So it's been quite some time since I last posted - 4 months to be exact. In a nutshell I just got busy, ran out of draft posts, and then didn't really know how to start again. There are some stereotypical 'beauty blogger' posts that just don't interest me, haul posts for example (although I still love reading them because I'm nosey), and it can get a little daunting when so many others post almost every day, have hundreds of followers, and Youtube channels (I don't want one of those either).
I love the beauty blogging community, and I think these things can be great for others, but in my own little corner of the internet I want to stick to writing about the things I care about - getting back to my roots (also literally, I've ditched the blonde in my hair!) even if that means less frequent posts. I want them to be the type of posts that people find useful, such as the Halloween Makeup posts, I can remember the pride I felt when I my friend told me they used my advice to create their own latex wounds and it's moments like that that inspired me to start blogging in the first place.
So, what have I been up to in the last 4 months? Well, I have been focusing on my final year dissertation, and my other passion: cocktails. Since late November, I've been working as a cocktail bartender and also entered a few cocktail competitions. I'm setting up a separate blog for cocktail related things 'Boozy Robot' so feel free to give that a follow if you're interested!
