Let me set the scene: I'd just posted a photo to my Instagram, I'd edited it on 3 different apps, came up with a pretty average caption with an emoji or two thrown in, posted and then sat watching my Instagram 'likes' appear on my notifications every 5 minutes until I went to bed. Then … Continue reading Learning to not give a sh*t about Instagram
Just before Christmas I made the decision to leave my job in the city and my daily commute in favour of a slower pace of life back in my sleepy home town in the country side. (Oh’ and to also save a LOT of money!) After a year and a half of commuting and trying … Continue reading Taking a city detox
Whether you decided to not go to university (like me) or you have a degree, the reality in most industries, especially fashion, is that you are going to start your career as an intern. Before I became an intern, that word filled me with dread because in the last few years internships have rightly been … Continue reading Interning: how to get more out of it than just making tea or photocopying
On the 28th of December 2017 I said goodbye to my teens and hello to my twenties, and if I’m honest, I’ve felt very mixed feelings about it. Although I’m more than happy to see the back of some of the hardest years, the next 10 years are the big unknown, the only part of … Continue reading Reflecting on my teens
With my blogging hiatus came the lose of blog post inspiration and, as much as there is nothing wrong with hauls and posts that are made up of outfit photos, I love to write and for me there’s just no substance in that. So, a few weeks of thought and a purchase of a feminism … Continue reading Should feminism have ever become a ‘trend’?
July and the start of August was very much a month of change for me- I went from being a student to working full time for the first time in my life, I went from commuting into the big city part time to five days a week, oh’ and I got glasses! All this change … Continue reading August Goals.
Although, it's been about a year since I first opened She Wear Stripes and published my first post, but I can't claim that I've actually been blogging for a year due to my recent step away from blogging. One reason for my disappearance from blogging was the fact that I was finishing my course and … Continue reading 1 Year of She Wears Stripes- Starting Again (Again)
See you later education, and as much as I wish I could say it's been a blast, I would be lying because I've never been so happy to see the back of you. Once again, I'm maybe slightly over dramatising the situation, because education has made up the majority of my life, I don't remember … Continue reading See You Later Education
Like everyone else, my initial thoughts on 2016 were that it was shit for the world and also personally too. But I mean, behind all that shit, amazing things have happened to me. Although we are now very much into 2017, I still wanted to put this post up to look back on in the future … Continue reading Dreams & Ambitions for 2017
Before I start, this post will have probably been sat unpublished for a while. I have a fear of admitting or talking about myself and what I'm about to publish, because although for years I've shared myself online, I'm a very private person. I'm cripplingly embarrassed (if that's even a thing) of the 'real' me. I … Continue reading Why I’m no longer scared to admit I am a Catfish.
