I've never really addressed my wish to remain anoynmous on the blog before. When I started out I was mainly posting outfit posts - meaning a whole lot of pictures of me - and I knew I'd drive myself mad criticising every shot with my face in it and thinking my grin was too goofy, my nose not straight enough or whatever - and ultimately take the fun out of the whole thing. So it just seemed easier to focus on the clothes. And while I still plan on featuring what I've worn the blog has definitely taken a more lifestyle focus so it seems like I'm omitting an important ingredient by keeping a certain distance.
So here's a quick snap of me in all my 5-month pregnant glory (hence the gaping coat) on one of my last strolls around Edinburgh in late January. There I go - already criticising the very first photo I upload of myself! I probably won't be popping up in every second picture going forward and photobombing the hell out of this blog but I do hope to be a little more present - and a little less critical.
Phew - glad we got that out of the way! After 4 years of blogging and keeping such a profile it's been kinda nerve wrecking stepping out from the shadows.
