I know it’s been a while since I last posted on the blog and there are about 101 reasons for that, but for your sake I’ll shorten it down to four:
1. We went to Paris (yay!)
2. I got mega-sick once we got back (pneumonia is not fun my friends)
3. My computer and external hard drive decided to kick the bucket simultaneously and I was left with a major “omg I lost all of my pictures/files/life” anxiety and a huge (we are talking quadruple digit) bill to send it all off to a lab to retrieve the data. =/
4. I wanted to re-prioritize. This little break was great for me because it gave me a minute to really re-evaluate what I want for my blog and what it really means to me. Having a “fashion blog” is great, it’s fun, it’s given me an excuse to dress up and experiment with my clothes every day . . . but it’s not all there is to me and frankly I’ve been struggling with devoting so much time to something that only scratched the surface of what my life is truly like. I’ve kind of had a hard time trying to compartmentalize my interests and focus on just one relatively small portion of what I do all day, and at times I struggled to come up with new things to post that I thought people would care about. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve written posts or even taken the time to take pictures for my blog that I ended up deleting because I didn’t think they would fall in line with what everyone wanted to see, which in retrospect is silly because I created this blog as a space for me to express myself, not impress others.
So just a heads up, things will start to look a little different around here. As soon as I get all of the pictures off of said hard drive (R.I.P.) I will be posting a bunch of pictures from our trip to Paris.
As always, thank you so much for those who take the time to read and comment.
