With what was quite an unsteady year for me, I had considered shutting down my blog. Things in my personal life were becoming too much and to be honest, I just didn’t enjoy writing any more. On a personal level anyway because my passion for my online magazine In-spirelsmagazine.co.uk was and is at a major high.
So why the sour note? You know when you look at the quality of your content and output and you compare it to other bloggers and you feel that your work just isn’t getting the recognition it deserves. Well, I started feeling like that. I guess I lost the reason as to why I started my own personal online space in the first place. It wasn’t for acknowledgement, recognition or applause; it was to have an online space where I could share my love if fashion (my personal style) to share my major passion for food and and to provide some insights in life.
Having taken a few days to evaluate my reasoning’s for creating SashaShantel.com I now feel more clear about its position in my life and why I need it. It’s a place/space where I can say what I want, how I want to when I want to and it should really become truly valuable to me before anyone else will truly see its value.
So now I feel full of adrenaline and purpose as I start planning more content. The aim is to blog a minimum of 2 days a week (MINIMUM!) add more lists, more style posts, more music posts and double the reflection posts as I feel I have a lot of topics that both men and women can relate to. Thanks to everyone who has read this blog so far, I’m definitely in it for the long haul and now I am 100% confident that I will never ever consider shutting down my site. It’s refreshing to do what I love and running In-spire and my site is my two most favourite things in the world. I also think that I might actually give YOUTUBE a solid attempt next year but firstly CONSISTENT BLOG POSTS!
Now onto the outfit……
I think that out of all the looks I shot on this day, this was my favourite one. This dress fitted my shape perfectly and I honestly loved how I looked from head to toe. This shade just does it, I absolutely love it!
I also now think I’ve found my shooting location (well until it gets a little warmer) the steps and surrounding features; really have helped to create the perfect setting.
