Oh mighty. Taylor Jane whose all for Beauty and a little Lifestyle wants to add a little Fashion onto her Instagram feed and blog. *If it was back in the MSN days .. LMFAO WTF U DOIN.*
When it comes to adding a little Fashion or even something that makes you feel anxious and uncomfortable can be pretty darn scary. It is for me. There’s so many things that are roaming around my mind that’s making me second think it all, but I’m just exploring and giving it a go really.
I haven’t been blogging for the past 7 years and when a camera and my partner is staring at me, I don’t just fling my hips about and do that ‘I’m laughing’ face and act like I’m having the time of my life. I don’t. I’m not experienced in the slightest.
It’s pretty fucking scary, and here’s what’s worrying me..
Not only am I going to compare myself to others, but what about people comparing me to those ‘others’. | Not going to lie, that’s what I’m most worried about from other people – because I’ve compared myself and my photos to so many others. I’ve only published one photo of myself so far and have another 4/5 to add, and I’m already comparing myself.
I mean, I haven’t got my own style. I haven’t got my own photographer. I haven’t got the best camera equipment. I haven’t got the best photo editing skills. I haven’t got the highest confidence. I haven’t got ‘it’.
What I do have is awkwardness when people look over/drive past. I do not have the best body confidence. I don’t like to look directly into the camera. I do have my partner taking photos for me when he has no scoobie of what he is doing.
Have I got the money to afford new clothes weekly to shoot? Nuuuuuuuu-uh. I love make up and I love having a social life. Buying clothes weekly is never going to be an option for me, but finding those cute, different locations will be my secret. Finding different locations will make each and every photo different from the rest. I won’t be receiving PR gifts from Miss Selfridge to show off what’s new to my Summer wardrobe, instead I’ll have my Quiz jumpsuit which I purchased for my holiday last year to show off.
I know people want to see the newest clothes in the stores. I know people want to find out where my cute slogan tee is from, but no they probably won’t have it in stock anymore because I’m not earning money like Zoella.
Am I good enough? Near to what I’ve said already. We look at each others photos/blogs and so on for inspiration that we actually find out ourselves trying to do the same but with our own twist. But let’s be honest ~ it never works out as well as that girl who has the ‘perfect’ life, hair, teeth, camera and so on.
But will I actually pull this off? I don’t know, but we always have to try things and sometimes life becomes difficult and you’ve got to step out of your comfort zone.
So here we have it.
I am Taylor Jane and I am adding a little Fashion to my social media and blog. Will you like it? I don’t know, but let’s see where we go with this. I mean this might not even happen again, but I’m going to wing it until I’m happy to quit or carry on.
Love Taylor Jane ox
