Congrats guys! We’ve made it through 2020; the year of lockdowns, corona virus and netflix binging. And I have to say, about bloody time. Ok. I get it. Corona Virus and all the terrible things it has brought isn’t going to instantly go away but for me, the beginning of 2021 sparks a new hope that things are going to slowly get better from here. (Also, how strange to be back blogging in 2021!)
I opened my beauty salon in November 2019 after working from home for SO long. I have to say…what a terrible year to start a high street business. I’ve been shut down for 5 months, had to fight to gain some financial support from the Government due to being a new business and needed to take on another job just to help support myself through a horrific year. I have to say though.. I’ve enjoyed every minute of the rollercoaster and if Shade.Beauty has managed to survive through 2020, I’m excited to see how we do in 2021.
Thanks to all the ‘rona chaos, I’m feeling more positive, productive and empowered to make 2021 a year to rave. One of the big things I’ve decided to get back to is blogging. Just a few years back I was blogging regularly, making a decent income from my little space on the internet and loving all the new challenges and learning curves that came with having a blog.
Through 2020 my focus has been so heavily focused on making my business a success that I’d completely forgotten about my little blogging hobby and that makes me really sad. I’ve been so busy binge reading blogs (in particular Reinventing Neesha and Jenny In Neverland) and it’s inspired me all over again! So here’s bringing back blogging in 2021! Expect lots of blog content, videos and many more surprises I have up my sleeve. Trust me, there’s going to be loads and you’re going to want to stick around for some of them!
With all the negatives of last year, I’m so grateful to the universe that although some of my nearest and dearest suffered from Corona Virus, they all made a speedy recovery.
