Body beautiful

So as part of shaking things up here at Wottoncool. I’d like to dedicate more posts to self-esteem and body positivity. I don’t think I’ll get everything right when talking about our bodies and body positivity. But I’m here to learn and start a conversation. And I think thats part and parcel of how the conversation can change, if more people start talking about it.

First up, Ashley Soto! Came across her video interview on BBC and love how vulnerable she allowed herself to be in the interview, talking candidly about suicide and the journey of learning to accept your body. And then really owning the vitiligo and showing her own spin on it. Check out the video below:

Dusting off

Why hello there… it’s been awhile. 3 years. This blog has been sitting (digitally) on a shelf, gathering dust.

A lot has happened to the blogscape since. Instagram . Snapchat. Filters. The rise of global influencers and the local disdain of influencers. But on a more personal front, I guess in the midst of the digital landscape changing, I felt that Wottoncool served no purpose as a ‘fashion blog’. Thus, the silence. But, here I am, dusting off and re-embarking on an adventure of carving out a space to not take myself too seriously and to journal my thoughts, document life experiences, share interesting nuggets of news – on anything that interests me. Not just fashion.

The plan is to trawl through the Wottoncool archives to share snapshots that may or may not have seen the light of day. And then to slowly update less infrequently. Followed by a fresh look as a digital journal of sorts (i’m not good with labels, but essentially, Wottoncool will transform to cover a wider variety of topics/themes/subject matter that more accurately reflects my interests).

So welcome, to the start of the Wottoncool reboot.
