PLANS

I'm constantly planning things, coming up with new ideas for various creative things that I'd like to do. Constantly promising you guys regular content and failing time and time again. I thought I would be able to take the week that I had off of college last week to create loads of new content, but it didn't happen.

I know where it is that my plans fall flat. They fall flat on their face as soon as I start planning. Many days and nights I sit planning the future, every single detail and it's not healthy. I build up all of these huge expectations such as suddenly being able to keep on top of my college work or posting new blogposts 5 days a week.

I've learnt that although planning is good and partly vital for any kind of success, you'll only begin to succeed when you stop planning and just start doing. Stop planning every blogpost you want to put up in the next month if it's driving you crazy, STOP. Stop and just begin, life gets in the way of plans sometimes and that's ok.

Make plans, but don't think you have to follow them exactly. Travelling down the unbeaten path can be scarier but more exciting than the clear cut path.

STOP THINKING AND PLANNING AND JUST START DOING

PRIMARK BOMBER | OOTD

Hi guys, if you weren't aware already, I headed down to Brighton on Thursday and Friday with one of my friends and I thought I'd share my two outfits with you so here's the first.

Bomber Jacket - Primark
Top - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop Black Leighs
Shoes - Converse

This gorgeous top featured in my last outfit post and I'm in love with it. It can be dressed up and dressed down and I feel like it will be a great transitional piece when Summer arrives in a few months.

The bomber jacket was a Primark find and was also in the sale for around £10. I saw it but didn't buy it and then I tried to find it in the Oxford Street Primark and was kind of heart broken (lameeee) that I couldn't find it. Thankfully my Mum found it in my local Primark and got it for me. It's my perfect jacket, a little bit boyish and easy to throw on with basically every casual outfit.


I hope you like the outfit and I'll hopefully see you every day this week because I've got a break from college for a week :) Lots of planning is happening this week so that I can post as regularly as I hope to throughout March before another two weeks off.

TRAVELLING & EXPLORING

If you saw my last post, you'll know that I popped to see my friend at University last Wednesday. 6 months ago there would have been no way that I'd have got the train on my own but now I feel really confident. I really enjoy visiting new places around the UK and I'm hoping to be able to do this more this year. I'm starting today.

I'm getting the train down to Brighton with Remy for a night. I'm so excited because I've always wanted to go to Brighton. She has a university interview in the morning so I'm going to go on a photography mission and hopefully get some good images that I can share on here soon.


A lot of the time I end up feeling ike I don't have the time to do anything other than working and college. However, I realise that this isn't the case and realistically I have the time that I allow myself. I like the saying 'If you want something enough then you will find time, not excuses' So this is the start, I'm hoping to plan a couple of adventures for the Summer such as going to Paris and I'm also going to Northern Ireland at the end of next month with my family and I'll no doubt share some photos from that trip with you in due course.


I think it's crazy how a change of scenery even just for a few hours can change your whole perspective on the world. I think that it's so important to travel and experience going to new places, unknown places. The thought of going somewhere where nobody knows you and just being able to explore excites me so much. I feel so motivated to start saving for future travels and start planning.
There'll be a couple of Brighton related posts coming your way so look out for them in the next few days. Have a lovely day :)

VISITING FRIENDS OUTFIT

Hi guys, another outfit post for you today. I popped to see my friend at uni and she kindly took some (over 300!) outfit pictures for me. Here are a few of my favourites.










Everything I'm wearing is from Topshop. The top and jeans were a recent purchase.

I hope you like this post :) I'll be back with a new post tomorrow, college has been busy recently! Bye x
