CHECKED BLAZERS, FEELING BODY (UN)CONFIDENT & MENTAL HEALTH

Well it's been a long time since I've posted any form of outfit photo, mainly because I've been feeling uncomfortable (and just meh) about my body, and partly because I've been too skint to purchase new clothes. But I went on a jaunt to Rushden Lakes a couple of weeks ago where I went crazy and ventured out of my comfort zone with this leather A-Line skirt and checked (checkered?) blazer. Not sure if I'm feeling the outfit as a whole, maybe once I'm feeling a bit more confident I'll embrace it. For now I'll just inwardly grimmace whenever I see myself.

On a completely unrelated note and a bit more of a "lets get down and personal" one, you may have seen me tweeting incessantly, or at least a bit more often than not, about mental health recently. As someone who suffers with my own personal mental health issues, it's something I've previously shied away from talking about because I've either been so completely overwhelmed by it, or I've embraced the stigma and became sort of embarrassed. Which is ridiculous and I want that to change. Asap ideally.

So recently I've had a bit of an epiphany and wanted to open up about mental health in general, speak about my diagnosis, and reach out to others who are going through similar sort of stuff. Soooo I bit the bullet and made a mental health youtube channel and I'm thinking of maybe incorporating the subject into my blog, which would mean after eight whole years of blogging I might finally get a bit more thought provoking - who knows.

  4. If you feel comfortable doing so then you should definitely talk mental health on your blog. The more people who speak out the better!
