Happy New Year lovelies. I know it’s a little late to start with that but, it’s my first post of 2021 so, I just had to. And I think this year for probably the first time, it’s not just a seasonal greeting, I really really do wish you all such a happy 2021, and I have my fingers and toes all crossed in hopes that this year will be better than the one we’ve left behind. I usually do an annual style round up post, but HA there has been no exciting style to report on this year in my household. Although don’t get me wrong I am a big fan of the knitted lounge wear suits and and really trying to build a little WFH cosy/smart vibes capsule wardrobe to keep myself feeling ‘put together’ even when I’m only commuting between bedrooms.
As much as it has been a pretty crazy start to the year with all things news/ world/ lockdown related, I do feel genuinely hopeful of what’s yet to come. We are on the long dark road to spring time, it seems very long and dark but we’re moving forward nonetheless! Each day that comes around is giving us that little bit more day light which will start to make the world of difference in a few weeks time. Getting up out of a warm cosy bed into darkness is really not the one, is it?
As well as lighter days, there is also the actual scientific hope of the vaccine! I know it’s going to take some time to roll out and start making a real difference, but my word is that a hopeful bundle of science. The vaccine is the light at the end of the tunnel (so long as it definitely works on the new variable strains too- but let’s not entertain that thought just yet), that is helping me start the year in quite a positive headspace. Despite being in a national lockdown that won’t be ending any time soon. Living in the North West, I’ve been in tier 3-4 for months so it’s really no drastic change for me going into a national lockdown. So I’m just taking each day as it comes and enjoying the little rays of sunshine in my new-normal.
I definitely fell off my blogging train and seriously lost my mojo in the later half of 2020. But my mindset was very ‘fuck-it’ it’s 2020 and I just cba with anything except wrapping up in a blanket and watching TV. So that is mostly what I did with my spare time, and that’s totally fine. But now I’m feeling motivated with those New Year vibes to get back on the horse, so to speak, and fill this little hole on the internet up some more. I am going to adapt my blog a little this year as I feel I’ve grown so much over the past couple of years but my blog is still the same old page I started at 19. Now as a 27 year old (first time I’ve written that, and I feel like the years are really running away with me!), I feel like I’ve come into my own in so many aspects of life, and have more of a vision as to how I want my space on the internet to look, and the messages I want to put out to the world. So that being said, I’m starting to beaver away behind the scenes and hopefully I’ll be able to reveal my new blog style- circa 2021- sooner rather than later. And I’m really excited about it!
Sending virtual hugs to anyone struggling at the moment, which I know will unfortunately be a lot of people, so please know you’re not alone. Reach out to a friend, let people know how you’re feeling, chances are someone will be feeling the same. There’s no need to hide! My DMs are always open.
