Long time, no speak.
It’s safe to say, I have been a little absent on the blog front and i’m not particularly happy about it. If you’ve been following me on socials over the last month or so, you will know I got myself the dream job in London. It has to be said, its been a MASSIVE step from my previous job and getting used to full time work and the commute has been tough. Im leaving super early in the morning and not getting home until 7pm which isn’t particularly ideal but I don’t realistically earn enough at the moment to live in London. I am tired…ALL the time but I am absolutely loving my job and actually think it was the best move for me. It makes the commute worth it thats for sure.
Due to this, I have spent little to no time on my blog or youtube. To be completely honest with you, I really haven’t wanted to. Not because I don’t want to…I really do…but because I stare at my phone and computer all day so when I finally have free time, I just want to chill or watch something on Netflix. I find it so hard to switch from my working day to working on my blog. Sometimes you just need that chill time watching a bit of Grace & Frankie on the train home. HOWEVER, Im starting to get into the swing of things with my job and starting to get used to the commute and making the most of the time I have. I have started by getting my emails done on the commute to work which means I can check back in on the commute home/reply to any urgent ones whilst at work. Hopefully once I have really got into the swing of the commute life, I will be able to start thinking of blog posts and writing a little bit more.
I know you’re probably thinking, but what about your weekends. WELL my weekends often tend to be quite busy or really chilled. Sometimes I have the time to work on my blog and other times, I wanna chill and enjoy my weekend. I don’t have much time to chill during the week so weekends are my time to really relax. Especially at the moment as my mum is currently in hospital recovering from an operation and visiting her at hospital every night is exhausting…especially after commuting to and from London every day. She should be out of hospital soon which means I will have a little more time to chill but for now, its important that I get to see her because I hate the thought of her feeling lonely in hospital.
With all of the not so fun news out of the way, I can start giving you good news.
One thing I have had the chance to work on is my INSTAGRAM. As you know, I love Instagram and I love creating content for it. I really didn’t think that I would get much of a chance to take outfit photos for my Instagram and blog but oh how I was wrong. I work very closely with a lovely girl called Izzy who also has a blog and we very quickly started working shoots into our daily routine. Every day at lunch we go and take some snaps of our outfits and because we both enjoy it, Its worth missing half of your lunch hour for. We also get on really well so its just an enjoyable time. It means that I am managing to get more outfit content out on my Instagram which I feel so happy to be able to do. It means I don’t have to spend my weekends shooting outfits. I can do it during the week whilst i’m wearing the outfit and really enjoy my weekends. After all, you gotta make the most of the weekends. If you have been following my instagram, I would love to know what you think of my new content?!
Whilst we are on the topic of Instagram, I have to thank every single one of you who has followed me recently. As I am writing this I currently have 13.7K followers and I honestly can’t believe it. I feel so lucky to be at this point. There was a time when I thought I was just going to keep declining forever but I kept at it and Im so thankful to all of you who follow me. It makes me feel so happy knowing that I am doing something right. I am hoping to hit 15K by the end of the year and If I do, I think I will be holding a giveaway or something to say thank you because I honestly can’t believe it. Thank you.
Last by by no means least…I have to mention one thing. ITS ALMOST CHRISTMAS. I am so excited for Christmas, I have already watched 5 Christmas related movies and Im not afraid to say that. I really want to be able to do some Christmas related posts this year but I am not sure If I am going to get the chance to do it. If I do, You will be sure to know in advance.
