That Slogan Life

Top: Levis, Trousers: Zara, Heels: Dorothy Perkins, Jacket: H&M, Watch: Michael Kors

Anyone else ready to admit that they are a hoarder or is it just me willing to throw their arms in the air? I don't know how many times I try and have a clear out and tell myself that I will be able to part ways with certain items, but for some reason they always find their way back into my wardrobe! I just don't know how it happens but there are stories behind every item of clothing that you cannot forget. 

Luckily for us there are positives to being a hoarder, we liven world of fast fashion which isn't the best for our bank accounts but at some point every trend will return in the future and we have a wardrobe all set for it. 

Slogan tee's fit perfectly into this category! I mean talk about revolving fashion, it has only been a few years ago we were walking around with 'Geek' written on our t-shirts and jumpers. I'll just put it out there that I jumped on that bandwagon - I do feel kind of embarrassed looking back! I practically ran to Topshop to ensure that I got my hands on one of those tops as I didn't want to miss out and they were what in fashion for the whole of three months?! 

Luckily the style of slogan tee's have shifted and have a sense of sophistication and a luxe vibe, plus we cannot forget the designer ones too! 

I'm yet to get my hands on the Gucci one, I am obsessed with it, I just love the vintage vibe and how you can dress it up for nights out (not that I ever go out, but you know it is good to have the option). It inspired me to go rooting through my drawers as somewhere at the bottom was my trusty Levis top, I mean it is the same as Gucci right?!

My style was a little dull back in the day so I only used to wear this top with a pair of jeans, how else would I wear it? I've become a little more experimental with my fashion and I am getting to the point where I don't really care how mixing colours/prints/styles up, I'm discovering the fun side of style and I like it!!

Capturing that Inspiration

I am finally getting around to sitting down and writing a blog post, Little-Talks has been slightly neglected the past month or so, not intentionally I may add. It is funny because I have seen a rise in the amount of hits each page has had, I’m not sure whether it was down to the amazing opportunity I had in working with the Towel Shop or people actually think my content is interesting.... that is something to be debated!

It is so lovely to see that more people are coming across my little space on the internet, it is still a hobby of mine and one I thoroughly enjoy (even if there are many arguments during the photo sessions). It will always be a hobby, by no means is the growth anywhere near most blogs out there but it is not a competition at all and that is key thing to remember when joining the community.
However, I’ll admit that I haven’t completely disappeared, I have just got a new found love for my YouTube channel and found myself putting all my dedication into that. If you didn’t know I had one ... well you kinda do now and I would love for you to pop over and check it out, (bit of self promo, why not!)

I have really enjoyed creating content on there, which is quit new to me as I have struggled with coming up with fun and engaging videos but for some reason my min keeps going off on a tangent and I keep getting all these ideas; certainly not complaining at all. Does anyone always get their brainwaves when they have either gone to bed or are in the shower?!

By no means do I feel my videos are as high of a standard as I would like them to be, but it is still a massive learning curve for me. It doesn’t miraculously happen overnight, a nice steady growth and improvement is the key and remember it isn’t a competition. I’m still working on that lighting, not saying ‘errm’ as much and those thumbnails; how are they sooooo difficult to create?

It is a hobby and one I thoroughly enjoy but it isn’t a walk in the park especially when you are working around a 9-5 job and sometimes work six days a week. I’ll admit that there are times I just want to cave in and that pretty much stems around receiving comments from individuals that can hurt and make you feel worthless but there are so many lovely comments and supportive people out there that outweigh that.

So I guess time will tell as to how well this juggling act continues... I for one am enjoying that challenge!
