New Year Refresh: What To Expect from Peexo in 2023

London, UK

We're one month into the new year and I'm setting some new year's goals (January is usually a trial run, right?)

Recently I've been thinking a lot about my content including my blog, YouTube and Instagram but also about life (not to get too deep...) I shared some thoughts and feelings in a story on Instagram a few days ago and I got such lovely feedback which I honestly wasn't expecting and it spurred me on to write something more substantial here on my blog.

The reason I felt like sharing this is because I've been feeling uninspired with social media, mostly Instagram but I think that's down to the fact I'm most active on that platform. If you missed my Instagram story, these were the words I shared:


I'm torn between wanting to do more and choosing to do less which is so contradictory - hence my mind being a bit all over the place at the moment.

One thing I'm really proud of is how far I've come in terms of over-consumption. I'm by no means an example or an expert in sustainability but I'm proud of the changes I've made. Particularly because it's so easy to produce haul content: you place a big order, share it with your audience and then end up with a lot of new stuff - often stuff that you don't really need. I'm 100% guilty of this as I used to share many haul videos on my YouTube channel in the past. I decided to cut down on my shopping habits and ultimately, stop creating haul videos and haul content a year ago now and I'm really proud of myself for doing that. It's a small step and not going to change the world but I feel good in myself knowing that I'm not contributing or promoting over-consumption like I once was. It's never too late to make positive changes!

Something else that has been on my mind is what kind of content do I want to create? The thing about social media is that a lot of people are doing the same sort of thing and it can get boring! I've found myself in a bit of a rut throughout January (possibly down to the January blues) and feeling uninspired which I think started to show. I hate the idea of my content not being good enough due to a lack of inspiration so I decided to reduce the number of daily posts across my socials as a result. I'd rather have fewer pieces of content that are good rather than producing more content that is mediocre.

I love fashion and style and I honestly don't ever think my content will vary dramatically from sharing my daily outfits so when I talk about change, I'm not about to ditch fashion posts for something completely random. Although, I would love to share snippets of other things I also enjoy like books, food, beauty and more!

So that's where I'm at currently - lots to dissect and to think about.

Ending this post on the same note as I ended my Instagram story, I don't expect to gain much from writing this other than a mutual understanding of what's been on my mind. Hopefully you'll stick around to see Peexo grow in 2023.
