Over the past 18 months I have found it challenging to maintain my weekly blog posts, get in front of the camera and all round make the effort. I could tell you a million reasons why I haven’t but I’m finally in an amazing place and ready to take responsibility. Personally, I don’t see the point in blogging if I’m not able to truly enjoy it so I’ve taken time to get myself together. You all know my previous history and now I’m 100% on the mend (I’ve made a few lifestyle changes i.e; healthy eating & working out) and now I’m so EXCITED for what the future holds!! After my upcoming Summer adventures (you can read them here) I’ve some serious decisions to make – like whether or not I want to stay here in Ireland or move and start a new life abroad.
You may remember that at the start of last summer I shared my experience of living with Chronic Anxiety (you can read it here). It took me quite some time to open up about it as I was feeling embarrassed. Eventually I built up the courage to talk about things and I sought help. Once I received my diagnosis I spent further time building myself back up and moving into a more positive place. After sharing everything with all of you I felt a huge sense of relief and gratitude as you were all so kind.
This past year or two I have spent time thinking about things I wish I had accomplished when I was younger. I suppose everyone has these feelings and to a certain degree it is completely normal, but I just thought I would share my thoughts with all of you today. As cliché as it sounds I’m getting closer to my dirty thirties (deep breathes) and it’s true what they say, your younger year go by in the blink of an eye. I’ve gather some points that I hope will encourage some of my younger readers to branch out and explore the world a little more. You’ll find they all go hand in hand with each other.
I’ve something exciting to share with all of you… You may have already noticed a change on my blog. Over the past few months I’ve been working hard to develop a new theme (courtesy of a talented designer friend) to build the Niamh Kelly brand.
One final mini tribute to Christmas, my latest Instagram feature is filled with Christmas trees, cute decor and LOTS of new make up purchases. I was very kindly gifted with some beautiful palettes for Christmas. Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the absolutely beautiful Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay and the Tartelette in Bloom palettes. The UD monochrome packaging is unbelievable and the vibrant Tarte palette is fabulous. (I’m such a sucker for details), the shades are pretty spectacular. I’m getting those good old January blues, (I’m sure I’m not the only one!) I miss all of the sparkle. Although I’m very excited to start 2016 feeling fresh and ready for a new year (as cliché as that sounds). Read More
