Life update: You know I'm stressed when my nails look rank



No matter how stressful life gets I will never EVER miss a manicure appointment, and well, I haven’t had the chance to go to one in three weeks.

Boo who, what a first world problem. Of course, my words are sarcastic but they hold some truth. How outgrown my nails are indicate to myself that I need some ‘me time’. It’s the one thing I do for myself once a fortnight and it feels so good to just sit there in silence or have a catch up with my lovely nail technician. It’s escapism from my reality. I love sitting back in that chair and listening to his life updates.

FYI, yes, my nails are popping in the photos but they were photographed quick time after they were first done. Now they're all grown out and not as pointy. Sigh.


I thought I would just briefly update you on why I’ve not been that active on VavaViolet and well, sometimes life just gets in the way. 



January has so far been extremely stressful and without going into it too deeply I have been dealing with some pretty hefty stuff. It caused me to miss a few days of work which then made me stress out even more. It’s just been a great big ball of stress. However, it’s looking up now and that is what I’m focusing on. Usually I dust stress off of my shoulders and carry on my day, but we all have our limits and mine have been tested this month.



On a more positive note, I’ve started booking myself in for my journalism NQJ exams which will enable me to be a Senior Reporter. Weirdly I am excited to get stuck into a textbook and go to a library with a coffee and some snacks – now that is something I never ever thought I would say. Well, actually, I think I’m more excited for the pay rise that comes after I’ve passed the exams. However, now I need a revision buddy who will come with me to the library. Any takers?

More regular posts will assume from now on but a YouTube video did go up on my channel yesterday where I shared a story time from when my Tinder date hid me in a cupboard. It was traumatic.
