Where Have I Been?

Well hello there (to anyone who is still interested in my blog). It seems I have forgotten how to write. Apparently this is what happens when you have an unplanned three week break from the thing you spend all day everyday doing. 
Do not fear, I am still alive... Spending my days tweeting my life away and finding pointless things to Instagram, you know the deal. 

So, where have I been? Well, I went to Turkey for a week with my bezzie boo, had a swell time and have spent the last two weeks either at work or in bed. Yes, my life really is that exciting.

I won't bore you with the details of the emotional crisis that I've been going through lately. I'm over it. I'm okay. I'm moving on. That's all we need to know, unless you're someone who I've poured my heart out to recently then well... Poor you and I'm sorry. Someone buy me a pizza and shut me the hell up. 

Other updates in my averagely boring life... My new job that isn't so new anymore is going well, my blog has lots of exciting collabs coming up and I've spent the last week craving chinese food. Thanks post period hormones. 

One thing that I am struggling with at the moment is photography, it's something I really want to nail on my blog. I look to people like Holly and Imii for inspiration but I'm just not as cool as them, their photos kill it every single time. I know they say practice makes perfect but damn, when you have limited light and not a great deal of space to work with, practicing is really bloody hard. Hopefully the miserable Manchester skies will bless me with some good quality lighting, because lord knows how long I can keep this up.

I want to try and attempt some make up posts on the blog... And maybe even YouTube one day, but I'll stick to writing for now. I just want things to be a bit different round here y'know, mix things up a little and develop my own blog style. That was one of my goals for this year.

Since going away without my mum, I seem to have this newfound confidence... I mean, my self esteem is still in the gutter somewhere but I'm so much more carefree, meaning I want to have a go at some fashion posts too. God help us and my awkward posing, but HEY - Ambition is good, right?!

Life is good at the moment. We all go through phases of limbo and sadness, but after erasing one absolute dickhead from my life completely, I can safely say I'm starting to feel happier again. I've realised who my friends are over the past week, and the people I can depend on who actually care (not that I need to because lol I'm a sassy independent gal now) (joke).

If you made it this far into the post, are you feeling ok? Do you need a glass of wine? I know my rambles are hard to follow... Maybe I should've titled this "Kat's Brain Dump", it would've been so much more fitting.

If you've wondered where I've been (all one of you), then thank you... I do appreciate it - Regular posts will resume from now on, I hope.

    1. I'm still so scared to step into the world of YouTube but hopefully one day! x

  4. I am always so critical of my own photography but you are right practice makes perfect we will get there! Loving your Instagram and glad to hear you are feeling more motivated xx

  5. Dammit now I think I need some chinese food haha. I had wondered where your posts were - I keep seeing you pop up on twitter and thinking about your blog! I'm glad that negative person is out of your life and I hope you manage to complete some of your goals before the year is out

    Steph -

    1. Mm chinese food is the best. Aw, I'm glad someone missed me haha! x

  6. It's more than OK and normal to be critical of your own work. I am constantly tearing myself down for the "un-perfection" when it comes to photography. However, at the same time, I do agree with the girls - it comes with practice. I LOVE your photos to bits and think your photography is always stunning (I mean it, babe). I am so happy though that you feel so much better, stronger and more confident! You go babe! Just like you, I am trying my best to get bring fashion into my blog. I sometimes go ahead and start comparing my "fashion shots" with huge bloggers and their glossy magazine-like photos, and it's not right. Because I do not have a team of people to do my makeup, hair & get my outfit together, also I don't have a photographer at my beck and call 24/7. Plus, when it's light outside I am usually working lol. What I can do is do my best and see where it takes me :) So let's do this, hon!!! :D

  8. Oh, I´m looking forward to all the make up and fashion posts! I bet you´ll do wonderfully on them and put your own spin to them.
    Congrats on erasing that dickhead from your life. I´ve been through that a few times already & when you come out on the other side, life suddenly seems so good and positive!
    In general, I´m okay. I went back to uni this week and my anxiety is acting up a bit but I´m hoping that´ll work itself out over the next couple of days.
