I'm Back...and feeling more motivated than ever!

After not posting anything since April, finally figuring out what I want with my blog...I'm so happy to say that I'm back!

Firstly, I wanted to start off by saying thank you so so much to those people that have still continued to come onto my blog every day even though I haven't been posting anything for quite a few months! It blows my mind how many views I have still had, even though I haven't been active, so thank you! It has been almost 5 months since I last posted anything on here, which is a very long time, so I do have some explaining to do...

To make it super simple, I just needed a bit of a break from the blog. It got to a point where I was extremely busy, couldn't find anyone to help with photos and that I was just rushing posts which is not what I ever wanted. If I didn't have the time to create posts that loved and was posting things just for the sake of it, then I knew I wasn't going to enjoy it anymore. So, I decided to take some time off the blog to figure out what I wanted to do with it and work out a balance that could work for me.

Having a full time job and a social life and all of the other bits you have to do as well as running a quite difficult! But now I feel like I have worked something out that will work well for me and give me the right balance with everything else. I have figured out a plan that allows me to post regularly and have the time to create posts that I am proud of. It maybe doesn't take 5 months to figure this out...but having a bit of breathing space has given me more motivation than ever!

You shouldn't feel so hard on yourself for having some time off and some thinking time. There were moments where I was really annoyed at myself for not posting and having time away from the blog. But now, I am really happy to have given myself a break to figure out how I was going to make it work. I have now got a plan that I am happy with and it allows me to fit my blog into my already hectic schedule. Blogging is always something that I have adored, so it's not something I ever wanted to give up, It's just about finding the right balance for you!

So, the plan...I am hoping all will go well with the ideas that I have got and most importantly, I hope you guys agree. I plan on posting once a week on a Sunday. There will be a mixture of lifestyle, beauty, fashion, advice posts and more! I am feeling very creative with ideas for posts at the minute but as always, if there is anything you want to see from me, please just let me know!

As well as my blog, I also have lots of ideas for my Instagram too. As I am a big lover of photography, Instagram is definitely my favourite social media platform. I love following so many amazing bloggers on there, so please send me your pages so I can follow you guys! If you want to see more from me, here's the link to my Instagram!

Lastly, I wanted to share with you an amazing photographer who I have recently discovered and has taken all of the images for my blog post! Introducing the amazing Josey Grace! I had seen Josey's work a lot on social media recently and she is a local photographer for me. After seeing her style of work and all the amazing reviews, I decided to get in touch with her to help me shoot my relaunch images! It's safe to say that this is the most amazing shoot I have ever done! Josey is the loveliest person in the world and we had so much fun shooting these images. I think she is so talented at what she does and I can't describe to you how happy I am with these images! You will definitely be seeing a lot more of that name on the blog and also a lot more of her work! If you want to check out more from Josey, please go and look at her Instagram or Facebook page!

So there you have it! The reasons to where I have been for the past 5 months and the plan for the future of the blog! I hope you all understand why I took the break and are hopefully excited for whats to come. I do have some very exciting things planned and I can't wait to share the journey with you all! I hope this post gave some of you a reminder to not be so hard on yourself! Life can get busy sometimes and a lot of us feel like we have to live up to what everyone else is doing around us...but you don't! Take time to look after yourself, give yourself well deserved breaks and don't worry about what anyone else will think. 

'Sometimes it takes an overwhelming breakdown to have an undeniable breakthrough.' 

See you next Sunday!
