I'm back!

I'm not really sure why I've been MIA for the last month, but as far as blogging goes, I think I just wasn't feeling it at the time. I think the fact that I have two blogs to write didn't help.. I just lacked inspiration! 
Nothing has really changed in my life - I'm still unemployed, still at home alone practically all day, still kindaa lacking motivation.
I went to a job interview to work at a clothes shop on Monday - clearly not my dream job, but just enough to keep me busy and bring home some extra cash. The interview went well - or so I thought - I'm bilingual so I speak Portuguese and English perfectly, they seemed to like me at the time and all in all I was really convinced they were going to ring me last Wednesday to confirm my position. It's Friday today and still no phone call, so I'm sort of resigning to the fact they found someone better! Oh well... no point dwelling on our "failures". At least I tried!
I decided to go back to blogging, as I missed it dearly, but with a condition : I was definitely going to abandon ONE of my blogs. Which one should I ditch?? The answer was clear, although I've had my Portuguese blog for far longer that this one, I found that here I feel more at "home", I've made more friends and basically feel that people actually read my stuff! :) I don't blog for followers, but it is gratifying to see that more and more people find what I write is interesting enough for them to visit once in a while, whereas in my Portuguese blog I haven't gone past 15 followers in the past 2 years! Now that is sad! 
I don't know if the portuguese are a tougher crowd, if they're simply shy or if I haven't gone around poking their blogs enough.. but in the end two blogs was too much hassle and I'd rather keep this one.

I'm sure you noticed my new blog design and that I've changed its name to "Diary of a Pinkaholic". I figured there was no point having a "Pinkaholic's other diary" if the other diary wasn't in action anymore! I hope you like the changes!

Today we're decorating our Christmas tree, so I'm fairly excited. Let me just put on my "Christmas Party Favourites" CD on, light up our fireplace and its on! I'm such a Christmas lover.. :)


  1. Yay, so glad to see you back! Missed you!! Your blog now looks SO beautiful I am totally jealous - this is kind of the style I'd always hoped mine would be and clearly have failed at!! :(

    I know how you feel with the whole job business. I tried looking for a part time job while I've been at uni but in 4 years I've never got past interviews. Just stay positive!! xxxxx

  2. I awarded you! <3 xxxx

  3. Aww thank you Rachael, it means a lot to me that I was missed! :)
    I'm glad you like the new design, but yours is lovely too! I love the tropical island theme! :P

    I know - we can't lose hope! Good luck to you too dear.

    Thanks for the award babe, I will post about it as soon as I can ;) xx


Thanks for stopping by!♥
