First Fashion Magazine Feature

First Fashion Magazine Feature

I woke up this morning to some amazing news - Rated 18 Shoes was part of a photoshoot that was published in Ellements Magazine. This is our first ever fashion feature in a publication so you can imagine it's very exciting news.

I've always been the type of person who, while I acknowledge wins, doesn't dwell on them for too long and immediately starts looking for the next win. I don't take the time to really celebrate achievements, no matter how big or small. Initially I took the same approach to the news of this feature - did a happy dance, shared it on social media then started thinking "ok, what's next" but when I broke down crying out of no where I was a little surprised and taken a back. The stress of running a business, especially in such a competitive industry can be A LOT and that part of me that just wanted to be happy and be proud of myself, that part that I always cram into the depths of my conscience, just exploded out today, and I felt so much lighter after.

I always feel like I'm not doing enough even when there is confirmation like this publication that proves I'm doing good. My outburst today reminded me that I need to give myself more grace, be nicer to myself and pat myself on the back a lot more because I do deserve it.
