogs with every single post planned, and with pictures that just don't look like they're from real life. I just love to see spontaneity somewhere, taking a picture with your phone in your own room... I've never had a fashion blog, but at some point I was thinking about being a fashion journalist. I found out that I wouldn't want to be a part of that world though. You may find out you couldn't make a better choice with studying what you're studying now. xxx
