My first 'selfie-shoot'

You know what I'm sick of? Not having a damn boyfriend, pal or even family member who knows how to operate a camera. Seriously - my life would be so much easier with easy access to a trusty amateur photographer that I could just pay with hugs and hot chocolate. Wouldn't that be the dream?

I've been going at the is for over seven years, and in that time, I've achieved relatively little compared to others who have been blogging for a similar length of time. The thing is, I hate failure - I will do everything I can to avoid it, even if that means giving up.

Seven years of Isobel Rose

I know, I know, it's been awfully quiet around here recently. All I can say is that I'm trying to work a few things out at the moment but I'm on my way back to blogging, I'm just juggling a lot at the moment.

Enough of the excuses. Let's get down to the reason for this post's existence. Seven long years ago to this date, I decided to sit down and create a simple little Blogger site to document not only my love for beauty but also to accompany me on a huge journey I was about to embark on; moving to the UK and starting my first year at university.

The ebb and flow of blogging.

So here I sit, cider in hand, a sick puppy peeping at me from her bed in front of the TV and me with my beloved laptop, finally getting around to writing something on my neglected blog. The same old thing keeps coming back to me  - 'What if no one wants to read what I have to say? What if it's not compelling enough? What if, after 6 long years tapping away on my keyboard, it's finally time for my curtain call?

What's in my 'blogging box'?

Creating the perfect photo is an art in itself, before you even pick up the camera or launch photoshop. Amongst the other hundreds of roles that a blogger takes on when creating their personal brand, art direction is a skill that develops over time through experimentation and constant pushing of your limits to see just how far you can take certain concepts.

On being an introverted blogger

Blogging was initially thought to be the ultimate introverted activity; a virtual diary in which to share personal thoughts on a plethora of topics - whatever tickled your fancy really. It was this way for a fair amount of time, long before the takeover of the beauty blogger, but soon enough social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram started to take off and what was once an introvert’s hobby soon transformed into an industry that very heavily depends on being loud and proud, for lack of a better phrase.

Time to start again

A few weeks ago I turned 24. My sister suggested that I start working towards a goal, which resulted in my sisters, my mum and I signing up for a 5K race for life event on my birthday in Regents Park. “What a nice way to start a new year,” I thought to myself, and that sparked an idea. I’ve been hoarding posts for a while now with no definite date to release any so I decided to finally give myself a date, and that date is today.

I'm sick of social media and how it's f***ing up my blog.

Yep, you read that right: I'm sick of social media and how it's f***ing up my blog. For as long as I can remember, interaction has been perhaps the biggest reason for my blog's existence. Yes, I do love messing around with my camera and the thrill of writing up a cracking post, but the response and interaction that I get from readers and friends alike have always been my biggest motivation.
