Hello lovely people and welcome back to my blog!
In case anyone was wondering, no I didn’t die, I just needed a break.
I took some time off over Christmas just so I could focus on myself, hang out with my family and friends and just enjoy myself over the Christmas period – which I did.
I don’t feel guilty for taking time off but I did miss writing posts every week; I highly recommend taking a break once in a while and just focus on you.
It’s currently the 4th of January, 2018 – how crazy is that? Also thank gosh 2017 is over. I’m not going to talk details but 2017 has mentally been the toughest year of my life; from breakups to really bad mental health issues, it’s something I won’t be repeating again this year. 2017 had it’s great moments though, I started my blog (which turns 1 in a few days how exciting), I got closer with my friends and family, I have people in my life who I actually couldn’t live without. If you told me at the start of 2017 that everything would be completely different towards the end, I’d laugh. Towards the end of the year I really got my shit together and focused on me. I have people in my life who love me so much and really motivate me to be a better person.
Now 2018, do I have some goals for you. This is the year to smash out goals and be the best person you can be. I’m not expecting to land a job with Vogue by the end of the year (but wow that would be so amazing, but so not realistic!). This year I’m focusing on MYSELF for MYSELF and you all should as well. I’m going to be selfish, but in a good way of course, I’m going to spend more time with the people I love and also do everything I possibly can career wise.
This year I’m going to be more career driven and focused, I’m going to get more experience and learn so much more about the industry. I also have so many amazing things I want to do for this blog.
This year give yourself realistic goals, be selfish, have fun, be you. Don’t let another 2017 happen because we all know that was horrible. Wake up every morning and find something you’re grateful for, don’t beat yourself up or let others get you down.
Next week all my posts will be back to normal and fashion related. I thought I’d get a bit real with you all and just share my thoughts. Get ready for a banging year!
