Earth Calling...Emma?

Hey guys.

Its been a while hey? I have a backlog of posts I need to write and post up but I really needed to fill you in on what's been going on first so you don't just think I was abducted my aliens (I wasn't but that'd be awesome if I was...).

You may remember my Casual Pastels post where I mentioned starting my new job. Well I've been working there for over a month now and starting to settle in; I'm a lot more relaxed compared to before and definitely feeling more grown up with this job; I think its mainly to do with the responsibility that's made me grow up and actually have a higher payslip each month has mean't I can actually.. well have a life again and do stuff I want to do and not freak out on the "I have no money to socialise but don't want to always say no and let everyone down" thing.

With starting this job, I work 5 days a week, I spend 4 hours a day travelling to and from work, so I don't have much time in the evenings either, I just want to relax; which means most of my stuff is done on the weekends and what with modelling and events coming up I don't always have time to write up on here or my LiveHealthy blog.

I've also been looking into possibly moving out at some point in the near future, due to the distance I live from work I do want to move nearer, so this has also been taking up a lot of my time.

Update on my weight loss for those interested; since June 1st I have lost 31 pounds in weight which is just over 2 stone. I'm still larger and still plus size. I've been lucky this far to not come under much criticism over losing weight, but I do expect this more with the more weight I lose. I'm losing the weight for myself and no one else, not for industry standards, not because of pressure but because I was no longer happy in my body anymore. For the first time in my life this year I wore crop tops, I gained something and a confidence I had never had before.

I could write a full on essay about why I haven't posted but sometimes its better to just keep it short, and I know my true blog followers understand what life can get like, I can't document every living moment of my life, but I will try and get posts up more regularly.

I do have my UK Plus Size Fashion Week post I need to write up which will be up by the end of October, promise! I also have a few other bits I have planned to post at some point

Much love!
