Guess Who's Back?

Well hello, welcome to my fresh, new, iconic blog. It’s been a long time and well I will be going self-hosted again just not yet as there is more important thigs happening than becoming self-hosted again!


Where do we start? I’ve missed you all so much! I’ve missed writing on the blog and making something so incredible that I’m very excited to be back! I have no idea where to start but let’s just start from the beginning… so much has happened, I’ve finished college for another year! It’s been the best college year though and well I’ve met Chelsea who is the most incredible person ever, change is good and she has brought me out of my shell and helped grow my confidence and well we have a little trip to Rome in a couple of weeks and they best be ready for us! I think I want to do a post generally about Chelsea and the friendship we have and the incredible person she is and the memories we have made together because generally she deserves the appreciation post!




Why I decided I needed to clear my head and stop blogging:

It’s been a whirlwind of 6 months from the beginning of January, I spent the first 2 weeks of January in so much pain that meant I ended up in hospital a week before my 18th, I had so many tests and scans, doctors’ appointments, meetings with consultants, appointments to deal with stress and my mental health, it’s scary how you can go from living your own life to being watched by medical professionals for your own health and safety… I was diagnosed with coeliac disease in March 2018 however I have lived with this since I was born, this has caused me to become severely anaemic and in need of blood transfusions and iron infusions. I’ve gone to being reasonably fit and healthy to relying on the NHS more than I ever thought I would.

I’d love to talk more about my mental health, calorie counting loosing 4 stone, dropping 3 dress sizes and still not feeling any different, still feeling fat and ugly to living my best life dealing with everything life throws at me!



Over the past 6 months, I have struggled to come put words on paper, I felt like I lost all my blogging mojo but I did focus a lot on my exams and college work to be the best I can be. I felt like I never fitted in in the blogging community and everybody needs that time to come to terms with everything that’s going on and finding themselves…

I left Sainsbury’s and started working at a pub and it was the best decision I’ve made, ive grown in to myself, my confidence has flourished I’ve met some incredible people and I’ve learnt to be the best version of myself I can be and to live life as much as possible!!!

Anyway that’s just a quick rundown, catch up but my blogging game is going to be better than ever!

xoxo
