Hi everyone! Thanks for sticking around these parts, it's been a while since I last blogged. The numerous blog sales don't really count!
I thought I'd pop up a little post to let you know what's been going on and what to expect in the near future. So, most of this year so far has been taken up with the process of buying a home, something I've been wanting to do for years so I'm super happy with my new build house and have been enjoying making it a home and settling in the past few months.
Another big life event is that I turned 30 last month! I've been dreading leaving my 20s behind but you know what? It's not bad at all, it's just a number! It really means I'm a grown up now though, scary times.
So if that wasn't enough, I also decided to squeeze in a wedding this year. Next month, to be exact! I've been with my fiance for 11 years in November and we've been engaged for 5 of those so I think turning 30 gave me the push to get on with it. I guess I've been stuck with planning the wedding as I didn't want to spend a fortune and I really hate being the centre of attention so I didn't know where to begin with it all. Recently I decided to just do it exactly how I want though, a tiny ceremony for our closest family, on a weekday, with no huge reception, but a lovely honeymoon to go on. I feel good about getting that organised as the most important bit to me is the actual marriage, not the day. I totally understand why people want a huge celebration though, the key is doing what makes you happy.
Moving on to the bloggy stuff. As I said, I've neglected my little corner of the Internet for a good while now and whilst I'm looking forward to getting back to it, I'm still waiting on getting wifi sorted in my house. No one told me it was going to be so difficult getting my new build all hooked up to the 21st Century!
I was getting bored with my current design so you'll notice that I've got a new template now which I love and it looks so much better on mobile devices too, yay! (Note: ignore the fact that old posts look rubbish as the image quality hasn't been that great on my more recent posts and I've changed the width of my blog now! New posts will be better, I promise!) I'm in the process of getting a new header designed too so that should be up in the next week. I'm really excited about the changes and can't wait to get blogging again. Whilst I'll still be blogging about beauty primarily, I'm looking to mix things up with some other posts too. I'm thinking more lifestyle things like days out in the North East, healthy eating and fitness, home decor and whatever else takes my fancy. I guess we'll see how it turns out!
Looking forward to re-inventing my blog and speaking to you all soon!
