Hi, it’s me again (…again ??)

Hey! Nice to be back on here finally with a new post, and I hope you guys like it – it’s just a little outfit I threw together for a family meal. The velvet ruffle skirt paired with the wide belt made me feel like I was giving off some gothic pirate vibes, haha!

 

Sorry I disappeared on you a little bit since the start of the year. I want to keep updating here and posting all this new content that I have all these ideas for, but I had to give myself a bit of time out. Having a full time job that has been getting more and more demanding, alongside trying to dedicate my free time to my blog/instagram work is really tricky! I really don’t know how some of you guys do it – please share all the tips!

As much as I wish I could do everything to the ridiculous standard that I’m happy with, I… well, I’m one person! And as I didn’t really consider that, my body instead elected to remind me by manifesting the stress I have been putting myself under in the form of super-fun things like stomach aches, migraines, bad skin & bloating (woo). I also became way more quick-tempered, anxious and less appreciative of everything around me. I knew I needed to make changes.

So gave myself a little bit of a break, just to get me back to my more ‘normal’ self. Now I’m refocusing myself again, starting to push myself to spend a little time each day working towards my goals. Most importantly, I just need to remember to see the joy in the little things! I was such a work robot (and consequently ill) for such a while that I was stuck in a work-eat-sleep routine where I never stopped to enjoy anything, which is so SAD!

 

So – my question to you guys: how do you balance blogging and a full time job? I could DEFINITELY do with picking up some tips, so please drop me a comment!

Moving on…

Sorry for going on a bit of a ramble there – I just thought the honesty was important. I didn’t want to just come back and launch into normal outfit posts again without any kind of an explanation! I hope you understand.

Anyway – back to regular content! There’s more pictures of the outfit below, including this mahoosive faux-fur coat that I picked up on ebay a few years back for a steal of a price (still so proud).

Thank you so much for stopping by, for reading my ramblings, and just having a look at what I do. It really does mean so much! I hope you have a wonderful day – take care.

    Yeah, I’m so happy to see you post, your outfits and rambling are always so uplifting and inspirational! I’m loving how you paired up the belt with the rest of the outfit, you look stunning in that combo! The velvet mixed with the shirt and boots and that belt, PERFECTION <3
    Ahh I know how you feel hun, working full time and blogging, it can be tricky, I usually set myself a schedule that I write in my diary so that will help me stick to it as I have something reminding me to create more content, I also barely sleep in order to do that but I don't recommend it. But yeah, usually a written reminder to blog on certain days is helpful ^_^ Of course it all depends what works for you.
    I'm sorry for this long comment, btw!

    Can't wait to see more from you! And it was so lovely seeing you during London Edge! <3

    Your hair color looks so vibrant on black it’s amazing. I love this look as always, you can really pull off everything. And as for the honesty part of the post, I’m sure blogging when you have a full-time job might be really hard! Good luck with trying to find a balance. My tip would just be to blog whenever you can and feel like posting, there’s no need to put pressure or give deadlines, it just makes it more stressful 🙂 Your readers (including me) love your posts anyway, even if it’s only one a month hehe <3
