Oh hai! It’s meeeeeeeeee! I totally forgive you if you’d forgotten that I even exist… I mean, it has been almost a whole month since my last post. Sorry I’ve been a little MIA, but I’m back with some exciting (I hope!) news to share, so sit back, relax and get ready for a lil’ heart-to-heart.
As you’ll probably know, it was my one-year bloggiversary in August. My journey with blogging has been absolutely amazing; I feel like I’ve grown so much, not just creatively, but also as mentally- in the ways I approach blogging and life in general. But the thing is *takes deep breath* in the last few months, I’ve found myself getting a little bored of the blogging game. And yes- I know what you’re thinking: But you love all this! And you’re right, I do! I love fashion; I love putting looks together; I love the creativity that comes with shooting, but amidst all the fluff ‘n flowers, I found myself losing sight of what actually mattered.
Doing some soul searching brought me back to the basis of why I actually set up ‘She Walks Tall’ in the first place, and that was to help you guys; mainly those of you who are struggling to have confidence in your height (‘cause I know what that’s like), but also those of you who are struggling to have confidence in yourselves in general. The thing about people and women in particular is, we’re quick to see the beauty in others, but often fail to recognise it in ourselves. And trust me- I get it. Embarking on my self-love journey is a relatively recent thing, and I wanted to help some of you to start yours too… so I decided to make ‘SWT Cards’!
I see across so many beautiful gals when I’m out and about, and I like to make a point to let them know. And sure, I could just say “hey, sis- you’re cute!” and keep it moving, but the thing about writing stuff down is: you’re less likely to forget. You see, I want you to not only know that you’re a stunner, but I want you to remember it. All. The Damn Time. Because knowing that you’re beautiful inside and out can be the first step to knowing that you’re capable of anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to achieve, and there’s something super powerful about that.
Now, don’t get me wrong: I’m not delusional enough to think that me giving you a little piece of card is suddenly going to have you waking up feeling like Beyoncé every day, but at the very least I hope it makes you smile, even for just a split second, and I hope that a total stranger’s ability to recognise the beauty in you might just trigger the start (or continuation) of your self-love journey.
As well as carding you guys, I’ve also decided I want to go back to my ‘roots’ with my content… which means I’ll be posting more on the stuff that really matters. I want ‘She Walks Tall’ to be a space where us gals can discuss those deep, meaningful topics that we’re often scared to talk about, and I want you to know that I’m here; not only for the clothes, shoes and sparkle but also for you.
So there you are girlie- a little explanation of why I’ve been away for so long, and why you might just get a tall sister handing you a little card with a shiny rose gold pineapple on it sometime soon.
I can’t wait to start this next chapter of SWTness with you! If there are any topics you want me to cover on here (or if you just wanna say ‘hi’, DM me on Instagram or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay blessed and beautiful, and remember to Stand proud, Walk Tall (even if you’re petite!), and most of all be SW(ee)T always. 🍍
