What’s next now I’m back from travelling?
I’ve had a good year. I made my childhood dream of becoming a world explorer, discovering new and far destinations come true. And from the bottom of my heart, I’ve loved every minute of it. Travelling, is the life. What was always going to suck, was having to come home at the end of it. So what’s next? What am I going to do now I’m back from travelling?…
AT THE END OF THE DAY, COMING HOME SUCKED.
It was always going to. And being at home sucks too. My friends are incredible and I missed them tenfold whilst I was away. I love the puppy and without her, I don’t think getting out of bed to battle the pile of job applications I have facing me would be worth it. But I’m not going to lie and say I had a fantastic time but it’s great to be home either.
Some things about being home is great. Home cooked meals and clean bedsheets. Those things are great but it I’ve learnt a lot about myself these last 4 months. The main thing being, I love to be outside and I love travelling.

BUT WHAT’S NEXT NOW I’M BACK?
FINDING A JOB…
First thing’s first, I’ve got to find a job. Travelling was beyond amazing (I know I keep saying that) but I am officially broke. Like, actually officially, signed onto benefits and everything.
In fact, if you know anyone who’s hiring: I’m an incredibly hard-working Arts Graduate with a passion for photography and design. Haha. So tell your friends, your parents and your parent’s friends that this talented gal over here is on the hunt for some £££.
GET A CAMPER VAN
That’s right, you heard it. This ‘never once been camping, can I bring my straighteners?’ girl wants to purchase a camper van! There’s a big difference to camping in a tent to in a van with heating and electricity, but I bloody loved it whilst in Iceland. And I want to do it again.
Granted not immediately, in a few or so. I want to travel more but I want to discover more of the country I live in too. So, I’ll be choosing lots of little vacay’s and long road-trips rather than round the world adventures. I’ve seen a lot of Asia and only very little of Europe. Even less of the U.K.
LIGHT THE FIRE TO MY OWN BUSINESS
FIND A PLACE IN THE BLOGGING FORUM
I love blogging. Aside from the puppy (and Taylor Swift) it’s one of those things that can help me escape into the world of fearless where anxiety and world troubles don’t exist. And, whilst I was away, I had a lot of time think about the future of my blog. What I wanted, where I could take it, why I was doing it? Most importantly, where did I fit in to all the masses of incredible bloggers around me?
I’ve found a new direction for this space on the internet. I’m going to focus less on beauty and more about life. Hopefully I can still tell you all about my amazing adventures too which is something you told me you want to hear when I asked on Twitter.
Often, I talk about my goals and dreams on this blog but I think it’s important to keep you in the loop. I love reading fashion posts and wanderlust infused content. But I love it more when I know the individual behind the words. So that’s what this is.
Tell me, what’s next for you? Summer has just started (that’s crazy because I feel like mines just ended!) What is your plan for the next 2 months? Are you planning to make any changes? Have you got many plans on the horizon? I’d love to know.
What I’m Wearing
I spent so much time watching endless Primark Haul’s on YouTube whilst I was away. It was torture but pure joy at the same time. Not being able to shop for four months was possibly the biggest downside to travelling. I ended up living my shopping desires vicariously through the people of YouTube made 10x better.
Anyway, this striped Bardot top is from Primark, I forget the price but all you have to remember is I’m broke and it’s Primark. So let’s be honest, it wasn’t expensive!
These jeans are crazy old. They’re the ripped Joni’s from Topshop. The belt I’m wearing, is – again – from Primark. My shoes, which are the cutest white espadrills with a black overlay on the toes (you can’t see them so you’ll have to take my word for it!) are also from Primark.
These sunnies are from a knock-off market place in Bali. You’ll probably find some similar in Primark too! This watch is one of the many beauties by Olivia Burton and the choker is from Urban Outfitters.
