I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE |Tea Talk #9 | Sitting In The Clouds

I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE! I’ve searched my brain for new blog post ideas. I’ve googled and googled but nothing sparks my inspiration or my passion for my blog anymore. I don’t want this to be the end but when I see a blank “write” box, I feel intimated, guilty and a little sad. I’m so proud of this little space of mine and how it has grown and I don’t want to throw it down the drained. I thought taking a break for a while would be the answer but I haven’t properly posted since April and I’m getting scared the passion and determination I once had for Sitting In The Clouds is going or maybe even gone. I don’t want this break to go on for any longer.

Here’s what’s going to happen in the last attempt to bring the joy I once had for blogging back…

One | HAVE A REVAMP – I’m a graphic designer so it can’t be that hard to redesign my blog banner, my blog post headers and the overall look and feel of my blog and turn it into something I really want to post on. However, my big computer has broken so we’ll how designing on my 13″ screen will go.
(edit: you will start to see the redesign pop up around my blog now. Let me know what you guys think of it.)

Two | PLAN IDEAS – This one is going to be a little tricker since I’ve been trying to do that for a while now. I think of ideas then don’t want to write any.  I really want to focus on my bullet journal posts, my love for Disney and reading. Concentrating more on my lifestyle aspect of my blog. I still really want to do OOTD/W posts, but I have a feeling beauty and makeup will take a heavy backseat.

Three | INTERACT AGAIN – Not only have I been off my blogging game but I haven’t read your posts or interacted with you on your blogs in so long and I’ve missed it. Interacting with other bloggers is a massive part of this community and you can’t really do one without the other. So let’s reconnect. Link me to your blog posts and social medias below and I’ll say hi!

and finally….

Four | INVOLVE YOU – I have nearly 900 of you amazing readers so I would love to know what you want to see from me. I want to involve you more in my blog decisions and make my readers the main drive of my blog. I love chatty posts, much like this one, so if you have any topics you want me to discuss let me know. I really want the comments on my blog to get more attention and allow anymore to address their opinions and know they won’t get shut down.

So in conclusion….PLEASE HELP ME!!! The next blog post CAN’T be “RIP Sitting In The Clouds”.

until next time,
xoxo, rachel 

Day Trip To Kew Gardens (+OOTD) | Tea Talk #7 | Sitting In The Clouds

It hit 23 degrees today in London…aka flipping boiling for the UK. The sunglasses came out, as well as the suncream. Ice cream vans music played and it truly felt like summer. My mum and I took advantage of this lovely weather as living in the UK you never know when the glorious weather will go into hiding and winter will be upon us once again, by visiting Kew Gardens.

For university I have to create a poster advertising Kew Gardens so the main focus of the trip was to get inspiration for my design. However, I’m also taking a photography class this semester so it was a great location to practice my photography. Even though this trip was primarily for university, it turned into a lovely mother, daughter day. We had a lovely lunch, sitting back and enjoying the sun. We of course stopped off in Starbucks and picked up some refreshing drinks to combat the heat and just had a lovely bonding session.

Please bare in mind I’m still learning the basics of photography and I have a long way to go.

Out of over 100 photos taken those are my three favourites. I just love doing depth of field photos.

While having a nice stroll and not following the map we came across this bear that had been carved out of an old tree stump and I think I’m going to be basing my poster off this as it’s so unique.

WARNING! Today wasn’t the day for skinny jeans but nevertheless I really liked the outfit I chose, it had a very summery vibe. I chose my really comfy shoes, my Ugg Treadlites as I knew today was a day of walking and of course a pair of sunglasses.

Top: Topshop
Jeans: Topshop Joni Jeans
Shoes: Uggs
Sunglasses: Primark

I did bring a leather jacket as we headed out of the house at around 9:30 in the morning but I took it off as soon as we got to the gardens and didn’t wear it once after.

Today was so much fun and the weather was just fantastic. If you enjoyed this type of blog post let me know by liking and commenting so I know whether to do similar in the future. I would also love your opinion on whether you would want me to include more of my graphic design and photography projects on my blog? Let’s chat in the comments.

If you are based in the UK, I hope you had a lovely weekend enjoying the sunshine and making the most of it.

until next time,

xoxo, rachel
