BeYOUtiful – Week #19

Apologies for this being up late. On Saturday I had a family baptism and came back home super sick, and have been since Sunday so I took a small break to recover, but I’m okay now! So here is Week 19…


A series on self-love and positivity that will take place every Sunday. Here I will chronicle how my week went with a question asked on the journal I bought in summer 2017 from Paperchase, and a brief idea of what is planned for the upcoming month in terms of the blog, which will be added/removed when done.

Hope you enjoy this series!

Second Year of Blogging: The Brutal Truth

32267252_2067843200155185_2637130453982642176_n

This is a post on my second blogiversary. Simple? Well literally speaking yes, but the backstory is a tad bit more complex than that. But let’s not get into that just yet. Last year, I had lots of ideas round this time – my first blogiversary – and wrote two posts about the celebration: My 1st Year of Blogging in Numbers and What I’ve Learnt during my First Year of Blogging. It was, for me, all sunshine and rainbows because look for far I’d come! From very few views to hundreds of them every month!

This year round, I decided to take a slightly different route.

Why I don’t attend events… and why it’s OK

Welcome back to my blog! It has been several days since my last post, and I had some very dark days full of contemplations and thinking. As the title states, I’ll be talking to you about why you don’t – and probably won’t – see me talking about blogging events.

If you may recall I have talked about two, which you can read about here and here. Now as a blogger, one must attend events and promote both yourself and other brands. Now I’m aware I’m more of a mental health/lifestyle blogger than a fashion blogger, but I am yet to be invited to any more events.

Social anxiety

My severe social anxiety prevents me from interacting with new people, especially in public events. Seeing new faces, being around so many people… all these make me insecure, and set my heart beating faster than it should. I get sweaty, my hands super clammy and I would have to leave before anyone sees my make-up – or lack thereof – become a heck of a mess.

The first event I went to was beauty-related, and I was technically not invited to it, as even members of the public were aware of the event and could attend cost and ticket free.

The second – and latest – event I attended was the only one I was formally invited to. And I had my boyfriend to reassure me with every step I took. And it was he best night ever, because it brought women together, and also because it is one step forward for me to break the stigma surrounding mental health.

Not a fashion blogger

I can guarantee you that no matter how hard I try, I will never be one. I’ve posted one lookbook, and my fashion sense is a little whack (best described by Weezer in Beverly Hills). But you know, I try. I may fail most of the time but at least I tried. I don’t have anyone to take photos of me – my boyfriend hates it, and I honestly don’t want to force him. And besides, I dress up in the same clothes CONSTANTLY and barely evet buy new clothes unless it’s an emergency and I am lacking something.

Excluded

If you look through bloggers’ social medias, they’re constantly out and about with fellow bloggers. They hang out, collaborate and take photos of each other. Where am I in all this? scrolling through their feeds and seeing them hang out. I know several local bloggers, and they know me too. And yet, still scrolling through, wishing to be included.

What freebies…

You know how bloggers get freebies from promoting a brand/company/product? Well, I don’t! I contacted time and time again several companies I am quite passionate about and yet, nothing. How long do I have to pester them? Let me know below!

Just a mental health blogger?

No. The answer is no. I honestly have potential to delve into many blogging niches, but then again…


Do not take offence in any of this if you’re a local blogger. I am just stating my thoughts, so I will be signing off here,
