Time for a little catch up

Time for a little catch up! You may (or may not) have noticed that things have been a little quiet around the blog for a few days. I am sorry about that, as I always feel a pang of guilt when I take a few days away from my usual almost-daily posting schedule. It’s something I’ve pretty much constantly maintained since I first started over six years ago. But every now and then, you get a bit of a lull in inspiration, or non-blog life just gets in the way. That’s a bit of what’s happened lately for me so last week I decided I need a bit of a break and to take a few days away from putting myself under pressure to blog. As I know that when I go through a bit of a blogger block, I don’t put the best posts out and it just makes it worse. So I decided a break was a better option.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was also off to Amsterdam for the weekend, so no blogging was going to be happening and I just wanted to relax and have a good time. I was there for the hen do of one of my best friends so afraid I don’t have a huge amount of cultural experiences to share with you but I did have a lovely time! Amsterdam is a gorgeous city and I definitely want to go back – I’ve been there a couple of times before. Once was about 10 years ago (eep!) and then I went for a flying visit with DKNY in 2013. Every time I go I am totally wowed by how pretty it is. Plus this time around I spotted there’s a cheese museum… so I clearly need to go back! I actually also need to go back to have bitterballen, which I managed to totally miss out on this time around too.

But, weekend in Amsterdam and a bit of a blog break happening. I’m hoping that blogging spark will make it’s way back as soon as possible – I think right now is simply a case of life getting in the way and I feel a little distracted from this side of things. And I do always say, I’d rather not put a post up than post something really not that great. So if things are a little sparse at the moment, I’m sorry. Fingers crossed will be back on blogging form soon! Until then, there are of course tons of older posts you’re welcome to catch up on! Or if there’s anything you would love to read from me – just let me know!

Back soon x

    I felt the exact same way the past few weeks, but the spark is definitely back! Enjoy your time off and I can’t wait to see what you come back with. x

    I think a little break and recharge is just what’s needed sometimes. Hope you’re having a good few days off x

    Everyone needs a break sometimes. I knows it’s a weird and very geeky analogy but when I’m stuck on a tricky bit on a video game I always go away for a few hours/days and come back and usually in the meantime I’ve figured out what to do. Sorry, geekout over now! 🙂
