Priorities.




It has been a long while since my last post and I have to say it is somewhat nerve wracking being back. I can't exactly pick up where I left off (frankly speaking I wouldn't even know where that was), so I have really been searching my brain for what to write about first. Diving straight in with 'my latest beauty routine' seems a little bit shallow, however, is anyone really interested in hearing everything that has been going on with me during the period away from the blog and social media?! I still can't figure out the thin line between sharing and too much information. 

In the end, I have decided to focus on the present and where I am currently at. The content on these pages has always been influenced by what I find interesting and my personal values. I have noticed that my thought process and priorities are quiet different to what they used to be last year, and my blog will likely reflect that.

My overall values when it comes to organic, ethical, sustainable products and ways of living are still the same, but the things I tend to focus on are a little different. Just to give you an example, when I first started the blog, I was on a journey to find a perfect skincare routine. Now that I have tried so many different brands and product, I can quiet confidently pick out my favourites and I'm definitely less interested in trying something just because it is new on the market. That is not to say that there will no longer be skincare reviews (there are lots of things in my drafts that I haven't been able to share yet and I am still testing some wonderful product well worthy of a mention). It is just that my wish lists seem to be shorter than ever and I would much rather stock up on old favourites. When it comes to skincare I think I am less in the 'discovery mode' and more in the 'time to revisit mode'. With body care on the other hand, I'm still very happily exploring.

In general, I really want to travel more and experience more. I felt so inspired during my visits to Maldives and Scotland, but it isn't really about going somewhere far, more about going to places that are less familiar that will push me out of my comfort zone. Funny thing was, that even when looking at the most magnificent scenery that I have ever been faced with, some of those sites were marred by plastic bags and bottles. It is really scary and upsetting to see how careless people can be. Despite so many programs on mainstream tv raising awareness about recycling and waste reduction, there is still a really long way to go. All the environmental issues have definitely been playing on my mind more than ever.

I'm not really completely sure how all of the above will reflect on the direction that the blog will take, but I hope you will stay with me on the next part of this ever changing journey.
