Well readers, if you are still there after my 7 month absence, thank you very much, but if you're not, who can blame you? Whilst I am sure some of you were relieved that I have stopped clogging up your newsfeeds on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ with my ramblings about fashion, I feel that I owe an explanation for my impromptu disappearance to those of you who have continued to remind me that I haven’t blogged for a while, as if I wasn't aware of this.
My disappearance has been down to two things. Firstly, I got a new job; no I did not replace a certain stony faced women at American Vogue, but it was a career goal so I felt that it deserved my full attention. The second was that I bought a house, and for those of you out there who have gone through this hideous process, you will be able to appreciate why my blog has been neglected.
Since my life has had somewhat of a revamp in the last 7 months I feel that it is only appropriate that my NE StyleSmart should too!
My first love will always be fashion but as my life is evolving (a PC way to describe getting older!) I just don’t have the money or the time to spend every weekend buying new clothes. I now have a house to decorate, a garden to maintain, a job that I actually enjoy and let's not forget the husband!
Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t to say that I am a nest of tables away from middle aged hell (for those of you who don't know - I wasn’t until I bought a house - these are essentially the Russian doll of the table world; smaller tables within tables) only ever to be used when guests need to somewhere to put their cup of tea! I also nearly came out in hives on a recent trip to the local retail park, where I nearly suffocated in a sea of linen trousers and ¾ length shorts.
Fashion will still feature heavily on my blog, it just won’t be the only thing. You can expect to see interior design, food, pubs, days out and events, but one thing that hasn’t changed and will never change is where all of this is happening and that is Newcastle Upon Tyne!
