A Change + 5 Under 50

Hi. So you’ll have noticed that I didn’t blog at all last week. In fact, I didn’t post on social media, I wrote not a darn thing, I did nothing. And it was good. I had a truly awful day last Monday that started with me crying in the gym before 6am and my day went downhill from there. In truth, my entire week was fairly shocking. Not because of any one thing, but because it’s so hard to get your week back on track when it starts so badly. And because, if I’m 100% honest with myself – and you, I was just feeling overwhelmed.

This little space has undergone a couple of major changes in the last couple of years, but, even after this post, I haven’t truly felt like it had a soul. The posts I have written in the past that have been about me, my life, the personal ones – they’ve been the ones that I have truly loved writing – and so have you. They’re the ones that people send emails and messages about.

So things are going to change around here. 5 Under 50 is moving to Mondays – because we all need a great start to our week and bargains are a surefire way of making that happen. Tuesdays and Thursday will still be fashion/what I’ve been wearing and interiors/home tours respectively. And on Fridays? Well Fridays are new. I’ll tell you what I’ve been up to in the past week – much like my friend Phoebe does (if you need wedding inspiration, you need to read SYGM on the daily!). I’m thinking I might share what we’ve been eating in the past week/month as I know I love it when Emily and Victoria do that – it always gives me things to add to my list! Would you like that? Oh and I’ll also share my favourites from the previous month on the first Monday of every month. I’ve been thinking about making them videos – thoughts? Anyway, I think I’ve probably rambled enough for today. Let’s get on with 5 Under 50 shall we?

Okay, so that’s 5 Under 50 done! I hope your week is fabulous and full of joy! But before you go can you do me a huge favour? Can you let me know what you’d love to see around here in the comments? Or drop me a note? I’d love to hear from you!
