Personal Growth


Today was one of those days...I sometimes get those kind of 'umph' days where I feel as though everything i do goes wrong, and no matter what i do it doesn't matter anyway as compared to everyone else its never going to be as good, and i should probably just give up.
Feeling like this is one of the worst feelings, however I thought i'd bring it up on my blog, just incase anyone else feels this- you're not alone! I constantly feel it with my blog, always comparing myself to other, bigger bloggers who work so so hard on their blogs and also at uni and how hard and important this final year is for me and how far behind i already feel. 

Sometimes i just have to tell myself comparing myself to other people is silly, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, and also within the blogging world, everyone supports everyone for each other's different styles and fashion sense, and its one of the most friendly communities i've ever been part of and i'm so grateful for the lovely comments everyone leaves me, i read every single one. I just love to style and make up outfits to post on here and maybe inspire some of your outfit choices, as i know every fashion blog i read gives me inspiration for outfits too! So this was just a little post to anyone who sometimes feels like they're not good enough and why bother doing what you're doing, keep doing what you love, as if you love something you're doing and you're putting your all into it, you're already succeeding! Also, hard work never fails to go unnoticed, so if you do feel behind in work/school, put in those extra hours of researching/reading and studying as it will all pay off in the long run and you will understand it and do well.

Sorry this was such a long post than usual, my fingers hit the keyboard and just kept on going! Hope this helps anyone in a similar situation to mine!

  8. You're literally speaking my mind. Lately, I've been feeling a bit down (not just with blogging) but in life in general. It's tough out there and we all just have to keep pushing and work hard for what we want! Wishing you the best!
