5 things I cannot live without

Hello! I’m back!
I’ve recently taken a little break from my blog – not for any particular reason other than I’m now back to work, working full time. I’ve taken the last month or so off to just adjust to working full time again as I had 5 months off during the pandemic!

I hope everyone is well and safe. For my first blog post back I want to do a fun light hearted post, nothing too deep. I hope you enjoy reading.

5 Things I cannot live without

  1. Makeup
    For me personally a world without makeup would be a sad one. Only because I love doing my makeup as I feel it’s a creative outlet for me, I enjoy the colours and vibrance of it all.

2. Chocolate
This one is pretty self explanatory right?? I mean who doesn’t love chocolate! You can eat it when you’re sad or happy, a win win! I think if I had to live without it, I wouldn’t be as nice as I am! At the moment I am loving the M&M Crispy chocolate bar- oh my god, its a dream! Still yet to try the terry’s white chocolate range, let me know if you’ve tried it and what you think!

3. Family
Pretty obvious again but family is a massive one for me, I’m so lucky that I have such a loving, caring family. I can never understand sometimes how people don’t see their family or aren’t close to them at all, then I have to remind myself that not everyone in this world is nice and sometimes you have to distance yourself from toxic people – family or not.

4. Career
This one may or not be a strange one for some, depends on what you value in life! For me, my career has always been very important to me and I have a lot of goals for the future, things I want to achieve and ultimately climb the ladder. I had a sense of what it would be like to not have a career or a job during lockdown when I was furloughed for so long, I can honestly say it was horrible and I didn’t enjoy it whatsoever! It made me realise that my career is so important to me and gives me so much satisfaction in life.

5. Independence
Another big one to me – I think I also realised this during lockdown…it is so important to me to be independent. One thing I know about myself is that I hate relying on people – before I passed my driving test, I had to of course rely on family and friends for lifts and as much as I was thankful for them taking time out of their day, I hated waiting around and being late for things because it wasn’t in my control. When I was furloughed, I felt like I had my independence taken away and it was so hard to deal with on a daily basis. I just wanted to do what I wanted and be in control of my life. I also understood the seriousness of the pandemic and the need to keep others safe but you can’t help feeling a certain way.

I know I said at the beginning of this post that it would be fun and lighthearted – and then we got a little deep at the end but thats the joys of writing – you never know where your mind will take you!

I really enjoyed writing this post and I hope you enjoyed reading it!

Hope to be back very soon with another blog post.

Let me know in the comments below some of the things you couldn’t live without!
