Where Have I Been?

Where Have I Been?

Fredperrysuitroyalblood3You’ll probably notice that for the past week I’ve posted very little on Instagram, only occasionally on Twitter, nowhere on our main YouTube channel and have failed at daily vlogging for nearly 2 weeks. So, where have I been? Aside from a weekend away in the Cotswolds I’ve been staring at my laptop screen attempting to find inspiration.

I need a new project. And this is something that I’ve constantly felt the need for within the last year, that’s the reason I started this blog, that’s the reason we started a new vlogging channel and that’s the reason I feel a little useless at the moment if I’m honest. But rather than staring at my laptop for another week and then punishing myself for the lack of work I’ve done, I thought I’d explain why I feel so lost and a need to start afresh.

How To Be An Adult

How To Be An Adult

If I could tell you how many people have recently said to me “Oh my god you’re so adult” i’d be pretty rich, well not that rich, i’d probably have a £20 note, but still, that’s enough to go an buy a new And Other Stories top and hopefully you get my point.

A lot of people have been telling me how ‘adult’ I am now, is it because I have a boyfriend? Is it because we live together? Is it because we bought a house together? Or is it because we have a puppy to look after? God knows.

Some Things Happen For A Reason

Some Things Happen For A Reason

I often get asked how hard my life is with only one hand, a waiter even once told me “You don’t understand how much you’re missing out on”. For some reason, the world assumes that my “disability” is something of a negative difference, it only holds me back. But I will hold up my hands (or hand) and swear on my life that I would never want two hands in my life, even if someone could magically make one appear tomorrow, it’s not something I’m interested in.

An Honest Life Update

An Honest Life Update

I have two questions for you, how is it April already and when can summer start, please?

I’m not one for New years resolutions, I understand that a new year feels like a good time to motivate you in changing something about yourself, but I personally find that fact that most only find a New Year as an excuse for motivation, ironically un-motivating. Saying that though, Amelia and I had a discussion on where we wanted to go with our content this year which you could call a kind of resolution for 2018 and I’m super happy to tell you that we are getting there!

We wanted to take our content in a new direction. I love clothing and I love Interior design, so why were we not creating content on our YouTube channel along those lines? Who on earth knows. Probably because we were stubborn, we liked being girls that were doing something more unconventional. The stereotype of girls is that they like beautify and fashion and we liked the fact that our content opposed this, but when it gets to the point where we are purposefully not creating content on those topics, topics which we enjoyed just to oppose a stereotype, it began to feel super fake and forceful. So 2018 was the year we started creating the content we enjoyed watching, and hopefully you are enjoying it too.
