Blog Evaluation.

If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll have realised that a little while ago I took a short two week break from blogging - This wasn't really intended but with moving house & having loads of odds and ends to tidy up, It just kind of happened. In these two weeks I've had a lot of time to think & evaluate my blog - And even though I'm immensely proud of my little space on internet, I feel it's slipping into a direction of which I didn't really intend on going. 
I started my blog back in February to document different budget orientated OOTD's, fashion inspiration & hauls. Without realising however, over the last month especially, I've been blogging about everything and anything, which isn't really my style and looking back doesn't really fit with my blog - I'm normally way to organised, have a slight case of OCD & stick to exactly what I say I'm going to do. I love reading lifestyle posts and tags from other bloggers & having a bit of a nosey into their lives but with my slice of internet I want it purely to be budget fashion based, possibly with a few beauty posts popped in for good luck (I haven't decided on this one yet, I'm a bit of a beauty novice as you'll know but that doesn't stop me loving makeup)
I'll more than likely still document my daily shenanigans over InstagramGoogle+ and Twitter but with regards to blog posts I'm going to be narrowing it down & cutting these bits out.

After participating in various Twitter chats I've come to realise I'm one of very few bloggers who doesn't plan my posts, as much as I love being organised, I'm very 'willy nilly' when it comes to posting. I'll publish maybe three/four times a week but I think I need a little injection of organisation to pull my blog posts together & give it a much more professional edge. This week I'm going to be working on my blog layout, scheduling future posts & catching up on the backlog of emails I've received over the last few weeks... I'm gonna be a busy lady!! 

I've also taken the plunge in setting up a second blog! Dum dum duuuum! I studied Interior Design at Teesside University & it's been a huge passion of mine for as long as I can rememeber. I've started 'Claire McPartland Interiors' another little slice of internet where I will be posting my portfolio, interior inspirations & finishing touches. It's only new so I'd be absolutely over the moon if you could check it out & have a nosey at my design work.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this? Has your blog taken an unlikely direction 

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.
