Are you scared of what people think?

Shoes : ASOS (old)
Oh look at me, I took moar photos outside. Hurrah. I was kind of embarrassed to do this incase people saw and were like WHY IS THAT GIRL POSING WITH A TRIPOD, especially as there was a block of flats behind me, The Others (as my blogger idol ForeverAmber calls them) could be watching… 

In the end I decided that I did not care. You may look at me if you wish, but I do not know you and you do not know me. I will never have to speak to you so think what you want about me standing in my garden in a dress and heels, playing model. *sticks tongue out*. THERE. How d’ya like them apples?

Those of you that brave the outdoors with your tripod and pretty clothes, how do you feel about people seeing you take photographs of yourself? Do you find it easier if there is somebody taking the photographs?

Are you the type of people that worries what other people think about you in general? 

I am one of those people that wishes to be liked by everyone, I worry about what people think and feel about me. I wish I could be more carefree and not give a damn, but I do, I do. I am a bit of a perfectionist and crave approval. It is both the best and worst quality of mine. 

Today is DOFF, which means I am in a good mood. Work has not been fun the past few days, everyone is under pressure, there is too much to do and not enough people to do it, it makes it hard to do my job because I have to do other peoples jobs first. Weh. 

I need to go to La Poste now because I missed a package the other day from Royal Mail. Thankfully the place I have to pick it up from is just down my street. Phew!

UPDATE

I went to the post office, down the street to get the parcel, I did find it quite strange how it said it was open until 6pm and it’s usually only open til midday or 2pm! Anyway, off I went. The door was locked. I looked at the times on the back, it said Thursday til 6pm. Then I looked at the address:


Notice how how it says at the top ‘Your item is waiting for you are your LOCAL delivery office’.

West Sussex.

I live in Leeds.

I typed the address into maps


4 and a half hours to get there? WHAT? Are you seriously telling me that Royal Mail took my package 4 and a half hours away?????? This must be some mistake. 

Anyone fancy a road trip?

Happy Thursday Everyone.

  2. I love the black tights, belt and shoes with the navy and cream dress! YOu look great, and I don’t care what people think of me. I wear what I want whenever! I can be ridiculous at times! xx Pip

  3. love the dress! i really don’t care what people think of me, but taking pictures of yourself is just one of those things that make me feel really silly and self-conscious, haha! was so much better when i had a big garden and no-one could see me:-) x

  4. Ha…ha…ha…! You continue being so funny!! I really like your skirt and how you´ve combined it. My 11 years old Gonzalo uses to be my photographer, because my husband (who was the first phptographer of my blog) is too shy, and he cares always about people think (and, to be honest, he cannot take photos as well as my son ;D ). Kisses!!!

  5. That’s crazy about your package, I hope they’ll resend it to you, that trip would be crazy! As for posing with a tripod, it was embarrassing at first, but ultimately I so prefer outdoor pictures and my neighbors have gotten used to seeing me posing in my front yard 🙂

  6. Lol Corinne, if I live nearer I will accompany you to take the parcel!:P Btw, I can get you, I feel so embarassed when take photos outside, though there is someone who takes them! People look at me in a strange way and in fact the face looks always pretty nervous!:) Love the dress, looking pretty! Kisses! xo

  7. You crack me up! lol that’s right girl! you shouldn’t care what anyone thinks. I was like that at first too, but now i sure don’t. I bet by now my neighbors think i’m either in love with my self, or wish to be a model lol who know what they think!? a lot of them just stare, but I got to do what I got to do! Deal with it! lol

  10. Ok, now I want to know what happened with your package! You look amazing and don’t worry about what people may think

  11. I totally agree with you on the subject of taking pictures. Sometimes I get really embarrassed and pretend I’m taking pictures of other things. I love your blog would you like to follow each other? Let me know. Holliw x

  12. Thanks for your comment earlier! 🙂 Hey, I am now also following you via bloglovin and if you can, next time you stop by, would you also follow there too? Talk to you soon! xx Pip

  13. Haha #RoyalMailFail ….and a-yes I did just hashtag on blogger lmao :p

    I feel the exact same about taking photo’s by the way, only I don’t even have a tripod, just a mum haha.

  14. Hello there!!! I like your outfit! Unfortunately I was the kind of person that cares what other think but when I started blogging I got over it! Now I dont care! I am what I am and thats all 😛
    Have fun crazy girl!!! 😀 kisses

  15. I don’t really care about other people in general. If I had a tripod I’d probably ask people to join me haha!

  16. Did you do something to your hair or is it just the light? Looks nice anyway, just as you outfit 🙂 Oh and when I shoot with a tripod then I do it inside because I find it definitely less amabarassing when somebody takes your pics. At the beginning I was so shy about that but meanwhile I did it in the town centre and on the street and to me my blog and the good pics are more important than what stranger think of me 😉

  18. in the past I did think about what other people would think if I did something, but lately I don’t care anymore. You just have to live your live and do whatever makes you and the people in your environment happy! just be yourself, pretending like someone else never makes you come further in life! xx

  19. I was embarrassed at the beginning but now I don’t care much.. it makes me laugh when people stop and stare

    Btw, love the dress!!

  21. OH that’s horrible!! Did you call your mail service and get it sorted out?!

    I think everyone to some degree care about what other people think. I tend to think I don’t really, but who doesn’t want to get approval!

  22. You look amazing, thank you for your lovely comment on m blog 🙂

  23. OH NO! 4.5 hours away! Screw dat sheet. I too sometimes get caught up worrying what people think of me. At the end all you can do is be the best you, then if people hate it, there was nothing you could have done anyway!
    I used to hate going out the back with my jump rope – but you just have to zone out and DO EET! Cause that is one kick ass workout.

  24. Oh I can totally relate you this post! I hate taking pictures outside and thinking people are judging me for taking selfies. Ughh it’s the worst! One time, I saw a bunch of kids walking down the street as I was doing this and grabbed my camera and ran inside!:p
    But no worries, I’m sure people who saw you were like, That girl looks freaking awesome in that outfit! Because you do:)
    Hugs & Kisses,

    1. Haha, I’ve done that before, ran inside. Oh dear! I bet that just makes us look even sillier.

  25. That sucks!! And its ridiculous!

    I get sooooooo awkward when I take pics in public! Im trying to do it step by step.

  26. I don`t care at all what people thing.
    Btw you look so lovely with that dress
    kisses
    Have a beautiful day dear

  27. i totally agree. you don’t have to care about what people say or think… although it’s hard to put it on practice hehe… thanks for comment in my blog =) i follow you now. xoxo!

  28. Personally I hating taking pictures outside by myself, it’s so much easier when you have someone taking pictures of you, not to mention, less embarrassing… but you did pretty well, these pictures are cute!!

  29. Hi Corinne!
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog.
    Very nice look today. I loved the combination of clothes. You are so pretty. Kisses and I wish you a nice day:)
    If you want to follow each other let me know.

  30. 😀 That seems extra dumb actually, to take something 4 hours away when you already brought it there.:D I wonder what’s in the parcel, I hoped that the update was going to reveal it…

    I used to care about other people’s opinions too. I wanted EVERYBODY to like me, everybody. I don’t know what happened or what I did to change, but now I couldn’t care less – it probably happened because I cared so much that I simply got fed up with it. Now, I hate myself for trying to please everybody back then… But I’m not at ease when taking photos, far from it.:D I wouldn’t be able to take my tripod out, no way, I have to have someone with me taking the shots.:)

  31. Hey girl, I love this outfit! You look simply stunning, I especially adore your heels! You picked such great pieces, this is a fabulous look. Keep up the great work and feel free to check out my blog 😉 Kisses from New York City

  35. Yea of cos, we tend to care about what others think. Which sometimes can be quite bad for us i feel. Thats a really nice contrast. well done dear.

  36. I couldn’t agree with you more – we should all not worry what people think! I’ve been blogging for a few months now and the furthest I have gotten to take pictures is in my back garden hidden from view even then I am paranoid of my neighbours peering over! I need to conquer my fear and face the wild outdoors!!

    Well done lady!

  37. Your style is always gorgeous <3
    I saw you’ve got a problem with a box, look forward sending!
    Have a good weekend lady

  38. Dear Corinne, good idea not to take care about what other people think although this seems to be not really easy for your! But in my opinion life is much more fun not to take care about other people and it´s never ever reachable that everybody likes you – equal what you do.

    I´m happy that I don´t care about other people, but this is sometimes a little bit difficult for my dear fellow men, especially my dear familiy. Because sometimes I´m doing really embrassing things and my fellow men/family shames are so ashambed about me …

    So for me it isn´t a problem to take photos outsides but sometimes I´m alone with my opinion and this is a problem because I need always photographers.

    Anywhy – I like your outfit and wish you a wonderful and sunny weekend 🙂

  42. Aaaaw! What a mess!!! Is the Royal Mail going crazy?! Let us know how this story ends 😀
    I btw take my photos in our garden (at least most of them) – I always hope that none of our neighbours sees me ^^ This would be very embarrassing.. so YES, I DO care what other people think 😀
    Anyway.. your dress is beautiful <3

    xoxo, Nina

  43. You look absolutely gorgeous! I try not to care but I really do care what people think of me. However, I love crazy makeup and fun clothes too much to let other people put me down. I don’t want to spend my life being boring because I am too concerned about how other view me! xo
