The Girl Gang.

When scrolling through my newsfeeds one morning last week a big smile spread across my face as I pressed like on a couple of tweets, commented on some posts, chatted with fellow bloggers, read a bunch of new blogs and looked at some colourful Instagram pictures. The smile grew as I picked up my coffee, took a sip and then felt compelled to write this post. This post is a pretty simple one in all honesty, as today I just wanted to say thank you. I wanted to say thank you to you! Yes, YOU!!

You see, there have been times in my life where I have had moments of doubts and insecurities, where I have felt in competition with those around me or allowed myself to compare myself with others, but on that morning, when looking at all you wonderful bloggers, creative Instagrammer's, hilarious tweeters, incredible authors, fashionista's and gym goers, I felt inspired.

Furthermore, I realized something. Often we can get caught up on the end result, become obsessed with being successful or having what other people have. While yes, it would be incredible to be a hugely popular blogger, making money primarily from your blog and getting certain opportunities that maybe some of the more well known bloggers get, I couldn't help but think that every single one of us who pour countless hours into our blogs, wake up early to post a new post, take time to comment back to people and who love connecting with others through words, videos or pictures, we are all awesome. We are!!! YOU are!!!

YOU all make me happy on a day to day basis. Whether you have one follower, fifty followers or a million followers, curling up and reading your posts after a long shift at work, joining in with Girl Gang chats when I'm in need of a laugh or confidence boost, reading comments from you that say you've enjoyed a post or a video when we've spent hours preparing it and had our fingers crossed that we would make someone smile, and commenting on your posts when you've hit the nail on the head and I just needed confirmation that I'm not the only awkward, anxious, goofy person out there, gives me such joy. And for all of those things I THANK YOU!!!



The Girl Gang truly is a place where we support each other and lift each other up. Where there is no room for competition and rather, tons of room for inspiring others to be their best selves, to progress, learn, and motivate one another. No longer do I hold onto those silly, thoughts of  'but look at her pictures, they are so much better than ours' and allow them to get me down, no. Now I take in the talent, the creativity and beauty of someone else's blog and strive to work hard and improve upon mine in a positive way. It feels incredible to have so many role models and wonderfully unique people to look up to each day. So again, all you awesome people out there, never forget your awesomeness. It doesn't matter about numbers all the time or followers, if you are living your dream each day, know that you inspire me and add an element of positivity, colour and happiness to my day and I truly appreciate it. :) 

THANK YOU GIRL GANG!!!

Love Lucy and Kelly xx

  1. This is bloody brilliant. Every word is true! I've just started out blogging and getting involved in the true potential of Twitter and all its chats and everyone is just so supportive and positive, it's really been amazing to see. On a day when I'm having a few doubtful thoughts about my potential to write, this has just given me the biggest boost. Thanks!!

  2. Aww this is so amazing! I truly love how much the Girl Gang has brought bloggers together and made a safe community for all of us. It really can be easy to get caught up in the success of others, but I'm so much happier when I just take it as inspiration to keep working hard. You girls have always picked me up when I was doubting myself and I would always do the same for you :D Great post!
