So my last blog post was back on January 18th. It seems like not so long ago I was meeting up with my photographer on Saturday mornings, shooting two or three looks, eagerly awaiting for the photos to hit my inbox and then spending hours going through them to whittle 50 images down to 5.
Why did I stop? Well in the beginning of the year I had foot surgery. Finally my aggressive growth spurts as a child and many many years of classical ballet finally caught up with me. I had a combination of a heightened metatarsal bone as well as a metatarsal fracture on my left foot. The surgery went well but I was instructed to stay off my feet for 3 weeks. You would think laying on the couch all day would make me blog like a mad person but nope.
Have I missed the days of blogging? Not really. (I know, I know, what kind of blogger am I?) I have to say, I got my life back a little bit. My weekends, especially Sunday’s aren’t spent working on a post from sunrise to sunset. I can actually get out and go to brunch, attend a fun event, or simple just rest. It’s a beautiful thing.
Not only have I not posted looks, I haven’t looked at or commented on my favorite blogs either. Granted I loved it, that also consumed a lot of my time. Do I miss that? Yes I do. I really enjoy looking at other individuals styles. I always found that fun. Sometimes I would see a post and think, that style is so not me but she really rocks it. Other times, I fell in love with a look or simply felt inspired by it.
That all being said, I think I’m starting to get that fire back. Recently I’ve been more active on insta & twitter. I think what really put a flame under my bottom, my upcoming trip.
We leave this weekend to go on holiday and I’m very excited. Off to Sweden & Norway we good. 10 days of glorious fun. How could I miss taking photos of my daily looks while strolling the street of Gamla Stan or while traveling through the fjords of Norway. I think this was the kick in the pants that I needed.
A big thank you to my fellow bloggers who never stopped visiting my blog & those you continued to comment. Yes, I can see who comes to my page, what country they are from, through what source whether it be another fashion page, search terms or goggle image. (Having status transparency on my blog, worth every penny). I’d like to give a big hug and say thank you to Mojisola at Mojintocuh.com for private messaging me not once but twice to see how I was doing. Kisses!
*I will be posting soon*
