Life Update

It’s been a little while since I sat down to log into my WordPress account, let alone to actually write up a blog post and I guess you can say i’ve just been seeing where life takes me these past few months and unfortunately blogging just hasn’t been a priority to me. It hasn’t for a while. Why? I’m not sure but after 6 years of doing the same thing you naturally crave change in some way.

lifestyle, life,

Anyway I thought i’d do a bit of a life update post as it’s been a while and I don’t really know what i’m doing or where i’m going with a few elements of my life, so I thought i’d get it out and almost document this time of my life to look back on in a few months or years to see how things have changed.

Work Work Work

One of the main aspects of my life that has taken a lot of my time has been work. I’m still doing the same job working for a fashion brand very close to my heart and a lot has changed over the last few months where I, amongst a lot of people have had to step up within our job roles, meaning taking on more responsibility, putting in more hours and generally giving more of our time and energy in order to move forward. Due to that my time commitments have completely shifted and my evenings are now typically spent getting in a good gym session and having an early night because I (still) cannot function in the mornings. At the moment i’m not entirely sure what my future is in terms of my job, but I do know in order to get somewhere you have to work for it and that’s exactly what my aim for the future is.

Dating & Boys (ugh)

One aspect of my life that I rarely share on my blog is my dating life because to be honest it’s been pretty non existent since my last relationship ended over three years ago. If i’m honest i’ve just not been interested in boys and the hurt that they *can* cause but this year I finally opened myself up to the idea of dating and boy have I learnt a lot! I’m not going to go into details but i’ve had my fair share of dating experiences this year. Some only lasted a few dates, and one turned into what I guess you could call a summer fling but i’m currently back to being single and just enjoying my life for what is is. It’s safe to say dating now is completely different to what it used to be and learning how to adjust to that has been a minefield of it’s own, but if you’re thinking of dating do it because i’ve had some of the best months and i’ve learnt so much about myself.

Travel & Plans

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll of seen that I travelled to Rhodes with one of my best friends at the end of August and I honestly had the best time and a well deserved break. I did contemplate doing a post on Rhodes and the places we visited but I didn’t really take many photos and instead just enjoyed having some down time but if you’re looking for a quiet but scenic break, i’d highly recommend checking out Rhodes.

Over the next couple of months I have a few things planned, including a little trip to London with my Mum to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour as we’ve both wanted to go for such a long time and i’m so excited! I’m also going to Amsterdam at the end of November for one of my friends birthdays and i’ve never been to Amsterdam before, so if anyone has any recommendations please leave them in the comment below!

Blogging

Finally I thought i’d touch on blogging because if i’m honest i’m completely lost in terms of blogging and where I want to go with my blog. I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts that i’ve lost my love and mojo for blogging, and that is still very much true but it’s something i’m not ready to let go especially as i’ve been running this blog for 6 years. One thing i’m so guilty for is comparing myself to others and that has to stop because blogging isn’t and never will be my full time job, so I can’t expect myself to put in the same energy and time as those who are. Having said the above I am 100% doing my yearly Christmas gift guides as they give me so much joy and I loved putting together the ones I did last year so keep your eyes peeled for those. Going forward i’m not sure where this little blog will go and my posts may continue to be sporadic for some time, but i’m okay with that and I hope my readers are too!

So that’s a little update for you all on where i’m at with life and blogging etc. and if any of you have tips or recommendations on anything i’ve mentioned above i’d really appreciate it.

What have you been up to recently? Any travel plans?
