Ben and I were talking recently about life; our goals and dreams and also about this blog. We were discussing what makes it different and what I want to achieve with it.
I always found those questions to be the hardest ones to answer but I think I had a pretty good idea of where my head was and this is what I told him. I hope it can shed some light on my purpose here.
- I want to be myself and encourage others to be who they are; no matter what that may be.
- I want to portray real life. I find that a lot of the time on social media there are things portrayed a certain way that give us unrealistic interpretations of fashion, style and life. I believe this leads to depression and a skewed sense of self worth among women and girls.
- I want to encourage original and realistic expressions of style. To be what you want to be and when you want to be it. Whether it is girly one day and outdoorsy the next, do it because you want to.
- Always do what you’re going to do with love. No matter what that may be – from your thoughts to your body, to talking with your annoyingly paranoid neighbor – do it all with love.
