Downtime

Life, Reality

When you spend the majority of your free time writing a blog I don’t think those who don’t write blogs realise just how much work goes into it. Downtime from the blog life really is something that is necessary as a temporary measure for those moments when you just are a little exhausted – it’s your blog, do as you wish. From the actual written content to the photos that actually make it to a post it is quite an extensive activity, despite being mostly computer based.

Over the years I have gone from only writing book reviews to beauty products and general life chit chat. It has been an outlet when I am happy, sad and even a little stressed. The support of other bloggers out there really is astounding and there is always someone around the world that is up and about. Now I am not going to go on about the wonder that is the internet so sit tight.

One thing that I have noticed more so since blogging about lifestyle bits is the increased need to document what is going on around me most of the time. This type of documentation can really encroach on day to day living and this is by no means a moan but more of a realization that I need to take a step back. It is all shits and giggles when you are out there and doing something when you go back and blog about it later. However, recently I have found myself trying to plan things so I have an opportunity to blog.

Fed Up, Face Down, Life

Currently outside of my blog world I am working my way through the Intensive Care Course and let me tell you now if any of your have done it (HATS OFF), working full time alongside studying really is a task in itself. I have never been very academic and this really is testing me to my limits. If I’m honest I don’t think I have ever been more stressed than I am right now.

With regards to having some down time it is not something that I want right now as despite being stressed the outlet of my blog is something that has really helped. In a way by writing content for this space it gets my brain into gear for the more in depth studying that I need to do for my course. But it has come to the point where I really do need to have maximum concentration on my course bits. Things may seem a little scarce around here and on my social media accounts but now you know why. Don’t give up on me just yet as when the course is done I have a whole host of ideas for my lovely space. I am incredibly grateful for the support of the blogging community and will most definitely be back as soon as possible and hopefully with a new enthusiasm for it all.

If there is anything in particular that you would like to see more of on this blog please do just say.

  • ((((hugs))))) I really do agree that anyone who doesn’t blog, has no idea how much time it takes. It is why a lot of bloggers hope to make it a full time business…because it IS a full time business.

    People have asked me why I stopped blogging as much. But for the last two years my life was in chaos, my books (that I blog quotes and information from) were in storage and even though I might have had the time and my computer…I did not have the energy. At one point the only time I had outfits on the blog I was getting dressed just to take photos only to go straight back to my pjs.

    The fact that you are doing it while working full time and studying full time…well my hat goes off to you. I haven’t even gotten to blogging about our time in London & Paris and you had it done almost straight away!

    Good luck with the studies lovely. I wish so badly that you guys lived around the corner from me. Meeting you was like finding “my people”. Going back to the other side of the world has sucked…especially as it is also a billion degrees here. Miss you!

    • Aww hun, missing you lots too. You really do have to come back soon 🙂 xx

      You know one of the reasons why I don’t really do outfit of the day posts is because the times that I get dressed up to go out I want to go out, not stand there and take pictures of myself for everyone else to see. I dress up to go out so I can go and enjoy myself and I am most definitely not getting dolled up to go to the supermarket just so I can take a picture. My OOTD posts if done daily would most likely be hoodies, baseball caps, converse, jeans and whatever tshirt is at the top of the pile! Not very girly right?!

      At this current moment in time work, study and blogging really is kicking my ass, I have had a few weeks off but have never felt so stressed whilst off. A few more days of and I am literally going to be just doing me!

      I can’t wait to read your view on London to Paris and vica versa! It is going to be wonderful. Come and see ‘your people’ very soon please and until then keep in contact pleassssseeee!!! xx
