Taking a Break
- Friday, 08 June 2012
Hello hello beautiful ones,
It's been such a lovely day so we decided to take the dogs to a doggy park for a bit of doggy fun. I actually remembered to wear mosquito repellent this time and RESULT!!! Zero bites today baby. Chubbi and Domo actually learnt to swim today which was sooo adorable. I vlogged it for you guys so I'm not going to spoil how they acted in the water. But yeah, swimming must've took a lot of energy out of them because they are completely wiped out now. Chubbi is actually sleeping inside my suitcase right now. Must want me to take her back home with me. One day Chubbi! I'll bring you and Domo back home and we can live happily ever after =D
Only a couple more days and I'll be in Northern Ireland again. Home sweet home. I spent the past hour packing and honestly, I spend more time & effort packing my makeup bag rather than the clothes I'll be wearing to UK. I'm doing my big sister's makeup for her big day along with the bridesmaids so I'm bringing much more than I normally would. The makeup bag is heavy!
I also wanted to write a post mainly to let you guys know that I probably won't be making videos for the next 2 weeks for my beauty channel. I love making videos but sometimes, it's nice to take a break for yourself. Every so often, I like to step out of the Youtube world because there is just so much more to life than "beauty". Sometimes, we can feel worn out because we're out of inspiration or motivation and it ends up stressing us but all you really need is some rest. A bit of time to yourself and you can be restored again and ready to kick ass lol. For me, whenever I feel like I'm under pressure to make content- I make myself stop. I always tell myself "Nobody is rushing you but yourself". I love making videos. I love the process and if stressing is going to ruin the process for me then it isn't worth it because something is wrong.
Since I also make a living from Youtube, some people may ask "If it's your job, can you afford to take time off?". Yes, because I don't live to work. I think too many of us can just get too caught up with work. It's always a matter of "I'll be happy when I do well for my exams. I'll be happy when I get a job. I'll be happy when I get a promotion. I'll be happy when I get a pay rise" and it goes on. Happy is NOW.
Work is important because we need to pay the bills but it's important you find time to yourself as well. I love Youtube and I love being able to connect with my followers all but my family is important to me as well. I only see them a handful of times a year and I want to soak up as much time with them as possible. So for the next 2 weeks, I want to focus COMPLETELY on other subjects in life. Nothing beauty or fashion related. Beauty & Fashion is fun because we get to express ourselves but again, it's all about yourself right? It's time for me to step out of the 'ME' zone. Believe it or not, yes we CAN contritube to something greater than ourselves.
I hope you guys don't take it wrong when I say I'm so excited about taking time off. I am looking forward to reconnecting with my family, friends and most importantly myself. I have a pile of books downloaded on my iPad and I can't wait to get lost in reading whilst chilling my back garden with a nice cold drink. I will still be vlogging for you guys. Nice, casual and easy going videos for my vlog channel. But guys, remember this - it's OKAY to take time off for yourself. You would be amazed with what it can do for you and people around you.
I will continue to update the website as often as I can =) Blogging is therapy to me and I will make sure I'll keep you guys updated with pictures and daily life in the Bubz household. Yey for more random silliness that my Granny Bubz gets up to!
Let's end the diary entry with an adorable Vlog video of Chubbi & Domo learning to swim. Cuteness overload. I'm going to miss them so so much for the next 2 weeks but I know they will be taken great care of. Doesn't Chubbi look like a baby seal?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I can't believe it's Friday already. Time is FLYING.
Much love, Bubz xx
