A Little Life Update From A Very Distant Blogger

By  | 

I apologize for the v dramatic title but it’s true, I have been SO distant on my blog. It’s not because I don’t like her anymore, it’s because I have been SO busy in other work projects that my little hobby has been put on the back burner.

 

# Blogging Update

I’ve been stuck for a few months now with inspiration for my blog. I can talk all day long about tea, books, makeup, conspiracy theories, horror movies and everything in between but does anybody actually want to read about it? Sometimes I release an article and just feel I bore others with what I’m writing about and that just knocks my confidence and leaves me with zero motivation.

It’s not just that but I also feel like I can’t relate to a lot of bloggers in the industry, I have bloggers I read and enjoy reading but I do find it difficult to bring myself on the same level. I love this blog so much and writing what I want to write about has always been my main goal but I think we are just hitting a bit of a bumpy road.

 

# Health & Fitness

If you read my blog you will know I started a fitness journey back in July (read about how it all started here) when I saw myself piling on the pounds without a second thought. I had a sudden change inside of my brain (more like a crisis) and just went for it and now 3 months in I am loving it. I work out 6 days a week, I eat healthy 6 days of the week and for one day I consume so much bad food that I sometimes can’t move and it feels like Christmas for a brief moment. On a serious note, I am loving it and can’t see myself going back to my terrible ways just yet.

 

# Actual Life Update

Ugh. I am getting stressed just thinking about writing this bit and what I am about to say is the biggest first world problem but myself and my boyfriend are so stuck in a bind that every day we feel stressed about it. We want to move (desperately) but there are so many obstacles in the way that it feels like we are trying to get clean in a mud bath. I won’t go into too much detail because it’s boring and stressful to even read about but just know I am v stressed in my actual life.

Aside from the stresses of being an adult my life is going good, work is great, it’s my birthday month, Julia is still in bake-off and Halloween is on the horizon.

 

# Something I’ve discovered

OK, I didn’t know what to name this section but hear me out. I have discovered something absolutely life-changing, something to sip on when Great British Bake Off begins to start, something to sip on when you’re curled up and reading a book and that thing to sip on is ‘spiced chai latte‘.

Perhaps for you, that is so last year and perhaps everybody knows about this and I just didn’t but I bought it on a whim and I am ADDICTED. I hide it right at the back of the cupboard and if I open up the lid of the tin my boyfriend scutters from an unknown location and comes bounding down the hall like a dog who has just heard you open the treat box.

It’s bloody delicious and recommend it to you all.

Thank you for reading,
