Realistions About My Blog.

So yesterday at the #BloggersFestival I had the opportunity to talk to a lot of other bloggers and also some fantastic brands. One lady in particular I had a good chat with was at Mode Media (Im terribly sorry I don't remember your name) and it really got me thinking about some things. 

Although I don't want my blog to be my job I am proud of it.

While I totally admire people who are working towards making their blog their job, mine is purely my hobby and I have no intention to change that. I love the people I have met through it and even in this few short months I couldn't have imagined the opportunities I would have had. That said, I love my job I have. I love that its nothing to do with my blog, and I get to use my blog as a way of escaping almost. I don't know if I would still feel that way if I was doing this full time.

I like that I don't have to post everyday. I can post whatever I want and I can post it when I want. Its lovely to have people read my ramblings and Ive made some great friends.

I don't have to worry about being a fashion or beauty blogger because I'm not.

I absolutely love meeting fashion bloggers, but I know that I will never be one. I mean I get dressed everyday and I can show you how I put together pieces I buy in charity shops but I wouldn't class myself as stylish. Some girls seem to just do it effortlessly (Im sure behind the scenes there is a lot more that goes on that I know but hey)

I also don't really wear makeup. Shock horror I know, and so I will obviously review bits that I do use, but theres no point me pretending to be an expert on foundations when I only own two and one is far too dark for me and the other I was given because my friend didn't like it.

But you know what? Thats ok. I have started thinking recently that I need to fit some kind of mould, but I am not going to. I am going to be me. Uncensored me.

I am going to stay true to my budget ways.

I am a thrifty girl at heart and I think my blog needs to reflect that. I am as guilty as the next person of splurging now and again but I can't lie - I'm pretty tight! I think cost and worth are totally separate! I don't begrudge spending money on quality items, but I will always put on my blog if I think something is not worth the money. I will even tell you if I think something is worth the money ... but I still wouldn't spend that!!

If you have made it this far well done!

Thanks for reading the ramble and I hope that I can continue to grow my blog and hopefully have some more amazing experiences along the way.


  1. I absolutely love this! Stay true to yourself girl, you rock it.

  2. Staying true to yourself is the only way to make a blog stand out. Blogging for money stands out a mile away, yours is one of my favourite blogs to read because you are so honest, frank and interesting!
