Remember me? It took a little longer than I thought - but I am back from my unavoidable absence.

The house drama continued much longer than we anticipated - we ended up moving into our new place about a month ago, after five weeks of homelessness (where we lived with James' parents). I've got to say now we are in the house we are very happy - it's wonderful after renting for so many years. It took a couple of weeks to get the internet hooked up and then we went away on holiday. We got back two days ago, so now I've finally got five minutes to sit down and do some much overdue blogging.

When I first realised I'd have to take a break from my site because of the move I was, in some ways, quite relieved. I was so stressed with buying our first house that I just couldn't dedicate the time or energy that I wanted to into this blog, so a break was well needed.

It has also given me an opportunity to reflect on the direction I want the blog to take going forward and my attitude to it.

I'm going to be introducing more regular features. In addition to What I Wore, there will be Lusting After posts dedicated to items I'd love to buy at the minute, Inspiration posts featuring celebrities, friends, fellow bloggers or photographs that have inspired me, plus lots of other beauty and fashion items under the Beauty Fix and Fashion Fix tags.

I'm going to be reaching out to other bloggers to ask some of my favourites whether they'd like to write a guest post for the blog. And I'm going to dedicate more time to commenting on others blogs - as I read so many but don't always comment on what I've read.
Reading back over my posts from the last 18 months I realise that I haven't really 'shown myself' much, although my pictures are all over the blog, in many ways, I'm still quite anonymous. That is going to change. Watch this space.

I'm glad to be back.


  1. Yay!! You are back! Missed you.
    Glad the move went well, and hope you had a lovely holiday?
    Thanks for your congrats, very happy, we are planning for 2013, so we need to get saving and get organising. :) Just want to go dress shopping now.
    Loving the new ideas, and can't wait to see more over the next few months.


  2. Glad to see you back - looking forward to seeing what your blog has in store for us :)


  3. Welcome back and *congratulations*, glad you're all sorted and you managed a well earned holiday too!

    Exciting to hear about all the things planned for Fashion Bandit, sounds awesome.
