"Knowing what you don't want to do is the best possible place to be if you don't know what you want to do." - Oprah.

Like most people, one of the difficult things I have had to deal with in my early twenties is figuring out what it is exactly that I want to do. It took a while for me to actually accept that I was unsure and actually say those words out loud, mainly because I was the one out of my friends that always knew what she wanted to do. I was always the one who had her life completely planned out. Well, at least that is what I thought until life slapped me across the face and I realised I was completely clueless. The things I was once passionate about were no longer appealing. They no longer moved me and this was a strange feeling for me.

Although my vision of what I wanted to do was no longer clear, who I wanted to be was never a question. I had a vision of the woman I wanted to be from a young age. 

I became a very self-conscious person, very far from the girl I knew. I started thinking about everything a hundred times, even something as simple as sending a text. I became so indecisive and constantly relying on other people to pick me up or make decisions for me.  I almost didn't recognise the person I was anymore, it was so far from the person I used to be and that's when I realised something had broke inside of me. It all happened so fast that I struggled to shrug it off. It was too deep now. 
I know I said before that I would be back to blogging regularly, but I felt that I still had a lot of "figuring things out" to do. I didn't want to keep doing something for the sake of it but instead because I really enjoyed doing it and I felt that I was serving a purpose. So instead, I kept my head down and continued working at my job until I figured it out.
I want to share a few of the difficulties I have faced, one of the biggest ones being self-doubt and losing my confidence. I've gotten to a place now where I do not care what people think again. I'm finally saying "F it" again. - I hadn't done that in nearly two years and I probably wouldn't be writing this post right now if I didn't feel that way.

If only life were as simple as black and white.

There is always that one annoying person during summer that goes on about how they rather it was Autumn so they can wear more layers etc, unfortunately that person happens to me me amongst my friends. But hey, there's no shame in my game! I have already switched all my blankets in for thicker duvets, traded in my favourite Peach Iced Tea order at Costa for hot chocolate. And after rearranging my wardrobe during the weekend, stocking away most of my summer gear, I can happily say my wardrobe and I are now welcoming Autumn with arms open wide.

The typical Wahiba outfit.

Okay maybe not "typical" as sometimes I even surprise myself with what I end up leaving my house in. But this is definitely a version of something I would wear casually on a day-to-day basis to run errands or to grab a coffee with a friend. It's easy to wear and comfortable. - You can't go wrong with a cotton shirt and jeans.

In Jumpsuits We Trust!

There are days I wake up instantly wanting to doll up, and then there are days like today where I just want to hop into one of my oversized jumpsuits and get the day over with. I like jumpsuits fitted for an evening look, but definitely a little loose and rolled up like this for a daytime look. And to avoid looking like I just got out of bed, I popped on my nude heels and Russian red lipstick by MAC.
