I've been putting off writing this blog post but I think the time has come for me to be honest with you all so that I can move on to the next chapter in my life.
There's no easy way to say it so I'm going to jump straight in - I'm taking a break from being a blogger. Not necessarily forever, but I'm taking a hiatus to reassess and I'm open to a future where I might return to it (although in a different capacity) or I might never come back to it at all.
It's been an amazing journey of 5 and a half years and I've loved so many aspects of it along the way. I've loved meeting new people, connecting with like minds, being able to work with brands I love, learn new skills and gain opportunities that never would have been available to me otherwise.
However, I'm currently at a turning point in my life and I am not sure where blogging fits in anymore. I'm 26 years old and not in the same place I was when I started this as a 20 year old. Running around on weekends posing for outfit photos isn't as fun as it once was and the further I get through my 20's the more I realise my priorities are changing.
I work in digital marketing all day long and I love having a career I can throw myself into - so when I get home from work I'm not as eager as I once was to spend more long hours on the computer.
That being said, I am not disappearing completely. I will still be extremely active on my instagram and twitter and if you'd like to still be connected, please follow me there.
Thank you so much for being a part of this journey and for sticking with me as this blog has evolved and grown over the years. It's been such an amazing part of my life and even though I feel good about my decision to move forward, I know there will be so much I will miss as well.
I am keeping my URL in case I find myself wanting to come back to this in the future, but for now I know it's best for me to take a break and enjoy other parts of my life.
P.S Shout out to my amazing husband for all his help with my blog as well - for learning DSLR photography for me, patiently running around shooting pictures and never complaining. I appreciate all you've done J! You guys can also follow him on instagram @jemyboy7.
