It was waaaay overdue this Instagram round up and blog post! It’s been nearly a month since I wrote my last blog post! Honestly, the reason I haven’t been blogging is a lack of motivation. I think a lot of new bloggers go through a slump and have a hard time finding their rhythm in the blogging world. It can definitely be hard to find your niche and a unique voice in this industry. I know many of you reading this can definitely relate with the pressure’s of having a gorgeous shot and a Insta worthy outfit. And comparing yourself with other bloggers who have “made it” or have an amazing feed can do more damage then good. It can be SO hard to really push yourself and keep going!

BUT, with all that being said, being able to blog is a blessing. It requires a lot of hard work, motivation and a lot of working late nights to really keep it going. I just want to be able to encourage all you ladies that have your own blog to keep going and doing your thing. Don’t compare yourself to others, and prioritize your passion of blogging over how many followers and likes you get! I truly believe hard work and dedication are really what makes a blog and a business successful. I always have to re-focus myself and remind myself that I am blogging because I truly love fashion and the fashion world. That I am good enough as I am and don’t need to compare myself to others for validation.

I also wanted to remind you blogger babes to continue to follow your dreams. Keep your up your #ootd shots and creating blog posts. Keep pushing yourself and don’t get caught in the dreaded “I’m not good enough to do this”. Dreams come true with A LOT of hard work and passion!

I don’t usually do personal posts. But, I do believe that every new blogger hit’s this road bump and it helps to hear some encouragement.

As for me, I’ll be back blogging and updating my Instagram on the daily! I hope you’ll continue to follow along!!
