LIFE UPDATE : Vlogging, Bloggers block & Opening up

Most of you are probably wondering where I have been the past couple of weeks as I have not been active on my blog. I wanted to write a life update post to let you all know what’s been going on with me.

So the last time I wrote a blog post I had just started Vlogging, For those of you who don’t know vlogs are basically the video version of blogging. Vlogs have always been something I love to watch on YouTube (probably because we all like to be nosy) so I decided to try it out myself. I really enjoyed filming my first vlog and I was really happy with the response I got on YouTube, I originally wanted to start my vlogs when I go to New York in 4 weeks mainly because I want to document the trip and remember it all but I decided to do a test vlog to see the response it would get.

My blog will probably go into overdrive when I go to New York as I am planing on visiting a couple of blog worthy attractions on my trip for OOTD posts etc as I am lacking inspiration lately which brings me onto my next point. The main reason I haven’t been blogging is for one I have been lacking in inspiration and have hit a bloggers block if you will, I feel like it is very hard to stay original in the blogging community especially for us beauty bloggers hence my not posting. I like to keep as original as I can which can be hard at times.

The other main reason I have not been blogging is because I have started a new job, Most of you won’t know this because it’s not something I talk about often or at all to be honest mainly because I am usually a very private person and I try and deal with things myself which over the past year I have learned the hard way does not work all the time. For the past year and a half or more I have privately struggled with anxiety which before a year ago I didn’t even know was a thing to be honest. It is very easy to get into a frame of mind that is not healthy at all and to stay in that place until you can admit to yourself its okay not to be okay.

This is something I have wanted to talk about for a long time on my blog but I didn’t feel like I was in a position where I was ready to talk about it or to deal with the problem. I don’t want to get too deep into the subject mainly because I don’t know if you all even want to know about it honestly, I am finally in a position where I feel like my life is moving past that stage and on to better things which a year ago I thought would never happen. For anyone out there who relates to what I am talking about my number one piece of advice is to talk to someone about what you are going through … I didn’t and I learned the hard way. Its okay not to be okay and never be ashamed to talk to someone.


If any of you would like me to talk more about the subject or do a post on my experience please let me know. In other happier news I feel like my life is finally going in a direction I can be happy about and I am hoping that will show through in future blog posts. I think this may be one of the most personal blog post I have shared since I started this blog, but I feel like now is the right time for me to open up and be honest. If you have any questions or anything don’t hesitate to contact me.

I also have given my blog a little makeover let me know what you think because I am not 100% on it yet. Thank you for reading and I will talk to you all again very soon.
