I’ve been a wee bit absent lately. I’d like to say I was off doing amazing things, but in reality, I spilled coffee on my laptop (that’s what happens when you insist on staying up until 4am to do uni work). My phone battery also managed to die and refuse to charge so I’ve been pretty internet-free for a while. I’m glad to be back online, and hopefully posting regularly again, but it was really nice just to disconnect for a while, even if I did get lost a few times due to having no Google maps.

Whilst I was away I started a new eating plan (another post, another time) and have managed to lose nearly half a stone in a matter of weeks (although, my father-in-law has fallen ill this week, so eating healthily has been at the back of all of our minds for the last wee while). Pretty excited to be able to see changes in my body already.

I’ve also started writing my dissertation (eek!). Scary but it must be done. It does mean I’m going to have to be stricter with my time however. Usually, I’ll sit for 4/5 hours and edit photos write a weeks worth a posts and schedule them, but I don’t have 5 hours to spare anymore. So I’ve invested in a Filofax to better organise my time, which is working pretty well for uni work/gym/social/work organisations so far! I gave my desk a little make over too, thought it might motivate me to get more done (but I think spend more time rearranging and making new stuff to decorate the area with!)

As you might be able to see above, I’m not longer a blondie/lilac-y! Although my hair seemed pretty healthy, it had been the same length for years due to the ends snapping off. I got a bit bored of having to do my roots all the time too, so I’m now joined the masses and become ombre as an attempt to grow out my hair.

Hopefully I can go back to my usual schedule of 3 posts a week now, but it may drop down to 2 until my dissertation is done! Will just have to see. But with Christmas (Yes, I said the C-word!) creeping up, I can feel myself getting more and more inspired. I just love this time of year.

I’ve missed reading blogs so much these past few weeks, has anyone got any posts they’re really proud of? I don’t know where to start catching up on everything!

What have you been up to lately?
