SAYING NO TO BEAUTY STANDARDS

Or more specifically, saying no to beauty standards set by bloggers. I get it, I’m a blogger, I understand that when we get sent things in the post or when a company reaches out to us with a pitch that makes the reader feel good about themselves – by changing this and that about themselves it’s a tempting feat. Because us “setting” these standards, is somewhat accidental. I’ve written posts with the intent of making my readers feel good about themselves, by offering tips of things that they can do to change. I’m guilty as charged – but I understand how you feel reader. So, here’s to saying no. Read more

I’ve spoken earlier on this month on how Instagram affected my every day life, but I didn’t touch on how I feel about my every day life.

It’s no secret that Instagram has played a large role in trends and what bloggers, and even casual users of Instagram, choose to do in their day to day lives. Ever since I became a blogger, I started taking Instagram a little bit more seriously, and to be honest, there has definitely been times where Instagram has swayed a choice that I’ve made, whether it be a purchase or an experience I choose to have.

I AM NOT READY TO BE A MUM

I’ve opened a lot of blog posts with my age lately, but I’m twenty. The ~official~ adult age. This is also the age girls I went to school with begin their families, the age my mum had Lauren and I see babies everywhere these days anyway. But I’m not ready to be a mum myself. I’m not ready to start a family with anyone and to be honest, I think, right now, I’d be a rubbish mum. Read more
