Hello? Anybody out there? It's been a while, right? 

I last posted October last year - scarcely at that - and it really does feel like forever. I actually decided to take a much longer blogging break than previously planned (although it wasn't really planned, per se) I just felt that with the complete disaster that was 2016, a year that will go down in history as one of the oddest, most frustrating years on record, no doubt; I didn't exactly fancy raving about my favourite liquid lipstick when there were more important issues going on in the real world! Don't get me wrong, I love chatting about beauty and lifestyle, even if this is only going out to myself right now, and I still use products and have new favourites to share. But in this moment I felt it my blogger duty to let you know that I'm back and I'm raring to go again, just as the evenings are getting lighter too - how convenient...

So yes, 2016 was pretty crazy. We can all agree with that. Celebrity death after celebrity death, murdered gorillas, Brexit, Trump becoming president of the United States, Toblerones decreasing in size... Outrageous if you ask me. Do you know what though? We're all still here. We survived 2016, onwards and upwards.

Despite January 2017 handing me a big load of personal physical and mental health problems (hence the much longer break than previously thought) I'm writing this from my cosy marshmallow bed after work on the 8th February and I'm feeling a lot more positive about this year than the last. I would love to know from you guys what you'd like to see on this blog as we hopefully march on. Do you want to know more about me? Would you like posts about mental health? More lifestyle? More beauty reviews? Perhaps some makeup tutorials? All the food posts? I would honestly love to know your opinions! This blog has been a solace to me for years now, growing and changing with me as cheesy as that sounds. Even as I'm writing this I'm loving the feeling of sitting down and tapping my (long and oh-so-fake) nails on the keyboard again, reading a post for publication. 

I've missed this. Let's not leave it this long next time!
