Still Alive

I've been a rubbish blogger as of late. I can't stand seeing my little site looking so neglected, but finding time to sit down and post has been a bit of a challenge recently. I've been working more than usual and felt ill all last week, so any time off I've had has been spent zoning out in front of the TV. It's not that I'm feeling uninspired - I still enjoy blogging more than ever - I'm just worried about my content not being interesting enough. I've been trying to save up so I haven't been able to splurge on products to review, I've not been doing much in the day due to work and when I return home from my shifts the lighting is usually too poor to take pictures in. I'm very jealous of those bloggers who manage to produce beautiful photographs and imaginative posts on a regular basis while maintaining a full-time job and a social life - how do you do it?!

I'm going to be without internet for a little while as of tomorrow night, which means posting may continue to be slow for the next few weeks. Although I'm obviously going to miss it, part of me thinks it's a blessing in disguise. I've ordered a stack of books to keep me busy for when I'm not at work, and I'll be spending some quality time with my box sets. I'm looking forward to switching off for a bit, getting a good nights sleep rather than trawling Pinterest till the early hours, and seeing my boyfriend more. I'm hoping I'll return feeling refreshed and much more motivated!

I'll still be reading your comments, catching up on my favourite blogs and posting whenever I have the chance. Just bare with me - I'm not going anywhere for long, promise! :) x


  1. Enjoy your little time off and don't feel guilty about it. It is indeed not easy to manage all those things. I have plenty time for blogging at the moment cos i'm currently without a job which isn't (hopefully) going to last for a long time. Hope you return motivated :-)

  2. Always have a good time off and you will come back refreshed and ready to start blogging again! I see your another UK blogger yeahy :)

  3. I read so many posts like this and completely understand how tricky it is to keep the balance! Don't worry little one, take a break and you'll soon be feeling inspired again :) <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  4. I'm also jealous of those people. My blog goes through periods of having a rush of posts, and then goes completely silent for weeks... really need to get a calender like I've seen some people doing.

    Hope you're feeling a little better today.


  5. Your blog is so beautiful, interesting and sweet.. I love reading it! never feel guilty or pressured to produce content. Although, it's easier said than done! I feel guilty all the time too and constantly feel down when I can't blog as much as I would like. I don't have a balance yet, but I am hoping it will come one day. Some weeks I have a great week on the blog, but a rubbish social/family life. I will be grumpy and short fused with my family because I'm over-worked and over-tired. Then other weeks i'll spend so much quality time with my family/friends and the blog will suffer. How to find a balance!! I think let's just remember that we are all special and interesting, and blog as often as we can. Without the guilt!! xxxx
