Happy New Year....I'm back kinda.

Happy New Year!!!
So I know it's definitely long time no see but in all honesty I totally wasn't feeling the whole blogging thing to much. 

When I first started blogging, I really enjoyed the whole process of blogging and the community that surrounds it. Although it was relatively large, the community back then was close and you knew pretty much everyone.
Nowadays (that makes me sound old), well nowadays there are A LOT of bloggers out there and I feel one of the oldest ones out there. With more people blogging there is more competition for readers and followers and the whole thing just made me feel a bit inferior, that my blog posts were terrible and not worth reading and made me feel like it was not worth blogging.

It is hard once you are in that frame of mind to get back out of it and I still don't think I'm fully better (I'm still not happy with posts that I write, I've deleted so many that I have planned out) but there is a part of me that has missed the blog a little.
As we are into a new year now, I've decided to come back to blogging in a small way as a little test. I'm not going to put myself on any kind of schedule because when I forced myself into a three post a week schedule I started to hate the whole process and that made my whole experience very unfun.

Instead I propose this, every Sunday I will come to you all with a post. It might be a review, it might be a catch up, it might be even a few pictures from somewhere that I have been that week (I'm kind of into taking pictures nowadays, don't you know) and we'll see how it goes.
Also remember that as well as this blog I am also on YouTube with my "main channel" The Love of All Things Beauty  and my "vlog channel" Square Peg Round Hole. These two collectively take up a lot of my time but I love doing it so it's totally worth it. Please pop by if you haven't already because I'm really proud of everything I do over there.

In conclusion, as I've rambled a lot in this post, I'm coming back and I'll be back every Sunday...get excited.

  2. Your eyeshadow looks amazing in these photos! We seem to have experienced very similar feelings about blogging - I barely posted from Sep to Dec last year but I did miss it. I have the same plan as you now with blogging again but to no strict schedule xx
