Outfit: Coat - River Island, Hat - Accessorize, Jumper - Primark,Jeans - Woolworths, Boots - Aldo, Gloves - Forever NewHi! I am very much alive and so is this blog! I am so very sorry that I haven't been blogging, it has been traumatic not being able to update this space especially since it is has been my way to process all the change going on in my life. Sadly, in the process of moving hosting companies and country, my blog was neglected (not by me) and the domain expired without my knowledge. It took over a month to get to the bottom of the it and to find out what had happened and who was responsible. I was pulling my hair out over here in frustration, and not being able to blog was painful. I know some people may not understand this, but if you are a blogger you will feel my pain. Anyways, I am back and live again!
Come Wednesday I will have been in the United Kingdom for a month and to be honest, I'm freaking out just a tad. I have been incredibly lucky in the last three and a half weeks to have secured a temporary job in a digital role which considering the time frame and the UK's economy is nothing short of miraculous. I had hoped to find part time work so that I could continue to work with Pleiades Media (my mom's business) and freelance and blog more seriously, but with the availability of part time jobs and other factors, I've had to adjust my plans. This being said, I am looking forward to the challenges of working in an English business and being part of an internal digital communications team, and I am excited to grow my skill set and to learn. I do feel like I've thrown myself in the deep end as everything will be foreign for me; from taking the bus to work, to adjusting to business culture and working in a more structured environment. As if the last three weeks hadn't been an upheaval enough! Wish me luck because I am going to need it!

You may have noticed the lack of fashion focused on the blog lately which is a culmination of reasons mainly the rainy weather, the craziness of the last three weeks and the ongoing adjustment phase. Never the less, I have not lost my absolute love of clothes and dressing up, but I've found that my style has somewhat evolved in the short time I've been here. I came across this drawing in Hello Giggles by Cindy Mangomini which made me chuckle because it is so true.
