Life // Taking Stock

Laura Laura Blog - Lifestyle Blog

It’s been ages since I did one of these taking stock posts – I really enjoy doing them – if you haven’t done one before I highly recommend giving it a go.  

I find it helps centre me and when I reflect on them It’s always so refreshing to see how honest I am with myself and this blog. I want all my readers to know that I’m a big advocate for no bullshit blogging, and when i’m writing my posts a lot of the time they are brain honest dumps that get put up straight away.  A friend of mine has recently rebranded her blog to be more lifestyle and all about no bullshit. I’m stalking a leaf out of her book in this post (and previous ones, by being completely open and honest about what I’m doing and where my head is at – so you’ll have to excuse embrace the swearing.

P.S. Yep – the photos in the background are from our wedding day.

  • Job hunting? Join. the. club. time off is fun though; I’m loving it! Also, I fell in love with diet lemonade a few months ago and then I got terrible stomach pains and my doctor told me that sugar free drinks are the worst things for abdo pain and that makes me so sad because whenever I want a really cold refreshing drink I want Sprite Zero and I have to stop myself. The end.
