Life, updated

Hi everyone.

I know I haven’t really blogged, like, at all this year. I guess it was a combination of factors. After returning from holidaying in the Gold Coast, I returned to work. As soon as I started back, it was full-on. I was working long hours and had a lot to do. Stress soon took over and with added stress, depression started to take hold again. I found the black dog had well and truly come to stay. In order to get back to my happy place, I knew I had to make changes. I just didn’t know what. In the end, I decided to resign from my job. It was an incredibly hard decision. The people I worked with are absolutely awesome and I miss seeing them everyday. Soon after I had resigned, Man Piece got a job offer in Wellington. It was an easy decision to make, as moving back to Wellington was always our end game. Instead of looking for a new job in Sydney, I began packing up my life and looking for jobs in Wellington.

We’ve been back about a week and a half now. I can feel happy returning and the creative juices beginning to flow. For the first time in months I actually want to blog! And write and go out and see friends. A huge change from only a few months ago.

So, to catch you all up on my life in the last few months, and some of the outfits I have worn, here is a post full of pictures and outfits.

Because the GC was so humid I pretty much spent the week in singlets and leggings. Singlet: ASOS. Leggings: City Chic.

Man Piece and I celebrated three years together at the end of January. He surprised me with a nice dinner at Ripples in Pyrmont.

I loved this dress as soon as I saw it on model Jess. Sure enough upon returning to Wellington, Man Piece bought it for me as my birthday present.

Finally, after packing up my life and getting rid of many things I did not want to part with, Man Piece and I flew back to New Zealand.

Now resident in Wellington, I am looking for a new job, while getting to know the city again. I also hope to start blogging more regularly and to start doing the Aussie Curves challenges again (hopefully starting with Pattern Clash this week). Stay tuned!
