I feel very conflicted about writing this post, so bare with me gals. On one hand I want to rave on about how spectacular the weather has been and how I’m loving this Zara dress, but in reality I’m not. I shared one of these photographs on Instagram a couple of days ago, then realised I was totally unhappy with the way I looked. Finding self confidence is bloody hard and something I rarely think about lately, but when summer comes around and you have to start getting bits out that you’d usually hide away – it’s quite daunting.
This battle with confidence has left me feeling pretty pants and unmotivated in the blogging world. After finishing university I finally have some spare time to concentrate on the blog, but I just haven’t been able to do so. I think, if I didn’t mention how I’d been feeling lately in this post, I would definitely not be able to move on from this – I’d just sit here thinking about how much of a bloody fraud I am and be all sulky and probably keep thinking about posting.
The truth is, we’re all guilty of a little self doubt from time to time. But I think it’s what you do with that initial doubt that helps you get over it. Which is why I’m still posting these photos as a way of saying ‘stop being so bloody stupid’ to myself. That, and Nathan managed to actually take some half decent photographs of my outfit which is an accomplishment so I didn’t want to see them go to waste. Can we also just talk about the dress for a moment? Zara always pull it out of the bag with cute affordable summer dresses.
On a lighter note, I’m yet to share my red hair with you all so here it is, ta-da! Although it’s fading really quickly (It’s semi-permanent dye), I’m going to re-do it in a couple of weeks and show you all how I managed to get that colour. Though, I hold no promises because at the moment it’s fading into a rose-gold colour and I bloody love it! So we’ll see – bare with!
Thanks for listening to me rant! J X
