And when I say “the last 5 manicures of 2017” it actually means my manicures in the past 5-6 months. I know, my nails and my blog haven’t been my top priorities in the last half of 2017, but for good reason. August was full-on wedding season and also packing for the following 2 months I spent in Paris, while the last 2 months of the year have been all about re-settling into my Bucharest life, catching up with everyone and holidays hype. So here I am on the New-Year’s-Eve Eve doing a recap of my latest manicures.
I’ve been absent quite a while, but honestly this has happened almost all year so you must be used to it by now, haha. If during spring and summer the reason has been the amount of social events I had to attend, now it’s work related. All of you who read my previous post know that I’m currently in Paris for work. I had to be here for two months, one of which has already passed. Seemed like now would be a good time to share a realistic view on what it’s like to live abroad – my realistic view, at least. So here goes.
I feel like all I’ve done all year is make excuses why I haven’t written anything. But believe me, it’s been a pretty hectic year so far and it’s not over yet. Why have I been absent recently? Well, I have a new job that’s more challenging than everything I’ve done so far and what I did for the past month is try to keep my head above water. This is one of the reasons – the other one is the abundance of weddings and parties I have to attend (poor me, right?, haha :D). So you can see how the lack of free time can be a factor in my absence on the blog (or on social media) – I barely have enough time to sleep, let alone do anything else.
