You may have noticed a recent change in my branding, where I have redefined myself from a lifestyle blogger to an anti-lifestyle blogger. You may wonder why I made that decision, and what it means.
I decided to make this change mainly for my mental health, but also in an attempt to be more human and more relatable. For most of us, myself included, we do not eat perfect meals every day, we don’t have marble counter tops and we don’t have the budget to live a perfect life. I found it was exhausting to keep up that facade as I mentioned recently.
For me, anti-lifestyle is an attempt to allow myself to be just that – myself. To not have to arrange everything in my life perfectly for a post. Anti-lifestyle is not eating a smoothie bowl for breakfast every day, and sometimes wearing sweatpants outside the house. It is not going to the gym, sometimes watching YouTube until 2 AM and living off cold pizza and coffee some days. It’s that I’m not a perfect planner, and sometimes things don’t work out. I don’t do cool things every day, and I don’t think I’d even want to. I’m just an average girl living my best life, doing some really mundane things but finding joy in the madness.
In a nutshell, anti-lifestyle is imperfect, honest and real.
So here I am.
Your friendly neighbourhood anti-lifestyle blogger.
