A Little Life & Blog Update

August 17, 2018 4 Comments

You may or may not have noticed that there hasn't been as much content here on the old blog recently and its down to a few reasons really. One is personal. I recently separated with my husband. I've briefly mentioned it on my Instagram but not gone in to too much detail, suffice to say its been a tricky old few months. It has meant I've had a lot going on and therefore sadly the blog has kinda taken a back seat. The second reason is professional. I've been doing a lot more freelance photography recently and so I've been focusing on these projects mostly, as lets be honest they are paying the bills. Thirdly, I have been branching out a lot more in to YouTube. I relaunched my channel earlier in the year and I've really enjoyed making content including fashion videos, diy's and hauls. Its pretty new to me but I'm so far enjoying the real interaction you get on there too. I've had lots of subscribers come over from Emma's channel after we did a "Emma Hill Buys My Primark Haul" video and her subscribers are just the nicest bunch and its been a really positive thing for me right now. But I wanted to say to all you lovely readers, who come back time and time again that I haven't gone completely and to let you know my plans for the future of Bang On Style.

So I want to continue posting DIY videos on my YouTube but sharing them on here too for those of you that love my DIY posts. I'm still going to write my Olympus Pen and Photography posts as they work really well here on the blog and I know so many of you love them and refer back to them. I'm also still going to continue to write beauty and lifestyle reviews like my Glossybox reviews as I know many of you really enjoy these kinds of posts and find reviews so helpful especially when making beauty purchase decisions.

I'm hoping in the future months to write about starting again after my breakup. I wont be going into the details of why or how we broke up but I want to share my journey starting again, moving back into rented, dealing with financial issues etc and I want to do it to try and help anyone else dealing with the same things in life and hopefully write about it with a bit of honesty and humour too. So that will be something coming to the blog soon. I'd very much like the blog to be reserved for posts that either help, educate or are just that bit more personal.

When I've moved house I'm also going to feature lots of home content about how to decorate a rented home and lots of tips and tricks as well as hopefully some room tours. So there may be maybe less blog content a week but they'll be lots more content overall my channels and of course you will always find me over on YouTube and Instagram too!!

So that's just a bit about where I'm going with everything and a bit of an update. Thank you so much for all your comments and for all of you that have read my blog for so many years now.


Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a lovely sunny weekend too.

    Hi Debs. I know you mentioned your separation briefly so I was aware and I’m sending you much love and strength. Because no matter what the circumstances surrounding it, it’s always a very difficult time. I love all of your posts and will continue to read on here and also watch your videos. You have to do what feels right for you and I know your followers will understand that. We are also in a rented property at the moment, for various reasons, so I look forward to your rented interior posts whenever they come. Take care of yourself.
