motivated for work christmas holiday new year top tips
First things first, HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS! This is my much delayed first post of the year, whoop whoop (finally got there). I took a little break from blogging over the Christmas period and was working loads of overtime, which took over my life. Things are back to normal, well as normal as they can be. I am back at it again with the blogging, with some regularity in posting ( I am gonna try).

Do you find that after taking a break,  it's hard to get back into the groove of things? I found it really hard to just think of what I wanted to post as my first of the year. A kinda put a little pressure on myself because I wanted it to be good, like with the all the content that I try to put on here. I knew I didn't want to do a '' new year, new me'' post or ''my new year's resolutions'' post ( I bet you have read far too many of those in the last couple of days) and also you pretty much know how I feel about new year's resolution after my last post (check that out here, if you haven't).

I am so waffling, guys this is kinda hard. I find the best thing to do when you are feeling this is not to force it. Take a little step back, not too much because you don't want to distance yourself so much that you don't ever come back. Just ease yourself into it, baby steps you know. Write a list of things that help you get there, so for me, I write down a list of posts that I could do and what I thought would be useful for you. Then, started writing a little at a time, I am not a writer and I find it so hard to sit and write. I have to be ''in the mood'' to write and I am always suffering from writer's block, always!

Next, find that inspiration and motivation to create content. It's hard when everyone is doing similar things but go on Tumblr, Pinterest and read your favourite sites and blogs. Or sometimes, completely not looking blogs, and what other bloggers are doing helps me a lot. I find that I am inspired at the most random of times, in the shower or while I am brushing my teeth (this happens quite a lot). This year, I really want to focus on creating the best content ever (well to my ability, I want to be proud of everything put out there, no room mediocracy).

I have completely forgotten what I was gonna say next but I know it was something good. .........10 minutes later, I am the type of person that is in their head quite a bit. I am always over analysing and thinking and thinking and thinking. It's so exhausting and I just wish there was a stop button because I would have used it already. I think, when you are trying to be creative it doesn't help when you are trying to control and plan every aspect of the situation. Sometimes, it's nice to just go with the flow you know? Life is unexpected and things often can turn out for the better, when you just loosen that grip and go with it.

Hope you guys had an amazing holiday break and smooth transition back into work and regular life. Happy New Year,  2018 is what you make of it, so make it a good one.

time daniel wellington watch review

Only 1 days left of 2017, I repeat 1 days. I know you have all probably heard this before, how has this year gone by so fast? It's crazy, I can remember the start of the year like it were yesterday. Don't get me wrong I am really excited for 2018 and what it will bring but also I am kinda sad. I am sad in that I feel like I haven't enough time to do everything I wanted to do in life. 24 hours in a day, 365 days in a year is just not enough!

I have never been good with New Year resolutions, I don't really like making them and I don't really stick to do them. I don't like the pressure. Then the disappointment when you don't achieve them, I hate that feeling because it's all on you. I am the type of person that is very harsh on themselves,  and I don't like putting myself in situations where I feel like a failure (because if you know me, you know that I am very dramatic even about the smallest of things and just over worry). I am not saying, I don't ever set myself goals I do. Setting goals is a good thing, but goals change throughout the year and I find resolutions quite rigid. I don't think I am putting my point across clearly, but I hope you understand sort where I am coming from. I am not the hugest fan of resolutions. Also making them at the start of the year for the year,  make it seems like a huge chunk of a goal and I prefer working towards smaller goals - they are more manageable and achievable not that resolutions aren't achieved and achieved all the time by other people.

Also, I feel that I always need more time to achieve resolutions. I admire people that make resolutions and stick with them throughout the year. That takes a certain level of dedications and discipline. I have always been sort of good with my time management. I do get things done but I get so easily distracted by literally everything it's on another level. Maybe that is why I feel like I don't have grasp over time.

Everyone has the same amount of time, what sets us apart is our attitude towards time. Our attitude towards time reflects our attitude towards life. Time is a luxury, what we do with our time is what we do with our lives. In every moment of time, there is an opportunity and it's your choice to make something of it. Time is precious because it will never return.

On a brighter note, I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for reading my little blog and being so supportive of my content. I wish you all the best in the New Year, good vibes all round.

alice catherine lizzy hayfield shot from the street best uk fashion bloggers

It's hard to say the exact reason as to why I started blogging, to be honest it's a whole number of different reasons. One thing, I do know that is that I was very much inspired blogs (duh). Youtube, has definitely taken over the world but it's got nothing on blogs. I always find myself going back and back to reading blogs.

For me, my blog is somewhere I can make externalise my thoughts, creative and feelings. It helps me to make sense of my saturated mind but not only that it's my own platform. It feel refreshing to have full control, of all the aspects and how I choose to present myself on this little space. I wanted to share some of the blogs that have been fully engrossed my attention and left me wanting to up my blogging game.

Shot From the Street : Not only is Lizzy, doing her own thing and may I add very well, she makes everything look good (her sense of style I could write a whole post dedicated to her style, it's goals - and yes I have just said goals). She is creating incredible content, I love how I can just go to her blog and go through the photos and be inspired because the visuals are so good that they tell their own story. You know what, it almost feels like going through someone's personal photo album, there something magical and personal about it. I am obsessed with her aesthetic!!! It's really nice because it's so easy to fall into a trap when you're blogging to produce ''typical'' content that will get the clicks and likes and she stepping far far away from that it's a fresh breath of air.

3 blogs you have to reading

In my Sunday Best : I very recently came across Sade's blog, and boy have I been missing out on a lot. She has this way of writing that makes her content feel so important, that you just have to stop and read it. But it's delivered in lighthearted way so that it's easy to take in. I have lost many hours, catching up with all her old posts. A hidden gem. 

Alice Catherine : Another more recent discovery, is Alice Catherine. I first came across Alice on Instagram and I very quickly fell in love with her natural very real in that girl next door way. She seems so normal and relatable. I adore her blog, her writing comes across as very natural and friendly. It's almost as if I having a chat with a old friend. What I love the most about blogging is the realness and rawness - I feel like a lot blogs have become so edited and Alice is bringing a bit of that old school blogging back, and I am here for that. If you haven't checked her blog out, I recommend you don't waste anymore time. 

I have some many favourite blogs, but honestly I can't think of them at this minute. Don't you hate it  when this happens, when you can't remember the things you like, completely disappears from your mind. What is your favourite colour? Errrrrrrr Errrr...  I don't know 

Let me know what your current favourite blogs are and I will definitely giving them a visit.
