My America Uniform and Reflecting

Basically my go to outfit when I was away was this adorable skirt I got from the H&M sale and of course one of my tshirts from Pink Bones, first outfit I am wearing the Till Death Do Us Part tee (which is going to be on sale soon) and the second is my newest tshirt Sleepless Nights tee. On a day to day basis I throw on jeans and a tee but it was very hot whilst I was away especially in New York so I swapped jeans for this skirt and I genuinely love it because its so cute and goes with most things!

Just a few thoughts I had whilst on holiday, first daily blogging was harder than I thought it would be, I did a post for every day I was in New York with just a round up of what we did and it was pretty time consuming, especially since I always had to be thinking oosh I need to document this pizza or outfit haha. Overall though I am so glad I did it, I loved sharing my adventure out there and also now I have something to look back on as a nice keep sake of the trip which was a once in a lifetime for me. 

After the daily blogging bit a big thing popped into my head. I have had my blog for I think 7 years... yep you heard 7 years. I originally started it back in 2010/11 and just did it every now and then until this year when I wanted to rejoin the blogging community which has been so welcoming so far. My main concern was that I felt a lot of pressure to have perfect photos and got a bit upset and felt my content wasn't good enough compared to others. BUT that is not the attitude nor is it very fun at all. I see other bloggers and aspire to be successful like them and use their posts/content to inspire myself to work hard. But more importantly to be myself and enjoy what I am doing, I don't want to ever lose my personality or messy approach to things hah, I am very DIY and I like it. I hope I can grow and improve but never lose that. Obvs I need to get clued up on maybe composition and how to edit photos, but it will be good to look back on my photos and hopefully see I have improved!! 

So I just went completely off topic, but I had a lot of time to reflect whilst relaxing by the pool and sea in the second week and I thought it would be good to let you guys know incase anyone has had the same struggles or rut! Let me know if you have or any tips to motivate yourself or to help not compare yourself to others!
Thanks so much for reading!!
