I will now address the fact that I've been fairly absent from my blog for a really long time. There's no real 'reason' as such. I think it's a combination of finishing university and experiencing a bit of a reality shock, a constant feeling of being knocked back and a lack of inspiration that's held me back a bit. I've also put in some HOURS over the summer. I've worked 9 hours a day for 9 days straight, thrown in the odd twelve hours and then fifteen hours back-to-back and just had no time at all for anything. Especially myself.
I really have missed the old blog. The time away from blogging has made me realise what it is to me. It's a little space for self-reflection, creative writing and a place to share my love for fashion, beauty and photography. I'm trying to put a bit more effort into my posts and my photos and I'm looking forward to the feedback I get from you beautiful lot.
There's been a lot that's happened since my last post in June:
I graduated uni. A very odd experience and I don't know how I feel about it if I'm honest. It was a fun experience but hasn't really benefited me in any way and it's just a thing I have ... I really didn't feel like myself on the day, but I really liked seeing my friends and I miss them all terribly!
I went to Leeds Festival. It was so good. I got to see some of my favourite bands at the minute like Alt-J, Bastille and Imagine Dragons as well as seeing some old favourites like Funeral For a Friend, Fall Out Boy and Green Day. I also got introduced to a few new bands like Kodaline and The 1975 who I am OBSESSED with at the moment! I also photobombed a LOT of selfies which I am so proud of.
I cut my hair. Massively rash decision and I just don't even know why nobody stopped me. I do like it short, but I miss my messy hair and my hair is much more effort when it's short and ain't nobody got time for that. It's growing quite quickly though which I'm grateful for!
I went to Mexico. A glorious week away which came at a fantastic time. I was under a lot of stress and anxiety and had been let down a lot which isn't good for anyone so an all inclusive escape was so perfect. I have some lovely pictures I want to share with you all in a post sometime next week.
I joined a gym. Me and my friend took the plunge and I'm really glad we did. Our catch-up times consisted mainly of eating and playing Spyro (don't hate) which is so unhealthy! Four minutes running on a treadmill has made me realise just how unfit I've got which is really sad for me as I used to be pretty active when I used to dance non-stop. I'm looking forward to getting a bit fitter and feeling better in myself!
This was a bit of a long'un and I said to myself I wasn't going to ramble but honestly, I barely speak in real life so WHY NOT!? I hope you're glad I'm back as it would be really awks if you all couldn't care less. I'm looking for some new blogs to read so PLEASE LEAVE LINKS IN THE COMMENTS and I hope you enjoy the posts I have to come :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
