A New Start For My Fun Sized Life

Happy New Year everybody! I hope you've all had an amazing Christmas and you are getting over how much you've eaten and drunk! (Lets be honest there is still way too much food floating around the house that we've all been nibbling on).

One thing you may have noticed over the Christmas period is my absence from this blog. That is largely to do with the fact I was putting all of my efforts into Vlogmas (which kind of failed tbh) but it goes a bit deeper than that. I've been thinking a lot about what I want my blog to be and I haven't been happy with it for a while. I think some of it was down to not being happy with the look of my blog, hence the blog makeover, but I also haven't been 100% with the content I've been putting out either.

2016 was an incredible year for me blog-wise, I've got to know some amazing people and go to some awesome events but the best thing that's happened to me by far is how many people, some I know and some that I don't, who have had told me that they enjoy reading my posts. A few weeks ago a girl I used to work with came into Starbucks and said she always reads my posts when she sees them come up on Facebook. I haven't spoken to to her for about 2 years but it made me so happy. Sometimes I worry that nobody really cares about what I have to say, so it is so gratifying to find out someone besides my mum actually reads what I put out, and she's not the only one to come up to me and say it either!

Going into the new year sassy af

This has also given me something to reflect on, hence my blogging break. I realised that I could be someone people listen to, maybe I already am in my own little way. I really want to use that for good. I want my posts to help the people who read them. I want to talk about the real things that people my age are thinking about but maybe not necessarily talking about. I don't just want to be another girl on the internet talking about make up.

Don't get me wrong I'm not hating on beauty bloggers AT ALL. I just don't think that's me anymore. I'm 20 years old now and I feel it's time to move on a little bit from that. I may still write the odd beauty related post if there's something I think is worth talking about but it won't be something this blog is centred around.

Half way through writing this I got worried that this post is becoming a bit too "me, me, me" but then I thought, well, why not? It's my blog after all! I think I have been trying to please people too much and that needs to change. Whilst I want to help others, this blog is also for me so I will write what I want to write about. I have struggled for a long time with finding the "real me" but I feel like I am finally getting there and becoming the truest version of myself.

I want to write a lot more personal posts this year about things that affect me. I will also be writing a lot more about film, (not reviews though), music and vintage fashion because these are the things I am interested in. I am so excited for it! It was really fun looking at how far I've come with my blog in the last year and I hope this time next year we can look back and be even prouder.

I hope you're going to stick around and carry on enjoying this blog with me.

See you soon,
