Hi Everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. Ours consisted mostly of 4 hour naps, sleeping in, leisurely walks at Target and Netflix. It’s just what I needed.
Usually I spend most (if not all) Sunday working on the blog. I’ll write, edit, do graphics, etc. Although it seems like a lot of time, it’s never felt like it to me. I look forward to taking pictures and writing. I’ve never felt like I’m giving something up because I spend all day working on Just A Little Blush.
The last couple of weeks however, I’ve been avoiding my blog duties. I haven’t been reading or commenting on other blogs as much, I haven’t taken very many pictures, and I haven’t written any new posts. In fact, I spent a lot of time Friday & Saturday dreading my Sunday blog time.
At first I thought it was just that I didn’t have any topics in mind. But then, I realized that I just need a little break. Although I have several post topics in mind, I don’t feel inspired to write about any of them. This week it suddenly felt like blogging was something I had to do, not something I wanted to do.
I don’t want to write posts just for the sake of having content up, and I certainly don’t want this blog to feel like a chore. Therefore, the only logical conclusion is to take a step back and recharge.
I honestly don’t know how long this little break will be. Maybe it will be a week, maybe it will be a month. But since I’ve shown up here like it’s my job for the last year and a half, I figured the least I could do was let you know what’s up.
If you need me, I’ll be strolling the halls at Sephora and Ulta (probably buying a lot of things I shouldn’t), hanging out with my hubby and Tuna, and finally learning how to use my new camera lens. Maybe a few weeks of trying new makeup without thinking about potential blog posts, taking pictures just for myself, and spending a whole Sunday with my friends is all I need.
In the meantime, follow along on Instagram (#shamelessplug). I’ll even try to post stories more than once a week.
Be back soon!
