Hi! I'm back. It has not been an easy few weeks over here. A lot of times the question comes up about whether or not to give up a few things in order to be able to concentrate on others. After all, I'm always somewhere, doing something, signing myself up for new experiences, perfecting my older hobbies and the excuse it always that it helps me grow as a person. While it might be true, getting three hours of sleep each night definitely isn't promoting growth in any way.
As with a lot of other things, my blog is taking a hit from my decisions too. What happened to regular posting for instance? There are only 24 hours in a day...
And so, in the process of accepting the fact that I cannot make time and cutting down on activities, I know the one thing that I will not let go of - my blog. It took me so much willpower to overcome the anxiety of creating it and I still feel uncomfortable when someone I know asks me about it. In the few moths that I've had it I've learned to own up to it and to be proud, instead of getting all shy about it and thinking the others might take me for weird. I remember I had the website set up in February already, but I only summoned all my powers to write my first post in mid April. However, when I finally did it, it felt so great. It was the feeling of accomplishment after years of only dreaming. I'm sure everyone that has dared to do something they were scared of knows the feeling I'm talking about.
Anyway, on a brighter note, here is a cool new outfit that I put together:
I've always been guilty of giving up stuff I've started for various reasons, mostly because of a lack of motivation of because I'm not seeing results fast enough. I think my motivation for this blog will never seize. I only need to remind myself of how accomplished I felt after my first post, however mediocre it was, and this is enough to keep me going!
This post is a collaboration with the fashion brand SAMMYDRESS.com. It's my first collaboration ever, so be nice!
The story of when I read the message with the offer for my very first ~professional~ fashion collab is to me just as dramatic as the one with the April post. To me, it was a not so little milestone on my blogger journey.
At Sammydress, they offer a wide range of clothes, shoes and accessories at quite low prices. I've read on other websites that their shipping is slow, but that wasn't the case for me, or at least I don't feel like one and a half weeks is particularly slow given the fact that the shop is not Europe-based.
The items that I picked out were this green parka and the Almost Famous baseball cap, both of which are probably meant for people that have a lot more swag than I do, but you know, I'm stepping out of your comfort zone I guess! The jacket was love at first sight, and in real life it feels just like I thought it would based on the picture. As for the hat, I either have a weirdly shaped skull (I always consider all the possibilities, haha) or the hat itself doesn't quite sit right. It's just one of those things you wouldn't notice until someone tells you, so I don't think I should share this next time, hmm...
And lastly, of course, how could I write this post and not mention the new shoes that I bought. I finally got my hands on a pair (or two!) of Fenty creepers, and I can honestly say that they look even better in person than on any picture. This is coming from a person that has drooled over them on the internet for about a year now. When I found out that they were going to be restocked, I knew I was not going to miss out. In the end I could not decide if I wanted the beige (oatmeal) ones or this black and white variety and now I'm a proud owner of both! Expect to see the other pair on me as well sometime soon!
I'm sorry for the moody beginning of this post, but at least now you can get to know me better as a person and not just as some blogger with amazing style haha ;)
I hope I'll see you here again soon, take care!
