Social media and how not to judge the book by its cover…

This post will be quite different to my usual routine but I feel like need to address it and get it out of my chest. Quite recently I have heard the comment about myself and my shopping habits. It was not anything nasty or unpleasant but it made me reflect and I think it is good time to share it with you !

I started my blog and social media journey in order to share and maybe inspire, never to show off. I never buy anything just to take a picture and then give it away or sell… I have been interested in fashion in particular for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, wanting or pursuing job in fashion industry would be considered risky or irresponsible to say the least. As a result, I have chosen a different career which as much as I love, it does not satisfy all my ambitions.

I do my weekly outfits post to show you guys, how I dress, what I like to wear and where I am investing in. I hope that checking my blog, Instagram account and YouTube channel will spark the joy within you, make you smile and maybe inspire to try something new or different that you have not tried before.

I like my closet big in order to allow me to shop around in my own wardrobe. I love recycling and looking after my belongings. Some items you will see over and over again here as they are true staples in my mind.

Coming out of my comfort zone is something I like to try from time to time in order to experiment and push the boundaries if that makes any sense.

So, I would love to hear from you… Do you find fashion blogs and Instagram accounts useful and enjoyable or self-centred and pushy ?

As I am trying to start a discussion, I am allowing all the comments without the need to leave your email address and all the usual details that are sometimes too time consuming to be bothered !

What do you think ?

Love,

Fifty posts… statistics and what next ?

When I wrote my first blog post, I had no idea if anyone will read it or be interested in what I want to show you. It took a few weeks but after my Bangkok post I have realised that same of my fellow bloggers are checking what I have posted !

I have mentioned before that nothing gives me as much pleasure as knowing that a new reader checked out my website especially from a new to me country or place I have never been to. No words can describe the satisfaction you get from the kindness and encouragement from your readers and followers. As a lot of my friends have been asking how is it going with the development of my blog I thought I will let you know !

  • The most surprising views for me came from South Korea, Brunei, Trinidad & Tobago, Pakistan and Argentina…

 

  • The most popular time for viewing my blog is Sunday at 7 pm (!)
  • I am normally one to two Sundays ahead with the pictures and lately I have been giving my followers a sneak preview of what is yet to come on my Instagram so if you are interested go and check it out xx

I am so surprised with myself how much I love blogging and expressing myself this way. I have all the intention to continue and deliver even more posts with better content and take more interesting pictures as the time progresses.

I want to say massive thank you to everybody who supported me so far, to all my colleagues and fellow bloggers that have been commenting and liking what I have been posting especially to Anil M. and Matt !!

I hope to see you all very soon !!

Love,

Aggie xx

Why blogging ?

When I started my blogging journey I had no idea where I am going to go with this… I sat down one Saturday afternoon and came up with this website, with no clear plan what to do next.

I did some YouTube videos before and initially my plan was to this blog in order to support my YouTube channel. The reality turned up to be very different. I soon realised that I enjoy blogging more than anything else. I am still going to try my luck with YouTube, but this blog is my main priority.

It is so good to be able to express myself on a different level. Creating outfits and taking pictures is something that gives me a lot of pleasure. During the week I have to keep my head straight and fulfil my professional duties but on the weekend I can use my creative site and experiment.

I am never been about countless amount of hauls and tons of new purchases every month. That is not what I am about. I want to show you how to buy good quality items and use them, treat them with respect and re-cycle season after season. More on that philosophy and my fashion journey available here.

I get really excited when I see that people from different countries have visited me (from Madagascar to Argentina…) and every time I had a view from a country that I have not seen before, I cannot resist to share that with my work colleagues.

Interacting with other bloggers and my readers gives me a huge pleasure and inspiration. I try to stay within topics I love and I am interested in like fashion and beauty but I will maybe introduce some health related posts like one here.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions on what would you like to read ?

I will see you tomorrow for the What I wore Sunday and I can say that the pictures we took are probably my favourites ever so stay tuned for that !

As usual love,

Aggie xx
