Wearing: Converse High CT All Star 70 Hi Pride Sneakers; Cargo Pants from Nasty Gal; Sweatshirt from Nasty Gal

I've been adopting a more relaxed style after spending alot of weeks working from home and being in isolation. I think everyone is? I've noticed everyone is into lounge or active wear. I think the idea of not going back into the office has shifted they way everyone dresses. I'm in the same boat so definitely not complaining about my sneakers, jumpers and loose pants as they're pretty comfortable. 

A great source of comfort for me these last few weeks is music. So I'm also here to talk about what I've been consuming lately. Anddddd it's been alot of BTS - and that's what the title "Converse High" title is inspired by. 

I've been listening to them casually since they performed DNA at the AMAs 2017 and when they first appeared on Ellen. Now at 31 years old I was convinced I was too old for K-pop having been obsessed with it in my high school years with acts like Rain, Boa, Shinhwa, Se7en, Fin.K.L etc etc but I still appreciated BTS and liked listening to the pop bops Boy with Luv, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Idol etc etc

Fast forward to June 2020 where I watched them on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden and J-Hope really pulled me in with his energy and huge smile. Then Jin cracked that funny "let's all laugh" joke, then I decided to simply learn their names and I then I fell into the deep rabbit hole. 

Several albums later, I can say I'm a fan (ARMY?) but anyways I've been watching their RUN BTS show - a variety show where the members do various games, challenges and adventures and it really lets us get an insight into their personalities and interactions.

This was really meaningful for me to watch because you can see how humble they are and that they as a group have such wonderful friendships - laughing together, teasing each other and supporting each other. It is such a vast difference from learning about Western artists I follow. It reminded me of my own friendships and I suddenly missed hanging out with them.

It really highlighted that no matter how big you get in terms of fame and wealth, you also have to realise how small you are in this world and that your friends and family should always come first. They really taught me to continue to nourish my relationships and be thankful for my friends and family's existence.

I've also found a sense of community within Youtube and Twitter (although fans on Twitter can be scary if you're not careful); so it's nice to connect to them. BTS has also bought me and my friend Lisa closer together these last few weeks as I finally told her I'm a fan and she squealed and I squealed and now we have spent the last few weeks learning BTS dances for exercise. It's been so fun because I absolutely love to dance and the fact that alot of my concerts I had planned to go to got cancelled due to Covid I was able to relive that same happy feeling I get when I dance. We mastered Boy with Luv, 21st Century Girl and now attempting IDOL (which is so hard I'm scared I'm going to break a knee). But we always tackle every challenge with a laugh.

Being forced to stay home, to be safe and keep our loved ones out of danger, I really did have a hard time since we were put into isolation. I was told to stay home again and work from home these last two weeks but I'm handling it much better because I have a great positive influence in my life right now. I've been taking the time to care and listen to my friends and family and put their needs before mine and I feel alot happier that I still have a lust for life. I've been laughing alot more and showing my love more openly. I guess that's why I'm so keen to blog these days because I feel like I need to document on what a great life I've had so far.

Purchasing these shoes was an easy decision for me - they are colourful and fun, just how I feel about life at the moment. They are part of the Converse PRIDE collection - a community I am also close with as I have friends and family that I cherish and spend time with everyday.  It represents diversity and inclusion and I am all for that. Now in the words of BTS: remember to "Love Yourself" and I have also carried that message with me everywhere I go these days. The Bangtan boys have really led me by example and I'm so grateful for the impact they've had on me so far.

Stay Safe everyone x
