I’m Back!

Well hello there it has been 12 days since I last sat down to write a blog post and it all feels completely alien to me! I had the most wonderful time in Egypt it was warm and relaxing and I’ve come back with a glorious tan! I have been back to work today for the first time in almost 2 weeks after having some well-deserved time off either side, after not having any time off properly since Christmas.

You’ll have to bear with me for a few days, I feel like I’ve landed back to England with not just a bang but a big burning crash too – I have no inspiration for any blog posts as my brain has been switched off from the world for what feels like forever. I’d planned on doing a holiday look-book and makeup looks from my holiday but after getting an eye infection whilst there which made me look like Quasimodo, I didn’t feel like wearing makeup – let alone trying to take nice pictures of myself!

I picked up a few bits in Duty free but sadly only had about 10 minutes to shop as the airport was so busy when we arrived it took over an hour of queuing to drop off our bags and another half hour to get through security, and have just placed quite a large post-holiday blues Feel Unique order! So I’ll hopefully have those up this week.

It feels very weird to have not blogged over the past few weeks, and feels even more strange to have missed a few posts over the past few weeks as I have been daily blogging since January.

In the mean time here’s a few snaps from holiday…

      Thanks Karen! You can say that again, feel tired still and we landed Friday – can’t even blame jet lag as there’s only an hour difference! Xx

        Oh bless 🙁 I’m sure it’ll take you a good few weeks to get back to normal, plenty of rest and tea – tea solves everything in my opinion! lol

    Welcome back again! It’s completely understandable to not feel inspired to blog after a vacation – I felt the same recently too. Takes time to readjust – don’t push it. 🙂
    I would love to visit Egypt one day! Looks wonderful.
