It's a new dawn, it's a new day;

Wishful Wanderings;
I've been thinking quite a lot lately about how I view the content of my blog, and how I want my blog to actually be. I've also noticed how i've been feeling more and more fed up with my blog, and it's always usually over the same thing; content. Sometimes I feel that there is nothing about my blog that is particularly different, or makes it stand out, especially as blogging is now such a massive phenomena. I do love outfit posts, they're really fun to do, and I love seeing others outfits! But I really want my blog to be a bit more personal maybe, in terms of my interests.
  After University, I really want to have a career on the lines of magazine editorial or writing, and there's one magazine that I always look forward to buying at the end of each month. I really, really love home interiors magazines, and am really interested in interior designs, with the changes in styles through the seasons. And so, I think i'm going to maybe involve this interest more in my blog, starting with my favourite designs, or products, of the month! I hope you will all finding it interesting to read, I've never really written about home interiors, or decorative accessories etc, but it's something that I really take an interest in, so i'm going to give it a go. 
Also, a couple of posts ago, I mentioned an Internship I have coming up in July. It's with my favourite magazine, Homes & Antiques! I'm so unbelievably excited, it's a dream come true for me! So this ties in pretty nicely with what I have planned for the future of this blog! I'll still be having all of my usual posting too! 
What do you think about my suggestion? I really hope you're interested in my upcoming plans! And let me know if you have anything particular you'd like to see!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.

  1. I think it's a great idea, I love interiors as well and I think it's something a lot of bloggers are interested in - it's always a treat when a blogger does a post about their bedroom or whatever! I think an interest in fashion is often going to go hand in hand with wanting to make your house look nice too! And congratulations on the internship, that's so great!

  2. I think it's a lovely idea. I love reading blogs that are slightly different to others so I'll definitely enjoy any new posts you have to offer. I can't believe I've never even heard of that magazine, it sounds perfect. I love reading home magazines and dreaming of my future victorian hours with all my little trinkets inside...(: x

  5. I think this is a great idea! It's nice to read blogs that really show the interests and personality of the author :) I'm trying to start integrating some of my interests more into my blog, it feels a little same-old, same-old at the moment as well. I'm looking forward to your upcoming posts!

  9. i admire that you did a more personal post - and i know how you feel - sometimes i wonder how others view my blog and why mine is relevent when it has no content that i feel makes it unique. But it is unqiue cos there is no one quite like you - and you just need to tell yourslef that x

  10. Oh, I feel like that all the time! And, this may just be mine, I find that when I do something that's not a generic outfit post I receive less comments? I don't really mind, after all, it's the regular commenters that I care about most (not that I have favourites!), but I just find it odd. Well done on the internship, that's a massive thing, particularly with such a big magazine! Have fun :) I should have one in August, but I don't want to say too much and jinx it, you know? In the end, this is your blog, so write whatever the hell you want! xxx

  15. Go you! Sorry, bit tardy to the party, i just recently discovered your blog! But i loved this, thumbs up for the internship too :) how exciting. I'm in awe of creative people, looking forward to seeing more of your blog! I recently started my own blog, and i just seem to write about food and my feelings on there! I think you're doing an excellent job with your blog, it's a creative thing after all so see where it evolves naturally (this is my thinking anyway!) xx
