New Year is Here!

Happy New Year you beautiful bunch!

At this time of year, lots of people and bloggers (not that bloggers aren't people) will be posting about their "New year, new me" mentality... which is great, but I won't be doing that. I've spoken before about my changing relationship with blogging, a bit of a love hate thing, how it was always a hobby for me and I found it hard to adjust when blogging became the world dominating force that it is today. I've seen amazing women come so far and achieve unbelievable things in the blogging world, people that I remember starting up blogs at around the same time as me, people who have turned their blogs into amazing businesses and careers which I'm so proud of them for. But I still just want my blog to be a hobby, a release and a representation of me and I so often wondered throughout 2015 whether there's a place for me. I look back at my earlier posts and it's as if it shows how much I loved posting for you guys and then it became something that I couldn't keep up with.

I've always been so hard on myself for not keeping up and giving Fashion-Fade the attention that it needs and deserves, but then I realised that blogging isn't the only aspect of my life. I also, landed a career as a designer which I've wanted since I was 7 and work long hours to maintain this, styling lookbooks, designing Men's and Womenswear as well as having a boyfriend that lives in London when I'm in sunny old Manchester (for those of you that aren't familiar with Manchester, it's not sunny...ever) as well as traveling all over the world for business and pleasure and trying to find some time to blog somewhere in between.

So this year, the only goal that I'm setting is to not be so hard on myself, to appreciate how far I've come as a person, not just with blogging and how I maybe needed a step back from blogging to realise that... and that's OK... Who knows, maybe 2016 will be the year that I can set a better balance and bombard you all with posts!

So yeah, in 2016, my advice, is don't be so hard on yourself, give yourself a break and just try and be the happiest you can be. If you can throw some resoltions in there too, then GO YOU! You're more commited than I am and I respect that.

Massive 2016 love to you all
