I did a little 'Life Update' video which went live on my YouTube channel yesterday so I thought I would write a little post to go along side it and talk about some of the points I missed out in the video. I sort of see this video as a little stepping stone back into the blogging world to give you a little bit of background as to where I have been and my plans for the future. For some reason I sort of like to 'set the scene' if you will for my readers, after all this is a fashion and lifestyle blog!
Now I know I did a little 'Life Update' blog post not so long ago but 1. I didn't do a video to go with it so it was all pretty much kept under wraps still and 2. A lot has changed since that blog post believe it or not! So basically if you have watched the video before reading this you will get a jist on what has been going on in my life and how it has affected my motivation to blog and create videos etc. Some of the things I forgot to mention were just small things like not all New Look workers work night shifts. As far as I am aware at the moment it is just New Look Southampton Visual Merchandising team. We work 2 nights and 3 days a week so it is very tiring and stressful and it's hard for your body to keep up with the late finishes and early starts, plus we rarely get out on time which is also very annoying!! Haha! And another point I didn't really mention was the fact that I am looking for a new job because Monday-Friday day shifts would be much better suited to support my family with helping around the house etc whilst keeping a happy medium of spending time with them. Lastly, I would never usually leave a job before finding another one first but I was just so unhappy, completely not myself and I was unhealthy and lost some weight, probably due to the early days of having braces alongside the stress, but overall I just wasn't myself and I hated it.
I think that is possibly everything I didn't cover. This is in no way a cry for attention or sympathy, I have amazing friends and a loving boyfriend who have supported me through out and kept me going, not to mention the most positive, inspiring and brave family that I am so proud to be a part of :)
So here's to more blog posts and video's and getting back on that blogging band-wagon! Oh and a nudge in the right direction for my future business too :)
