THOUGHTS | Making Changes...

Wednesday, 13 January 2016
January is the month of making changes but this year, I haven't made any new years resolutions. I've accepted that I make the same ones every year and it just doesn't work for me. I can't change overnight, but I can work towards something. I've made a list of things that I want to achieve this year, and set some goals to work towards. I think goals are more realistic - they accept that you won't change into a clean-eating super-organised gym bunny overnight, that sometimes you'll feel motivated and others you won't. So as I thinking about things I want to do this year, there was one thing that stood out.  

It's quite obvious that I haven't been blogging as much over the last year and there's so many reasons why. Things changed so much in 2015. It all started when we bought our first house - it needed a lot of work, and we devoted most of our time, money and brain capacity to renovating it. We're still working on it a year later and my priorities have totally changed. I don't spend all my money on clothes and make-up any more, because I'd rather spend it on things for my house. I never thought I'd say it, but I enjoy shopping in ikea more than primark these days, and I browse pinterest more than asos. I think that's why I've been struggling to think of new blog content - my head is telling me I need to write about clothes and beauty products, when those things aren't playing a huge part in my life at the moment.

The way I've been thinking about it is, 'if I were to start a brand new blog today, what it would it be about?' and the answer is that I'd make it 80% lifestyle and interiors, and 20% fashion (with the odd beauty post when there's a new product that I just have to tell you about). I want to write about whatever is on my mind - whether it's interiors, a list, an idea, a rant, anything. So that's what I need to do. I need to stop clinging on to how my blog used to be, and to let it change as I change, because I'll only ever be able to write interesting posts if it's something I find interesting in the first place. 

My main goal for this year is to love to my blog again, to chill out and write about whatever interests me that day, without putting pressure on myself to stick to a certain theme. With that said, I have a few ideas already and hope you're looking forward to reading some new posts!

  1. I am looking forward to new blog posts - especially interiors. I think it is really obvious when someone is writing about something they are passionate about and enjoy. It is more enjoyable for the reader and of course the writer. It is your blog so take in whatever direction you wish :) xxx

    1. Yeah I think so too, and it's so much harder to write a post when you're not totally into it. Glad you're looking forward to it - I am too ! :) x

  4. I love lifestyle posts, I am completely in the same boat as you with my blog. In fact I've made pretty much the same aim; I just want to write about what I want to! Looking forward to your new posts :)
