More Authentically Me.

By Jadecharlotte @jadeodonnell_
Welcome to the infamous “I hate trying to be pink and girly” Instagram (and now blog) post/spark of realization. You’ve been warned...more authentically me.
Originally posted: 24th May 2019Been a bit quiet on here recently as I feel like I’ve been stuck in a rut Instagram-wise. To be completely honest with you all I’m sick to death of trying to keep up with everyone else out there, the pressure to need a ‘theme’ and everything else that usually comes with blogging. I’ve never really been big into the whole ‘pink and girly everywhere’ thing – not to say that people who are are wrong, they make it look so lovely for them. It’s just not really for me personally. Give me a band t-shirt or ratty old converse and jeans any day. I think I’m just passed trying to fit in with what (at least I believe to be) are expected criteria for most bloggers currently. I don’t think I’ll ever truly be a ‘typical’ blogger. I came into this years ago not knowing anything about beauty and skincare (two of the big things I tried to kid myself about knowing) and I still know nothing! I want to try and shift my focus back to things I do truly love. Music, TV & Netflix, books, bits and pieces that have caught my interest and updating about general life and health. I want to go back to what originally inspired me, and still does; seeing my cousin years ago working at her Uni paper and then NME & within the music industry reviewing bands and music and thinking how freaking cool that was! That that was even a career option! Of course I do love a good face mask and lipstick as much as the next person but I don’t think I can solely build a proper and worthwhile blog around just that. I still do like those things also, I just don’t want that to be my only thing. Does that make sense? I hope so. So yeah, if you’ve read this then thank you and hopefully you’ll stick around! Also finally I’m heading back to work soon as the medication I’m now on is mostly keeping things stable and I can’t wait! Shall keep you all updated as always.
