The Wonderer Returns



After almost a year to the day since I wrote my last blog post in November 2015, I’m back.

The past 12 months have made me reflect on many aspects of my life after unexpectedly losing my Dad last June, and after much soul searching I made the hard decision to come away from my blog and focus on other parts of my life for a while. Everything had become all consuming, and my heart just wasn’t into reviewing products and writing blog posts.

I’ve certainly missed having a writing outlet over that time, however in March this year, I decided to take a big step forward with my business and opened a physical shop and treatment room in my home town to run alongside my online boutique.

My feet have literally not touched the ground over the past 9 months! It’s been amazing fun and I have enjoyed updating my holistic therapy training, and being able to help my customers with their needs. It’s been an empowering time for me and there are times when I need to pinch myself to prove that I’m actually doing it.

Now that life seems to be finding a more balanced rhythm, I’ve been looking again to this blog. I have a couple of fabulous River Cottage Events to share with you over the coming days and I will also be sharing a fabulous Gluten Free course I attended earlier this year at River Cottage HQ that my lovely hubby and girls bought me for Mother’s Day. You’ll know from reading the blogger event I attended last September that I have a great love for River Cottage and as I’m only 30 minutes away it’s almost on my doorstep. Lucky me!

This blog is also going to get a makeover. I’m in the process of getting things sorted so Sophia’s Choice will look a touch smarter. After 4 years of blogging, your blog goes through lots of transitions and this is the next phase.

As I move forward, the focus on this blog will be less on product reviews. I have lots of ideas whirring through my head, so I hope you will remain loyal readers and enjoy the new blog posts I bring you.

With only 5 weeks until Christmas, my attention has very much been focussed on getting everything ready in my boutique. Creating Christmas window displays and stocking up on beautiful gifts has been fun. I keep seeing lots of Christmas Gift focussed blog posts from my fellow green bloggers popping up on social media. It really is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas now, one of my favourite times of the year.

I’ll sign off for now, however I hope you’ll pop back again soon to see what new posts I have in store for you.


Until next time x
