A lot has happened in the last 6 months. I’m trying so hard not to dwell on the past in a negative way because what happened has happened and I’m just trying to move forward. The only way I want to look at the past right now is to see how I’ve grown and improved and that’s why I’ve written this post.
I wish I had been blogging back in January when I was thinking of my new year resolutions, but unfortunately, I was busy being trapped in an unhappy relationship and I wasn’t putting myself first as much as I should have been. So, looking back at the last year, I’ve been trying to put all the big life changes into perspective and think about all that I have achieved.
I thought today would just be an update of my mental state and to be totally honest, it’s not great for me at the moment.
I am incapable of going into a store with an NYX counter without swatching a tonne of different shades and usually buying at least one. I am in love with their lipsticks and I thought I would do a post sharing some of my favourites, especially the Lip Lingerie ones that I am looking forward to being my standard shades for the whole of Autumn.
People often ask me where I want to go most in the world and I say “I don’t know. I want to go everywhere”. I have definitely got the travel bug. Ever since my first month long trip to Japan and South Korea in 2016, I am constantly itching to get back on a plane and explore the world. But why do I love it so much? Sure everyone loves a holiday, but for me and so many others traveling is different.
I am bisexual. I have known this for a few years now, but before I realised this, I came out to my closest friends and my mother as a lesbian. I had to come out twice to these people and I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the significance of my coming out experiences in my life. I’m so comfortable with who I am that coming out to anyone new just feels annoying.
