Hi everyone...wow, can you believe my last post was in March? Honestly, time flies!
I wasn't really planning on doing this but Kay told me I had to! =)
I don't want to give you some excuse like "I've been busy," but I have. More than that, I'd decided I had a lot of changes and improvements I wanted to make in my life, and that I wasn't anywhere near where I wanted to be...and that time was passing me by, so I had to focus, re-prioritize, and achieve the goals I set for myself but seemed so behind on. And even before that, I had already fallen behind on blogging (I have lots of pictures to be edited and half-written blog post drafts of reviews and new loves and purchases, etc.). It just didn't seem fair that I wasn't able to give my all to any of the many things I wanted to, including blogging.
Slowly but surely, my life has been changing. Now, it's almost summer and I can tell I'll be even busier, so I feel I owe it to you (if anyone's still reading!), to let you know that I'll be on a little blog break. I need time for myself to breathe and hopefully grow. I hope you can understand.
I have a few posts that I really want to put up still, I won't make any promises but if I find time then I'll post one here and there as I can.
I don't know how these next few months will be, whether I'll be back blogging regularly again and when that would be, but feel free to check up on my blog from time to time. If you're on Twitter, I'm still active (I can't help it, it's an addiction thanks to my phone).
When I first started this blog...do you know when that was? 2008! haha But my entries were few, and I didn't know my blog would become this random online place of my interests in beauty-/Japanese-/food-related things that it did...or that by becoming so, I'd meet and make so many sweet blogger and Twitter friends. =) So in case I never told you what you've been to me over this past year (I'm sorry, I haven't done a giveaway like I'd wanted to), I just want to say thank you and I truly appreciate you.
I've acquired so much makeup and spend much more on beauty products than I used to before blogging...sometimes it can be overwhelming or even frustrating. That's why I like to simplify sometimes...so I'll end this post with this photo I took back in early February 2009, that I never got around to posting. It was inspired by the "neo natural" look at the time (specifically a cover of VoCE magazine, and also think Beyonce's natural look of her album then).
I don't even remember exactly what makeup I used, but obviously not much. Maybe one day I'll recreate it again...but hopefully, it'll be better. =)
I hope you all have a wonderful summer and wish you an early happy Memorial Day!!
