Where have I been?

What have I been up to in the last six months?

For the last six months, I have been meaning to update this blog and create more content for it. However, like always life has gotten in the way and my blog took a backseat to everything else that was happening in my life. I really struggled to find a balance of being able to work, spend time with family and friends as well as writing content for here. As you will probably know, blogging is not an easy commitment; multiple hours are spent trying to create the perfect blog post from taking the perfect photos to sitting down and writing everything that I want to say in one fairly short post. Therefore, I found it easier to just let this slow down and focus on my career and my personal life for a little while. However, I am now in a place where I want to start creating more content for this blog but not have to worry about sticking to a weekly schedule. Instead I want to post once or twice a week (but I will mention that more later in the post).

So where have I been for the last six months ...

... Well, my life has definitely changed a lot in the last six months. I graduated from university with a postgraduate degree, I got a new job and started a relationship earlier this year. Therefore, a lot of new changes have come into my life and have been taking up a lot of my time. I am in such a happy and positive place and really feel like everything is coming together for me. I started this blog when I was first at University as a hobby to help me feel less stressed about my studies. While at university this time, I knew that I needed to focus on my studies and concentrate on that and therefore I decided to stop blogging for a while. I did write a couple of posts every so often but it was difficult trying to write them while writing 5,000 word essays. Also, I have been spending a lot of time with my boyfriend and that has taken up a lot of time when I would usually have been writing blog posts. I have been so lucky to have some amazing trips this year with my boyfriend; visiting the Shard, going to Brighton, spending days in London and going to Croatia this summer. Plus I know there will be more amazing trips out in the future that I want to document on here too.

Therefore, I feel like I am now in a much happier place to start my blog up once again. I have lots of content that I want to include on this blog and am feeling more determined to make this blog something that I can look back on in the future and to create a space that is fashion, lifestyle and beauty-related. I am no longer going to set myself a schedule of uploading three times a week as I know this is something that will be difficult to achieve. However, my goal is to upload at least once a week on a SUNDAY! I will sometimes upload more that this and I will make sure to update on my Twitter and Instagram when I am posting a new blog post so make sure you are following me there. My Instagram is @lovevickilouise and my Twitter is @lovevickilouise.

I have created a new Instagram account so that everything can be under the brand of Love Vicki Louise and my old Instagram is now a private Instagram that close friends and family can see.

Make sure to check out my blog this Sunday with a new review on a palette that I have just purchased.
