The ins and outs of me

I could sit here and present myself as this 'sophisticated mature' blogger, but what fun would that be? I'm Lucy Jane (Smith-Butler), a 18 year old girl from Manchester with the intentions to achieve whatever goals I want in life and that is a fact. I could make up some classic anecdote about how I was styling outfits by the age of 2 and a professional seamstress at 5, but the reality is I've known for as long as I can remember that 'I won't be happy if my life doesn't revolve around fashion'. And I'm an avid believer in happiness.

A little background of Lucy Jane...
I started this blog late 2012/early 2013 when my 13 year old self decided a combination of picnic edits and inspirational quotes would be the desired content from my audience, needless to say a lot has changed. Over the past four years I've developed my style as for clothes, writing and grown so much within myself. My blog has been a reflection of the struggles (when my content became sparse), amazing experiences (friendships, festivals and holidays!!!) and a collection of some of my favourite outfits over the years. Although I can't say I am the most popular amongst the blogging world, I am pretty proud of what I've achieved.

So what about me?
I find it hard to define what 'me' really is, if I'm honest 'me' is just a jumbled up heap of a whole lot of things. Being creative is my true love; music-loving, picture-taking, freely-dancing, fashion-blogging or hopelessly-rambling, whenever I am creative I am happy. Is it fair to say expressing myself is a talent of mine? I love to feel free. I think being open-minded has changed 'me' a huge amount. When your pathways are wider, there's more that can travel through it. Narrowing your horizons is setting restrictions, holding back from changes and new opportunities will benefit nobody! So being 'me' is hard to explain but summed up through I am a real dreamer. I run away with my imagination, thinking of adventures and a future so wild and wonderful, I crave it!

Speaking as the person I feel right now, I think Lucy Jane is a happy, loving, careless individual. Determined to achieve to her best ability with absolutely NOTHING stopping that! I am slowly fitting into this body and mind I have, simply finding my voice, a voice that is one in so many billions, yet so valuable.

Whats next?
University is the next step, but not quite yet.

 I received offers from University for the Creative Arts in Epsom and University of the Arts in London, both studying Fashion Marketing and Management. I have sat my A level exams and am pretty much done with exams forever, that is exciting! September 2017 was going to be a huge month but unfortunately circumstances have changed and September 2018 will be instead! Being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis this year has halted my life and future plans. The immediate next step for me is trying to manage the disease, getting better and feeling like 'me' again.
