the last few weeks


Its been a while hasn't it fellow bloggers, if i am totally 100% honest with you, I haven't really felt all that cut out to be a blogger these last few weeks. Its nothing I can fully pin point, I think like everything else in life we can only follow one path for so long. This isn't me saying I am never going to blog again, I have just become stagnant with the direction I am heading in, it would be lovely to magic something out of the air, but I have been doing this a long time and its really not that easy.  So we will see I guess... 

So since I have been away this is what I have been up to...

- Sunday I turned 25, probably the first time ever I have been scared of growing old.
- Visited my uni friends in Bristol, ( I didn't go to bristol uni just a lot of my friends live there)
- I went camping in Kent 
- Visited the seaside
- Took a little family trip to military odyssey i only go for the vintage clothes. 
- Took my first large illustration deal
- Drew a ton on new tattoo men and women.
- Re-vamped my little etsy store
- BIG NEWS got selected for Renegade London craft fair in Novemeber.
- chopped my fringe super short
- started my tattoo portfolio in the hope of finding a tattoo apprenticeship 
- Finally got over the person that has been in my life for 8 years ( that wasn't easy or fun)
- been scarily poorly thinking I had a life threatening illness I was vomiting everyday for 3 weeks was pretty terrifying, things are being sorted thank heavens.
-  lost nearly a stone an a half due to the above issue. 
- Teaching summer schools
and tomorrow i will be going to see Plan B in concert courtesy of O2 which is rather exciting! So I feel we are all up to date, the old me probably would of blogged all that but being so ill I just felt like hiding away I hope you can all understand that. I hope your last two weeks have been filled with more ups then downs.

  3. Glad you are feeling a bit better sweet. I think everyone feels that way about blogging at some point, while I'd be sad if I didn't see any more of your lovely posts I think the most important thing is to stay true to yourself - don't force yourself to do something just because you feel you have to for others. Hope you had a lovely birthday and good luck with all the various crafty things - especially finding a tattoo internship!xx

  5. Oh babygurrrrl, I am so glad that you're on the mend. Or you know. I have no words at this hour of day ;) I've felt a little similar towards blogging: I adore blogging but think I need to rethink my direction and get back on track with my own blog rather than getting swept away in the abyss. Does this even make sense?! Hope you had uno fabulosa birthday <3

  11. Happy belated birthday. I think we all go through these phases with blogging sometimes, and it's ok to feel like that. It should be a hobby not a chore :)

  12. This makes me feel so much better. It is always nice to know that fellow bloggers are human too and also like to hide away every once in awhile. That said, it sucks you are under the weather and hope you are fully recovered by now! Your photo does not give away you have been feeling rough, you look great!

  13. This is a very lovely post :) - I get writers block a lot of the time, and don't enjoy writing when i'm not in the best of moods.

    Sounds like you had a lovely past few weeks though, minus the illness.
