How did I even get here? If you’d told me on New Years Eve 2013 (as I sat around a dinner table in Copenhagen with my boyfriend’s family) that by August I’d have a first class honours degree, a fiance and a job in the city, I’d laugh in your face. That’s not to say that they weren’t in my plans for the year; I just thought I was aiming rather high with 2014’s set of resolutions! That New Years night feels like several years ago now - so much has happened eight months for me. You’ll probably have read a lot about my getting engaged, but click the Wedding button in the header to see all things related to that if this has somehow passed you by. To fill you in on the job front, I attended a few interviews before being offered a role at a media company in London. I feel so ridiculously lucky to have found myself in a job within a couple of months of graduating, and even more lucky that my colleagues are such lovely people.
In a brief moment of nothing-ness on the stuffed but silent (zombie-commuters) train to work, I was hit with realisation of how quickly these life-changes have come about, and how I haven’t had much time to adjust to them yet. I have a do-to list as long as my arm, and whilst I can get a little stressed about how much I have to do, I have to keep reminding myself of how blessed I am to be so busy. I’m sorry to say that due to all this, my blog has suffered a little neglect recently. Looking for work, attending interviews, planning a wedding and starting a job tend to be quite time consuming (who knew?). As I continue in a new job, plan our Wedding and start looking for a house (!!!) there will be a few changes to the blog. I won’t be trying to stick to my now unrealistic schedule of posting every alternate day, but the posts that I do write will hopefully have more substance and be of a higher quality. I love writing about beauty products, and will continue to do so, but I’ve really been finding myself longing to write more ‘lifestyle’ type posts on topics from relationships, religion, student-life and marriage. I want this blog to have more variety and more depth, and be somewhere where I can express myself better. Lots of you actually commented that your favourite posts to read are lifestyle and wedding type ones, so hopefully you will enjoy reading these types of posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
So that’s my little life (and blog) update. Whoever you are reading this post, whether a regular reader or if you just stumbled across this post, thank you. I hope you’ll stick around to see this little change in direction, and do let me know any ideas for posts you’d like to see in the comments, on twitter, or send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
