Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

The Best Thing About Being A Blogger

During the weekend I was in a reflective mood as it been a whole year now since I left my retail job. So during my rather reflective weekend, I was thinking about the best thing about being a blogger.

A whole year of having a massive weight lifted off my shoulder, no longer do I waking up feeling with an unhappy feeling. A whole year being self-employed and doing my own things and calling the shot. I cannot express fully what this mean to me so I will leave it there but I’m so much happier than before.

I love writing in this little blog so I feel I should list down everything about being a blogger:

The Freedom 

The freedom to write anything that is on your little mind, the freedom to write what ever you want. You gotta admit that an amazing feeling, and you also be aware that not a lot of writer has that freedom. This blog is a lifestyle blog but your blog can be about anything you want. Richard for example read a futuristic blog and I sometime read a spooky paranormal blog. So if you really want to write a topic about something that you are interested in then go ahead.

Meeting People

Not only do you have the freedom – you also are able to meet people. I regularly go to blogger meet-up and it brilliant to meet other bloggers, it also great to meet someone who write to your blog niche. When you go to meet-up, you can gossip about #bbloggers or anything to do with the online realm. So if you are new to the blogging world – then go to a meet up and meet other bloggers.

The Opportunity

Now I will admit I’m an opportunist, but I don’t think all blogger should be like that. Before you think I’m crazy – remember I was going crazy in my retail job where I generally thought I would never get anywhere in life. So in a sense that made me an opportunist as I wanted to get somewhere in my life and any opportunity that came my way – I took.  I’m always really grateful for anything that come my way, and I do consider myself to be very lucky. However I think all blogger shouldn’t be like that, if you in it just for the money or the freebie then you are doing it all wrong. Don’t be in the blogging-game just to get all the glory and all the reward – sure it nice and amazing to be gifted free things but it isn’t all there is when come to being a blogger.

 

Is there anything else you can add? What the best thing about being a blogger for you?

    I love this, Anna. Writing/blogging has opened the doors for me to share a little about my introverted life. I love being able to hide behind the computer and share my thoughts. Thank you for linking up with Thankful Thursdays.

    Great.

    Blogging gives energy. You just feel connected to the world outthere. And being able to contribute meaningfuly to people even those far away is just lovely.

    I agree with you completely. I love to write and I love sharing stories and ideas. I never thought I would become a “blogger” or go down this path, but so far, I am loving it.
