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.

its-okay

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.
