Random Ramble: Decisions, Decisions.

Tonight I've made a decision about the direction I want my blog to go in (pretty sure this post is a bit anti-climatic. I apologise.)

I've been uhmming and ahhing about where I want my focus to lie, be it beauty, fashion, books, lifestyle. I've decided that I'm never going to be a 'fashion blogger' as I don't have the time, nor can I really be arsed to take daily OOTD photos. Although I do want to include a few in the future. If my sister will take my photos for me (Colette, if you're reading this...)

I've decided, upon reading Blair's blog that I want to focus a lot more on literature. I'm an English student, so reading is a huge part of my life. I'm really loving reading again at the moment, so I want to include it a lot more.

Basically, my blog isn't going to have one focus, there will be bits and pieces (hopefully) of all of the above, but I definitely want to focus much more on the literature/lifestyle posts. I want to start taking more photos (currently thinking of buying a load of disposables for summer, opinions please?!) and documenting things a bit more.

Obviously, when I buy new things/find a new product I like/wear an outfit I like, I'll post about it. I'm not an OOTD girl, I hate having my photo taken, nor am I knowledgable enough about beauty to be a beauty blog.
I'm a new blogger and want to share snippets of my life with all you lovely lot who read my rambles.

What do you think? Is this mish-mash a good idea, would you want to read more of my crap? (ha!)

I guess I'll just see where this takes me :)

Thanks for reading x


  1. Firstly thank you for linking to Blair's blog, I was following it on my old account and kept meaning too look for it again and now you've made it easy!

    The literature thing sounds good, I love reading book reviews as I always find it difficult to randomly find good books and from the look of your previous posts you have similar book taste to me!

    Also disposable cameras/ film cameras in general = yes!

    1. I'm definitely going to buy a load of disposables! I love my digital camera, but there's just something about disposables. And I'm definitely going to try and do more literature posts! Got so many to read over summer, so if i stick to it it'll hopefully be good :)

  2. Your comment was so sweet, thank you!
    I love your idea of what to post on your blog, the idea of a bit of a mishmash is great because it'll never get boring :)

    1. no worries lovely :) you looked fab! and thanks for the feedback! I don't want to write stuff that people won't read, but at the same time I want to write stuff that I enjoy writing! xx

  3. I really like this post! Good on you, for deciding to just post about what interests you rather than what people consider you should. I find bloggers very judgemental a lot of the time. I much prefer to write but reading things like "I hate stock photographs, or too much text etc." really put me off and I just sort of gave up.
    And also, I do love your haircut! xxx

    1. Thank you! I know what you mean about bloggers being judgmental, I haven't come across any negativity yet, but I have read elsewhere things like that. There are a lot of blogs I enjoy reading, but their core material isnt what I want to write about, so I'm sticking to what I enjoy!
      And thank you :)
