WHERE HAVE I BEEN ?



Wow, this feels strange, stranger than I thought. 

I've been out of the blogging world for about 3 months now and what a long but oh so quick 3 months it has been. What have I been doing ?! In all honesty, working. I found it extremely difficult to balance work and my blog as well as having a social life and it all got on top of me I just threw in the towel. I really wasn't sure I would ever blog again. 

I didn't use Twitter or Instagram throughout either as it would make me super frustrated and at times jealous of all the other bloggers having this wonderful work life balance being able to do it all, and at one point I did do it all but I burnt myself out to the point i had zero passion for it. Now I know not everyone has the 'real' work life balance and they struggle just as much as I did but seeing everything looking perfect just made me feel how much of a failure I had become at my blog.

Truthfully, I miss it. I miss the community, I miss interacting with other bloggers but most importantly I miss being creative and sharing my latest beauty finds or my latest baking recipes. 

I AM BACK! 

I'm not going to put any pressure on myself at the moment but just enjoy it again and gradually work a new routine back in to my life. 

I would love to know in the comments below if you have any struggles and how you overcome them?

  1. Glad you are back, and you are not a failure! It can be a huge struggle to balance work and blogging but it should be fun and not a chore! I hope that you can enjoy your blog without putting pressure on yourself. I bet there are loads of other people out there feeling the same way with juggling everything!

  3. So glad your back. Honestly your not a failure, I've taken many of breaks, sometimes you need to step back to see what it is you want. Can't wait to see what's to come but don't put pressure on yourself.
