Oh Deer – The Future Of This Blog.

So if you’ve been around for a while, you’ll know that I started blogging waaay back in 2012. I didn’t start with any goals or motives, just somewhere to spew out what was happening or what I was feeling. As with most things, that changed and I wanted to become like the blogs I was reading. The effortlessly cool fashion blogs, the beautiful beauty blogs, the perfect home blogs. Then in June last year, I changed domains and started fresh with a new vision. Best part of a later, all I have to show for it is 5 mediocre posts…

I think the problem is still in how I think of blogging. Like I have to sit at a desk and bash out 1000+ words that mean something and that doesn’t sound like fun to me. I have never been a wordsmith, words just don’t come easy to me. I remember in school being told that I try to sound smart in my essays and that I should just write as I speak but I never felt like that was officialΒ enough.

I do, however, love making imagery. The only things that I was ever any good at in school was the arty subjects, it’s all I did at A level. I’m not saying that I’m great at it, in fact in uni I got told that I can’t draw (I was doing an illustration course too, kick in the balls or what). But it’s what I like to do.

I’ve debated deleting my blog altogether and saying goodbye to that venture but honestly, I don’t wanna. In short, I’m going to stick to my guns and make this my space (not MySpace…) and treat it more like a online diary of sorts. If I take a bunch of photos that I like and have no words to go with them then that’s a-okay. If I don’t post for a week or 2, that’s also fine. I want to get more consistent tho… no more 4 month gaps.

I’m so out of the blog loop, I’m not even sure if people even really read blogs anymore… I guess I’ll soon find out!

Oh, these deer are at Whitworth Hall in Durham and you can walk around them, feed them and make some new besties. 12/10 would recommend.

    Hello!Β Remember me?.. So I started this new blog of mine full of inspiration, full of ideas and full of life… then as per usual, time just ran away with me. Here we are over two months later and the tumbleweeds may as well be rolling. I wish I could tell you that something super exciting

  • Perfectly Undone.

    There’s just something about the imperfect. It’s more interesting, there’s more character, a story behind it. I mean, I could try to convince myself that about all the diy we still have left to do in our house but that’s different haha. An unmade bed is so much more inviting, more so than a made
