November News



Jeepers Creepers, it has been far too long! You’re probably wondering if I have dropped off the face of the Earth, (or maybe you just don’t care) but October was a pretty wild ride from start to finish. 

At the start of the month I gave myself a challenge to vlog and upload every single day in October and although I succeeded (apart from 2 days I took off to feel sane again) I think it’s safe to say that is probably the last time I will do something like that for a while. Albeit draining to chronicle your everyday life, I also put so much pressure on myself to produce a good quality video. Unlike filming and uploading once a week, if there was something I didn’t like about the content or I thought it wasn’t up to my usual quality of work, I still had to solider on and press that ‘publish’ button and anxiously await my critics.

I honestly cannot describe the relief I feel now to not be uploading a new video every day. As someone who is a fairly private person, having so much of my life on the internet for people to see was a hard thing for me. I’m lucky that I can really moderate what I put out there, but at the same time I don’t want to come across and inauthentic and that was a very fine line for me to walk during Vlogtober.

In other exciting news… I’ve moved out! Yes, you read that right- November is the month where I took that big leap and moved out of my family home. I actually can’t believe I’m writing this, I’m seriously so excited to have my own place to call home…no matter how small it is! So you should definitely be expecting some hauls with lots of homey bits and pieces, especially because I’ve taken 3 trips to IKEA in one week alone! Although I won’t be doing a house tour, you can definitely expect some home decor inspiration posts coming up soon as I have been preparing for this move for a while and have some pieces that need to be shown off. 

So the month of November has seen me move into my new place and hopefully a change will be coming to the blog too. I’m currently working on a redesign of my logo and layout and I’m also hoping to pull away from my mostly beauty focus and also incorporate a few more lifestyle posts and become a little more honest and real with you about my life. I just feel like as I am growing up and experiencing new things, I want my content to grow up too. So from How To Deal With F*ckboys to Food Vlogs, I think there will definitely be a little something for everyone. 

I hope you can all understand my need to take off some time from blogging and vlogging this month as I settle in. Honestly, if I don’t get back into it now, I don’t think I ever will and it’s not something I’m wanting to leave behind just yet. So please be patient with me as I try and figure out how this all fits into the new chapter of my life...

  1. Wow that must have been exhausting. I definitely wouldn't be able to commit to that, if I'm not happy with something I just can't find it in me to publish it regardless of any promises made! Congrats on moving out. Huge and exciting milestone for you girl. Enjoy it and take all the time you need. We'll be here waiting for you.

  4. I was wondering why you weren't around lately! Uploading video everyday is not easy, I even struggle with my blog schedule so I know for sure that from day one, I'd have given it up! Congratulations on your new place, I hope all is going well and you get used to your new place. Looking forward to seeing you around more :) x

    Daily vlogging is no joke. I don't think I'd ever be able to do it nor would I want to! You're a superhuman for managing, babe!! Hope you're keeping well & had a lovely Christmas and New Year's <3
