Life: Time for Change

I haven’t sat down and just written for a while so I thought I’d give it a go. This blog has been almost 4 years in the making and somewhere along the way it’s lost it’s purpose. In all honesty it’s me that has changed, over the past 4 years I’ve lost the enthusiasm I had when I was a fresh-faced graduate; back then I loved writing and I loved make-up so a beauty blog seemed the perfect fit. I was also single and so I had a lot of time to dedicate to blogging – I loved my blog, I would spend every spare moment I had researching and testing and connecting with other bloggers.

But now; I’m 25 and I’ve been in a relationship for almost two years. I have lost the enthusiasm I used to have for the latest beauty launch or a new social media site. I am happier than I have ever been before, with exception to the university years, and don’t feel like I can write about make-up with as much passion as I used to. In fact, sometimes it feels a bit like a chore. I have more things going on in my life, and more responsibilities now that I’m getting older. 

As Lily says I think that beauty and fashion blogs have had their day. So I’m going to stop trying to force myself into being a successful beauty blog and just concentrate on sharing a part of me. It doesn't matter if no one reads it or comments as it will be a record of my mid-twenties. 

My life is about to go through a lot of changes (I hope!); buying a house with my boyfriend, teacher training and a bit of a healthier lifestyle – so I hope you will continue to join me on the way. Obviously I will still post about some beauty products as I do still use them and I will still be trying out new things on the quest to the holy grail.But I’m hoping not to have to force myself to keep up with everyone else.

It feels better to just let things out.

If there are any lifestyle type posts you would like me to do feel free to leave them in a comment below, I’m quite excited by the prospect of letting go of beauty blogging.

If you are after some excellent beauty blogs (that are consistent and very successful with the subject) I would definitely recommend:
The Sunday Girl – For all the latest launches
Amber’s Beauty Talk – For everything natural beauty & skincare
Sophie Rose Hearts – For fab reviews with beautiful pictures
