Life Lately #7

Well, it’s been a few months since my last life lately update hasn’t it? At the time of writing that post I’d just started a new job-at the end of March I’ve been there six months! Crazy how fast time goes, so I thought I’d better do another update before things change anymore.

I’ve been losing weight and I’ve dropped a dress size, and twenty two pounds, in the last six weeks. I’ve had to buy all new underwear and chuck out my jeans, going from a size sixteen to a fourteen-and I feel great for it. I had a photoshoot recently and felt like a million dollars.

I’ve just got home from my first trip of 2019, crossing off two new countries from my 40 before 40 (Denmark and Sweden) as well as another city in Germany. The trip was fantastic but tiring and as I’ve recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and I’ve learnt a lot about how I need to change my trips now I’m travelling with Fibromyalgia. It’s going to be different, but just as good, as long as I’m planning my trips properly. I’ve booked my next trip, to Porto, and I have a brand collaboration piece coming up for Manchester, as well as plenty of Hamburg, Copenhagen and Stockholm content-keep your eyes peeled for plenty more from me travel wise.

My parents and I have gained a dog, Buster, who used to belong to my brother but for various reasons now lives with us. He’s half Lhasa Apso and half Poodle, making him 100% the best dog in the world, and I’m so in love with the little ball of fluff-even when he howls during the night thinking next door are breaking in!

Freelance wise everything has gone quiet. That’s fully down to me, I’ve stopped with Laura Haley Photography over the winter as I always do and starting my new job has meant that I don’t have as much time as I’d like to blog, and especially to apply for opportunities and pitch. I’ll be getting back to normal though, as I really miss both the extra income and the proud feeling I get everytime I publish a great bit of content I’m lucky enough to be paid for. Blogging really is the best thing I ever did.

What have you guys been up to lately? Tell me your news in the comments, please.
