This probably hits the cliche nail right on the head but, as i've got older, time just seems to disappear and its then you start to realise just how precious it is.
If you have followed me for a while you will know me and my story. Time was something that part of my life never considered. I would waste time on people and things that were not important to me and I of course lost time with those who are. I believe everything happens for a reason though and that period of my life has grown me and made me into the person i am today.
After i completed my rehab I knew it was important to spend giving time back to something that meant so much to me and to be able to share the same feeling of a fresh start with other people who were ready to start making the journey too. I worked with the rehab centre i did treatment with for 6 years before last year I made the transition into something completely new.
The blogging and modelling have sort of come about by 'accident' for me. Although i've always enjoyed fashion and taken a keen interest in all things creatively involved with it, I never really imagined i end up where i am today getting to do what i do.
As my Instagram account grew over the last few years, so did the work that i would get from it, the friends that I would make and connections it would bring. At this point i knew it was the right time to take a new journey in life and pursue this new creative path.
Working for myself has so far been hard work but completely amazing. Loving what i do gives me the creative drive to push forward and achieve more but also having the ability to balance my work / personal life ratio makes me thankful everyday. Don't get me wrong, blogging is hard work. It's easy to view the life style as full of fun and photoshoots but of course when you blog you can end up taking your work with you most places and your work can make you go to lots of places too. This is why balance is so important to maintain so you can still create your own personal and private moments.
Time management plays a huge part in the success of balance. To me your watch should be as timeless as the extra moments you get from it and thats why i love to wear my Seiko Premier watch whatever the day.
