A Little Life Update

Life really has been hectic lately & because of that my blog has taken the brunt of it. I started my blog to write about my life and the things I enjoy, I've always enjoyed doing this but sometimes my life and my love for blogging clash. It feels like forever since I sat down and spoke about my life and the things that have been happening. 
At the beginning of October, myself and Tom found ourselves having an impromptu date night. We were both just feeling a little peckish and popped down the road for a Carvery, but something about that night has stuck with me. We got to spend some quality time together with no interruptions and spoke about so many things, it just filled me with joy. Last month also marked the year anniversary to my graduation, an achievement everyone should be excited for. Especially for me, I felt this was something to mention. If you know me closely or even been a long time read of See The Stars, you may be aware of the struggles I had throughout my three years at university. To say I disliked my studies would be an understatement. I almost dropped out more times that I can remember, but I made some life long friends & now have the certificate to show for everything I managed. I'll always remember how challenging I found it but will always be proud of myself for getting to the finish line. 
Something we all can for granted sometimes is our friendships. Last month I spent some valuable time with my besties, met up with some old friends and finally got to see my closest friend for the first time in months. Now all you British readers will understand and appriecate the beauty of the 'Wetherspoons evenings' grab your friends, find the perfect sitting area, ordering a cheap beer & burger and drinking the evening away. Perfect...I'm pretty sure I've done this a few too many times last month and I'm not complaining!! 
Remember THIS post a few weeks ago? I talked about wanting to take the plunge and get my hair cut. I FINALLY did it!! Since these, I've added highlights to my hair, it's not perfect but it's getting there. I love having the shorter fuller cut, I feel it's suddenly given my hair that little bit more life it needed...yet, I'm still too lazy to style it every day, ha! 
One of the most heartbreaking things happened to my family two weeks ago. Our family dog passed away. Paddy was only 8 years old and a total energetic dog, we've been given details as to what happened but everything still seems a little blurry. He truly was the family's best friend and I can't even begin to tell you the pain we're all going through, we all admit we knew the day was coming but when it's so sudden it can really hit you hard. It's been a couple weeks now, his last day with us really sticks in my mind and I miss the little things about him being in the house but I'm also remembering the good things and to keep smiling for everyone else. And for everyone who think's staffies are bad dogs are truly mistaken. 
On from the sad to the exciting. Just a week after loosing Paddy me and my boyfriend went on a planned trip to Disney. Still feeling de-flatted from the week's sad news I still had the most magical time. Anxiety & sickness took place majority of the holiday which was a little upsetting but I still had the best time. I've got so many photos to sort out, so keep an eye out for up-coming posts.

    1. Eeep thank you!! Putting it up is a little struggle so I wear it down so much now.
      Thank you! It did so much, I'd hope it would distract me rather than me being sad throughout the week we were away!

  2. Sorry to hear about the loss of your lovely dog - you're so right that staffies are not 'bad dogs'! It's the OWNERS who make the dogs what they are. Sounds like you still managed to enjoy Disney though, and your haircut is gorgeous - the shorter length really suits you!

    1. Thank you. He's already missed so much and will continue to be missed forever. He was never a bad dog, just not everyone saw him that way which really upsets me now!
      I had the most amazing time, thank you!!

  4. Went through something similar myself recently... sometimes you just need to take a break from blogging when things are getting too hectic. I'm a perfectionist as well, so if I'm going to blog I want to do it properly, and not be distracted or half-arsed about it.

    A little break is sometimes very much needed so you can focus on other areas in your life, and you always end up coming back refreshed and eager to write again :)

    PS Sorry to hear about your dog, that must have been awful :(
