An Unintentional Break

Okay so... I'm very aware I've been absent on this little space on the internet lately. One of my aims for 2015 was to keep on top of my blog and make sure I uploaded content almost every day. Whilst that started off well it seems to have dipped dramatically of late and I can only apologise for that. I especially think after five years of sharing content with you guys on here I should have got the hang of being consistent, but alas, sometimes I just find it incredibly hard to blog.

Lately I've been going through a bit of a rough patch... I don't really want to go into it too much because I feel like this blog post will turn into a pity party and I don't want that. I've just been struggling to feel motivated, not just to blog but to do anything, and I know depression has a lot to do with it. I hate to admit weakness but I guess I have to put my hands up and say right now, I'm struggling a bit.

I have every intention of making my blog better, of writing my socks off and trying as many products as possible, thinking up as many posts as possible to make my blog the best it can be... but sometimes, I find it SO hard to do. I don't want to put out half-hearted blog posts all the time because I know it'll only make me feel worse, but the radio silence on here doesn't make me feel much better either.

I just wanted to put out a blog post to let you all know I'm still here, and I have every intention of getting back into the swing of things where my blog is concerned. It probably won't happen over night, but I want to get back to being happy... not just with my blog, but with everything else too.


  1. I totally get what you are saying hun. I write a blog too and I too have been absent from writing blog posts. Sometimes It is hard to find the motivation but with time, we will get through this. I do agree that things won't happen overnight but I have faith that you will overcome this obstacle and write bigger and better blog posts and I for one will carry on reading what ever you produce on this fantastic blog. X

  2. While this may be your first post in March I can see that you've already done 27 posts this year. In contrast I have only managed one post so far this year on my blog at and no video uploads in over 1o months on my YouTube channel at
    I've noticed quite a few bloggers writing of feeling down or depressed lately for a variety of reasons, but many times they don't share what those are.
    It amazes me that some bloggers write as many posts as they do. When I get depressed or things don't look so good I try to take one day at a time and just enjoy whatever I can out of it - to look for the beauty in life while you're getting through your rough patch.
    Speaking of beauty, you look gorgeous in the photo in this post. Your hair, eyelashes, eyeliner and lipstick all look beautiful. The blouse you're wearing in the photo is beautiful too. I hope things go better for you and that you manage to find more happiness in each day. You're young and beautiful. I love your blog but hope you don't stress about it. Whenever you get around to doing another post I'm sure I'll love seeing it. Hopefully I can take my own advice and manage my second post of the year either this month or next :)

  3. Being able to say you are struggling is not showing weakness, it is showing strength. I've been going through the same thing recently and intend to take a break too, hopefully coming back recharged and with a fresh direction for my blog and life in general. I've found getting back to things I used to enjoy (reading and painting) has helped an awful lot, I hope you find something that helps you too x

  4. Hope you feel better soon lobe. I've been struggling as of late myself. Depression is a hard thing to deal with ya times. Sending you hugs xxx xx

  5. This blog will never turn into a pity party !

    For the past 5 years I have suffered from anxiety/depression and getting motivated is one of the difficult parts. I thought you should know your blog was one of the things that helped get me motivated. Your fashion/style/make up posts and reviews motivated and inspired me to leave the house (something i found very difficult) and start enjoying clothes/make up shopping again :-) which I am very grateful for though my bank account isn't lol.

    I hope you feel better soon and it will get easier :-) xx

  6. Interesting post! Love your style of writing and your pictures!
    Wish you good luck with your blog! And will be happy to see you in my!

    Best wishes,
    Diana Cloudlet

  7. Sometimes the break brings out the best in you. Lord knows, I took a 3 year break and only weeks ago decided to start a fresh with a brand new blog and clean slate, the lot, and it felt FANTASTIC, so don't be too hard on yourself... Looking back, it might be the best decision you've ever made :)

  8. This might be a bit late but I hope you're feeling better. Sending biig hugs ...!
