What have I been up to? | Life Update 

It’s been a while since I wrote a more personal post because so much has been going on between, work, uni and life in general so I thought why not give you all a life update, where i’ve been and what I've been up to. 

As i said it’s been a while since I've done any personal posts and i feel like i have a few things to share with you all about what’s been going on.

I’ve been working a hell of a lot lately, i usually don’t get home until around half seven, eight o’clock at night so i tend to be a bit MIA on social media and from my blog when i’m working. 

My mental health hasn’t been at it’s best and I just feel so frustrated regarding it, I had such a good period of time where I believed I had it all under control, however as many of you probably know, your mental health is unpredictable, it can change so quickly. Every time I start going into my bad place after being in such a good place I get really angry at myself and start to feel as though I've failed and that all the work I've put into improving it has been pointless. I know it’s not my fault but I can’t help blaming myself for not doing enough or doing more to feel better. Recently I bought myself two new books in the hopes that maybe I can take some tips I hadn’t maybe thought of to try and help improve my mental health and get it under control again.

A good thing that's happened over the past couple of months is that I've gone to a few gigs. I got to see Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Tokio Myers and Fall Out Boy live. It always lifts my mood going to see people live and i’m a little sad that at the moment I have nothing else planned until October. Speaking of October and live shows, I bought myself a VIP meet & greet ticket for Jack Maynard’s tour in October and i’m so excited. I’m finally meeting Jack, it doesn’t seem real and it probably won’t do until he’s stood there right in front of me.

I’m still studying my Psychology and Counselling degree with the Open University and it’s going amazingly well. Between that and work it takes up a lot of my spare time.

Just a quick sidenote my makeup in these photos was done by my best friend, please all go and follow her beauty / makeup account on instagram - She does some amazing looks and is extremely talented.

I think I've pretty much updated you on everything that’s going on.
 I hope you’re all having a lovely day.
