Happy Halloween Witches

Its finally the day, the day where I can be free to cast as many spells and make as many potions as I possibly can. All Hallows Eve has finally returned and I couldn't be more happy. I was up as soon as the sky started to get bright and thankfully my spell I cast last night on the sun seems to have worked as it's nowhere in sight! 

I caught up on some spells this morning and I am already brewing a new potion for any of the children that may come knocking on the door. The animals all have their best outfits on and while they aren't pleased with it they're just getting on with it. Seriously though, do you know how hard it is to make a potion while theres 3 little rats running around at your feet! The devil dog, the ghoulish bunny and the vampire guineapig have all been driving me insane since 6am. 

While the potion is brewing for the next 6 hours theres a lot of tidying to do around here, although I may just ring the monkeys and get them to do it as after all this is my day, I deserve to put my feet up!

I've Fallen Out Of Love With Blogging

So...long time no blog post. I've been trying my best to write up new posts for Darling Jordan and I've tried to avoid the actual reason and say it was just one of those times where I couldn't write. When in reality I know that I've fallen out of love with blogging, and I've fallen hard!

Blogging used to be a huge part of my life, I may not have been the best at it but I absolutely adored writing up about things I was passionate about, or even about a product I'd been really loving. This happened last year around the exact same time and the reason!? A full time job. I'm not an organised person, I cant handle more than one thing in my priorities clearly. I honestly don't know how people work full time and also keep up with their blog work, honestly I fully envy them and wish I could do that. But truth is when I get home from work it's usually 8pm or 9pm so the only thing I want to do is relax in bed and watch something on Netflix. By the time a day off comes around I generally spend it having a full on relaxing day and catch up with some naps every few hours. 

I recently started back posting on my Instagram and while I cant find the words to write a blog post I haven't lost my love for taking photographs. I don't know what it is but I just really love taking photos and then editing them to the best of my ability. Instagram is a little less than the ones I take for my blog, I like to keep it casual as when I stick to a "camera only theme" I just stress myself out too much. Sure the photos aren't anything amazing but I really enjoy making up little setups to take photos. While I fell out of love with Instagram a few months ago, I finally feel like I'm falling back in love with it. So I'm hoping it will happen with blogging again at some stage.

While I'm not going to stress myself out over it, I do want to try and inspire myself in some ways. I'm not sure how yet but I am going to start writing down any little idea I get and take it from there. 
While I'm not saying I'm quitting, because I don't want to do that as I am proud of my little corner of the internet and in somewhat am very proud of it. I'm also not saying you'll start seeing blog posts popping up from me within the next week because I don't know if you will or not. I'm no longer going to try and force myself to write because I feel that just pushes me further away from it. 

So while I want to come back to doing what I truly loved, I cant right now. I feel too much hatred towards Darling Jordan when I want to love it and it kind of saddens me in a way. I don't want to grow apart from blogging as it's something I have done for the past 2 years, and I feel like I don't want to throw all that hard work away, even if it is just silly little reviews and posts about what I've been up to lately because when I love it, I absolutely love it!

Maybe I'll go for a total re-vamp or maybe I just need a bit more time away from the screen of my iMac. So while this definitely isn't a goodbye it is a see you soon...maybe.
I do have a few posts that need to be up by the end of next month due to PR commitments so I'm hoping by that time I'll be back to my old self.

Until then, See you soon Darling Jordan.


Sorry for the ramblings, I just felt like I needed to let it all out. Also sorry if none of it makes sense, I just kind of let myself write and then pressed published because its real.

Shadow Switch The Product That Allows You To Switch Between Colours With No Fuss

Beauty Essentials Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner Review
Do you know when you're after applying an eyeshadow and the brush you're using you need to use again but you need to dip it into a different colour, meaning you have to clean your brush and it's just the most annoying thing ever?! Cause same! I've spent the past few years swirling the brush on my hand or my pyjama pants (don't do this, your mum won't appreciate it) for those days I'm in a rush and don't have time to get a tissue to swirl the brush on. So when Shadow Switch* came through my postbox I was so excited to give it a try, because if it worked it was going to make my life a whole lot easier.

Where I've Been || No Internet, Starting A New Job & More

Yes I'm back, finally! After a hectic month of our home internet not working and trying to use the 3G off my phone we finally got our home internet back. We won't point any fingers at companies who can't seem to keep their internet working but we will say they are muppets just because well that's what they are. I've been trying to use the 3G from my phone to work my iMac so I could get some posts written and while sometimes it would work 9/10 times it wouldn't! But with the bad internet out of the way it's finally back and thank the lord!
