After almost two years of blogging now and what an interesting two years it’s been. If I’m really honest, blogging hasn’t been easy or entirely what I expected, there are some things I just really hate and of course I’m going to share with you today.

1. Time Consuming.
Now, this is something that everyone underestimates and will underestimate about blogging. There’s actually so much time involved when it comes to blogging and this is the case whether you’re a fashion, lifestyle, travel or beauty blogger. There is so much time and effort spent behind the scenes for every post. From the very beginning when you get an idea to the whole process of bringing that vision to life, (planning, shooting, editing, posting, and sharing). It can all get so long and time-consuming at times, especially if blogging isn’t your only job trying to balance it along with your other daily commitments such as work, uni, and social life gets difficult.

2. Numbers
I hate to say it, but blogging has definitely become a numbers game. How much traffic your blog is getting, how many followers you have on Instagram, how many likes you got on a post, it gets to the point where as soon as you publish anything online all you look at is the numbers and sometimes you get so consumed by it that you let it define you and your work.

3. Expensive
Blogging is not cheap, naah let me rephrase that, fashion blogging is expensive. Sometimes, I could almost cry when I think about how much I’ve spent. But it’s like any other business, you have to invest in it financially, so that means getting the necessary equipment such as a DSLR camera and lens, paying for a domain name, and to host your website and since I’m a fashion blogger, the most expensive part is buying endless clothing to create trendy new looks. It’s all one big expensive game.

4. Technology
Now I’ll be honest and admit I’m not a tech savvy and I’m not saying you have to be one, to be a blogger. But sometimes things do go beyond the basic and it can really become one big headache, especially if really want to make sure your website is professional and effective.

5. Comparison
Comparison is the thief of all joy and when it comes to blogging sometimes, you canโ€™t help yourself but compare yourself to the blogger down the road, the blogger whoโ€™s getting more recognition than you or mainstream bloggers who’re producing awesome high-quality content. And as the comparison comes, you stop feeling proud of all your hard work and how far youโ€™ve come but start analysing and being hard on yourself on what youโ€™re not doing right or enough of.

As the title says this post is in collaboration with Itu from Mouldedinsideout, make sure to check out her website for part two of this post and of course her blog for travel and lifestyle posts.

Now y’all know, I really don’t hate blogging or everything about blogging. Yeah, there are some things I really don’t like and sometimes can put someone off, but with all that being said blogging isn’t all bad or negative. Besides if it was I wouldn’t still be doing it, right.
Throughout the past few months, I’ve done what I’ve said I’ll do and brought my creative vision to life. I’ve received so many opportunities just from blogging and have gotten the chance to work with some of my favourite and such amazing brands that I’d never dream of collaborating with (btw this post is also in collab with Windsor.com). I’ve got to be a model for a day and create some dope ass visuals. I’ve been featured on companies website’s homepage, feature page, Instagram, Facebook and more. I’ve gotten to meet and make friends with so many other creative people. Lastly but not least, I’ve built this bond with you guys here on my platform which is unbelievable, from getting your sweet comments, encouraging messages and most of all meeting you in person.

Hey guys, what’s good? Hope you’re all doing amazing, I know it’s been a while, so of course, I have to update you on what’s been going on.

First things first, I have moved again and I’m now back in England. I’m back here for my final year of uni. Just to clear things up (I know a lot of you have been confused). I study in England, I have been studying in England for the past three years (even while studying abroad) and now I’m back here for my final year, to finish off this degree (yaaaaay)๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ‰.

Life back here has been okay (not great or amazing but not awful either). Honestly, I’ve just been spending all my money on back-to-uni stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฉ, who knew house essentials could cost so much and also been trying to “settle in”. It’s weird being back here after two years. Nothings changed much but me. I’ve been stuck between feeling like an outcast but yet at home. It’s hard to explain but guess I’m figuring it out.

Final year is already stressing me out ๐Ÿ˜ซ. I just want to be done already, I know I’ll be fine and time will fly but still. Just trying to take everything day by day and keep pushing through.

On another note, what do you guys think of this new blog layout, after almost two years I decided to switch it up. Feel like it represents me more, as I’m growing, maturing and developing as a content creator but most importantly as a person.

Finally, the exciting part, as the title says, this post is also in collaboration with JORD WOOD WATCHES. They carry Luxury Wooden Watch luxury wooden watches that instantaneously completes any outfit, so you can tell the time in style. Make sure to check them out for great gifts and of course watches for yourself too, (sometimes treat yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰).

Do your squats ….. hold on, I’m just messing. I’ve been so inconsistent with the gym this summer but for some reasons, these pants are really making me look bomb. I may have worn this exact outfit out last week to a BBQ, but we’re all going to pretend that this is the first time we’re seeing this look.
On another note, can’t believe summer is almost over, where did all the time go. Honestly, I didn’t even feel like I had a summer this year still need another 2-3 months to really do the things I wanted to. I can already feel the stress of finally year creeping in. I got my first semester’s timetable the other day and that’s when it really sunk in, damn I’m going into my final year. Anyways I’m on my lunch break now, so I should probably use the time to eat and take a break.

Hey guys, happy Tuesday!

Hope you’re all doing well and having a productive week so far, I feel like my life’s been all over the place so much that I can’t even tell if I am. Been pretty occupied with work so much, while trying to do some other stuff done on the side, have a social life and of course blog too. It can get quite hectic at times. Since I was off today spent the day helping a friend to shoot some photos and of course we had to get some Nandos after.

“Done with these niggas
I don’t love these niggas
I dust off these niggas
Do it for fun.”

Weird intro but since I did title this post after one of my favourite SZA’s songs, it felt pretty appropriate. Several weeks later and I’m listening to Ctrl on repeat. Don’t know what it is but I seriously can’t get enough of the album. Sometime about it is so raw that makes it so addictive. Have you guys listened to the album if not, what are you waiting for, lemme know your favourite songs are, my all time favourite is “Garden”, I bloody love it.
