Hello Lovelies!
Long time no speak, but it seems like I say this far too much lately. After treating myself to a lovely pampering bath, I thought I would take to the blog to reflect as I haven't had a good old chat on here in such a long time. There is no doubt that I still love my blog, but I struggle to blog in the same way as I used to because of how it has all changed. I champion the opportunities blogging has given people (including myself) but I miss how relatable blogging used to be, almost like your favourite cosy blanket, no pressure just a safe and comfortable place you could call your own. 

I think there is also an element of me that has changed, which is also making it increasingly harder to find my stride again. In recent years I've had to quickly adapt to out of the ordinary situations and on a day to day basis I work within a corporate sales and marketing environment, which is tough! As a result I feel that I've hardened up myself, which is of course good and bad. When I first started blogging I was really happy go lucky and a lot more naive. Now I'm far more opinionated and likely to speak out, which is good in the sense that I'm much better at sticking up for myself and not letting anyone take the you know what, but then I feel like I miss the innocence and naivety which allowed me to blog with so much positivity and love. I also worry that people who liked that person wont like the 'new' me as much, not that I'm a completely changed person... I just feel a little paranoid about my tone and how I come across on my blog these days. 

A quote that has really resonated with me this year is this one by Dita Von Teese

“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be somebody who hates peaches.”

My god, I've lost some sleep worrying about what people think of me and wondering why that person has an issue or doesn't appear to like me? I'm by no means perfect, but I'm not a bad person and I refuse to let anyone get me down in that way anymore. I genuinely think if someone has a deep rooted issue then there is sadly nothing you can do about it. 

On a more positive note I was lucky to receive the camera of my dreams from my fiance this Christmas. the beautiful new and shiny Olympus Pen EPL8, which instantly ignited my desire to finally start vlogging. I went through a stage of 'snap vlogging' which I really enjoyed and I managed to get a small audience who genuinely wanted to see more! I then started to gain some weight due to stress, which made me even more camera shy. However, I'm finally starting to get some confidence back, which I hope will build day by day and will be able to help me power through my 2018 goals. 

Due to being a total workaholic, I always have little projects on the go even when I'm not in work. I recently started Invest In Rest (DreamBoxUK) which is an exciting wellness initiative with a modern day twist, which will combine my love for beauty and skincare along with my love of wellbeing and mindfulness, so watch this space! 

I'm not quite sure what 2018 has in store in regards to my blog, but I'm looking forward to figuring it out! You might even see a few vlogs in the near future.
