Ch ch ch changes

Don’t worry about being worried. You’re heading out on an adventure and you can always change your mind along the way and try something else. -Tracy Kidder

Change can be scary and sometimes you don't have the option of choosing when this will happen. But hopefully when it does, it only leads to bigger and greater things.
Well at least I'm hoping that's the case!

With the start of this week came my birthday, filled with some much love and happiness (plus some beautiful treasures from Jordan Askill and my very own kitty-ear ring). Yesterday, a massive spanner was thrown into the works, which has (luckily) given me a big kick up the butt towards a path of fulfilment. Plus I got to spend the last 2 days at the beach!

Pre birthday birthday

So it's my birthday tomorrow, the beginning of my 28th year in this world, and this year I plan to grab hold of life and all the opportunities available and really make a go of it!

But before I get all boring and serious (as if!), here's a couple of snaps from my weekend birthday events, involving salmon for breakfast, mini golf and the wonderful delights of Yo-Chi.
Oh and some fabulous spoils from my fam and man, courtesy of Madewell, Hello Parry and ManiaMania (though I am still hoping for a pug or a kitty tomorrow...)

This year has already started off on a good note!

Inspiration desperation

I've taken myself on a blogging sabbatical of recent times, in order to reassess what I really want out of a blog.

While it started out as a travel diary, I have seen it slowly evolve into a mesh of lifestyle, fashion and food. And there is nothing wrong with that.

I've been doing a lot of blog reading lately, trying to pinpoint what exactly attracts me to certain blogs over others. And i think it's obviously an affinity with that person's taste and style, but also blend of original content and commentary of others' images. And an original voice is key.

My current faves are:
Capture the Castle
Sincerely Jules
The Londoner (Rosie seriously has the BEST life)
Oracle Fox

These are the blogs that I know off by heart, that I turn to each day hoping they've made a new post over night, and which I hope to emulate in some form.

So here's to a new lease on blogging, the struggling creatives ultimate outlet!
