    WELCOME TO MY WORLD

    A little glimpse into my daily life

    Time for some serious reflection

    Feel what you need to feel and then let it go. Do not let it consume you!

    My dearest followers! I hope you have been well. I have missed you more than you can imagine.. A break for me have been needed. I want to be completely honest with you and say that I have been lost – and not just a little, I have been completely lost. I have had 100 projects going on at once, and it all got a bit too much for me, and I lost my focus. I have been drained and felt uninspired and empty. I needed to regain my purpose and find my focus and direction again. I will never give you up – so even though I was away for a while, I was never gone – and now I am back stronger and more energised than ever to share everything and nothing with you angels. This is my universe to share everything I have on my mind. All things good and bad I might go though. This is a positive and open space where everyone is welcome. I won’t make space for hatred or negativity – this is a space where we girls can empower each other. I have always been 100% honest with you, and that is something I will focus on even more this year.  

    I want to write more personal posts about my thoughts and uncomfortable feelings that might be hard for me to face at times – but together we will. I am here to inspire and to share and show that life can be truly magical, but also unfair and hard work. BUT that is what makes life so magical. It can be confusing, it is hard work and at times you are allowed to get lost – as long as you find your way, and come back stronger. I feel that, that is what happened to me. I am an over thinker and when I feel like I don’t do a great enough job it tear me down inside. 

    It took me longer than expected to find myself and my direction, and I realised that a big part of me that was missing was you and the universe I have build up with you over the past 13 years. That is something I will fight for all my life!

    Our social media habits make us unhappy

    We live in a time where there is more comparison than what healthy is. A world where we barely listen to each other anymore, because our attention span have got shorter and shorter. We live in a scary social media world, where even a short 5 minutes video is too long. Everything we do has to be shared on social media – and that is what I do for a living. I am a big part of this, and it has made me think a lot of the influence I have – and that I want to use that for the better.

    I have always distanced myself a lot from social media, because it’s not a world that makes me feel good. If I am not on it to post myself, then I will not go on it at all. I try only to follow people that makes me feel good and happy about myself – but deep down it comes from a pressure we put on ourself, but also the pressure from social media. The pressure to look or do better 24 hours a day. It is exhausting! Let’s all take a deep breath and tell ourself that we are good enough.

    I want to have a healthy and realistic influence, and show that nothing is perfect. We are all imperfect, and that’s what’s so beautiful. One day I will have my own family, and I want to feel proud of the influence I have, and everything I put out there. I want to help women to feel good about themselves, and I want my blog to be a happy free space to go onto when you need a break.

    I feel like the social media pressure got to me, and I got lost. I don’t want to punish myself for it, I want to welcome myself back and say “you go girl”. I also know that I am not the only one that feels that way. And working and being in this universe every single day 24 hours a day, can be a toxic place to be – which is why I have been thinking a lot about my direction.

    Doing London Fashion Week I went to a very interesting talk with Stylist Magazine. The talk was all about social media comparison and the way it makes us feel. A very shocking number hit me, and that was that 83% of us woman between 25-40 years old feel depressed, sad and gets low self-esteem every time we open the Instagram app. 73% of the women says that social media contributes to mental health issues. 56% feel like social media makes it harder for them to feel good about themselves, and that it has a bad influence on their romantic relationship because they can’t help compare it to an unrealistic image that social media gives you on how a relationship should be. AND even though these numbers are so depressing 33% of us still follow influencers on social media even though they make us feel worse about ourselves. That shocked me down to my core, and I could easily relate. 

    I want to be a realistic and good influence, so welcome back my angels – to a non comparison universe with space for each and every single one of you <3 I can not wait to share lots of personal posts with you. 

    Lots of love your Isabella xxx

    new reader here. i don’t really follow “influencers” on social media because i’m soooo conscious about how seeing other people’s lives can make me feel about my own. i follow people i actually want to be social with, and the ones who have the time and interested to socialize back. i think that’s what makes the whole sphere feel like more of a fun chatbox rather than an art display of all these perfect lives. great post!

    Hi Isabella!

    I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years now. What drew me to your account are your beautiful photos. They are gorgeous! I also love your style and personality! You’re a beautiful person inside and out.

    It was refreshing to read this blog post and hear you talk honestly about your thoughts on social media and how you’ve been feeling lately. I was reflecting on your desire to have your blog/Instagram account be a place where imperfections and honesty are not a thing to be ashamed of, but instead celebrated for making us each unique. Have you considered posting a few where photos where things aren’t quite perfect? Messy hair day (or moment)? Makeup free?

    Sending lots of love ❤️

    Hope you’re having a great day!
