Stop Caring About What People Think Of You!

Easier said than done right……Who cares right?? I do.   I have big issues with this.  As someone who loves fashion, I dreamed of starting my blog for so long but how could I write a fashion blog when I couldn’t post a photo of myself.  Looking back though my personal Instagram the grid was photo’s of my dogs (naturally) my husband and places we’ve visited.  No photo’s of me. I do have a few outfit post now !!

So I threw myself completely out of my comfort zone and booked at shoot with Rachel from Rachel Ross Photography who I can’t recommend enough.  She put me at ease straight away, she was confident and new how to direct the shoot with an amateur like me. I’m usually working in the back ground if we are having shoots with TBF.  And the location – Glasgow City centre, there I was standing in the street, passers by, some giving a strange look, others a wee bit of encouragement with a friendly smile but you know what…….. after the first half hour they became invisible and the only person I saw was Rachel.


Jacket and Shirt Dorothy Perkins.  Bag Guess.  Jeans Next. Sunglasses Victoria Beckham. Boots Sosander.

My wee neighbour passed away recently in her sleep on 99th birthday, her advise for a long happy life was – give it everything,  just give it your best.  If you want it enough – you will work hard enough for it.  She used to tell me that in my visits.

I’m going to do exactly that!  You only get one shot at this………….make it a good un and don’t be put off by others.

    Nice post! Those pictures of you are stunning. As my first line in my blog post says, “Let’s stop looking out and start looking in.” Looks like you found time for YOU! 😀
