When life gets in the way

When life gets in the way most things get thrown up into the air. Its been ages since my last blog post and that’s mainly due to life getting in the way of everything! There has been some rather horrific drama in my life recently – which was worthy of a Hollyoaks script. Lol (I don’t like Hollyoaks) I broke up with my bf of two and a half years and while that may not seem like a lot to some of you it’s the longest relationship I’ve been in and its all been quite a shock to the system.

In case you’re a bit nosy like me none of it was his fault and it was me who mucked up and needed out. I did some bad things and it wasn’t fair to him to drag out a failing relationship. So I’ve cried hysterically, felt ill with guilt and worry, and beaten myself up about it all, but at the end of it all, I’ve emerged a better and stronger person. And most importantly I haven’t felt this happy in ages! :)

Yes, its been hard but you survive. I didn’t mean to talk about this as much as I have but I’d like to mention two people’s blogs that have helped me so much. (Its possible a bit weird saying that two people who you’ve never met before can help you through difficult times but I truly love reading these people’s posts – and in many ways they have changed the way I think.)

1. Kandee Johnson (kandee the make-up artist). I first found kandee months and months ago on youtube and I instantly knew she was going to become a youtube star. Her blog is often about much more than make-up and fashion. Her writing and advice is inspirational and has encouraged me to be so much more positive and happy about life. (Her videos are also amazing – she is so enthusiastic and talented!)
2. Kim from Mermaid in a Manhole. I found Kim quite recently on blogger and I love her practical advice about life and various issues. She gives lots of really useful tips and ideas which has encouraged me to think differently about things.

Also check out this website which I found through Kim. Something really different. :)

Thanks for reading. I’m going to write some more blog posts on make-up now and post them soon.

Love sarah xxx
