I started NancyLostinLife at a time during one of the most challenging times of my life. After over two years of blogging and being in the blogging community, I feel like it’s time to ask myself where I want to go from here, blog-wise. Truthfully, I don’t know. I enjoy the blogging community … Continue reading What is the future of NancyLostinLife?
First of all, Happy New Year. I hope you all had a lovely holiday season even if you don’t celebrate any specific event. 2017 was a rollercoaster of happiness and stress.

I’m pretty sure no one is truly ready for adulthood. What even is an adult: financial independence, moving out of your parents, leaving education? Who the fuck knows! I do know that life is messy and when I decided to leave my university course a few weeks in and enter the “real world” … Continue reading Adulting
My parents have always been a little different from many others, well my whole family really. When my family and I went on holiday a few years ago it was my mum, aunt, second cousin, one of my nephews and myself.
