How many blog posts have I written with the same intention as the subject line? Tonnes. I'm pretty sure I've even used that title before.
I've been off blogging over the summer as I've been going through a bit of a transition period in my life.
When I first started this blog back in 2009, it was all about fashion, make up, trends and general other consumerism.
Over the past couple of months I've kinda got to a point where I'm just not as enthralled with the above subjects. Especially writing about them.
Don't get me wrong, I'll still kick back on YouTube for 3 hours and watch back to back contouring videos and I'll still browse online stores every day, buying the odd thing but I've found myself wanting to buy less, and invest in apparel and accessories that will last me longer and are less trend driven.
I buy considerably less makeup - I actually don't wear any makeup on a daily basis (apart from eyebrows and mascara) and seeing people with layers of makeup on makes me feel anxious😦
I'm moving my interest more towards skin care. My skin finally cleared up after years of teenage and adult acne - no where near as fun as it sounds. So now I'm like, if I don't have to wear makeup, I'm not gonna.
I also got into the Zero waste lifestyle for a couple of months which totally goes against any of the above, meaning I didn't have to much to buy and blog about and despite the fact that I don't live a ZW lifestyle by any means now, I made changes to my daily lifestyle to reduce the amount of waste I produced.
I think the one thing I'll definitely keep posting about are trainers. They've been something I've posted about from day one
I'm thinking that the blog will go down a different path soon, but I'll still keep the name IRONIC FASHION - it means so much to me, so maybe now I actually have something to be ironic about.
