Oh fashion! Weather your into fashion or couldn't care less about the latest trends, something we can all relate to is waking up in the morning and deciding what to wear, an activity that I have grown to enjoy. Up to the age of about 15 or 16 I would let my mum dress me, purely because I had no interest in fashion and I found shopping one of the most boring things in the world, I'm sure most mothers think shopping with their daughter is a great way t spend time with them, but my idea of shopping was walking round looking for anywhere to sit down or going into one of those gadget/gift shops. However when I got to the age of 18 I actually started enjoying shopping, I found my own 'style', I started realising what I liked wearing and what colours I liked and the style of certain items, the materials I felt good in, now I happily shop with my friends which isn't so good for my bank but I'm happy that I now take pride in what I wear and I feel 100% comfortable when I step outside. BUT! between the age of 16-18 on the road to me finding my style I defiantly experimented with a few looks and styles, which were 'interesting' to say the least.
The 3 style stages I went through
Yep, those were the 3 stages I went through to get to this point now. Looking back I'm glad I weren't through those stages because it helped me realise my own style, and it helped me learn my biggest lesson about fashion; Just because a lot of people are loving a certain trend, doesn't mean you have to love it too! I would wear clothes that were trendy at the time but I actually hated them. However it's good to experiment and try new things with fashion, even through I know what I'm comfortable wearing I still try new pieces and different colours, as long as your keeping it fun, I never thought fashion and shopping could be fun but its all about how you approach it, I use to go shopping looking for items that other people would like, not what I liked, approach fashion with your own mind and with your opinion and you'll enjoy it, I promise!!
Comment down below your own stages you went through with fashion and let me know what style you have! Also if you have any ideas of what 'lifestyle' topic I should talk about then let me know, I'm always open to new ideas.
Finding your career......
Something I'am sure a lot of you reading this have struggled with, or changed your mind about, and if not then you are one of the lucky ones! From the age of 13 I thought I knew what I wanted to be, I had it all planned out, where I was going to go after school, where I wanted to work, I believed it was what I was going to do for the rest of my life. However as I've gotten older things have started to change. I have been in the same career for 4 years now, and I've started to realise that maybe I should start looking into different career paths. Don't get me wrong I love my career and I'm so happy with where its got me and what its taught me in life, but as I have changed I feel like my career needs to change with me.
No matter who you are I believe its never to late to change your career! In fact I think it can. be quite good to switch it up with jobs, I never want to 'settle' or get 'comfortable' with my career, I've always wanted something that is constantly challenging me and something that I'am passionate about.
Career's can be complicating!! It's a big decision to make in life, its something that you spend most of your time doing and something that is going to support you. So I need some help figuring out what I should do, weather I stick with my career? Or find a new one? LETS DISCUSS IT!! In the comments below I want to start a conversation about 'finding your career' weather you've been in the same career, have changed careers before, or like me your thinking of changing, I will be replying I would love to hear what you guys think about this topic.
