    Fresh Format Feel | Embracing The New Look

    Formatting a blog. It’s strange what set your memory going and make you miss the world of blogging. You can go months without feeling the need to write and then – BAM – the writing bug hits you harder than Dorothy’s tornado. Lewis and I have been watching Slasher on Netflix. Just to digress here but if you haven’t watched it, you need to. Just trust me on this one. Anyway, the third series features a blogger. And that was my trigger. And so here I am. Writing away. Designing blog headers. I figured some modernisation was needed and so I started in the only logical place. The header. Start…

    Career Move | Settling Down

    Careers, eh? Aren’t they so confusing? See, your job takes up over half of your life and, personally, I think the decision of what you want your career to be is a massive one. This is your entire life we are talking about. And I know that you can change jobs and it’s not 100% set in stone, but how many times do you really want to change your job? I’ve come to the point in my life where I would rather find a job that was suited so I could settle. There is nothing worse than the stress of finding a job, applying, waiting for a response, interviewing and…

    New House | On The Move

    A little bit of a life update here. A stressful and scary one but also an exciting one! We have moved. Nowhere too far away, we are still in Goole but we have moved. We finally have an actual house rather than a flat. And it feels so so so nice to have stairs. I know that seems strange for someone to say but when you’ve lived on a one floor place for a year and a half, you really miss having a second floor to climb to. It wasn’t a rash decision but it was one that needed doing.  To give you a brief of the situation, we were…

    MISSING | Where Did Sophie Go?

    Hey folks!   So it’s been a while, I know, but I’m planning on getting back into the blogging scene as and when I can. Starting right here!   Where have I been?!?   Well, that is a good question and an easy one to answer really. I’ve been busy. I’ve just been too busy and not really had the time to blog but I have missed it so much and so it is time to get my act together and make some time. Got to make time for the things you enjoy, right? Because if not then why are we alive? Deep, Soph, deep.   Let’s move on…  …

    Glasses Direct | Are They Too Good To Be True?

    Glasses. Does anybody who has to wear them really like them? I know that I don’t and I have been wearing glasses since I was in year 4 at Primary School. Apart from anything else, I just don’t think I suit glasses and definitely do not have the face shape for them. I just think they ruin any look I try and go for but then at the same time, if I don’t wear them then I can’t see. Such issues.   I hate wearing glasses.   Unfortunately, it is just something that I have to do or I cannot see. I have tried the other option of contact lenses…

    Getting Old | Birthday Haul!

    Aaaaand here we go again! Birthday time! It really doesn’t feel like two minutes since I was writing this post all about my Llama Walking. How time really does fly. A lot has happened in the past year and not all of it has been good but right now I am in a good place with every aspect of my life. What more could I want when turning 24!  Yeah, you heard right, I’m 24. I’m getting so old! So, this post isn’t exactly going to be about my birthday shenanigans. Shock horror! A birthday post that’s not about my birthday. I mean, it is but I’m going to discuss…

    The Life Of Sophie | Let’s Catch Up

    Hello! Its been a while, I know it has. Sometimes you just have to take some time away from things, no matter how much you enjoy them. But here I am people. I’m back. While I get back into the swing of things, I figured you might be interested in a catch-up with my life. An update on Sophie, you might say. If you’re not interested then you’re probably better off clicking the big red X at the top but I’d appreciate if you stuck with me, if only for a little while. So, if you have been following me for a while then you will know that I was…

    New Job Update | The First Day Of A New Life

    Bit dramatic the title, isn’t it? It is the truth though. Over the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of changes in my life, both wanted and unwanted. Starting my new role in a new office with a new company was one of them changes. I woke on the 24th September knowing that my life had made a massive leap. I was out of my comfort zone and starting work in a completely new place.   Scary, right?   You see the truth is that your work does make up most of your life. Working is life for most people and I am included within these people.…

    Final Day At Work | A New Start

    What an emotional day. My final day at work before I begin my new job in five days time. It was a weird one because as excited as I am to be starting a new job, and hopefully my future career, I was sad to be leaving. I think if you have enjoyed working for somewhere for over a year and a half, that is pretty normal, really.   One door closes and another one opens   Leaving my job was that best thing for myself even though I was sad to be leaving. Due to my wanting to ‘fly the nest’ as people say, I was needing a full-time…

    Blog Goal Reached | Featuring GIVEAWAY!

    I still consider myself a newbie and, to be honest, I probably will continue to do so until I have reached the six-month mark, maybe even longer! It might be a year before I actually consider myself a blogger.   I started blogging for myself and it was a good way to fill my free time (basically once Ginger has gone to bed for his 4am start) and to occupy my mind as well. I love writing and always have done so this was the perfect hobby for me. I blog for myself and have done since around two months ago when I published my first post.   However,  …
