“What is your greatest strength?”
There’s a fine line between tooting my own horn and choosing my greatest strengths, but that’s the question for today so I’ll try my best. 🙂
I’d say one of the strongest parts of my personality is my ability to just ‘get stuff done’, or that’s what others have said to me anyway! Mainly in reference to waking myself up at 5:30, and the self discipline that takes. People think I’m weird, would you believe! I’m not usually one for leaving things ’til the last minute (with a few exceptions, ofc) and I think that’s a positive that I’m good at telling myself to just crack on. Means I can fit more into my day, because I’m nearly always doing something or other.
Similarly, I reckon I’m fairly good at persevering when things aren’t going brilliantly, and carrying on regardless. Picking myself up after setbacks, if you will! In several different ways really. Guess it helps to just make a habit of sticking with things really, as it doesn’t really cross my mind to give up or slow down! I’m sure many other bloggers will know what I mean in bloggy terms – when the posts you put most effort into don’t receive as much feedback as you’d maybe hoped, for example.
Another strength, I suppose, is that I think I’m pretty good at making people feel at ease to talk to! Everyone says that my mum is the absolute best at this, so I must get it from her. Knowing that you make others feel comfortable and relaxed is so nice. I really really try not to judge people, as I’ve seen time and time again that first impressions aren’t everything, and you can get along so so well with people that you have little to nothing in common with!
Outfit shots in a dance studio after finishing work this morning! Just like last time, the light in there was lovely and there’s tons of room to prance around. Evidently the poloneck obsession continues! I’ll wear something different soon enough, I promise. This bag was another birthday gift, and it seems to be one of those that goes with absolutely anything. All black everything isn’t really my style, so I had to add in a few little bits and pieces to break it up. Would’ve genuinely stressed me out to have nothing but black haha, couldn’t deal with it. I’m weird. So, purple shoes and purply-pink scarf (coincidentally purple nails too) sorted that crisis out for me! Plain black tights with a plain black dress would’ve been a bit boring too, and I preferred this subtly stripy pair. Primark are really good for their patterned tights, as well as the famously warm fleece lined ones that we can’t live without.

Flippy dress in a dance studio, what could I do but spin and twirl? Outtakes where I appear to be levitating/ seem to have only one leg shall be saved for another time.
Oh and if it looks like I had a bouncy blowdry all nicely prepared, that couldn’t be further from the truth haha. Took my hair down from a messy bun after running around with 5 year olds.
