The Work-Life Balance.

26 May 2014

The past two weeks or so has seen blogging take a definite back seat. I've struggled to find the motivation to get out the laptop and write after work or even at the weekend.

Moving in with the boys has definitely made me want to spend the evenings being sociable with them rather than tapping away at the desk. I so miss the blogosphere though and have so much more admiration for bloggers who post daily whilst still maintaining a full-time job. I genuinely don't know how they do it!

Another reason I think I've lacked motivation is that I've been rethinking the direction that I want to take this blog. I started Dress It Up after falling in love with beauty blogs and deciding that I wanted to take a leap into the make-up world too. Over a year later however and my blog taste has definitely changed. Don't get me wrong, I still love beauty blogs but I love lifestyle blogs. Having an insight into someones life is so fascinating to me. I love gazing at pretty pictures of a bloggers day trip or their newly refurbished kitchen.

Basically, I'm a nosy bugger. Sue me.

So essentially this post is to say; I'm back! I'm aiming to return to my organised posting self but with perhaps a slight change in the content. I still have an obsession with products and that won't go away, but you may be reading more of my life thoughts too.

Hope you've all had a wonderfully long weekend!


p.s. The picture above is the view from my bedroom window - I love how pretty London looks in the sun ♥ 


  1. Hello! I'm so glad you're back! My own blogging has been so utterly crap/nonexsistant in May but I'm finished college now for the summer and can't wait to get back to blogging!
