20 Things I’ve Learnt Since I Started Blogging

This evening I spent some time going through old posts. I’m amazed at how my writing has evolved, and also how much more content I have in each post.

Just a few favourites: Blogs and Magazines edition.

Like every other fashion obsessed human being, I have favourite magazines and blogs that are my ‘go to’ inspiration sites.

I could list the typical ones like Pinterest (which I love), but I thought I’d share with you my ‘bibles’.

  1. Vogue – of course I’d pick Vogue, it is quite literally the biggest and most popular magazine out there. When I look at things in Vogue, my first thought is ‘love that, but too expensive’. My second thought is how can I find something similar, but at a smaller price? When I lived in the UK, I’d frequent H&M, Zaram and last but not least, Primark. In NZ I go to places like Glassons, Just Jeans and H&M (thank fuck they finally brought H&M over).
  2. Fashion Quarterly – a magazine filled with amazing fashion. I don’t really need to say much more.
  3. WeWoreWhat – This is a great blog for fashion inspiration. I was going to choose my favourite outfit post, but there are just too many to choose from.
  4. Man Repeller – If you haven’t heard of Man Repeller where have you been? Feminists, relationships, lifestyle, fashion…Man Repeller writes about a variety of subjects – it’s one of those websites I have bookmarked on every single piece of technology I own. I just visited the website and refound this article from last year: Are You Happy?
  5. Zanita – I just love this blog. No explanation needed, but I’ll give one anyway! Fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I love reading lifestyle articles too ūüôā

 

I was going to leave this at 5, but then I remembered about The Sensible Stylista.

All these blogs and mags get me so excited about fashion ūüėÄ

 

All of these blogs and magazines are ones I look at a lot for fashion, lifestyle and beauty inspiration.

I’ve been too relaxed to blog!

Once again, I apologise for the delay in my posting updates. ¬†It seems like this keeps happening…I get too busy with life to actually work on my blog and write posts.

I’ve realised that I love blogging, but I only want to post quality…rather than quantity. ¬†For a long time I was concerned about the number of likes and follows I got for each post, but I started getting bored because there is only so much I can write about fashion and travel.

Why I’ve Been Quiet On Here Recently

I always used to blog. ¬†I’d make sure I blogged twice a week. ¬†But recently I’ve been quite quiet on here. ¬†¬†Moving to London and coming back to the UK from being home for a while has made me do a lot of re-evaluating (to be honest I am always re-evaluating) about my life and where I am going career wise.

26 Years Old and a Birthday OOTD

Yesterday (Friday) was my birthday. ¬†I’m 26 years old and getting closer to 30.

I had a lovely day.  I met my brother for pie at the Federal Delicatessen in Auckland City.  It is a New York style deli.  The pie was delicious (we shared a taster plate РToffee and Banana, Cheesecake, Pumpkin and Lemon Meringue).

Sorry

Hey everyone.

I wanted to post when on holiday but unfortunately I’ve been unwell and am in hospital in the Netherlands.

I was staying with my cousin and if it weren’t for her I probably wouldn’t have gone to the hospital and I probably wouldn’t be here.

I’ll get back to writing as soon as I feel well enough.

Friday, Friday. OOTD and Dinner

Yesterday was Friday. ¬†Finally. ¬†I love the weekend. ¬†I don’t want to wish my life away by being like ‘I can’t wait for the weekend’ all the time. ¬†But Friday is by far my favourite day of the week.
