THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME


Hi. Hello. Is anyone there? I feel like I've lost a bit of myself these past few weeks as a result of life being a crazy whirlwind. I've had my own Wicked Witch to face and am stoked to say I've managed to find my way back home.
It's crazy to think about how much this lil space on the internet can become so important in your life and for me, my blog has become my home. It's the one place where I can feel completely at home and comfortable. It's my safe place, where I can share everything that is happening. It's the one place I have where I can express myself and who I am. For me, home is definitely not a place, its a feeling and I just feel so myself and at home when I am blogging. Over the past few weeks I've had a lot going on with my own anxiety, my younger sisters diagnosis and stay in hospital and end of term stress. I didn't have the time or energy to blog. The longer I went without blogging, the more I felt distant from the whole blogging world and with that, myself. I didn't feel like myself and I definitely wasn't as happy. Blogging is when I am my happiest and to not have the time to do that made me feel so drained and just miserable! But, I am finally ready to get back into blogging and put all my energy into doing what I love most.

You're probably wondering why all the Wizard of Oz references? Well, when I was shooting these photos with my OG photographer, my mum. She made a comment that made me burst out laughing (which as you can imagine, doesn't happen often). She said that in these Docs, I looked like the goth version of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz and I just can't get that image out of my head! I mean, I do need to just take a minute to show my deepest love and appreciation for these Docs because they are honestly so precious and just the most incredible shoes I've ever owned. I was beyond excited to add these to my ever growing collection of Docs because they are just the perfect combination of everything I could want from a pair of Docs - platformed, ribbon laces and don't even get me started on the glitter! Honestly, what's not to love?! The whole connect to Wizard of Oz is just perfect for how I've been feeling about my blog recently as well and who wouldn't want to be called the goth Dorothy?!

In a way, I'm kind of glad for the unexpected break. As much as I hated not being able to blog, it did teach me quite a few lessons. The biggest one being how much blogging actually means to me and how different of a person I would be if I didn't blog or didn't have this platform to share and express my style. I'm kinda nervous to start putting out regular content again, it's weird being away from something for a little while because you start to doubt or even forget everything you've learnt! I know these photos are definitely not my best but in all honesty, it took me quite a few shots to even remember how to stand and pose in front of the camera! At the same time, it's also a chance for me to reinvent my blog, try out new ways of shooting and just have fun! I've regained a new excitement and love for creating exciting content instead of doing what I think people want to see, which is definitely what I had been doing! My stats are at an all time low and you know what, for the first time in a long time, that really doesn't matter to me! I'm just excited to do what I love, share that with others and have the best time doing it. This is my home and I'm so glad to have found my way back to it.












Aren't these boots EVERYTHING?! I honestly am so freaking in love with them and feel like this photoset couldn't be more perfect to reintroduce myself into the blogging world. I'm finally home and feeling more excited and ready to express myself than ever before! My blog is truly my one home and I'm never leaving again. 

Till next time,
