It’s been a while hasn’t it? If you think about it, technically I haven’t blogged for a year since we already have 2017 and my last proper blog post was in November of 2016! I can’t even describe how much I’ve missed this space of the internet that I can call my own. I feel like whenever we are hitting a wall of boredom or are inspired we need a break in order to recharge, get new perspective and inspiration. In my case it was highly needed. As Halloween has been quite a challenging time for me, creating the amount of content both for this blog and my YouTube channel and posting it in such a short space of time. Let’s just say I needed a breather. And as my blog visually wasn’t up to my standard, last year I wasn’t as inspired to create content as I did in the previous years. But I’m glad to be back. No, I’m beyond happy to be back! When I’ve finally managed to get everything sorted with moving from Blogger to WordPress, finding the ideal theme, which noticed lot’s of bloggers use, at least the ones I read anyway, and as it may seem like a total cliche and completely unoriginal I’m ok being it that way. After all, we all seem to gravitate towards content and aesthetic that we ourselves like. Also massive shout out to my fellow blogger, Jodie who helped me with the whole movement from Blogger to WordPress! And Fossy who helped me with understanding the WordPress format bit more. It will be a while until I get everything 100% the way I want it over here, however I just couldn’t wait another day without posting! I missed you guys, I missed intreating with you, writing, sharing my images and thoughts! It wasn’t until this break when I’ve realised how much blogging means to me! In the course of my “break” I’ve already written couple of posts regarding blogging and self expression and what it means to me and in my opinion they are quite good so please stay tuned for them
To really show my appreciation for those of you who are coming back from the old url and of those who just discovered this blog, welcome by the way! I have a little giveaway for you and it includes two winners. I’ve never done a giveaway but for ages wanted to and I feel like now is the perfect time for it! I’ve collected some items that I’ve bought with my own money and some that were gifted to me on events and press days and I personally already have too much make up and beauty products so instead of selling them like other bloggers do I’d rather give them to you guys! I’m sure you’ll get much better use out of them them me. However the best items for this giveaway aren’t pictured because A. I still haven’t bought them lol and B. I like the element of surprise.
