The Life Post | Comeback

Who am I? Yup, you're probably wondering that and I wouldn't blame you in the slightest. I've been a bit MIA but unfortunately life got in the way of my little sector of online life. Having been away from blogging for so long it did leave me to wonder if I really did want to get back into it, if I've missed it. Well, yes, I missed blogging and I missed having this to do - something to look forward to writing. I thought I'd let you in on why I've been so MIA lately and after that we can get back on track....

1. New Job
In May I started a new job. I know it shouldn't make that much of a difference, but I went from working in retail to an office job in marketing. This means I spend at least 8 hours of my day doing online marketing - which is basically what a blog is. So when I come home I'm not always in the mood to pop back onto a computer. Not only that, but the job is in London and I live just outside of Portsmouth - commuting takes up about 4 hours a day - which means less time at home, which has become precious.

2. New House
After I got my new job I was consumed with finding a house for me and my partner. We put an offer on one in July and moved in at the end of October. It was the most stressful process I've ever been through in my life, probably made worse by various different factors throughout the entire thing. What should have been a quick and easy sale soon turned into the slowest and most painful sale in what is probably our estate agents history - they even gave us wine when we closed - which no one else I've met has ever heard of happening before. So then it was moving in, unpacking, sorting things out etc....

3. November
This is literally the busiest month of the year for us. It's my birthday, my mums birthday, my partners birthday and our anniversary. This year we added first month in our new house, holiday and the arrival of two little kittens to this month. Busy doesn't even feel like it covers it. So after all the madness it was nice to just calm down for a few days - even though we were actually still doing house stuff. Hmm.

Anyway, I'm hoping that now everything has calmed down (with the exception of Christmas) I'm going to be available to blog a lot more. I have missed it an awful lot and I've REALLY missed being able to say "I'm a blogger!". As life is so busy at the moment I have a feeling this blog may start swaying more towards lifestyle then beauty but we will see. I will keep doing my reviews etc but it'll probably be nice for you guys to get to know me a bit better as well.

What do you think? What posts would you like to see from me in 2015?


  1. Yay! Love reading your posts! So happy you're back. I thought you'd abandoned it forever! X
