After a couple days of excruciating back pain courtesy of a car accident last year, today, I just wanted to take the pressure off and write about anything I wanted and have a little fun with it. This month I have had the incredible news that I have been nominated for the Plus Size Awards again, but unlike last year where I was nominated for 'Best Fashion Blog' and fortunately won it, this year I've been nominated for a mind blowing 3 awards! So, what better subject to write about than my blogging journey so far?
With all the excitement of Rome this month, I actually forgot it was my blogging anniversary and that I've now been writing for just over two years. The thought makes me incredibly happy, especially to say that when I first starting writing my blog, I was working in Lush and pretty much hated everything about my life. So, why did I start blogging?
I decided to take a gap year before starting University as I honestly could not cope with the pressure of College and it actually made me a very depressed person, well, that amongst other things. I had just come out of a relationship, two weeks later my Nan passed away, then College was finally over and I decided that everyone I was surrounding myself with, were nothing put poisonous, selfish people. I was at an all time low, convinced that my life was cursed (seriously) and I didn't think there was a way out. I basically cleaned out my life, like you would a computer and it took a couple months after this clean out for me to reboot myself properly. At first I thought working two 5 hour shifts a week and having no friends was amazing as I had more time to do absolutely nothing, and when you're in College with a job, you appreciate doing nothing.
