IT’S ONLY 4 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS GUYS!!!
I am more than a little excited for Christmas shenanigans now, all the presents are wrapped and hidden away, I’ve already eaten my body weight in chocolate and I’m just so excited to give my parents their gifts now. It’s actually my favourite moment of the year watching them open what I’ve bought for them, especially as this year will probably be the last year I can really spoil them (until I’m a millionaire obvs) because I’ll be moving into my own place next year and definitely won’t be able to afford it.
I’ve finished work for 2 weeks now as well which is good! I’ve needed a couple of weeks off just to switch off and relax, it had gotten to the stage where I was dreaming of work last week because there was just so much going on and I was so stressed that I couldn’t even switch off in my sleep, so 2 weeks away from the office is much needed even though I have had to bring some work home with me to do over Christmas.
It also means that I can get some outfit shots done in bulk ready for January. I’m trying to decide on a blog schedule for the New Year as I feel like this year has been a bit haphazard and all over the place. I love daily blogging but it’s something that just doesn’t work for me as I end up getting way too stressed over it while trying to work and have a social life as well, so I’m debating keeping it to 2 outfit posts, my Sunday post and one miscellaneous post a week but we’ll see what the New Year brings.
I also read a really thought provoking article this morning (here) which has struck a chord with me and got me thinking about my own levels of social media consumption and how I’ve let it affect my daily life. I think everyone nowadays is guilty of comparing their lives with others around them, and especially in the blogging and YouTube world, but I never before realised the levels in which I do it and how unhappy it actually makes me. It’s something I’m going to be considering a lot going into 2015, I really need to make some changes.
