This is why I'm not a fashion blogger

Just look at me, look how hopeless I am. I feel sorry for myself now, for thinking that these jeans with those shoes look okay. I'm actually a laughing stock, and I don't care because looking at myself now I want to burst into laughter myself! Ahhh, how I'm glad I'm a lifestyle blogger, I don't think I was ever meant to go down the line of fashion that's for sure! For all I know, I could look fabulous, but in my eyes it's plain to see that I'm a little old mess who should stay in my bedroom in the comfort of my baggy Primark pyjama bottoms and dirty over sized shirts. But I tell you one thing that this has taught me, it's taught me that I'm doing the best thing that's right for me, and that I'm not trying to be something I'm not. Yes I may have tried to take a photo so I could do a cute little fashion post, but it just turns out I'm not cut out for that. My niche is lifestyle, and I cant try and force myself to be someone I'm not. If you're a blogger whose thinking of venturing out into a different niche, like fashion, lifestyle, beauty etc. I'd say go for it! But don't do something that isn't about who you are or what you enjoy. I love the beauty of makeup and how I can transform my face in different ways, but I could never be a beauty blogger because it's not something I'm absolutely passionate about. I'm following the path that leads to my happiness and so should you! I don't even know where I'm going with this anymore and I've rambled enough. Just be yourself I guess is what I'm trying to say. Any whom, I'll post the other two pictures for you to see, I mean they're not terrible, but fashion blogging is not for me (:

Thanks to my friend Sophie for taking the photos though, your photo skills are fabulous, where as I am not. You can follow Soph on Instagram here.

  8. I love this post, and you look gorgeous in the photos! I really love your outfit too. I completely agree with what you're saying though. When I first started blogging I ventured into fashion but quickly realised that it wasn't for me at all. I felt uncomfortable, inadequate and just like I wasn't good enough. I moved to solely lifestyle and it's the best decision I've ever made, I feel so much happier now with my little blog! Always go with what's right for you, even if it means sometimes going against what you thought you wanted! If you're interested I wrote a post about giving up on fashion blogging here: www.lifeinginger.com/2014/10/why-im-calling-time-on-fashion-blogging.html :)

  9. Your photos are stunning! My blog is more of a mishmash of niches. I publish my creative writing (which is probably what my main topic would be), but I also post about happiness and general lifestyle. It's whatever I want to write about really!
