It's Been a Little Quiet Round Here Lately...

So it's been a little quiet here on the blog lately. I think the last time I posted was nearly a month ago (oops..) but I promise it's all for good reason!

At the moment I am in the throws of starting new hours (8am - 4pm. The 6am starts are hard to get used to!) at John Lewis as a Visual Merchandiser! And even though I love my job, the hours are taking their toll on me while I get used to them and I'm pretty much tired all the time. I'm also in the middle of looking for a new place to live as I will be moving out of my current place in June/July, so that's all a bit mad right now. Mix that in with just general life and personal stuff at the moment, there just hasn't been much time for my Blog!

I'm hoping that will soon change once I get sorted in my new place and everything has settled down. I'm hoping that I will be able to get out and actually do some Photography soon too as I really haven't done any in a long time. I'm starting to feel a little sad about it in all honesty. I am however, going to start taking my camera to work every so often so I can give you guys a glimpse into my working week, as I do some pretty creative stuff and no day is the same. It would be nice to share it with you all! I'm also going to an event next week all to do with Chocolate which I'm very much looking forward to and I will definitely be letting you guys know about that!

That's about all I have to say about now. Sorry that this is a little short but I will be back with lots of content soon!

Pinspiration #1

These are just some things I've been looking at lately. I've never really been into Pinterest until recently and it really is a stunning place to find so much inspiration. I've become quite addicted to browsing through all the things it has to offer.
As you can see, my Pinspiration is somewhat of a mixed bag. I love all these images for so many different reasons though. They just, catch me somehow <3 I mainly look at all these images to get inspiration for my Photography. After a long while of wondering what type of Photography I really want to start producing, I think I've got quite a love affair for vintage looking images. So I reckon over the next few months (budget provided) I might start investing in some older lenses and work on my editing skills to produce the look!

Is Pinterest something you turn to for inspiration?

Getting Organised

Book by Dana Fox which you can buy here. It's amazing.

My life is a bit of a mess at the moment, in more ways than one, so I figured it was time to get some organisation back into my life (she says)

Now that Spring is here and everything is starting to brighten up and people are starting to get a bit more of a pep in their step, it seemed like the perfect time! This means finally sorting out my blog and actually posting more content, especially Photography as it's why I started this blog in the first place. I want to start eating better again, eating proper meals with good stuff in them! And not sleeping just 4 hours a night before my 10 hour work shifts. My skin, mood and health are suffering from it all! Sorting out my bedroom is also another, which is slowly becoming more and more difficult to navigate and actually find anything. It drives me mad!

And finally, myself. I've actually started writing in a Diary more in order to help my emotions, thoughts and feelings go somewhere else other than swim around my head day and night. It's enough to make anyone go mad and I feel it's doing that to me. Being able to read them back also lets me know just how far I've come, which I might not have realised sooner otherwise. It's funny really, as there's this idea that when in your early Twenties, everything is fun, free, exciting and carefree. Although that may well be true, as many of us have little to no real commitments and can essentially do as we please, there are a whole lot of stresses that come with it too! Like saving money, keeping on top of work loads, relationships - both love and friendships, and all while trying to constantly figure out how to be a fully functioning adult. No wonder I'm shattered all the time.

None of these things will be done over night by any means, I'm sure all of them will come slowly one after the other but I want to make a real conscious effort to assist in making sure they actually do happen! I'm also aware that there will be days when nothing at all will happen, and I'll throw a pizza in the oven, throw my clothes all over the floor and browse the internet in bed until 3am because I can't sleep. But that's okay, as long as it's not 7 days a week.

Any of you lot planning on sorting out life stuff at the moment?
