Disclosure: This is NOT a perfect blog.

If you’re here looking for perfect, then know that whatever you find here- it won’t be that.

Why? Well because I’m not a perfect person, I don’t have a perfect life and therefore this isn’t a perfect blog.

In fact, it’s everything but. It’s a blog filled with inspiration and faith and creativity and lifestyle. It’s my bizarre ramblings and peculiar ideas. It’s my artwork and my inspiration. Like I said, it’s everything but perfect.

I’ll explain a bit more in a minute, but first, let me introduce myself.

Hi, hello and welcome! I’m Megan writer of this blog and a curly-haired, British-American teenager living in the UK. I’m a summer lover, washi-tape collector and Starbucks obsessor. I’m a big sister, puppy momma, and sprinkle enthusiast. Most importantly though, I’m a lover and follower of Jesus.

And what I hope, is that my blog will be an outworking of all of that. I hope that through everything you read here, will challenge you or inspire you in some sort of way. I don’t claim to be perfect or particularly brilliant at what I do, but I do know that everything I write here is genuine and heartfelt.

I created this blog because I really believe that there is no such thing as perfect. In this age of social media, I think the idea of ‘perfect’ is often forced onto us. We see influencers and bloggers and YouTubers and social media stars, and look at their lives or their bodies (or at least, what they post of these things) and think to ourselves how perfect they are. And then we try and do things to become more like them. We try their workout challenges so our bodies can look more like theirs. Or copy their daily routine so that we can look more like we have it all together. But we always feel disappointed when these things don’t all work out. We worry about our worth or our beauty, just because we can’t seem to match up to how these people present themselves.

I want to have a blog where I can post whatever I want- without it being perfect. And I want to encourage me and you alike to remember that there really is no such thing as perfect. We can chase after ‘perfect’ all we want, but I believe we will never be fully content- because ‘perfect’ doesn’t exist! Honestly, I think the only way we can truly be satisfied is when we surrender to Jesus and put our hope in him, knowing that what He says about us is so much more powerful than whatever the world may say.

Here you will find all sorts of things- creative lifestyle ideas, faith, inspiration and an abundance of happy things. But remember, nothing will be perfect!

So stay awhile and look around, and hey, don’t be a stranger! Get in touch by joining my mailing list, or find me on Pinterest and Instagram.

  1. I really the idea you have going with your blog! People have this idea that others are perfect, when they are really not.
    But I think that there is perfection to be obtained, don’t you?
    Mathew 5:48,
    “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
    We are called to be perfect. Shouldn’t that be a goal?
    I totally agree with you that the perfection most people view in the world is not true perfection, but wouldn’t you say that we should be perfect in the area that most matters: our relationship with God?

    1. Aw, thank you so much, I’m glad!
      And thank you for your thoughts, it made me think. I do see what you’re saying… worldy perfection (‘perfect’ body, ‘perfect’ lifestyle, ‘perfect’ social media) is something we can never achieve because it’s simply not real.
      But then on to Matthew 5:48- I think it’s key to notice that this verse is saying we need to ‘be’ perfect; not ‘do’ perfect. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, we are sinful and we will never, ever be able to measure up- that is why we need God’s saving grace. I think that in realising we will never be able to do perfectly, we are acknowledging that we need God. I think, then, that the perfection referred to in Matthew 5:48 is more of a completeness of character… when we acknowledge our need for saving and are filled with the help of the Holy Spirit and God’s love we are transformed; made new and are able to live as best we can in Christlike imitation.
      As for being perfect in our relationship for God… I’m not quite sure what you mean by this. We’ll never be perfect- there will always be days where we don’t feel like reading our Bibles or where we forget to turn to God first in a bad situation. So from this aspect I don’t think we can achieve perfection in our relationship with God either… unless you mean something else?
      Let me know your thoughts!!

        1. Yes I suppose in some cases it can mean that- like when when we are made new in Christ we become blameless; pure; perfect. I think I was more thinking along the lines of perfect being flawless- especially from a worldly perspective but thinking about it I definitely think it can mean blameless.

          1. Right, so if one can “do perfect” and “be blameless/pure/perfect,” and we are called to perfection (in Christ), then that should definitely be something we strive for, right? (btw, we know that one can be blameless because Job was blameless, Job 1:1)

            I guess what I mean by “perfect in our relationship with God” is that we can’t be perfect on our own or in ourselves. I didn’t really phrase the sentence properly, whatever it is that I meant at the time that I typed it.
            Also, you are right when you say that we won’t be able to do perfectly…we just can’t for whatever reason. But I would want to say that it IS physically possible to reject evil (which Jesus showed us), but we can’t reject evil because we don’t want to badly enough.

          2. Yes, I agree… when we repent and are saved we become new creations and are filled with the help of the Holy Spirit, and with that help and in our new identities we are blameless.

            And yes, I also agree whilst Jesus (with God’s help) was able to not sin, we can’t because we’re sinful by nature/ we don’t want to badly enough- as you said. So then I guess we need to acknowledge our need for God, and that is when we’re forgiven -> blameless -> perfect!
