Whoops.. I'm still here!
My name is Charlotte... I'm only joking- I haven't been away that long. I haven't posted in a while and it's been gnawing at me so I thought I would get you up to speed with what I've been up to!
So in the past month or so, I've been to see my parents (they live abroad), bought myself a domain, progressed with a couple of personal/client projects and have been to a wedding.
I want to start by going through some decisions I have made in the past few weeks which have helped me and my mind space a lot. I bought my domain name, which seemed like such a huge step for me and getting my s**t together finally. Sometimes I only need the smallest push to get the ball rolling and then I'm on my way. A domain name isn't much, but it's certainly the start of something big.
The first decision I made once I got a hold of the domain was that once I have my current projects out of the way and completed, I am taking from (whenever that is) until December 2018 to concentrate on my own projects and work on my portfolio and website. I have a very limited amount of time on an evening and I have a list as long as my arm of project ideas I just want to jump into. So once my current activities come to an end, that's what I will be concentrating on. I'm sure you will be in on all of those as one of the 'projects' will be growing this blog and making it into the form I see in my head. It's all exciting up there, I just need to show you all what is in there.
The second decision I made was obviously to grow my blog and get more involved. If you follow my Instagram you'll see that I was invited to join in and review a new gym experience with Heatcamps. I've already been to 2 sessions so far and I can already tell you I'm hooked. There will be another post in the near future with my full experience on there so keep an eye out! So in order to experience more and make some friends in my area (location and niche) I need to dedicate more time to my blog and hopefully get stuck into this wonderful industry.
I have taken up yoga again, thanks to a couple of amazing friends I have from back home, and it's helping me immensely. The stretching is helping my healing times after my gym sessions and also with my mindset- allowing my mind to be quiet for a small amount of time. I'm taking a bigger interest in my mind and how I talk to myself and how I process things, again I will be sharing these on the blog in the near future (I really need to get a calendar on the go..). This blog was intended to show my art and design work but also to share things I'm doing with my life so I can look back and see how much I am doing even if my head says I'm not.
Another thing I've done this month is go to my friends wedding! She was so beautiful and her DIY theme was just amazing. It was a pleasure to be invited, and I had such a blast. It's been fun hearing her planning it all and seeing it all in the flesh/ribbons and love hearts. It makes me wonder what I will be like one day when I plan my own.. I've definitely got ideas!
Here's a cheeky little GIF I made of them and their first dance. I wish I had taken a burst but I'd had a drink or few by this point..
There isn't a lot to report on really but I just wanted to share what I've been up to with a couple of snaps.
What have you been up to in the past month or so? I'd love to hear!
