Blog As You Life It

I pretty much blog as I life it , none of this stylised pictures you see on Instagram or sprawling out like a disco dancing spider on the platforms of social media .

Neither is my home a style magazine magnet , in fact someone pointed out that when I posted a picture of a room I was tidying up ( due to new furniture) they saw my bra hanging on the radiator. Look I'm just impressed I have 2 bras ; luxury would be 3 bras corr.

If I constantly blogged every which way then I wouldn't be lifeing it , I don't survive on days I don't Instagram what I've eaten or where I've been.

I blog and live in the moment , it doesn't matter to me that my tulips are bending on their stems . It might be a little sad but I see the Tulips as ballerina that is bowing gracefully . 

I don't do selfies and my Instagram isn't full of family pictures occasionally it is . I thought the other day when we went to the museum I should get a picture of him. He wasn't keen then again that's inherited , you'll not find me looking like a duck sucking on a lemon .

I don't blog to fit in , I don't blog for the oh so glamourous press trip travel lifestyle . I got offered a press trip to South Africa once but I couldn't go as I have a job in a school . I've spent 2 years getting back to me after a hiccup in my life . I blog without regret I think now , I had difficulties nearly 2 years ago in the blogging world .

I'll not lie it tipped me over the edge the cruelty I endured mixed in with a difficult working / personal situation . It left me like a scrumpled piece of paper with creases I couldn't get out . People would side step me like a leper trying to erase me out of existence.

But I fought back and I have done as I will continue to blog as I life it . 

I don't need to be the Pied Piper Of blogging or life , I want to be the one seeing the butterfly as you or others pout to camera .


  1. I love the fact you left a bra on a radiator when taking shots of the room. That's fabulous!

  2. Another Shakespeare quote for you "This above all, to thine own self be true". It sounds like that's exactly what you are doing. And I think that's what we should all aspire to.

  3. Stay true to your journey - that's what makes us all unique!

  4. I need to read your blog more :) I love the fact your bra was in the photo. My IG is never going full of those beautiful, stylised photos either. I prefer the real ones anyway :)
