THE NEXT CHAPTER.


To be honest, this blog post has been a long time coming! You may have noticed it throughout 2018 that I kind of fell out of love with blogging and while I have tried (& forced) myself to fall in love with this industry again - I just don’t think I can, I just need to reinvent it all. I feel like in a way I have lost myself and my identity trying to fit in to an industry where at times I feel like I just don’t belong anymore. I adore fashion, style and of course clothes but I think the more I delve into the blogging industry at times, the more I see it depends on fast fashion brands too much and that is having such a negative impact on the environment along with my actual conscience. Don’t get me wrong, I won’t be able to completely step away from different brands but I will be putting a firm reign on what I buy, how much I buy and my fashion footprint on the world. I feel a constant pressure to have the newest items in stock, be ahead of the trend and buy clothes I don’t actually really love to have constant new content. I am forgetting about investment pieces I own, love and adore whilst also losing my own fashion identity all to gain numbers on an app that does not validate my worth or existence more than the next person.
Of course I will still continue to share my looks and outfits I love but I think they will be few and far in between. I am tired of feeling this constant guilt of not creating enough content and never having enough time to focus on myself, discover what I love and work on creating the best life imaginable for myself. I have felt uninspired for quite some time and I want that spark back in my life again, I want that spring back in my step. I have been so blessed and lucky to work with some amazing brands over the last 5+ years. I have been brought on trips of a lifetime and have had a never ending list of pinch me moments. I have also made the most incredible group of friends who will continue to inspire me away from the fashion world. Brands like Primark, PrettyLittleThing, JD Sports, Nasty Gal and too many more to mention have treated me like family over the last few years and I honestly cannot thank and praise each and every single one of them enough for their support throughout this blogging journey. I hope my next chapter will involve working with some of these incredible people that I have met during my "Love Life" Chapter hopefully at another stage.
I feel like I haven't even made a dent in this amazing world. There is so many places I want to see, feelings I want to feel and memories I want to make, outside of a computer screen and not through a camera lens (well not all the time, haha). Life is short, sweet and a complete and utter roller coaster at the best of times but I wouldn’t have it any other way. We work to live, not live to work!
So while one chapter may be closing in my book, a new one is just starting. Who knows what is next for me? All I do know is I plan on spending every minute of my life laughing through any pain, day-dreaming my days away and smiling when it is the very last thing I want to do because life is too damn short to wait until tomorrow. This isn’t the complete end of my journey within the blogging/fashion industry, this is just the end of this chapter and time for me to start a new one. Who knows what is next - maybe a podcast, a re-brand or something completely different, I am looking forward to starting something new, fresh & exciting.
To every single one of you who have read, followed and enjoyed my blog Love Life etc over the last few years - THANK YOU! Because of your constant support, I have been able to experience things I never thought imaginable, made friends I never thought I would meet and follow my dreams when I didn't think it was possible. I have loved, lived and enjoyed every single minute but it's time to start something new. Who knows what the next chapter holds? All I know is I am excited to continue following my dreams!
THANK YOU XO
