So on the off-chance that you noticed I haven't been around much lately, here's the reason why. I just couldn't. And that covered almost everything in my life, but especially blogging.
As someone who already struggles with depression and anxiety, burnout is an old friend, but it hit me hard this time around.
I had no interest in even putting on makeup, nevermind buying it and reviewing it for you guys.
I cancelled both my Pink Parcel and Birchbox subscriptions because they were simply sitting unused on my desk (which wasn't getting much action either).
It's been difficult.
But, I think and I hope, that I'm back now, at least a little bit. I'm wearing makeup for the first time in ages, I'm dressed in something other than workout clothes and my brain isn't a buzzing foggy mess.
So what's it going to look like here on lifeappears.com in the foreseeable future? Well, I'm not going to restart the two subscription boxes I've already mentioned but I am aiming to try out at least one new (to me) subscription box a month, it might be books, tea or gardening focussed, who knows! I'm hoping to write more openly about my issues with both a chronic physical illness and mental health problems, and how I deal with them.
Basically, I'm hoping to lift some of the pressure I was feeling and just making the blog a happy place again!
Know a subscription box or product I should feature? Let me know. Got a book recommendation? Tell me! I want to talk to you guys more so even just a quick hello in the comments or over on instagram/twitter would be a good way to start, right?
See you soon.
