Life Update: Where Have I Been?

I haven't managed to get anything posted on here for almost two weeks. So with that being said I thought I'd give you a little update as to what's been going on.
I've been doing a lot of shifts lately at work and with not finishing until 7pm I haven't been getting home until late and once I have got home blogging hasn't even crossed my mind at all, I literally just get home, eat and sleep. I am going to try and get on top of pre writing posts though, because I don't want my blog to die a slow death even when I am really busy.
Despite being busy at work I have done some fun things.

On Saturday (26/08) I went to the pride parade with my friend and godson. It's something I absolutely love going to and have gone so many times, as part of the lgbtq community I love having a day in my home city where we celebrate ourselves and all our differences. I honestly had such a good day.

On the Sunday (27/08) it was my beautiful godsons first birthday. My cousin had a party at hers for him. It was such a lovely and I cannot believe he is one already, I feel like he was born just yesterday. Also can we just talk about the cake she made for him, how amazing does that look? It also tasted just as amazing as it looked.
There hasn't been much else going on really, like I said work has pretty much taken over my life recently and when I have had spare time I've spent it with friends or family and (or) sleeping and eating.
Although it's not yet happened I do have something incredibly exciting coming up, I'm finally going to meet up with my blogging girlies in two weeks time. We're having a sleepover and I'm so excited. I cannot wait to meet all of them. We've all become so close and it's going to be amazing to finally meet up and spend time together.
I will make a better effort to make sure that my blog isn't left so long without post in future. I'm so rubbish at pre writing posts, I usually post as and when I feel like it, I don't really have a schedule however even I was a bit annoyed with myself that I'd left it this long with no particular reason other than laziness. Oops, sorry.

It's Your Blog...

I've just read a post, you all know what I'm on about and it really did get me riled.
The great thing about the blogging community is the different posts you get within it, one moment I can read a though provoking post which makes me see the world differently or to do something to help and the next I can read a really great haul that makes me want to spend all my money.

I write about mental health because I do want to be part of the change which ends the stigma attached to it, it's something close to my heart and I want to see a change but also blog about other things that won't massively make a huge difference to humanity, for example beauty related things, makeup posts, favourite posts ect... It's my god damn blog and I will use my space on the internet to write about what I want to. No one has any right to police your blog, this is your blogging journey not theirs and if they don't like it they can unfollow you and not read your blog. It'll be no great loss to you. I know for a fact I only want to surround people who are supportive of me and what I put out there.

If you don't like what someone is posting then don't read it, I don't understand the mentality of reading something, disliking it and then going off about it. If you put on a film you didn't like you'd just turn it off, no one is forcing you to read posts you don't particularly want to.

For most people, blogging is their hobby in which they get away from their stresses of every day life. My blog gives me an outlet, and I choose what goes here not anyone else. I know not everyone will like my content and that's okay, if we all liked the same things it'd be a very boring world, but to write a post basically shaming people on their content is horrible. How dare someone sit there and take time out of their day to make others feel shit about what they're posting. How dare anyone think they have a right to police others and tell them what they can and can't post.

Post what you want to, its your blog.
And never let anyone make you think that what you're posting is pointless.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that none of you are too upset by that post.

Why I Can't Wait For Autumn

This post is a little early, i guess you could say but now we're in August I've become even more excited the Autumn is looming and will be here soon.

(Photo: Google image search.)

For me Autumn has always been my favourite time of the year and here is exactly why...

All the leaves are falling
They're basically dying and that seems depressing when you think about it, but it's really not. When the leaves turn an orange and brown colour and fall to the ground it makes it look so pretty.

Having the fire on
We don't often have our fire on because we don't really need to, we have central heating however in autumn we can have it on and it feel so cozy whilst snuggling on the sofa and watching films. 

Weather i can deal with
I'm miserable when it's too warm and hate going out when it's raining too much, although i don't mind it a little bit. However autumn weather is something i can work with, because it's not too cold nor is it too warm.

It's my absolute favourite time of the year. I've always been into anything spooky, dark and horror related and having a time of year where i can celebrate that without looking like a complete weirdo makes me incredibly happy.

Wearing all my wardrobe
I don't have much in my wardrobe for any other seasons if i'm honest and pretty much all of it can be worn in the autumn months so it's great to actually be able to wear everything. 

Do you love Autumn? If so what are your reasons for loving it?
