An Update. 06/09/17

I’m currently sitting at a table in a service station reflecting on how wonderful and fun-packed a month August has been: Between celebrating my 21st birthday (on at least three separate occasions) and jetting off to a villa with my boyfriend for a 2 week holiday in Benalmadena, Spain – I’ve just been so carefree and happy-go-lucky and not gave a second thought to ‘reality’. Everything has took a back seat: my blog, social media, collaborations & deadlines, university, messages, emails… anything serious, mundane and important has been pushed to the back of my mind. I know that’s bad; but it’s how it’s been. I’ve tried to just have a little bit of a detox, away from life, away from everything. But being back home has hit me like a ton of bricks. I’ve got so much to catch up on and I can’t seem to bring myself to get anything done. I don’t know where to begin. 

My holiday was fantastic. I never realised how much I needed it until I was there, living it, taking it all in. I crawled right out of my comfort zone and pushed myself to do things I’d never done before. We did so much: theme parks, water parks, safari’s, zoos, butterfly parks, cable car rides, markets, long walks, exploring, eating out here there and everywhere… I can’t believe I did all that. Me. I’ve never done so much in my life. In the space of 2 weeks I went on sooooooo many adventures that will stay with me forever. And ever. 

I feel terrible for abandoning my blog. I have lots of exciting collaborations to write up featuring brands whom I’ve worked with, lots of updates to tell you all about in my life, posts about my 21st birthday that I told you guys I’d write – I need to get my head down and start writing. I just don’t have the energy or enthusiasm to even turn my laptop on; hence why I’m writing this post from my mobile phone in a coffee shop.

I will get there again. I will get my head back in the game. I just need to give myself time and let it happen naturally. I just wanted to write this very brief post to let you all know what’s been happening with me. I’m so sorry I’ve been so distant. I hope to be bounce back soon. 

Lots of love. Always.

    I’m so pleased that August was such an excellent month for you, because you absolutely deserve it. Your holiday sounds amazing – I’d love it if you shared some of your pics/stories with us! But don’t apologise for taking time for you, a little break is usually a good thing. Looking forward to you coming back refreshed and raring to go!
