comfort zone

30/05/2014



i can't actually believe it's been almost two weeks since my last outfit post, it seems like light years ago where in reality these two weeks have flown by. i'd been feeling a bit down and deflated about my blog around the time of my last outfit post, and if i'm being honest i did actually contemplate giving up blogging. it's a shame that i allowed myself to think like that; as if i reached my peak and that if this was my best i wasn't satisfied with it, because i really do love blogging and pretty much everything that comes with it. but taking a step back and allowing myself some time to look back over certain things has actually really helped me realise my blog is doing pretty darn good and i'm super proud of it. even if my photos aren't super professional who cares, i'm lucky enough to have a friend like rachael (click her name for her blog) who puts up with me enough to take photos for me and we put our heart and soul into making sure we have at least a few acceptable photos to show. even if we keep the super embarrassing and hideous ones for ourselves to laugh at. i've had some crappy things happen in my personal life recently and with that having all you lovely lot to talk to and pick me up makes me wish i could go out every second of the day just so i could thank you in tonnes of outfit posts, as i think you seem to like them. anyway i guess what i'm trying to say is that i'm going to try and not put so much pressure on myself as it really does make me feel unwell. if i can't blog on a regular basis because of work, or for whatever reasons it's okay. all that matters is when i can i make sure i'm happy with it.

p.s if you got past all the emotional soppy stuff up above, how amazing is this dress please? i know i'm partial to a good smock dress but this one's a bloomin' beaut. chicwish have some awesome bits and pieces online at the moment and i'm trying to resist buying them.

  14. This dress is perfect! I'd actually be gutted if you stop blogging Charissa, I follow 375 blogs on bloglovin (!) and yours is my favourite lol! I think everyone just goes through phases where they feel uninspired but you'll shake it off soon and be back to normal in no time :)

  16. I think lots of bloggers put too much pressure on themselves to put out posts regularly but I don't think other people notice how much you blog, it's more how good the quality of your posts are when you do blog and your are always great! I'm glad you're sticking at it, I love your style. Speaking of, this dress is gorgeous! x
