I had a sudden urge to post something today, I don’t really know what to write about, I’ve used some old photos from last spring because I’m currently lay like a slob on the sofa after OD’ing on fry up and cups of teas, I’m debating on going for a run or do I start again Monday? I’m putting if off as I haven’t been for about 2 weeks and I know it’s going to hurt! The past couple of months have been like this on and off, I haven’t really got anything done, I’m feeling fed up, we are slap bang in the middle of moving house and I just need some routine back. I’ve hardly created any content, especially any content I’m proud of because I’m lacking creativity, the house is in turmoil, I have a poorly dog and lets face it, the weather is wank! I feel awful making a post solely for a moan and it may sound like I’m full of excuses but if I write it down it somehow feels better and makes me feel like I’m being productive…..kind of. It’s not a post for a brand, nothing forced, just for me to splurge what’s on my mind.
On a completely different note, I’m thinking of bringing a lot more fashion content back to Kate-Louise, take it back to basics, where we started, fashion is still a huge part of my life and will forever be my biggest love. I feel like I’ve let everything else take over so if you would like to see some old school OOTD’s and outfit posts like I used to do on “thisiswhatido” please let me know. These photos were captured in the beautiful walled garden at Croome in Worcestershire, I don’t think I have featured them on the blog yet, well, not the outfit pictures anyway, I adore the colours of the leaves against the denim, sounds so silly but being inside a greenhouse is one of my favourite places to be, the smells, the warmth, the sun shining through, I just love them!
I’ve recently been looking around at what other bloggers are writing about, how they take their pictures, how they edit them, what brands they are working with, how nice their houses look and how neat their flat lays are and all of a sudden I felt myself going down a slippery slope of comparison, “I’m no good at this anymore”, “Maybe I’m too old, I’ve had my time on the internet”, “maybe I should give up” all this bollocks going through my head has been driving me mad, then today I had an epiphany and the two words “fuck it” just blocked all those other thoughts out…I’ve never followed the crowd in my life, why should I start now? I don’t want to do what everyone else is doing, I don’t want to look like everyone else, I don’t want all my pictures to look the same as everyone else’s so why the fuck am I comparing myself to everyone out there??? Hence why I want to take this blog back to how it started, I was full of confidence, full of ideas and my creativity was at it’s finest, so I hope you guys are with me on this journey, and if anyone feels the same way about blogging/content creation just remember those two words…. FUCK IT! JUST DO YOU.
