Here is the first glimpse of my trip to Ubud, Bali, last month. A short flight from Perth, Ubud is an exotic paradise that calls for feather light cottons and colourful prints. However with only 7kg hand luggage even the most experienced of packers may struggle. I like to choose items than can translate from day to night, like this denim jumpsuit from ZARA.
The easy to wear and casual nature of the denim make it an instant day time hit. Yet pair it with some colourful heels and a red lip and you are ready to go for a night on the tiles. I just love its versatility. It is so comfortable and light that it makes it perfect for those warmer temperatures too. The wide leg, culotte style trouser and circular zipper tag make for an on-trend nod to the 70’s fever we are currently experiencing in the fashion world.

Being successful is about getting it right. The right amount of effort and the right amount of passion. To be honest I was going to post this last night. I had uploaded the images and I had begun to write the post, however I stopped. I was tired and it was late. Whatever way the evening went I ended up doing a million other things. So instead of posting a half-hearted post I decided to do it today. That’s is my current thought process recently. If you’re going to do it, do it right!
I think it is important to consider that if people are going to take the time to read your post, you should make it worth reading.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I had lost interest in blogging, partly because of time constraints and partly because of lack of inspiration. Everyone has their 9-5, but I think if they really want to do something they find away. I have been very lazy. I think it happens to everyone, when life seems to just get in the way. I wasn’t feeling inspired by my surroundings. So I am trying to change that mentality and try and get out and about in my own city. I find after a couple of years of living in a place you stop exploring it. In fact sometimes I look at other people’s instagram posts and think where is that? The truth is that it is right here in my backyard!
Motivation for this weekend…discover something new in your city!

There is always time to start over…right?
In the last year I have found myself less and less motivated to write on this blog. I have an archive of photos built up of potential outfit posts, but I never know what to write. One of my favourite things used to be to write. Writing was something I considered myself to be good at. But somehow along the way you start to be influenced by what everyone else is doing. I forgot about the importance of the writing and I think I started to compare myself too much to other bloggers. I started feeling disillusioned. I was thinking “who is reading this anyways?”
I think what it really comes down to is why are you doing it? Is it to be the next big thing? Everybody wants to be a blogger. A quick road to success (which I don’t think is quick at all, I admire all those women who spend long days and nights putting their soul into their blog). Ultimately I think it comes down to not losing your individuality. How can my blog be better than hers? It’s not by copying their style or photos, I think its by offering a piece of you. An honesty that people can relate to.
I am ready for a new start in many aspects of my life. This year I will be getting married and I also have some other projects in the pipeline. I remember a time when I was excited and adventurous. I feel that along the way the world starts to wear you down and you forget why your doing what your doing. Your goals change, which is normal, but now they are weighed down by other things that you thought you wanted, but maybe it’s what you thought you should want. And your future just seems to be a little blah. You remember all the dreams you had and the person you were or wanted to be. I think I would be a bit of a let down to my 18 year old self.
So it’s time….to turn it around.
No more fear.
