Coffee has been the only thing keeping me awake all day, damn deadlines.

I'm not one for new years resolutions, I think covered that in this post! But, for 2016, I did decide something that I suppose is considered a 'resolution'.

'To stop being someone for other people and just be myself'

Deep af right? Not your average 'eat more veggies' or 'cut down on the wine'. 
The last 18 months have been a whirlwind for me, a series of pretty dramatic and life-changing events happened all in a matter of months and the fall-out from that was me being on my own, learning how to live with that and discovering who I am, where I fit. I've changed and grown into someone unrecognisable to 17 year old me, which is nothing but a good thing, but there's still a feeling like, sometimes, something's just not quite right. Rather than being comfortable in myself I've been trying to hard to mould myself into what I think everyone around me wants me to be. The pressure to be 'the right fit' is difficult to over come sometimes but making a concious effort to just be myself is a start. It means getting over my little anxieties, pushing myself to do things I want to do and stopping worrying what other people, normally complete strangers, think of me. So that's my plan this year, to be more me, to become a person I'm comfortable with, and maybe even proud of. Who knows, let's not get too crazy.

A lot of that starts here, on Fashion Dew, posting for me has been pretty sporadic and honestly not that enjoyable at times, worrying so much about building an online presence rather than creating good content for you guys, it's not fulfilling. I love posting about outfits and such but I don't like all that other stuff that just feels like a 'filler', so for now I'm only going to post content I'm happy with. Starting with one outfit post a week, it's a good place for me to build from and maybe the occasional extra post, if you're lucky ;) Also, over on instagram, I'll be more of just me, no more trying to hard and just the me-ist me I can be.

Without realising I've become someone who always wears a lot of jewellery, just popping to the shop requires a choker. Actually, who am I kidding, every occasion requires a choker. A few months ago I made the decision to start rebuilding my ring collection again, time to move on and let go of those I lost on that July day. For those of you that don't know I lost every. single. one of my precious rings on holiday, it was tragic. I'll mourn for them everyday. *insert crying face emoji and sassy comment about being too over dramatic* 

Anywaaay, my collection is slowly building back up and it looks pretty damn fine, even if I do say so myself, so I decided to show off  share with you guys my fave pieces. These earrings were given to me by one of the students at the school I worked in when I was in India, they have so much meaning to me that they're pretty much always in my ears. My Pandora carries so many stories, each charm a different memory and I tried to build memories when I buy my rings too, one from Berlin another given to me by my nan, everything means something. Because of that my favourite place to find rings will always be market stalls but who can deny, Regal Rose are killing the game right now, their poison ivy collection is something dreams are made of *sigh*. So many gorgeous rings, so few fingers.
