Where Have I Been?

Hey Guys!

I haven’t posted on this blog since AUGUST… I hold my hands up and say I have been neglecting it and you all and I am sorry for that but please know I have been thinking about everyone, my friends and my blog. Time has been going crazy fast and life has got a little hectic for me but I am finally here to explain and make a vow that I will be back. (am I a Disney villian?) 

Firstly let me say how I still have a strong desire to blog and I really want to try to get back into it but my life is a little different these days, I don’t have as much free time and when I do, I have been trying to be more sociable but this all leads me on to where I have been so lets find out shall we?

Career 

I finished my Masters Degree and I am now just waiting for my results to come in and then I will have my graduation. I still have two jobs, I don’t know why I’m doing it to myself because it is so stressful as one is working in PR and Marketing for a variety of companies and the other is working in retail. I am actually thinking about leaving my retail job which I have been in for 6 years by the end of this year so I can focus on my new career path into PR and Marketing. I am loving my new job, it has opened my eyes to a whole new path I didn’t know I wanted to go on and my new boss is absolutely lovely.

Health 

My anxiety is doing so much better. For any of you who may follow me on my personal Instagram you may have noticed I have been going out a lot more, posting a ton of selfies… I have a selfie issue. Frankly my issue is I am too focused on getting validation from others on how I look, my friends think I have body dis-morphia but that’s a whole different story.  I am feeling stressed but that’s because I have been putting so much on myself lately with having two jobs and learning to drive, sometimes I feel like I don’t have enough time in the world.

I shall keep kicking my Anxiety’s butt. I refuse to let it not let me live my life. 

 Life 

Since I was last here, I turned 24. I’m so old.
Turning 24 is weird, I don’t know if anybody else has felt this but it was like a wake up call / breakdown moment for me. Life becomes real, I started to think about what I wanted from life in terms of my career etc.  It’s weird when you see people you went to school with starting to have families and get engaged. You have a bit of a panic even though you know you don’t want a family right now and you start to question things.

But really, Life is good. I have now reached the age where I have erased people out of my life who cause constant drama or negative energy and I am focused on just being happy. Since my birthday and my momentary panic/breakdown… I have been making a concious effort to have a social life. Go out more, experience more and see my friends a whole lot more. Time and life as a whole has been going so fast… Perhaps its the fear of being 25 next which means I’m super close to 30 which makes you make the most out of things?

I hope other people have this same fear as me!

Family 

Since I was last year my niece and nephew both started school. I can’t believe their 4 and at school, this has changed our routine up a bit as when I am off I tend to pick them up from school. Essentially I am living that non-stop life where you get to lie down for what feels like 2 minutes…

Come December as well, we will also have a new little one in our family as my sister-in-law is having another baby,  so I will have a new niece or nephew. It’s a surprise this time, which I hate because I am so impatient and I just want to know now. I can’t wait.


Again I am so sorry for having been absent for so long. So many times I have thought about coming on and blogging but after finishing work, I would come home, cook, shower and then watch an episode on Netflix and fall asleep ready to go again.
I appreciate you all for sticking with me and supporting me, it means so much that you have continued to read and follow and I can’t express that enough.

I WILL be posting more and returning to this blog. It might be a slow start for me as Christmas approaches and life gets that little bit more hectic but come the new year I am determined to get back into it.

lets talk

Let me know in the comments what you have been up to. I can’t wait to hear what I have missed in your lives!

    1. Thank you so much lovely for all your support all the time. It means the world to know I have people fighting my corner to kick this Anxiety. My 2019 goal really is to go with the flow, kick my anxiety and just be happy. I’m really trying not to let it get me down. It’s hard and it does win sometimes but it’s still early in the year right?.

      I hope you have a fabulous 2019 too and I would prefer the cats and books to a baby right now too haha!

        You are one of the most amazing people I’ve had the privilege of meeting and I’ll be here supporting you! I’m also just having a very laid back year, I’m basically just going with the flow.

        Cats are way more cute and snuggly, plus they make really adorable reading buddies xx
