- Life Update: Attempting to 'Adult'...

Apart from during holidays or festive periods I've never taken a break away from my posting every other day schedule, and to be honest, I never thought I would.

Life is so hectic right now. I landed a new job last Friday and began yesterday. It's crazy but exciting, and I can't wait to get stuck in. Me and Rob are also now flat hunting, which is so fast paced in London. We are literally going to have to pounce.

Don't get me wrong, I haven't gone off blogging whatsoever. I just don't have the time for it at the moment with everything else going on. Some choose blogging as a career, some choose it as a hobby. I'm with the latter and see my blog as a creative space and a fun little outlet. I'm adjusting to new people, a new routine and spending evenings viewing properties. Plus on top of all of that, I have a horrendous cold. Colds are weird. When someone complains about having one, I tend to think 'meh'. And then I get one and feel like I've face planted into a brick wall. Multiple times.

Not only do I miss creating content, but I miss reading other blogs. Literally, I now feel so behind with my favourites. I'm not sure what my schedule will be in the future, but I know that for some evenings I'll want to spend them interacting with fellow bloggers, rather than scheduling content. Because what's the use of content without engagement, right? Plus, <3blogging friends<3!

So what I'm basically saying is, please bear with me. Sorry if this post has seemed a little rushed, I'm currently typing manicly during my commute.

In true Terminator style... I'll be back ;)



  1. Awh Karen, I am in the exact same boat! I've been so busy I barely have time to blog and it makes me sad. I feel like I'm not as passionate anymore :( I'm so excited for you though!! Hope you're enjoying your new job - it sounds amazing - and that you find a cute little flat soon. : ) xxx

  4. Congrats on the new job Mrs and fingers crossed the flat hunting goes well! I totally feel ya with blogging needing to take a back seat sometimes - there's only so far you can realistically push yourself and sometimes, life just gets in the way. I find when I put pressure on myself to post, it reflects in my writing. Take as long as you need to get yourself organised, (and feeling better!) Much love xxx
