Life Lately #1: Online Dating, Being Ghosted, Bedroom Updates & More

A few little recent life updates. I thought I would start a new little series of mini life updates almost like a ‘Dear Diary’ style post every few months with how things are going and so you can get to know the blogger behind the blog a little bit. Recently I’ve been going through a few changes in my life and thought I could share them with you and have a little chat. (I will be taking better pictures soon) 
ONLINE DATING & BEING GHOSTED
Firstly I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve been single for the past 3 years and I’ve been slowly working on myself and working on being happier in my body and being myself. This is why I started my #YearOfYou series which I started because of Marissa Lace. Over the past year I have been trying to love my own body and be happier with it, eating healthier and trying to find myself and what I want in life. Along the way I finally became happy and content being on my own but now I want to find someone to share life with and eventually start getting into online dating. I signed up to a few dating apps including Tinder and Plenty of Fish (who I know a few people who’ve had successful relationships via) so I decided to try them out. Tinder hasn’t gone so well but with POF I’ve been talking to quite a few guys getting to know them but eventually they all decided to ‘ghost’ me (yes we all love it when this happens). 

Well I thought this would be a happy post but then again I’ve been let down by yet another guy and have in turn been ghosted, yet again. I don’t know why this keeps happening to me but it’s not doing my anxiety and confidence any favours. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong! I met this amazing guy and we were getting on so well and then all of a sudden he was ignoring my messages, reading them and then later on deleting them and I just can’t describe how I’m feeling right now. I feel so mentally and emotionally drained so much so I cried myself to sleep the other night. I’m just so fed up of being disappointed. With all the negativity aside I think I need to control my anxiety more, I know I keep saying this but it always seems to get in the way of everything I love and effecting everything in my life. I just don’t know how to control it anymore. I am slowly writing up a blog post all about ghosting and what it’s actually like to be ghosted, so keep an eye out for that one. If you would like to see Love Advice posts like that then let me know in the comments below. 


Okay so an update: Turns out this guy wasn’t ghosting me and he assured me he would never do that to me. He was having family and health issues and just took some time out to sort things out which is understandable I guess. We are slowly getting things back on track and hopefully a date will be on the cards but I don’t want to jinx anything at the moment. But he honestly makes me so happy and I can really see myself being with him (cute isn’t it).
 

BEDROOM UPDATES
I’ve slowly been adding small bits to my bedroom and still trying to re-decorate my bedroom. One of the things I’ve recently purchased was this Shabby Chic Mirror and Shelf/Drawer set to go above my makeup vanity. I have been after a really nice shabby chic mirror for ages to go above my vanity and this one is perfect, I also wanted the shelf and drawer set to go above my vanity to put my makeup products on/in and also the four hooks I can hang my favourite necklaces on. Me and my Dad put up my new shelf and mirror above my vanity the other weekend and I’m really pleased with how it all turned out. I still need to fill in the holes, smooth down my walls and eventually find some paint and wallpaper and actually finish my bedroom as it’s been a mess for about 2 years. As I’m now working full time I don’t have any holidays to finish my bedroom but hopefully I can book some time off and finish my bedroom how I want it. But I’m slowly getting there. It took a little bit of moving around and trying to find the best place to put these but we figured it would be best to put the shelf above my ALEX 9 unit to put more beauty bits on. I then decided to arrange my beauty books on top of my vanity with my Miss Etolie canister pots with beauty bits in also on top of my vanity. I then put my light up S, brush pots and clear acrylic lip and eyeshadow palette storage on top of my vanity. I put my most used necklaces on the furthest hook with the others empty for anything else. Inside my little drawers I’m keeping new makeup bits that need reviewing on the blog before I use them. I then put the mirror above my IKEA desk and arranged my other acrylic storage under that next to my jukebox and crystal collection. I like how this looks so far and I’m hoping to get the painting done soon so please excuse the poor painting and holes in the wall. 

I also purchased a Selfie Ring Light for my iPhone as I’ve heard it’s not only great for selfies but for taking pictures and brightening them up during the colder and darker months which is perfect for Instagram. I’m yet to test this out but will let you know how this goes.
