Coming back to blogging after a such a unexpectedly long break, felt quite frightening if I'm completely honest.
Is anyone gonna still be following? Even if they are, are they gonna be interested in the blog anymore? Have I made it too hard to find changing the name and domain?
I must have said 'i'll be back to blogging soon' so many times I've lost count! What makes this time different from all the other times I've said it?
One thing that I can definitely say is different, is my attitude to the bad days. The reason my break kept getting extended and extended was because everytime I had a 'off day' or my mental health was bad, I would struggle to write a post even if I had ones planned or I'd just refuse to write at all till I felt better, and then when I did feel better I'd struggle to get my motivation back up because I felt guilty for not posting. So it became a bit of an endless cycle.
But this time something has just clicked, part of the …
FarGo village is probably one of my favourite
places in Coventry. The mixture of its urban setting, the stunning street art
and unique local businesses…it's the perfect place if you want something
different from the normal high street shops and cafes.
Fargo also have fun and unique events on a
regular basis, such as food festivals, vintage fairs and Makers Markets.
Recently I went to the Autumn Maker's
Market on behalf of Coventry Bloggers,which is a seasonal market that

event manager who was really lovely and welcoming and made me feel at ease
which was so nice considering this was the first time I'd ever done something
like this without other Bloggers around! She told me about the makers market
and their passion for suppo…
So the other week, I went to another amazing Coventry Bloggers Event, arranged by the lovely Emily of Drained Beauty, this time at the Body Shop in Coventry City Centre.
I'll admit before I went to this event, my knowledge on the Body Shop was limited. I used to always get a gift set from there from an auntie every Christmas and I've followed them on Social Media for awhile now, but it's been awhile since I've tried anything by them. I had misconceptions that they were expensive and out of my price range, but how wrong I was.
Now onto the event itself!
Most of us met outside before the event, and I have to give a shout out to these girls. Some of them I've met quite a few times already and some I only first met at the event...but they are all amazing, friendly and encouraging people! They have restored my faith in the blogging community, and that's helping me to grow in confidence as a blogger.
When we entered the Body Shop, we were greeted by two lovely st…
