Fresh to Death


I try too hard and when I try too hard, I discourage myself from being myself.

Before I begin to explain as to why every post I have ever published on my blog has vanished, I would like to thank the beautiful Sam and Meg ever so sincerely for helping me ground myself in a way I don’t think I could have on my own.

I have been feeling disheartened and dispirited with my blog for some time now. I always felt I needed to please everyone but myself and through doing so, I dismissed my own feelings and thoughts entirely in terms of my blog, hence why I’ve felt the way I have. My blog didn’t portray my personality as I would have liked it to anymore, and the other day, I was really, really over feeling the way I did.

After bothering both Sam and Meg, through seeking advice, I finally came to the conclusion that I would start brand new. Fresh to death.

I don’t regret it. In fact, I feel great.

And let's admit it - I'm a perfectionist.

Lastly, I would like to thank my beautiful sister for modelling for me for the first shot! What a beauty.


  1. i think thats pretty neat! and i love the new look! =)


  2. A fresh new start with a lovely post! Have a lovely weekend Jes :)

  3. Awesome and truly inspiring. It is so easy to get sucked into what is considered the "right" way to blog and a shame when we lose ourselves over all that. I know I am guilty of it :) Thanks for sharing and good luck!

  4. Good for you Jes! I'm glad you were able to do what you felt was right for you,mand I'm excited to for you and your fresh start. :)

  5. I love all of this! I really do. Loving the new look and loving your new outlook. It's gonna be so good for you Jes

    <3 <3 <3

  6. I have felt the same way as you did for while. so I totally understand. Enjoy your new blog!

  7. Jes, can I just say I love you so dearly?
    I'm so happy you feel good about this! It's all about self expression and if you needed a fresh start then this is so right! And after all this nothing more or less than what you make it.

    The blog is looking beautiful, and I am excited to see how it goes. And although I am sure I would have loved a new name I really do love naturally jes :) xx

  8. I hardly would've differentiated you and your sister apart! You two look remarkably alike. :)
    And personally, I've felt that every post you've ever published in the past is great. It's a shame to see them gone. But since you do feel like they didn't accurately portray who you were, then I am more than happy to welcome the new change. If a blank slate is what you need, so be it. We'll all be here supporting your decisions.
    Just promise to never stop blogging! It's been wonderful having you on here, Jes. I hope the blogging dilemma gets better. :)

  9. Jes!! Your new blog looks so great. I think it is really great to start fresh sometimes :) Though I loved reading your blog before so I hope it isn't too different! xoxo

  10. I love the fresh layout of your blog :) x
