Oh, Hello!

October 22 2012

1. New Hair :: 2. French Tips :: 3. Enchiladas, yum!
4. Day out Shopping :: 5. Angel slices hmmm! :: 6. In Nandos being anti-social, haha!
7. Froyo, yo! :: 8. Gym time (Been doing a lot of Yoga too!) :: 9. RiRi.. Love this song!

I was planning on posting an outfit yesterday, but the rain just did not allow for me to photograph it. London eh?
It’s been a while since I last blogged, and trust me when I say that I really wanted to in the last month, but just couldn’t bring myself to.
I took a (long) break, in essence, from the online world.
Just needed to breathe and explore other areas of my life. I’ve since realised that blogging as well as youtubing is a part of my life, and I will always enjoy it, but more importantly is the need to balance it all with everything else. I’m working on it. 
I’m currently running around town, but thought to drop in with this post and share with you some of my photos from instagram. At least you’ll get a little feel of what I’ve been up to!
Keep your eyes peeled, I have a few posts up my sleeve!

Hope you’re well!
