Let's Catch Up





Hey.

Im sitting down to blog considering I’ve completely lost my voice and if I tried to voice my feels it’d come out as a croak. 

 It’s been a while hasn’t it?

If you don't follow me over on social media (here and here) then you wouldn’t have known that I’d spent the last week in  Vegas for my Birthday. It was a blast and to blame for the afore mentioned lack of voice. Delayed hangover probs.

Point numero uno. I really miss blogging. Although Im sure you’ve heard me wail that before in the last 6 months and are like GOD LILY YOU ARE SO FLAKEY. But bare with me here.

I’ll openly admit I’ve gone off blogs in the last year or so. I don’t know why, I think I finally  *got* youtube and now I spend my days watching kids toy demos and watching people do fast food reviews in their cars. Yeah the weird part of Youtube. 

But there is still a soft spot in my heart for blogging and after a quick refresh of my Bloglovin feed, out with the old and in with the new I feel a bit more inspired too actually tap out some things. 

Part of it is the fear of coming back and part of it just feeling like Im not that good at it? Im no Wordsworth and my copy could be greatly improved but at the same time it’s cathartic and nice to just put some words on the screen. Plus I can type from behind my screen in my jim jams pretending Im looking FAB even though Im currently wearing a Monument Valley Hoodie, ugly off white socks and my Christmas Jim Jams.

I’ve been feeling p. content recently. I feel like I’ve finally worked out all the kinks in my life and feel at a place where I can move forward and most importantly upwards. I had a wobbly few months earlier in the year where I thought my anxiety was going to get the best of me but after a few deep breathes and some Beyonce on repeat I feel like myself again.

Im generally a pretty self aware and self assured person. The kind of person who can support themselves and doesn't need other people to make them feel good. Most of the time I can get myself out of funks and feeling like poop but y’know those periods where the littlest thing can send you off on a path of self destruction? Yeah one of those?

I think that having down periods is part of being a human and it’s perfectly normal to not always be 100% on it. Social media makes us feel like we have to be up and at ‘em all the time but it’s cool to have a few days to yourself focusing on your own mental health every now and again.

Stopping myself from overworking myself and stressing myself out has really changed my ability to cope with the work I have on my plate and the things I do and thats cool.

Uh, What else. Im not sure where to go from here. A lil life update, well Im in the process of buying a house. I don’t really want to move from my flat as I do love it but I know I should be investing my money in property rather than sitting on it waiting for a rainy day. 

Why isn’t stuff like this taught at school? I’ve read so much about house buying and mortgages I don’t even know who I am anymore. I feel like a kid who was accidentally allowed to grow up and do all these adult things even though I have no idea.

Other than that my life is back to it’s overwhelmingly normal self. Which to be honest is when Im most happy. I like working on my own personal projects and videos and doing simple things like going for chips on the beach or going for a bike ride. I've learnt to focus on me time and doing the things I want to do rather than keeping up with the Joneses. 

I’ve tapped out a few more posts for the rest of the week today but who knows how long this burst will last. If you’re still here then cheers for sticking around. You’re the real MVP. Ta x

    2. My name is Andy James currently living in california USA Am writing this letter because am really grateful for what Elvin Morrison did for me and my family when I thought there was no hope he came and make a way for me and my family by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%.

I've always really loved your posts so I'm excited to see your new content :) I know it may be off-brand for a fashion blog, but I'd love to see some Game of Thrones/ASOIAF posts (as I'm also a huge fan girl & would love to know your thoughts on the show/theories etc!).

    Glad to see you enjoyed Vegas as well, the pics looked awesome!

  14. I'm glad that you're feeling better about yourself and feel more inspired to blog again :) I really relate to not feeling like an adult. I keep thinking that one day I'll "grow up" but it just never seems to happen. x

  15. Sometimes it is necessary to take a break from things to be able to get back into it, blogging definitely being one of those areas. You have been doing amazing things on your Youtube channel, so I can understand why your blog has taken a backseat. x

  18. Enjoying your honesty as always. Shout out to the 'normal, simple things'. It's dumb the way we fall into the trap of thinking these things are not enough. Adulting is weird but I think self awareness is the biggest challenge, and if you're getting somewhere with that then you're doing ok.

    1. I'm so excited everyone!
      My husband said he is now gay and he dose not love me any more after 4 years that we have been together. I was hurt and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me the contact of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice then to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details and he also told me the items which will be needed in casting the spell which i provided him money to get, after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me back home, then i gave Dr Unity a call regarding the sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me forever, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband are back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging.
