Lifes a Beach #1 | Lifestyle

Hello beauties,

I think I need a holiday.. Life seems to be kicking my ass at the moment and I could really use a break. Just a place I can switch off and relax...

I wanted to do a little chinwag post as I've got lots going on and its all getting a bit much. Despite this being my blog and personal space to pretty much post what I want, I've got this uncanny nack for always wanting to be a people pleaser, and with that means living in this ideal world where I need to post several times a week with these amazing pictures and well written posts because nobody wants to read boring posts that go into detail and help enable a purchase (or save you pennies if my post can help you see its not for you!), But as much as I want to do it all, there just isn't enough hours in my day. I'm sure I'm not alone in the feeling but gosh is it horrible rutt to get out of.

I recently started slimming world, So I'm spending a lot of my time getting my head around the diet and being pro-active with making meals to take to work as I need to take breakfast, lunch and dinner due to the long shifts I do. It's hard, Getting up earlier to cook and getting home late and finding the energy to cook, But I've been doing it and had a great first week, I just know how easy it is to fall back into my old routine so A LOT of my time is going on my new diet and healthier lifestyle...

Work is also taking up a lot of my time. I'm sure I've said it loads of times but I work as a manager in a betting shop and I work 8.30 - 8pm, 5 days a week and it literally just drains me. Granted, It pays for most of my lovely clothes and makeup so its a bit of a catch 22 haha, But I can only do so much blog stuff at work, Things like filming and picture taking I need to do at home when I'm in " The Zone" haha yes I know you know what I mean.

Also, The last thing that's been taking up the majority of my time while I'm at home is the New Youtube series I started called Sample Sunday! It's a fun series that means I get to get on cam and video using a product and you get to see me in my environment being the general nutter I am, And I love that my banterfull, sarcastic side comes out and I've really felt comfortable in front of my camera talking to my whopping growing number of subscribers ( I LOVE YOU GUYS). But the past 2 weeks with life taking an unexpected turn, Not to mention juggling my 57.5 hour working week, I found myself not being able to record, edit and upload the videos and I tell you what, The pressure I've been putting on myself, worrying and stressing. It's just not good and I don't want to ever get to the point where I'm thinking about my blog or videos in a negative way. Talking about beauty, fashion, confidence are things that are personal to me and I'm passionate about them and if/when the day comes where I huff and puff about talking about a lipstick, Well, That will be the day I just take a step back and remind myself why I started blogging.

I've decided with all the things I'm jamming into my life, Somethings got to give and something needs to make room for more time taking photos for blog posts and content, And seeing as I cant quit my job, And I'm not quite ready to dump my bf or stop eating any time soon, I've decided to stop my Sample Sunday videos for the time being, In the hopes it gives me more time to focus on my posts. This isn't to say I wont be doing videos, Don't worry, Your crazy girl is very much still doing them. I just don't have alot of free time at the moment so I want to focus it all on my blog posts.

So seeing as I'm focusing on my blog posts, Here's where YOU have a say in what you'd like to see more of..

  1. You take care of yourself ! your posts are always good and a nice description can be as good or even better than a video. As you said (in) your blog is quite personal and what we like is to feel like we are all friends ( sounds well cheesy but FACT), and as we are good friends we are supportive. So focus on yourself and we know that you will not be able to live without a cute post anyways ;)

    1. Mariette, Thank you so much for your comment. Deffo think doing videos at the moment are just the icing on the cake in terms of having no time. If i felt busy before I dont know how I thought I'd be able to juggle that aswell. Just take a step back and go back to basics - Posting beauty and fashion.

      Thank you again for commenting <3 x

  2. You need some Lucie time! Love you xx

    1. Or some Nicole time <3 lol I love you too! xxxx
