Hey Blog fam! I hope you’ve all had an amazing holiday/festive season celebrating with your friends, family and loved ones. This is usually one of my favourite times of the year – but this past December has been one of the most intense months I’ve probably ever had, and I need a break!
Over the last month so much has happened that it’s really hard to simplify it into a blog post – but here goes.
I ended my five year relationship in the first week of December. A lot of my regular readers will know that I have been living with my (now ex, it’s still weird to write) partner for 4.5 years and we were engaged for nearly three. It definitely wasn’t an easy decision to make but it was the right one for me and my future health and happiness. I have absolutely no animosity or hatred towards him whatsoever – but it was time for me.
So that meant that I had to move! So I’ve moved from our two bedroom home back into my old room at my Dad’s house. Moving all of my belongings (including my stupidly large beauty stash) into one small room was a challenge – but I couldn’t be more grateful for having my father love and support and believe in me – and to accept me back with open arms.
That happened in the first week – and in the second week of December I started a brand new, full-time job. I obviously haven’t been there for very long yet but I absolutely love it. I’m working in PR and Communications which is exactly what I studied at university. I feel so at home with where I work and am slowly grasping all of the new information I’m learning and skills I’m developing.
Through most of it you’ll have seen my Instagram stories – and me missing my beautiful cat, Gypsy. I am so so happy to report that I now have her here with me – but the weeks where I didn’t have her were some of the hardest. I am very thankful for my ex and for how much he loves her and looked after her – but finally everything was worked out here and I have my baby back! She’s still not perfectly settled in but she is definitely getting there!
That really catches you up on everything – the shortened version anyway! This was all happening throughout Blogmas and I really haven’t been as active as I should have been with that, especially on social media. But here we are at the end of it all – and I’m tired. I need a bit of a break.
For so long now I’ve been posting content three times a week and I absolutely love it – but I need some me time for a while. I’m not sure how long this break will last and I’m sure I’ll still have a post up here and there on the site and I’ll be sharing makeup bits and PR packages on Instagram but I need some downtime to get myself fully adjusted and settled into everything new that’s happening in my life.
I’m not going forever – and knowing me I’ll probably be creating content in the background to schedule for when I’m back, but it’s time for some R&R and to plan for the future!
Thanks in advance xx
