Why I'll always take chances

Nervously waiting in the Models1 reception in Covent Garden I suddenly thought to myself, ‘hang on, how did I end up here again?’.

So sure, I didn’t win the contract with Models1 x SkinnyDip, but entering the Instagram competition on the back of my ladies’ reminders (thanks CJ I will forever aspire to be organised like you) actually led me to be invited for the final casting at Models1 in London.

Like, that’s pretty fucking cool.

My point is that even when you think there’s no point or you won’t get noticed, sometimes you actually do. And this applies to so many different scenarios as well.

When I messaged CJ and India with the hopes of being picked as the third member of The Girls Club, I never thought I’d end up meeting them both at Kings Cross just a couple weeks later, and then progressing to shoot with amazing brands and creating kick-ass content for the weeks to follow. It’s so surreal, but so good!

For me this outfit is taking a lil chance too because I wasn’t sure my ab-less stomach would really rock this shirt as well as I wanted it too, but to be honest as soon as I put it on I felt fab, and it turned out to be one of my favourite shoots with India teaching me how to ‘smize’ and us three just having a good laugh.

Just like the other girls, I have been falling head over heels for Sacred Hawk lately and they can pretty much do no wrong in my eyes. If you want a statement piece that’s gonna make you feel snazzy this is definitely the brand to go for (check out our last two posts in the series to see what I mean!) and the clothes are affordable too.

If there’s ever a time where you’ve got two options staring you in the face (go for it/or don’t), always pick the one that could potentially add something to your life.

You might not win every time and you might not always be lucky enough to grab every opportunity, but if you at least take a chance on each shot you’re given then you’re welcoming all kinds of amazing things into your life and it might just surprise you how much you actually end up achieving!

  4. Firstly, can I have a dumb moment, and realize that King's Cross isn't only the train station from Harry Potter, but in real like...like wow I feel dumb. Like you said King's Cross, I think Platform 9 3/4. Anywayyyy, I think you look absolutely fab in this outfit. You are totally killing it, and I think you're right. Sometimes fear will always nag in the back of my mind, and I think maybe I totally shouldn't do this, but I'm getting to the point where I think fuck this, and I just gotta take more chances. Great post Georgie xxx
