Those 70's Flares..

Excuse the absolute terrible shot; I got a little snap happy when trying these on and I just needed to show you these AMAZING trousers. Rewind a few years and I would of absolutely laughed in your face if you'd told me I'd be wearing patterned trousers.. drawing attention to my legs scares the muffins out of me! However, everything about these trousers flatters my figure.. the fit is absolutely perfect, and the little flare at the bottom makes my legs look a little thinner, yay. I couldn't even wait to feature these in an OOTD; I'm saving them for my birthday outfit and that's too long to deprive you of such loveliness. I sound borderline obsessed or in love... but they're so beautiful and a BARGAIN! You can buy them from H&M here.

I'm really digging the 70's vibe at the minute, here are some others that have caught my eye recently, just click the image to be taken to the relevant website..

When it's time to put yourself first..

You may or may not have noticed that I've been pretty inactive in the blogging community over the last several months. Whilst I feel like I need to apologise for being a shoddy blogger, I also feel like I did a good thing. 

As a few of you may know, I suffer severely with anxiety and on the point of depression.. Going back a few months, I felt like my head wasn't in the right place to continue with my blog. Whilst the majority of bloggers are absolutely lovely, this time was when there was alot of bitching going on. I can honestly say I didn't feel like I belonged in this community. I didn't have enough followers, there was so much pressure to keep those few readers I had interested and it all became a bit too much. It made me ill, I was stressing so much and it was really beginning to affect the progress I had gained with my anxiety.

See, people think the world of blogging is glamourous and all freebies, but it isn't. For those that aren't established full time bloggers, it's hard. I was beginning to constantly think about my blog, why didn't I have more followers? Why don't people comment more? Why do other bloggers ignore me? etc etc. What with moving into my own place, I was finding it increasingly difficult to be able to afford new things to blog about. Eventually, I was in this kind of negative hole and I just kept spinning around, and around. Once I fell behind with my blogging, it just made me insecure, and this only got worse. That was when I knew I needed to take a step back..

Now.. here I am. 100% feeling like I'm ready to blog again. I wish I could of found a way to continue blogging and get better, but I'm thankful I took the time to realise my mental health was WAY more important than anything else. In a weird kind of way, it's made me value my own self. Because, lets face it.. the only person being you, is you. You need to look after yourself. 
Anyway, thank you to those who have continued to follow me; I'll be making a few changes with my blog so bare with me.. you'll be seeing ALOT more of me now.
