The last six months has felt like one big whirlwind in every single part of my life. It feels like I’ve been put on this crazy ride of completely turning my life upside down and trying my best to follow along with it and still be sane at the end of it all. This might sound really confusing if you only follow my blog, and don’t know me personally or on my other social channels. But hopefully this post will clear the fog on it all and explain why I’ve been so quiet on here for the last six months.
University has been so crazy from the moment it started. This is my second year and the whole course has really heated up this year, as we’re learning about everything in so much more detail and have got more complex assignments to do. Don’t get me wrong I love my course, but being there five days a week and then working all weekend, wasn’t easy to balance.
A huge part of my course this year was applying for a placement, so I could do a year in industry before completing my final year. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do ever since I first went to the open day. So September, October and November consisted of writing cover letters, doing tests and going to an interview. I was lucky that after applying to a lot of different places, I got offered a place with the first company I applied for. I’m so excited to be joining the TJX family and completing a year in Buying and Merchandising with TKMaxx.
This is why as it started to get into October, I began to get really quiet on here and all my social platforms, as I was so busy working, going to uni, applying for placements and doing assignments.
Life, now this is the hardest part to not only write about but also to share. I’ve always kept my blog quite private from the lower points in my life as I like to keep this a really positive and inspiring place, to come and get away from the world for a while. But I feel like now is the right time to share what’s been going on and just make it a lot clearer for all of you.
Early this year, I lost my Mum. It has to be the hardest and most heart breaking moments of my life. As my dad died five years ago, me and my mum have always been so close, and were not only mother and daughter but also best friends too. We would do so much together and always be each other’s cheer leaders through everything. She always supported me in what ever I chose to do, and always pushed me to work hard and achieve as much as a possibly could.
These last four months have been the hardest of my life, and I’m not going to make out that loosing anyone is easy, as it really isn’t, and I’m sure so many of you out there have experienced similar things of loosing someone that’s close to you.
If you do follow me on some of my social channels, you will have been seeing loads of house updates, decorating and interior design posts. That’s because along with everything else this year, I’ve also become a home owner, and a dog mum too! It’s crazy to think that I’m really a full blown adult now, and actually have to pay bills and think about washing and putting the bin out.
However, its not only such an amazing thing for me to have at my age, but also a great project to get my teeth stuck into and investment for the future. So along with my love for fashion and style, I’ll also be taking you on my interior design journey too and all things to do with the house. I’m actually planning to do a brand new office tour post soon, so keep your eye out for that one.
I’m not sure how you all feel about me sharing bits about adulting, organisation, renovation etc.., but let me know whether that would be something you’d be interested in, as I’ve become a bit of an expert when it comes to all things like that recently. As I’ve had to learn fast and understand how everything works pretty quickly.
Getting Back To Blogging...
Getting back to blogging is something I’ve been wanting to do for so long. I can’t tell you the amount of times that I’ve sat down and tried to write my first post, but it just never seemed to come across right. I’m such a perfectionist that I love the post to not only read well, but also look nice so you can have a bit of variety. However, with this post i was determined to get it written and get me back on the blogging game.
So, now I’ve finally got this blog post up and got the ball rolling again, I want to create a new schedule so I can keep creating content for you to read and enjoy. It’s crazy how just writing this post is making me feel amazing, as I’ve been blogging for long it feels like a part of me. I have really been missing it lately, so that’s why i’m back, and back for good this time.
There will be a new blog post every Friday and Tuesday evening at 5PM. I’m going to trial this out and see how well the choice of time and day goes, and I might change it round accordingly. As I want the biggest of amount of you to be able to read it as you can.
The classic categories will be still the main fous of my content, and sharing fashion and style posts over the next few months, focusing on that spring/summer content, holidays, weddings and lot’s of other exciting things that the warmer months bring. I will also be sharing more lifestyle and house posts, which will be randomly thrown in and can be found on my main home page.
The inspiration page will still continue to look beautiful and be updated at the start of every months about what’s inspiring me. So make sure to check out April’s before it gets changed ready for the May edition.
I hope that this post has made everything so much clearer and it’s also made me feel so much better to share it all with you. I can’t wait now to move forward with my classic fashion and style related content, but also share some more lifestyle and interior posts too. I’m really enjoying renovating the house and just making my own, so get ready for paint colours, styling tips, and how to make a space your own..
