Bad news and pre-hiatus notice!

Saturday, August 24, 2013

I know I said I'll post every other day, I've done a good job up until now but this time I have more than a valid reason! 

I was unlucky enough to bump into these low life bummers after work who must have thought it would've helped their get rich quick scheme by stealing from me. My whole bag was stolen and I was left with a few scrapes, scratches and bruises so instead of blogging I've been trying to recover the important stuff I lost as well as getting some rest.

This made me grateful for the people who care about me and I'm happy that they were only aiming for my valuable items than anything else. Those could be replaced but I was most annoyed about my glasses. They've not only robbed me of my personal items but also my vision. I've been wearing the remaining contacts I have in my drawers since and will have to do so until my new glasses come which after all the fees have added up cost me a bomb too! My eyes are very strained and tired, even my opticians said so which is holding me back from working on my laptop and that includes blogging.

Other than that, that morning before work I accidentally knocked over my cup of tea. Want to know what got wet? My camera! One of the essentials to blogging! I thought it would've been fine since it was just a little more than a few drops that hit it but after messing with my camera just now I'm seeing problems with the camera screen. Now that I have no camera to work with I'll be forced to have a break after posting all that I've lined up for you.

This means that other than my glasses, phone, personal cards and a few other items, I also have to replace my camera. ££££££! Lucky I currently have a part time job and an active Swagbucks account to help me cover for my loss but it's the fear and shock that needs time to overcome.

So everyone please be more alert! Make sure you don't show any of your belongings and take out your earphones when walking home especially if it's dark and quiet. Ask a family member to pick you up if possible. Be more aware of your surroundings and who's behind you! 

Thanks for understanding and everyone stay safe!

Anyone recommend any good cameras within the £50-£200 price range that is suitable for nail blogging?

    Thanks Pang! I'm almost fully healed physically and emotionally. The worst thing was it wasn't even anywhere unfamiliar, it was right outside my house so everyone should always be alert because you never know who you'll come across. Things will get better though :) x
