AND OTHER STORIES

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do…

Developing my own personal style on the kind of content I share has always been a challenge. Most especially now that almost everyone shares pretty much the same thing. Same looks. Same flatlays. Same locations. My goodness even captions are similar too!

Have you heard of that blogger who literally travelled the world and copied each spot and look from another famous blogger? I mean even the position and angle. Like that is effort baby!!

I know. I know. We all want the followers. We all want the likes. And we all want to be accepted and loved for what we share. But it can burn us out if we pretend, if we put our efforts in being just like the other blogger who seems to have it all. That amazing feed. Isn’t it tiring to recreate a feed that speaks of someone else other than you?! I mean cmon, that can burn you out right?!

To me, setting yourself apart and creating content that is yours alone with your own signature and your own style, that which speaks volumes of who you are and your own vision makes more sense. This to me is key in creating the most engaging and most interesting stories to share on your feed.

It is a challenge for sure. And to be honest with you, it takes a whole lot of effort and a lot time in creating the kind of images I share just so I can be different and ensure my own vision comes out. I literally gather my outfits together every single week, scout for locations, and visualize each and every single shot, directing everything from start to finish. I guess this will always be the best thing about my blogging. Being able to challenge myself and learn something new every single time, with every single project. Plus being able to experience all the amazing things that come my way and develop some great relationships along the way with like-minded people, all of equally talented in their own right.

How about you? Are you also challenged whenever you create new content, one that can set you apart from the many thousands of other bloggers out there?!

  • Yes, I know how you feel. Staying true to yourself and developing a style that is you and also sets yourself apart but makes people excited is always a bit of a work in progress and not many people will ever get how much consideration or effort this takes. I love this look on you. You always create beautiful content, so I am always happy to come back!

    • i guess it all boils down to the fact that even if not everyone will appreciate or notice it, it matters more than we love it coz at the end of the day, even if its just one person who we inspire with our work, that one person is enough. i have always believed that blogging is about sharing ourselves and the only way we can continue the passion burning is by staying true to who we are 🙂

  • I fell in love with these photos you’ve posted on Instagram, they’re so gorgeous and exotic! I truly appreciate individuality in everything, especially when shown on social media, because we tend to see the same kind of shots and styles over and over again, so when something new pops up, I truly appreciate the effort to stay true to oneself and the work that it took to put into everything as well. Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  • I struggled when I first started my blog because I knew I was different from a lot of bloggers…I mean my most recent post is a review on chips hahaha, but it was something exciting for me, so I blogged about it! I think staying true to yourself is important and sets everyone apart when they can share who they are because nobody is the same. Love what you wrote and I love your photos!

  • Wow these photos are incredible! I don’t usually have a hard time coming up with outfits. I usually focus on one piece and work around it. Thinking about locations can be a bit tricky but practice makes perfect. If I’m wearing something trendy I try to put my own spin on it and I stay away from any trend I don’t feel is me.

    • that is definitely true…i think as we go along the way, we discover new things and become better at it 🙂

  • I love everything about this!
    Incredible shots!

    As they say imitation is the best form of flattery. But seriously speaking it is challenging trying to find something that nobody else has done before. I try my best to put my own spin and flavor into my work. I can tell by your images how much of work you put into your content and I truly admire your creativity.

  • I am with you dear, the best way to stand out is to be unique and true to yourself. I admit it’s hard to try new things because we want to get likes and the safest way is to copy somebody who’s popular already. But you are unique and I like your feeds, I guess just like you we have to be creative and plan what to post next. Thanks for the inspo, it’s really helpful!

  • A great editorial! Love the romantic vibe of this post and it is beautifully executed and shot. I hope to do that one day on my blog, at least more consistently. You are such an inspiration. I do have a great sense of what my style is, but it sometimes hard to get a photographer here in the city, where I live is so crowded,

  • That New Dress

    Your outfit is divine and photography is on point as usual!! xx

  • This is such a beautiful photostory! Your outfit is stunning and the photography is beautiful!
    Regarding the blogger who went to such lengths to copy another blogger, that is ridiculous! I think it’s sad to have to plagiarize period but to spend all that money and effort to copy another person’s outfit and poses – how can you call yourself a fashion blogger at that point?
    I think the most successful bloggers are the ones who are authentic and unafraid to be unique.

  • What a gorgeous outfit! I love your bag too. Gemma x
