Changing...

 Hellooo, remember me? Im that blogger who used to blog 3 times a week, regularly prancing around in pretty dresses? Ring a bell?
Well, i have been forcing myself to write this post for a couple of weeks now and it's just not been happening. Actually, blogging in general just hasn't been happening for me. I have felt like i have had absolutely no urge to blog whatsoever. I've also had no urge to don my unsual attire of dresses and peter pan collars either.  If i'm honest i don't quite know how i feel right now. So far 2013 has been so full of change that i feel myself changing in every aspect...

 So thats basically why there has been no regular blog posts from me, i feel like im still going through a transitional period and i'm yet to find out where my final destination will be.
But i'm happy. Like, seriously happy. I'm in a good place even if i don't know where that place is. I'm really loving our new home, work is good, and time with my son is just wonderful. I've been taking long baths, drinking glasses of wine and reading great books. Not only have i not blogged but i have also spent very little time online,and no endless surfing the virtual world. I've been very much unplugged and its been refreshing.

I considered walking away from this little blog i have worked so hard at for the past (nearly) 2 years, but i don't want to. I still love this blog and i love the blogging environment with such wonderful like minded positive strong ladies. I'm just still considering what to do next i guess.  

 Style wise, it has been unbelievably casual, again something i am very much enjoying. Lots of jeans, skinny and boyfriend type, and lots of pretty blouses or shirts. I feel like my style is changing and i'm saying good bye to lots of my old dresses ( another BIG sale will be up on Thursday with some other lovely ladies also doing some selling too.. stay tuned for that) and welcoming some pretty lacey blouses, denims and casual pieces. Maybe its because compared to last year, my whole life situation has changed. I wear a smart uniform for work now and then on my days off its with Neo mostly. Also having a uniform means i need a lot less clothes, and i find my self shopping a lot less.
Maybe it's that i'm 29 this year and life is a constant cycle of change... who knows. But i do want to continue seeing you guys and i do hope you will stick with me whilst i figure myself out.

So thats that. Enough about me, how the devil are you?

blouse: vintage
jeans: next

  1. DON'T LEEEEAAAAAVVVVEEEE!! - My initial reaction to this post. You're one of my fave blogs, and fave bloggy people, and I am more than sure we will all stick with you during the transition you're going through. I'm glad you're happy though, that's what's most important. :)
    I love your outfit btw, even when you go casual you look glam! Xo

  5. Love you and your blog lady but we all need time away from time to time and I think you and your blog benefit from that. I go through periods where blogging becomes s chore or I just don't feel like it. Then I take a step back... I always come back refreshed. I'm loving my blog just now but that can change any time. I'll be taking an enforced break soon when the baby arrives... Your blog and followers will still be here for you :) xxxx

  8. The blogging lull - absolutely happens. I've so been there, several times in fact. Do what feels good and do what feels right. I'm excited for all your changes and it sounds like you're moving in a wonderful direction. Happy for you! <3

    PS - thanks so much for visiting & following the new space. Means so much!

  9. Welcome back! I think we all go through phases with our blogs and understandably your year has been more up and down than most. Don't worry about taking a break - we'll all be here if/when you come back :) x

  10. Whew! I just breathed a big sigh of relief to know that you're not going to stop blogging..you had me scared there for a minute! I don't know what I'd do if I didn't get to see what you wore at least 3 times a week :) Maybe fly out to Wales to spy on you? Or perhaps convince you to skype with me...yeah, I guess that'd be a little less creepy and a lot less pricey!

    Anyway, I think we all need that little break from the internet and from blogging every once in a while. When I was away in November I had no internet access for almost two weeks, so I was forced not to blog or surf, and it was a break I didn't even know I needed.

    I'm so glad to hear you're happy and I'm loving this new direction that your clothes are going in! I'd love to scoop up all of your cast offs! What the heck is a UK14 in US size?!

    Love you, lady!
