Skinny Jeans & Wedges

Outfit deets:
* Dynamite jacket which you've seen with a sweater dress & booties, with waxed denim (an older favourite outfit post), and with leggings and a tight top years ago.
* American Eagle top (remember this in my, 'What to Wear on a Date' post?) with Urban Planet cami underneath which I wore on my birthday (here in black).
* Parasuco denim which you've seen with a purple flawy top.
* Accessories: Swarovski & Old Navy bangles, H&M rings with gifted chain bracelet.

I'm not sure what has been going on with me lately, but I have been facing a serious creative block.  I've been unmotivated to blog, film or edit videos and just be in this space.  This is something I genuinely enjoy--if I didn't, why bother continuing--but lately I feel so... blah.

A fellow creative-type friend and I were chatting about the slump and offered some wise words:

"You will find slumps in creativity extremely dreadful.  You want to create and when you don't, it makes you feel terrible.  It's a cycle, but the slump will pass.  In the meantime, do what you are currently doing and that is to push through.  It sucks for now, and you might feel antsy, but then all of a sudden, BOOM!  The damn breaks and your back in the swing of things."

Here's hoping my upcoming vacation is just what I need to break the damn, so to speak.  Happy Thursday.

It's sad to see all this hate on Amanda's blog. @Ashley & @jessica I'm not sure what negativity or what game anon is "playing" it's pathetic to cyber bully.

Amanda keep doing what your doing, love your blog! :-)

Ashley Lawrie said...

I would never cyber bully. You're very mistaken. I'm kindly asking her to stop commenting - anon. Thanks.

Why have a blog if you don't want people to comment? Delete comments you don't like and move on. I find it rude you asking her not to comment on your blog. I'll take back the cyber bullying comment towards you.

You're like dealing with a toddler. You can contact me directly should you need to discuss a situation you clearly know nothing about - Ashley.lawrie@gmail.com.

Ashley Lawrie said...

This had nothing to do with Amanda's blog. She gets so much hate that it's normal for people to assume this has to do with hate. I'm asking her to leave mine alone - that's it. How is that being a cyber bully?

I'm in no way a toddler, I was one of your readers & now I'm not. I don't need to contact you, get over yourself & grow up.

@Anon 1: Thank you!

@Anon 2: Great suggestion, I'll film that video--thank you!

@Anon: thanks for your kind words and defending notes, I have emailed Ashley directly. I wasn't aware she had a blog so it was a simple mistake, let's everyone enjoy the rest of our weekends (including Ashley & Jessica). Cheers all.
