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
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
Can you have an addiction to the ASOS new in section? Because I think I have it. Seriously. For a month straight I was asking myself, 'I wonder if there's anything new on ASOS?', and ordering myself at least one new outfit a week, and now in hindsight it's ridiculous. I had ASOS parcels coming … Continue reading Throw away fashion & me: the story of an online shopping addiction
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
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
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.
5:15am Yes. You are reading that time right. I wake up for college at that horrible, horrible hour. I'm much better at waking up early than staying up late. Saying that though it isn't easy to get up when the rest of your family are still asleep, therefore I like to turn on as many … Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Fashion Student
