Hi all! I thought I’d start my 2019 content with a bit of an update, on my content and why the things I put out into the Blogosphere will be changing this year. Firstly (and I feel this could be a whole post of its own) last year I wasn’t a fan of Instagram. What was once my favourite social media platform just turned into a place that breeded mental health issues and constant comparison. For me though it just stopped being inspiring. Instead of seeing amazing, unique content it turned into some-what of a step and repeat board. Same poses, same locations… don’t get me wong, I’m very much guilty of it. I too have stood in front of the Peggy Porschen cake shop with my hands running through my hair. I did it because for some reason I thought by not shooting at these ‘Instagrammable’ locatons it made me less of an ‘Instagrammer’ but by bowing down to the invisable influencer based pressure (that I totally created in my own head) I got bored, OH SO BORED! By the end of last year I was done, I physically couldn’t take anymore pictures of myself fake laughing in front of a flower wall. Just to point out however, I’m not against other bloggers doing this. I follow lots of amazing accounts that shoot at all the bright/flowery/pink places in London and I love it. It just isn’t me and I want my content to reflect the real me. So as Christmas, my birthday and New Years Eve all came to a close, I took the first week of January to sit down and really think about how I wanted to move forward. I knew that I missed being creative, creating concepts and putting research into styling and locations etc. I decided I wanted to go a bit more editorial and use my background in acting to portray differnt characters.

I’ve started a new mini series called ‘Decades’ on my Instagram (it will be coming in full blog form soon) where I interpret the stylings of some of my favourite past era’s. I also intend to continue with my ‘Once Upon A Time‘ series this year too, both being part of my #KateRecreates portfolio. I’ve also decided to delve into the world of short videos, something I’m still very new at and that’s still very much a working progress. However looking at my recent posts on Instagram I’m so proud and I’m really excited. I’ve started to get that buzzy feeling when thinking of ideas again, it’s back! Being totally transparent, I need the same to happen to the blog side of things, I’m not 100% happy with how the website looks and that is definitely something I’m going to tackle this year but it’s a long and very expensive process so bare with me. In the mean time though I plan on getting back to weekly posts and keeping you much more in the loop with my going’s on.
2019 is going to be a great year, Watch this space!
