Me about two minutes ago!!

Hello! Some of you may have noticed my blog disappeared for the last couple days… well, I am back and this page has a brand new look! I’ve long been wanting to bring back the sidebars for a while so you’re given a little more context, and I’m also really happy with this new layout to show you my pictures.

Over the last 6 months or so I’ve been wrestling with trying to maintain this blog as well as my professional website (next on the redesign hitlist); should I incorporate both? Should I use a different name? Should I keep my audiences separate? I’ve decided that for now it’s best to keep my blog away from being a straight-up career diary (although I will be posting more about my work), and I’ve invested in both a new design (this is actually the second one after the first one ended up being unusable) and my very own domain name for this slice of my life.

I’ve got lots of ideas for content as well; although I love sharing pictures, realistically it stops me from posting as often as I’d like as I simply don’t have the time to edit them all. I’d like to share some longer articles dealing with all manner of subjects; my beliefs, my background, my projects and my interests are all things I’d like to start sharing alongside my day-to-day life, my outfits and my travels. I hope you’ll find this interesting, and thanks so much for your continued support. :)

It’s now far easier to explore my categories and archives, so please have a look around and join me on my social media channels if you haven’t already. It’s likely a few posts from the past may now have some weird formatting – please shout if you find anything severely broken and going forwards it should all work fine!
