What is success? What defines it? A 'good' job, having money in the bank, being in a relationship, a big group of friends, a crazy social life, abs, a wardrobe full of designer clothes, 20,000 Instagram followers? Success and feeling inadequate has always been something that I've struggled with throughout my life, forever moving the … Continue reading Success, failure and why we all feel like we should be doing more
As you are reading this it is my 21st birthday! And I feel like of all years, this one has flown by quicker than any others because so much has happened, although it sometimes feels like I'm going nowhere. When it comes to my writing, I always tend to maybe focus on the negatives and always … Continue reading Paris with Dior, a new job & blogging doubts- My 20th year summary
So when I turned 20 last year I decided to write my 30 before 30 list, and it's taken almost a year to finish it. I think I'm happy with it, so decided to put it out into the universe. Some are very much doable and others are more arty and vague. I normally don't … Continue reading My 30 before 30 list
For a while I've been wanting to reconnect with the blogging world and find my place again. When I started blogging, back when I was a little 13 year old, I felt like I knew where I belonged because the community was so small and I was so engaged with the wonderful world that blogs … Continue reading Trying to find my place in the influencer world
It's occurred to me lately that the large majority of those who follow me on both my blog and on Instagram are no longer people who know me in real life. So with that in mind, I thought I'd put together a short little post to help you all get to know me better. I've … Continue reading Hello, I’m Maisie & I think you should get to know me better
A few months ago now, (yes, it's taken me a while to actually get round to writing this blog post), I headed off to Paris with a brand I have admired ever since I became interested in fashion. DIOR! Yes, you read that right. Little small town Maisie got whisked away to Paris with Dior, … Continue reading 48 hours in Paris with Dior
In my last goals blog post I felt I had a lot to report on from the month before but this month has honestly been pretty nothing-y. I've not been very motivated, especially with my blog, but instead of forcing myself to write I've decided to only write when I want to, because although I'm not … Continue reading May Goals.
Attention all: Maisie is bringing back the 'goals' blog post! I felt it was time for another break from my overdramatic stories/ social commentary/ rants, because it's bank holiday weekend, where you all will be making the most of your time off work by watching rom-coms on ITV 2 and stuffing your face with Easter … Continue reading April Goals.
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
