What's been going on?

Where do I start? Firstly, I apologise for being on a blogging hiatus life just got too hectic! I feel I start every post apologising lately! I truly am sorry I really miss blogging. Anyway the last 6 weeks have been utter hell for me! My Dad went into hospital for routine surgery but ending up having serious complications and spending 12 days in ICU. We nearly lost him he was so sick. During all of this I was completing my finals for my masters. So with trying to study and visiting my Dad in hospital my little blog had to take a back seat. Thankfully my Dad is on the road to recovery now and even though it is a slow process he has come on leaps and bounds in the last 2 weeks. I also finished my exams last Friday! Hallelujah!

So, a couple of things have happened since I have been gone. Firstly, my brother kindly commandeered my blog and gave it a whole redesign. What do you think of the new look? It still needs to be tweaked and some finishing touches put to it. But now that I have more free time I will be able to work on it. Secondly I was featured in an Irish magazine Xpose. I have put the little article in the above pictures. It was my OOTD from my Back To Black post. It made my day when I seen my blog published for the first time ever!

Finally, I am typing this post from partly sunny Portugal! Yes, I was lucky enough after 6 weeks of torture to get to go on a weeks holiday to Portugal. I have been here since Saturday and the weather isn't the best but it is meant to pick up. Due to the poor weather I have done a bit of shopping so my next post will be a haul. I picked up some European skin care products so I will have reviews coming on them.

Thank you all so much for sticking around in my absence and I promise to get back into regular blogging soon as I am over the worst of my masters course. I just have to complete 2 weeks of summer school and have a few essays to write and I will be done and dusted.
