There's a large elephant in the room, concerning my absence (and the layout change). To say the last six months has been crazy is a slight understatment. I graduated from university in June and I was fortunate enough to land myself a 3-month job trial at a Beauty PR agency, which begun on July 1st. Whilst I was on my trial, I kept my part time job so I was working 6 day weeks, and needless to say, that by the time Sunday came round, I really couldn't face taking blog photos, editing them, uploading and then writing a post - I just wanted to do nothing! Some call it lazy, but I needed some me time on those Sunday's.
I have now been with AD Publicity for five months, which means I got the job and I couldn't be happier! I've now left my part time job and have really enjoyed having my weekends back (it's been five years since I last had Saturdays to myself). During the past six weeks, I've had more time to read and enjoy blogs again and realised how much I missed it myself. I wanted to start fresh, with a new layout, so enlisted the very talented Megan, who illustrated my last header for me. I wanted a more beauty orientated header as I very rarely talk about anything else on this blog. I think it sums the blog and myself up perfectly - NARS is my favourite brand for make up in general, Origins is my go to skincare brand and Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish still reigns supreme in my stash as the best cleanser I've ever used.
There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon, both at work and in general. Christmas is coming and if you follow me on Twitter I am literally wishing my life away just for it to be December - such a child at heart! I want to start blogging more frequently so will try to get up at least two or three posts a week, beauty is still my passion and I'm lucky enough to be able to work with it everyday now too!
How have you been?
