Personal Journal | Start Where You Are

by

"Start Where You Are"...what does that mean to me and what does it mean to you? This is not going to be an overly psychological, get-into-your-mind kinda post, don't fret... I had to reflect on this for a while when I was approached with this slogan tee and the message around it. "Start Where You Are" #befearless. I finally decided to accept the challenge to share a personal post around my own personal experience. I'll have a chat with you guys about my career which is one thing I've had to start over again, more than once. I feel many people struggle with this. Either with choosing one, starting one or sticking to one. I've had lots of conversations with people who feel like they are in a right rut in their jobs or wants a change or just don't know. And a lot of people ask me, how I transitioned from working ...

My London Fashion Week FOMO

by

Goodness! Another fashion season is rolling up real fast! Dear ME! What to do? London Fashion Week: my fear of missing out is going to kick in soon. For a while now, I've been dwelling on the idea of Fashion Week in other cities. NYFW isn't on the agenda just yet, maybe start closer to home, with Paris and Milan. After six seasons of London Fashion Week, I feel the need for more...more content for you lovely lot (especially those following me on social media) and JUST MORE! I received a few invitations to shows & presentations during Haute Couture Fashion Week, but I didn't have enough time to prepare - hadn't taken any time off for it. But that triggered the thought of preparing for this Fashion Season - I feel like I'm just never prepared.  On that note, I’ve currently made no plans to attend London Fashion Week this season. I may ...

How I Do It

by

Following the questions I had from my Blogging and Working Full-Time post, I've decided to share some light on How I do It. I'm not going to lie and say, it's so easy, but it's do-able - and yes, it's possible to be successful at doing both - working, studying or any other life choices combined with being a blogger. Time Management I think this is one thing everyone struggles with. Having a routine or structure works for me. In saying this, I hate anything that's too restrictive, so, I'm flexible when planning and my self-imposed restrictions feel nothing like being in a military camp. I know the things I can't accommodate or afford to do, so I've had to compromise on them. The moment more time is spent on things that are not of high importance, the less time I can spend on the important things - priorities. Prioritize For my blog to thrive, ...

Blogging And Working Full Time

by

I’ve had many people ask why I haven’t taken the leap of faith, packed up the 9 to 5 and go 24 hours on blogging. Yes, 24 hours because that’s the reality of being a full-time blogger, there aren't really any days off. Blogging full time is the ultimate goal for most bloggers nowadays, as fancy as it looks and sounds, why haven't I gone blogging full time then? Firstly, why should this be in question, since when did blogging full-time become a measure of how successful you are as a blogger/individual, why should this be every blogger's goal? Not blogging for a living doesn't make you less of a legit blogger, e.g. because you are studying part-time doesn't mean you aren't a student or better still, as hardworking as a full-time student.  I'm not a full-time blogger so I can't give tips on how to become one, but being content ...
