Let's Be Ourselves.
Sometimes it's really hard to be 100% yourself.
Whether you're an introvert, extrovert, or somewhere in the middle, we all have days where we don't feel like we can be true to who we are.
Apart from Trump. I'm pretty sure he's true to his arsehole ways day in, day out.
I've never really been a wallflower (I'm pretty sure my mum would spit out her tea even at the suggestion) and have always felt comfortable putting myself 'out there' in real life and on the internet. In 2010, before Instagram became our online diaries, I started a fashion blog and managed to acquire a pretty good following of loyal readers who enjoyed seeing what I got up to. I posed away in front of the camera, appeared in magazines and took selfies like there was no tomorrow. It brought me new friends, a fair bit of cash and more free clothes than I knew what to do with!
And then I just lost the confidence.
Blogging back then was nowhere near as professional as it is now. Photos were always slightly grainy, with a terrible background and a whole look created from Primark or KMart was totally acceptable (can you even imagine that now?!). But then a new wave of bloggers emerged and totally upped the game. My feeble photos and non-designer styling made me feel like I was producing terrible content compared to these fashion queens, and I feared being ridiculed for even trying to compete in the same league. So I just stopped.
I stopped the thing that made me happy because I worried about what people would think.
But after a 3 year hiatus, and with the support of some pretty great people, I'm ready to jump back on the wagon and start from scratch with my own little corner of the internet.
What's the worst that could happen...
