Discuss - Is social media healthy?

So, one of my new year goals was to post regularly on this blog, ironically new years was over a week ago and I have yet to post anything… So yeah, if any of you are feeling bad about struggling with new years resolutions, just know that I’ve pretty much failed before the year has even started. Anyway, as much as I love dwelling on my failures, what I really want to discuss today is social media or, more specifically, the impacts of social media.

Madrid in photos (& Recommendations)

We all know that Winter has it's perks, but with it comes an array of downsides. It's not only the season for cute party dresses, hot chocolate and barrel loads of chocolate, but also the one for hot water bottles, copious amounts of Lemsip, and truck loads of cough medicine. So if you've been wondering where I've been for the past week, I'd have to say, buried under a pile of blankets, with the blinds closed. Yep it wasn't pretty. I'd love to say I'm one of those people who takes illness in their stride and still manages to go to the gym, do 100 different things, and still somehow look like an absolute God, but I'm really not. My reality is more, stay in bed, binge on Netflix and... well... moan a lot till it passes. So anyway, I'm sorry for the lack of posting, but I'm starting to feel a lot better and will *hopefully* be back to my regular uploading schedule from now on.

My Designs - The SC Dress

If you know me in person (which most of you probably don't) you'll know that I love the smart casual look. I'm that girl who went to school dressed in little collared shirts, blazers and black heeled boots. So when I feel like sketching, my designs usually have this as a common theme. My most recent design is in complete parallel with this idea. A simple black and white, skater style, pinafore dress. I thought it would go perfectly paired with a little white collared shirt (which ironically was in the wash when I was taking the photos) underneath, and black tights. Blending the smart, the shirt, and the casual, the skater style dress, together seamlessly.

The Liebster Award

So I'm incredibly happy to say that I recently got nominated for the Liebster award!

I'm not going to lie, until recently I had never really heard of the Liebster award. It was kind of just one of those posts that I saw going around but never really paid much attention to (oops my bad). But after actually taking the time to research it, I began to realise how great the concept is, and am very pleased and honoured to have been nominated. So if, like me, you're a total Liebster noob, I'm going to put a quick explanation of what it is before getting into it.

A lesson in fear

Fear is a funny thing. It's what stops you from making stupid decisions, like getting into a dodgy cab or jumping off moving trains. I guess in some ways it goes hand in hand with common sense, or is common sense derived from fear? I mean, if you had no fear of getting hit by a car, would common sense still make you cross at a zebra crossing? Surely common sense is built from experiences and the emotional responses they evoke. For example, some might argue that knowing not to plunge head first into boiling hot water is common sense, but is this only because of previous experience suggesting that the outcome would be getting burnt? So in this case, common sense would actually fuelled by the fear of pain (from burning). Honestly it's all a little confusing, too many questions and not enough time. All I know is that fear plays a massive role in our psyche, whether you choose to notice it or not, it is usually one of the driving forces behind your actions.
