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
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

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.
