This weekend two years ago, I shared my very first post with you all and ever since then I've managed to keep it up week in week out, as well as having an absolute blast along the way. My blog is something I'm very proud of and absolutely love creating every single week. Over the past two years my blog has given me so many amazing opportunities and hopefully there's plenty more to come! This post is very significant to me not only because of my blog being two years old, but proving to me that hard work really does pay off.

I've learnt so much and been on quite a journey since my very first post back in 2017, however, there has been one constant, that's stayed the same throughout that time, something I think is key to my personality - that's my style. Over this time I like to think I've refined my look, lost the things that weren't working and made the things that did, a whole lot better. Take jewellery for instance, I've always had a strict colour scheme I've stuck to with my jewels and now only go to certain brands when buying those very special investment pieces. I've lost the tacky pieces and have curated my collection to perfection.

You'll all have seen the hair evolution too, from very long, to where it is today. When I look back now, I think to myself why on earth did I let my hair grow to such a length? Another aspect I have fixed recently, I think for the better. 

Another love, and the object everyone see's first when clicking onto my blog, is my logo. More particularly my hat. This hat has become my best friend, my signature piece. If I go out and don't get asked about my hat, the outfit in my opinion is a let down! The hat makes my look, it makes my outfits, it's the piece I'm known for and now two years down the line still does exactly that.

I've always been very creative when it comes to my blog, recently I've harnessed this energy and branched out to all aspects of my personal work which has lead me down new routes and ventures. 
As you might know I'm in the process of (still) 'it's hard right' setting up a small business with my girlfriend, which I promise will be launching soon. It feels to me like at the age of 27,  I now know for definite what I want to spend my time doing and I'm trying my best to master and make a living out of, and that is videography.

Instagram is huge business now, if you like that fact or not, it's the truth. Lots of people make a lot of cash for in my opinion some pretty shit content. That's what annoys me. Our business BoyGirl wants to change all that by giving bloggers and brands quality personalised videos and photography. Creating video's with style and substance, which pack a punch and ooze cool, photographs which tell a story and capture a moment in time. That's what I want our brand to define and that's what we will make it.

I've made a lot of really good friends through my blog and even Instagram, the people I choose to follow, inspire me every day and make me strive for even half of the success they have. Never mind all the bad press Instagram gets, at the end of the day, as a tool for inspiration and making friends, connecting people around the world, you can't beat it. Anyway, I've not told you all why I've chosen this particular outfit. This has been a look I've been wanting to sport for a while now. I wanted something fucking cool to post as my two year anniversary and think I've nailed it, even with a vest top!

A classic white vest and trousers highlight the personal style and accessories I possess. My hair, the trusty hat, the rings and my necklaces represent an evolution of my style and something that makes me, me! Being different is the best, not blending in with the crowd and doing what you want to do is something I couldn't stress enough. Here's to the the next two years!

What a journey it's been, I can't wait to see where my blog and, fingers crossed, BoyGirl takes me next. A big thanks to you all, those who are new and those who have been reading since the start, I really appreciate it, you absolute legends.
