Back to ME!

Hey Guys, 

Been a while huh? ….. well I am back and I am back with a vengeance and erm a re-brand. Goodbye ‘SugarCoatedNothings’ and hello ‘LIFE OF LIL’ #LOL 

Let me slow down and explain. 

Basically in a nutshell, I lost myself. I lost my way and lost sight of what it is I enjoy. Over time my Blog hasn’t felt like ME anymore or what I originally started back in 2015. 

To me then, my Blog was just a diary, a place for me to share the nitty and gritty of my life. The nitty and gritty that I later learnt we all have in common and can relate too. 

Back when I first created this Blog, I was in a really happy place in my life, I was travelling, having fun and really had the time to focus on me and what I wanted to do. I didn’t even know what blogging was. For me it was just writing, nothing more and nothing less. Over the past 3 years of being back home and re-adjusting back to ‘normal’ life, I started feeling the pressures of life again, getting back into a 9-5 Job to make money and just found myself slipping back into a rut.

All of sudden it felt like I was coming across load’s of Blogger’s online whom I started comparing myself too. I started second guessing myself, questioning my content and trying to fit in. With that, I lost my confidence completely. I stopped writing open posts, I stopped my YouTube Channel and started writing post’s that I felt like I had to, to be relevant over what I enjoy.  I just reverted inwards and kind of hid away. 

Reading old Blog posts, and old comments from people loving my open posts, my silly videos got me thinking ‘WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOING’ ……and honestly I’m done hiding who I am, I’m done having no confidence, I am done not doing what I love. I refuse to sit back and let my passion, and what I enjoy hide away. 

Sugar Coated Nothings was a journey, a lesson, it served it’s purpose. 

LIFE OF LIL is back to basics. Back to me. 

So what can you expect? 

REAL LIFE SHIT. The up’s, the down’s, the awkward, the slightly too much information, the funny, the sad. Just my life, that in turn you may and may not be able to relate too. Maybe you will find it entertaining, maybe you won’t. Love it or hate it, I am going to be doing the real me and I cannot wait to start my new journey – starting right here, right now.

Hello lovely's thanks for stumbling by. If you are a returning reader, thanks for your continuous loving. If you are new here, welcome to the show (and again, thanks for the love) So you are probably on this page to find out the nitty & gritty of me eh? As much as I would love to brag that I am this really cool chick who occasionally fire breathes on the weekends for fun, that would be an awful not even funny lie.  Gosh, introductions- they are kinda awkward huh? No pressure.  My name is Leanne Lilly (more often than not, known and addressed as 'Lil') I am a 25 year old woman on a mission to sprinkle positivity, empowerment, fun and realness onto my fellow human beings.  I have a passion for writing and a love of over sharing with my straight up sally attitude, I embrace my voice & have no fear of sharing it. I guess I have just always had a thing for giving my opinion & expressing my advice. I am an over sensitive, big-hearted, cry baby who is majorly compassionate, understanding and giving, but who also has daily breakdowns, mood swings, & take's no shit. But I will always speak my truth. I suppose there is many aspects to this personality.  With that said it will be no suprise that this is a Mish-Mash Life Style Blog. A Blog that is home to everything and everything. You wouldn't find me in a specific genre, because I do not think you could tie my life down (let alone my personality) to one genre. This is just a Diary if you like of a truth-speaking, real talking girl. It follows my life, my feelings, my funny side (yes, I find myself funny) and all the shit that goes down in-between. And you will probably find a bit of TMI. Often. Sorry in advance.  Disclaimer: I am NOT a grammar goddess, so don't get all grammar police on my ass. (Pretty please) P.s... When I was 7 Year's old, I asked my mum what she thought I would be when I was older "A writer or something to do with writing" - I was FUMING. I wanted to be a pop star. Years on, here I am passionately writing away & loving it. Moral of the story: Mum's are always right.
