I don’t really know what to say right now, I feel like this blog post is just going to be my thoughts farted out into a confusing stinky mess. Sorry… I’m gross.
Where have I been? Over this past TIFF season I seemed to get a lot of people asking me what’s happened to this blog, why am I not writing anymore. To be honest, I’m actually not all that sure. I mean there are some contributing factors…
- Lack of inspiration
- Bored with what I was producing
- Feel more creative on Instagram
- Making more money on Instagram
But are these valid enough for me to give up what was once salvation for me?! Heck no! The reason why I started this blog was because I was sad and lonely, and now I’ve stopped I again feel sad and lonely. Why did I stop? This summer I took the time to think, I was lost for a second, wrapped up in the whole greedy ‘all about money’ world that I forgot who I am. I had to find myself…
I am Filipa Jade Jackson, 27 year old Leeds lass, living in a small rather quirky town outside of Toronto. I am a daughter to an interracial couple, sister to 4 creative and confusing boys, wife to my high school sweetheart, mother to a fluffy son. I have always been self employed, although I once did work at Nandos for 2 hours (I wasn’t paid). I am stubborn, moody, random, weird, a little funny and have permanent resting bitch face. I’m allergic to penicillin, caffeine, and guinea pigs. I love Netflix, Starbucks, IG fashion pages, prosecco with friends, and cheese… all the cheese. I can’t stand Suits (the show), fake people, ‘industry’ and sriracha. I suffer from social anxiety which means I will always have a friend and drink in hand, I have a constant fear of being judged. I never say the right thing, and my blog posts are boring as fuck (I’m also a cusser), but this is me… I am Filipa.
I plan to continue this blog, however this time I refuse to lose who I am. I will still work with companies I love and believe in, but my posts won’t be forced and sterile. Playing with Apparel is here to stay.
