Style is something I've started to play with again although I don't keep up with the latest news in terms of fashion, personal style is an aspect that can be really important to projecting yourself. I'd define my own personal style as minimal, with simple lines and an emphasis on comfort but of late I've been trying to incorporate more elements of colour in a way that doesn't overshadow my likes. Here are some of my recent favourite outfits some for indoor activities and some for outside adventures (especially when dealing with our mercurial summer weather). What have you been wearing?
Sometimes it's good to take stock of those little things that are currently making you happy, these can alter depending on your growing interests or even the time of year but here are a few of mine. Be it purely style, beauty, lifestyle or anything in between there are always things to enjoy. What are your up to date loves?
As stated many times me and fitness will never be bosom buddies but over time I've really come to appreciate my 1 / 2 hours at the gym, it gives me breathing space mentally and over time although progress is slow there are some good changes happening physically. However it's not always the most enjoyable at the time so I thought I'd put together a tongue in cheek post about my frequent thoughts throughout a workout. Here's a look at the inner workings of my mind when working my unfit body. What is your favourite ways to exercise? What do you think during it?
It's natural to be concerned about certain elements of your life and dissecting the project, interactions and the day as a whole can influence you to make better changes if you need to. As time has gone on and as I've gotten older my worrier-tendencies have lessened but despite appearances I can still be a bit of a worry wort. Being a worrier can be a benefit but pouring over every small or big decision and the aftermath can cause a negative impact to your health. Here are some ways to combat those worrier ways, how do you get out of your own head?
Photography is a strong creative discipline for so many reasons and is a great accompaniment to blogging, it can introduce your style, welcome in a returning and new audience. For me, my love of photography will be eternal but sometimes we all need a brush up on the smaller essential details so I thought it time to put together my own alphabet on a subject I adore. Initially this was meant as one post but the there is just so much good stuff to cover it has now become 2 parts with the second coming soon. Here is what my A-Z of photography consists of, what about you?
It's probably become incredibly obvious from reading any of my past posts that I'm a massive homebody and have been since my earlier years. This permanent state of being is so strong it has now become a running joke amongst my family how fast I can jump into my pjs or comfy clothes from the moment I walk through the door after a day out. Having those few reliable activities that you associate with home can make it easier for you to relax. Here are some of my most enjoyable ways to spend my down time, what about you?
If you're a content creator of any subject then you'll know that some months you can think of all the great ideas and they can flow seamlessly but some months the pool of creativity can dry up and you're left feeling frustrated or unmotivated. Sometimes your process needs a bit of a shock to the system. Here are some ways to hopefully combat the feeling of not having any great concepts to explore in the tank and get you back in the game. How do you deal with days that don't have that spark of your talent?
Travelling through life there will be many good experiences, bad ones and those who are eager to put their oar into your business whether it's warranted or not without considering if it's the right advice for you. Be it through the internet, family, friends or random strangers there is a lot of what you should or shouldn't be doing, it can be a noisy place to be, so here are a few (sometimes difficult) concepts that I don't wholly agree with and the reasons why. What life advice do you want to listen to?
It's no secret that I love sleep. I love it so much I'm prone to taking siestas in the late afternoon almost everyday and although it's incredibly enjoyable to snuggle in bed it can be a huge contributing factor as to why your actual sleep may not be as effective as it should be. Understanding why you nap, how you can combat it and sometimes why it's a good thing can help better your bedtime. Are you a perpetual napper or can you fight off the Zzz? How do you do it?
If you've read my attempt at the 10 x 10 Challenge blog post (found here) then you'll know that I came to realise quite a few things about my style and the clothes I choose on a daily basis. I found that I rely completely on the same outfits, same items and although they are simple, comfy that follow the almost minimalist route I'm going for there's no fun so in addressing this it's time to talk about the wonderful world of pins. So in starting my pin journey and trying to introduce some of my much loved quirkiness subtly (or not) into my accessories here are some of my favourite brands and their designs. Where do you buy your pins regardless of style?
