A Lil’ Life Update

A Lil’ Life Update

It’s been a while lovely ones, but I’m so pleased to say after a few hectic weeks I’M BACK (woohoo) and I’m feeling more inspired than ever. It feels so good to be back sat writing a post again for what feels like blooming forever, even though it was only a few weeks ago. Still, taking any time off blogging is very rare for me and is something I always look forward to doing each week so to have no new posts for a while was very strange and I can only start with apologising for my absence lately. Since cooking up some choc chip cookies in my previous post, a few things have happened which made me realise that taking a lil’ bit of time off would be the best solution. I’m dying to get back into it now I’m refreshed and get my camera out again to create hopefully better content and put all the effort in I can more than before. Taking some time off to make time for school work with it being the start of my final school year (gulp) and to generally sit back and give myself a bit off me time has reminded me how lucky I am to have such an amazing community of followers (you guys) and how much you have enabled my blog and our community to grow from where I am now to where I was a good year and a half ago when I was a total newbie to blogging. It’s really made me realise how much I missed blogging and how I want to continue to improve and pursue it.

I know this is turning into a soppy spiel but I just wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you for always showing your support and for continuing to follow my blogging journey from the people who have been following me from the start on my old blog, to people who have just followed today.

I know I’m guilty of it sometimes, when all your concerned about is what highlighter is trending and although I love those sorts of things, there are more important things in the world like catching up with family and friends and reflecting on things which is what I’ve been doing lately.

Also, earlier on this year I was diagnosed with Scoliosis, a condition of the spine which I have mentioned on my blog quite a few months back. Without going into too much detail and boring you with my life story over the past few weeks, it’s been quite the rollercoaster from toing and froing from clinics, getting x-rays here, seeing consultants there, the list goes on. As a result I have to wear a back brace for 18 hours a day over the next few years which isn’t going to be easy but slowly but surely I’m getting there and things are looking up. Besides from struggling to find clothes that will now fit me with my brace and all that jazz, over the next few weeks I’ll be gradually getting used to it more on a more positive note which is another reason for my absence. Never the less, I’m SO excited to be back to blogging now things are less hectic!

I hope you’re all well & are having a fab day and I will see you very soon with a new (slightly longer) post. Let me know what you’ve all been up to!

    I’ve literally been feeling the exact same lately lovely, but it’s so good to see you back and cannot wait for the blog posts! I’m so sorry to hear about your scoliosis, you sound like you are coping so well with it lovely, I haven’t heard you say one bad word about it- you’re doing so well! If you ever need anyone to chat to about it or anything else, hit me up gal. Loved reading as always xxx

      Aww thank you so much as always Tash and for understanding, it means a lot!! Awh that’s so so kind of you! I really appreciate your support! It’s hard at the moment but I’ll gradually get used to it. Aw thank you, I will lovely! The same to you! I’m so pleased you enjoyed the post. Hope you are well 💗

    It’s good to see you back lovely. We all need a break sometimes or we just end up having time away without realising how long for. Must be difficult for you wearing the brace but if it’s helping then that’s something I suppose.

    I need to get round to baking the cookies!

      Aww thank you Samantha! Yes, definitely. Yes, it’s difficult at the moment but I’m gradually getting used to it and I know it’s the only option to help my spine so it’s important I wear it and that it’s doing some good. Aw yes, make sure to let me know if you do! 💗

    Girl I completely understand needing a break when school gets hectic as it can all be a little much, don’t ever feel you have to apologise for taking some time off to catch up on life ♥ I’m so sorry to hear that you have scoliosis, I have slight scoliosis and even then it sucks but you’ll get through having the brace and at least you’re putting your physical health first. I never had a brace so I can’t speak from personal experience but a friend of mine had to have one for quite a while and at first its annoying but after a while she got used to it and now she doesn’t need it so soon enough you’ll not need it anymore. Wishing you all the best xx

      Aww thank you so much for understanding Sophie, that’s so kind! Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear you have scoliosis too! It’s so nice to hear of some one else with the same condition as it’s so rare here in Britain and there is hardly any support with there not being many options seen as it’s not a common issue. I really feel it needs to be made more aware. Yes, it seems hard now but it will get easier and I’ll get used to it. That’s great news about your friend, I’m so pleased to hear she managed with it! That’s definitely given me confidence in hearing that she got used to it. Yes that’s what I keep telling myself that before I know it, I won’t need it anymore. Aw thank you Hun, it means a lot. Hope you are well 💗

    It’s healthy to have a break sometimes especially if a lot is going on otherwise! It sounds like you’ve had a busy time but I’m glad you’re back! Can’t wait for your next post already 🙂

    Life really does sound very hectic! I’m sure that you’ll be able to still find cute clothes while wearing your brace. Also, you can take as much time as you need because a little break is sometimes well needed. I can’t wait to see your future posts (a slightly longer post is great because I love reading your posts!). My life has been going ok recently. Hope your having a fab day x
