Ah, new year, new me and all that. Not quite, well kind of. Surely you should be trying to better yourself as a person 365 days of the year? Anyway, I’m not one to make resolutions, one because I never manage to ever keep them and two, I write them down and end up losing them anyway.

But one thing I do want to do this year though is really push myself with blogging and writing. With opening my vintage shop last year, I’ve found it so hard to find the balance between the two, and my blog to a back seat. Honestly it is so much HARD WORK to open your own shop, more than I envisioned to be honest, I knew it wouldn’t be easy but it’s been incredibly stressful and successful in equal measures. Especially when you can’t afford to employ anyone to start with and you’re working 16 days in a row, and it’s even harder when you struggle and do need someone but it’s your baby and you find it hard to let someone else take control.

 I have definitely come to realise I am not a people person(!) and it’s not as creative as I thought it would be to have a shop, I much prefer shooting and styling (and blogging) so this year I am going to take a step back from being on the shop floor and focus my energy on blogging and my vintage website instead. I want to give this blog a complete over haul, with the design and posts, and create some really great content, sometimes I really struggle with coming up for ideas for blog posts and content, so if you want to see anything on here, please let me know in the comments below!

    Really love that shirt! I totally agree with the new year new me, I've never once stuck to them! lol I love that you've now managed to open a shop, I've watched you and your business for years now and it's such an inspiration. The next time I'm in Brighton I'm deffos coming to nosey! I also look forward to see where you go with blogging this year, it's something I want to start doing again. Even though I'm pretty unknown, it makes me happy and gives me a focus in life.
